Low-Glycemic Cooking - Please Help! (not holiday related)

lovessushi | Dec 25, 2010 09:28 AM

Bf has an issue going on and is working with low-glycemic eating. So far it seems to be helping tremendously. The problem is that I'm running out of ideas of what to cook. I went to the library, got a g.i. cookbook and some diabetic cookbooks (diabetic cookbooks not helpful in this case) and that's somewhat helpful.

I've also been trying out vegetarian cookbooks, the joy of cooking (vegetable recipes, meat recipes) and pretty much anything I can make without carbs. But this is not just low carb eating!

Yesterday I made a portobello mushroom pizza - bland, but with work would be good, meatballs without breadcrumbs (overcooked but otherwise tasty) and broccoli with garlic and oil

My main issue is he's become seriously meat dependent which a) is bad for cholesterol and b) is getting expensive. And the second main issue is that nothing's ever filling or satisfying enough it would seem.

I still have to work with the cookbooks I have - it's only been a week, so I really shouldn't be complaining yet...but it looks like a long road ahead!

Anyone familiar with this? Anyone have thoughts? Recipes? Can send aid in the form of their personal chef? ;) lol

Thanks in advance!!
