What do you typically have for breakfast?
Toast? Cereal? Oatmeal? Orange juice?
These are all pretty typical options, right?
Trouble is they have one major downfall in common. They are relatively high carb foods.
Sure, some people can tolerate a slice of bread here and there, or a small bowl of oatmeal. But, many can't. It just sends their blood sugar soaring.
One of my personal favorite breakfasts is a mixed veggie omelet or veggie scramble (recipe below). I love getting a big fix of veggies early in the morning. They contain loads of vitamins, minerals and fiber and they are low in carbs.
Below you'll find a round up of some delicious breakfast recipes to fill your diabetic friendly diet.
1. Low Carb Bircher Muesli
Made with a blend of chia, almond meal, flax, nuts and berries – this is a high fiber meal that is absolutely delicious.
2. Spinach Stuffed Tomatoes
Make a whole bunch of these ahead and keep in the fridge. Warm up when you're ready to go for a sensational delight.
3. Mixed Veggie Egg Scramble
My favorite. Whip up a whole bunch of veggies you have on hand and scramble eggs in at the very last minute. Serve in a bowl as is or with a delicious little side salad.
4. Healthy Egg Muffins: Kale & Tomato
Egg muffins make a great breakfast on the run and can be eaten hot or cold. Make a big batch and keep in the fridge.
5. Big Breakfast Pizza
Pizza for breakfast is a real treat. This egg-based pizza is awesome!
6. Easy Diabetic Breakfast: Mixed Berry Parfait
If you do feel like a slightly sweet breakfast, try this parfait blend. It is a little on the higher carb side so is best suited for an active morning where you can burn the excess carbs off right away.
7. Roasted Nut Low Carb Muesli
Make a mix of your favorite nuts and seeds and serve with a side of low carb fruit. Lots of healthy fats to fuel a busy morning.
Give some of those ideas a try. I hope you try the veggie scramble. You'll love it. 😉
