Prediabetes-Friendly Breakfast - Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash:
I bet when you decided to make changes to your health you thought you'd never see a breakfast hash again. Well, I'm here to tell you that's not the case! This breakfast hash has everything we know and love about a traditional hash but it won't worsen your prediabetes. The key here is that it includes a smaller portion of potatoes and it's loaded with veggies!
Prediabetes-Friendly Breakfast - Veggie Fontina Frittata:
The beauty of a fritatta is that you can really personalize it to your preferences. You're able to fill them with any vegetables or cheeses you like, so it never has to be the same! Frittatas are basically an omelet, but more functional for anyone with a packed schedule. Which, let's be honest, is most of us. Pop this frittata in the oven ahead of time and cut off pieces as a to-go breakfast option throughout the week!
Prediabetes-Friendly Breakfast - Savory Oatmeal
Savory oatmeal is just like your run-of-the-mill traditional oatmeal except, well... savory! For all of the oatmeal lovers out there, you have to add this savory oats recipe to your list. Savory oats basically use steel cut oats as a base, and top them with other breakfast favorites such as scrambled eggs, veggies, scallions and of cheese! I like to think of savory oats as a breakfast risotto, if you will. Try it out and let us know what you think!
Prediabetes-Friendly Breakfast - Shakshuka
Yep, you read that right- Shakshuka! Try to say that three times fast. Shakshuka is a traditional Mediterranean dish of eggs poached in a tomato sauce filled with veggies. Shakshuka is one of our favorite recipes to make as a fun weekend dish or you can make it in advance and dish it out for the week days. Either way, add whatever veggies you like to make it your own!
Prediabetes-Friendly Breakfast - Tempeh Scramble
For anyone who is vegan and also looking for prediabetes-friendly recipes, this ones for you! This tempeh scramble has everything a traditional scramble has...except the eggs of course. Just like most of the recipes on this list, it's extremely customizeable! Add whatever veggies you like and for a cheesy flavor you can even add a sprinkle of nutritional yeast. This one is sure to satisfy those of you with a few dietary restrictions!
