AAACCCCKKKKKK!!!!! Sugar on grits!! emoticon

If I want something wonderfully thick & creamy for breakfast with sugar on it, I'll fix cream of wheat. I can't even imagine what sweet grits would taste like!

emoticon

I'll take mine with cheese, please!! emoticon

Sending you a very gentle hug (since you're hurting so),

Very little sleep, what I got I was semi-awake for. Weird, but that's the only way I can explain it.

Got in more water today, thanks to that new water our friends brought me. I ate roughly 1000 calories, still not enough but better.

I'm very achy. Kinda miserable. Trying not to think about it, now that I know why. Drats.

According to the GP, I'm following orders to a tee. I see the surgeon next week.

Thanks for asking!

Karen asked "What are grits?"

LOL!!! Honey child, you must not have ever spent any time in the southern USA, have you? Grits is a staple of the southern pantry, most particularly at breakfast. They're made from corn, and are sorta like polenta.

Go to the website grits.com and you can learn all about this wonderful food.

Now there are folks who eat instant grits (made in the microwave) and then there are folks (like me) who maintain that instant grits just aren't fit for human consumption! LOL!! We cook 'em loooooooong and slow (in a double boiler) until they are wonderfully thick and creamy. Then you can eat 'em plain (meaning you add only butter & salt & pepper), or you can add bits of sausage, or country fried ham, or cheese to the dish. For southerners, you just can't find a better comfort food than grits!

Take care,
Carolyn

Sorry about that, probably a mistake on my part to have you relive that moment!
So more importantly, How are you doing today? Did you get any sleep last night? Are you getting enough food and water? I hope that you are being good and following the doc's order too!

LOL, you know when I was younger, I could tolerate temperature drops and highs. Now I have a low tolerance outside of say 60 to 75 degrees. I am also either to hot or to cold. It was sad on the news this morning that a marathon in Chicago, one of the runners past away from the heat exhaustion. And there was another marathon somewhere else that had many people pass out because of the heat and humidity. I believe they had to cancel the run for everyones safety.
That really tells all about heat and hydration. Oh didn't you have a similiar story while out on a walk?

I love egg mcMuffin too! I try to make my own with a thomas' light english muffin, one poached egg (or fried) and 2 strips of turkey bacon. My son loves it and I eat it occassionally as well. It's not the same as having mickeyD make it for you, but the taste is pretty good.

I have to be totally honest here. My fav breakfast is McDonald's Sausage Egg McMuffin with cheese, and a hash brown. Since I know that's "killer" food, I avoid it like the plague, but that doesn't stop me from having a huge hankering for it about 10 times a week!

I absolutely love oatmeal with some peanut butter and fruit mixed in, usually apples.

I love eggs, omelettes when I can get them (mess them up when I try to make them myself!). Village Inn has a really good veggie omelette.

I have started to use my juicer again. Does anyone know if you juice 2 apples and 3 carrots, does the calories still remain the same? I see fiber coming out one end, and juice on the other.

My favorite breakfast...

1/2 cup of egg beaters with red onion, green peppers, and mushrooms... sometimes I'll add a slice of fat free swiss cheese to them. I usually eat them with Kashi Truly Vanilla Oatmeal, and 8 oz Dannon Carb Freedom Strawberry yogurt. If my BG isn't too high in the morning I also like to add 1/2 cup no sugar added apple sauce to my oatmeal. Everything is under 400 calories. Without the cheese and applesauce its under 300 calories.

I enjoy the steel-cut oats from Trader Joe's. You just have to reheat them, and I add a little soy milk.
This morning I did have my whole wheat toast topped with egg, 1/2 slice of melted cheese, and 1/2 slice of turkey breast. And a 8 oz glass of soy milk. Very filling.

It does help. Thanks, Flo. Rice cookers have a lot more features than I would have guessed. I've looked at them in the past but decided they were a bit expensive for just rice, which I love, but don't eat too often. It sounds like the rice cookers are more versitile. I may rethink getting one now.

re: "I never thought about making breakfast in a rice cooker. I don't have a rice cooker mostly because I didn't know how well they would work. Does the oatmeal have a better flavor when made in a rice cooker? Is it like a slow cooker, but for rice? I've been curious."

I make steel-cut oats in the rice cooker because on the stove they take 45 minutes and need to be stirred. emoticon

When I upgraded I bought a rice cooker with a delayed-start feature specifically to make these oats. I can start them at night and wake up to a whole-grain breakfast.

Steel-cut oats are oat groats chopped into little pieces, instead of sliced and steamed. They're, well, sturdier. They're chewy, and they stick with me longer.

I belong to a yahoo group for rice cookers. Depending on the size and features you can make an amazing variety of dishes: rice, of course, but also oats, beans, chili, soup. Then there are cakes, ribs, pot roast...I haven't gone that direction. I do enjoy cooking rice with fresh vegetables in the steamer tray, or even just thrown in with the rice. (Depends on the vegetable. Long cooking ones I throw in with the rice. Short cooking ones I add to the basket later.

Whew! Hope that helps.

This morning I had 2 pcs. whole grain/high fiber bread w/flaxseed oil. 1/2 c. lowfat cottage cheese with 1/2 c. pineapple.

I almost always have the whole grain bread. I'll have it with Egg Beaters. If I'm in a rush I eat the toasted bread with 2 pcs. of fat free American cheese slapped in the middle. A few seconds in the microwave, after it's toasted, melts it perfect.
Love the question. Creates some new ideas for us.

I like to enjoy things by smell. It is a good thing unless you give in to temptation. I used to a lot but not anymore for the most part. My favorite smell is pizza but I keep it all veggie and thin crust if I have any now.

I never thought about making breakfast in a rice cooker. I don't have a rice cooker mostly because I didn't know how well they would work. Does the oatmeal have a better flavor when made in a rice cooker? Is it like a slow cooker, but for rice? I've been curious.
I will also grab dinner foods for breakfast when they are available. That's not too often though. Before diabetes, I would go for Pizza if it was in the fridge. I'm afraid I contaminated my kids--they love pizza for breakfast or anything else they can ge their hands on. My youngest son (15) makes a mean banana bread that he's very poud of. He makes that sometimes and with a bit of cream cheese, it's very good. I remember. I just can't eat it anymore but the smell of it reminds me of how good it is and strangely enough, that's enough for me to enjoy the bread too (in my head).

My breakfast depends on my mood and my plans for the day. Some candidates:

Steel cut oats in my rice cooker (New favorite -- I think I'll go start some for today.)

Cheerios w/ rice milk. W/ frozen blueberries if I have any.

Brown rice w/ soy sauce.

Whole grain toast w/ applesauce and a sprinkle of cinnamon-sugar.

(rare treat) blueberry pancakes w/ pure maple syrup

If there are any interesting leftovers from dinner they're fair game, also.

My son likes me to make him those egg sandwiches. I put it on whole grain white bread with 2 slices of turkey bacon. He usually eats two sandwiches at a time, but he is also a very active, athletic type teen.

My breakfast might be considered boring since I have the same thing nearly every day! It's something I came up with when I was a child and it's been a family favorite ever since. We call it a "Pie Egg Sandwich"!

Take one egg, beat it, then cook like a fried egg in non-stick skillet, using just a smidgen of butter. Slap it between 2 pieces of bread and voila!! Breakfast which is easy to eat on the run, sits very well on a sensitive tummy, and not too bad calorie & fat wise. I always used to put a slice of cheese on it too, but I'm not willing to go with the extra fat & calories these days.

Nutrition count:
calories -- 234
carbs -- 26
fat -- 9
protein -- 11

It works for me! I also drink 4 oz. of coca-cola with it to get me a bit more awake! And yes, it truly is only 4 oz.!! A 12 oz. bottle always lasts me for 3 days.

Take care,
Carolyn

Yeah, one of my favorites at the time was Yoplait customer style really thick and creamy. I read an article about hidden suger in food in which High Fructose was a big one and there it was listed as a second ingredient, even though on the container it says sweetened with Aspartime (not sure of spelling). So I really look for that in food.

My husband eats cheerios every morning. It is supposed to be one of th healthiest cereals. I have diabetes and I find that cereals and I don't get along well any more, but when I ate cereal, it was cheerios, kashis or shredded wheat (frosted) that I liked best. I never realized that yogurt had corn syrup. That's good to know.

I like to switch them up. I use cheddar sometimes but montery jack worked good for me too.

My favorite breakfast to Trader Joe's Organic cherrio's with a cup of sugar free blueberry or peach yogurt. I find on the yogurt to be careful of the hidden High Fructcose Corn Syrup.

Tonya,
That sound good. I'll have to try that one. Any particular cheese flavor that goes best? I've done the omelette with the 1 egg/egg white, spinach and cheddar or parmesan but I'm willing to try others if they are tasty. I've never tried turkey sausage (actually I've never seen it). I may have to go look for some.. I've done turkey bacon though--I imagine they are similar.

I eat high fiber cereal most days same for this morning but when I want to splurge I go for a 1 egg 2 egg white omelette with turkey sausage, onions, 2% shredded cheese and spinach.

I thought it might be interesting to discover what we eat for breakfasts.

Today I had:
Cream Cheese spread, Wellsley Farms, 2 tbsp
Egg substitute, liquid (Egg Beaters), 0.5 cup Peppers, frozen, chopped, 0.25 cup
weight watcher bagel, 1 serving
salmon, (lox) 2 oz

I make an omelette with the egg, pepper and salmon and serve it with the weight watcher bagel w/cream cheese.
