SAM’S TIPS:

Satay skewers is generally a family favourite. This recipe you can swap the chicken thigh for chicken breast. Chicken breast is much lower in fat and a healthier alternative. Another swap that could be made is standard crunchy peanut butter for a natural peanut butter. Natural nut butters should only contain nuts, salt and maybe some olive oil. This is a healthier alternative than a standard crunchy peanut butter which is generally high in added sugar. 

Many people ask questions about what type of rice they should have if they don’t like brown rice. Basmati rice is a great alternative as it has a low glycaemic index compared to white rice which means it won’t cause a rapid rise in blood sugar levels.
