I eat a variety of breakfast foods. Here are some examples: whole wheat english muffin and SF jam or just cereal cheerios and skim milk; egg white omlet with tomatoes and inions. Whatever it is I try to eat carbs and protein

Hello! Im not much of a breakfast eater-I dont really get hungry until lunchtime. I love the NSA Carnation Instant Breakfast. Its easy for me to drink in the morning and its yummy! It stabilizes my BS until Im ready to eat something.

I tend to eat the same things in the morning because I know what can keep my BG's in check until lunchtime…

Before I was diagnosed my go-to breakfast was an English muffin, toasted with butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. I love this! The other day I bought some Fiber One whole wheat English muffins and tried it with Splenda and cinnamon and light Promise butter. Delicious! And it keeps my BG low while satisfying my sweet tooth.

But usually, I eat a veggie omelet, turkey back and half of a sugar free muffin and my BG stays between 89-105. If I'm getting a low reading before breakfast I throw in some Fiber One yogurt as well.

I eat the same thing every morning because I know my BG will be fine till around 11. I get the low carb english muffins and toast it, then I put a patty of turkey sausage and a slice of cheese…kinda like a McMuffin…but healthyer and no grease…I love it. Sometimes if I have more time (very seldom) I fry an egg hard and add to it…love it even better!

Check our discussion archives (search) for breakfast food questions and answers. You'll find many entries on this topic. Because I am often on the go in the morning my favorite breakfasts consist of either low fat yogurt and/or Atkins bars. Both are low carb. Breakfast is truly the most important meal of the day. Just remember that it doesn't matter WHAT you eat but make sure that you eat something to jump start your body. It doesn't matter if you have a traditional breakfast like protein and eggs or leftovers from the dinner the night before… just make sure to use your head when it comes to carbs, calories, fat, protein, vitamins, and whatever your mind and body and soul enjoys. Silly rabbit… trix are NOT for kids (or diabetics).

I'm on a high protein diet right now so I go with eggs, but limit the yolks to 3 a week. I use 2 whites & 1 yolk if I make an omelet. Or I eat yogurt with a little granola on top. Also hard boiled egg whites. And very often I have what was left over from dinner the night before. You don't have to eat traditional breakfast foods.

im new to this as well. But i eat two egg paties a slice of ham, string cheese,2oz roll. That gives me enough protein, to keep my sugars low in the am.

Eggs always works for me and since my cholestrol is great, this is my choice and frankly, one of my favorite foods, so I lucked out in this dept. Sometimes I scramble eggs with veggies and this is even better.

Well, I know everyone is different, but I have found that eggs barely raise my bloodsuagr. Depending on the amount of time I have before I have to leave for work, I will make some Hash Browns O'Brien and some over easy eggs. Its usually very filling and doesnt raise my sugar too much. Another idea is Oatmean and some toast with butter. Or, even a salad! (My fave!!!) I could live off salad if givin the choice! lol. However, it doesnt really have much as far as carbs and sometimes doesnt hold my sugar up for too long after my morning insulin shots. hope this helps or that you have found some good ideas in the Recipe section.

last night, I broiled steel head trout and sauteed red cabbage in butter and balsamic vinegar accompanied with steam pureed cauliflower (which we eat now instead of potatoes) whole meal cost about $5.00 each. The most expensive was the trout. But we had about 10 oz each.

Irish Oatmeal… I have had all sorts of oatmeal but if you have the time, Irish Oatmeal with cut up bananas or fresh blueberries is like steak for breakfast it is so good.

Where do you get this oatmeal?

jayabee52 2011-03-10 17:06:48 -0600 Report

I'm not sure, but I think it may be the same as "steel cut oats"(as opposed to rolled oats). I found some at Trader Joe's I'm sure it is in other grocery stores too.

Steel cut are cut with knives , Quaker (and other brands like it) are partially cooked (from what I understand) and crushed in rollers (kinda like big steel rolling pins). I believe the Steel cut is not pre cooked.

Howdy Bleweyes! (I just invited you to be a friend)

First off, are you aware of our recipe section? If not, look for the link on the left border says "recipes" At this moment there are 277 recipes under "breakfast". You of course have to fit your tastes and the amount of carbs you are allowed per meal. Nutrition info is included with most (if not all) recipes.

But you don't have to limit breakfast to what is typically thought of as breakfast food. You COULD have a nice salad or a piece of meat and a carb. You could have some veggies and fruit. Whatever. But it is important to eat some kind of breakfast not long after you get up for the day.
