    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 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 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

    This would be yummy for any day but it is Christmas inspired because I made it on Boxing Day morning out of leftovers I had floating around from Christmas day. Plus, after eating so much the day before it was kind of nice to start the next day with a healthy breakfast. If you use Splenda instead of sugar this is pretty diabetic friendly too.

    Recipe #345361

    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

    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

    Hummus is one of my favorite foods and I also love deviled eggs. So, when I saw this in a flyer handed out for the 'Summer Fresh Hummus' company I wanted to jot it down. You could surely use the discarded yolks for something else so it doesn't feel wasteful.

    Recipe #341801

    I bought some dried mango from a food market today and wanted to see if I could do something different with it. My idea was to do something with a Caribbean theme to its flavors but it certainly isn't authentic. I used chicken from a store bought rotisserie chicken to make this extra easy. The recipe could easily be scaled up to feed more.

    Recipe #368091

    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 grabbed this during my raid of my mother's cookbook shelf on my last trip back to the States. This one comes from a Reader's Digest booklet called 'Attack Diabetes With Food'. I am curious to see how the prunes work in the mixture.

    Recipe #341186

    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

    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 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

    I really enjoy falafel but I haven't had it since I started my weight loss 'journey' because when I get it at a takeaway shop I am never sure how they made it and how much oil has gone into frying it, etc. So, when I saw this recipe in the Autumn 2008 copy of BBC Easy Cook magazine, I decided to put it here so that I can learn to make my own.

    Recipe #323972

    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

    This sounds like an interesting dip. I saw it in a cookbook put out by Prevention magazine when I was on vacation at my parents' place and wanted to put in on here to have when I am back in the UK.

    Recipe #341833

    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

    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

    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

    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.
