If you like breakfast, then you’ll love these 5 delicious and nutritious foods to help keep your blood sugar balanced throughout the day.

1) Whey protein may not sound like a breakfast food, but this powder can be added to a healthy morning smoothie or other drinks to slow digestion and aid weight loss. One standard serving of whey protein powder provides around 20 grams of blood sugar-stabilizing protein, plus a range amino acids, which provide building blocks for our hormones and other structural components of the body.

2) Flaxseeds can be used to create a fiber-rich egg alternative, or simply added to a morning smoothie. Flaxseeds are an excellent source of ALPHA-LINOLENIC ACID, which has been shown to lower harmful LDL cholesterol. Plus, flaxseeds are rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber, and they supply an impressive 2 grams of fiber per tablespoon.

3) Eggs may be high in cholesterol, but they are also low in calories and high in heart-healthy omega-3 fats, plus post-meal glucose-stabilizing protein. A recent study found that participants who consumed one large egg per day had a reduction of fasting blood sugar by 4.4%, along with improved insulin sensitivity, in comparison to the control group who did not eat eggs.

4) Raspberries are low in carbohydrates and calories but rich in fiber and disease-fighting micronutrients, including vitamin C, potassium, beta-carotene, and quercetin. Quercetin is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant which has been shown aid the health of the liver and the pancreas, and it’s also been shown to lower fasting blood glucose.

5) Greek yogurt is packed full of protein and gut-aiding probiotics, and it’s low on the glycemic index, which means that it has a minimal impact on post-meal blood sugar. Studies show Greek yogurt can work to improve insulin sensitivity, lower LDL cholesterol while improving levels of heart-healthy HDL cholesterol, and even lower blood pressure.
