    Hi, just starting out on my low GI diet. Can anyone tell me if the following are ok?

    I am trying to avoid dairy for medical reasons so searching for alternatives!

    Coconut Milk (I'm not a fan of soya milk and I believe rice milk is not GI friendly)
    Alpro Soya Dessert
    Spelt & Honey Bread (sugar & wheat free)
    Pasta made with spelt flour and eggs

    Think that's it for now....

    Thank you

    I know that creamed coconut is low GL but I imagine as for any milk, limit the amount used over the course of the day.
    Spelt flour is a medium GL food.
    I'm not sure about the alpro soya dessert but I imagine it has a sugar content and the amount used should be limited. I tend to use fruit and yoghurt for desserts usually.
    Google SusanJane Murray for some great recipes for food intolerances.

    It is delicious. I think it might be limited to the area I live in (Cavan) as it is made by Cully's Bakery. Lovely and moist with a hint of sweetness.
