Cous cous

Just bought some. Would i be right in thinking that it can be used as rice and pasta would?

I.e as a carb serving

    Yes, it's quite high in carbs so would be a carb source.

    It's medium to high on the GI if i remember correctly, yet it is quite low on the GL, so possibly PPWO would be a good inclusion.

    You can get wholemeal couscous...

    Try it with added mix spices & raisins.

    I use it all the time, very easy to use and versatile. You can get pots of cous cous seasoning in Tesco, Lemon, Med and Chilli and Mint. I then mix in some chopped and seasoned chicken breast pieces, and then salad (olives, onion, spinache and peppper) - great cold and pretty good heated thru also

    Wholemeal taste the same(darker in colour of course)... You can buy it in health shops.

    My mother makes it from scratch(with semolina & flour): it takes time to make but taste so much nicer!
