Like "Breakfast is notoriously hard for diabetics so you're very lucky to be able to eat such a large portion with no spike. I'm not so lucky unfortunately. I had to switch from plain old fashioned cooked on the stove to a microwavable flavored kind that has a smaller portion. Now I get decent numbers after eating it (110-130) whereas the other I tried I would go up to 170-200. Before I settled I tried..3/4 cup old fashioned made with 50/50 milk and water and 100% water. 1/2 cup old fashioned with 50/50 water and milk and 100% water. 3/4 instant with 50/50 milk and water and 100% water. 1/2 cup instant with 50/50 milk and water and 100% water. All of those I tried on the stove and in the microwave. Various pre-packaged instants like quaker, some with a blend of sugar and sweetners some with just sugar. The one I settled on is the Target Archer Farms strawberry creme. 30g of carb and does me nicely. "
