It is important to eat a diabetes-friendly diet, especially if we want to keep glucose levels under control. However, it can be challenging to stick to a diet, unless we have a proper plan. That is why we recommend this 7-day meal plan.

These are all recipes that won’t affect blood sugar levels and are extremely delicious. We can use them for lunch, breakfast, or dinner. Also, we should remember to count the carbohydrates and stick to the limit, as well as pay attention to the portions we eat.

The serving size matters a lot. So, we should balance our portions and eat meals that contain healthy fats and protein.

7-Day Meal Plan for Type 2 Diabetes

Day 1

Breakfast: French Toast Stuffed with Cream Cheese

Who doesn’t love French toast? It is tasty! But, it can be even better if we combine it with some scrambled egg whites. It’s even better to eat whole-grain toast to get all the fiber it contains.

Lunch: White Beans with Salmon Salad

The best source of omega-3 fatty acids is salmon. However, if we top it with salad, it can have an even more tasty and beneficial effect.

Also, we shouldn’t forget to serve the fish with some white beans.
