Low-carb "cereal"?
I'm not a big breakfast person and sometimes I can't face bacon and egg.:dunno:

I've started making my own low carb "cereal"! :laugh:

It's hazelnuts, pecans, flaked almonds, a spoon of almond butter, flax meal, sugarfree chocolate chips and a few (7 max) blueberries, with almond milk.

It's amazingly like cereal!

I'm not doing induction or a strict plan. :)

Does anyone else eat something similar? Any suggestions for tweaks?

I use a mixture of any of the following:

Coconut flour
Almond flour
Ground flax ( always use this for base)
Heavy cream
Vanilla essence
Coconut oil

I then microwave for a minute or two (just to warm it not cook it) and find it is an adequate and filling substitute for a porridge type breakfast and with plenty of healthy fats it fills you up :D

Oops I just realised I need to adjust my stats (upwards by 4lb :-( ) after a blowout over the holidays

Might consider hemp seeds in the mix, too. They're nutritionally dense, very high in fat, and I've seen them in our local Costco. ;)

I've made "cookies" and "meal bars" from mixtures not too different from what you're using.

My faux oatmeal...

2 Tbsp. flax, 2 Tbsp. TVP, 1/2 cup water.
Microwave 90 seconds.
Add whatever flavorings you like...
some sweetener, vanilla, cinnamon, butter, sugar.

Very filling.
