    health guide

    Oranges are a low GI food. They are ideal for people with diabetes and for anyone needing an energy boost. They are high in vitamin C, which may reduce the risk of strokes and some cancers.

    cook's tip

    Purchase fresh beetroot with crisp, bright green leafy tops. Scatter raw leaves on salads or cook them as for spinach. They are rich in beta carotene.
