Breakfast can sometimes be a bit of a challenge when you have diabetes. After all, typical breakfast fare — bagels, toast, cereal, and so on — is high in carbs, and that can mean higher-than-desired blood sugars later on. And cereal can leave you feeling hungry an hour or two later because most cereals don’t have enough protein or fat to help you feel full. So, what’s a cereal lover to do?
