Mastering Blood Sugar: Transforming Classic Rolls into a Balanced Meal

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Rolls can be high in simple carbs and may lead to hyperglycaemia. Chapati rolls made of whole wheat or maida get digested quickly into the bloodstream as they have a medium to high Glycaemic Index. However, with a few simple tweaks, you can enjoy a healthier and more balanced version of this classic dish.

Here’s how you can optimise your Rolls
• Consider using almond flour or coconut flour. They are low in carbs.
• Try including a source of protein. 100 grams of cooked paneer can be a great addition to balance your rolls. Slowing down the digestion process will make you feel full for a longer duration.
• Try adding non-starchy vegetables like baby corn and beans as salads to your rolls. This will provide additional fibre and nutrients while reducing the number of simple carbs in your meal.
• Follow the food flow – Fibre, protein, fat, complex carb.

Incorporating these four macronutrients and fibre into meals throughout the day can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, promoting overall health and well-being. It also helps maintain a steady flow of energy throughout the day, which prevents cravings.
