Eating a healthy breakfast is important, but some seemingly healthy choices, like a classic egg omelette with toasted whole wheat bread, can lead to spikes in blood sugar levels. Toasted whole wheat bread can quickly raise blood sugar levels. This is because the body breaks down the carbohydrates in bread into simple sugars, which are then absorbed into the bloodstream.

Stabilising sugar levels while having your favourite breakfast
• Almond flour bread or bread made from seeds like flax or chia has a lower GI and may be a better alternative to whole wheat bread.
• Starting your meal with a salad may help regulate blood sugar levels. The fibre in vegetables slows down the absorption of carbohydrates, preventing spikes in blood sugar.
• Try lettuce leaves or other leafy greens as a wrap instead of bread.
• Adding healthy fats like cheese may help slow down the absorption of carbohydrates, preventing spikes in blood sugar. Consider using low-fat cheese in moderation.
• Try experimenting with different fillings like spinach, mushrooms and peppers to add flavour and nutrition without bread.

Hyperglycemia due to toasted whole wheat bread is a common issue for people. As, toasted whole wheat bread has a medium to the high glycemic index (GI), so it can quickly raise blood sugar levels. However, by making simple substitutions and changes, you can help regulate your blood sugar levels and enjoy a healthy, delicious breakfast.
