Breakfast is one of our most important meals. Starting the day with an above average breakfast provides for us energy for the rest of the day. This is even more important if you are diabetic. Here then, are two of the best diabetic breakfast recipes.
FRUITY BRAN YOGURT
Pick any fresh fruit...a little banana, mid-sized peach, half a mug of fresh blueberries... what you may like best. Toss it right into a blender with 1 cup skim or non fat milk, 1/2 cup of plain non fat yogurt, about a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a teaspoon or a couple of sugar and 1/4 cup of your 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! Such a great and quick starter.
QUICK FRENCH TOAST
You don't have to quit pancakes or french toast when you have diabetes. Simply make a couple of substitutions and a great diabetic breakfast recipe is soon on your table.
For this one whisk 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of orange juice and a dash of salt in the bowl. In to a separate flat pan you will need either 1/2 cup of crushed bran or corn flakes, or some crushed pecans. Or you can mix the two together for additional taste. Melt two or three tablespoons of margarine in a fry pan. Dip slices of whole wheat bread in to the egg mix then in your crushed dry mix and line the frying pan. Cook until brown for both sides. Serve with fresh peaches or blueberries like a topping. Who says cooking for diabetics needs to be boring?
