Professor Jennie Brand-Miller's Low GI Diet for Gluten-free Cooking
By Jennie Brand-Miller, Kate Marsh, Philippa Sandall
Widely recognised as the most significant dietary finding of the last twenty-five years, the glycemic index (GI) is an easy-to-understand measure of how foods affect blood glucose levels. Low GI diets improve health and weight control, lower 'bad' cholesterol and help prevent or reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart diseases, cancer and other chronic diseases. LOW GI GLUTEN-FREE COOKING explains clearly and simply how to combine the ground rules of a gluten-free diet with the lifelong health benefits of low GI eating to enable you to live well and stay healthy. It includes seven simple dietary guidelines for eating gluten-free and low GI; how to find and source gluten-free products; low GI substitutes for common high GI foods; 100 delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes with dishes for each meal of the day; GI tables with values for popular gluten-free foods.
