The 4 Worst Breakfast Foods for Diabetics

4. Processed Breakfast Cereals
Many store-bought kinds of cereal are highly processed containing alarming levels of refined carbohydrate, added sugar, and nasty artificial chemicals.

So, if you do eat cereal in the morning, either make your own or go for a whole grain option without added sugar.

3. Protein Bars
In a similar way to refined breakfast cereals, most protein bars can be categorized as processed food.

But unless they're recommended by your doctor, it's far better to get your sustenance from real food.

2. Sausage, Bacon, and other meat
So while meat doesn’t add extra carbohydrates to your breakfast, it’s not the healthiest option for diabetics.

Sausage and bacon in particular are considered high in saturated fat which is known to raise cholesterol levels and aggravate diabetes.

1. Fruit Juices
Fruit juice may seem like a delicious and healthy option with your breakfast, however, when fruits are juiced, the fiber is removed, leaving a fast-absorbing sugar hit.

And when that extra glucose enters the bloodstream, it can lead to hyperglycemia.

The 5 Best Breakfast Options for Diabetics

5. Smoothies
If you tend to skip breakfast, a low-carb smoothie can be a good option.

A low-carb smoothie can be made of protein through yogurt or added plant powder, healthy fat with nuts, seeds, or avocado, and fiber with berries and leafy greens.

4. Eggs
Eggs are a delicious and healthy breakfast choice for people with diabetes.
Eggs are a rich source of protein, nutrients such as choline and biotin, and omega 3s.
These components support long-term blood glucose control.

3. Avocado Toast
While multigrain breads are filled with fiber, avocados offer a healthy dose of good fat.
Pairing both together creates a nourishing and blood-balancing breakfast option.

2. Oatmeal
Oats are a gluten-free whole grain that contains a large number of vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants.
So when you eat rolled or steel-cut oats, you can get the full nourishment of these important nutrients.

1. Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are a blood glucose-friendly breakfast option. When soaked, the chia seeds expand into a gooey matter that delivers a high amount of soluble fibers and omega-3 fatty acids.
These components significantly reduce insulin resistance and improve blood sugar control.
