We have become so used to the idea of breakfast cereal for breakfast that one of the most common questions is always "What can I eat for a low carb breakfast?" So while any of the low carb meals would work, here are some breakfast ideas to get you started :)
|Boiled Egg and Fruit
Any 2 of:
|Boil egg. Serve in an egg cup with 2 fruit on a plate. For kiwis I suggest cut it in half and then spoon out the flesh.|
|Omelette and fried tomato
Olive or avo oil
|Beat the egg in a mug. Oil a small microwave safe bowl and pour in egg.
Micro for 30 secs. Break up cooked egg and mix.Cook for an another 30 secs.
Slice tomato and micro for 1 min.
Chopped chives can be added to food before cooking for extra flavour.
|Poached Egg and Fried Tomato
|Poach egg - special dishes are available to do this in the microwave easily.
Slice tomato and cook for 1 min in micro.
1/4 cup Soy Flour
1/3 cup Cream
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Flaxseeds / Linseeds
1/8 tsp Salt
|Mix all ingredients to make pancake batter.
Spray pan with olive oil non-stick cooking spray.
Pour batter onto pan in 4" (or smaller) circle. Once edge of pancake starts looking cooked, flip.
Makes roughly 6.
|Berries in Yoghurt||Handful berries
1 tub unsweetened yoghurt
|Pour yoghurt over berries and serve.
You can also sprinkle with nuts of your choice.
|Nutty Cereal||200g Flaked Almonds
100g Pumpkin Seeds
100g Walnuts, broken up
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger
2 Tbsp Oil
|Fry nuts, seeds and spices in the oil for 5-10 minutes, till warmed through.
Serve in a bowl with milk.
Much more filling than your average cereal, this will make enough for about 12 servings.
|Chia Seed Porridge||2Tbsp Chia Seeds
|Put seeds, coconut and ginger in a cereal bowl and cover with water.
Microwave for 3 mins. Watch for overflowing. Add more water if preferred. Microwave for another 2 mins.
Once seeds have absorbed the water sprinkle with cinnamon and serve. Can be eaten with a little milk or yoghurt if preferred.
