How to Build a Balanced Breakfast
By Marsha McCulloch, R.D., L.D.
Need help squeezing in the most important meal of the day? Breakfast is a breeze with these simple tips on how to make a balanced on-the-go meal, along with easy, satisfying, and diabetes-friendly breakfast ideas.

 
The Importance of Breakfast for People with Diabetes
Eating a healthful breakfast can help control blood glucose, hunger, and weight. Breakfast is a chance to fill up on healthful fuel for the day’s activities and fit in some important food groups.

Get more mileage out of your breakfast by including satisfying fiber from whole grains and fruit and protein from low-fat dairy products and other lean protein sources. Need ideas? This slideshow will give you the basics on how to put a simple breakfast together in a snap, along with meal ideas that are already done for you — right down to the nutrition information. If you’re not hungry in the morning, start with a partial meal and build up.

 
Build a Balanced Breakfast
When compiling your first meal of the day, remember this simple formula:

Whole grain + dairy/protein + fruit = healthy breakfast

Include whole grains for the starch portion of your meal. This will be your main carbohydrate source. The dairy/protein digests more slowly than carbohydrate, helping you feel satisfied. And fruit is rich in essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber — plus it’s a healthy carbohydrate source.

Each of the following breakfasts has about 45 grams of carbohydrate and is a good source of fiber and protein. BONUS! They’re all easily portable if you’re on the go……
