Grace,
I recently started to eat Chobani Greek Yogurt with strawberries or blueberries added. Each serving has around 12-15g carbs! I eat it primarily for breakfast. That is all I eat. It is good eating and fills me up and I weight 270 at 6'2"! So I am not a small guy. Sometimes I eat one for lunch also, depending how rushed I am.

Just wanted to mention this 'quick' meal!

Some members here will mix Greek Yogurt 50:50 with heavy whipping cream, thereby reducing the carbs per serving.

Thank you! I wish I liked yogurt. I just can not stomach it, not even the smell. I do miss cereal & fruit smoothies.

Grace,
Have you ever tried Chobani Greek Yogurt? I too hated yogurt all of it...then I went to work for a Swedish company and traveled into that part of the world in 2010. It was there I found out about REAL yogurt. That runny goopy stuff Americans had been eating all of my life was nothing like this stuff...it tasted more like pudding to me....and I love puddings! Thick, creamy, and no sour flavors....just nice smooth cream...with a hint of fruit...

Finally, a few years ago I found this brand of yogurt in the US food stores and tried it....it is really good if you get the one with fruit...just watch the carbs because they have some high and some low....

And if you have tried it and don't like it, try it like noted above...add heavy whipping cream which adds fat and cuts carbs...that has to be good!

On the other hand as a diabetic, it may be a good time to change what you like and don't like. I know I had to, just to keep a good variety in my meals.....My wife always told me to get out of my box....and when I did, usually I was pleasantly surprized....

Some of my kids like it, but I can't even stomach the smell. I have made extreme changes in my diet. I gave up anything with sugars or grains in it no fruit or anything. No fruit or anything. I will try adding somethings after my Dr, Appt next month. Just trying to get the glucose out of my system. I still have blurry vision which I am finding out is normal for dropping BG levels. Not a very nice disease. So use to skipping meals and just being able to grab something and go on. I miss that the most I did try the Pizza recipe on here last night. It was very good. Moz cheese, almond flour, egg, cr cheese. It seems like my day is planning something edible.

Hi Grace

Diabetes is definitely not convenient.

It does take some time for the "new normal" way of living with diabetes to "feel" normal. I think you are doing a great job already.

I sort of like yogurt, but can't eat it because of the dairy, for which I am sensitive. For for me, I don't include yogurt in my eating plan. It certainly isn't necessary. There's lots of other things to choose from.
