I did a series of posts a while back now which revolved around eating a high fibre diet so decided to do a another 7 day series of posts but this time its based on the G.I diet, you don’t have to stick to it rigidly just add or take away things that you may or may not like.
So here is day ones menu
Porridge oats (oatmeal )
With some fruit of your choice, mixed with water and skimmed milk this is purely a personal choice, I make mine with water and sometimes use milk but not always. I add sweetener to my porridge it just gives it that small lift . Some fat free yogurt and add some sweetener for flavour, 5 tablespoons of almonds and some more fresh fruit
Mid Morning Snack
Some iceburg lettuce or round lettuce leaves, a carrot sliced or grated 1/2 of a either a red, green, yellow pepper, a tomato cut into 4 quarters, a quarter of a cucumber sliced,a sliced red onion, put all this in a bowl and toss to mix it.
And add some Vinaigrette here is a basic recipe for that if you don’t have one or know how to make it. You will need two tablespoons of vinegar, one tablespoon of olive oil, half a table spoon of mustard, a small amount of salt, a small amount of black pepper,some dried herbs place all in a bowl and mix to combine. Then you will have your salad dressing you could always use low fat salad cream or mayonaise.
Mid Afternoon Snack
Salmon steak served with garden peas make sure you have more peas to keep the balance right and serve with a sweet potato mashed, you can cook these in the microwave or peel and boil them.
