Skip the Sugar Crash: Spice Up Your White Toast and Tea for Lasting Energy!

Starting your day with a breakfast that is primarily composed of carbohydrates and free sugars, such as toasted white bread with milk tea, can lead to a spike in blood glucose levels, followed by a drop that can leave you feeling tired and hungry shortly after eating.

Adding some fibre-rich vegetables and protein to your breakfast can help to slow down the release of glucose into your bloodstream and provide sustained energy throughout the morning.

Simple Tweaks for Sustained Energy and Focus
• To avoid a spike in your blood sugar levels, it’s best to avoid pairing bread with tea. Instead, try to keep a 2-hour gap between them.
• Consider adding some vegetables to the bread or have them on the side for fibre along with a source of protein.
• Fibre and protein can help in slowing down the release of glucose in the bloodstream, promoting better blood sugar management.

Toasted white bread tea with milk can lead to a rapid spike in glucose levels, as the meal is predominantly carbohydrate-based and contains free sugars from milk. This spike is then followed by a subsequent drop in blood sugar levels as the body secretes insulin to regulate the levels. Hence it is imperative to regularise the intake of these food items.
