Low-Glycemic Recipes

In this category you’ll find delicious and healthy plant-based low-glycemic recipes that won’t wreak havoc on your blood sugar levels. These recipes are also suitable for everyone living Candida-free. That is people who have passed the cleanse phase and are reintroducing foods back into their diet.

It can be a challenge to find plant-based low-glycemic recipes online. It’s because most vegan recipes contain high-glycemic foods such as flours, dried fruits, sugars and other processed foods.

My plant-based low-glycemic recipes are mostly made of the low-glycemic foods. Those foods are leafy greens, vegetables, tubers, nuts and seeds, berries, fresh fruits, as well as whole grains and legumes.

Furthermore, occasionally my low-glycemic recipes also include low GI sweeteners like xylitol, erythritol, and coconut sugar.

You’ll find me baking with whole groats instead of flours and sometimes even sprouting my lentils, beans and grains before using them in a recipe.

What Is a Low-Glycemic Diet?

You’re eating a low-glycemic recipes, if you don’t get more than 20 GL points from one meal and not more than 100 GL points daily.

Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load

You’ve probably seen the abbreviation GI (glycemic index) before on food packages. This tells you whether the carbohydrate in the particular food is a “slow” or “fast” type of carbohydrate.

What glycemic index doesn’t do is indicate how large the proportion of the carbohydrate is and how it’ll affect your blood sugar levels. The deficiency has led nutritionists towards the development of the improved index GL (glycemic load), which is the GI multiplied with the regular helping (portion) of the particular food. This index enables you to obtain a much better idea of the actual impact on the blood sugar level.
