From Plate to Pancreas: Mixed Green Salad for Sugar Control

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Green leafy vegetables are a rich source of fibre and are comparatively lower in carbohydrates. This prevents a spike and improves your glucose response by reducing the quantity of insulin that the body needs. The fibre stays longer in the system and takes longer to break into sugar which can cause hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels.

Optimise your Mixed Green Salads for Better Sugar Control
• Pair the fibre-rich salad with good fats like avocados and nuts like pine nuts or pumpkin seeds to prevent glucose spikes.
• Add complex carbohydrates like millet and quinoa or protein like chicken to make it a fulfilling meal and balance the blood sugar.
• Add some leaves of mint and coriander for freshness and taste.

Green leafy vegetables are rich in dietary fibre, and they are associated with the improved ability of the body to delay the absorption of carbs. Thus, they promote the feeling of fullness with a reduced need for energy-dense foods. So, plan your mixed salad greens to reduce the glucose spikes while fulfilling your hunger and enjoying the taste!
