My breakfast most mornings is a smoothie consisting if 1/2 small banana, 2 C frozen spinach (I buy fresh spinach and toss it in a bag and freeze it) and about 1 C frozen mixed berries. Add enough water to blend.

And they are very filling.
My post that you quoted specifically said the cole slaw has home made vinaigrette. No mayo. No sugar. No sweetener. Cabbage is a wise nutritional choice, and it fits into a low carb plan.

The OP may decide not choose avocado no matter how healthy it is because they have chosen a low carb diet. 17 carbs is a lot for one meal. The low carb diets I'm aware of limit carbs to 20 - 50 per day.

75% of the carbohydrates in avocados are metabolically inert fibers.

A large avocado has about 20 carbs. About 15 of those are fiber resulting in a net count of 5 carbs to stimulate insulin, which is borderline negligible, especially given the low glycemic load, a result of avocado's accomanying high fat content.

And that is a lot of avocado for one meal. Most people would consume half of that, or 2.5 net carbs, in an average meal.

Avocados are a low carb food in terms of its effect on metabolism and hormone release. If trying to lose weight, I would be more concerned with keeping track of avocado's calorie count than it's gross carb count.

I wish I liked yogurt.

I try it every few years, the good stuff too, just to see if my taste has changed, and I always hate it. Bah.

Do you eat seafood? I have shrimp sometimes too, it's quick.
I love those salmon burgers, I used to buy them at Sam’s Club but unfortunately they have stopped selling them . I would grill two of them and put a little spicy mayo on top, it made a perfect low carb breakfast or lunch.

Trader Joe's has good frozen salmon burgers. Not everyone has TJ's near them, I know.

I don't think I have a Sam's Club.

I eat can of tuna or other fish in morn. Oats & yogurt occasionally. But 2 cooked Trader Joe's Omega 3 Organic eggs & a can of tuna really help Stop appetite.

I have GI issues so must limit carbs & even too many oats rile my gut ala' a horse. TJ's Basmati brown rice w/ their low sodium Chick broth (I know I sound as an ad for TJ's, lol) but serIOUSLY it works for me so I'll keep it up.
