Beetroot And Sweet Potato Salad

4.50 from 6 votes

Nutritional requirements vary from person to person . For someone like me who suffers from fluctuating sugar levels, a diet with a healthy inclusion of low and high GI foods is very important. Hence I prefer low GI foods like roasted veggies, beets and sweet potatoes for my post workout meal. Plus a drizzle of honey that supplements any immediate energy needs. Honey which has a relatively higher GI than veggies but still is lower than that of sugar is an excellent choice as a sweetener and source of immediate energy.
