I just had the best (and unconventional) breakfast ever--a cold cheeseburger salad!!

I took a leftover cheeseburger patty, crumbled it cold onto some romaine lettuce, topped with dressing and VOILA! Heavenly and very filling!

My DH eats salad for breakfast every single day, and now i know why. It's very easy to prepare and you can add whatever you like onto it (he likes deli sliced turkey and roast beef)

You can be very creative with leftovers!

Another breakfast I have enjoyed in the past is a hot flax meal cereal. Take a tablespoon or two of flax meal, top with boiling water, mix in some splenda or a scoop of protein powder. Yummie! Nice during cold weather

I make LC flaxmeal muffins (recipe from the recipe forum). I had them on induction and they didn't kick me out of ketosis or slow me down, but YMMV.

I also had flaxmeal "cereal" (1/2 c boiling water poured into 1/4 c flaxmeal, let sit for a couple of minutes and then add some splenda and about 1 tbsp. cream). Now I add a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder with the flaxmeal.

I also make "Protein Pancakes" from Dana Carpender's LC cookbook in addition to the above, as well as making western omelets. I'm going to experiment with Frittatas (an Italian quiche, sort of) next week.

I used to eat a lot of the sweet induction bfast from the recipe room. I just bought some ricotta to try the mock cream of wheat. I also eat the flax meal cereal and have started making quiche to last all week. I also take left overs and cut them up to make my omlets or scam eggs in the morning. The other day I cut up a chicken thigh and some onion, cooked them, added the eggs, then grated cheese and ate with sour cream on top. yummy. I find onions lend a lot of flavor and a little isn't too bad and goes a long way. I have also seen that some make cheesecake and have piece on the run. I can't make it cuz I'll eat too much. I often make custard too and pour it into little cups and store in the fridge. You can also look into the yogurt fast approach to low carb bfast, there's something about the yogurt that doesn't have all carbs count. I'm talking plain, whole milk yogurt that you sweeten yourself with sf syrup and splenda. I also purchased some chopped hazel nuts at Trader Joe's. I add a tiny bit and they add a good crunch and flavor to lots of things and don't count for too many carbs.

I wanted to add - I just made Spongebob's Flax Bread, and it is awesome. I spread a little cream cheese on it, and it was soooo good. One portion has about 1 carb after all the fiber. Search on Spongebob to find it, and enjoy!

Here is spongebob's post:

spongebob's flaxmeal bread

dry
===
2c flaxmeal (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1c nuts/etc. *
1/2c Splenda (box, not packets)
1tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda

*i usually use chopped almonds or pecans (can't remember which right now!) that net out at like 1ca per 1/4c - take a look, you'll find them! i also sometimes will mix 1/2c nuts with 1/2c unsweetened coconut (also lc!). get creative here!!!

wet
===
5 eggs (beaten)
8T sf syrup w/Splenda **
5T vegetable oil (i use canola)

**so far i've tried hazelnut or banana, depending on what i use above for nuts/etc.

pre-heat oven to 350F

mix together all dry ingredients in a bowl, then in a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients. fold dry ingredients into wet and mix well (don't beat like crazy, but be sure it's mixed well or the eggs do funny things!).

immediately transfer batter to Pam/etc-sprayed loaf pan (i've had better results not waiting the 5min. i've seen suggested - baking soda is active immediately when wet, right?).

bake at 350F for 35min. or until it passes the knife/toothpick/etc. test.

remove from pan immediately and cool before slicing. i slice into 16 as follows: slice lengthwise down the center, then cut each half into two equal halves on the short axis and then in half again.

store these in tupperware/rubbermaid in the refrigerator - they keep just fine for the 8 days that i have them around.

i usually slice mine in half and toast in the toaster oven and have with butter or cream cheese - although it's great cold, too!

i've really worked on this recipe and i hope you enjoy it! i don't like things too greasy, eggy or sweet, so i've tried to address that with this recipe. be sure and experiment yourself and remember to have fun!

has anyone ever tried to batter and fry...

the ham and cheese roll-ups? It would be sort of like Chicken courdon blu..except without the chicken. Or if you wanted, you could add some chicken. I think it would be great for breakfast! You could do a whole bunch and keep them frozen until you needed one and just nuke it! Sort of like hot pockets!

I am gonna try this tonight and I will let ya'll know how it works.
It should work in theory but we shall see!
Boy, I'm a genious!

My post went to cyberland....has anyone

ever tried to batter and fry ham & cheese roll-ups?
I would be so easy to pop one in the microwave in the mornings.
It would be sort of like hot pockets...

You could stull ham with cream cheese, cheddar, swiss, chicken, seasonings, etc. and then dip in batter and deep fry.
EWW sounds yummy, doesn't it?

I am gonna try this tonight and will report on it tomorrow.
It should work...at least in theory!

Breakfast ideas instead of bacon/eggs?

Hi, I'm new! I was a long time lurker at another forum but I couldn't register because my AOL account kept doing something strange to the activation link. So all I could do was lurk because it wouldn't allow you to join from a free account. I am SO glad I found this place because I have LOTS of questions that have just been bottled up inside of me for months!!!

Okay, first one - what else can I have for breakfast besides bacon and eggs? I love b/e but during the week I don't have time to cook that in the mornings when I'm rushing to get to work and get 3 kids out the door also. I need something simple, fast and tastes good! I'm on Induction so it has to fit within those limitations.

Thanks!

I like to make protein shakes. How about cottage cheese? What about some meat?

This one requires a minute of cooking but is very fast & a big favorite on the PP board. There are lots of variations. You can probably make it the night before & just nuke it.
Recipe by "nasus"

Faux Cream of Wheat

1/2 cup riccotta cheese
4 tbs cream
1 egg

mix and heat over med heat untill grainy

then add a little vanilla, cinamon, and fake sugar to taste

I thought that it tasted a little like a custard, and i made it in the micro not stove so i wonder what it would be like on the stove
Really good!!!

I gat so many recipy ideas from all over i forget where they come from. Is the rice pudding in the PP book? if not that is a good one too.

1/2 c cottage cheese
1 pkt of fake sugar (blue is best)
drible of vanilla
dribble of cream
shake of cinamon

sounds like the other but the taste is very different.

is cottage cheese allowed?

Ive heard of cream cheese pancakes, take some cream cheese melt it a bit so that its not lumpy and add one egg. Im not sure if cinnamon is allowed but you can add that to the batter and make a syrup of cinnamon and butter.

Cottage cheese is not allowed on induction. Save that recipe for a few weeks from now.

Leftovers from the previous night's dinner. I love cold roasted chicken and veggies for breakfast!

Salads - diced meat, salad fixens, and some full fat dressing.

Make the crustless quiche on the weekend, and then have a slice of it during the week for breakfast.

Make yourself a batch of Dobie Muffins (you'll find the recipe in the recipe room) and grab one of them.

Alternatively, I've just started making the "Mock Danish" from Linda's Low-Carb recipes http://webpages.charter.net/genaws3/ :

MOCK DANISH
2 oz. cream cheese
1 egg
2-4 t. Splenda
1/2 t. vanilla
pinch of cinnamon

In a small, microwaveable bowl, soften the cream cheese on HIGH 30 seconds. Beat well with a spoon until creamy. Add the egg and beat very well until creamy; mix in remaining ingredients. Use a small rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl so that all the batter is in the bottom. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds; rotate bowl (do not stir) and cook another 30 seconds. If center still looks too runny, cook another 30 seconds. May take up to 2 1/2 minutes total, depending on your microwave. Center should be a bit soft for the danish filling effect. Run a small rubber spatula around the danish, then under it to release from bowl. Transfer to a small plate. Cool until just warm or cool completely before eating.

Makes 1 serving (3.5 carbs each)

MOCK DANISH VARIATION 2
3 oz. cream cheese
1 egg
4 t. Splenda
1/2 t. vanilla
Pinch of lemon rind or 1 t. lemon juice

Follow instructions above. Makes 1 serving (6 carbs each)

MOCK DANISH VARIATION 3
2-3 oz. cream cheese
1 egg
2-4 t. Splenda
1/2 t. vanilla
Drop of almond extract

Follow instructions above. Makes 1 serving (4-6 carbs each, depending on the amount of cream cheese and Splenda used)

I never understood the comment about not having enough time. Can't you just get up 15 minutes earlier? During induction if you are a traditional breakfast eater you don't have a lot of choices that don't involve eggs. You can, however, prepare them in so many ways (i.e. hard-boiled, omelets, fried, deviled, etc). You can also have ham or sausage instead of bacon.

Some of my faves...

Leftovers!

Spoon some homemade chunky chicken salad onto a few slices of cucumber

A half cup of plain full-fat yogurt (I love Brown Cow!) sweetened with sf syrup---add in a spoonful of flax meal for added fiber (not really for induction tho!)

Flax meal "cereal"--mix a couple tablespoons of flax meal with hot water...Sweetened with splenda to taste. A scoop of protein powder helps a bit with the texture too

I know what you mean about the time crunch in the AM. To help us, we scramble a lot of eggs and just keep them in a plastic container in the fridge. Then you can just take out what you need and heat in the microwave. Throw on some cheese, salsa, guacomole or whatever sounds good at the moment and eat up! Almost like an omelet. We do the same thing with sausage, bacon or whatever kind of meat. Quick and easy.

I also like chicken (or tuna or salmon) salad. For what it's worth, we make a bunch of those, too, and keep them in individual containers in the fridge - good for breakfast or lunch.

I also make muffins every few weeks and freeze them. We make some 'icing' out of cream cheese, Splenda and cinnamon to spread on top. Not something you can eat on induction, but good for OWL.

Good luck!

Ah, here's a trick my grandma taught me. The woman was a GENIUS and could cook anything in a microwave. When I lived with her for 8 months, I never once saw her use her stove, except on holidays.

FAST Scrambled Eggs, total prep time 2-3 minutes:

You need:
A two-cup pyrex measuring cup
Pam
Eggs

Spray the pyrex cup with pam. Put eggs and a tbsp. of water in the cup and stir it up with a fork to get them scrambled up. Microwave the whole thing, cup and all, for about 1 minute until the eggs look like they are done (not runny looking, and kind of fluffy).

The eggs just slide out of the measuring cup in a patty shape. I like to put a slice of cheese and Canadian bacon, ham, or a sausage patty on the eggs and zap it for another 30 seconds. And if you're feeling particularly ambitious, you can put chopped green pepper and onion in the egg mixture before you cook it and have a Denver omelette type of thing.

It's an Egg McMuffin without the muffin. Your kids would probably like it too, you could just put it on buttered toast or english muffins for them. And if you eat LC bread, you can make yourself a sandwich with it that you can take and eat on the run.

Flaxmeal hot cereal with cream and Splenda is a good option, and Keto also makes LC cold cereal that's good with 1/4 c. cream.

I don't recommend the cold cereal or LC bread if you are on induction though. It caused me to stall.

Who says that breakfast has to been bacon and eggs? How about leftovers from the night before? But, if you want eggs, try the crustless quiche lorraine from the recipe room as it's fabulous. Freeze it in individual portions and take one out the night before (thawing in the refrigerator) for a quick breakfast. You can do the same with a frittata.

See, with me, I feel weird eating anything but "breakfast foods" at breakfast time and "dinner foods" at dinnertime. My family would OCCASIONALLY have pancakes and eggs for dinner, but for the most part when we ate breakfast, it was breakfast type foods.

I've kind of branched off and started eating tomatoes with breakfast and if I'm in a hurry I eat leftovers, but that's the extent of it. Eating regular breakfast food makes me feel normal and in touch with the rest of the world, which is important because I'm the only LCer I know and sometimes I feel isolated by my WOE.
