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'm always on the look out for new things to do with beans. This is something that looks good to me for sure. I think it would be nice served with a white fish or maybe pork. I found this recipe in the March 2008 copy of BBC Good Food Magazine. The recipe says that it can be frozen.

Recipe #286459

I am really coming to enjoy lentils which is something I never would have anticipated in the past but they really are versatile. I stole this off a a vegan website and have been meaning to try it. I am sticking it here so I don't forget I have it. They didn't list serving amounts so I am guessing a tad.

Recipe #286411

I came up with this when I was looking to use up a cooked chicken breast I had in the fridge. I wanted an easy lunch but something healthy and tasty too. I usually eat this with two lightly "buttered" (with low fat margarine) slices of bread but it is also good served on a bed of mixed lettuce leaves. The cooking time includes the chilling time.

Recipe #279361

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

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

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

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

In my ongoing weight loss journey I have had to find ways of adapting my favorite dishes to be healthier and lower in fat. This is my new coleslaw recipe that cuts out most of the fat and packs in some more healthy goodness with the sprouts. I use home grown (it only takes 3 days!) mung bean sprouts.

Recipe #253812

I am a big fan of salmon. It is full of omega 3 and generally tasty and good for you. I am always looking for new salmon recipes to add to our rotation. I found this one in the August 2008 copy of BBC Good Food Magazine.

Recipe #316772

Another recipe collected in my hunt for healthy recipes. I found this in the British TV chef Anthony Worrall Thompson's 'GI Diet' book. I eat a lot of low glycemic index meals as they help with with my insulin resistance.

Recipe #277286

I recently discovered celeriac (celery root) and am looking for different ways to use it. I like root vegetable mash so this sounds good. I found this recipe in the February 2008 copy of the BBC Good Food Magazine.

Recipe #281349

One of the trendiest soups over here in the UK at the moment is carrot and coriander soup. Coriander is the same thing as cilantro only by a different name. I have enjoyed this soup but because of my dietary requirements have avoided it because creamy soups like this so often use a lot of cream. So, I was happy to find this version of the soup in the August 2008 copy of BBC Good Magazine because it doesn't use any dairy at all. I have now tried the recipe and think it is fantastic. It is very rich and creamy tasting without any at all.

Recipe #316807

We eat a lot of bean based soups in this house and I am always looking for another one to try. Cannellini beans are some of my favorites so I had to grab this recipe when I saw it in the Winter 2008 copy of the BBC Easy Cook magazine. The recipe states that it is suitable for freezing.

Recipe #292594

Yet another discovery in my quest to collect healthy recipes. I found this one in the March 2008 copy of the BBC Good Food Magazine. It is nice to see a chicken and beans recipe that isn't tomato based and uses more than just a chicken breast. There is no reason a chicken thigh can't be super tasty and healthy. The recipe states that the dish can be frozen.

Recipe #286470

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 just saw this side dish on the UKTV Food program called Market Kitchen. It was part of a larger meal but since I am always looking for ways to cook healthy things like lentils it grabbed my eye. I am putting it on here so that I don't forget about it. It looks really easy because of the use of canned lentils.

Recipe #278885

I am a big fan of chickpeas and chorizo so this sounds like a good bet. I found this recipe in February 2008 copy of the British cookery magazine, Olive.

Recipe #281367

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

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

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.
