My son will absolutely NOT eat eggs - he doesn't like the consistancy and is really sensitive to sulfur. I also have a train of kids to get out the door in the morning and one thing I cannot afford are two separate meal options in the house. So my challenge was to find something that everyone can eat. Here's a couple of things I used to eat on Phase 1 - The eastiest and a total treat is to mix 1 cup of plain fat-free yogurt with about a half tsp of your favorite extract (which you can play with for flavor) and then drizzle it with about a tsp of sugar free chocolate syrup.
Another popular one which I also used (and still use) as a dessert is also good for breakfast. Take about a 1/2 cup of part-skim ricotta cheese and then blend it with one packet of artificial sweetener. Then I mix it up with lemon juice or lime juice or I indulge with vanilla extract and maybe some unsweetened cocoa powder and/or espresso powder. I suggest that you warm it up a little - for some reason it is more satisfying.
Need something a little more savory? Okay then. Take a baking dish, layer the bottom with sliced tomato, season with salt and pepper. Top with turkey sausage patties and sliced reduced-fat cheese (equivalent to a slice a person) and broil until cheese is melted. If you go to the South Beach diet website, they give you a recipe to make your own patties.
Hope this gave you some ideas. -Gina
