I am curious at what you eat for breakfast. I have always hated breakfast. I do not know why I hate breakfast but I always have. My mother always made me eat breakfast. It was usually cereal (Cheerios), fruit and milk.
Breakfast went on until I went to college. I would eat breakfast during the week as it gave me a chance to discuss classes with fellow students but avoided it on the weekends. It was usually bacon, eggs, grits or hash browns, buttered toast and a Coke.
After graduation breakfast was a no-no. If I was hungry when I woke up I would eat a slice of cold pizza (pepperoni, sausage, bacon and meatballs). With a Coke that hit the spot. When there was no pizza, cakes, cookies, donuts or a Danish would do.
Now I have to eat the hated meal. It is virtually the same every day. Two slices double fiber, whole grain bread topped with 2 tablespoons low fat peanut butter with 1 tablespoon Planers sugar free raspberry preserves (to give it a jelly donut taste) sprinkled with a tablespoon of ground flax seed and topped off with cinnamon and nutmeg. Some times I will add a tablespoon of fat free cream cheese or a tablespoon of Smart Balance spread or both. I add a fat free yogurt with probiotics mixed with another tablespoon of ground flax seed to round out this dreaded morning meal. It may sound boring eating the same breakfast everyday but I find I can tolerate eating breakfast this way. I find my pre-lunch numbers to be consistently around 105-110. So boring as it is it does serve its purpose. I just have to be careful with any activities or a delay in lunch to prevent a low.
