Are you looking for healthy recipes? Dr. Rosemarie Cannarella Lorenzetti and her medical students at West Virginia University developed recipes to help patients lead healthier lives. The doctor told their story in the January 2016 edition of Guideposts, and so many readers wrote in asking about Dr. Lorenzetti's recipes that she decided to share some of them with us.
Her mother’s version of this recipe was made from white flour and potatoes, but Dr. Lorenzetti reworked it to lower the dish's glycemic index and reduce its number of carbohdyrates. It's a dish that goes well with pesto sauce, as above, or tradtional Italian red sauce.
This delicious recipe allows Dr. Lorenzetti's to satisfy her chocolate passion when she's in need of a sweet treat, and it has the added bonus of containing a healthy ingredient no dinner guest will ever guess: avocado.
Dr. Lorenzetti adapted from this quick and easy dish from a recipe brought in by one of her students. It's so tasty and filling that her husband has yet to figure out that it's not actually rice.
No one expects a brownie to be healthy, but with this tasty recipe, Dr. Lorenzetti's manages that unlikely feat, proving that black beans are not just for soup and burritos any more.
