When it comes to controlling your blood sugar, every little bit helps. That’s why paying attention to the foods you’re eating and how they impact your glucose levels is important. One snack that often gets overlooked in this regard is a handful of almonds. They are a satisfying and healthy snack option and can help keep your blood sugar stable throughout the day.

To get the most out of your snack time, here are a few tips to keep in mind
• Choose a variety of nuts like almonds, cashews, and walnuts, and mix them for a satisfying and nutrient-rich snack that won’t spike your blood sugar.
• If you’re craving something sweet, try adding a few raisins to your snack mix. But be sure to pair them with a protein source like a whey protein smoothie to help stabilise your blood sugar.

So why are almonds such a great snack for controlling your blood sugar? The answer lies in their high fibre and healthy fat content, which slows down the absorption of glucose in the bloodstream. This means that you won’t experience the same kind of blood sugar spikes that you might with other snack options. By making small changes to your snacking habits, like incorporating more almonds, you can help keep your blood sugar levels stable and avoid the energy crashes that can come with sugary snacks.
