just for the guys and girls out there that are having a tough time thinking outside the box for a breakfast idea. here it is!
Rob wolf gave me an idea...
"Do y’all remember when Wilford Brimley was the spokesman for Oatmeal? Well…now he is a spokesman for diabetes supplies! All kidding aside, the question of breakfast, particularly oatmeal and the like is a constant, wearing down of our soul. Here is a simple experiment: Have a breakfast consisting of 3-4 scrambled eggs with spinach, olive oil and whatever spices you might want. See how you feel 4-5 hours later. The next morning have a bowl of oatmeal. Kick up your heals and add a banana, some brown sugar or some dried fruit. How ya feeling 5hrs later today tiger? If you do not have rock solid blood sugar for a 4-6 hour period after a meal you are taking in too many carbs and consequently releasing too much insulin. No worries though, Mr. Brimley can hook you up with extra insulin once you pancreas gives out." - Robb Wolf
there are different types of oatmeal, but its the quantity you eat and aswell the type.
here is my 4 block spinach N' egg special.... blows away my regular breakfast!
3 whole eggs
1 oz Cheese
4cups fresh spinach
1 cup sliced tomato
spray on oil for frying pan
1 apple on the side
this is a 4 block meal with a little more than double fat quantities
fry up the fresh spinach until its all shriveled up
add tomatoes and cheese sliced
and mix eggs into it last stir it up, cook until eggs are ready.
feta cheese would rock this meal to a new level I'm sure!
