Tips for choosing a diabetes friendly breakfast
- Look for higher protein, lower carb choices. In general, these type foods will minimize glucose excursions.
- Higher carb foods that contain extra fiber and/or whole grains can also be a good choice in moderation. These foods usually contain more fiber which has been shown to moderate glucose levels.
- Avoid added sugars, sources include processed breakfast cereals, breakfast pastries, juice beverages and jellies.
- Make breakfast ahead of time to avoid having to use restaurant drive through options which can be very high in carbs. Try making lower carb breakfast muffins to reheat, boiled eggs, or keep lower carb Greek yogurt on hand for a grab and go option.
