If you manage your diet well and eat proteins like egg, fish, chicken or paneer or beans, then your protein requirements will be taken care off. With every meal eat a little bit of protein. Lower the amount of starches from your meals and add healthy oils like ghee, cold pressed coconut oil, cold pressed til oil. If at all you want to supplement then you can use whey protein powder.

Why Diabetics must Have Wheat Sprouts, Daily!

Why Diabetics must Have Wheat Sprouts, Daily!

Wheat sprouts benefits for diabetics

It is very important to keep blood sugar levels in check for diabetics. As most of the grains contain high carbohydrates, diabetes patients should choose the grains in their diet carefully.

Whole wheat is one of the best grains for diabetics.

Sprouted wheat grains contain high protein and fibers. They are lower in carbohydrates and calories than the non-sprouted wheat. Wheat sprouts also have a low glycaemic index which means they metabolize slowly in our body and do not cause a sharp increase in blood sugar levels. Sprouting also increases the value of grains making them rich in vitamin c and b complex.

Moreover, wheat sprouts also maintains cholesterol and blood sugar level, the two very important factors for diabetics.
