    Sarah_Jayne's Low Gi Recipes

    In my quest to eat healthier I have adopted a Low Gi eating style. I don't follow any particular Low Gi diet but instead I just try to make sure most of what I eat is made up of ingredients which have a low glycemic index rating. These are a collection of recipes which I consider to be Low Gi.

    I am always on the hunt for healthy recipes and new ways to use vegetables that I already like. I never really think of not cooking zucchini but this sounds good. It is the recipe of British TV chef Merrilees Parker and was first published in the August 2005 issue of BBC Good Food Magazine.

    Recipe #276931

    We had this for our main meal tonight. I rather heavily adapted it from the UK tv chef, Simon Rimmer's book 'Accidental Vegetarian'. I knocked out most of the fat he had in it (though it was all good fat) and changed around some ingredients to make it more low GI friendly. On top of being tasty this is pretty healthy. It is vegetarian, vegan, low fat, nearly saturated fat free and great for those of us with insulin issues because it is full of slow burning carbs with a low glycemic load. You could of course use normal spaghetti rather than the whole wheat kind but I use that just because it has a ton of fibre in it.

    Recipe #301361

    This is another attempt at me trying to find low fat and low calories 'treats' that also pack a bit of flavor. I am a pickles freak so I would pretty much be happy with any cucumber and vinegar combo but I especially like these when I want a more delicate flavor. They are good as a side with dishes like salmon or I even sometimes just put a few on a sandwich when I want some zest without any fat. I make this with Splenda because I really don't want the sugar as I am counting fat and calories.

    Recipe #254976

    I enjoy coming up with different types of oven fries to satisfy my craving for fries while still staying within the ranges of my low fat diet. This is my most recent creation. My husband went 'mmmm' when he tasted the first one. So, i am thinking it is worth posting and sharing :)

    Recipe #367434

    I have just pulled my head out of the avocado sand and discovered that I really like them. So, I have been experimenting with ways to use them in my diet. This was this morning's breakfast. For some reason it reminded me of Mexico. All I needed was a warm breeze instead of cold London.

    Recipe #368409

    I am collecting recipes for my New Year venture back into a largely vegetarian diet. This looks like something my husband and myself will enjoy so I am sticking it here for safe keeping. I found it in the 2008 copy of the yearly 'Vegetarian Christmas' special put out by BBC Good Food Magazine. You can pick the heat of curry paste or powder that will suit your family.

    Recipe #345555

    I am a big fan of pearl barley as it is cheap, tasty, healthy and very filling. This sounds like a great new way to enjoy pearl barley with a bit of an Italian flare. I originally found this recipe in the BBC Good Food Magazine.

    Recipe #305563

    I am trying to push full forced with my diet to finally reach my 100lbs lost target. So, I am collecting every low fat recipe that looks good to me and this is the latest one. I found it in the April 2009 of BBC good food magazine. The recipe says that the uncooked burgers can be frozen so they would be good to make ahead and have when I need something quick but also healthy.

    Recipe #362015

    These tuna burgers are a great way to get people that don't think they like fish to eat and enjoy it. These burgers are very low fat, particularly for a burger, easy to make and taste really good. The wasabi paste I used didn't overpower the other flavors but added a nice background taste but if you wanted a stronger strength you could certainly use more of the paste. The cooking time includes the 30 minute chilling time.

    Recipe #303127

    I found this recipe on fatfreevegan.com some time ago and wanted to put it here so all my healthy recipes are in one place. They say this is a Weight Watchers recipes and that is 4 points per serving.

    Recipe #276845

    I have been playing around lately with trying to make different kinds of reduced fat burgers to go with the low fat eating plan I am on. This is my latest attempt. I used ground turkey breast so that I didn't feel that bad about having a little bit of fat from the sundried tomatoes but at least it is 'good' fats. The cooking time includes the one hour chilling time.

    Recipe #304891

    This sounds like a nice way to use up all those extra zucchinis and tomatoes that so many people have from their gardens in the summer. I found this recipe in the August 2008 copy of BBC Good Food Magazine.

    Recipe #316786

    This is a super simple and tasty side dish. I think celery is an underused vegetable and this is a nice way of using it. The vegetable stock can be a little bit salty so if you don't use a low sodium variety this is best served with a meal that doesn't otherwise have a lot of salt.

    Recipe #279177

    Another healthy looking recipe I have collected and intend to try. I am eating a lot of beans and pulses these days and another way to use chickpeas is never a bad thing. I collected this recipe from the February 2008 copy of the BBC Good Food Magazine. The recipe says that it is suitable for freezing.

    Recipe #281527

    It is Friday again and that means it is another chance for me to try to invent a healthier burger. This week we actually wanted a beef burger so I wanted to try to get it low fat but still moist and tasty. I had the idea of a horseradish and mushroom burger and this is what came out of those thoughts. The mushrooms are used sort of in place of breadcrumbs and their high moisture content helps to keep things moist. I think I may have thought that the horseradish would have been a stronger taste but in reality it was rather mellow but nice. If you want more of a bite from the horseradish I would suggest spreading a bit of the horseradish sauce on your burger bun as much more in the mix might make it too moist to hold up. Cooking time includes the chilling time.

    Recipe #300793

    This is my latest concoction in my mission to bring healthier food to my household. Over the past few weeks I have been using Fridays to try out different versions of healthier burgers. Tonight we had these Thai inspired turkey burgers. They had a fresh taste and I think it is important to use the fresh versions of the ingredients rather than dried spices to get that taste. I had mine on a bun with some crisp lettuce and some fat free mayo and ketchup. I bet they would be really nice with some sweet chili sauce in place of the ketchup and mayo though. These could easily be made up and frozen raw to have ready when short of time. Cooking time includes chilling time.

    Recipe #299431

    Mushrooms are my favorite food and I especially like marinated mushrooms. It is really hard to get marinated mushrooms in the UK though. So, I was really happy to find this recipe in the BBC Good Food magazine. It is from the Australian TV cook, Bill Granger. I really like his simple and healthy recipes.

    Recipe #276716

    I have become a real fan of pearl barley over the last year or so of trying move to a healthier way of eating. Now and then I play around to see if I can do something new with it because I really think it is an underused food item. Particularly as it low fat and the sort of slow burning carb that is great for those of us trying to control our insulin. For this recipe I used a mild chili powder because but I am a spice wimp. So, if your family likes things hotter go for a medium or even a hot strength chili powder.

    Recipe #301761

    This vegetable and barely soup is stuffed full of healthy and tasty veggies and it tastes great too. You can throw everything in the crockpot before you leave for work and have a warm, filling and healthy soup waiting for you and your hungry family. Perfect for those chilly fall and winter nights. If you wanted to keep things vegetarian you could easily use vegetable stock in place of chicken stock.

    Recipe #330875

    If you read through my recipes you will find a number of recipes using lentils. Over the past year or so of eating a healthier diet I have come to know and enjoy lentils a great deal. So, when I see a new recipe involving lentils I like to add it to my collection. This one I found in the Winter 2008 version of the BBC Easy Cook magazine. The recipe says that it is able to be frozen.
