Low Carb Breakfast Menu Ideas
Stumped on what to have for breakfast? Lots of quick ideas here.

Low Carb Pancakes - Almond Meal
I actually think these low carb pancakes taste better than the old white flour kind. Almond meal is healthier as well.

Satisfying Breakfast Shake
This shake is designed to get you going (with coffee, but you can use decaf) and keep you going through the morning (with the medium-chain fatty acids in the coconut milk).

Low-Carb Granola
Low-carb and sugar-free granola - only 4 grams of net carb per serving.

Flax Meal Peanut Butter Cereal
You can make this hot cereal right in the bowl.

Low-Carb Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes
These yummy pecan pumpkin pancakes say "autumn", and at only 2 grams of carb per pancake.

Hot Pumpkin "Cereal"
Recipe for low carb pumpkin hot "cereal".

TVP "Oatmeal"
You won't believe how close to oatmeal this is!

Joe's Special, Laura Style
Every breakfast place in the San Fransisco area seems to have their version of this local classic. Here's mine.

Bacon and Egg Casserole Recipe
I was looking for a way to achieve the "puffiness" of egg casseroles made with bread (Italians call them strata), and I found that including almond meal achieves a lot of the puffiness without the starch - but it works fine without it, too.

Easy Flax Breakfast Pudding
This "pudding" can be put together in the microwave in 3-4 minutes. You can add berries or other "mix-ins" - I have lots of suggestions. The flax gives it lots of fiber and good fat, plus a nice nutty flavor.

Blueberry Almond Breakfast Pudding
This easy, healthy, low carb breakfast pudding can be made with any berries or other addtions as listed. Make it in the microwave in under 5 minutes.

Denver Casserole
This is like a large Denver (or "Western") omelet, and is great as a main dish for dinner or brunch. Leftovers make a nice quick breakfast.

Pizza Frittata
This frittata can be for any meal. I like to make it for dinner and eat the leftovers for breakfast or lunch.

Crustless Smoked Salmon, Leek, and Mushroom Quiche
This crustless quiche is easy to make, and is great for any meal. The smoked salmon lends a touch of elegance.

Easy Eggs Florentine
You can make this in a few minutes for any meal.

Terri's Tofu Scramble
Terri's vegan low carb tofu scramble.

Low-Carb Tourtiere Hash Recipe
A low-carb version of the French-Canadian meat pie called tourtiere -- made into a hash. This is an adaptation of an old family recipe.
