Adding a salad bowl to every meal can help to improve your fibre intake. Salads contain green leafy vegetables such as lettuce, spinach, etc. which are rich sources of fibre. Fibres are essential for good digestion and better blood glucose control. They slow down the absorption of glucose from the small intestine. Raw vegetables are also rich in essential vitamins and minerals.

Add more punch to your salads
• To maximize the benefit of salads, you can add some complex carbohydrates. Quinoa or millet is a good choice. They are packed with fibre, vitamins, and minerals that can help to lower blood sugar levels and promote healthy digestion.
• Adding a dressing of olive oil and apple cider vinegar to your salad will improve its glycemic load and lower its glycemic index.
• Toss in some nuts and seeds into your green salads. They are a great source of healthy fats, fibre, and protein. They also help to control sugar spikes

Research has shown that a diet high in fibre can help improve insulin sensitivity and lower the risk of insulin resistance. Next time you sit down for a meal, don’t forget to add a salad bowl to your plate. The added fibre and nutrients will improve digestion and blood sugar control.
