Mornings


#1

Mornings are the worst for having diabetes. Because I’m a runner and my schedule’s pretty much non stop until the end of the day, I eat a lot at night. That’s not to say I skip meals or anything like that but I can’t seem to curb my carb cravings. I love cereal, and this is my brain food. But when I eat it at night, it raises my blood sugar level, and I"m usually high in the mornings.

Which makes it almost impossible to get up.

Are there any cereals that are yummy and good for the glycemic index? I want something I can eat guiltlessly and still wake up in the morning without feeling groggy.

I’ve found the Kashi brand of cereal great for Diabetics. It has a nice balance of protein (that all important ingredient that helps build muscle, slow glucose digestion, etc.), carbs, and fiber. And they even taste good.
