For many people a cup of coffee is associated with the beginning of the day. Not very long ago, people used to think that coffee is not beneficial for their health, but recent studies suggest that there is a number of chemicals contained in coffee that can actually improve your well-being and even reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

However, if you already have diabetes, you can’t just grab any cup of coffee on your way to work without being conscious of what that aromatic liquid contains besides caffeine. Some people dedicate time to brew their coffee at home every morning. It’s the easiest way to control the content of your coffee cup. For those, who are not using this option, fast food chains often become the major providers of their morning cup of Joe.

Almost all fast food joints have a selection of different kinds of coffee on their menus, featuring a variety of recipes and flavors. When you are picking one out, make sure to check for calories and sugar content in your drink. Major fast food restaurants like those listed below have this information available, helping people with diabetes to make not only a delicious, but also a safe selection.

Panera Bread for People with Diabetes - Everything You Need to Know!

Panera Bread is all about carbohydrates, with delicious loaves of bread, baguettes, sandwiches, and pastries making up a big part of the menu. It could be difficult for a person with diabetes to enjoy something at this popular chain while also watching their carb count and blood sugar. The good news is that there are ways to enjoy a trip to Panera Bread with your friends and family, even if you have diabetes. The portions here are large, as with many other fast food establishments, but unlike many others, you have the option of getting a half-size portion of a salad, soup, or sandwich. This means that it's easier to stay within your carb calls when navigating through the menu at Panera Bread.

McDonald's For People with Diabetes - Everything You Need to Know!

Fast food doesn't necessarily need to be off-limits if you have diabetes, but it's essential to know what to order to keep your blood sugar levels in check. Most fast-food joints typically get a bad rep for serving foods that are high in carbs, fat, and sugar, but this doesn't mean that a trip to McDonald's should be completely off-limits if you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Let's not forget that fast food does come with some benefits such as consistent quality wherever you go and convenience. Sometimes, fast food is the only option available if you're stuck in an airport or on a road trip, so read on to find out what you can eat at McDonald's if you have diabetes.

Sonic Menu for People With Diabetes - Everything You Need To Know!

Just like with many other fast-food restaurants, there are not many low-carb options at Sonic, but the good news is that people with diabetes can still enjoy some of the items on their menu if they happen to be at Sonic with their family and friends.

Dunkin' Donuts for People with Diabetes - Everything You Need to Know!

For people who don't live with diabetes, Dunkin' Donuts can be a welcomed treat. While the treats at the popular donut joint are not the healthiest choices, eating them from time to time is not the end of the world. On the other hand, if you have diabetes, too many slip-ups can have potentially life-threatening consequences. When you live with type I or type II diabetes, you need to monitor your blood sugar levels at all times to avoid a spike that can have serious consequences.
