Free Healthy Recipe - Strawberry and Ricotta Bruschetta
Low GI, Low sugar
A variation on tomato bruschetta, these make a special breakfast dish. Please don't be tempted to use any old bread - this recipe is designed for taste and health. White crusty bread may taste OK but it's nutritionally low in value. In the processing of white flour, the grain is first stripped of its husk removing the fibre and valuable B vitamins; the flour is then ground intensively with bleaching agents added to make it pure white. The result, a fluffy white bread with a high GI, which will fill a gap for a minute but do little else.
8 slices wholegrain sourdough bread, toasted
2 punnets strawberries, washed and sliced
½ cup low fat ricotta
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp bush honey

Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
Spread the ricotta over the sourdough toast.
Note: Wholegrain sourdough has a lower GI and is available from specialist bakers or health food stores. If you are making your own bread in a bread maker, lower it's GI by adding whole grains and/or seeds to the dough.
