One of the few things I really missed once I became diabetic was breakfast cereal. One cup of most non-sugar cereals is about 25 grams of carbs. But once you add milk to it you're up around 40 grams, which is way too much for breakfast or snack! Also, my nutritionist doesn't want me to have milk for breakfast or before bed because it's pretty much all lactose sugar and makes a diabetic's blood sugar crazy those times of the day. But that's when I want my cereal!!!

But recently I found this: Hood® | Calorie Countdown

It's milk that is only 3 grams of carbs!!!! I can finally have cereal and milk whenever I want it!! And it's available at my regular grocery store. It tastes just like milk, I really can't tell the difference. It's a little pricey but definitely worth it!

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

I am a mildly lactose intolerant person so I know your pain! When all you want is cereal with REAL milk and can't have it there isn't a substitute that will do! I'm glad you found something you can have.

I'm lactose intolerant too (along with 85% of the world's population) and I take Lactaid pills. I never had to give up dairy!

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
