Here you will see biggest diabetes breakfast mistakes you’re probably making and you didn’t know you were doing it. Don’t make these breakfast mistakes to keep your blood sugar stable.

1. SKIPPING PROTEIN.
When you eat carbohydrates alone, they are digested quickly causing spikes in your blood sugar levels. When paired with a protein, they bind together and take longer to digest and burn up.
If you have a bowl of cereal and toast, eat an egg with it.
Eat Fruit with Yogurt.
Have Pancakes with Sausage.
If you are In a hurry, Just add Peanut Butter to your toast!

2. SMOOTHIES ON THE RUN.
Smoothies make you feel great! No doubt a good smoothie gives you a rush to get you going, but turns out its mostly a sugar rush.
Add a scoop of protein powder to slow the burn.
Drink a smoothie and nibble a hardboiled egg.
Skip the smoothie and have a bowl of oatmeal with some bacon!

3. NOT EATING BREAKFAST.
You may have been fine without breakfast before diabetes, but after you are diagnosed you may not be anymore. People who skip breakfast actually have higher blood sugars during the day.
Grab a granola bar that is high in protein and a glass of milk.
Have Cheese and crackers.
Eat Yogurt and granola.
Hard boiled eggs will travel most anywhere.
Even a ham and cheese sandwich will do!

4. FAT FREE IS NOT ALWAYS BEST.
Fat-free is often higher in calories. Second, fat helps slow the burn of carbohydrates just like protein. If you choose fat-free, eat it in moderation and include some healthy fats in your diet each week.
Stick to low-fat items such as; low-fat cheese, low-fat yogurt, and low-fat ice cream.
Have a few strips of bacon once or twice a week.
Use regular butter on your toast instead of margarine.

5. EARLY MORNING INDULGENCE.
It’s Easter and you’ve been invited to a breakfast buffet. You walk into the dining room and it’s filled with goodies. There is a fruit station, make your own waffles, a carving station, and pastries galore. You’re attracted by the enticing ice sculptures and cute décor. You eat until you can barely walk. This is not good for your blood sugar levels.
Try to avoid the pastry station.
Make healthy choices of foods you normally eat for breakfast such as oatmeal, eggs, and bacon.
Allow yourself one treat for dessert.
Make sure you include your protein.

Remember to consult your physician before doing any kind of experimentation.
This is a slow process that will show results after some time has passed and you have kept consistency.
Good Luck.
