Low GI Recipe: Sergio’s Eggs “al Tegamino”

Uova al Tegamino

My husband, Sergio, grew up in post-World War II war-torn northern Italy.  Food was not plentiful but fresh eggs were always available for consumption, though not in excess.  His family, like most other families in the neighborhood, owned 1 or 2 hens that they could always rely on for an evening’s meal.  Sergio ate this at least once a week back then.  He loves to make this recipe – for the good taste and for the good memories.

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.
