I found this recipe in The better Homes and Gardens Diabetic cookbook. I have modified it a little to reduce the salt.

I am in this huge rut when it comes to breakfast. I have been eating oatmeal or bagels and yogurt for the last 4 months. Sometimes I add in eggs to the mix, but I still have to find the carbs to add to it.
I love fruit, but I buy it and I can’t eat it quick enough. I can’t afford to buy just a few at a time and I usually can’t get to the store to do that anyway. I’m thinking I’m going to search the Internet for breakfast ideas. I’m going to try to post a new one every Saturday for you all to try on Sunday, I may even come up with some recipes of my own. Yes I can cook very well.

I’m actually excited about Christmas this year. I wasn’t able to get exactly what I wanted to get people, but I got some better stuff then I have in the past and I’m happy with how the season has turned out.
The biggest obstacle I have now is staying away from all the sweets. I’m lucky in that I only have one Christmas to go to this year and it’s at my home so I can come hide upstairs for a few minutes away from the food! I also have tomorrow as a planned splurge day. I love these days and I love even more that my doctor told me to take these days. Pretty much the rule is if you sugar is high and you know exactly why it’s high, then your okay. If it’s high and you’ve been following the lifestyle change and not having a splurge day then theres a problem.
So I will be enjoying some good cookies and cake tomorrow, I might even eat some pie, but I’m not sure yet! The good news is my nephew just started walking a week ago and he can zoom all over the place, guess who I will be chasing around tomorrow!
