Yummy breakfast that is practically dessert!

I am trying to eat lower carb foods-- which means finding alternatives to my standard bowl of cereal for breakfast. I am really not a breakfast person. I'm not a big fan of fried eggs, waffles, sausages, bacon, oatmeal, biscuits and gravy, etc. etc. Many of those aren't low carb anyway so that's okay!

So breakfasts since I've started this style of eating have consisted of cottage cheese with a handful or two of berries, deviled eggs, salad, raw almonds, scrambled eggs with lots of spinach, mushrooms and pepper jack cheese, and ummm......that's about it. A lot of that didn't seem very "breakfasty" though I don't mind it too much. But here's the "dessert for breakfast" concoction that I tried this morning and it was so delicious:

1/3 cup flaxseed meal
boiling water
real whipped cream
3 drops of stevia (natural sweetener)
a spoonful of triple berry mix (from Costco)

Pour the boiling water over the flaxseed meal to the consistency you like (it thickens). Add the berry mix and stevia and let the berries defrost for a minute or 2 in the hot cereal. Stir in some whipped cream. So yummy, full of fiber and low carb too!

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com
