Type 2 Warrior Breakfast

I have discovered that the best breakfast I can eat in the morning is a very simple one. It starts with Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats, Berries (local when in season), a banana and Bear Naked Fruit and Nut Granola.

I find a little time on the weekend to prepare enough oatmeal for the whole week. It’s pretty easy as I boil 4 cups of water, add a little salt, and bring to boil. I then add two cups of rolled oats and simmer for 10 minutes. I let the oatmeal sit for another 2 minutes and distribute to plastic container and place in fridge.

I like to get up early (3:30 AM) to check email and finances with a cup of coffee. Around 4:30 AM I am on the treadmill trying to burn off 300 calories. It’s then time for a shower and eat this healthy breakfast before heading out to work. What I have learned is that typically I don’t feel any hunger until lunchtime. Sometimes when I do feel hungry, I eat an apple and have a cup of green tea. Between the workout and the healthy breakfast my energy levels are also sustained throughout the course of the morning.

And yes, since I have been doing this each day my blood sugar has been coming down, getting closer and closer to a non-diabetic range.

  1. Those are two products I like, too, Bob’s Mill anything and Bear Naked granola. The pumpkin flavor was sooo good. And your banana and berries mixed in makes it all look yummy and for sure filling.

    I eat something similar with a partial tsp of Amla powder. Great science that Amla controls blood sugar. I ordered several sealed packages in August. If you would like to try some I would be happy to share a sealed package.

  4. Crikey. Here in the UK we just make our porridge with boiling water and rolled oats adding a cut up banana as a treat. Having said that we do occasionally splurge and add a few cut up dried apricots.
