Most of the people usually miss breakfast while getting ready for college or work and some have even developed a habit to only take a cup of tea or coffee in the morning even if it’s a holiday. But everyone needs to know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
According to health dietitian, Kelly Kennedy, breakfast is just like breaking the fast as the body needs to meet its nutrients requirement that have been utilized during the sleep. A great way to start your day would be to have breakfast with the appropriate amount of healthy carbohydrates and fibers in it.
Ideal foods for breakfast include the foods which have a low glycemic index. These foods prevent a sudden increase in the blood glucose level not only during the morning hours, but also after lunch. There is an ideal combination of protein and fat in the peanut butter and almond butter, and taking these in breakfast will keep you full, that is also recommended by the American Diabetes Association. Not only this, a healthy and energy-rich breakfast also acts as a fuel for the whole day and keeps your metabolism running throughout the day.
So, if you are a diabetic and don’t have enough time to find out the appropriate foods for your breakfast, here are the seven diabetes-friendly breakfasts which are healthy and also provide enough energy.
1. Breakfast Shake
If you are usually short of time and need a solution for a healthy and full of energy breakfast, just blend one cup of fat-free milk or fat-free yogurt with half a cup of fruits. Fruits may include strawberries, bananas, apples or blueberries.
To add more flavour and filling to it, you can add a teaspoon of wheat germ, a teaspoon of nuts, and ice in it. Another time-saving tip would be to cut down and measure all the ingredients the night before.
