Optimise this Breakfast Trio

Toasted multigrain bread, omelette, and vegetables seem perfect for a healthy breakfast. But multigrain bread has a relatively high GI and can cause a spike in blood sugar levels. Eating an egg omelette or scrambled egg will not cause a glucose spike. However, eating multigrain bread may lead to hyperglycemia due to increased blood glucose levels.

Optimising Your Breakfast Trio of Eggs, Multigrain Bread and Vegetables
• Eating bread with a source of healthy fats and proteins can help slow down digestion and the release of sugars into the bloodstream.
• Consider replacing multigrain bread with almond flour bread or seed-based bread.
• Consider eating salad, followed by protein intake (eggs), and then low-carb bread.
• Try adding healthy fats such as cheese to stabilise the glucose spikes. 

The high glycemic index of toasted multigrain bread means that it breaks down quickly in the body, releasing sugars into the bloodstream rapidly. Protein in eggs and fibre in vegetables are excellent sources of nutrition. But to reap their benefits, optimising your carb source is essential.
