Layer Greek yogurt (low in carbohydrates and high in protein) with fresh berries (low glycemic index fruits) and a sprinkle of nuts or seeds for added texture and healthy fats.
Opt for steel-cut oats or rolled oats (not instant) as they have a lower glycemic index. Top with chopped nuts like almonds or walnuts and some berries for added fiber and antioxidants.
Scramble eggs with colorful vegetables like spinach, bell peppers, and tomatoes. Eggs are an excellent source of protein and healthy fats, while the veggies provide essential nutrients and fiber.
Mash avocado on whole-grain or sprouted grain toast. Avocado is rich in monounsaturated fats, which can help improve insulin sensitivity. Add some sliced tomatoes or a sprinkle of chia seeds for extra nutrition.
Mix chia seeds with unsweetened almond milk (or any other low-carb milk alternative) and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, top with a few berries or chopped nuts.
Blend together a low-sugar fruit like berries or half a banana with unsweetened almond milk, spinach or kale, and a scoop of protein powder (preferably plant-based).
Cottage cheese is a good source of protein with a low glycemic index. Sprinkle some cinnamon (which may help improve insulin sensitivity) and add a handful of berries.
Whisk together eggs and add chopped vegetables like zucchini, onions, and mushrooms. Bake in the oven until set and golden. Frittatas are a great make-ahead option that you can slice and reheat throughout the week.
