Guac and roll: Enjoying avocado dip without spiking your blood sugar

With its origin in Mexico, guacamole is a healthy dip made with avocados. These green and creamy fruits are dense in nutrients and contain heart-healthy fats. Having avocados regularly in the form of dips like guacamole helps to lose weight, reduces cholesterol and increases sensitivity to insulin. However, on the one hand, avocado is a rich source of healthy fats like monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAS) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAS) but, on the other hand, lacks glucose properties. Hence, its consumption could cause hypoglycemia.

The healthy fats of guacamole regulate blood sugar
• In case of hypoglycemia, you can pair guacamole with 30 gm of sourdough to stabilise glucose levels.
• In case of hyperglycaemia, you may remove the carbohydrate source and substitute it with a protein, like eggs or grilled chicken. This will help maintain blood sugar levels.

A recent weight loss trial based on the consumption of avocados showed improved fasting glucose and reduced adiposity. Making avocados a regular part of the diet may help with weight management and blood glucose levels. Therefore, guacamole can be a good addition to your health regime.
