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

Think outside the breakfast "box" ie you don't have to eat breakfast items. You can have deli wrap ups, left overs, yogurt, smoothies (yogurt, ice/water & packet of crystal light...protein powder if you like), soup, etc. Also scroll down to the bottom of the phase 1 recipe thread for some alternative breakfasts such as flax seed cereal. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes sa geboard_thread.asp?board=2362x318x38R>658834
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae - happily maintaining since 1/2009
I am unable to take the texture or consistancy of eggs if they are not hidden by powerful other flavors. I am not sure why. My normal breakfast would consist of toast with peanut butter, oatmeal or cereal. Now, that I am on phase 1, I am unable to have my normal breakfasts and I am not sure what to do. My husband made us these things called fluffins for breakfast this morning and I just could not do it. Any and all suggestions will be used until I can find something that works.
