Is this a healthy breakfast for pre-diabetic?

Is this a healthy breakfast for a 56 year old female pre-diabetic My favorite smoothie: 3 Raspberries 2 Strawberries 10 Goji berries 15 Blueberries 3 Blackberries scoop of watermelon 10 Cashews 6 Almonds 6 Walnuts ¼ cup cocoa nibs 2 (¼-inch thick) avocado slices ¼ cup raw rolled oats 1 TBsp Sunflower seeds 1 TBsp Pumpkin seeds 2 TBsp Hemp seeds 2 TBS chia seed jell ¼ Banana 1 orange (ice cube size) 1000 mg Cinnamon w/ chromium 1 scoop Spiru-tein Choc protein powder 1 scoop Ruby Red powder Kale or spinach or spring greens or Butter Lettuce ¼ Joint juice, ¼ grape juice, ¼ water ¼ almond milk

Answer:

There is quite a lot of fruit sugar in what you have listed above and as well as the protein powder and almond milk which also contains sugars. I am not familiar with Ruby red powder so cant comment on that. Combining everything you have listed above will provide quite a lot of calories and sugar. I would try to suggest you reduce the amount of the ingredients below as they are main sources of sugar in your breakfast. 3 Raspberries 2 Strawberries 10 Goji berries 15 Blueberries 3 Blackberries scoop of watermelon ¼ cup cocoa nibs (depending on how they are prepared) ¼ Banana 1 orange 1 scoop Spiru-tein Choc protein powder 1 scoop Ruby Red powder ¼ grape juice, ¼ almond milk The other items on your list are mainly sources of fat and protein which are fine, however be aware that nuts and seeds are rich sources of calories as well.
