I now try to eat the same breakfast but will alternate a little now and then. My breakfast beverage depends on my mood of the morning.
#1: 1 slice whole grain toast with cream cheese, red grapes OR fresh strawberries, coffee or green tea
#2: 1/2 cup cottage cheese, fresh fruit preferably fresh berries or red grapes, coffee or green tea
#3: 1 fried egg or 2 egg veggie omelet, whole grain toast, dab of ketchup, 1/2 apple, coffee or tea
I like to chew on something instead of just drinking, as in a protein drink. It just doesn't feel substantial enough for me.
I now take fish oil, Vitamin D, a low dose multi-vitamin, zinc, calcium in the form of Tums (offsets the acids in coffee)...and Kyolic, a Japanese odorless garlic supplement. I eat a lot of Vitamin C-rich foods and I don't want to risk toxicity.
It may not seem like a lot of food at breakfast but as a diabetic, I eat often. I eat a mid-morning snack of nuts, cheese, yogurt, veggies sticks with hummus, etc.
