Stuck for healthy, low-GL breakfasts and snacks? Or just don’t have the time to whip up something every morning before your day begins? For anyone trying to balance their blood sugar and lose weight, eating a healthy, low-GL breakfast is a must.
When you wake up, your blood sugar level is low because you haven’t eaten in a while. Many people think that in order to lose weight they need to forgo food for as long as possible. The result? An insatiable craving for anything and everything and an almost non-existent resolve to make a healthy choice.
What you eat is vital to make sure you fuel your body with food rich in the vitamins and minerals needed to sustain your energy levels and balance your blood sugar for the rest of your busy day.
You might be thinking “easier said than done”, in which case you need to try Patrick Holford’s GL Diet Get up and Go shake. This delicious shake will not only add extra oomph to your healthy eating plan and give you that get up and go feeling but takes minimal time to prepare. Keep a container at home and/or at work so you’re never far from a healthy and quick snack.
With soy, quinoa proteins, apple powder, seeds, almonds, oat fibre and cinnamon as well as added vitamins and minerals for an extra health kick, this shake is delicious as well as nutritious. Blend it with your choice of milk (dairy/ soy/ almond/ rice) or yogurt or even water, together with your choice of fruit for a healthy and complete meal.
Simply blend 6 heaped teaspoons (30g) of powder with 250ml of your choice of milk or water and enjoy!
