Default Orange Juice replacement?

So I was in the kitchen making breakfast today and the GF was having some of my emergency fruit loops and a glass of orange juice.

Which was killing me, mostly because I loved orange juice before and I haven't gotten to have any in almost a whole year. And probably won't get to have any again.

As for me, I made myself an omelet, with corn and white onion and some colby jack cheese. Also cut up a little beef summer sausage to put in there because I didn't have any ham sliced up at the moment and I was feeling a little adventurous anyway after I made some of Shanny's Cheese crisps last night.

So anyway, do you guys & gals have any suggestions on a replacement for orange juice I could make?

Also, because it seems I can't edit my reply, FYI my FSBG this morning was 127~

So hopefully I can keep that down all day (Lunch looks like it's coming up salad, haven't decided on dinner yet), and keep this week all down in the 90 to low 100s.

Corn ... well, that'd be right out, for me!

I like the Mio water flavoring, they have some sour flavors like Tangerine-Orange that are good wakeup drinks. Polypropylene Glycol, evil chemical sweeteners, and all ... it gets WATER into me, anyhow, so I drink it at work.

I would do the same - look at your store for diet orange flavored drinks, since they'll have no carbs but an orange-y taste or flavored orange waters.

Never used corn in omelets even before diabetes . . . now corn is completely off my menus because it spikes me to the moon.

I like the Mio suggestion, Linda . . . will have to look for the citrusy ones, cuz I do have an occasional jones for orange juice. Mostly when I watch old episodes of A Country Practice where the local watering hole serves orange juice as their main non-alcoholic drink.

My splurge on Christmas was to have a bottle of Mango Orange Sparkling Ice. It's sweetened I think with sucralose, which I normally don't do. Our traditional drink with breakfast on Christmas morning is mimosas. Last year (my first xmas after diagnosis) I had a very small glass of just champagne. This year, I wanted to have some kind of mimosa, so the Ice was my answer. It's 0 carbs, 0 calories.

Mio tastes good but what how much you use. It can demolish your stomach.
