Panera Bread Greek yogurt with mixed berries parfait

Passing up Panera’s breakfast sandwiches won’t be easy, but luckily, you still have a few choices. For instance, you can get their Greek Yogurt with Mixed Berries Parfait, which is by far the healthiest choice for those who suffer from diabetes.

Trust me; it’s not the typical Greek yogurt we’re used to! It has honey, maple butter pecan granola with not just any oats but whole grain oats, fresh strawberries, and a ton of blueberries. All these tasty ingredients only pack 240 calories, 27 g of carbs, and 15 g of protein. Besides, this kind of breakfast is ideal for your heart health because it provides 2 g of fiber from oats and berries.

How to choose your breakfast meals when you have diabetes

  • If you want a tasty breakfast, go with wraps and English muffins because they have only half the carbs of the typical bagels and muffins.
  • Add a source of lean protein to prevent blood sugar spikes and manage your cravings throughout the day.
  • Avoid fried foods, even if they appear on the menu as “crispy” or even “breaded.”
  • Order anything that you can get with fresh fruits.
  • Anytime you get the chance, go for whole grains.
  • Count carbohydrates because some foods might have more than you think.
  • If you’re getting sweetened beverages, drink a ton of water.
