Two Weeks Low GI Meal PlanHealthy eating the low-GI way is easy and delicious.
To show you just how easy it is, here are two weeks of
Grilled goat's cheese saladCrisp toasted baguette is spread with a rich red onion marmalade flavoured with balsamic vinegar and rosemary, then topped with creamy goat's cheese and finished under the grill. Served with a beetroot, capsicum and lamb's lettuce (mache) salad, this makes an impressive starter.
Cajun chicken fillet burgersThese chicken burgers are much healthier than any version bought from a fast-food outlet. They combine lightly spiced chicken fillet with crunchy coleslaw that uses only a small amount of mayonnaise for the dressing.
Gourmet steak sandwichNothing says summer more than a steak perfectly cooked on the barbecue, then sandwiched between slices of sourdough bread with sweet caramelised onions. Add some peppery leaves of rocket and some slices of juicy tomatoes and you have a delectable meal.
Steak sandwichThis bumper sandwich is made with individual loaves packed with quick-fried, thinly sliced steak and salad for a healthy and filling meal. If you just need a fast supper for one, scale the recipe down and use one individual loaf and 85 g steak.
Smoked mackerel and capsicum croustadesSlices of bread, brushed with butter and then baked in muffin tins, make perfect little "cups" for a piquant red capsicum and mackerel filling. Served with a rocket salad, they make an appealing starter. The bread cases and filling can be made ahead, then assembled just before serving.
Indian chicken and broccoli wrapThese mouthwatering Indian-style snacks are quick to make. They use wholemeal pita wraps instead of the traditional Indian chapattis. A yogurtbased raita, containing cucumber and tomato, is the perfect accompaniment.
Tuna Provencale on a baguetteFlavoursome, savoury and full of heart-smart nutrients, this sandwich is sure to become a favourite. The special today: a variation of the classic "pan bagnat", a baguette bursting with tuna, olives and garden-fresh veggies.
