Chia Pudding - Cereal Alternative for Type 2 Diabetes

Updated: Jul 19, 2021

Breakfast cereal can be nutritious if it is whole grain and low in added sugar, but can still contain almost 50 grams of carbohydrate per serving.

If cereal surpasses your personal carb needs at breakfast time, and you'd like an easy (and tasty) alternative...

Here you go!

This breakfast packs in a nutritious 12 grams of fiber, 8 grams of protein, 28 grams of total carbohydrate, 12 grams of unsaturated fat, and 250 calories in a really satisfying serving size, making it a blood sugar stabilizing breakfast that will keep you full.

Better yet - it takes 2 minutes to prep before bed, so your breakfast is a no-brainer.

Chia Pudding with Fruit and Nuts

Here's what you need

2 Tbsp chia seeds

1/2 C almond milk (or other preferred milk)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp maple syrup

1/2 C diced apple

2 Tbsp pecans

Here's how you make it

Combine chia seeds, milk, cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla in a bowl. Mix well and place the bowl in the refrigerator with a lid for 8 hours to 3 days. (HINT: same method as overnight oats)

When you're ready to eat, stir the chis pudding and add diced apples and pecans.
