Did you know that your favourite childhood comfort food, the grilled cheese sandwich, could surprisingly impact your glucose metabolism? Bread’s simple carbs break down into glucose, while cheese’s saturated fat can lead to insulin resistance. To optimise this sandwich, use whole-grain bread, low-fat cheese, portion control, and add protein and veggies.

Maximising grilled cheese goodness: Tips for better blood sugar control
• You may choose low-carb bread options, like those made with almond flour, to increase fibre intake and slow down glucose release compared to refined white bread.
• Consider adding veggies like spinach, tomato, or avocado to increase fibre and nutrient intake.
• You may use protein sources like turkey, chicken, or tofu to slow digestion and prevent glucose spikes.
• Practice portion control by limiting your sandwich to one or half and pairing it with a side salad or soup.
• You may have a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar diluted in water for 5-10 minutes before eating to help regulate glucose levels.

In summary, the humble grilled cheese sandwich may have more to offer than the delicious taste. Pairing healthier bread and cheese options can stabilise glucose metabolism, reducing the risk of blood sugar fluctuations. Go ahead and enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich, but remember that portion control is the key to ensuring that you control glucose spikes.
