We’ve heard it a thousand times: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But when you have diabetes, they can be hard to plan. You may even repeat the same choices over and over again. That’s why, in today’s article we’re going to give you 4 breakfasts for diabetes that are finger-licking good. Try them and let us know!
Yogurt with fruit and cereals
This first diabetes breakfast alternative also makes an amazing snack. All you’ll need is:
- Greek yogurt
- A banana
- A handful of whole-grain cereal
- The topping of your choice: nuts, chopped fruits…
Remember that this list of ingredients is only a guideline. In fact, Greek yogurt can be mixed with whatever you like because it goes well with almost anything. Plus, it has a lot of protein and less carbohydrates and less sugar than regular yogurts.
You’ll see how tasty it is. And it won’t take you any time at all to prepare.
If you’re someone who eats breakfast at the office or on the way to work, this is the option for you. A fruit smoothie will be great for you. All you have to do is mix a little milk with the fruit you choose and blend it until it’s liquid and that’s it!
It’s that quick and easy.
Bread slice with salmon and cheese spread
Contrary to the previous option, if you are one of those who sit down to have breakfast and just take their time, try these toasts. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Toast some bread in the toaster or frying pan, whichever you prefer. Add a layer of cheese spread and then some thin slices of smoked salmon. To finish you can add a little oil on top and pepper.
Serve with a cup of coffee or whatever you prefer to drink and you will have a spectacular breakfast. Worthy of an Sunday in an American movie.
Oatmeal with fruit
Oatmeal is all the rage lately, and not for nothing. It helps with weight control, helps digestion, is healthy, controls cholesterol, helps you control glucose … Well, all a jewel.
To prepare it you will need:
- One cup of oatmeal.
- A glass of skimmed milk.
- Fruit to accompany it, the one you prefer.
The ingredients will depend on your preferences. If you like your oatmeal more liquid then you will have to add more milk and less oatmeal. But if you like it more solid, do it the other way around. Add more oats and less milk.
Then include pieces of fruit in the same bowl. You can mix several or just put one, it’s up to you. Strawberries, bananas, kiwi, pear… Your choice!
And c’est finí. A bowl of oatmeal with fruit, delicious and in just a moment.
Remember that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even more so when you have diabetes. After sleeping, breakfast will be your first choice of the day. It should be appropriate to how your blood glucose is when you wake up. The trick is to choose well.
