    Default Don't want to eat breakfast!

    I guess I am in a rut. I don't necessarily eat breakfast foods for
    breakfast and I usually don't eat my breakfast until noon or 1:00. I find I
    keep putting it off until later and later because I just don't have the
    desire to eat. Yes, I am usually hungry. But nothing sounds good to eat.

    For a while I ate toast. But I don't really like toast. Never did. Then I
    switched to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but since it is high in carbs the amount
    I could eat of it was very small. I actually got pretty sick of it. I
    never really liked cereal but for some reason I found I could eat it and it
    didn't bother me. Then I switched to polenta with tomato sauce. But I
    guess I got burned out on that.

    A couple of times a week I will have cottage cheese but that doesn't seem to
    work so well for me. The problem? I need some carbs. Yes there are carbs
    in that but seemingly not enough. I try to add a few pretzels or corn chips
    but I can never seem to get the right carb count. If I don't get enough
    carbs, I spike just as I would with too many carbs. Grrr...

    I might eat bacon every once in a while but for the most part I don't like
    meat. I don't digest vegetables very well. I can do beans. I have a case
    of canned kidney beans. Maybe I'll try eating those. I do digest mashed
    potatoes very well but I am getting sick of those because I have them for
    dinner or a bedtime snack fairly often.

    Ever get into a rut where you just don't want to eat? I know not eating
    would be the worst thing for me to do. I do have to take insulin and pills
    when I get up.

    I have a similar problem with breakfast, in that what I really like to have
    is mostly verboten. It's 9:30 and I haven't eaten breakfast yet. (Luckily my
    BG was 85 when I got up, and I don't seem to suffer from dawn phenomenon
    these days...) Have you considered adding some fruit to either cottage
    cheese or yogurt? I like cottage cheese with an apple diced into it, and
    half a cup with a 100gm apple is about 20 gms of carb. (Which means I can't
    have it for breakfast, but oh well, lunch is okay.) Greek yogurt with some
    thawed frozen blueberries or strawberries and sweetener of your choice might
    also work.

    I've tried canned pears with cottage cheese. Didn't work. I can't stand
    most other fruits. Don't like yogurt at all. And the problem with dairy is
    I can have it only twice a week.
