I need something new for breakfast...i am sick of eggs!!
I am trying to drop the last 15 pounds and am sick of eggs but still want to be low carb. I have considered eating a low sugar cereal for breakfast, it has carbs but at least it's in the am and i have all day to burn it off. Any suggestions on other breakfast foods?

JuliaL 07-13-2003 02:43 PM

I have 1/2 c of strawberries with cream or half and half and splenda. I also have a couple of sausage links or patties. Of course you can't eat strawberries during induction, but you said you're at the last 15 lbs., so I assume you're past induction. I'm doing OWL with about 25-30 carbs per day.

I have the blue bunny yogurt for b-fast ;)

marcimedic 07-13-2003 02:54 PM

where do you find the blue bunny yogurt??

(this is so versatile. You can leave out the cocoa, nuts, and protein powder and just add vanilla and it is still very good. ) My timing for my micro is different for this. I use 20 seconds to melt and 45 seconds to cook....you want it like custard not scrambled eggs........

2 ounces cream cheese
1 egg
2 Splenda packets -- if needed
the keto cocoa is sweet enough
1 1/2 tablespoons keto cocoa
3 tablespoons protein powder --
whey, or ground almonds or both

How to Prepare:

Put cream cheese in microwave for 30 seconds. Then put in all the rest. Stir with a whisk until well blended. Put in microwave for 1 minute. This is like chocolate sponge pudding with thick custard in the middle!

I found this on the recipe board. I use regular Hersheys's cocoa.


5 eggs
1 tablespoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

How to Prepare:

Mix together eggs, heavy
cream and nutmeg. Melt
butter in small pan of
Pour egg mixture into hot
butter- stir till done. Sprinkle
with a little more nutmeg.
I like mine with a few
teaspoons of milk- like a
hot cereal. Yields 1 serving.

This makes a rich, warm,
sweet mock custard that is
heavenly. Does NOT taste
like eggs!

spazcat 07-13-2003 02:55 PM

The only place that I can find it is wal mart.

chefmichel 07-14-2003 12:45 AM

Keto cereals are pretty good, the keto crisp is just like rice crispies except a little chewy at the end

07-14-2003 01:03 AM

EveH. Do you really use 1 Tbsp nutmeg and no sweetner at all?

GinaT1213 07-14-2003 01:05 AM

I just eat any leftover, many of them being non traditional breakfast foods................but thats me

Breakfast ideas

strawberries and cream
smoked salmon or ham rolled up with cream cheese

I get bored of eggs and I try to vary breakfast as much as possible.

Try the Gram's Gourmet Flax Crunchies (available at Netrition). I eat it like creal topped with cream.

Also, I love cottage cheese with strawberries plus 1/2 packet of splenda on top.

ShellyNC 07-14-2003 04:19 PM

[color=blue]Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day. Eggs and a breakfast meat are usual but every now and then I like something different.

Deli meat and cheese rollups with your choice of condiments
Low carb bread w/ a cream cheese spread
Green bean casserole is a nice change
Chef salad w/ all the fixings is very filling

Thinking outside the normal breakfast foods might be the change you need. Being so close to goal is wonderful. Congratulations!

auntie3 07-15-2003 04:24 AM

Low carb cheesecake - with no crust, of course - is one of my very favorites.

Low carb waffles or pancakes - throw in a few blueberries and top with freshly whipped cream. Yum.

YvonneM 07-16-2003 09:42 PM

1/2 ball fresh mozzarella cheese--sliced (not the stuff in the poly wrap)
1 tomato--sliced
Olive Oil
chiffonade of basil leaves

Breakfast Ideas
Was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for Breakfast? I've never been a big breakfast eater. I've been making eggs & either bacon or sausage. I found a cool recipe for a quiche-like breakfast.

What does everyone else make?

PS - I'm in induction (and will be for a while) so alot of the lo carb muffins/breakfast bars/cereal, etc is not what I want to do just yet.

Windansea 08-22-2003 05:13 PM

I like to make flax seed meal cereal - add hot water to make a cream-of-wheat type of thing, some splenda, some cinnamon, and a little heavy cream.

Calgon, take me away 08-22-2003 05:26 PM

Who says you have to eat normal b-fast foods??? How about some steak salad or some blt salad. Just imagine!

ShellyNC 08-22-2003 07:31 PM

[color=blue]As the others have stated, breakfast can be an assortment of different foods. Being a person of habit, I seldom tire of eggs (scrambled, boiled or in omelet form) and a breakfast meat (sausage or bacon). But, I have tried chef salads, tuna, cheesecake, hamburger casseroles, vegetables casseroles, etc.

Take inventory of the foods you enjoy and break away from the usual. ;) [/color]

low carb pancakes
I just tried a delicious recipe for low carb pancakes this morning.

You blend together 8 ounces cream cheese, 2 tablespoons splenda, 4 egg yolks,1 tsp of vanilla and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Then, you blend the egg whites seperately and fold them in. These were absolutly fantastic when topped with a little splenda and cinnamon! I highly recommend trying them.

Debbieto 08-23-2003 07:22 AM

smoked salmon and cream cheese

Think outside the box....

Tunafish on romaine
Chef salad
HB eggs with mustard and mayo for dipping
chicken breast

etc. Breakfast doesnt have to be eggs and the like. It can be ANYTHING.


Meritt 08-23-2003 07:33 AM


Seriously though.... I am not a breakfast eater. LOL. I like COFFEE for breakfast. ;) I don't even get hungry until about 11:00 so I guess I usually have a 'late' breakfast and just 'pretend' that I woke up at 10:30.... hee hee.

But here are some breakfast ideas that I do use when I am hungry right away in the mornings.....

I make up a large container of Homemade Flax Cereal and keep it in the freezer at all times. We eat this hot with some cream and Splenda.

Also good are the "pancakes" of Sherries which turn out just like 'regular' French Toast - served with sugar free syrup or just splenda and cinnamon.

I love Quiche... that is a great alternative to just eating srambled eggs. Hundreds of different quiche recipes!

I also like to roll some cream cheese up in slices of ham. Sometimes I add a tiny sliver of dill pickle or a couple thin sliced olives.

Omlets sound boring I know... but think of all the possiblities for different kinds of omlets you can make! Add whatever suits your cravings for the day.

I love sausage gravy.... so I brown the sausage and make my "gravy" out of heavy cream, a dash of garlic salt and some fresh ground pepper. Later on after induction you can toast 1 slice of low-carb bread to go with it.... pure heaven if you like this sort of thing. ;)

portdevoix 08-23-2003 07:44 AM

My favorite breakfast ever is two eggs fried over easy, then cut up so the bits of cooked white are evenly coated with runny yolk. Add an ounce of grated sharp cheddar cheese and a generous sprinkling of black pepper. I enjoy this goop alongside a side of breakfast sausage...

I'm also fond of omelets. My favorite brunch is often a 3-egg omelet stuffed with sauteed onions and mushrooms, spinach, bacon, and sharp cheddar. A tall coffee with cream and DaVinci syrup. After that one, I'm not looking for food until dinnertime.

eaketch 08-23-2003 08:10 AM

Pancakes made with zero carb Carbolite Vanilla bake mix,topped with butter and Davinci's blueberry syrup. Sausage and bacon on the side. Yum! I woke up craving this breakfast this morning,( it's only my second time indulging in pancakes). It's so good it makes me feel guilty!

Jers52 08-23-2003 08:12 AM

try a quiche or frittata
I make these in a big batch in an oblong pyrex casserole dish. Then I have a quick brk every single day. I simply mix up eggs with some cream, add in sausage bits, or bacon, some veggies (I've done zucchini, or asparagus - a real hit with my coworkers!) - and some cheese. These bake for about 40 minutes. It is a great dish to take to breakfast pot lucks but also works to make a complete Atkins meal for a week. You can add some salsa to vary it out when you 'nuke' it in the AM. I usually do not tire of this dish! I'll be making one on Tuesday AM to take for our back to school breakfast.

I like to grind 1/2 c almonds in a coffee grinder then add a tbl of melted butter and a splash of vanillla syrup. It's very filling!

Xsurfrgrl 08-23-2003 08:40 AM

I like to save bacon or sausage & eggs for Sundays, and on work days I absolutely LOVE vanilla flax-o-meal cereal with some vanilla davinci and sliced strawberries for breakfast. It's high in fiber, low in calories, and saves room for a nice snack around 10 a.m. to keep that metabolism going.

shellpurr 08-23-2003 09:07 AM

where do you get flax meal cereal that everyone is talking about?

Xsurfrgrl 08-23-2003 10:48 AM


You can order it from netrition.com - or just click on the "marketplace" link above.

Alot of people make their own, but I like the vanilla almond from netrition.

sunnshine 08-23-2003 11:14 AM

If you're wanting something resembling a pastry treat try the mock danish in the recipe room ~ basically scrambled eggs with a cream cheese/Splenda mixture ~ very tasty!
