Raw Food Recipes
by Judy Davis
You mention a good raw foods cookbook, by name and author, but in researching your site I cannot locate this information. I found Dr. Bieler's book but I want the raw cookbook.
I think your site is the best one out there in explaining why Low Glycemic. Thank you.
P.S. I received a list of low glycemic foods in ascending order from a nutritionist many years ago and am surprised I can't find such a list online. It made a real impact as to which foods to stay away from. Can you print such a list?

Thanks for your kind words! The book you were looking for, Going Raw by Judita Wignall, is now hyperlinked for easy purchase both on my kale chips page and on my resources page. It's a great book and the raw foods Culinary Arts Institute in Fort Bragg, California, where the author teaches, is an amazing place. I tasted the best cheesecake there I have ever eaten and it was made from raw cashews among other interesting ingredients! No cream cheese, no sugar. Wow. That was an eye opener for me. Thank you for reminding me that I had forgotten to make it easy for my readers to purchase this book of raw food recipes.
You are looking for a low glycemic list of foods so look no more. The first printable list on that page is the low glycemic foods list. The next one down is a list of high glycemic foods. There are other lists online but I found them too confusing. This one is very simple and is from the Glycemic Research Institute and reprinted here with permission from them. Remember to use it with a grain of salt. For example, as I said in my newsletter this week, carrots and beets are high glycemic but I think we need to eat them. They are not starchy high glycemic vegetables and do not have a high glycemic load which is the measure of the density of carbs contained in the food. Even juicing them would give you such a nutrition boost. If you are insulin resistant, carrot juice may be a little sweet, but it is a far superior choice than a lot of other high glycemic carbs I can think of!
With these lists stay away from all the high glycemic foods except for the non starchy vegetables. Read labels carefully and don't eat anything with additives that are not low glycemic. If you eat mostly vegetables, fruits and other whole foods and mostly a plant based diet you will be eating a clean diet that will keep you slender.
