At first glance, I thought you said you had it with three CUPS of strawberries.  How did your BG numbers react to the cereal?

The cereal seems a 'tad' expensive at $15 for less than 1 lb.  How were your blood sugar numbers after eating the cereal?

A break down on the carb content of my breakfast looks like this:

Hot cereal, 1/3 cup - 9g carbs
3 Med. (1.25") Strawberries sliced - 2.8g carbs
Heavy Whipping Cream cut with H2O - 0 carbs
Artificial Sweetener - 0 carbs

Total Carbs - 11.8 Carbs

I had to leave shortly after eating this morning, so I did not test....but I will tomorrow and follow up with my fasting BS and then 1hr and 2hr readings after eating.. at less than 12g's I expect a very small change.....but the proof is in the meter!

As far as price, since I have found no other hot cereal that I can eat, it is more of a decision to add this to my menu...to me having a variety of meals is key to my long-term success with LCHF and that my friends is priceless!

I agree that having variety is important.  In comparison to other hot cereals on the market, this one is relatively low in carbs.  I remember when I was first diagnosed and not aware of how important cutting carbs would be to my overall diabetic health, I bought some of the Quaker oatmeal packets.  Ha!  I learned better though :)

Sadly this is not available on amazon.in, and yes the price is too steep for me as well.  :(

Odd?
I just checked the link in my first post and it is available using that link?

I cannot help with the price, but if others want to try it the link above worked for me just now!

Ok, I again had this for breakfast, but this time I tested.  Here is what I ate...

A break down on the carb content of my breakfast looks like this:

Hot cereal, 1/3 cup - 9g carbs
3 Med. (no bigger than 1.25") Strawberries sliced - 2.8g carbs
Heavy Whipping Cream cut with H2O - 0 carbs
Artificial Sweetener - 0 carbs

Total Carbs - 11.8 Carbs

Fasting BS - 107
@ 1Hr. - 133
@ 2Hr. - 125

A bit higher than I thought, but still ok!  I will only add two strawberries from now on, that will give me a little comfort room!

If it is grain-free, what are the ingredients?

Go to the Amazon link and click on the photo of the label showing ingredients.  It is a bit pricey for my budget, but I see how it can work.

Thanks  I think I'll pass, it's a little pricey for me.
