When you make veggie soup, the fibre content in the vegetables can be lost. Moreover, vegetable soups lack protein and complex carbohydrates. If you make veggie soup with starchy vegetables, the carb content of the soup will increase. This will result in spikes in blood sugar.

Souper ways to manage your blood sugar levels
• Use cut broccoli instead of blending the soup. This will help preserve the fibre and nutrients of the vegetable.
• Having your broccoli soup without straining will help increase the fibre content of the soup.
• You can enhance your meal by either adding a protein-rich dish as a side or adding protein to your broccoli soup.

Broccoli is a rich source of dietary fibre. Fibre takes a long time to digest and this can help prevent spikes in blood sugar. Broccoli is a low-carb veggie and can help keep blood sugar levels in check. Further, broccoli has a very low glycemic index (GI). Overall, broccoli is an excellent food for glucose control.
