Thanks for your answer. He isn't a breakfast eater at all, really, and I would like to find something that would work. We both leave the house to start our commute to work at about 6.30 in the morning (getting up at 5.00) so finding time is hard. I think that if I could develop something that he could take with him to eat once he gets to work would be good. I take hard boiled eggs (and sometimes a jar of my home-made primal mayonnaise to go with!) but he's not a hard-boiled egg guy, really!
I shall devote some thought to what can be creatively done with coconut oil.
I love your "I just kept steadily increasing...." God, that sounds familiar! And the pre-diabetes remark is worth looking into as well.
Take care and thanks again.
