Egg omelettes and roti can have an impact on glucose metabolism. Eggs are a good source of protein and healthy fats. However, eggs contain a negligible amount of carbohydrates, which does not have a significant impact on blood sugar levels. Whereas roti is a high glycemic index(GI) food that leads to a rapid increase in blood glucose and insulin responses following food ingestion.

Healthy Eating Tips for Omelettes and Roti to Help Manage Your Blood Sugar
• Use low-GI flour like almond flour instead of wheat or maida for slow glucose absorption.
• Add vegetables to your egg omelette to increase nutrient density and fibre content.
• Opt for low-GI toppings, such as avocado or cheese, instead of high glycemic index toppings like ketchup or jam.
• Eat the salad first, then protein (eggs), and then 30g roti which is low carb.
• Monitor portion sizes and avoid overeating to maintain stable blood glucose levels.

Studies have suggested that consuming eggs may improve glucose metabolism by increasing insulin sensitivity, reducing inflammation, and improving blood lipid profiles. However, the impact of egg omelettes and roti on glucose metabolism may vary based on the preparation method, portion size, and overall dietary habits.
