5 Breakfast Ideas for Diabetics




Did you Know that Kay’s was First Developed with Diabetics in Mind?

Well, if you read through the history of the company, you will see that the products were created to meet the needs of Type 2 Diabetics who were looking for low carb/high protein options for healthy meals and snacks. With that being said, Kay’s nutrition profile has impacted several other arenas as well such as sports nutrition and weight loss to offer a nutritional profile that is also suited for athletes and those who want to shed pounds.

Specifically, for diabetics though, Kay’s products are ideal for guiltless and nutritional sources of food anytime of the day, especially breakfast. With breakfast, you are actually “breaking a fast” from your overnight slumber. Therefore, Kay’s products are great for pairing with breakfast options because each serving packs at about 12 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber at only 120 calories per serving.

Here are Some Ideas to Make Breakfast Tasty & Satisfying

BREAKFAST SHAKE

A breakfast shake is a great option to start the day. Take one cup of nonfat plain yogurt and add half a cup of fruit such as blueberries or strawberries, half a cup of ice and blend until smooth. Pair your shake with Kay’s Honey Almond Cookie Bites (or blend them right in!) and you will feel satisfied.

CEREAL & FRUIT

Good old-fashion cereal is ideal if you enjoy a cold breakfast. One serving of Kay’s cereal has 12 gm of protein and only 4 gm of carbs. Pair with half cup of fruit and low-fat milk of choice and you have few carbs and a great source of protein.

HOT OMELETTE

If you crave a hot breakfast, coat a non-stick pan with cooking spray and sauté spinach and/or any low-carb vegetable. Add a well-beaten egg on top of the cooked veggies and scramble. Sprinkle with some grated cheese (optional). Pair the omelet with a serving of Kay’s savory options or have a Kay’s sweet treat with a cup of tea or coffee.

COTTAGE CHEESE & FRUIT

Another great way to start the day is with cottage cheese. Portion out ½ cup of cottage cheese and mix in ½ of fruit such as pineapple, raspberries, blueberries or strawberries. Add a bag of Kay’s vanilla cookie bites on the side to enjoy a protein rich breakfast.

YOGURT PARFAIT

A yogurt parfait is another breakfast option that can be as satisfying as a dessert. Use 1 Cup of your favorite nonfat Greek Yogurt, 1 Cup of Kay’s French Vanilla Cereal, and 1/2 Cup of Fruit.

These are just a few ideas to make breakfast satisfying and, most of all, filling. The best way to control your intake of sugars/carbohydrates is to indulge in protein-packed options. Kay’s products are the perfect choice for savory and sweet sources of protein while keeping the fat and carb count low. The additional benefit of Kay’s products is that they all have a good amount of fiber as well. Greet each day with protein, fiber and great taste while keeping your sugar low and your diabetes in check.
