Middle Eastern Tenderstem® Salad So many of us struggle to get in our recommended five-a-day servings of fruit and vegetables. I think mainly the problem is we don’t always know how to fit it in and how to make them exciting, especially vegetables.

Lemon & Parsley Cannellini Freekeh Recipe

It contains three times as much fibre as brown rice. Why does this make it special? Well a high fibre content means it’s digested slowly and has a low GI number. A low GI means it doesn’t cause the blood sugar to spike the way rice would. It also means it will make you feel fuller so you don’t end up overeating.

When going out to restaurants, I wouldn’t even consider looking at the salad section of the menu. “How can a few leaves and some tomatoes fill you up? Salads are boring” I was so wrong!
