Just because you may have diabetes doesn’t mean you’re forever STUCK shoving TASTELESS food for breakfast for the rest of your life.
There are so many healthy and super delicious options to eat first thing in the morning...
That you’ll have a blast exploring and picking your favorites.
Eating right can help dramatically CONTROL for type 1 (and in many cases REVERSE type 2 diabetes)
So get ready to get your appetite rolling…
We’ve compiled a list of our favorite TASTY and HEALTHY foods to brighten your morning.
I cannot rave enough about how good oatmeal is! Oatmeal is both healthy and a time-saver. For your choice of oatmeal, we recommend rolled or steel-cut oats as they’re a lot less processed.
Go wild (relatively speaking) with the toppings. Add nuts for a crunch and some fruits for delicious sweetness. Mango is a great option that creates the perfect cocktail of flavors!
If you’d like to add the “overnight” part to your breakfast, then the night before... take a part of oatmeal and mix it with two parts water or some low-fat milk.
Come morning, you’ll find a creamy, delicious bowl waiting for you in the fridge.
There’s a lot of, let’s say, turbulence between sweets and diabetes. If you have a sweet tooth that just won’t go away,
Why not give your classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich a healthy twist?
A little no-sugar-added almond, peanut, or any sort of nut butter, some fresh fruits: Berries, strawberries, raspberries, etc,
And a vessel to carry all the gooey deliciousness. A whole-grain slice of toast will work or you can replace it with whole-grain waffles or pancakes.
We’re about to end McDonalds’ career with this mouth-watering egg sandwich!
There are ONLY six grams of protein in eggs-- whether that’s boiled, poached, and scrambled.
And since protein is known to take its time to digest, it’s ideal for diabetes and for keeping your blood sugar levels stable.
Take a nice Pita bread or Deli Rye English Muffin, Or whole-wheat if you can’t find the healthier options.
Cook a scrambled egg to perfection, sprinkle some low-fat cheese, and for extra flavor, add a nice, sleek tomato slice. For even more protein, you’re free to add a slice of lean meat such as turkey.
NATURAL Greek yogurt is the superior yogurt-- convince us otherwise. It packs more protein than regular yogurt.
Take some yogurt, a little fresh or frozen fruit-- there’s no difference here-- add some nuts to add extra healthy fats and protein.
And there, you have yourself an effortless, satisfying meal you can make in a moment before work.
Here’s another time-saving overnight option. Ready for a high in fiber, low in digestible carbs, and super yummy meal?
Take around an ounce of chia seeds, a cup of unsweetened almond milk, and a sprinkle of vanilla extract before sealing the concoction.
Shake it to mix the ingredients before storing overnight.
Come morning you’ll love it! And so will your family!
To counter the super-easy recipes we’ve had so far, why not crank up the heat up a notch?
Take some fresh bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms, and saute away until they’re soft and tender. Add spices to your liking.
Finally, take the chicken sausage and finish it off with some water. Let this cook for a few minutes as you bask in the appetizing aromas.
The final step is adding the sweet potato-- diced into bite-size cubes for a little vitamin C and extra to sweeten your meal.
There’s a reason why avocados are so popular.
They’re amazing when it comes to STEADYING blood sugar levels...
As well as adding a fiber and monounsaturated fatty acids-filled element to your meal. To top it off they are a taster's delight!
