Low GI

Although I am interested in recipes with low fat, it is also very important that I eat low GI foods to ensure that my bloodsugar levels don't fluctuate. The GI on this is less than 30 - which is great! and you also know what ingredients are going into this- where I find at the shops some of the hummus is really not as low fat as you would like to believe. I put one serving on my sandwich instead of butter, and it lowers the overall GI of the sandwich. Serving this up with crudites is also great. This can be stored in the fridge for up to one week - I usually finish it before then. I find Tahini at my local supermarket- in the health foods section.

Spaghetti squash is a healthier alternative to pasta. And if you are cutting carbs, it helps with that as well.
