    Low GI Recipe: Mushroom-Thyme Orzotto

    I’ve just returned from our summer visit to our home in Friuli, Italy.  As always, I spent loads of time with my friend, Vanda.  When we are together we inevitably start talking about food – new recipes, seasonal ingredients and things like that.  This time was no different.  Since Vanda is not a pasta enthusiast (silly girl!), we discussed the different ways we use barley in our homes.  She uses it in place of arborio rice because, being diabetic, she’s found that her blood glucose levels are much better with barley consumption.  On the plane ride home, I started thinking about this recipe.  I made it for dinner the other night and we liked it.  I hope you will too. keep reading »

    Low GI Recipe: Shells with Pinto Beans

    This is a basic recipe that changes with the whim of the cook.  Variations are limited only by one’s imagination and culinary curiosity.  Italian cooks are naturally drawn to add in seasonal produce (spinach, cauliflower, green beans, etc.) or possibly something left over in the fridge (peperonata, canned plum tomatoes, grilled eggplant, chicken breasts, etc.).  Go for it! keep reading »

    Low GI Recipe: Zucchine Carbonara Lite Spaghetti

    The traditional carbonara recipe contains a whole raw egg and bacon, among other scrumptious ingredients.  This is my vegetarian version that also eliminates even a minimal fear of Salmonella by using a pasteurized egg white product instead of a raw egg.  My dinner guests, even those seated around my table in Friuli, don’t seem to mind at all.  As with all of my recipes, additions and subtractions can be made as desired.  In fact, I was thinking about trying this recipe next time with a chopped toasted pinoli topping. keep reading »

    Low GI Recipe: Seafood Mushroom Lasagna

    Everyday meals are great when they are not only good tasting, but also quick and easy to make.  Meals for special occasions, on the other hand, are usually given special attention by Italian cooks and may require some extra time to plan and prepare.  Lasagne is often the first choice for a special menu.  keep reading »


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.
