I always have a protein, many times have something low carb (whole wheat torilla, whole wheat toast, or 1/2 cup of cheerios), as well as a piece of fresh fruit (usually a banana).
I'm also Type 2 diabetic, 100% diet controlled, so not only is b-fast very important for me, but keeping it balanced and having protein is very important for me as well.
Once in a blue moon I will have a couple pieces of turkey bacon along with a homemade (small) fresh blueberry pancake (no butter or syrup, just the pancake with some fresh blueberries in it), but that's a huge treat and only once a month at best.
That was very helpful! I try to watch my carbs because I've had gestational diabetes 3 times, my dad has type 2, and I have two nephews (my sister's kids) with Type 1, so there's a good chance I could end up with Type 2 when I am older.
