Our expert says:
We cannot just judge foods on their GI. Oats are very healthy because they contain a lot of soluble fibre that helps to lower blood fat levels. Carrots on the other hand contain plenty of beta-carotene a powerful antioxidant. So please don't cut out all high-GI foods like the oats and carrots. You can combine the oats with fat-free milk or yoghurt to lower the GI of the meal and serve the carrots with a meal that has a low GI (e.g. Pasta made from Durum wheat with lean mince and fresh carrot salad).
