We all know what are the implications of unbalance sugar level so taking actions to maintain a stable blood sugar can have an enormous effect on the overall health.

Coconut Oil: We believe coconut oil is a superfood that should be a staple in everyone’s diet. Coconut oil is an amazing source of MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides). MCTs are types of fat that your body easily converts into a source of energy called ketones. When you burn ketones for energy instead of sugar, you naturally stabilize blood sugar and improve fat burning. Try supplementing your diet with high-quality MCT oil which is more potent. have you heard about bulletproof coffee? And here is a great fusion Mediterranean recipe that uses coconut oil in a delicious Mediterranean chicken in pesto dish
Olive Oil: Olive oil (and olives) are an amazing source of antioxidants. Antioxidants have been shown useful in protecting our body from the damages caused by diabetes like the terrible neuropathy and heart disease.
Grass fed butter: Make sure your butter is grass fed and you have another delicious superfood ingredient according to many nutritionists and also Dr. David Jockers doctor of natural medicine, functional nutritionist, and corrective care chiropractor. Grass fed butter provide healthy fats as well as metabolism boosting nutrients. For those who are sensitive to dairy try grass fed ghee instead. Avocado: you have to love avocado and you should eat plenty of it. Avocados are full of healthy fats as well as minerals and fiber.
Lemons: The citric acid in lemons and limes provide a blood sugar stabilizing effect. Sprinkle plenty of lemon on your salad today or add it to your water.
