For an easy and healthy meal using eggs, crack an egg into a microwave-safe bowl and whisk with 1 tablespoon of milk, notes the American Diabetes Association. Sprinkle with some ground pepper and garlic powder. Microwave for approximately one minute or until the eggs are thoroughly cooked. Flavor with 1 tablespoon salsa and 1 tablespoon reduced-fat cheese. Serve with whole grain toast or a piece of small fruit.

To make a simple smoothie, blend 1/2 cup of non-fat plain Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of low-fat milk and 1/2 cup of frozen fruit, suggests the American Diabetes Association. For added nutrition and flavor, include 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, some ground flax or a pinch of cinnamon. For a hot meal, cook 1/4 cup of quick oats in 1/2 cup of water either in the microwave for approximately one minute or on the stove top. Mix in 1 teaspoon Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a handful of dry roasted nuts.
