Slim Down with Vinegar and Citrus!

Pucker Up and Slim Down with Vinegar and Citrus

What do lemon juice, vinegar and pickles have to do with your waist line?  They all help lower blood sugar levels and thus reduce blood sugar spikes that lead to weight gain. 

Thanks to the research by Professor Jennie Brand-Miller at the University of Sydney Australia, it has been noted that adding as little as 4 teaspoons of vinegar with 2 teaspoons of oil to a meal lowered blood glucose by 30%.  According to Prof Brand-Miller “the effect appears to be related to the acidity which slows stomach emptying thereby slowing the digestion of carbohydrates in that meal.”  By the way…lemon juice is just as powerful.

Not a huge vinegar fan?  Not to worry…try my latest creation, marinated with the most delightful blend of soy sauce, vinegar and sesame oil and a cucumber salad with yuzu lemon juice whips up in less than 2 minutes!

 Get the recipe for Pepper Stuffed Yakitori Chicken with Cucumber Yuzu Salad here!

 

At only 200 calories you there will plenty room for some tasty grains such as brown rice or quinoa (as shown in the photo). 

Food for thought: Yakitori means "grilled fowl" in Japanese.  Yuzu (YOO-ZOO) is a Japanese citrus fruit similar to a lemon that is quite sour.
