Breakfast- no eggs

I wouldn't get started on the bean bread--it's a slippery slope. How about baked ricotta, or cottage cheese and veggies, or yogurt, meat rollups OR leftover dinner?

A protein drink made with whey protein powder?

I have the same thing every AM- 1/2 Fiber One Original cereal with 1/2 C berries and 1/2 C skim milk or unsweetened almond milk. But I don't know what your carb allowance is for the day. Breakfast is my "carby" meal for the day. Plus, it keeps me regular (sorry!).

I've never tried the bean bread recipes and have read mixed reviews. I use flax meal and some almond meal when making muffins. Chia is supposed to be good too, but I haven't tried that yet. I'm satisfied with flax seed and get it at a great price from my local farmer's market. With anything, flax intake should be moderated. It's almost all fiber and can run through your system in a hurry if you overindulge. Having said all that, we usually have flax once a day.

Here are some breakfast recipes that I've gathered here and there. I can't take credit except for some minor tweaks.

Flax Seed Meal Pancakes

1/2 C egg substitute (or 2 eggs)
3 T flax seed meal (I prefer golden)
1 t baking powder
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t granulated sugar substitute
cinnamon to taste

Whisk egg substitute then add ingredients. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes or so on each side. For fluffier pancakes, let the batter stand 4-5 minutes before pouring. Makes two good sized pancakes. Possible variations include nutmeg, ginger... extracts and SF syrups. (I use Torani). When making pigs in a blanket add SF maple syrup (I use Walden Farms) and wrap around a turkey sausage. We love trying different flavors and make these several times a week. My boys have come up with a chocolate banana concoction that only kids could love.


Cinnamon/Nutmeg Muffins

1 1/4 C flax seed meal
2 t baking Powder
1 T cinnamon
1 t nutmeg
1/2 t salt (I use no salt)
3/4 C granulated sugar substitute
4 eggs
1/4 C oil
1/2 C water
1 T vanilla
1/2 C chopped pecans

Mix dry ingredients (I use a whisk), add beaten eggs and the rest to the dry. Let batter stand 10 minutes then spoon into a greased muffin pan. Bake 18 minutes at 350 degrees.


Banana Nut Muffins

2 C flax meal
1 C chopped walnuts
1/2 C granulated sugar substitute
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 T banana extract
1/2 C vanilla
1/4 C oil
4 eggs

Mix dry ingredients. Whisk eggs and add other wet ingredients to the dry mixture. Spoon into sprayed muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or so. These are my favs and VERY filling. You can also pour batter into a loaf pan for banana bread. Served warm with some ICBINB or Parkay spray and yummo!

Peanut Butter Muffins

1/2 C egg white (3-4 eggs)
1/4 C flax meal
1/4 C almond meal (or double flax)
1/4 C granular sugar substitute
1/2 C low sugar peanut butter (I use I.M. Healthy)
1/4 C ricotta cheese (I sub tofu)
1 t vanilla
1 t baking soda

Melt peanut butter in microwave and mix all ingredients together. Spoon into mini muffin cups (I use a bite size brownie silicone mat) and bake for 15 minutes or so at 350 degrees. Variations include adding cocoa, chocolate chips or SF chocolate syrup. My kids absolutely love when I add 1t of chocolate Torani syrup and slivered Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips to the batter. My youngest takes it a step further and sprinkles cocoa on top before baking - very decadent.

Hope this helps liven up your mornings. Don't forget your protein. Turkey bacon and sausage taste great and are very filling.

Sorry, I'm away from the house (headed to the beach ). IIRC, they're all @2-2.5 net per muffin (I know they're under 3 because that's my threshold ). Less for the pb if you use unsweetened soy butter, but add .25-.50 per if using chocolate chip shavings and cocoa. The banana nut is very dense and makes 12 big muffins or 24 smaller ones.

When I do eat breakfast I like to make it quick and easy. If it's not eggs, it's usually a bowl of cereal with soy milk, fruit, and walnuts. Sometimes it's a bowl of old-fashioned oats with peanut butter and sugar-free preserves. Tastes like a PB&J sandwich!

A glass of V8 juice with a piece of canadian bacon spread with a piece of skinny cow! I used to eat that every morning. Was yummy!

My everyday breakfast is an Eggcream, sometimes with berries, sometimes with Chocolate Almond Breeze. Keeps me satisfied until lunch time!
