A burrito bowl is a delicious treat, but did you know that the ingredients and portion size can affect your glucose metabolism? Foods high in carbs like rice and chips, as well as dressings and sauces, can lead to a spike in glucose levels. But don’t worry; adding ingredients rich in protein and fibre, like chicken and veggies, can help balance your glucose levels.

Optimise your intake of burrito bowls
• You may customise the bowl whenever possible. You can ask for a lesser quantity of rice and more vegetables. You may also choose protein-rich ingredients like chicken, beef or tofu.
• Consider loading up on fibre-rich ingredients like vegetables and beans.
• Avoid ingredients rich in carbohydrates, like rice, tortilla chips, and dressings/sauces.
• Limiting portion sizes can avoid overconsumption of carbohydrates.
• Adding healthy fats like avocado or nuts can slow down glucose absorption.

The impact of burrito bowl on glucose metabolism is complex and multifactorial. The composition of the ingredients, portion size, and individual metabolic factors all play a role in determining the effect on glucose levels. It is crucial to consider these factors and work with a healthcare professional to develop personalised dietary strategies for individuals with diabetes or other metabolic conditions.
