What About Canned Tomato Soups and the GI for Cantaloupe?
(Hobbs, New Mexico)
Is it alright to have a serving of canned tomato soup with a simple sandwich for a low glycemic food plan? What about the glycemic index for cantaloupe?
Lifetime Fat Loss Answers:
Canned tomato soup is probably low glycemic. Check the additives. Unless it has maltodextrin in it it's probably ok. Try to find one with no additives at all. By simple sandwich I am assuming you mean one not loaded with calories. I would say if you use sprouted grain breads (like Ezekiel or Food for Life brands) and minimize the mayonnaise, it's fine. Load it with veggies instead, lettuce, tomato and pickle. You could also use hummus or guacamole instead of mayonnaise.
Hummus is good with lettuce, tomato and cheese or guacamole with lettuce, tomato and cheese. With the hummus or guacamole you are getting plant fats that are unsaturated and contain the essential fatty acids. You could try a half sandwich with soup and then have fruit for dessert. If it's a creamy tomato soup it will be somewhat filling so it may be enough food for you.
As far as cantaloupe, melons are high glycemic but I believe cantaloupe has a moderately high index (not as high as watermelon) and if it's not over ripe it will be less so. Just stay away from the super ripe ones.
