Ok, i'm in desperate need of breakfast ideas that don't involve eggs. It's getting to the point that the thought of eating an egg is gag-inducing. Help!

I eat 2 eggs every morning so I don't have a lot of ideas for breakfast BUT Google "Linda's Low Carb". She has A LOT of recipes. I'm sure you'll find breakfast ideas that don't involve eggs. Also remember that you can go non-traditional and have meat/cheese.

Don't just think of breakfast as an "egg" only type meal.Think outside the box! I sometimes have leftover venison steak and cheese for breakfast. Or veggies. Definitely check out Linda's site. I haven't been there lately, but remember it from the first time around on Atkins :) You can do this :)

Tomorrow is 2 weeks on induction for me...didn't take long at all to get tired of eggs. Surprisingly, a crustless quiche, full of low carb veggies and maybe ham or turkey, is not so eggy. Also got tired of lean ham. I'm enjoying sausage patties for breakfast now.

I'm planning on venturing into making my eggs into "muffins". that way I can have them pre-made and ready to go in the mornings. I'm planning on throwing cheese, onions & Peppers in along with the sausage and eggs. Can't wait to eat them :)

Well, there's the common sausage and bacon for breakfast. But I personally think chicken salad scooped into a bell pepper is pretty good in the morning, even though it's not super 'breakfasty'.

I got really sick of eggs too! I had to give them up until I discovered pickled eggs. You can make them at home with some eggs, vinegar, bagged pickling spice, and a jar. There's tons of recipes online.

It's gotten to the point where anything "savory" makes me want to gag first thing in the morning. I know they're not really recommended for inductions, but i've been drinking the shakes in the morning and it's saving me. I guess that's one thing i really miss about IP (the shakes).

I'm guilty of drinking shakes too. I go for the generic whey protein stuff (it's less expensive), and it hasn't caused me any problems. But Atkins bars are another story! They knock me right out of ketosis.

I agree SugarSpell....there is much cheaper stuff out there. I buy the Costco whey protein mix and it only has 3 carbs per serving....I am not using it right now on induction but will later on......
Also, I love your idea for breakfast.......I never liked sugar filled breakfasts to begin with...mainly protein..Pickled eggs....got to try that one!
Thanks for the ideas!

muffins in a minute made with flax seed meal is a great breakfast, i put cream cheese on them..and the flax helps clear the pipes :

I love leftovers for breakfast....I know, some of you will understandably go "YUCK"!!!
I love chicken, steak or fish in the morning.....was never a fan of sweet sugary crap.....and the protein fuels me.
I must admit that - many times - I am bad and skip it.....but when I try my hardest.. protein is the answer for me!

I alternate between sausage links and eggs during induction. Sometimes I'll use bacon instead of sausage, but that's as much as I deviate for breakfast...

I second the muffin in a minute, can be with flax meal or almond meal. Sliced and toasted with cream cheese, nut butters, crumbled into greek yogurt instead of granola etc. I make several at a time and keep in the fridge.

So I'm not totally sure this is inductions friendly (I'm still in week 2) but I found this recipe for fake french toast that I'm gonna try for breakfast tomorrow.

Cuz I'm with you... I'm sick of eggs and I miss french toast sooooo much! Its my favorite food ever! And I have a 1 yr old that hates eggs so he's torturing me with his waffles, oatmeals, fruit, and cereal breakfasts. Yes, I'm jealous of my 1 yr old! :dizzy:

So because I'm probably more desperate that you I'll be your guinea pic and try this recipe:

Sorry, I guess you cant post full links here.

I'll let you know how it tastes and if I have any issues with ketosis and weight loss.

Ok so I tried the recipe and it was actually GOOD!!!
I would add little more splenda than the recipe calls for and add lots of cinnamon cuz it was slightly salty still but thats cuz i used alotta butter to pan fry. And cook them on low-medium heat so they dont burn and make it saltier.

Here's how they turned out:

43875
43876

The texture and taste was very simlar to french toast. It hit that spot, thats for sure! I did use SF syrup from Publix which has a lotta sugar alcohol so I tried to use it sparingly.

Gets my approval but I'll let you know if I stall in any way.

No stalls yet! I'm still testing moderate on the ketostix so seems like we're good! I'd try it!
