As you see, I carefully balance protein and carbs in order to control my blood sugar.  It is actually easy to use everyday foods, the ones we are familiar with, to do this.

One of my favorite breakfasts is French Toast.  The egg in the recipe slows down the blood sugar spike from the bread, and I always serve it with whey protein cocoa to make protein grams equal to carb grams.  Here is the recipe:

French Toast

1 egg Egg, whole, raw, fresh
1 slice Pepperidge Farm Oatmeal Bread
1 tbs Butter, with salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon, ground
1 tsp Honey, strained or extracted

Soak bread in beaten egg. Melt butter in pan. Add soaked bread and sprinkle with cinnamon. Turn when first side is browned. Spread honey on cooked toast.

Serve with whey protein cocoa to make protein gm > carb gms - the secret to blood sugar control!
