To make a superfood smoothie according to the instructions from the American Diabetes Association, put 2 cups baby spinach, 1 cup frozen blueberries and 1 banana into a blender. Pour in 1 cup almond milk. Thoroughly blend the ingredients to form a thick, smooth beverage. This recipe makes two servings, and each serving contains 125 calories.

To make one serving of egg and avocado toast, start by poaching the egg, suggests the American Diabetes Association. Pour 1/2 cup water into a small microwaveable bowl. Carefully place an egg inside, and fully immerse it in the water. Cover the bowl with a microwaveable saucer, and heat it in the microwave on the high setting for one minute, or until the egg white is set, and the yolk is no longer runny.

Toast a piece of whole-grain bread. Mash 1/4 of an avocado, and spread the avocado mash on the toast. Season with black pepper. Place the poached egg on top, and garnish it with 1 tablespoon nonfat plain Greek yogurt. Each serving of this egg and avocado toast amounts to 240 calories, estimates the American Diabetes Association. Add a fresh vegetable component to the dish by serving it with a green salad.
