I'm a vegetarian trying to limit my carbs and increase my protein so I experimented a few times with bean flour tortilla shells. This was the biggest success!
It's a great texture and flavour and a good source of vegetarian protein. One 12" shell is 217 cals, 20g carbs (of which 10g is fibre), 23g protein and less than 6g fat.
For comparison, a 12" wheat tortilla is 275-325 calories with 50g carbs (just 3g fibre), 8g protein and 7g fat.
Sushi rice has a very high glycemic rating, but must a person with blood sugar issues forego tasty sushi? Here's one take on a solution with only 20 grams of carbs and SO many vitamins! Yummy!
Tasty breaded tofu with herbs and cheese inside! It's elegant and surprisingly easy.
From the Small Planet Cookbook. High protein, high-fibre, low-GI bread baked for small slices.
Inventing this recipe cured me of a grumpy mood! It's a quick, filling, light-and-fresh and crunchy-yet-creamy snack or appetiser that is rich in nutrients, protein and flavour.
For meals where you want lots of vegetarian protein and a fair amount of healthy fats, but not too many carbs. Rich-tasting and delicious, under 250 cals per slice!
According to the GI Diet, baby potatoes, cooked "al dente", and re-cooled for use in salads are low-GI. Sounds like alchemy/voodoo to me, but I do love potato salad!
This one uses nonfat yogurt, low-fat mayo, cooked, chopped egg whites and finely diced tangy veggies like pickles, radishes, green peppers and whatever strikes your fancy! Adjust as needed... This calorie calculation is for one 1/2 cup serving but the recipe is for four- servings.
