Smart tips

  • Basmati rice has a medium GI, which means it is absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream than other types of white rice such as jasmine. This helps keep you fuller for longer and is also great for controlling blood glucose levels for diabetics.

  • Always trim the fat off your chicken before you cook it.

  • Leftover stir fry is great for lunch.
