For those on Low GI/PCOS diet - Low GI Spuds!!

Tue Dec 28, 2010 2:34 pm

OK, I am just a little bit excited about this...

I'm on a Low GI Diet for my PCOS and for years now I have had to avoid potatoes. I love them so it's been really hard until now!!!!! Coles have just introduced the Low GI Potato, called Carisma. The only Low GI certified Potato. I can finally eat spuds again! :lol:

And yes, they have their own Website!!

http://www.carismapotatoes.com.au/

And their own video (they were on ACA) http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8182169 :lol: :lol:

It was only $5.98 for a 2 kilo bag, so quite normal actually. I expected more.
