Trying to kick my habit of peanut butter but it's one of the main things I eat for breakfast. Any suggestions on low carb breakfast? I used to do oatmeal (which I realize is not low carb) but now it sends my glucose soaring.

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.

I do chia seed pudding with peanut butter! I get all natural peanut butter so it is lower in carbs.

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

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

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.

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?

Answered 11 months ago    reply

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:

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.
