oat meal is good for lowering your blood sugar. also peanuts, granola, cinnamon, would be good breakfast options. other than that I've heard lima beans, vinegar, grapefruits are good for that too..

I'm sure there's tons of them out there!

Cinnamon is very good for blood sugar control. I take the capsules because it's easier for me. Also, just in general count the number of carbs you are eating. Aim for no more than 30 -45 per meal; and 15 for snacks. The more "whole" and unprocessed your carbs are, the better. Exercise also helps with sugar control.

Are you diabetic?
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Foods high in fiber will help. Also beans too are good. Rachel Ray has a great black bean recipe that is super easy to make. Below is a link to fajitas but the bean recipe is there too.

Are you drinking enough water? How is your salt consumption? When I crave sweets I drink a glass of water and if still craving I eat a pickle. Usually does the trick. If not I eat a few pieces of fruit.
