Last week, I shared with you tips for lowering blood sugar through food. What is great about these tips is that they are easy to incorporate into your daily routine. With practice and patience, you will barely notice a difference in the taste of some of your favorite dishes! If you are still not certain on how to incorporate these tips on your own, keep on reading to find a few recipes that can serve as examples! To refresh our memory, here are the four main tips for lowering blood sugar through food:
Choose whole fruits and vegetables to increase fiber intake (e.g. vegetables like potatoes, carrots, celery with their skins on; fruit with their skins on)
Choose whole grains such as brown rice, rice berry, whole-grain breads, quinoa, oats, amaranth, bulgur, millet, barley
Pair carbohydrate choices with a protein or fat to slow down carbohydrate digestion (e.g. cheese and crackers, carrots and hummus, apples and peanut butter)
Limit consumption of refined grains such as white bread, white rice, pastries, sugar sweeteners
