Now I know that seems like a simple question to some…but for me it is a complicated question of timing and “what”. First, I will tell you I am type II; on Metformin 2000 mg a day, Amaryl 290 mg a day, I do exercise, which complicates breakfast, and I do watch my BG’s. Enough background info.
Breakfast is complicated for me, and although I can handle Lunch and Dinner and Snacks just fine, the first meal of the day, and the one I like the most, AND the most important one still eludes me. I swim early in the AM; typically I will have a protein drink, no sugar, no fat…as far as I know, before I go, gotta have something in the system. I have some granola bars that I have made that are terrific with lo sugars and no fats. Sometimes I combine, sometimes I do one or the other. By the time I get home, it is 9:00 or 10:00 and I need to EAT breakfast… consider the before swimming a snack. When it is that late, and I have to shower and dress, it’s getting closer to lunch…and I’m in a quandry, do I eat breakfast and what? or do I wait for lunch and have what I would normally eat?
Then the question, of WHAT exactly do you eat for breakfast? I would love to say I have eggs, toast, juice, Canadian Bacon, etc…but that would be lying…I can only dream of those kinds of breakfasts now.
I have to fit breakfast in to a weigh loss program, too, so quandries all over the place. Just tell me what you eat…
