Question "The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking book

I just purchased a book for my Nook called "The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking, 80 low-carb recipes that offer solutions for Celiac Disease, Diabetes and Weight Loss" written by Peter Reinhart and Denene Wallace. The way it's written appears to follow LCHF guidelines.

I'm wondering if anyone here has read this book and baked from it. They go into detail about the way carbs affect diabetics and also Celiac Disease and weight loss.

Once my bg is under control, I'm going to try some of the recipes, but I'd love to hear from an experienced diabetic who's tried it out. I know we need to test, test, test after ingesting something new, and I will certainly do that. Just wanted to see if anyone's tried it.

Unless you can locate the recipes online and provide a link where they are found, posting them here from the book is likely to violate copyright laws.

You're right, it would be. I'll search and see if any of the recipes are found anywhere on the internet.

I did a search on Amazon for the book and just scanned the "Look Inside" option. They seem to be into the glycemic index/load and when I saw the part about the "good carbs we need to round out a healthful diet" I kind of lost interest. They only show 3 recipes in the preview, 2 used garbanzo bean flour. I don't know if that is diabetic friendly or not. The third used hazelnut flour for a bread and it look fine for a lc/hf diet. There are probably many recipes that are just fine and others that aren't, it's a ymmv situation.

Shanny and Daytona like this.

I haven't read the book but have really liked the Low-carbing Among Friends cookbook series. They are all low-carb and gluten-free recipes and all the ones I have tried have turned out well.
