The combination of dal yellow, roti, and sabzi is packed with protein and complex carbohydrates. It may sound nutritious but may result in hyperglycemia due to overloaded carbohydrates. This is because yellow dal has more composition of carbs than protein leading to blood sugar spikes.

Dal yellow, roti, sabji without the glucose spikes
• Replace regular roti with almond flour roti or other low-carb flour. It reduces the carb overload associated with the meal.
• Check portions of dal, roti, and sabji to keep carb intake in check.
• Follow the food flow (fibre + protein + complex carbohydrates + healthy fats). This flow is ideal for optimal digestion and absorption of nutrients.
• Consider pairing the dal yellow and roti with boiled vegetables. It acts as an ideal source of fibre and complex carbohydrates.

Intake of a high-carb meal can significantly lead to weight gain, poor metabolic health, and blood sugar spikes. Reducing the portion of carbohydrates and replacing them with complex carbs improves digestion. So, ensure that you eat your power-packed meal in appropriate proportions to stabilise glucose levels.
