Our expert says:
Thank you so much for your kind words, it makes my day too when I get some positive feedback from my readers. Couscous as eaten in the Middle East consists of unprocessed, crushed wheat cooked up with vegetables, a dish which is high in dietary fibre, but the couscous we buy in SA is made of sifted wheat flour and is probably equivalent to white rice. There is no harm in eating it occasionally for variety, but the brown rice, samp, those baked jacket potatoes and crushed wheat are also good sources of fibre and contain very little fat.
Good luck with your programme.
