    Decided to give a try and I like it Very Happy I've bought the honey and pecan granola and use almond milk and a good slug of double cream (well I do need to keep the calories up Wink) makes for a quick breakfast now the school holidays have started and I need to be out early morning to look after my grandkids bitenails  

    BG results 5.7 fasting, 6.5 at ninety minutes 6.0 at two hours Very Happy

    I am going to give this a try, if the BG numbers stand up, it could be another great piece of nosh to add to the armoury. This could prove very useful when my slave err...Jan is away, I hate cooking in the morning. run

Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Go for it Eddie but you must realise it's expensive at £5.75 for 340g which is 8 servings, did you know that Kellogg's cornflakes are only £2 for a 750g packet and using Sids portion control that would equate to 44 servings Shocked
