In this video, I’m going to show you the Top 10 foods that does NOT affect your blood sugar. These are both healthy, beneficial and of course perfect for people with both types of Diabetes.\ \ Before we get started I just wanted to share a quick little tip for you who are just starting out with eating healthier and different and that have a hard time getting rid of all the carbohydrates. 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.
Number 1: Onion & Garlic. Is 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\ Antioxidants, Cold and flu. It’s anti-fungal\ Parasites\ Allergies and so on. 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.
Number 2: Leafy greens. 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.
Number 3: 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 and according to my experiences with seeds and also according to nutritiondata.self.com which is a huge database with food and their nutrition, these seeds have no Glycemic load which is a number that measure how much it effects the blood sugar.
Number 4: Avocados. 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.
Number 5: Coconut. If you eat the raw meat, coco flakes 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.
Number 6 is nuts. Nuts like walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts or almonds are super high in healthy fats and proteins as well, barely any carb (which again is just dietary fiber) and is very anti-inflammatory. Short said: Nuts are healthy, great snacks that doesn’t mess with your blood sugar.
Number 7: Herbs. Basil, cilantro, oregano, mint, lemon balm and so on are very good because they have basically no macronutrients, which is the proteins, the fat and the carbs, but instead a lot of vitamins and minerals so they have no effect on the blood sugar but gives great taste to food and have healthy vitamins and minerals and a lot of cleansing and healing properties.
Number 8: Eggs. A great source of the very essential vitamin B12 and good amount of protein and fat. No effect on the blood sugar and a great way to start the day and they’re easy to cook and cheap as well. What not to love? Just be careful not to eat too much since eggs are a dairy product which makes our body acids so compensate with an avocado and some salad to it,
Number 9: Butter and cheese. And I’m talking real real butter without any additives, that is high in fat and is just Pure Butter! Cheese is harder to mess around with but even though, the animals that the cheese is made from can have been treated badly and been fed growth hormones which of course affects the outcome of the cheese products so make sure it’s organic here as well.
Number 10 is: Oils. Oils are 100% fat and you got to be very delicate and careful with what you choose. I only use organic coconut oil, organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil or organic hemp oil. I always make sure that it’s organic, high quality. and nothing bogus in it because using normal conventional sunflower oil, or palm oil and all those other mixes are just pure crap and bottles of chemical shit storm, frankly speaking.\ \ But the good ones are fantastic to have on your food to spice up the flavor or to cook if you have to and of course my favorite, make your own pesto!\ \ So now, you’ve been going through the Top 10 Foods that doesn’t affect the blood sugar and you also saw what health benefits and properties they have.
