Free foods (you can eat these ‘til the cows come home)

Vegies: capsicum, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, green beans, lettuce, mushrooms, peas, pumpkin, tomatoes, zucchini… just lay off the spuds and sweet potato, which have a higher GI.

Flavourings: stir-fry carrots in ginger, sprinkle lemon pepper on zucchini chips… flavourings like chilli sauce, curry powder, herbs and spices, lemon juice and mustard are an open bar.

Drinks: as well as endless H20, fill your tank with tea, cocoa, diet cordial and unflavoured mineral water.

WH&F FAVOURITE FREEBIES: Try oven-roasted zucchini chips – just slice thinly, sprinkle with lemon pepper and bake. For an afternoon flavour hit with digestive perks, we stole the ginger tea recipe from Koh Samui’s Kamalaya health and wellness sanctuary. Simply boil fresh ginger, add stevia leaf to sweeten and serve in a tea ceremony-style earthenware cup to create a sense of occasion.
