Preheat the oven to 400°F. Whip the egg whites to soft peaks adding salt and pepper to taste.


Fake French Toast

2 eggs
4 Tbsp. ricotta cheese (no fat)
dash cinnamon and nutmeg
2 pkt Splenda

Heat frying pan.  Mix all ingredients together.  Spray some PAM in a small frying pan and pour batter in, spreading a little.  Brown on one side, and then flip and brown other side.

Use no-sugar syrup


Almond Vanilla Pancakes

5 Tbsp. almond flour or soy flour
1 Tbsp. water
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking powder
A couple of pinches Splenda
1 Tbsp. vanilla syrup

Mix all the above together.  Add no-sugar syrup for flavor.


Broccoli Frittata
(4 servings)

1/2 cup non-fat cottage cheese
1/2 teaspoon Dried dill
2 cups fat-free egg substitute
1 10-oz package of frozen chopped broccoli
1 onion – diced

In large non-stick frying pan over medium heat, sauté onions in PAM for 5 minutes, or until soft.  Add broccoli and dill; sauté for 5 minutes, or until broccoli is heated through.

In a large bowl, mix eggs and no-fat cottage cheese. Stir in broccoli mixture. Wipe out frying pan, and then place it over medium-high heat and let stand for about 2 minutes. Add PAM and swirl the pan to distribute it. Add half of the egg mixture; lift and rotate pan so that eggs are evenly distributed.

As eggs set around the edges, lift them to allow uncooked portions to flow underneath. Turn heat to low, cover the pan, and cook until top is set. Invert onto a serving plate and cut into wedges. Repeat with remaining 1 teaspoon margarine egg mixture.


Denver Omelet

1 dozen eggs or Egg Beaters
1 pint (16 oz) fat-free sour cream
12 oz shredded cheese – jack and/or cheddar
1 lb cooked ham – chopped (check to make sure it isn’t loaded with sugar)
1 large green pepper – chopped
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic (optional)
Eggs are the basis of many low carb breakfasts. They are versatile, inexpensive and easy to prepare. For a breakfast on the go, boil eggs in advance and store them in your refrigerator. In the morning, grab a couple of boiled eggs and a fruit for a quick and healthy breakfast. You can also prepare mini quiches in advance and microwave them at work. Egg Beaters are a great choice.


Mini Quiche

1-10 ounce package of defrosted, chopped spinach
3 eggs
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheese
1/4 cup diced green bell peppers
1/4 cup diced onions

Simply combine the ingredients and stir together, pouring evenly into 12 foil baking cups that have been prepared with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for twenty minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


A frittata is a cross between an omelet and a quiche made on the stove and sometimes finished in the oven. They are a great way to use leftover vegetables, because you can put any vegetable you want in it.  In Italy, it is a common item in a lunch brought from home. They don’t take long to make, and then you can use it for several meals. Of course, it’s even easier to simply scramble leftover veggies and cheese with eggs.  You can make a big batch of this and save the extra; zip-type plastic bags work well.

Spinach/Tomato Frittata

3 egg whites
1 egg yolk
1 cup frozen chopped spinach
1 chopped tomato
1 clove minced garlic
Spices for flavor (I would use different ones like thyme, rosemary, sage, white pepper, etc)

Preheat oven 350 degrees.  Beat egg whites and eggs with spices in bowl.  Put spinach and tomatoes in ovenware. Pour egg mix over spinach and tomatoes. Bake for 30 – 35 min or until eggs are not runny – it can be more or less depending on how many veggies you use.


Protein Powder Pancakes

Pancake Syrup

1/4 cup of water
1 tsp flavored extract such as banana ( without sugar)
A pinch of salt
1-2 packets Splenda, or vanilla Stevia
A couple dashes of cinnamon

Put it in a nonstick pan and reduced it down.  It only takes a few minutes.

3 egg whites
1 whole egg
Asparagus (allowed amount)
