The first cookbook fully dedicated to using the slow cooker for making filling, tasty, low GI meals
For those with diabetes, heart disease, or simply a desire to get healthy, it can be difficult to follow a low-GI diet. This book shows readers how to in the easiest way possible--simply pour in ingredients, press a button, and walk away. With a slow cooker readers make everything from pulled pork tacos and beef picadillo lettuce wraps to coconut rice pudding and "baked" cinnamon-pecan apples. With detailed step-by-step instructions and beautiful color photos, these tasty meals impress friends and family. Best of all, they simultaneously minimize cholesterol, blood sugar, and the stress of cooking. By using foods that gradually and evenly increase blood glucose and insulin levels, the low-GI items in this book let readers feel fuller longer and increase their energy. Low-GI Slow Cooker Recipes explains the importance of the GI, sugar's effects on physiology, and how to incorporate GI knowledge into an eating plan.
