I used fresh tomatoes in place of canned, no okra, added mushrooms.

Oh Susan thank you, I love eggplant!!!

So for dinner tonight I made

Turkey chili (ground turkey, kidney beans, tomato sauce, canned diced tomatoes, chili seasoning packet) Okay a little high on sodium if you are watching.

Low GI and thankfully beans are a low GI food and full of fiber!

I had a nice post typed out when the site crashed. Let me try again.

I like this idea. I'll start with the dinner I've made a couple of times lately.


eggplant parmigiana emoticon

I used this recipe to bake eggplant:
recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=553482


Then added marinara sauce and low-fat mozzarella cheese, and micowaved until cheese melted and sauce was hot (first time I heated it on stove top, but microwave worked).

To make it an even better meal, I served it with this kale salad:
recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=1992764

We really loved the salad and the dressing that is linked in the recipe.

It made for a very tasty, very filling, and very satisfying dinner. It's on the menu for tonight, too. emoticon

How about we just start listing one of our favs everyday that is Low or Medium GI, even say a whole meal which most likely would be low or med anyway..or maybe something was high but a low evened it out???

Thoughts everyone???

Cool Val, I actually posted all the foods on the one thread from that website..and have the link somewhere on the links as well. I'll have to start referring to it myself.

What I didn't realize though was you can use the alphabet at the top of the page where is groups green, yellow and red foods on one page...see learn something new every day!

Apricots raw (34) - Strange says medium food on the website? I guess eventually everyone will sync up the right information.

eggs, whole, raw - emoticon

The first website I checked them with
www.gilisting.com/easy-gi-diet/2006/
07
/glycemic-index-list.html

actually listed them as a high glycemic food much to my shock so I checked it out in The Low G.I. Shoppers Guide to GI Values 2013 book which is excellent and of course it said that whole raw eggs were low glycemic as they have no carbs. Sometimes it's best to double check if it doesn't sound right.

FYI -
a GL greater than 20 is considered high, a GL of 11-19 is considered medium, and a GL of 10 or less is considered low. Foods that have a low GL in a typical serving size almost always have a low GI - from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycemic_load )

so based on the above
the Nutri Grain Cereal Bars would be considered Medium and a emoticon

Popcorn, air popped - emoticon

Next letter "p"

Couldn't resist to include some interesting information:

Popcorn is relatively high in fiber - a cup of air-popped popcorn contains just over a gram of fiber. It also contains 1 gram of protein and 6 grams of carbohydrate. It contains no cholesterol, it is virtually fat-free (only 0.1 g per cup) and contains only 100 to 150 calories in a serving of 5 popped cups. You can find a nutrient profile for various popcorn snacks at: http://ndb.nal.usda.gov then click "Start Your Search Here" and enter "snacks, popcorn".

Popcorn also has a relatively good glycemic index (GI). The GI, which describes how much blood sugar increases after eating foods that contain carbohydrates, is based on a scale from 1 to 100. The higher the value the more your blood sugar will rise. Foods with a high GI are rapidly digested and absorbed; they produce marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels. Low-GI foods, are slowly digested and absorbed; they produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels. Low GI diets have proven health benefits. They improve both glucose and lipid levels in people with type 1, as well as type 2, diabetes. Because they are slowly absorbed, they help in weight control because they help control appetite and delay hunger.

Air-popped popcorn has a GI of 55 - at the upper end of low-GI foods. Compare that to an apple with a GI value of 30-40 and 13-16 grams of carbohydrate, or to two slices of white bread with a GI of 88 and 12-14 grams carbohydrates.

As popcorn is 100 percent unprocessed grain, it is a whole-grain food. One serving can provide about 70 percent of the recommended daily intake of whole grain. Popcorn also contains a number of vitamins: folate, niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, and vitamins B6, A, E and K. A serving of popcorn contains about 8 percent of the daily value of iron, with lesser amounts of calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.

The popcorn hull is the source of much of the food's nutritional value. Hulls contain beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin that are important in maintaining eye health. They also contain polyphenols with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties believed to protect against cancer and cardiovascular disease. Researchers at the University of Scranton, PA, recently reported that popcorn contains up to 300 mg polyphenols per serving which is more than 60 percent of the polyphenols provided by fruits and vegetables in the average American diet.

These health benefits are derived from air-popped popcorn. They are diminished by adding too much salt or too much butter or margarine. These should be used sparingly. For variety, try olive oil instead of butter or margarine. Instead of salt, try a mixture of dried herbs such as basal and oregano with a dash of salt. Put this on the air-popped popcorn just after popping as this is when the moisture from the steam released during the popping process helps the seasonings stick to the popcorn. Or try lightly spraying the popcorn with a non-butter flavored cooking spray before sprinkling on your seasonings.

So next time you hear and smell popcorn popping, remember it can actually be a healthy snack food. Just prepare it correctly (air-popped), limit the salt, and avoid calorie-loaded toppings. www.ars.usda.gov/News/docs.htm?docid

Susan, I think with raisins if you are putting in oatmeal and salads, I believe would even out the GI a bit. I think combing does that.

I was a little afraid to look at this one. I love raisins in my oatmeal, on top of salads, or with some nuts as a snack. I usually use 1 oz in each. I'll have to think about whether to continue. I know I could switch to blueberries and enjoy it at least as much.

The IF (Inflammation Factor) Rating™ estimates the inflammatory or anti-inflammatory potential of individual foods or combinations of foods by calculating the net effect of different nutritional factors, such as fatty acids, antioxidants, and glycemic impact.

How to interpret the values: Foods with positive IF Ratings are considered anti-inflammatory, and those with negative IF Ratings are considered inflammatory. The higher the number, the stronger the effect. The goal is to balance negative foods with positive foods so that the combined rating for all foods eaten in a single day is positive.

I tried to see what 1 cup of blueberries would be with no luck. I did see the glycemic load of blueberries is 3 for 1/2 cup and another site showed 6 for 1 cup, but I also know loads add up to keep below a certain number per day. I don't think the gi works that way.

I love mixed berries - 1/4 cup blueberries, 9 raspberries (yes I count them - I'm a counter of all things emoticon ), and 3 strawberries. Raspberries have a gi of less than 40 and strawberries are 40. The combo is so much better than any one by itself. This morning I added them to my oatmeal, along with cinnamon. emoticon

I meant to add that I love to put nuts in my fruit salads. I also put some in my oatmeal - sooooo good.

Thanks Susan, I do love watermelon as well,,but would definitely pair it up with perhaps other lower gi fruits or protein..yummy.

Rubbarb, never hear of how to eat them...

Can't find a single "U" food, so I'll go with "B"

Blueberries (53) 1/2 of cup..so what does that mean a cup is (106)..I get so confused sometime.

Next letter "U" again!

Thank you Susan, for that info, that makes me feel better. I think it's good to eat fruit. I also, enjoy oranges very much. I'm not going to stress too much over fruit anymore, even if it does have a high GI, I think if you mix it with protein, maybe the "load" is better. I'm still learning all this.

R for Rhubarb = Low GI emoticon

Next letter is "U"

My son told my that the leaves of rhubard are poisonous. Has anybody ever heard that. I know people don't normally eat the leaves, or rhubard, unless it's something you like, but just wondering if anyone else had heard that. I remember eating rhubard pie as a kid a few times. It was pretty good, with lots of sugar! emoticon

I'm still unsure about glycemic loads. According to this, they don't discourage watermelon from a low glycemic meal plan -

Watermelon (GI 72; GL 4): This delicious summer fruit may at first look like a high-glycemic food with its glycemic index of 72, but it actually has a very low glycemic load. Why? Because it’s made up of a lot of water, hence the name. Watermelon is also loaded in antioxidants with high levels of both vitamin C and vitamin A. It also contains lycopene, which is shown to be helpful for heart health.

Yea, Susan, I'll get there, I already mix fruit with my cottage cheese. I am going to make an effort at the lower fat dairy products. I also need to watch my cholesterol. I think it just takes a lot of determination to get to where we want to be. Deb, I think you said one time, like if I ate watermelon with a protein, or low GI food it would be ok? Is that correct? :)

Tracy, I actually prefer non or low fat for both cottage cheese and milk. My problem is my husband insists on 2% for both. I don't like buying 2 cartons of each, though I have been doing that for milk. I should just do it for cottage cheese, too. We usually have our cottage with fruit (cantaloupe or berries). I wonder if that would help you enjoy the non or low fat variety.

That is what I have a hard time with, Susan. See, I love the cottage cheese and also milk, but I can't bring myself to get the low, or non-fat, 2% is what I really enjoy. I guess I just need to really put my mind to it and spice it up a bit more, maybe with chia seeds and non-salt spices. Now the milk, umm, I don't much care for the non-fat or low fat. emoticon

Mmmm, Mmmmm Good,

That's what your soup sounds like, Susan!

I like to take canned tomato soup and add some canned diced, etc., type tomatoes...

M is next.

A few years ago I had a bumper crop of tomatoes and looked for a recipe to make my own soup. I adjusted the recipe to suit my needs and it's the only way we'll eat tomato soup now.

L is next.

If you don't know this one, it's a cross between grapefruit, oranges, and tangerines. I had it once on vacation in the Caribbean, so I'm not sure how available it might be. It was pretty good, but I'd probably just stick to oranges.

N is next.


I'm not a big pancake eater, but rarely I just feel like having them for breakfast. I have used both of these SP recipes before:
recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=425025

recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=101304


I usually top them with fruit, or once in a while sugar-free syrup. They are just enough to satisfy my craving, and I won't think about it again for months.

As with all things, GI ratings seem to depend on the source.

According to "The Low GI Shopper's Guide to GI Values 2013" by Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller and Kaye Foster-Powell,

1/2 sweet potato, baked is 46 - low
1 med sweet potato, peeled, cubed, and boiled in salted water 15 mins. is 59 - med
1/2 cup yam, peeled, boiled is 54 - low

Interesting, and ...

Re Dairy Queen soft serve vanilla ice cream,

I couldn't find the GI, however, I could find the GL, which is the glycemic load ( a number that estimates how much the food will raise a person's blood glucose level after eating it - a GL greater than 20 is considered high, a GL of 11-19 is considered medium, and a GL of 10 or less is considered low. Foods that have a low GL in a typical serving size almost always have a low GI - from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycemic_load ) Soooooo ....

According to nutritiondata.self.com/facts/foods-f
ro
m-dairy-queen/6645/2
, the GL of Dairy Queen soft serve vanilla ice cream is 11 - just barely into the medium rating.

Continuing with "E",
evaporated milk - emoticon

Next is "A".
