Balanced breakfast meals often include eggs. And there is a good explanation for that. Eggs are known to be one of the most wholesome foods around. Eggs are contain protein, vitamins, minerals and are free of carbohydrates. They are an amazing option whether you are looking for a low-calorie breakfast meal, or meal for any time of the day.

Eggs and green vegetables provide nutrients that can aid lower the risk of disease, they stimulate a greater feeling of overall well-being, and with no sugars or carbohydrates, it’s also an ideal meal to add to a diabetic meal plan.

Eggs are a nice low-calorie breakfast meal.

Asparagus and spinach are nutrient-packed vegetables; both the Asparagus and Spinach contain fiber that helps your digestion. These vegetables stabilise your blood sugar levels and lower the risk of colon cancer and constipation.

Besides, these high-nutrient vegetables contain potassium that helps regulate blood pressure and plays a vital role in muscle contraction and building. These vegetables are also high in Vitamins A and C which are great for your eyesight as well as the production of collagen, which provides elasticity to your skin and strengthens the connective tissues.

Eggs: The Perfect Low-Calorie Breakfast Option

Eggs are one of the most complete food sources, helping to promote cellular activity.

Getting enough of high-quality protein from eggs and lots of vitamins and minerals from vegetables such as spinach and asparagus can constitute a meal that meets your daily nutrient requirement and as we have already mentioned makes a great low-calorie breakfast meal.

This egg recipe is a good option, and not just because it is low calorie and a suitable diabetic breakfast but because it tastes good too!

Many people can be a little scared of poaching eggs but it is a great way to eat these little gems without having to add any additional fat like you do when you fry or scramble your eggs. So it actually is one of the healthiest ways to cook an egg.

The key for a healthy low-calorie breakfast is to turn your dull poached eggs into a flavor-packed meal by adding some low-calorie veggies and herbs and spices.

You could even turn it into a complete meal by adding a slice of toast.

Below is an easy diabetic-friendly low-calorie breakfast recipe for you to try.
