Are you a fan of savoury breakfasts or sweet ones? Well, you can choose a waffle or a pancake as a breakfast option. But the first meal sets the tone for the rest of the day, and you might end up craving sugar all day. So, it is preferable to go for a savoury breakfast and balance your blood sugar levels.

Get the best out of your savoury breakfast
• Try to start your day with a healthy savoury breakfast instead of a sweet pancake or a waffle. It will help manage your glucose levels.
• Try to avoid adding sugars to your meal or savoury breakfast and even beverages. This will prevent glucose spikes.
• Consider adding proteins and fats to your stuffing or curries. This will make your breakfast more filling.
• You can add a squeeze of lemon juice to your savoury meals. This will help slow down the digestion of sugar.
• Try to implement the food flow — have fibre followed by protein and complex carbs.

A savoury breakfast is rich in many components like minerals and vitamins compared to a sweet breakfast. In addition, since the growth hormones and cortisol levels are high in the morning, a savoury breakfast helps control the release of glucose in the bloodstream and avoids glucose spikes during the day.
