Regulated blood sugar levels can play a major role in your journey of achieving optimal health!
What is the Glycemic Index? It’s a system that ranks foods based on their effect on blood sugar levels.
Consistent levels of high blood sugar levels can lead to damage to vessels that supply blood to your major organs (eyes, heart, kidneys etc) as well as insulin resistance (essentially leading to weight gain).
Factors that lower the Glycemic Impact of your plate:
Adding healthy fats
Adding a high quality protein source
Example: By simply adding almond butter to this banana, I am slowing gastric emptying time and slowing the rate of glucose absorption – essentially lowering the rise in blood sugar.
