Christmas with diabetes – make it easy part 3!

How will you start your Christmas morning? Do you treat yourself to anything really special for the first meal of your day?

It’s worth thinking about – because it will set the tone for whether you will find yourself indulging in the inevitable nibbles, or whether you will be able to stave off cravings and resist temptation. The reality, as we’ve seen, is that your main Christmas meal isn’t the problem when thinking about blood sugar control. The problem often lies in the things you might pick at between meals – because these can really make for a carb-fest!

You can guard yourself against that with the right breakfast – one that is rich in proteins, which will keep you satisfied right up until your main Christmas meal. This is another opportunity to really spoil yourself too – make your breakfast a special meal too!

Here are some of my personal favourites:

breakfast 1 Smoked salmon with scrambled egg, and a little fresh dill




kippersKippers or smoked haddock topped with a soft poached egg






breakfast 2Eggs Florentine – soft poached eggs on a bed of lightly steamed spinach, topped with a dollop of Hollandaise sauce




breakfastNatural yoghurt with mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries and raspberries are my favourite) and mixed seeds (pumpkin, sesame, sunflower, hemp seeds)



Get your Christmas Day off to the healthiest and tastiest start!
