Since my bg spikes if I eat Wheaties for First Breakfast, I've started eating them (with almonds and almond milk) for Second Breakfast, which is sort of like lunch. So far, so good.

I'm ok with those, about 20g of carbs, I seem to be getting better at the moment, as my weight has come down my blood sugar is less volatile.

It's bread and potatoes I have issues with, so I avoid those

For the past couple of days I've had Joe's Special and a piece of buttered toast for breakfat instead of a single hard-boiled egg and toast. Gotta love a dish that was developed "to sate the early-morning appetites of a marauding band of Prohibition-era jazz musicians" (source).

There are all kinds of recipes for it online. I just scramble up a little hamburger, throw in a couple of whisked eggs and a bit of spinach, and add whatever seasonings I feel like (salt, pepper, onion, garlic, maybe some marjoram or hot sauce or nutmeg). You can add cheese if you want, but I usually don't since string cheese is my go-to snack the rest of the day.

Yesterday a kaiser roll sent my numbers high, so today I made a sausage omelot and laid it over a single piece of toast. I also had some ocean spray lower carb juice. My pre dinner BG was 96, so that seemed to be good for me.
