    I sometimes have a pot of Isey Skyr
    http://www.iseyskyr.co.uk/blog/isey-skyr-in-aldi-/201
    The vanilla and mango ones are nice and come out around 5g carbs per 170g pot. They have no significant effect on my sugars
    On the other hand, the strawberry one sends my sugars wild while the blueberry one just isnt very nice
    I was in Lidl today and found they have now also started to stock Sky in blueberry, vanilla, strawberry and raspberry flavours that are all about 3g carbs per 100g - havent tried them yet
    I sometimes have half of an Adonis bar crumbled into the Skyr, which makes it a bit like granola

    Like the OP I am sick of having same thing for brekkie except mine is cereal. I have started having greek yogurt and berries which is excellent as well as poached egg on wholegrain toast.

    I do miss my porridge though and have been reading up a bit about it. There are 3 main types of oats, steel cut, rolled and instant. I know the instants are not that great but the difference between steel cut and rolled seems negligible though, certainly carbs wise.

    I normally have rolled oats, Scotts Porridge oats, to be precise, is there any benefit having steel cut oats, in others experience. I find that as a type 1, these do spike my bg a bit but not excessivley
