Top 10 Low G.I. Foods

Posted on

The Glycemic Index (G.I.) is a system that ranks food between 1-100, based on their effect upon blood sugar levels. The trick to having sustained energy throughout the day lies with eating low G.I. foods that will help you sail through your busy schedule.

Here are some suggestions:

(1) Oatmeal
Be careful not to load it up with too much added sugar!

(2) Whole wheat bread
Look for varieties that don’t have hidden sugar – especially High Fructose Corn Syrup.

(3) Lentils
Try these in soups, or pot pies.

(4) Apples
Apples with peanut butter are a great afternoon snack.

(5) Bananas
Perfect, potassium-rich pick-me-up food.

(6) Brown rice
Make the switch from white rice today!

(7) All types of nuts
They are high in calories, but full of nutrition.

(8) Quinoa
This power-packed ancient grain can be a rice replacement, salad filler or soup enhancement.

(9) Yogurt
Try Greek yogurt for extra punch. Buy unsweetened and use stevia to sweeten it yourself.

(10) Meat and meat alternatives
Go for protein above carbs.

Get ready to cut out those candy bars and make some low G.I. choices today!
