I just started the south beach diet and was previously on the atkins and this is what I eat for breakfast almost every day.

Egg Crepes:
3 eggs
1/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. no calorie sugar substitute
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. cream cheese
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 packet sugar substitute

Put eggs, cottage cheese, vanilla, sugar sub, and cinnamon in a blender and blend until well blended. Spray a medium frying pan with cooking spray and place the mixture into the pan a tablespoon at a time. Cook on high heat. For the filling combine cream cheese, cinnamon, and sugar sub in a small bowl and mix until the cream cheese becomes creamy. Place the cream cheese mixture inside the egg crepe and roll together. Top with cinnamon and enjoy.

For mornings when you want a sweet breakfast treat...

2 eggs
1 Tbsp Ricotta Cheese
1 Tbsp Cream Cheese (softened)
1 Tsp sweetener

Combine Ricotta & Cream Cheeses and the sweetener. Make a thin omelet out of the eggs. Spread cheese mixture around omelet & roll up.

I can't remember where I got the original recipe, but I know it called for 2 Tbsp's Cr. Cheese. The carb count on the Cr. Cheese seems to be much higher in Canada than elsewhere, so I exchanged 1 Tbsp of that for Ricotta. When you're trying to maintain induction level, every gram (or even 1/2 of) counts LOL. It's much creamier with the Cr. Cheese, but if you don't mind the texture of Ricotta this is nice too.

I was really hungry one day and tried this recipe with 3 eggs & YUCK. Now, I'm not an egg fan to begin with (which is why I need to disguise the taste of eggs LOL), but 3 eggs made the omelet too thick & too eggy tasting. Eggy taste & sweet cheese filling - not for me thanks :lol:.

When I'm craving something sweet I usually put some cottage cheese on a piece of whole wheat toast and sprinkle with splenda and cinnamon! I love it!
