One of the few breakfasts that stump me.... so I use my standard diabetic breakfast, skipping the eggs... Israeli breakfast salad. I got up early so I could prepare this and some fried potatoes. I have salad left over... but that's good for me Smiling

I don't really do breakfast meats, it's never really been my thing. Plus I constantly deal with vegetarians and those who don't eat pork, so I've learnt to just skip trying for the most part. We do lox or gravlax on some special occasions and home made. 

Still two diets are really don't cater to... low carb and soy-free. But I do a diabetic breakfast, so that's what I did. I can't do soy-free, as soy lecithin is so prevalent... can't find a bread that is soy free. 

Anyone have a go to for low carb no eggs that doesn't involve breakfast meats... which I just don't stock?

Check out my Crock Pot Cereal that is on recipes here. It waswritten using 7-grain. Have made it with 5-grain and 10-grain.

Nah, I'm your basic brat.

Unless a guest gives me specific suggestions of what to serve for a very restrictive diet, I offer what I've got. There are 27 g of carbs in an average sweet potato. I love them but will it be low enough in carbs for the low carb-er to eat?

I make a side with quinoa, black beans and corn that would work as a salad-side or warm as the main.  And Steel oats are low carb so slow-cooker oatmeal, spiced up with apples and cinnamon could be started the night before and served hot in the morning.

We have packets of oatmeal, but in the summer, it's a little more difficult.

I've seen people prepare oatmeal in a mason jar, overnight. I've never tried it. Anyone? Worked well? Served cold or does it need to be heated?

I used the little jars my yogurt came in to make the overnight oatmeal. Make sure you use enough milk. I ate it cold, was not half bad!

I put in cinnamon sugar. Topped with blueberries. I didn't feel like making cooked apples, but that's what I'd top it with for guests.

Lots of toppings or inclusions would work.

Never done the mason jar oatmeal but I’m happy to share the slow cooker steel oats recipe if you can dig up the appliance.  Really easy and all the prep is done the night before.  Great reheated so you can serve it over several days.

I have done baked ricotta as a low-carb, gluten-free, low-sugar dessert - with lemon or fruit. There are savory versions as well.

I've made a Sweet Potato hash - (w or w/o sausage & egg) The base ingredients are:

Shredded Sweet Potatoes, chopped zucchini, yellow squash, asparagus, onion, mushrooms, peppers - add seasonings and Voila!

Meat and egg as an added option!

Ah, I usually would use regular potato for that. Of course we are coming into my own preferences... yes, I don't like sweet potatoes Smiling
