Low GI = 55 or less
Medium GI = 56 to 69
High GI = 70 above

D - Daffodils are blooming in Skagit County here in Washington State

Danish Pastry = 59
Danish, Apple & Peach, light 50g = 50
Dark Chocolate Crunch flavor, nutrition bar 25g = 49
Double chocolate muffin 60g = 46

Ok, here is what I had this morning. I just used whatever I found in the fridge and pantry. I'm not that creative enough to name my recipe but it does taste good.
Bean Sprout - bought a bag few days ago and I'm trying to get rid of them, but I still have some left.
Green Onions
Olive Oil
Linguica Hickory smoked Portuguese style sausage -  I decided to add this in the last minute. It has been in the fridge for quite sometime, so I thought it's time to get rid of it too.
Vietnam rice paper - I used it just for fun. Had this in the pantry for months.

  1. Lightly fry the eggplant in olive oil for a minute then add the the sausage, bean sprout, and spinach then cook it for few minutes. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs and add the chopped green onions. Fry in a separate pan.
  3. Place the fried eggs and the rest of the food on the wrapper and roll.

I made it too big that it was hard to roll. I guess I need more practice.
