Spaghetti Bolognese is a popular Italian dish that has made its way into the hearts and plates of people all over the world. However, it is not a balanced meal as it mainly consists of simple carbohydrates. The refined or durum flour used to make spaghetti has a high glycemic index which can cause glucose levels to spike.

Balancing your Plate of Spaghetti Bolognese
• To make Spaghetti Bolognese healthier and more balanced, you can use shirataki noodles for a higher fibre-to-carbohydrate ratio. You can also try spaghetti made out of chickpea flour which has a relatively higher protein and low carbohydrate content.
• Portion control is another way to try and make room for more healthy options on the plate like salads or vegetables which are rich in fibre, and lean protein like chicken or fish or tofu.
• You can also try replacing your spaghetti with zucchini noodles which are rich in fibre, and very low in carbohydrates and calories.

Maida or durum wheat gets digested and converted to glucose quickly in the body which spikes your glucose levels. And thus, and makes you hungry within a short while after eating. This also leads to overeating and consequently obesity. Optimising your Spaghetti Bolognese with alternate flours and adding protein and fibre will aid in slow digestion and maintain your glucose levels.
