Tried a smoothie for breakfast this morning, rather than my typical eggs and chicken sausage and even though it was absolutely packed with protein, I’m not sure it was the right choice.  My head felt like it was swimming while I drove Jude to Gymboree and all the rest of the morning.  While I was pregnant and had Gestational Diabetes, I was warned to not eat fruit at breakfast because it dis-regulates a lot of people’s blood sugar for the rest of the day.  I’ll have to try it a few more times to be sure that this is the case.  Oatmeal seems to make me irregular and bloated (a lot of Celiacs cannot handle oats even if they are certified gluten free) and so if fruit is off the breakfast menu too, eggs seem to be the right choice.
