Legumes and their benefits on lowering blood sugars
Recently we spoke to our good friend Associate Professor Kouris of Total Nutrition and asked her what people could add to our meals if they wanted to make them a serving for 2, or just add something to make them a really big serving for 1 (they are already a 350gm generous serving but we always like chatting to Professor Kouris before giving you advice)
Professor Kouris is also the owner of our delicious and health biscuit range, Skinnybiks - we stock all 3 yummy flavours and a recent study has shown that these also lower blood sugar levels.
Professor Kouris said:
more satisfying, higher in protein and fibre and lower GI carbs
(legumes are lower GI than Basmati rice and legumes have been shown to be
particularly good at lowering blood sugars in people with diabetes whereas
rice can raise blood sugars).
rosemary, oregano and spices as per taste (e.g cumin or curry powder)
and extra virgin olive oil for extra antioxidants.
