Pasta is a popular dish made by mixing wheat flour and water. When paired with vegetables, it can be a nutritious and filling meal. But pasta is also high in carbohydrates since it’s made of processed refined flour. Refined carbs are easy to break down and can spike glucose levels. So try the tips given here.

Optimise your pasta meal to make it glucose healthy
• Try to consume pasta with vegetables. This leads to reduced glucose fluctuations.
• Try to opt for whole-grain pasta and add more non-starchy vegetables. This will increase fibre and nutrient intake, eventually slowing down the digestion of carbohydrates.
• Try to have smaller portions and add protein-rich foods to your diet, such as beans or grilled chicken. These changes can also aid in glucose control.
• You can have apple cider vinegar (ACV) before a meal. Additionally, take a short walk right after your meal. These can balance blood glucose levels.
• The food flow of fibre > protein > complex carbs can be followed to keep glucose levels in check.

The link between the consumption of pasta with vegetables and glucose metabolism depends on various factors. These include the type and quantity of pasta, the types of vegetables added and individual dietary needs. Vegetable pasta does not have protein and fibre. So, It is best to follow these suggestions to manage blood sugar levels better.
