If low-glycemic cooking is what your bodies needs to thrive, you don’t have to give up on taste or variety. Chef Ann Butler, owner of Edible Education, teaches audience members to prepare these delicious dishes:
• Cannellini Beans and Rosemary Brushetta
• Field Greens with Grilled Salmon
• Fresh Strawberry and Cream
Richmond-Times Dispatch reporter Mary Jo Sawyer was in the audience, and was so impressed that she featured Butler in the December 2, 2014 article, “Practical Nutrition.”:http://www.richmond.com/food-drink/mary-jo-sawyer/article_6929a1d6-6f7c-5214-85e4-c91d592d1335.html
Sawyer wrote: Last month, I found myself in Edible Education’s Source Kitchen along with other registered dietitians for our monthly Greater Richmond Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics meeting. We brushed up on our knife techniques as we chopped veggies for the chefs to demonstrate recipes.
My favorite was the Cannellini Bean and Rosemary Bruschetta. This vegetarian recipe would be an easy appetizer for an upcoming holiday event. The fresh, chopped rosemary added a flavorful touch. I had fun in the class, and feel a bit more confident in my knife skills. As children become more familiar with foods and have positive experiences, they become confident and more open to new ones. It can take 10 to 15 exposures to a food before a child might be willing to try it
