The Three Minute Diabetes Breakfast That Changes Lives

The Three Minute Diabetes Breakfast That Changes Lives

Hey this is Adam Brown from diaTribe, and
I wanted to share a recipe that’s totally changed my life, and actually the lives of a lot of
other diaTribe readers. I shared this in a column last fall. It’s
called chia pudding, which sounds a little bit strange, but I promise you it’s a total game changer
for breakfast, at least for me and a lot of other diaTribe readers. I want to show you how to make it because
it’s a little bit nuanced, but nailing the recipe which I’ve made about
200 times now actually makes a huge difference. So what you need – it only takes a few minutes
to make in the morning, and it’s perfect as a quick on-the-go breakfast – you need some
chia seeds which I buy in bulk online. This costs about 10 bucks and lasts about 20 breakfasts. So I do a quarter cup of chia seeds, and then
half a cup of water, and what’s cool about chia seeds is they’re almost totally fiber,
they’re 80% fiber, and when you put them in water they soak up the water, so you give it a
good stir, and as you keep stirring it, stir it for about 40 seconds or a minute, it soaks
up all the water and makes this weird, cool, pudding-like gel that doesn’t really taste
like anything. Chia seeds kind of taste like poppy seeds
and don’t taste like much, so it’s all about how they’re flavored, which is why the recipe
is so important. So you give it a good stir, and it’ll slowly
soak up the water, and some people quadruple this, so they make it in a batch by quadrupling
it, but Iike to make it right before breakfast. And you can see it kinda gets this gel-like
pudding, and as that soaks up the water, then I usually add a little dollop of coconut oil,
because I like the taste of that, and I’ll put some cinnamon in there, and then I like
adding some peanuts, and you can also throw in raspberries or blueberries or whatever,
and give it a good stir. The nice thing about this is that it doesn’t
really increase blood sugar very much, so I’ll just take one unit of insulin for it,
as if it was like 10 grams of carbs, but you can take the insulin right when the meal starts,
so you don’t have to guess 20 minutes ahead of time, and about 95% of the time I see a
super flat increase in blood sugar or no increase at all. And that’s it! If this sounds interesting to you, this is
just one of about 43 bright spots in my upcoming book, so you can go to
and sign up to get the book for free before it comes out, and I’m really excited to share
this recipe and also tons of other mindset and food and exercise and sleep bright spots. Thanks for listening and let us know what
you think in the comments. We’ll also post the recipe down there to make
it really easy. Thank you!

  1. i LOVE this … and I was completely skeptical ! Chia seed pudding! Thank you Adam! Check out the giveaway if you liked this ….

  2. I just saw you speak at the T1D Nation Summit in Phoenix. You were great! I was wondering why you add the coconut oil? Is it just for flavor? Thanks!

  3. omg, these look so good thanks for all these.
    i found this book who offers the easiest ways of preparing 360 recipes step by step very tasty and healthy for diabetes .that change my life I became a professional cook & healthy person.
    what do you think about this?
    Bon Appétit!

  4. I've just been diagnosed with (probable) type 2 diabetes. Is this something I could eat? Also, what do you think of good-old porridge (rolled oats in USA?) made with semi-skimmed milk?

  5. Help Me: My husband blood sugar keeps spiking after his breakfast shake and I need to know what im doing wrong. Its started at 151 then after the shake  it was 300, WHY? Ingredients:    1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 tsp cinnamon, 25g protein powder (zero carbs), 2 tsp chia seeds, 1/2 banana, 2 tbs evaporated milk, blended together with 1.5 cups of water. I thought all my ingredients were perfect, ARE THEY? Macro count  60g carbs, 38g protein, 12g fat.

  6. You ned to work on your sound… It sounds like your speaking in acorridor Or something! Pity otherwise great message that doesn't come forward

  7. I don't even know why this guy mentioned Blood Sugar as what he has just made would not raise people's blood glucose. Sorry but I could not eat that. I would use coconut milk, with natural sweetener no sugar cocoa powder with some berries, warm the coconut milk up..delicious

  8. First mistake – it's hard to hear you. You really need to have a microphone up close to you. Second of all you said "and as you can see it turns into a gel"…but we couldn't see inside the bowl. You really should have moved the camera closer too.

  9. You're a beautiful man in and out I can tell but eating that is comprable to suck in the shit out of a dog's ass and swallowing.

    and lastly I've got to finish all that sang by saying that would not be good for diabetics to eat who are older because they may need more substantial food that's going to take longer to break down and their stomachs to keep their sugar level so be careful about the advice you gave cuz the minute somebody loses their life or almost does over there sugar dropping for eating what you're showing them you may be liable

  13. Prednisone was applied to heal my pneumonia, nonetheless, the medicine also stimulated the increase of my blood sugar levels which led to diabetic issues. My A1C soared to 10.1 at that time.
