Most mornings I have a small snack before I workout and a 1 block snack after I workout. However, on Sunday I like to have a big breakfast to start the day. This is one of my favorites because it keeps me full for most of the morning. Steel cut oats are great on the Zone because of their low glycemic index. I have recently found a frozen version at Trader Joe's that are broken into 1 cup portion sizes which is exactly 2 blocks of carbs! Otherwise you can make a larger batch and freeze in the portion sizes you wish.
Oatmeal and Bacon Breakfast- 2 blocks
1 cup steel cut oatmeal (2 blocks carb/ 1 block fat)
1 egg scrambled (1 block protein)
3 strips turkey bacon ( 1 block protein/ 1 block fat)

WOW. That sounds filling. I love it!
TWO (?!) Slices of Bread= 1 block
Hey all, I found a great bread- 2 pieces equals 1 carb block with the fiber
Orowheat "Light". It is on the smaller side about 4 inches. Oh, how to close my sandwich :) and get more with your open faces.
Doesn't taste low carb or too fibery. Enjoy!
I love breakfast and I looove steel cut oats but I thought a cup was 3 blocks of carbs?
The Trader Joe's frozen steel cut oats are premeasured into pretty close to a 1 cup serving and according to its label is 2 blocks.
