Go low GI
Low glycaemic index (GI) foods digest more slowly, helping you avoid post-meal blood glucose spikes. Here are some easy switches:
Swap white and wholemeal bread for dense, grainy bread.
Choose whole grains like barley and quinoa in place of rice.
Try mashed cannellini beans rather than potato.
Replace puffed and flaked breakfast cereal with traditional or steel-cut rolled oats.
