A great thing with protein and fat is that it slows down the conversion from food to blood sugar which means if you’re still eating carbohydrates even though I recommend trying to get rid of as much as possible. You can add fat and protein to your meal to slow down the absorption of the carbohydrates which means you will not get as strong peak in the blood sugar as you would have with the carbohydrates alone. Now that said, it still will affect your blood sugar but just for you who hasn’t started out or have a 100% commitment, it’s a step in the right direction. NOW, let’s look at those Top 10 foods that does not affect the blood sugar. Bare in mind that this list has no specific order and the first or last one doesn’t mean they’re the best or healthiest.
Onion & Garlic – are very healthy and beneficial and is actually the food that has less pesticides and chemicals on them of the conventional food (if you feel that organic is too expensive) which makes it cheaper and easier to buy since it’s not that big difference between the organic ones. So, garlic is really awesome for TONS of stuff. It helps for example with:
- High cholesterol
- Poor digestion
- Diabetes and Blood sugar of course
- Yeast infections
- Boost immune system
- Increase absorption of iron and zinc
- Cold and flu
- It’s anti-fungal, parasites, allergies and so on.
Back in the old days, I’m talking like hundreds and thousands of years, this was used a lot by doctors since already then, they knew how great garlic was.
Onions are a very good source of vitamin C, B6, biotin, chromium, calcium and dietary fiber. In addition, they contain good amounts of folic acid and vitamin B1 and K. It’s also a great help for the liver.
Leafy greens – this is the most important part of your meals. Leafy greens are so healthy, full of micronutrients like vitamins and minerals, are very beneficial for the body in so many ways and they are alkaline which supports a tremendous amount of health, especially in this world where almost all “normal” food is so acid for our bodies. This is just pure superfood with no effect on the blood sugar.
Fatty seeds – healthy seeds full of healthy fats like flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds and alfalfa seeds are super healthy and are very high in fat and protein and have either no carbs or low amount and almost exclusively all of those carbs are dietary fiber, these seeds have no Glycemic load which is a number that measure how much it effects the blood. So next time you put cereal in your yoghurt, replace it with some great seeds or just eat them as they are as snacks.
Avocados – it’s delicious, can be used in many ways and easy to prepare and eat, have as a snack or whatever you want. Avocado is full of healthy vitamins and minerals as well and also have a great amount of the healthy fatty acids Omega 3 and 6. It’s also full of Vitamin A, C, E, K, B6, Folate and it’s also anti-inflammatory.
Coconut – if you eat the raw meat, cocoflakes or the coconut oil, you will not have to worry about your blood sugar since Coconut has a high amount of fat and most of the carbs are dietary fiber and it has basically no Glycemic load at all. We need often use coconut oil if we cook something (which is very rarely) and use it for baking raw desserts of some sort.
