The Best Vegetables for Improved Sugar and Insulin Control

Last week we showed the best fruits for low Glycemic Load (GL). This measures the rate at which food is turned into glucose for energy via insulin and thus of great importance for those of us with PCOS, who are vulnerable to the onet of pre- and type 2 diabetes
 
This week we focus on vegetables, which are also crucial to a healthy diet to maintain glucose and insulin levels.

They’re less tricky when it comes to GL values. But vegetables have differing ratings, too, and anyone with PCOS  should be aware which have a low GL value, namely 10 or less. In fact, the following vegetables actually have a GL value of 0. 

  • Alfalfa
  • Artichoke
  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Green beans
  • Lettuce
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Radishes
  • Sauerkraut
  • Spinach
  • Squash
