I've got a recipe for chilli coriander lamb and barley salad and one for thai basil chicken stir-fry.
Any good?

Where in the world are you?
I got a cook book from a Twitter competition from Cook_AWW. It's the Austrailian Woman's Weekly but the foodie bits' based in the UK (no idea why but whatever). Quite good. Few carbs in places (pizza, rice etc) but there's some good stuff there. If you're in the UK and on Twitter you could always DM them and ask if they've got any spare.

Use the glycemic index to help plan your meals. Pick foods with a low glycemic index and low glycemic load. That will help keep the carbs down.

Here are some links to information about the Glycemic Index (GI) and glycemic loads (GL). The first is a site with a lot of information. Of particular note are the FAQ's for some quick, easy to understand information and a simple formula for calculating GL, and the GI food database where you can look up foods to see what their GI is. The second link is a list of some common foods with their GI and GL.

Once you figure out which foods you like that are low on the GI, it's a lot easier to find recipes to meet your needs. If you find any good ones or create any good ones, let us know! And if you have questions let us know those too. My experience so far is that people here are usually pretty good about helping out. Oh, and welcome to DC!

My 13 yr old grandson has type I. One thing I know he likes is a burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun.

Try this site: Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes - Home

I have been low-carbing (pre-diabetes) since December, and have lost almost 40 pounds without really trying. More importantly, my monitor readings are good.
