Healthy and Delicious Low Carb Recipes

If you think eating low carb means rich meals of porterhouse steaks smothered with blue cheese and butter, think again.

In fact, eating low carb can mean home-style favorites like pot pie and pizza as well as more “indulgent” foods like pancakes, bagels, donuts, cookies, muffins, bread and even candy! All it takes are some intelligent ingredient substitutions and a little recipe know-how.

Low Carb Versus Slow Carb

But what is more important than low carb is slow carb. Slow carbs are slow-burning, low glycemic carbs that help keep your blood sugar stable, while fueling your body with a sustained source of energy.

High glycemic carbs – which turn quickly into sugar in your body and spike insulin levels – only fuel your body with one thing : disease.

That’s because your blood sugar is directly linked to your risk of nearly every chronic disease including diabetes, heart disease, cataracts, macular degeneration, obesity and cancer.  High glycemic foods also speed physical aging, contribute to PCOS and promote amyloid plaque – the substance associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

Filling your plate with antioxidant-rich veggies, clean meats and healthy fats, accompanied by low glycemic carbs is the Healing Gourmet recipe for health.
