My Sunday Photo Week 19 – low GI goodness

Chicken brown rice aubergine low gi yumminess

I’ve decided that enough is enough. I need to lose some weight and get in shape. I have the number of a personal trainer, access to a free gym at work and an unhealthy relationship with food to break. Having flirted with the idea of a low GI diet I’ve decided to start my journey to getting and staying fit. My husband is going to do it with me so hopefully we’ll keep each other motivated.

On to my first instalment of great meals. Using a recipe from prima’s 7 day eating plan and adapting it by Googling ideas for an aubergine side dish, here’s what I came up with:

– Stir-fried chicken, spinach, mushroom on a bed of brown rice (swapped out the buckwheat recommended in the recipe as I didn’t know what it was).

– Grilled aubergine with tomato and garlic sauce, topped with fresh parmesan and mozzarella

It was absolutely yummy so if this is what low GI food is like then I’m going to love this adventure.

Anyone on a similar journey care to share their favourite recipes? Buzz me and I’ll link to it on my post.
