Breakfast recipes for stable glucose (sweet & savory)

Hello Inside Breakfast & Women's Health

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

We are sure you have heard this before. But why? 

Simply put, if you bring your blood glucose levels out of control in the morning, you may jump onto the blood glucose roller coaster before even noticing it. And it will be hard to get off during the day. So if you cause your blood glucose levels to spike in the morning, you might feel dizzier, less focused, hungrier, and tired throughout the day. But worry not, we’ve got you covered. Whether you are more of a sweet kind of person or if you prefer a savory breakfast,  we’ve collected the best glucose-stable recipes for your breakfast. 

For the sweet tooth among you:
