How to Plan Meals For a Low GI Diet

One quick way to design lower glycemic index meals is the "Dinner Plate" method. Instead of weighing and measuring specific portion-sizes, divide up and fill your dinner plate as follows:

  • Protein should occupy 1/4 of the plate
  • Carbs (eg. pasta, potatoes, noodles, rice) should occupy 1/4 of the plate
  • Vegetables should occupy 1/2 of the plate

Protein, Carbs and Pasta Food Choices

To make up your plate, choose one protein option, one carb option and (for variety) a mixture of vegetables from the following list of lower GI foods.

Protein

- 1 Chicken breast
- Any White Fish Fillet
- Salmon Fillet
- Broiled Shrimps
- Lean Steak
- 2 Eggs
- Lentils or Beans

Carbohydrates

- Basmati rice, or long-grain brown rice
- Wholewheat Spaghetti, or any wholewheat pasta
- Noodles or Couscous
- 3 Medium Boiled New Potatoes

Vegetables

Choose any combination of these vegetables: Artichokes, avocado, asparagus, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, corn, cucumber, eggplant, green beans, green peas, leeks, lettuce, mushrooms, onions, olives, peppers, spinach, squash, tomato, yam, zucchini.

Dessert

For dessert, choose one of the following:

  • Frozen berries topped with unsweetened yogurt
  • Baked Apple
  • Strawberries and cream (easy on the cream)
  • Frozen grapes (or frozen banana)
