For anyone on a blood sugar-balancing diet, chicken soup should be on the top of your list. It is rich in proteins and low in carbs, making it a perfect combination. Clear chicken soup has a low glycemic index and it prevents blood sugar spikes. However, chicken soup prepared with corn flour or other thickening agents may have a low glycemic score due to the presence of carbohydrates. Thus, taking a few steps is necessary to ensure your chicken remains healthy.

Tips to Make Chicken Soup Healthier
• Consider having clear chicken soup that is broth-based.

• Try not to thicken your chicken soup with corn flour or any other thickening agents.
• To give the transparent soup some thickness, consider adding egg white and larger pieces of chicken. This will also help you reach your daily protein requirement.
• Consider adding vegetables to the chicken soup to make it high in fibre, vitamins and minerals.

The presence of micronutrients zinc and magnesium in chicken strengthen your immune system and keep infections at bay. Chicken is a good source of protein, which helps in stabilizing blood sugar levels and keeps you feeling full for longer.
