Default any good cerials

I have been going through the nutrients of various cerials, time consuming.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

All regular cereal raises my bg too much so is out of my diet, but I do eat a hot cereal that I like quite a lot. It's this one.

For the water I use 1:1 cream:water and add a few sliced strawberries to it. Yum!

I followed your link and was reminded that I bought that a couple of years ago. I need to get more--I remember liking it.

Although I don't eat cold cereal, saw mention of Magic Spoon cereal, thought of you, and pass it along. No clue what it tastes like but it looks very diabetic-friendly. Seems to be sold only on their site.

Here's one review.

I had it on Subscribe and Save ... and was just notified that it wasn't part of that any longer so no more 15% discount Guess I'll just have to buy 3 bags at a time and get a discount that way!

I make my own cereal with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds and unsweetened coconut flakes. I mix it all up and roast it for about 30 minutes on 400 degrees, stirring occasionally. You can add cinnamon to it.

I bought some hemp hearts to add to this cereal. After looking at Cassie2922's post I'll add some unsweetened coconut to it next time!

I found some Sola Granola at a local store (Drug Emporium/Vitamins Plus) that comes in different flavors. I've tried Chocolate Maple Pecan and Strawberry Vanilla so far. It has 4g net carbs and neither has hurt me so far. It appears to be available online also, but mine was cheaper in town.
