Chicken eggs are a traditional breakfast staple in many cultures. They simply never get old. – There are so many ways you can cook eggs to start your day on the right foot! Plus, unless you complement them with a lot of carbs, eggs are considered suitable for people with diabetes by the ADA (The American Diabetes Association).

Eggs have a low glycemic index, which means they have practically no effect on a person’s blood sugar levels. That makes eggs very diabetes-friendly. In fact, diabetics can even benefit from eating eggs. – According to a study, if you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes and eat eggs regularly (even one egg a day!), you may improve your fasting blood glucose levels and, in case of prediabetes, even reduce your risk of getting diabetes.

Because eggs are high in proteins and nutrients and low in calories, they make you feel more full, helping you maintain a healthy weight, which is highly important for people with diabetes. In addition to being a good source of protein, which is mostly present in the albumen (egg white), the egg yolk provides you vitamins A, B-12, D, E, and K, minerals, such as iron, zinc, and copper, and healthy fats and antioxidants.

Some people may see disadvantage in that eggs contain a significant amount of cholesterol, but a study shows that cholesterol in food has little effect on raising overall cholesterol levels in the body.

So, what egg dishes are the best for people with diabetes?

The healthiest ways to enjoy your eggs is to have them boiled, poached, or in the form of an omelet. The latter way gives you the most space for creativity, since you can treat your taste buds with different combinations of healthy ingredients, ranging from vegetables like tomatoes, onions, and peppers, to cheeses and meats such as chicken, turkey, and beef.

Although we are sure you will be able to come up with and find a plenty of delicious omelet recipes, we’d like to share a few of our favorite ones with you.
