Balancing Blood Sugar with the Power Trio: Aloo Sabzi, Yellow Dal, and Roti

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Aloo Sabzi is a vegetable dish made with potatoes, Dal Yellow is a lentil soup, and Roti is an Indian flatbread. Roti and aloo sabzi have high GI which will raise blood sugar due to quick absorption into the bloodstream. Dal has more carbohydrates than protein which is responsible for spiking blood sugar levels.

Optimizing Aloo Sabzi, Yellow Dal and Roti For Optimal Blood Sugar
• Change flour for the roti and opt for almond flour, and coconut flour.
• Limit the amount of aloo sabzi you eat and choose other vegetables with a lower glycemic index.
• Be mindful of your portion sizes and try to fill half of your plate with non-starchy vegetables.
• Replace starch present in aloo sabzi with protein cottage cheese, soya chunks, and soya granules.
• Add 1 tsp of ghee (good fats) in dal to stabilize glucose spikes.

Aloo Sabzi, Yellow Dal and Roti all contain carbs. When we eat carbohydrates, our pancreas releases insulin, a hormone that helps glucose enter our cells and be used for energy. The overall impact of consuming these dishes on blood glucose levels will depend on several factors, including portion size, cooking methods, and individual metabolic factors.
