Enjoy Easy-to- Prepare Savory and Spicy Dishes with a Low Glycemic Index
We are pleased to announce a new section to this website where we will present recipes for people who are concerned about eating healthy and keeping their blood sugar low. These dishes are superbly tasty, yet they are low in carbohydrates and sugars. In general, we have tried to keep the carbohydrate content of each recipe here below 35% of the total energy content of the dish. These recipes are for anyone, but especially for those who are diabetic or have high blood sugar levels.
By minimizing or avoiding ingredients such as grains and grain flour. This is because grains and preparations that use any type of grain flour produce high levels of glucose. This leads to the elevation of blood sugar and a robust release of the pancreatic hormone, insulin. Too much insulin can promote several unhealthy conditions, and may be a factor in the causation of cancer. These recipes also reduce the amount of carbohydrate available for growth of the wrong type of intestinal bacteria.
In these dishes, we strive to use natural, seasonal, and minimally processed vegetables in an attempt to increase the fiber content. This invites you to chew each bite of food slowly to release flavor-producing nutrients that stimulate the taste and smell receptors in your mouth. Natural vegetable fiber also slows the intestinal transit of food, thereby minimizing glucose spike after digestion and absorption.
How to enjoy these dishes
We suggest that you eat each of these dishes, chewing slowly to maximize your enjoyment based on the quality and flavors of the food, rather than quantity of what you eat. Many of these dishes make use of easy to find spices that can provide up to a quarter of nutrients needed in your body while enhancing the enjoyment of each dish. Compared to eating food with only a limited numbers of spices, the addition of a variety of spices in our recipes provides your body with access to many nutrients in a form that is natural and familiar to humans for thousands of years. We believe that if your body needs a particular nutrient, first look for how nature has packaged it.
To enhance your eating pleasure, we suggest that you sip warm water to cleanse your taste buds thoroughly between each bite of food. The warm air generated inside your mouth through this process will also help clear the nutrients already in your smell receptors so you can enjoy the next bite. But when doing this, don’t breathe through your mouth. This means not talking when there is food inside the mouth.
Paying attention to your brain’s signals about hunger, eating mindfully, chewing slowly and stopping your meal based on a real sense of satisfaction (satiation) is the most effective way to avoid overeating, allowing you to maintain your authentic weight for the rest of your life.
