Green Light Vegetables

posted by sbrown

Well, here is good news!  This is a category of food that is free — or nearly so, especially when you eat them raw.  The fiber makes them hard to digest, so it’s difficult to eat enough to give you a big insulin spike.  They also fill you up and provide lots of nutrients.   Spend some time checking out the produce section of your grocery store and buy some different varieties of vegetables.  Here are some suggestions of old standbys and some that might not appear regularly on your table.

 

alfalfa sprouts

artichoke

asparagus

bean sprouts

broccoli

brussels sprouts

cabbage

carrots (raw — they move to yellow-for-caution when cooked.)

cauliflower

celery

cucumber

eggplant

green beans

kale

lettuce

mushrooms

okra

onions

peppers — all varieties

peas (fresh or frozen)

radishes

spinach

snow peas

sugar snap peas

summer squash (yellow crookneck and patty-pan)

sweet potato (surprise!)

tomatoes

cherry/grape tomatoes

zucchini

Beans fall in this category, too.  Here are some to choose from.

black-eyed peas

baked beans

kidney beans

lentils

chick peas

pinto beans

 

If it isn’t on the list, it is still probably okay since the yellow and red light list is pretty short.  However, feel free to ask and I’ll check it out for you.

Eating to live and living for Christ,
Susan

Recipe Day -- Good-For-You Chocolate Cake
I looked at the recipe in disbelief.  NINE eggs? Surely that was a misprint.  Only 3/4 cup flour in a cake?  Not likely.  As I studied about coconut flour, though, I saw that, yes, it does take that many eggs to make a successful cake with this healthy type of flour, and it takes a much smaller

Climbing Into Jesus' Wheelbarrow
Once there was a famous tight-rope walker.  He stood before a huge crowd by Niagara Falls, preparing to do his most daring feat. “How many of you believe that I can walk across Niagara Falls on this tightrope?” he asked the people gathered there. “We believe you can do it!” they shout

How Do You Know When to Stop Eating?
“We asked 150 Parisians how they knew they were through with dinner,” food psychologist Brian Wansink, PhD, said.  “They said, ‘When we’re full.’  When we asked 150 Chicagoans that they said, ‘When the plate is empty.’” * No wonder 2/3 of American adults are overweight and hal

Making Plans to Succeed
H.A.L.T. -- Don’t get too hungry, too angry, too lonely, or too tired.  But how do you do that?  How do you avoid getting in a dangerously tempting position? It takes planning.  Start planning before you even head to the grocery store.  Look over the Green-for-Go low glycemic lists. Click h

No More "If Onlys"
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.- Carl Bard If only -- If only.  How the “if onlies” plague us! “If I had only kept up that healthy eating and exercise plan I started five years ago I would look terrific now.”
