Many care about their health and do everything to protect it and make it more solid and safe. This topic also includes the attention that many pay to the levels of glycaemia present in the blood, to avoid unpleasant consequences and future problems that no one would like to have. On this topic, we had already given some advice in “Eliminate aging and high blood sugar with this unsuspected but really effective ingredient”. And, again relating to the glycemic index, we had also explained one thing in particular not to do in “Be careful because this drink that we take every morning raises the blood sugar like this”. Today we want to stay on the subject, but seeing it from another point of view. And we want to point out an ideal first course that could help us keep blood glucose levels steady and stable.
Who would have thought that pasta cooked in this way lowered the glycemic index so easily
So, we know that, if we don’t have any health problems that prevent us, we can now eat some pasta without raising our glycemic index too much. But we need to know exactly what to do in order to achieve this without doing damage. The Veronesi Foundation gives very useful advice, explaining that the first should always be seasoned with vegetables. And who would have thought that pasta cooked in this way lowered the glycemic index so easily. It seems, in fact, that the levels of blood sugar in our blood are also decided by the amount of fiber we decide to take in our diet. And it is for this reason that, given that fiber is highly contained in vegetables, the Foundation indicates this as the ideal first course.
The Veronesi Foundation explains to us why pasta and vegetables can be an excellent first course for the level of glycaemia present in our blood
In fact, rather than presenting a plain pasta with a little oil at the table, the addition of vegetables will be ideal to help us control our glycemic index once and for all. Obviously, this change alone will not be enough to revolutionize the situation. We will have to include this type of pasta, therefore, in the wider Mediterranean diet, to be followed also according to the instructions of our doctor. But certainly now we are aware that, except in health situations that require it, we will not necessarily have to give up the first. Rather, all we will have to do is know how to cook it and above all how to cook it. As for this second aspect, in our previous article “Here’s how to cook pasta to lower the glycemic index without giving up the first” we give very useful advice on this that many will surely want to follow.
