Hi, I am new to this group and have only started to look at the low carb life style. I am gluten intolerant so that limits the types of carbs I can have when I can have them, if that makes any sense. All gluten free breads and bagels, etc. are very high in carbs. I tried going low carb about a month ago and all I could figure out to eat for breakfast was eggs. By the end of the week I wanted to vomit at the thought of eating another egg. I am still not very thrilled with the thought. To make matters worse I refuse to eat any artificial and or new so-called "natural" low cal sugars. I will only eat real sugar. But I do realize my sugar intake i high and needs to come down quite a bit. Does anyone have any suggestions for breakfast? I would love to hear them.

How about some deli turkey on half of a gluten free bagel?

Could you try cottage cheese or even yogurt?

I eat Oatmeal and add fruits to them. I eat egg whites instead of regular eggs, but sometimes mix a large egg with egg whites. Create an omelet of your choice of veggies and you have a heart breakfast right there. I know you want to vomit at the word eggs now though lol. If you think about it you can make fresh potatoes into hash browns because all hash browns are are potatoes. I also have turkey sausages instead of pork.

I am on low carb also and also want to vomit at the thought of eating eggs every morning. I can't seem to do it without my toast, which at this point I can't have. So I find myself drinking a protein shake or eating some turkey and cheese. Breakfast is a hard one for me because for most of my life it was just eating a bowl of cereal. So I am excited to read other ideas. Smile

I know you don't want to hear "egg whites" but as a marathon runner I eat them almost daily. Here is how I switch it up so I don't get bored! egg whites with any of these add ins: hebrew national low fat hot dogs, traders joes fat free feta and spinach, laughing cow cheese, and frank's red hot- i put that stuff on everything!

What about Canadian Bacon with a little bit of shredded cheese? Side of fruit? The Hillshire farm thin ham is good. You can always heat some in a skillet with spray and add some garlic powder to it. Little bit of shredded cheese too. Try They have recipes for all different variations.

Try some peanut butter and an apple. My personal favorite snack is cottage cheese and peanut butter sprinkled with Splenda (or in your case, sugar) to satisfy my sweet tooth. It may sound like an odd combo, but don't knock it until you try it! Good luck!

I love fresh berries with greek yogurt and walnuts. Also oatmeal cooked with skim milk and mix in blueberries or apples with a few walnuts.

You could have pancakes made with almond meal, TVP oatmeal (google it), or basically anything you can whip up with almond meal in place of the flours. I love eggs and eat omelet's almost all week. I just switch up what I mix in and take a day here and there off. When I remember to eat breakfast

Chop up your favorite vegetables (bell peppers work great!), put it in a pan with some butter and water, and stir fry them with your favorite spices! It's a healthy, and truly delicious way to start off your morning if you do it just right.

I like to use cayanne pepper (speeds metabolism), chives, minced onion or garlic, old bay, and salt and pepper.
Cheers, Maria

tuna mixed with siracha hot sauce; add onions and/or celery to add volume; put on low cal whole grain pita, or large leaves of romaine and roll up. Butter lettuce works really well for wraps. I use about 3 leaves of either lettuce to hold my fixin's. Hope this helps. Pam

I eat one and a half apples chopped with cinnamon and a tiny pinch of salt microwaved for 90 seconds every morning, it is delicious and nutritious, plus the cinnamon is a metabolism booster and regulates blood sugar.

Baked Pear or a Baked apple - set your oven to 350 core out the center of the apple or pear, add some cinnamon, (nutmeg if you like it) and a capfull of lemon juice (I also use Baked Apple Spice), bake it for 20 min. in a pan. I like my fruit to still have a little crunch. Very good very low in carbs.

I love my fruit smoothie. A 1/2 frozen banana (it's better when it's frozen for the texture), strawberries, blueberries, or other fruits, 1 package of tofu dessert (the maple caramel flavor is so good in it). Sooooo good!!!!! And my 8 years old son finds it delicious too.

Hello Dear,

Breakfast ideas are something that most people don’t think about. But, having a healthy breakfast is very important. Truly, most people don’t eat a suitable, healthy breakfast, while it means “breaking the fast” and it helps us to fulfill our energy stores, giving us energy for the day’s activities.

But, sometimes many of us are not in a condition to prepare them in a home. So you should consider readymade food products, which are healthy and nutritious. An example of such a company creating these type of products is Sheffa Foods- you can Google them and take a look at their product line, they taste great too! Here’s a guideline as to what should be hadfor breakfast:

One serving of a whole grain carbohydrate.
One serving of calcium containing food.
One serving of fruit.
