Low GI Recipe: Fortified Scrambled Eggs

Italians don’t really eat eggs for breakfast but we do, whether we are in Morristown (New Jersey) or in Nimis (Friuli). Adding in some ricotta is a terrific way to fortify eggs with calcium, making this recipe a perfect choice for a simple, wholesome breakfast. In all honesty, these eggs taste so much better when I make them in Italy. I’m sure the freshly made ricotta from the local dairy farm has much to do with it!

Gushers vs Tricklers


"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
