An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but a high quantity intake of apples doesn’t justify the same. Apples contain carbohydrates and fibre. Consuming carbohydrates in abundance can cause a spike in blood sugar levels. Practising portion control and consuming apples in moderation is essential to reduce the risk of a sugar spike. You can also pair it with peanut butter that carries magnesium, which Improves insulin sensitivity and has a low glycemic index.

Tips to optimise apple intake with peanut butter
• Limit the intake to half an apple with one teaspoon of peanut butter.
• Try adding them to your protein shake.
• You can sprinkle some seeds on the portion-controlled apple and peanut butter combination.

Peanut butter is a low glycemic index food that is also rich in magnesium. It can handle the carbohydrate in apples by increasing insulin sensitivity. It will result in a lower and slower spike in blood sugar levels. These are beneficial for people trying to maintain steady blood sugar levels.
