It comes as no surprise that oats are good sources of carbs. In fact, 100 grams of raw oats provide 66.3 grams of carbs, 10.6 grams of fiber and 0 grams of sugar—that’s why oatmeal should be your favorite breakfast meal idea.
Oats also offer a wide range of vitamins and minerals such as iron, selenium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, copper and vitamin B1. Plus, it has been shown that oat consumption can lower blood pressure and minimize the risk of type 2 diabetes.
2. Shredded Wheat
Although most cereals tend to contain unhealthy ingredients, shredded wheat is actually a good cereal option. It’s a great source of fiber and since shredded wheat is made from natural whole grain wheat, you shouldn’t worry about trans fats.
The best part when it comes to shredded wheat? People with diabetes can consume it too! Plus, you can eat them whenever you want: breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you name it. As a pro tip, we recommend you adding some walnuts and a handful of blueberries to reap even more benefits.
