Ham and cheese sandwiches have been popular among many people for years. People look up to it as a healthy and delicious breakfast option. Considering its effects on blood sugar, it is imperative to mention that this sandwich is made of bread. Bread is a refined and processed form of carbohydrate. This allows the carbohydrates to break down more quickly, which causes a spike in glucose levels.

Tips to optimise ham and cheese sandwich
• Try different varieties of bread. There may be a better bread for you. Use sourdough, multigrain, whole wheat bread etc. Consider almond flour or pure seed bread for a more stable response.
• Make the sandwich healthier by adding vegetables and protein. Fibre from vegetables and protein will stabilise glucose levels.
• Try not to use too many sauces or dressings as they contain added sugars and trans fats, resulting in hyperglycaemia.

Many people prepare the famous ham and cheese sandwich using processed meat, which can be unhealthy. It is better to use freshly sliced ham. If that is not possible, you may also use other meat alternatives, like freshly cooked chicken. This will not affect your glucose levels and will enhance your sandwich’s nutrition.
