Any suggestions for replacing my lunch of apple and almond butter? I've developed a sensitivity, now apples and pears make my stomach miserable, but I love apples and they are healthy, made me feel full, and kept everything working regularly. Any ideas?

Try some oatmeal. Yes I know it's a breakfast food, but who says you can eat if other times. If that'd not enough protein, add a 1/2 scoop or so of protein powder. I find all kinds of flavors. You could even put your nut butter in it.

I had the same issue. Switched to applesauce. Tummy likes it.

I hope it's homemade and unsweetened

Christie when I made the switch, I was very ill (I turned jaundiced and was extremely weak), could barely handle drinking water, which is generally my drink of choice. My husband found applesauce at the grocery store that was all natural with no sugar.

No, can't do applesauce either. Did a blood test and it's only apples, pears, and white potatoes. Doesn't oatmeal have sugar?

dejarme the flavored instant oatmeals have lots of sugar. Old fashioned and steel cut oats do not.

I wouldn't recommend having too many fruits as a diabetic. They have alot of sugar. I would definitely have oatmeal with half of the apple to decrease the amount of sugar intake and it's filling before your next meal.

Funny how different we all are. Oatmeal rockets my BS for several hours but fruits do not.

It's all about how much you intake? And what kind you choose and how you prepare it?

Same for me, citrus and melons make my bs go up but the apple and nut butter combo never did. Oatmeal used to be a breakfast favorite but it makes me go high unless I add Pb or yogurt

Make it how it works best for you. Try it with water, soymilk, almond or coconut milk. There's many way to prepare it but oatmeal keeps you full and prevents you from snacking before your next meal. And stuck to whole wheat or steel cut oats. And sugar isn't necessary if you're making it with any of these choices

How about blueberries (in place of the apple)? One go to combination for me is blueberries, cottage cheese, and pumpkin seeds (raw or sprouted aka pepitas). If for breakfast, I eat it straight. If for lunch, I put it over a huge bed of mixed greens.

How would you recommend fixing steel cut oatmeal for taking as lunch to eat at my desk? Do you all fix a huge pot and reheat? What's your recipe? Also granola has oats, right? Do you all have a favorite make at home granola Recipe?
