I mix ricotta cheese with some Splenda or sugar free marmalade and put it on toast or egg whites. If fruit is ok for you, you can mix in some fruit.
I like whole grain crisp bread with veggies or scrambled egg, or I have plain yogurt with fruit or a little "Sanddornsaft" , buckthorn juice or a dollop of Nutella. Nuts, toast with cheese. I also sometimes make a breakfast quiche, they freeze well.
I like to do eggs. Sometimes an english muffin. When I go out to eat I'll get omelettes or scrambles. Really I'm just big on eggs lol.
I eat steel cut oatmeal and I add a tablespoon of chia seeds and it doesn't make my sugar go up it's healthier for you.
Yeah that's the kind I like! My glucose used to be fine after eating it but now it's not. I may give it another go.
Ok I hope it works out for you.. it's a worth to try
I add chia & a tablespoon of coconut oil & it keeps it even. Also I don't use dairy.
I do chia seed pudding with peanut butter! I get all natural peanut butter so it is lower in carbs.
I love 1/2 c. steel cut oatmeal with 1/4 c. walnuts and 1/4 c. blueberries.
Merette, that sounds great! I just bought some today, never had it. How long do you cook them? The oats?
dutremble I put 1/2 c. Steel cut oats in a bowl with 1/2 cup milk or water, add 1 tsp. clear vanilla extract and 1 Splenda packet. I put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning I add 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup walnuts and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Then it's good to go
Merette, thank you! That sounds so yummy, I'm going to have it tomorrow!
dutremble it really is super yummy. Let me know how you like it
Merette, LOVE it! I'll have that very often. I love hot Swiss Muesli, but this is very yummy too. Thanks again!
dutremble, you’re very welcome
I have been on a blueberries and cottage cheese kick for breakfast. Sounds weird but super yummy
I have that sometimes. But lately it's been cottage cheese with homegrown tomatoes.
Oh yea! I do that for lunch and add cinnamon. I'll have to try it for breakfast!
use natural peanut butter it won't raise your blood sugar as fast also oatmeal is good for you check the label for carb also has fiber
Check peanut butter for ingredients - if ingredients say 100% nuts and nothing else then its fine but if it includes other ingredients it should be considered a limited snack.
Almond butter is delicious and doesn't typically have as much added sugar as peanut butter
Greek yogurt or almond flour pancakes
I like eggs, avocado and my 1 slice of bread I allow myself daily is sprouted / Ezekiel bread toasted . I also have cherry tomatoes and cucumber chopped up with it
Peanut butter, orange juice, bananas and watermelon sends my blood sugar soaring. Everyone is different though and different things might effect you different ways.
Try cutting back on the pnut butter a little each day, so you don't feel so deprived. Then you will get to the point where it id such a minute amour that you won't even bother.
Steel cut oats with a teaspoon of PB. 2% plain Greek yogurt with cinnamon and almonds. Boom,
I eat scrambled eggs with whole grain toast.
If you wish to stay conventional, eggs in almost any fashion are an excellent choice. Two eggs barely have any carbs and typically run 160 for the pair. I will say that sometimes it is good to think outside the box. On occasion I have broiled fish for breakfast if I am tired of eggs and oatmeal. Again, barely any carbs, excellent protein and under 200 calories.
Nutriseed (I think) do healthy nut butters, Ive just ordered some but not arrived yet. Ive been making my own for a year or so, any nuts (I use almonds, cashews, hazelnuts), lightly toast then put in a blender and blend until it becomes a butter consistency. I then add coconut oil, vanilla,a little raw honey and himayan salt to taste. Most peanut butters from the shops have sugar.
My issue is I can't stop when it comes to peanut butter. And I'm not sure replacing it will help fix that addiction. That's why I want to try to have other things for breakfast and maybe I won't miss it as much. I'm very intrigued by the Chia seeds... Thanks for all the suggestions!
I know your issue with peanut butter and I don't bring it in the house anymore. I can knock off a jar by myself in a weeks time It's very hard to give up. When I make a sandwich for lunch and put mayo on my sandwich,that's my bad condiment
These are the ingredients I use. My go to 4-5 breakfasts per week. Blood sugar levels flat line through this with minimal insulin dosed.
sugabo this is great! How do you use these ingredients? Do you mix them together in a blender or add other ingredients?
I do 1/8 cup chia seeds, 3/8 cup almond milk, couple good shakes cinnamon. Stir vigorously. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so. Stir again. The chia seeds need to soak up the almond milk. Then I add a handful of walnuts and banana chips. Other people add peanuts, blueberries - whatever sounds good. There are recipes that call for mixing it and leaving in the refrigerator over night - but this works for me. It is a little different! Here is a pic of the finished product:
sugabo thank you! I will definitely be making this!
I do best with a lowish carb soup, or leftovers from a low carb dinner.
Have you heard of PB 2 dry peanut butter no fat.
lol and there I was thinking it was just me who had a strange obsession with peanut butter! Every time I pass the cupboard I have a spoonful out of the jar.
My obsession is with chocolate - (I'll eat nutella straight out of the jar) unfortunately (or fortunately however you look at it) the only chocolate my mum has in the house were these truffle cocoa chocolates she got for a xmas gift 3 yrs ago that are expired; and chocolate caramel drink sachets...other than ice cream there are no snacks in the house. Starting to get the shakes from withdrawals.
