1. Breakfast:
  • Oatmeal: Opt for plain, steel-cut oats or old-fashioned oats with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a handful of berries. The fiber in oats helps stabilize blood sugar.
  • Greek Yogurt Parfait: Layer Greek yogurt with berries, nuts, and a drizzle of honey for a protein-rich and satisfying breakfast.
  • Egg Scramble: Scramble eggs with spinach, tomatoes, and a touch of feta cheese for a protein-packed breakfast that provides lasting energy.
2. Lunch:
  • Grilled Chicken Salad: Load up on leafy greens, veggies, and grilled chicken breast. Top with a vinaigrette dressing for a low-carb, high-protein meal.
  • Quinoa Bowl: Mix cooked quinoa with roasted vegetables, chickpeas, and a tahini dressing for a fiber-rich, balanced lunch.
  • Veggie Wrap: Wrap hummus, avocado, and a variety of veggies in a whole-grain tortilla for a satisfying, fiber-packed option.
3. Snacks:
  • Apple with Peanut Butter: The combination of fiber in apples and healthy fats in peanut butter can keep blood sugar steady.
  • Cottage Cheese and Berries: Cottage cheese provides protein, while berries offer natural sweetness and fiber.
  • Carrot Sticks with Hummus: Carrots are low in carbs and pair well with protein-rich hummus.
4. Dinner:
  • Baked Salmon: Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and protein. Serve with steamed broccoli and quinoa for a balanced meal.
  • Stir-Fry: Use lean protein like tofu or chicken with plenty of non-starchy vegetables in a homemade stir-fry sauce. Serve over brown rice or cauliflower rice.
  • Zucchini Noodles: Swap regular pasta with zucchini noodles (zoodles) and top with a tomato-based sauce and lean ground turkey or lentil-based meatballs.
5. Dessert (in moderation):
  • Dark Chocolate: A small piece of dark chocolate (70% cocoa or higher) can satisfy sweet cravings without causing a significant spike in blood sugar.
  • Yogurt with Berries: Choose plain Greek yogurt with fresh berries and a drizzle of honey for a lower-sugar dessert option.
General Tips:
  • Portion Control: Pay attention to portion sizes to avoid overeating, which can impact blood sugar levels.
  • Fiber: Incorporate high-fiber foods like whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits into your meals.
  • Protein: Include lean protein sources like poultry, fish, tofu, and beans to help stabilize blood sugar.
  • Healthy Fats: Incorporate sources of healthy fats like avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil for satiety and balanced energy.

Remember that individual responses to food can vary, so it's essential to monitor your blood sugar levels regularly and work with a healthcare professional to create a plan that suits your specific needs and lifestyle.
