The GI Diet Guide


Grilled Dill Salmon with Olive Sauce

Not only is salmon a low GI food but it is also a rich source of omega-3, one of the good fats high in anti-oxidants. If you are concerned about the mercury deposits in salmon then consider only eating wild salmon, although this is much more expensive.
