VeggieGlobal's Nutrition Guide
A Glycaemic Index for Veggies

(and Vegans ... just leave out the obvious dairy and honey examples.

This is a short GI list to help you plan meals and to get you through the day without your all-important blood sugar levels dropping.
For a full description of what the Glycaemic Index is and how it works click here
Remember, the lower the GI number the longer food takes to release its sugars into the blood, and therefore allows you get through your day in a cool, calm way!

VeggieBite ...
Recent research has found that vegetarians live up to 6 years longer than their meat-eating counterparts.
