Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that is often overlooked in the world of superfoods. Its high fibre and low glycemic index make it an ideal choice for those looking to manage their blood sugar levels. Cabbage also contains sulforaphane, which has been found to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation in the body.

Tips to Optimise your Cabbage Intake
• Add 100g of cooked protein with the cabbage, such as paneer, soya, or chicken.
• Include 1 cup of Greek yoghurt with the meal to provide healthy fats that help stabilise the spike.
• Try to eat cooked cabbage instead of raw to help you aid in digestion, leading to better glucose management.
• Add a source of complex carbohydrates to avoid a drop in glucose levels

The fibre content in cabbage also promotes feelings of fullness, aiding in weight loss, a vital aspect of glucose management. Optimising your meals with additional protein and healthy fats can help you stabilise your blood sugar levels and prevent a sudden glucose surge in the bloodstream.
