About this title


The first major "insulin-conscious" cookbook with true culinary appeal combines the latest medical data with great dining instincts to offer delectable recipes for Grilled Shrimp with Red Pepper-Caper Sauce; Chickpea, Fennel, and Red Pepper Salad; and Fresh Figs with Virtual Mascarpone, among many others. 50,000 first printing. Tour.


Have you tried the lower-carbohydrate, "insulin-conscious" diets and been bored by the menus and recipes you've found? So was Dr. Deborah Friedson Chud, who decided to remedy the situation by writing her own recipe book. The book is organized into protein dishes and carbohydrate dishes. Protein dishes include a variety of innovative fish and shellfish recipes, such as Crab Bundles with Avocado-Ginger Sauce, Clams in Black Bean Sauce, and Smoked Shrimp "Fajitas" (wrapped in lettuce leaves instead of tortillas). Poultry dishes include Chicken Kebobs with Spicy Lime Sauce, Chinese Brined and Grilled Ducks, and Smoked Turkey Tenderloins with Raspberry-Chipotle Sauce. Meat dishes include Pork Tenderloin with Plum Sauce (made from scratch with oranges and plums), Porcini-Laced Veal Roast, and even five recipes for ostrich. If you're a meat lover, you'll salivate at the artful photographs. The carbohydrate recipes emphasize high-fiber vegetables, legumes, and fruits--no sucrose, potatoes, flour, or grains. A chapter titled "Condiments and Flavor Enhancers" includes recipes for a number of flavorful smoked and roasted vegetables. Each recipe includes a nutritional analysis.
