Since nutrition and better eating habits are always a big topic. I believe that tips for living a healthier and happier life will be the best topic today.
I had someone the other day comment that they heard bread crumbs aren't good for you blood sugar levels. They ask if this was true? And if so, what are some healthy substitutes they could use when cooking?
Well, since bread crumbs are refined carbs, they can cause your blood sugar to spike. If you want a crunchy crust that's carb-free, try nuts. Coat meats, fish or veggies in crushed almonds or walnuts or your favorite nut. But remember: If you're frying your food in oil, be sure to calculate the calories of the oil, as nuts will absorb the cooking oil. Better yet, don't fry - bake!
