Ooo, those eggs look fabulous! I eat variations of eggs & cheese almost every day for breakfast. Love eggs. I also have pancakes made from almound flour, or almond flourc/oconut flour muffins on weekends when I have more time. I don't eat fruit, except for small portions of berrries every now & then. Too many carbs for me & fructose isn't our friend.

You are making me feel hungry with that picture of your breakfast! I usually have an almond meal muffin with blueberries and yogurt with coffee. I have the muffin and yogurt in a bowl and my mind is tricked into thinking I am eating my pre-dx breakfast of cereal. About once a week I will have scrambled eggs with bacon, but I don't really like eggs for breakfast.

The muffin would put me in the stratosphere. I do throw some blueberries in my greek yogurt sometime. :)

Low carb muffins I make with almond &/or coconut flour have 3-5 carbs each. Bet Pastelpainer's are similar.

Sorry todd but for myself no fruit or gluten most type 1 should be aware of gluten, tomato are full of sugar its a fruit, dairy full of sugar, try some green veggis with a egg and coffee it works for me no more that 30 carbs a day.

I like the idea of greenie instead of the tomato. I usually have 1/2 a fruit for breakfast and can maintain mid 100's BG. The Greek yoghurt is 5g of carbs per 4 oz, no sugar added only the lactose. The tomato was an anomaly. Thanks for the comments.

yep you will find what works, thats great you can keep your BG in Range way to go. take care bob

Lately bacon and eggs <2g of carbs. Those muffins sound good!

Since I'm out of the door by 0700 to go to the gym, I don't do much for breakfast. I may grab a slice of cooked meat or a cchunk of cheese from trhe fridge. I have a coffee at the gym where I meet up with the rest of my "gang". Until the end of the month, [Jan 2012], I'm having to go even earlier, because a railway bridge is being replaced. It's closed a cross town route and caused traffic chaos. Unfortunately my gym is about 3 miles away. Too far to walk in a reasonable time.

Yesterday was Bologna Sausage Gravy (SOS) on a low carb pita. Maybe 10 carbs total. The gravy is with WPI5000 and Almond Flour.
My daily breakfast at work is 2 Kavli crisps with cheese and cold cuts.

Todd, those eggs do look awesome.

I wish I could have your breakfast every morning, *sigh* it looks delicious while I am sitting here eating my roast chicken and kale ...

Hi Kelly I love kale and 1 egg in the morning way to go lots of green veggis are so good for you and will keep the BG Low
