When I'm in a hurry (such as this morning) I make my own version of a smooothie -- Blend a Raw Egg, 3/4 cup 1 % milk, 1/2 cup fruit, small yogart. Makes a nice drink and covers my protein. Much lower carbs.
One of my favourite easy to eat breakfast is "Eggs to Go" Scramble one or two eggs, add tomatos, feta, onions -- whatever you want and stuff into half a small pita. Simple, fast and great tasting.
I'd be more concerned with the white sugar that's the "frosted" part.
As for the high carbs, I try to stay with the complex carbs when I can.In my case, I try to eat most of my carbs in the morning ( I usually run 3-5 miles every other morning)- whether it's a bowl whole grain oatmeal with a banana or whole wheat pita bread stuffed with whole eggs or egg whites.
But that's just me, I've achieved my "target" weight and I'm doing more of a maintenance diet. My doctor has me testing every 3 months for cholesterol & glucose levels.
