Low GI Meals

We have started on a low GI regime. The main differences are no refined sugar including stopping eating prepared foods containing sugar, no potatoes, no regular bread or rice. Regular meals are pretty much the same. The objective is to get back to our weight when we were thirty.

When you are faced with the production of half a dozen tomato plants it is not difficult to understand why we have so many ways of preserving food and it is no wonder that grain and animals became popular as foods. You keep your animals alive to preserve your food source and with grain it comes with its own packaging.

Tomatoes accompanied by garden greens and flat rice noodles

The only preserving we have done with our tomatoes is to recycle vegemite jars and fill them with a simple tomato sauce. Most of the rest of the crop have been eaten as fruit or in various salads and sauces.
