Hi --

I'm doing a ketogenic cycle diet right now, and have been below 20 carbs/day fo r three weeks. I have a 'cheat' day coming up on Saturday, and then am slipping into 30 - 35 carbs/day -- almost exclusively from vegetables, with an occasional fruit.

One thing, though.

I'm dying for pancakes or french toast. I need something sweet that doesn't taste like chemicals (eg, atkins breakfast bars). I have some of that zero calorie maple syrup stuff, and i want to add it in, because I'm totally missing my breakfast foods (besides eggs).

Helllllp me :D
