Betsy - good luck with the gall bladder! I hope that's something they do laparoscopically, and that you heal in no time at all!

I like planning ahead, too. I agree, if you can find the restaurant menu online and decide before you go what you'll order, it simplifies things considerably--AND moves things along faster since your decision is already made! LOL

When I eat breakfast out (and I feel like being a "good girl" LOL) I usually order from the side dishes... a side of bacon; a side of fruit; if I don't plan my one dairy for later, I can have cottage cheese... it's plenty for me to fill up on since I eat mini-meals six times a day....or, if they have it early enough, and I'm in the mood, I'll have a cup of soup.

There's no rule that says you have to eat a specific food just for breakfast--it's simply a bit harder if the restaurant doesn't serve everything all day! LOL

For most diabetics, there isn't any food you can't have, as long as you know what your trigger foods are, keep portion sizes under control, and TRACK EVERYTHING so you stay in your goal boundaries on your various nutrient....

I even eat cake on special occasions--two inches square, about two or three bites--but it will be my only carbohydrate source for the entire mealtime! LOL

If you're like me, it isn't about the food anyway... like holidays, it's more about the people!

Have fun!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called

Going out for breakfast is my favorite food-wise thing to do!
8-)
If I'm out-of-town for more than a two days, I will order Oatmeal and a banana (yeah. Lots of carbs in one meal, but lunch will be carb-free).
Otherwise, I order whole wheat toast, dry; 2 eggs, scrambled; 2 sausage links, or 2 slices of bacon, or ask them to sprinkle my eggs with cheese; and sliced fruit (omitting all those to which I am allergic) usually melon, banana, or tomatoes (too much sugar in OJ & too much salt in tomato juice).
I don't like the way restaurants are making omelettes these days: flat, not fluffy, and fried - more like a frittata.
Enjoy!

this is not the answer you might be looking for... but.... i am having gall bladder removed wednesday... we went to golden corral this morning and i had bacon... chicken fried steak... home fries with country gravy...and piece of pie..... i was told i could not have any of these after surgery... so this was my last ''no-no'' breakfast...

when i was working... we would go to shoney's... he had his fill of breakfast items and i loaded up with a salad and fruit

its really going to depends on your choice of restaurants..... good luck in your choices...

Go for the omelett, any veggies you like, bacon or sausage, if you like some plain yogurt, some fresh berries. All sugar and all grains, even whole grain, including oatmeal, are far too high in carbs for diabetics to consider. If you have dairy make sure it's full-fat, the only natural kind.

The egg and rye toast are great suggestions. Am omlette with veggies like mushrooms and onions and green peppers is another great choice.

Ordinarily my morning breakfast is steel cut oats, but I don't get oatmeal out because it's generally way too sweet AND is rolled oats vs. steel cut.

One thing I do right off the bat is ask for a box and box 1/2 of what the portion on the served plate is. It is generally way too large. Once it's boxed, then it's not a temptation to over eat.

Good luck.

Oh . . . did you check on line for nutrition information from the restaurant you're going to if it's available? That is a big help too.

An egg and taylor ham sandwich on a whole wheat English muffin or rye bread is a good breakfast. i also like poached eggs on rye or whole wheat bread.
