The Low GI Slow Cooker

The Low GI Slow CookerThe glcemiv index provides a measure of how quickly blood sugar levels rise after eating a particular type of food. Recent studies have shown that a diet based on low-GI foods offer significant benefits for weight control, diabetes prevention, and coronary heart disease. I can attest to that with my almost 80 lb. weight loss.

With The Low-GI Slow Cooker cookbook, you will be able to easily throw a few ingredients into your slow cooker and come home to French Toast Casserole, Chocolate Peanut Butter Custard, or Pulled Pork Tacos! The majority of the ingredients found in this cookbook are easy to find. I love that each recipe in here also has a nutritional chart! The directions are easy to follow also and yummy!

What Color Is Your Smoothie?

I love Smoothies. My favorite are the ones with strawberries in them. However, I never realized how many different varieties you can make.

What Color Is Your Smoothie? has more than 300 smoothie recipes that are organized by color for relative vitamin and mineral benefit. What I love about this smoothie cookbook is that you can easily add in fruits and vegetables to your diet and it is so easy! Smoothies are an easy way to maximize your fruit and vegetable consumption.

There are just so many recipes to choose from. You can have everything from a Sweet Berry Swirl to a Sweet Spinach Smoothie to Great Garlic. There is just so many things you can make into a yummy smoothie. It even has a chapter that discusses things you can add in instead of thinks like milk. I also loved the chapter that tells you what the benefits of each food is. I didn’t know that strawberries were packed with vitamin C.

If you like smoothies, then What Color Is Your Smoothie? is a book you need to get your hands on!
