Paneer perfection: Enjoying parathas without blood glucose spikes

Paratha has a high Glycemic index. Also, the fat content is higher than other kinds of bread. However, paneer has a lower GI and a high amount of protein. It is a healthy breakfast option when the flour in the bread is switched with a better alternative. The fat slows down the release of glucose in the bloodstream.

Optimizing glucose metabolism with protein-rich alternatives
• Try making your paneer paratha in cow ghee or grass-fed full-fat butter.
• Consider increasing the portion of stuffing in the paratha or adding another portion of protein and a bowl of vegetable salad to the meal to balance the macros.
• Follow the food flow – fibre> protein > complex carbohydrates
• Walk for 10 minutes after the meal or do some exercise.

Ghee, with its hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects, can control blood glucose spikes. Consuming ghee with a meal can lead to a lower rise in blood glucose levels compared to consuming the same meal without ghee. Ghee is also a source of healthy fats and is a low-GI food.
