An ingredient in green tea that helps reduce blood sugar spikes in mice may lead to new diet strategies for people, according to Penn State food scientists.

Who wants to eat mice? Yuck!

Don’t knock them until you’ve tried them.

Thanks for posting. Every bit of new information helps.

The problem here is not the green tea or the poor mice. It is the bagel. Anyone who is having problems with blood sugar levels needs to move away from refined carbohydrates and any sweeteners and move to complex carbohydrates and proteins.

High blood sugar can be a silent killer but more importantly it reduces the quality of life in very subtle and not so subtle ways.

High blood sugar reduces energy levels, makes you thirsty and can cloud thinking and clarity of thought. Yes, the bagel may be hard to leave behind but part of life is setting priorities.

Breakfast can be smoked salmon, barley, lean beef patties from a good butcher, a quiche, chicken gumbo or scrambled eggs.

Our current highly refined carbohydrate diet is a recent post WW2 development. I remember the fairy tale of the woodcutter having a piece of cheese and some milk for breakfast. I wondered how he got by on that.

It takes a shift in gears of how you think about breakfast. If you find breakfast drains you and you are tired later then consider a change. Find out what works for you. Just shift from the simple highly refined carbohydrates to the complex carbohydrates and proteins. It will reflect in your blood sugar level.
