Solving the Blood Sugar Puzzle: The Chicken Caesar Salad Connection!

Written by Team Ultrahuman

With the crispiness of the lettuce, the croutons’ crunch, the chicken’s savoury taste, and the tanginess of the dressing, Caesar salad with chicken is a popular dish worldwide. The salad is considered healthy and nutritious, with fibre (lettuce), protein (chicken), and carbs (dressing and croutons) altogether. Even though caesar salad with chicken is a balanced dish, it can still impact your glucose metabolism.

Optimise your Salad for more Health Benefits
• Control the portion of croutons as they are high in carbohydrates.
• Have a small portion of the Worcestershire sauce since it contains a lot of carbohydrates and sugar.
• You can add more vegetables to Caesar Salad and Chicken. Vegetables can help lower the meal’s glycemic load and regulate blood sugar levels.

The chicken in the salad is a source of protein, which can help slow down glucose absorption into the bloodstream, reducing glucose spike chances. The Caesar salad dressing contains high amounts of fat, reducing the glycemic response. However, the high-carbohydrate croutons in the salad can increase a meal’s glycemic load, leading to a greater postprandial rise in blood glucose levels. So tweak your salad to get the most out of it!
