The following 3 foods are ideal in stabilizing blood sugar. Enjoy them several times per week as part of the anti inflammatory diet.
Apples: While apples do have significantly higher levels of sugar than berries, they’re actually incredibly effective at stabilizing blood sugar due to their high fiber content and a unique phytonutrient called phloretin which is only found in apples.
Beauty bonus: Apples contain the antioxidant Quercetin, which helps strengthen skin and clear blemishes on acne prone skin.
Beans and lentils: Legumes in general raise blood sugar very slowly- and even can help moderate the blood sugar response to the next meal you eat, whether it includes beans or not. Fiber-rich, beans and legumes also contian a substance called resistant starch (RS), which are fiber-like carbohydrates that increase the rate at which the body burns or oxidizes fat.
Beauty Bonus: Beans contain a variety of nutrients such as fiber, magnesium and protein which help neutralize the damaging compounds that harm your skin and prevent skin damage and signs of aging.
