I wouldn't simply for the reason that you will probably be starving in a very short time and not getting the nutrition and satisfaction of eating something . How about eating leftovers from the night before, or turkey/spinich/bean roll up or anything else phase 1 friendly? You don't have to eat eggs at all, but I'd have a full meal of some kind.

No you can not use it, if you read the ingridents I bet sugars are high on the list. You do not have to have eggs for breakfast. Alot of times during ph 1 I would eat left overs from supper the night before. Think outside the breakfast box. Check the recipie section for some great recipies.

thanks! I was just looking at these SBD recipies and found one for a cinnamon muffin. I think I will by some ground flaxseed tonight and try it out.

Jonsgurl, have you tried making some veggie-packed omelets or frittatas? I know they're egg dishes, but I just love them so much more than a plain ol' egg.

Hi, Jonsgirl! The girls have given some excellent ideas for breakfast, other than eating eggs. :) Check out this sticky from our FAQ section, too, for more great breakfast alternatives -

DON'T DO IT!!! The cinnamon flaxmeal muffins are AWFUL!!! They're slimy and greasy and taste like nothing. It's like eating a crunchy sponge. Even though there is a ton of cinnamon in there don't let it fool you. They only smell like yummy cinnamon muffins.

If you're really stuck with b-fast ideas, which I was, I ended up eating a cheese stick with 2 tbs of peanut butter. I also made the mock french toast a few times which was ok with sf syrup. They were like really flat pancakes. When I ate the cheese stick and peanut butter, I just beefed up my mid morning snack so I wasn't starving come lunch time.

Hope this helps!!

I should have read this before making the muffins... they were AWFUL blah!!

I made them in the oven though and the smell... was sooo yummy. verry disappointed

I found a vanilla smoothie in my south beach diet cookbook for phase one. I think I am going to try that for next week.
