my favourite recipe book,
This review is from: Low-GI Vegetarian Cookbook (Paperback)I bought this book on a whim. At the time I was fed up of veggie cookbooks full of recipes with cheese in, and was looking for something lighter as I wanted to lose weight. I also needed to try and stablise my blood sugar for health reasons.
My copy is covered with food and water stains. I keep it permanently in the kitchen and use it whenever I'm stuck for inspiration for a dish.
I have found this an extremely useful book - okay so not all of the recipes are truly low-gi but Rose Elliot does state which ones don't fit the low-gi model in her introductions. The starred recipes, of which there are many, are low-gi and stated by the author to be 'perfect for slimmers'. Particular favourites of mine are 'Pizza Bake' and 'Slow Cooked Black Beans', both starred recipes.
All in all I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a change from cheese laden veggie recipes and who maybe wants to lose a little weight.
