Default breakfast options


As some of you may know, my husband was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes so I try to find things that he will eat and doesn't feel deprived. This is also really good for regulating your blood sugar. There are 2 recipes, one is for Breakfast Apple Pie and the other is Breakfast Pumpkin Pie. Both are really good. I like the pumpkin while my husband's favorite is the apple pie. I'll also crumble some walnuts and dried fruit on the top along with some extra cinnamon. You can portion it out and have breakfast ready for the week. I would give my husband a full cup serving versus the 1/2 cup and he was satisfied with that.

For both recipes I substitute Stevia for the brown sugar and the milk option I use is Almond milk. It is extremely filling and will keep you full for a while. An added bonus is that your house will smell like pie when you wake up in the morning. (I always start cooking this at night so it will be ready in the morning). They give you the nutritional info but I always ended up with more servings than they said I would so the calorie count for me was actually lower...about 115 calories per half cup.

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

I will rise from this defeat and claw my way back.

You don't have to be great to start. You have to start to be great.
