Protein-Rich Breakfast Soup Helps Prevent Blood Sugar Dips
To support stable blood sugar and insulin levels through out the day and to help prevent mid afternoon dips in energy and focus, try starting your day with protein, non-starchy vegetables, and healthy fats. Integrate carbohydrate-rich foods later in the day in small amounts after lunch and after dinner.
To further support steady blood sugar and insulin levels throughout the day, consider this small study reported by WebMD Health News. It’s promising results suggest that eating carbs 15 minutes after a meal consisting of protein, vegetables, and fat (such as your lunch and dinner), will keep blood sugar and insulin levels significantly lower than when the carbs are eaten with the meal.
If you are particularly interested in supporting your gut flora and balance (hint: you should be interested, even if you don’t know what flora is), then choose resistant starches (write article for this) when you reach for carbs later in the day.
