Hello, I am Ty Mason of thediabetescouncil.com,
researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I want to give you some quick breakfast
ideas. After you watch the video today, I invite you check out the description box for
my new ebook. This is one of the most comprehensive diabetes meal planning book you can find.
It contains diabetes friendly meals/recipes, recipes for different goals such as 800-1800
calories per day meal plan, diabetes meal planning tips and tricks. There are also tons
of diabetes friendly recipes for everyone! Breakfast is, in my opinion, the most important
meal of the day. I personally feel we don’t take the time we should to prepare and eat
a good breakfast to get our day off on the right foot.
I know, I know, TIME! So while I do not advocate you do this every day, I am going to give
you 7 quick and easy breakfast recipes that will be good for your diabetes meal planning.
Again, I do NOT advocate you eat these type breakfasts every day, but I do feel eating
something is better than nothing at all. With that said, here are my 7 quick and easy
breakfast ideas. Ty Mason TriFecta SuperFood Breakfast.
My best tip for this video would be what I call a Ty Mason TriFecta SuperFood Breakfast.
It is easy and combines 3 of my diabetes superfoods. It is so simple, you can make it in seconds
or have it in the fridge ready to go if you are running really late.
To a bowl of greek yogurt, add walnuts and strawberries. It is that simple. But what
a power packed breakfast this is. You get everything you need to get a great start to
your day and it will not affect your blood sugar a great deal at all. Some may put a
little sucralose in the yogurt, it is a bit tangy, but many love it just as it is. Fruit Smoothie
I know in my breakfast mistakes video I said breakfasts should not be in liquid form. But
remember, this is an exception for those days that you must get out of the house quickly
and I would rather you drink your breakfast than go out without anything at all. Plus,
this has added convenience in that you can truly take this one with you and not have
to worry a great deal about getting stains on your tie or dress.
As you know, I am an advocate of keeping some type of frozen fruit in your freezer just
in case you run out of fresh fruit. To me, fresh fruit should be included in any meal
if at all possible. Well, this is a fresh fruit breakfast.
It really doesn’t matter what you add to this smoothie as long as it is fruit. I personally
like the frozen fruit for a smoothie because it stays colder longer and remains a little
thicker. Combine in a blender 3 or 4 ice cubes, one
cup of greek yogurt (or 2% milk) a half cup of frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries,
peaches, etc) and a handful of nuts (walnuts, almonds, etc). Blend until smooth and you
have a delicious breakfast ready to drink on the way to work. EGGS AND BACON
I know, I said quick and easy. Hey, this one really is quick and easy. At almost any grocery
store these days you can buy bacon that is already cooked. It is not that bad at all
actually. You throw it in the microwave for about 10 seconds per slice (read your package
directions) and voila! You have bacon. As for the eggs, boil a few up and keep them
in the fridge. They truly are a great snack for any time, but for a quick breakfast you
can’t beat it. Throw some bread in the toaster, have the coffee brewing and you have breakfast
in just a minute or 2. If you have to eat it on the go, slice the
egg in thin sliced, but it on the toast with the bacon and eat it as a sandwich on your
way to work. It really is a great breakfast. If you are going to have it as a sandwich,
take 30 extra seconds and add a slice of cheese to it and stick in the microwave to melt the
cheese and heat up the egg. YUMMY! FRUIT BOWL
Easiest breakfast ever. Cut some fruit up the night before if you know you are going
to sleep in! Add some strawberries, blueberries, peaches, watermelon, apples, pears, whatever
fruit you like. Leave this in a bowl overnight and those juices will mingle and marinate
that fruit, I get hungry just thinking about it.
FRUIT AND WAFFLE Yes, you read that right. WAFFLE! Look, the
GL of an Aunt Jemima frozen waffle is 10. That is a low GL food. I know, the GI is high,
but I am a strong proponent of the GL of a food. It tells you exactly how a food is going
to affect your blood sugar and a GL of 10 is low.
Here is my favorite way to eat a waffle. Of course, toast the waffle. DUH!
But in a saucepan, add some fruit, whatever you like with a little splash of orange juice
and a couple tablespoons of sucralose. Bring that up to a boil, then simmer for a just
a couple of minutes. You won’t believe how good that is over the waffle. Add a glass
of milk and you think you will be heading off to school than to work. Childhood memories! OATS (OATMEAL)
This is an amazing breakfast, especially on those cold mornings. You can get instant oatmeal
if you’d like, but very careful of the ingredients. Many instant oatmeals have lots of sugar.
You can make your own oatmeal by using minute oats and adding whatever you like to it.
Cook up some oats, add in sucralose, milk, a sliced up apple and cinnamon, that is good
stuff. Add fruit or whatever you’d like. It’s quick, easy and actually very good
for you! COTTAGE CHEESE AND FRUIT
Portion out ½ cup of cottage cheese and mix in ½ cup frozen peaches. If you don’t like
peaches, try another fruit like pineapple, raspberries, blueberries or even diced tomatoes.
Add a small handful of nuts and you are ready to go!
This can also be made the night before and stored in the fridge.
Well, there you have it! My Top 7 quick and easy breakfast ideas for those with diabetes.
