So, I was craving waffles so badly this week and I pretty much gave them up cold turkey when I started eating for my diabetes.

My mother found me 7 grain Kashi waffles. And for 2 waffles I'm only eating 18 carbs (it has 7 grams of fiber) and I've managed to keep my BG's at a normal reading come lunchtime after 2 waffles, some sugar free syrup and turkey bacon for breakfast.

My question is; has anyone else tried any of the other Kashi products? And how were you BG's after eating them? I like to eat organic and the Kashi waffles are delicious, so I'm willing to try more of the products out there.

I buy the kashi crackers mostly. My numbers are ok. I think the fiber helps w/that. I have also tried the warm cinnamon cereal. Did ok w/that too. I can't eat some of their products though because of a soy allergy.

I haven't tried the Kashi waffles, but I can sure see them going into my grocery cart next time I go shopping. Good tip!!

I tend to cook mostly from scratch, so I haven't tried any of the products. But it sounds like you're paying attention to the labeling and it may be a whole grain product which of course is good. And best of all, you found a solution to a craving that is friendly to your glucose levels. That's key to lifelong control. Good for you!

Thank you! I read the labels whenever I'm at the store. It's the best way for me to keep track of what's going into my body. I cook most of my meals from scratch, but when I'm only cooking for me (especially things like waffles) I prefer frozen because I have so much leftover. The Kashi waffles were a great find!

It's good to have a quick and easy solution that works with your meal plan, but when you do cook your own, remember that you can freeze in single serving ziplocks for a quick breakfast another time.
