Being a type one diabetic is always a day-to-day struggle. Each day revolves around constant carb counting. One of the most difficult food items to give up is definitely bread (I do love my bread). That is until I came across Pepperidge Farm Light Style Bread – ONLY 8g PER SLICE! That is literally half the amount of carbs of a regular slice of wheat bread.
Breakfast is also a difficult meal to eat for diabetics. With the exception of eggs, a ton of breakfast foods are loaded with carbs, especially one of my favorites, french toast. Here is my diabetic version with only 21grams of carbohydrates:
- 2 Slices Pepperidge Farm Light Style Bread (I use Soft Wheat)
- 1 egg
- 1tsp of cinnamon (According to preliminary research, up to a teaspoon of cinnamon with food can reduce blood sugar levels.) Source: WebMD
- 1tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup Sugar-Free Vermont Maple syrup (only 5 grams of carbs per serving!)
Spray a frying pan with cooking spray. Mix the egg, cinnamon and vanilla in a dish. Soak the 2 slices of bread in the mixture. Place the bread onto the frying pan and cook each side evenly on medium heat. Top with syrup and blueberries (optional).
