Instead of: Croutons on your salad
Enjoy: Toasted walnuts

Croutons are basically all carbohydrate, which can be problematic when you’re trying to manage blood sugar. For a crunch that won’t put you into carb overload, go nuts. Walnuts provide a satisfying low-carb crunch while also delivering healthy fats (including a dose of plant-based omega 3 fats) that can help blunt blood sugar spikes. Another option: roasted chickpeas, which contain protein, fiber and magnesium.
