At Thornybush Monwana Lodge we love to spoil all our guests while they are on safari with us, regardless of their dietary needs.
Here’s one of our favourite recipes that gets our diabetic guests in a rapture. In fact, all our guests love these tasty bites.
Alternatively, you can leave them in the warmer drawer overnight.
Enjoy with freshly ground coffee, preferably before an early morning game drive at Monwana Game Lodge.
Once you’ve tasted these traditional nibbles with a twist, you won’t believe how healthy they really are. Each rusk has a glycaemic load of just 7, which makes it an intermediate food on the glycaemic index.
Despite this low risk, they’re still packed with good energy (358kj per serving) to carry you through to breakfast. More good news is that the cholesterol levels are just 5.5g per rusk and you’ll get 1.5g of fibre too.
Our rusks are just one of the traditional dishes served up at Monwana Lodge.
While it certainly can be a bit of a drag having to watch what you eat all the time, that’s no reason to skimp on life’s little pleasures.
At Thornybush we are happy to accommodate all the meal preferences of our guests, just make sure that you tell one of the staff on arrival if you have a specific dietary requirements.
