Begin the day with a really quick to make, energy-injecting, healthy LOW GI breakfast. If there's one meal a day that you'll really feel the benefits of its being low GI, it's breakfast. Great for shaking off weekday sluggishness after late nights on Zaar. Adapted from Jody Vassallo's 'Health for Life: Low GI'. The pears can be prepared in advance. When fresh pears are looking pretty ordinary, I use canned pears. Jody Vassallo is an Australian chef and nutritionist who has been writing cookbooks for the past ten years and is the author of the highly successful marie claire style series recipe books.
- Place the pears in a pan, cover with water and simmer for 20 minutes or until soft.
- Divide the pear halves among four bowls, top with muesli, yoghurt and raspberries and drizzle with maple syrup.
