Three quick and easy diabetic diet breakfast ideas
For most of us, breakfast is the most neglected meal of the day. But if you're on a diabetic diet to control your blood sugar levels, a morning meal is a must!

“The body really needs the nutrients that breakfast provides to literally ‘break the fast' that results during sleeping hours,” explains Kelly Kennedy, a dietician from Everyday Health. “Having a source of healthy carbohydrates along with protein and fibre is the perfect way to start the morning.”

What's more, a good breakfast revs up your morning metabolism and keeps you energised throughout the day. Pressed for time? You don't have to create an elaborate on speed - check out these three blood sugar-friendly breakfast options to help you stay healthy and get on with your day!

Three breakfast ideas for a diabetic diet

#1: Fruit smoothie
Smoothies aren’t only chockfull of nutrients – they’re also super-quick and easy to whip up! For a meal in a minute, blend one cup of fat-free milk or plain fat-free yoghurt with a half-cup of fruit chunks or berries, such as bananas, blueberries or strawberries. Add one teaspoon of wheat germ, a teaspoon of nuts or seeds and ice and blend for a delicious, filling breakfast. To save even more time, measure out your ingredients the night before.

Blood sugar worries? 
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!
 
When this research first crossed my desk I couldn’t believe it!
 
The latest blood sugar science shows that your body’s own safety mechanism is why your current blood sugar solution may be selling you short.
 
In fact, this research confirms that targeting only your body’s natural insulin and your pancreas to conquer blood sugar is like trying to douse a forest fire with a glass of water.
 
But this research has also led to some really exciting news for you—a breakthrough in blood sugar science that no one saw coming.
 
Get ready to sigh with sweet relief!

#2: Breakfast burrito
This easy, satisfying meal is ideal for an on-the-go breakfast if you wrap it in foil. To make a breakfast burrito, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a non-stick skillet and scramble one egg with spinach, onions and green peppers. Place the ingredients in a warmed whole-wheat tortilla, top with cheddar cheese (and some salsa if you like) and voila – a breakfast that’s sure to keep you going until lunch!
 
#3: Bagel with nut butter
If you’re a bagel lover, you’ll adore this breakfast option! Bagels are notoriously large, so you’ll want to consider enjoying bagel thins instead to ensure you don’t overload on carbohydrates. Top bagel thins with a nut butter of your choice such as peanut butter or almond butter for a healthy dose of unsaturated fat and protein. Now that’s what you call a satisfying, low-carb energy boost!

THE BIGGEST COVER UP IN HISTORY: Lower cholesterol and statins could be making you older, sicker and weaker.
 
Who would’ve guessed that these tasty breakfasts are suitable for a diabetic diet?
