If you weren’t aware, breakfast should be the largest meal of the day. Some principles related to eating breakfast are the following:

  1. Have 2-3 fresh fruits with your breakfast (apple, banana, grapefruit, grapes, berries, melons)
    (For diabetics, eat at least 2 fresh fruits daily, only 1 being a sweet fruit such as mango, papaya, dates, banana, melon, or pear.)
  2. Choose 1-2 whole grains (home-made granola, brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, baked cereals, rice pudding, etc.)
    (For diabetics, limit the sugar or honey that you add to your grains.)
  3. Eat sparingly of Nuts and Seeds (almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, nut milk, nut butter, flax/linseed, nut gravy, coconut, etc.)
  4. You can add in miscellaneous items, such as dried fruit, soy milk, rice milk, fruit toppings, spreads, corn butter, scrambled tofu, beans, etc.)
    (For diabetics, count the dried fruits as part of your daily fruit allowance, and keep an eye on the sugar content in your soy/rice milks. If you make fruit spreads, make sure you make it with the whole fruit and use it sparingly.)

Variety is a good thing, so change things around from time to time so that you don’t have the same meal over and over again.
