Not for everyone. I’m sure the OP has reasons.



I like low carb protein shakes. I make them myself but I keep Atkins French vanilla for when I have to run out quickly.

Any kind of broth or soup you like, yogurt, berries, melon, sliced cucumber, sliced tomatoes, vegetable stir fry in oil or butter, nuts, avocado with lemon juice or sour cream, a cup of coffee with cream, canned smoked fish or any kind of fish you like. Plain lightly salted rice cakes are only 7 g apiece, and you can spread some butter or peanut butter on that and have it with a cup of tea or coffee.

My favorite breakfast is a smoothie made from non fat Greek yogurt, a tbsp of almond butter, a sprinkling of walnuts, a few dashes of turmeric, a squirt of honey (but you could use stevia - I'm not a purist - LOL), and a splash of milk or water. YUM. I feel like I'm having a DQ blizzard and it's super bad - except it's not!

You may want to compare the low fat to the whole milk yogurt. The lowest and healthiest IMO is the greek whole milk yogurt. I like it with berries such as strawberries and some kind of fiber. Since I don't do regular granola, I add flax meal or Psyllium Husk for a nutty and crunchy texture.

YMMV of course and the labels tell the whole story.

Typical Carb Counts for Plain Yogurt
A 6-ounce serving of plain yogurt contains these typical carb counts:

Whole milk Greek yogurt: 7 grams of carbohydrate
Whole milk yogurt: 8 grams of carbohydrate.
Low-fat yogurt: 12 grams of carbohydrate
Nonfat or skim milk yogurt: 13 grams of carbohydrate

Someone told me about that chia pudding mentioned previously. I soaked the chia seeds overnight in almond milk and, in the morning I added chopped nuts and cold almond milk. It was pretty good, like a pudding.

Another breakfast I make is from bone broth. I just take a chicken carcass and put it into the slow cooker overnight and the next day. Then there's broth for breakfast and I can add chopped chicken or vegetables. Sometime you might want to make miso soup out of it using dried seaweed (it's expensive but lasts forever) and a bit of miso.

Yes, you are absolutely correct. Non fat usually translates to high carb. I avoid all non/low fat items for that very reason.

So do I. That's how I've noticed that non/low fat equates to high carb.

Well my fat free yogurt has 7 g carbs. That's not too high for most people.

I do prefer full fat, grass fed greek yogurt, but Costco doesn't carry that and it is more than double the cost, so it's a treat.
