Our expert says:
I am glad that you are using a low-GI diet which has many health benefits. Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI, to read about tips on how to lower the GI of a food or a meal. Your idea of adding beans to Smash is good, but don't puree them because this increases their GI. Just eat the cooked, whole beans with the Smash or combine the Smash with lean meat or fish plus a salad with a vinegar and oil dressing and you will lower the GI of the combination.
