Macarons Fiesta: Sweet Fun Without the Glucose Rollercoaster

Loved by kids and adults alike, macarons are a delicious dessert. It contains added sugars (sucrose and glucose). These simple carbs are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and cause spikes in blood sugar levels. Eating a lot of macarons can cause hyperglycemia.

Sweet ways to manage blood sugar levels while eating macarons
• Try avoiding processed desserts made containing refined flour and added sugar.
• Try eating macarons along with a protein such as a whey protein shake. This will help to stabilize your glucose levels.
• If your glucose levels are falling below 60, then you can consider having one macaron for a quick energy pick-up.

Eating sugary desserts causes a release of feel-good hormones that give you a natural high. However, this is often followed by a sugar crash, leaving you feeling tired, irritable and craving more sugar. This vicious cycle can lead to metabolic syndromes. So, if you’re craving something sweet, have some whole fruit or sugar-free chewing gum or mint instead.
