Something Besides Eggs For Breakfast?


(Monique H) #1

Our son is not a big breakfast eater (like me), but I try to get him to eat at least before 10:00 am.  He's not having any problem with lows before breakfast, so I'm not pushing it too much.  But, I am trying to be sure he gets protein in the morning to help avoid drops before lunch.  So, I end up making eggs EVERY MORNING.  I know it's not healthy to eat the same thing every day, especially eggs, so how else do you get protein in the morning?

It may have been because I was used to doing needles for years already..but when I was about 10 I tried the inject ease at a party I was at with my mom..something to do with this other diabetic kid that was there using one..and their parent suggesting I try it and my mom thinking it was a great idea.....nevertheless.....terrified me to death with it's suddenly noise and stab! I have never touched one since.

I used the inject-ease too, but my doctor gave it too me in the hospital.  It worked fine, and for a long time I couldn't give myself an injection without it (I was so used to an instant injection). When I finally started giving manual injections I stopped bruising so much, and found the injections hurt less.

my mom takes wheat bagles and puts egg, cheese and bacon or sausage patties on it and makes a sandwich. its really good and it provides a different way to have eggs and it gives variety.

By themselves? :)  I'll have to see how I can work those in, 'cause our son LOVES string cheese!  Thanks!

I have gotten away from my good habit of eating breakfast, but I find that having just one cheesestrings in the morning provides protein and gets my metabolism in gear for the rest of the morning!

Yikes -- I don't know how you guys can not eat breakfast!! I'm only eating 1200 calories right now, so even though I don't skip breakfast (except for when I sleep in on days I plan on eating something big/bad... one less meal ;) to have to tally) my brain is a scrambled MESS when I eat light. I started failing tests at school nearing the end of the year -- straight F's, totally out of character -- so I'm just thankful I've got the summer to be all scrambled in :)

Toast with peanut butter is good.

make deluxe stuff that takes more time. like pancakes and waffles.

just make lots of batter and refridgerate it or cook it all and freezze them. you could probably add some healthy stuff in there.

I always just count the milk in my cereal as my breakfast protein. There's no way I'd get to work in the morning if I cooked eggs, but I'd eat them every day for breakfast if DH would cook them. lol. As long as the cereal is low carb, I'm *usually* ok w/ post breakfast spikes...

OMG, no time to scramble an egg?  You must be more frazzled than I am :)

Well, if it's protein you're looking for, you could just always eat a glop of peanut-butter-in-a-bowl (hey, PBB!)... but then that starts into the fat content issue lol

Okaaaaay, so eggs it is :)  I definitely "mix it up" as much as possible, doing variations on a pan-fry with hashbrown, bacon, sweet peppers (not that the kids don't pick those out), onions (same deal), and whatever else sounds good.  Breakfast burritos are always a hit, but the refried beans I think have plenty of carbs.  Then, there's just plain-ol' cheesy eggs for the kids, and fancy eggs with everything but the kitchen sink for me and hubby.  That just seems like a whole lot of eggs every week (come to think of it, it is a whole lot of eggs, based on how many we buy).  Maybe we should just get some suburban chickens :)

Dang, Monique. I'm ordering my breakfasts from you from now on :)

BTW, what's with the peanut butter in a bowl?  The boys have started doing the glob of peanut butter, with a glop of jelly mixed in.  Ugh!  It's not like we don't have crackers, or anything! :)

Hey, PB is incredibile lol It's one of my favs


(Monique H) #18

Hey, I love PB as much as the next gal.  But, heck, at least give me some chocolate on the side :)

(Was that totally non-PC on this list?).

You've got me there, Monique. I love chocolate :) In fact I should be eating less of it lately because I've been getting creative with the smores haha and in the mean time it's practically killing my blood sugars
