5 easy breakfasts that are better than cereal

Author: Dr. Michelle Durkin on 9 November 2021

Did you know that eating cereal for breakfast sets your blood sugar up for a roller coaster for the rest of the day? And that this rollercoaster cannot be re-set until you sleep?

One of the most important ways to reduce inflammation, improve your energy, improve your circulation, balance your mood, improve your waistline, control cravings, and slow down the aging process is to maintain excellent blood sugar control.

So here are 5 ways you can ditch the cereal and get your blood sugar off the rollercoaster.

1. Plantain and Apple Fritters

2. Grain Free Granola

3. Breakfast Smoothie

4. Egg Muffins

5. Real Food Pancakes

You can find all the recipes for these suggestions in my App, along with other goodies that I only share there.
