Help! Low-GI Breakfast?

Postby mrs c » Tue Apr 24, 2007 2:59 pm

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good low gi breakfast food? I heard eggs are quite good but I couldnt stomach those at 7am ... maybe a low-gi cereal? I have special K at the moment but am usually starving by 10am!

I have FibreX cereal quite a bit. It is very low carb so it must be low GI also. You can get it online or in some health food shops. Very yummy, and you can also make muffins, pancakes etc with it :D

I love Bran Plus with boiling water! Sometimes I mash bananas into it and add sultanas, just depends how many calories you want! Can't go wrong with a good high-fibre bread like Noble Rise Sunflower & Poppyseed! Put something like ham, cheese & tomato on it so you've got a bit of protein too!

I eat something called Vogel's clusters (they are kind of museli/oats and they're yummm! Coming from someone who HATES oats btw :D ) or soy and linseed bran, also Vogels brand. If I eat either of these, even if its at 7am, I will be absolutely full until lunchtime, and they are really good for you too :) I also used to eat Uncle Toby's Plus cereal, thats yummy too, lots of different flavours, and very filling

All bran is one of the lowest GI cereals I know of, and it's high in fibre to boot. Just make sure you drink a glass or two of water when you eat it or it blocks you up something shocking :oops: (Its the same with any really high fibre food)

Anything that is not highly processed and has no sugar added. Porridge/oats, a proper muesli etc. I usually have 2 vitabrits with fruit. Or you could do toast (wholemeal or wholegrain).

15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

I read in Slimming and Health magazine that cheerios with skim milk is a really good option because they have everything in them like corn, rice, oats, wheat and barley. I'm not a big healthy cereal person either (although I'm trying to get into oats for winter) but cheerios are really yummy...kinda like a milder version of nutri-grain (and WAY less sugar). I have them every morning and I'm usually hungry by 10.30am but if I add some yoghurt and sometimes kiwi fruit I'll be alright until about lunchtime. There's a new "Plus Protein" cereal out now too and not sure what it's like but looks alright.

Dietcoke, my 4 year old LOVES cheerios :D They are good for you even though they are yummy. How great is that? :)

I love Cheerios too :D
They don't fill me up enough but they are sooo yummy and you're right, lower in sugar than a lot of other cereals!

Hiya dietcoke I have tried the new Protein Plus cereal and to be honest I didn't like it...the "protein" enriched sticks that are in there to me just tasted like I had a gob full of sugar....way to sweet for me and it just tasted so bland.....the apple pieces were not very nice either...it is certainly a cereal that I won't buy again....however it may appeal to other taste buds!!

Hehe I heard on the radio this morning that some cereals out there are nutritionally more like confectionary than cereal! Had a good chuckle at that :lol:

Yeah it's almost unheard of for a cereal to be yummy and not contain a lot of sugar but cheerios are awesome.

ACTUALLY I just saw an ad today that "Choice" magazine did a test of various cereals and are going to publish the best and worst ones. It's also going to be shown on one of those current affairs programs...not sure which one or when...hehehe...not too helpful there sorry.
