Part 1 of Chapter 7
Low Carb Breakfast Recipes
The recipes that follow are wonderful examples of how you can eat well with no fast-acting and very little total carbohydrate. While developing a meal plan is a science, it is also an art. The science offers you the metabolic and nutritional underpinnings of what should and should not be in your meal plan. The art portion is the negotiation that has to take place between you and your physician, and between your nutritional needs and your lifestyle, especially your tastes and the time you have to spend in cooking.
You can do well with these recipes, but you can also do well by adjusting these recipes to your own tastes. The recipes were developed by Marcia Miele, the mother of a type 1 diabetic, as noted before. Marcia comes from a cooking family. She is an award-winning chef with a fine figure who owns and runs, with her sister Gloria and mother, Daisy, the Peter Herdic House, an elegant gourmet restaurant in a beautiful restored Victorian mansion, situated on Williamsport, Pennsylvania’s historic Millionaire’s Row.
When it comes to food, she knows her stuff. You’ll find the low-carb recipes here invitingly delicious and inventive. Her son is fortunate — we should all be so lucky as to have someone around the house who can whip up dazzling feasts that happen to be good for you.
