burrito – Glycemic Index Recipes For Breakfast and Lunch

Tuesday Mar 16, 2010

Implementing low glycemic index recipes for breakfast is by far, the easiest task you will have to do to change your eating habits. That’s because breakfast, of the three main meals, it’s probably the simplest of the three to completely overhaul. High -fiber low glycemic index/load breakfast foods are just as quick, easy and accessible as low- fiber high glycemic index/load options.

The second reason is that few of us get out of bed in the morning with sugar cravings or wanting to dig into a fat laden, salt infested meal. There are some of us that have trouble eating anything until noontime. The main reasons one doesn’t eat breakfast are:

1) I’m not hungry.

2) I don’t have time

3) I keep forgetting to eat.

If you’re serious about losing weight (more specifically) fat, then consider these facts:

*Researchers at Brown Medical School and the University of Colorado have found that of people who take of over 70 pounds and keep it off for an average of 6 year, nearly 80% of them eat breakfast.

*People who skip breakfast are four times as likely to be overweight, compared to people who eat breakfast.

*A New Zealand study of 3,275 children reported that children who eat breakfast are more likely to eat junk food during the late morning hours increasing their odds of being overweight. Conclusive studies done in the U.S. and Italy have resulted in that people of every age race, and sex who eat breakfast tend to weigh less than their peers who do not.

*Eating breakfast is important because it sets blood sugar level for the entire day. So with that information let’s make some suggestion for a healthy breakfast.

If you normally eat breakfast, switch to this high fiber low GI/L alternative:

*White Toast or English muffin Whole grain toast or muffin

*French toast made with white bread and French toast made with whole wheat bread and slathered with syrup fruit.

*Pancakes made with refined flour Pancakes made with whole grain flour and berries or sliced fruit.

*Ham and cheese omelet Vegetable-packed omelet, frittata or strata

*Orange Juice

*Refined cold cereal high fiber low glycemic index/load cereal

Lunch is almost as easy as breakfast, hence, you have to keep your cravings in check by making sure your fiber and protein intake is adequate for the morning agenda. Keep this in mind for lunch: Pack the Fiber, whether at home or if you eat out.

Sandwiches, salads and leftovers make excellent lunch entries for you to enjoy. Whatever you do don’t skip meals. Skipping meals reduces the effect of natural killer cells and their ability to support your immune system.

If you normally eat lunch switch to this high fiber low GI/L alternative:

*Beef burrito Beef and bean burrito

*Applesauce on the side Apple on the side

*Chips on the side Whole grain crackers

*Sandwich made with white bread Sandwich made with whole grain bread

*Pizza slice with fries Pizza slice topped with veggies and a side

*Salad of minestrone soup

*Tuna salad sandwich tuna salad made with shredded carrots, diced apples, and raisins and served over a bed of greens or between two slices or whole grain bread.

*Egg salad sandwich Eggs and Black-Bean salad Wrap or egg salad made with celery, cucumber, bell pepper, and and other veggies served over a bed of greens or between two slices or whole grain bread.

*Burger Portobello Burger with roasted peppers, Swiss caramelized onions.

*Soy burgers on a whole grain bun, topped with lots of veggies and guacamole of hummus as a spread instead of ketchup

*Plain baked potato Baked potato stuffed with broccoli, beans and other veggies.

What’s The Difference Between Cold Air Intakes And Regular Air Intakes?

My mind is cluttered enough with all kinds of information that I have to keep straight. How much extra should I tip the cabby whose backseat I sprayed vomit all over? How many days can I hold out paying my rent without getting evicted? What year is it? I was hoping that shopping for performance accessories for my Acura RSX wouldn’t require that much brain power, but I was wrong…dead wrong. All I wanted to do was improve my throttle response, enhance my off-the-line spring, and maybe even get a little extra fuel efficiency. A buddy of mine recommended a cold air intake, but then another friend said I should pick up just a regular air intake. I was in a tailspin of confusion. What exactly is the difference between cold air intakes and air intakes? Before I hopped online and did some research, I was completely dumbfounded. But that’s not the whole story.

While wrestling with this daunting question, I knew some serious intellectual concentration would be needed. Since I’m not big on focusing, I realized that I would need some help. So I cruised over to my local watering hole to get bit of liquid smarts in the form of boiler makers, and lots of ‘em. The first tumbler was a bit harsh, burning my larynx as it rolled down into my waiting belly. After that, though, each round got easier and easier to chug, and I could barely even taste the fifth glass. As I slammed that last empty mug down onto the bar, I was filled with an overwhelming sense of clarity. The mental pump had been thoroughly primed, and I was ready to tackle my research project.

Standing up from my barstool, I knew nothing could distract me from uncovering the answer to my vexing accessory question. Not even the gorgeous girl shooting pool in the back corner could make me swerve off my course, nor her hulking boyfriend who accosted me for slapping her rump as I walked past, nor his entourage of goons who dragged me into the back alley and beat the religion out of me, nor the hobo who rooted through my pockets and made off with my wallet while I was passed out, nor the sausage-fingered bus driver who wouldn’t let me on because of all the blood, nor the insensitive cashier at the burrito shop who wouldn’t sell me a quesadilla on credit, nor my lousy neighbors who thre
atened to call the cops because I decided to wash the clotted gore off my body in the apartment complex’s over-chlorinated pool. No. I had a date with knowledge, and I wasn’t going to stand her up.

Though my left eye was swollen shut, I was still perfectly capable of googling an answer, and what I learned shocked me. The difference is that a cold air intake relocates the filter outside of the engine compartment to suck in colder, fresher, more energetic oxygen. A standard air intake, on the other hand, just replaces or modifies the stock intake, which still delivers serious performance gains. Mystery solved. And I only lost a quart or so of my precious bodily fluids in the process.

You may want to do your own research but, I can tell you I got my answers about cold air intakes and air intakes online while recovering from my off-line research activities. I guess I should have done that first. – David S. Brooks
