Ethiopian food focuses on high-quality carbs that also seem to be mostly low on the glycemic index like teff flour, which is naturally gluten-free, root vegetables and pulses (beans and lentils). That means that the carbs you do have are high in fibre, full of nutrients, keep you full sooner and longer and have less of an effect on your blood sugar. The cuisine focuses on little bites of a large variety of flavours and colours so it makes the meal fun and interesting! Meals are offered “family style” in a social eating setting. Eating this way and sharing meals can have more health benefits than eating alone.
