Low G.I foods or Foods with a low glycaemic index are generally the best foods for most of us because they help to reduce the risk of disease? Mainly because they are very satisfying and help to control our blood sugar levels, so that we don’t have drastic highs and lows after meals. These foods help diabetics to control their blood sugar levels and can potentially help the rest of us to avoid heart disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes.
They are also great for avoiding the ‘diva’ or ‘incredible hulk’ moments that many of us experience when our blood sugar drops!
Examples of low G.I foods are : porridge, pasta, legumes, mueslis, fruit whole grain breads, basmati rice, couscous .
