Sweet Induction Breakfast
CarbsPerServing:5g total Effort:Easy
1/2 tablespoon butter 2 eggs 2 packets artificial sweetener2 tablespoons cream cheese 1 teaspoon heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
How to Prepare: Heat frying pan and allow butter to coat the bottom. Mix the 2 eggs with a packet of sweetener in a small bowl and pour into frying pan. DO NOT STIR EGGS--let them cook like an omelet.
In another small bowl mix the cream cheese, heavy cream, vanilla and a packet of sweetener.
When the eggs are cooked, you can let them cool before adding the cream mixture or let the mixture melt slightly onto the warm eggs. Gently spread the cream mixture to cover the eggs (like tomato sauce on a pizza). Using a spatula roll the egg "crepe" together like a jelly roll. Ejoy!! Makes a nice snack or dessert, too!
Porridge (Cooked Oatmeal) Equivalent
CarbsPerServing:counts not provided Effort:Easy
1 egg 2 teaspoons protein powder -- soy, unflavored half and half1/4 cup powdered nuts (macadamia -- walnut, whatever) sweetner
How to Prepare: As a note, just put the nuts into a blender and let it run enough to chop them into a coarse powder.
Mix the protein powder and the egg in a small mixing bowl. Add an equivalent volume of half and half, or cream. Mix. Put the bowl in the microwave and cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Mix again, and cook for 1 minute. Adjust the time so that the mixture is cooked and not runny. Mix again until it has the consistancy of porridge.
Mix in the nuts. Add sweetner to taste, and add half and half as typical on porridge. The result is pretty adequate with a slight eggy taste.
