Low Glycemic Index (GI) meals now have become easier to prepare. You only have to remember to reduce the sweetening contents and high GI foods while including more low GI foods in your recipes. With this, you can be sure that you are preparing nutritious foods.
We eat a lot – breakfast, lunch, dinner and sometimes we also have snacks. Good thing, there are numerous GI recipes you can prepare for such occasions. Just follow the steps in making them and you can enjoy eating healthy.
For breakfast, a GI recipe you can make is pancakes mixed with oatmeal. Just put together six eggs, a half cup of oatmeal, and sugar-free raspberry fruit spread. Cook both sides of the pancake for about 5 minutes each and serve. That’s so easy and palatable, right?
How about salad for lunch? This recipe is so healthy because raw vegetables have very low GI. Spin together fresh lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes and add some vinaigrette for a tasty salad meal.
The problem with dinner meals is that they usually include a lot of carbohydrates. You can work around that by substituting and creative imagination. Or you can try the following GI index recipe.
