I'm having trouble finding good options for breakfast on-the-go. I leave for work at 5:30 am and I am not a morning person, so a sit-down breakfast every morning is really not an option. I've been eating granola bars or Special K bars for breakfast while I'm driving my hour and a half commute. I don't like pork, chicken, or turkey, so all the frozen breakfast items are out. I got so frustrated in the grocery store this afternoon, it actually made me cry. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Would it help to move outside the confines of specific "breakfast" foods? I eat whatever I like for any meal of the day. If you had a few things made up that you could just grab on the way out the door . . . maybe like deviled eggs, small burritos or other finger foods you enjoy. I often use salmon sandwich spread in small taco shells (LaTiara brand is only 4g of carb per shell) . . . anything like egg salad, tuna salad, etc., works pretty well in these little shells. Low-carb/high fiber tortillas make really good wraps & might even be easier to eat on-the-go than crispy shells.

What are some things you like to eat other times of the day? Maybe they'd work for a quick breakfast too.

Thanks! I don't know why I didn't think about non-breakfast items. That would definitely open up my options. One of my big problems is that I'm a picky eater.

You will figure all of this out, it is going to make eating a challenge since you are a picky eater. But thanks to Shanny, I had to retrain my brain about when to eat certain foods. Today I had something different for breakfast. I made a hamburger with cheese and eggs. It was good to! Don't be hard on yourself right now, you have been thrown a curve ball into your life, diabetes. One meal at a time! :D

I have been skipping breakfast, which seems to help more than hurt.

but I have made a couple things I like, recently:

Marty's breakfast bars, for one, or flax brownies.

Or Marty's "cereal" which is really a nuts and flax mix.

Also the mini-crustless quiche thingies, per South Beach.

I skipped breakfast the other day and had the highest reading since I got my meter. I decided that's not a good thing for me.

Thanks, y'all!

I can't skip breakfast either. You can make low carb blueberry muffins with almond meal and flaxseed. They rarely spike my bg. I like to eat them with a dab of full fat cream cheese. MCS's almondoodle cookies are also great and I tend to eat them with my morning coffee. I have also made low carb doughnuts with whey powder and I fry them in coconut oil. I either dust them with cinnamon and splenda or squirt some sugar free Walden Farms Jam inside for a jelly donut. Here are a few of my favorite low carb websites.
