Ive been searching for a good low carb muesli recipe. Something with nuts, linseeds, ground almonds, maybe some berries, if anyone knows of one please share x

I buy a commercial one and add my own extras: Psyllium, Fibre, Muesli and Nuts

But I do not eat it at breakfast. Is that your intention? If so, whatever muesli you end up with please test an hour after eating it.
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

Hi
I don't eat breakfast, deliberately, for the past year. It has done me the world of good to fast until lunch every day. I found after a few weeks I totally got used to it, my hunger disappeared and my energy levels are very high. During the mornings I work hard physically, including a brisk 1 hour walking session with my two dogs. Lunch is low carb normally including eggs. Dinner always includes high protein and fat, low carb. No snacks. Best regime I have ever eaten.

To me breakfast is the least necessary meal of all. It is a massive myth to say it is the most important meal of all.

Well glad it works for you Camilla.  Not for everyone I'm afraid.  I can go high very easily with no breakfast and control it with a small amount of carbs.  Different for all of us.

I've spent all my life not eating breakfast as I'm much more comfortable that way. Unfortunately since being diagnosed with D I've had to force myself to eat something when I get up as if I don't my BG just keeps going up and up. I've also found it goes up if I go too long without food during the day, most annoying  :(

I'm lucky that I can skip breakfast and not have a rise.  I'm not hungry first thing.

Unfortunately if I miss breakfast my dawn effect keeps rising unacceptably.

Do you test over the course of a morning to see what is happening to your blood glucose levels with your high levels of acticvity?

It is a terrible breakfast if you have diabetes, especially if type 2.

PS Sorry Patti, I should have read you first :)

Normally I have grilled sausage,grilled bacon, mushrooms sauteed in butter, two free range eggs fried, one slice of stone-ground whole wheat bread. I used to include sauteed tomato, but they raise my BG too high.

There are several pizza base recipes in our recipe section Annie... Scroll down the home page of the forum to find the section, but there's one here http://diabetes-support.org.uk/diabetesforum/index.php/topic,2150.0.html. I'm pretty certain there are also several in the archive forum recipe section here http://www.diabetes-support.org.uk/forum/Blah.pl?c-800/

Just be aware that tho the base may be 'low carb' , tomato sauce for the base topping will be quite carby and so will onions. Use your meter to find out how big a piece is ok for you! ;)

Eh?

A 400g tin of chopped tomatoes is a whole 12g, @ 3g per 100g.

There's 19g in 100g of tomato PASTE though, so 38g in a whole tube of Tescos, which is 200g.

Dunno about Passata or whatever, you'd have to check the labels.
