There's good reason to eat your morning meal. Breakfast eaters have a decreased risk of type 2 diabetes. Start your day with oatmeal. Oats contain beta-glucan, a fiber shown to improve blood glucose control. This carb-smart formula provides at least 3 grams of fiber and fewer than 30 grams of carbs per serving.
Cook oats either on the stovetop or in a microwave according to individual package instructions.
For more protein, add 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon milk to stovetop-cooked oats about 3 minutes before the end of cooking. Cook, stirring frequently, until egg is cooked through.
Apple Pie Oatmeal: Sliced apples, chopped pecans, maple syrup, and apple pie spice.
