I like an almond flour muffin for breakfast. Very little carbs, tastes good and is filling.

I love cooking with almond flour, I really like the texture. I make oatcakes with it substituting most of the flour.

I rotate my breakfasts right now:

Greek yogurt, with homemade, grain free granola, and either frozen berries or spiced fruit compote (no sugar added)

Sprouted grain bread, cream cheese, and Everything But the Bagel

Home made oatcakes (these are obviously higher carb, but low sugar)

Or half an English muffin, canadian bacon, fried egg, cheese and Everything But the Bagel

Good to know. I do also prefer the full fat. Greek yogurt seems to have lower carbs than regular.

I almost always buy plain, versatility to use as sour cream, and not loaded with sugar.

IF I buy flavored it is one of the sugar free versions. Those are usually fat free too, and I would prefer sugar free, full fat. But everything is give and take, depending on your needs/enjoyment.

Plain Greek and Icelandic style yogurts are lower in carbs in all milk varients than the “regular” yogurt equivalents.

Cottage cheese, but be careful as some have low carb and others do not!

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

Thanks for the info - I'm not overly concerned with stripping all carbs from my diet - I just don't want carb overload. My bigger concern is fats and sugars. But of course different people have different goals! So this is good information.

Lactose is a sugar by the way. Nothing wrong with healthy fats. It's fats and sugars combined which are especially bad and by sugars I also mean refined carbs such as white flour. Fats and sugars combined taste the best but are the worst for us. Ice cream is a good example of that.
