    Default Low GI breakfast ideas

    I'm looking for some low GI breakfast suggestions that are simple to prepare and will keep me going throughout the morning (roughly two 15g serves of carbs in total).

    I've been having two pieces of toast with cheese or eggs most of the time and am getting a bit bored with it. Plus my after-breakfast blood sugar levels are starting to creep up (and are the highest readings of the day) so I'm going to need to cut down on the carbs but fill up on something else instead.

    Any ideas for tasty, healthy breakfasts?

    Thanks, Indigo. I'm just sooooo over toast! And cereal just doesn't fill me up enough, plus pushes my blood sugar too high. I'll have to do a bit of research into other options.

    Can you try adding in extras? I had mushrooms, tinned tomatoes (or fresh) and they didn't affect my blood sugar. I also find a glass of milk filling but it doesn't affect my blood sugar. So I might have 2 hard boiled eggs, a slice of toast and a glass of milk... Hope that helps!

    Sounds weird but it's quite common in Asia to have soup for breakfast - I'm going to do this next week - miso or lentil or even chicken and veggie soup for DS - lots of protein and veggies and low GI ( I put pasta , rice or quinoa in my chicken soup to bulk it up for DS) so maybe give it a try?

    I had GDM and I hate eggs.

    Breakfast would be Burgen toasted (gave much lower BSL than any other bread) with peanut butter or grilled with cheese and tomato. They have fruit bread too which is yum with loads of butter.

    My favourite breakfast would be microwave porridge made with rolled oats (lower GI then quick oats). I'd put in enough water to come level with the oats then zap for 3 min, stir then add milk and stir more. I'd add a tablespoon of sunflower seeds, half a tablespoon of pepitas, a shake of chia and about 10 almonds and sometimes sultanas.

    Special K was also good for my BSL but I'd have that for my 10pm snack.

    I quite often have natural or greek yoghurt as they are lower in sugar than normal yogurt and i make my own muslie to go with it. Ibout in oats, bran and a range of seeds and nuts snd some time berries.
    It is low gi and you can mix it up to keep you carb, fat and sugar intake to where is best for you.
