How to Keep Your Blood Sugar Steady

Imagine being more conscientious of the food we eat. Imagine enjoying healthy foods. Imagine feeling better, being more confident, moving with ease throughout your day, and being more comfortable in your skin. 

It all starts in our minds and in our kitchens!

Stocking our refrigerators and pantries with healthy foods is the first step in changing what goes into your mouth. Whole foods, not packaged and processed foods are what our bodies were intended to eat. 

I am addicted to sugar!

I am a sugar lover myself! I love ice-cream, frozen yogurt, chocolate, cookies, and the thick icing on the gooey brownies at Vaccaro’s Bakery! The more sugar I consume, the more I want it. That's the problem. It is addictive. 

I’m hungry all of the time!

I can relate! It seems as though the days I am hungrier are the days I am not consuming the things I should – like the water packed, nutrient dense veggies that help keep me energetic and hydrated. Other high carbohydrate type foods like bread and pasta have the same effect on our bodies as those sugary foods - satisfying right after consumption but soon after it's crash and burn time. Then the cycle begins when we reach for those same carbs when hunger strikes again. 

Keeping your blood sugar level steady all day is essential! How?

  • Add vegetables like leafy greens, crunchy peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
  • Eating every three hours.
  • Consuming protein at each meal. 

It may take a few weeks for your body to adjust to this new way of eating and you will get used to eating less if you allow yourself to. 

Give it a try for 2 weeks to see if you feel different. Then let me know how you did by leaving a comment below. Let's try and:

  • Savor each bite at every meal and slow down
  • Keep your blood sugar steady 
  • Hydrate your body! 
  • Eliminate processed foods 

Changing our nutrition is the number one way to make changes in our bodies.

Best in Health,
