GO LOW

Best Health - - EATS -

Ex­plore low-glycemic ver­sions of your favourite foods. Buck­wheat is a pseudo-ce­real that’s a great source of sol­u­ble fi­bre, which helps with glu­cose ab­sorp­tion. If this in­gre­di­ent in­trigues you, try soba noo­dles or ex­per­i­ment with buck­wheat pan­cakes or bread. You could mix and match, too. “Sub­sti­tute half your ‘starch’ with a low-glycemic-in­dex al­ter­na­tive, such as pulses,” sug­gests Lewis. Make a batch of beans and rice, but go heav­ier on the for­mer or cook up a lentil shep­herd’s pie.
