Sometimes I get tired of getting the same eggbeater omelet and yogurt for breakfast. Last week, my mom found a new type of crustless quiche for breakfast that is pretty low-carb. I tried it, and I really like it for an occasional change:
The carb count is 6 gram. I think most of it comes from quinoa, which is pretty low GI for me. It is 170 calories. I end up being still hungry after 1 quiche, so I normally eat 1.5 quiches, that is 9 carbs and 250 calories. here is the label:
When you are looking for different eggs, make a fluffy omlette! Separate the eggs, beat the egg whites until stiff, gently fold back in the egg yolks that you beat gently, and then cook it on the stove for a minute before putting it in the oven for 10 minutes or so. Throw whatever you want into the omelette.
Also, don’t forget about poached eggs, those are nice for a change.
I found a similar product, mini frittatas, by Jimmy Dean that I thought was good on days when I want an egg breakfast but have no time whatsoever. It says no carbs in the description which is a total lie, there are 9g, but that’s a level that works for me. They remind me somewhat of Starbucks egg bites, but the texture is different (not as fluffy, since not sous-vide), and they come in several flavors including a vegetarian option.
I really like bacon and cheese, too, and spinach also But I totally don’t go for artichoke hearts: my dad likes to cook them in all kinds of dishes, but I don’t like them any way at all. Still, I have to eat them because I am not allowed to leave veggies and fruits uneaten at home.

bachelor breakfast: eggs, sausage, zucchini. Usually the sausage is precooked like an Adelles sausage so it’s quicker.
[/quote] I really like these kinds of breakfasts! I’ll ask my dad to try putting zucchini in it. Often he puts celery or fennel, but I really like zucchini (peeled I like even better, it’s not bitter at all).
It says no carbs on the front of the package, but 9g in the nutritional info. I don’t know how they are able to make that claim on the front though, it’s really misleading, but hopefully anyone concerned would read the real label.
