BEST Breakfast to Eat for Diabetes

According to Amy Goodson, MS, RD, CSSD, LD. one of the best breakfasts you can eat if you have diabetes is oatmeal topped with berries and nuts, with a side of eggs!

"If you have diabetes, your goal should be to include high-fiber carbohydrates with protein at each meal and snack, starting at breakfast," says Goodson. "Both fiber and protein slow down digestion,

so together, they help you feel full faster, stay full longer, and can help blunt blood sugar spikes."

Oatmeal with nuts and berries

Oatmeal is one of the healthiest foods you can eat for breakfast, whether you have diabetes or not. Its high soluble fiber content has been known to fight inflammation,

keep you full throughout the morning, and improve your gut health.For those with diabetes, this fiber can help control blood sugar levels while also helping to improve

your insulin resistance-two very important functions if you have diabetes or pre-diabetes.Not only can you get fiber from the oats themselves, but Goodson suggests paying special attention

to the types of toppings you eat because they can make or break the meal."Berries and nuts also contain fiber, with nuts having the added benefit of some protein and healthy fat to help keep those

blood sugar stable, which makes them the ultimate oatmeal topping," says Goodson.

Eggs on the side

Oatmeal contains plenty of fiber to help those with diabetes, but Goodson mentions that oatmeal on its own may not provide you with enough protein.

"While we get some protein in the bowl of oatmeal, it's not enough considering we want most adults to get 20 to 30 grams of protein in the morning," says Goodson.
