protein bar and turkey sausage!

Oh man, I have something different all of the time! Just depends on my mood, where I am and where I'm going, and who is with me. Usually if it's just me and I am busy, I have a coffee flavored protein shake that I make at home. If my hubby is home and we are just hanging out, we make low carb pancakes or crepes. If it's going to be a busy weekend in and out, I make a quiche and have that with some fresh berries or a small salad. Sometimes I have what is called and Oopsie roll (form Your Lighter Side blog). It just depends! I also love a thin steak! Just depends! Hope this helps!

Eggs are low in carbs, and high in protein! :)

I'm with EmmaLilly. I always have two eggs in the morning, sometimes with some low-sodium bacon or a couple slices of tomato. One of my favorite recipes is a sausage and cheese cup. It takes a little longer to prepare, but you make six of them and they store well in the fridge.

4 ounces turkey sausage or crumbled turkey bacon
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
5 large eggs
1 can (12 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained (I use fresh)
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350. Coat a 6-cup muffin pan with cooking spray or line with baking cups.

In a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage, pepper, and onion for 5 minutes, or until the sausage is no longer pink. Spoon the mix into a bowl and cool slightly. Stir in the eggs and mushrooms. Evenly divide the mixture among the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with the cheese.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the egg is set.

I've never been much of a "breakfast-food for breakfast" kind of person.

I just ran across some really great low-carb recipes on youtube, just yesterday. I wrote a few down, but I haven't tried any yet.

One guy in particular, seems to focus on super-fast, easy recipes (a lot of them using the microwave or a skillet).

I especially want to try the mock danish. It's maybe a five minute, five ingredient recipe.

The one-minute low-carb bread in the microwave also looked interesting


This lady (lowcarbmeals) also has lots of youtube videos and an online low-carb store (http://www.lowcarbmeals.us/)

My favorite breakfast is a bowl of natural oats with cinnamon - add blueberries and walnuts.. I actually crave this... and a side note - ever since I started adding blueberries my skin has cleared up and people tell me I have "glowing skin" -

I have one hard boiled egg, one piece of whole grain toast, and coffee with Stevia.

I have a One Minute Muffin:


There are so many variations, I never get tired of them. And you can toast them and put cream cheese or butter on them.

I'm a terrible morning person so I drink an Atkins shake and coffee. It's actually quite filling!

05-21-2012, 11:57 PM
im a big breakfast eater, so here is my favorite healthy breakfast recipe:

on top of a whole wheat english muffin place a thin patty of chicken sausage.

on top of that add a poached egg

on top of that add spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, and veggies of your choice ( i usually have cilantro, mushroom, peppers, spinach, and tomato)

you have to eat it with a fork, my hubby made the mistake of trying to make it a sandwich. but if you eat more in the morning then you do at night this is my personal favorite

out of curiosity i just looked up the calories for all of the ingredients in my above mentioned breakfast. and if you have both sides of the english muffin, 2 eggs, and 2 chicken sausage patties with the veggies, its only around a 550 calorie meal.

I'm an eggs and sausage in the morning kind of gal! I just love Walmart's Spicy Sausage patties!! I usually fry 2 eggs in Pam and have a sausage patty next to it and this fills me up until lunch time! Sometimes, if I don't have time to prepare this in the morning, an Atkins shake does the trick!

01-03-2013, 11:26 PM
Also, I often prepare some tuna fish salad (tuna, hard boiled eggs, celery, mayo, diced jalapenos!!) and snack on some when I get hungry or even have it as a meal with a low-carb tortilla! Sometimes add diced tomatoes too! Yum!!!

I love eggs! I usually have a couple of egg whites and turkey bacon, or a full egg omelette with diced turkey and avocado. Depends on the day, my mood and my cooking motivation level. I also make a crustless spinach quiche on occasion, cut into individual servings and store in sandwich bags in the fridge. Great for when I am on the go and don't have much time.

I'm a fan of an egg or two, maybe with cheese, and some turkey sausage. As long as there is coffee, all the items listed above are optional:)

04-09-2014, 10:15 PM
a green smoothie, then if need be a boiled egg or a cup of dry cereal.
