Breakfast is just one of our most critical meals. Starting the day with a decent breakfast provides for us energy for the remainder of your day. This really is a lot more important if you are diabetic. Here then, are two of my personal favorite diabetic breakfast recipes.
FRUITY BRAN YOGURT
Pick any berry...a tiny banana, medium sized peach, half a cup of fresh blueberries... whatever you like best. Toss it in to a blender with 1 cup skim or non fat milk, 1/2 cup of plain non fat yogurt, with regards to a teaspoon of vanilla flavor, a teaspoon or two of sugar and 1/4 cup of one's favorite bran flakes. I love to add about 1/2 cup of ice. Blend until smooth and pour into an Tall glass or goblet. Sprinkle with cinnamon and wow! What a great and quick starter.
QUICK FRENCH TOAST
You don't need to give up pancakes or french toast if you have diabetes. Just be a couple of substitutions plus a great diabetic breakfast recipe is soon on your table.
Because of this one whisk 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of orange juice plus a dash of salt in a bowl. Right into a separate flat pan you'll need either 1/2 cup of crushed bran or corn flakes, or some crushed pecans. Or mix the two together for really taste. Melt several tablespoons of margarine in a fry pan. Dip slices of whole wheat grains bread into the egg mix after which in your crushed dry mix and line the griddle. Cook until brown on both sides. Serve with fresh peaches or blueberries being a topping. Who says cooking for diabetics must be boring?
