Make Whole Grains for Breakfast

Updated on October 8, 2011

Whole Grains for Diabetics

Whole grains are an ideal breakfast for diabetic and pre-diabetic people.

Breakfast usually contains some common items like white bread, doughnuts, croissants, pancakes...etc of the the sugar laden food, which you have been told to give up, and probably you were wondering for a suitable breakfast, not any more.

Now you can make your breakfast the meal that lowers your blood sugar, together with micro nutrients like magnesium that help you body better deals with sugar.

Taking whole grains in your breakfast loads your body with magnesium which was proven to reduce the risk for diabetes type-2, as the Harvard's Nurses Health study published in Diabetes Care revealed. More importantly, diabetics are mostly deficient in magnesium.

A significant blood pressure reduction was noted in diabetic patients with hypertension, after dietary sodium was replaced with potassium and magnesium. With this breakfast, your intake of magnesium is close to 1/4 the amount recommended as DV ( Daily Value of intake).

Whole Grain Magnesium and Diabetes

This breakfast gathers the richest magnesium containing nutrients, and it is ideal for you, if you are diabetic, pre-diabetic or if you have a family history of diabetes, and here is the recipe:

1 cup White Soft Wheat Seeds

50 g Nuts,dry roasted,non-salted

1/2 lb Low fat Milk

50 g Bee Honey ( Honey is the best sweetener for you after finally research found that artificial sweeteners raise blood sugar the same way sugar does)

1-2 Tablespoon Grated coconut

1 g Vanilla extract

Method :

1- Wash the wheat seeds, and soak it overnight to allow the surrounding sheath to peel off.

2- On the second day, boil the wheat and add hot water every time the water evaporates, until the seeds are as soft as can be eaten.

3- Boil the milk and add it to the hot seeds and allow the mixture to boil again.

4- Add the crushed nuts and the grated coconut and mix.

5- Add vanilla extract for flavor.

6- When serving, add honey to sweeten( normally 2-3 teaspoons to each serving but you can make your preference).

7- For tasty serving, you can add 10 g butter to every serving, but again
if you prefer healthier food do not add it.

8- You can adjust additives to match your taste.

These amounts are sufficient for 6 servings.
