The perfect follow on from the highly successful 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet. Low carb, low calorie, low sugar; each recipe lists the calories, protein, fat, fibre and carb content so you cannot go wrong with this diet. I love that many recipes add legumes to the mix – filling, high fibre and rich in protein and low cost, I am adding legumes where ever I can to my meals. There is even a recipe for a chocolate kidney bean cake (p.189) the authors’ state: “We cooked this for a bunch of teenagers who liked it and never got close to guessing that the main ingredient was kidney beans.” What do you think? Would you be able to guess? I think I might just have to make this cake and see who I can surprise J (you can also use this recipe to make cupcakes- what a great idea!)
There are many recipes in this book that lend themselves to everyday cooking – and I am sure I will be incorporating more than a few into our diet: Berry coulis or “jam” – made with chia seeds – I keep hearing so much about this style of “jam” I might have to try it out, roasted fruit, kimchi, Thai fish cakes, Moroccan meatballs, chili con carne, easy Bolognese, Vietnamese pho, laksa, haloumi kebabs and many great breakfast and brunch ideas. You will not be bored if you plan your meals from this book and you might just reduce your blood sugar levels too!
Sounds very interesting, Carol. I’ve heard about the blood sugar diet, and it’ll be interesting to know what the suggested recipes are like. It’s always worth thinking about new ways to eat healthy.
Exactly Margot – new food ideas are great – I love trying out something new, meal time can get boring. I hope you enjoy the recipes coming up.
