Here’s a toast to your blood sugar

Often store-bought bread, even brown bread, contains refined carbs. The carbs break down and are absorbed into the blood very quickly. Depending on the quantity of bread you eat, the glucose load can cause blood sugar spikes. Brown bread also contains added sugars, which also cause blood sugar levels to increase.

Managing your blood sugar with this duo
• Try controlling the portion of brown bread and peanut butter you eat to just a toast and a tablespoon of peanut butter.
• Having bread, peanut butter, and a protein shake can help lower glucose absorption and prevent blood spikes.
• Sprinkling some seeds on the reduced portion of brown bread with peanut butter can help to stabilize blood glucose.
• Try using low-carb bread made from lupin flour, almond flour, etc., instead of brown bread.

Choosing whole grain or grain-free bread can help to manage blood sugar levels. Further, adding peanut butter to the bread can help to improve blood sugar in people with type-2 diabetes. And, since peanut butter is made from peanuts with a low glycaemic index, it will not cause any blood sugar spikes.
