Snacks that Can Help Maintain Steady Blood Sugar
There are many reasons for people to try to maintain steady blood sugar levels. Not only does blood sugar help determine whether individuals feel energized or tired, focused or distracted, as well as hungry or full, keeping blood sugar levels stable could help prevent serious conditions, such as diabetes. One of several ways for individuals to help stabilize their blood sugar and prevent blood sugar spikes is by eating specific snacks every few hours. Some of these snacks include:
- Popcorn – When eaten without butter and oil that are high in saturated fats, popcorn is considered a low-calorie, whole-grain snack.
- Boiled eggs – Not only are boiled eggs easy to transport, but their high protein content may help stave off hunger while stabilizing blood sugar.
- Yogurt – Like boiled eggs, nonfat Greek yogurt is an on-the-go, high-protein snack.
- Vegetables – Whether it’s spinach, kale, green beans, or a different type of non-starchy vegetable, eating greens may help stabilize blood sugar thanks to their low carbohydrate and high fiber content.
While these foods may help control blood sugar, anyone who’s concerned about their glucose levels should consult their doctor. That’s because a doctor can use family history, current symptoms, and tests to measure sugar levels to create a treatment plan (if needed) for the individual, as well as prescribe any necessary medication.
