Selecting this seed rather than white rice may decrease the increase in blood sugar levels following a dinner by nearly 70 percent and maintain your blood sugar levels lower and steadier all night. That’s since the soluble fiber along with other substances in barley significantly slow the digestion and intake of the carbohydrate. Add barley to sauces, add to a sidedish, or place in stir fry or casserole.

4. Beans

While menu planning, use ‘bean cuisine‘ at least twice per week. The soluble fiber in most kinds of beans helps subdue high blood sugar levels. And since they’re full of protein, beans may be a substitute for beef in main dishes. Just watch the salt content. Always rinse canned beans before using. To save time cooking beans, buy a pressure cooker.
