Salads are an excellent source of fibre, vitamins, and minerals. With low carbs, salad helps in regulating glucose metabolism. The fibre in salads can slow down glucose absorption into the bloodstream and reduce the quantity of insulin in the blood. It prevents the spike in blood glucose levels.

Stabilising your blood glucose level while eating salad
• Add low-glycemic index vegetables like leafy greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers.
• Consider adding a source of protein, such as grilled chicken, tofu, or hard-boiled eggs.
• Include healthy fats in your salad, such as avocado, nuts, or seeds.
• Use a vinegar-based dressing instead of high-sugar dressings.
• Consider adding some complex carbs like millet/quinoa.

Salads are high in fibre and protein from leafy vegetables, which can slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream. They prevent blood glucose levels from spiking. Additionally, the antioxidants and other micronutrients found in vegetables can help to improve insulin sensitivity and regulate glucose metabolism. Adding protein and healthy fats to a salad can also help slow digestion and stabilize glucose levels. Overall, incorporating salads into a balanced diet can be a helpful strategy.
