The Low GI Diet Cookbook
Prof Jennie Brand-Miller, Kaye Foster-Powell and Joanna McMillan-Price
The Low GI Diet Cookbook from the creators of The Low GI Diet is packed with mouth-watering meals, snacks and treats to help you put the GI to work in your kitchen—and throughout your day. The book is filled with low GI recipes that the authors love to cook themselves. They come from their own home kitchens; and the kitchens of their families, friends and favourite celebrity chefs and food writers such as Antonio Carluccio, Margaret Fulton, Julie Le Clerc, Luke Mangan, and Rick Stein.
The Low GI Diet is more than a weight-loss plan. It’s a simply delicious way of eating based on choosing low GI carbohydrates – the smart ones that produce only gentle rises in your blood glucose and insulin levels. Lowering insulin levels is a key factor in helping you shed unwanted kilos, and the secret to long-term health, reducing your risk of diabetes and heart disease.
High in nutrition and full of flavour the low GI recipes here are rich in lean proteins, good fats, vital vegetables and healthy wholegrains. They represent a way of eating that’s part and parcel of many ethnic cuisines. Having stood the test of time, they are naturally and simply delicious. From cook’s tips and serving suggestions, to fitness and shopping tips, there’s never been a better or more attractive way to live the Low GI way.
