I am always at a loss to know what to have to eat when I have a cup of tea/coffee for morning or afternoon tea.
I am looking for your ideas on this.
for an immediate something in the AM before break
bundyanne, you might also use your favorite Web search tool to look for the phrase keto cakes (or cookies or biscuits). There are many recipes out there adapted with ingredients like almond flour and eggs and cream cheese that more closely mimic tradtional carb-laden baked goods.

Looks like you eat a pretty good bit of carbs. My suggestions come from our (MAD) very low carb, high fat diet, but perhaps they will help you. First of all, figure out three or 4 different immediate early AM snacks to go with a cup of coffee and stock up on them that way you will not be grabbing just anything and will have better control of your BG. I count the following with coffee as 16+ grams giving of carb and give 2 units of insulin, even though there is no carb in any of this except perhaps a little in sausage or cheese and a very tiny bit in the eggs. It still drives his blood sugar up enough to need insulin. The caffeine in one cup of black coffee drives my husbands bg up the same as 8 grams of carb. To go along with the coffee we choose a protein snack like Bella cheese, string cheese, or a boiled egg or a few strips of bacon. The fat will help keep the bg more level. Ronnie has significant dawn phenomena and the only way to combat the early AM rise in blood sugar is to eat protein and fat soon after rising in the morning. If we dont do that we will have too give him correction boluses of insulin till past noon. That usually holds down his appetite and blood sugar till we sit and have a bigger meal for breakfast or an early lunch. I try to give Ronnie brain octane coffee and a cheese or egg snack and than flax porridge with 6 cranberries or 6 black berries. and another egg or meat . Usually only eat twice a day and this works for us. The meat dish is usually bacon, sausage, salmon/fish or left over meat or chicken from last nights supper. We sometimes have a slice of buttered Unbread, but too much of that over a week or two and we find our weight climbing. f
