Glycemic Index Recipes – Breakfast Tips and a Recipe Too!
Yes, breakfast IS the most significant meal of your day. It is this meal and what food choices you make at sunrise which either take from or add to your daily momentum. Try starting off the day aiming for low glycemic index recipes.
Here are glycemic index recipes tips (and a simple recipe too!) to begin your day, to help you go beyond the ‘on the go’ pouring of the same cereals and fruits day after day type of start that we have grown accustom to every morning. So instead of the ‘same old, same old’, try something different – actually cook up a little storm at sunrise. It does not have to involve complex ingredients.
By shifting away from old patterns and creating new menus for yourself involving low glycemic index recipes, you will find the added change to your lifestyle will go a long ways.
Take some time out of your busy schedule to actually prepare an ingredient filled recipe. If your morning is tight for time, prepare it at night before you go to bed. Then by morning, just toss the dish on the stove or into the microwave for a quick warm up.
Take the process of actually creating glycemic index recipes as enjoyment, and not a laborious chore. You may find the act of meal preparation at breakfast via a recipe to be just the key to getting you motivated in the morning.
Presented here is a delicious, yet simple recipe – a much needed ‘feeling full’ kind of meal to begin your day. The ingredients and preparation is basic, yet packed with food sources low on the glycemic index.
Ham and Swiss Cheese Grilled Sandwich
Two slices sour dough bread or rye (both moderately ranked on index)
Three ounces sliced deli ham (aim for the lean stuff)
Two slices low fat cheese (swiss it is!)
Olive oil (extra virgin)
Coat lightly, virgin olive oil onto slices of bread (either sourdough or rye). Put single slice Swiss cheese onto other side of bread. Put oiled side on frying pan and grilling at low to medium heat. Put sliced deli ham on top, while putting second slice of Swiss on top. Then top that with second slice of bread of choice – oil side up. Grilling first side lightly to a crispiness but not fried… flip it and repeat.
Also, accompany the above sandwich (or any glycemic index recipe at breakfast) with these low scoring index foods:
Apple juice (being low on the glycemic index) and low-fat yogurt with strawberries or blueberries, not to mention cherries if you choose – very low scoring.
Glycemic Index Recipes Pointers
Pure whole grains, sourdough and rye breads are highly recommended choices over white bread – hands down. The best tip with regards to glycemic index recipes has to be, you must once and for all cut out ALL white bread from your diet. White bread has very limited nutritional substance to it, converts to sugar extremely quick (no good), and has the reputation of being an empty calorie food source. Weight problems can often be linked to those who consume excessive amounts of white bread. Many people know this fact, without doubt, yet still grab that loaf of white bread versus rye, or sourdough as example alternatives. Now is the time for you to switch! Consider the above mentioned breads and also look over the glycemic index for the breads you like the most, and begin to consistently incorporate the lower scoring ones in place of white breads. Following this tip alone will go a long way for you!
