Mixing Carbs and Proteins in Your Snacks for Blood Sugar Harmony
Before we start snacking, let's talk about the blood sugar tango. When we eat, our bodies release glucose into the bloodstream. Avoid sudden spikes and crashes by managing this release. Proteins and carbs are powerful.
Understanding the Blood Sugar Tango
The blood sugar tango is paced by carbs like the dance floor. Choose complex carbs like whole grains, fruits, and veggies. Slow glucose release prevents sharp spikes that can make you sluggish.
Protein partners are like the steady hand in the dance Slowing glucose absorption with protein sustains energy release Protein-rich foods include nuts, seeds, yoghurt, and lean meats.
