Ok I have taken parts of this for a low maintenance breakfast and was hoping you guys and galls could rate it for me if you didn't mind!

Ok I would LOVE a egg/meat-based breakfast, but even if I manage to fight off my quilt and unglue my eyelids, I am usually left with about 5 minutes before I need to be at work, so a quick-grab breakfast is preferred for me.

I make my own yogurt via Easiyo and usually favour the low fat greek style. I grab around 200g of this in the mornings, with a teaspoon (and a slight spillage) of sugar free granola and top this off with approx 4-5 frozen cherries so when I get to work and sit at my desk, I have a lovely cool pot of loveliness to kick start my day.

Right people. I rather enjoy this food, so there MUST be something wrong with it. your thoughts please :)

It sounds OK to me (what does your meter tell you?), but cherries are around 1g carb each, you could have a lot more frozen raspberries for the same amount of carb.

I would be very happy with raspberries too, I just had frozen cherries in the freezer to use up!

The bit that may be wrong is the granola and possibly the cherries. But, that's just a guess. Patti gave you the best answer with a question:

what does your meter tell you?

When I eat yoghurt at the moment I add chopped strawberries from the back garden. When those are out of season I have found frozen berries (blueberries and similar) have less effect on my BGs than cherries.

This morning I cooked an asparagus, onion and cheese omelette. My coffee takes seven minutes from the moment I put it on the gas, so I have become practiced at cooking breakfasts within that timescale. The longest part of cooking omeletes is the preparation of the veges; the actual cooking, including pre-cooking the onions and asparagus was less than five minutes in a hot skillet. The beaten eggs only take a minute or less. If you take longer than that you are over-cooking it.

Please do two things.

1. Read these: Breakfasts and Breakfast On The Run

2. Buy an alarm clock and wake up 15 minutes earlier to save your life :)
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

The veg prep time is why I keep a bowl of shredded veg in the fridge. I posted about it somewhere but not in the Breakfast section, sorry.
