Breakfast is the meal that is much different on the 800 calorie HCG diet as compared to the original Simeons’ protocol. An apple or a few bread sticks is not breakfast and eating only these leads in the long run to hunger later in the day. A lot of overweight people skip breakfast as a way to reduce calories or because they are too rushed or not hungry. Breakfast can be very simple or more complicated. Here are some simple suggestions for breakfast followed by some breakfast recipes:

Breakfast on the HCG Diet

There are 6 choices for breakfast:

  1. 2 eggs, a veggie omelet (this can be made of egg whites, 2 whole eggs, egg beaters or any combination thereof). Add 3 crackers to the eggs (Melba toast etc.).
  2. 2 cheese triangles or slices spread over 3 crackers.
  3. Dannon Carb Control Light and Fit yogurt with berries or cut up fruit.
  4. Breakstones low fat cottage cheese with fruit.
  5. A High protein, low carb bar.
  6. A high protein, low carb shake.

Note also that there are numerous beverage choices on the HCG diet so you have variety and won’t get bored with the same thing over and over.

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 small bottle of vegetable juice for a quick and healthy breakfast. You can also prepare mini quiches in advance and microwave them at work.

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.

Spinach and Tomato Frittata

 

A frittata is sort of 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.

Ingredients:
3 egg whites
1 egg yolk
1-10 ounce package of fresh spinach, chopped
1 Tsp. minced garlic (adjust to taste)
Spices (Thyme, Rosemary, Sage, White Pepper, etc.) to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat egg whites and yolk 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.

1 egg
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 Tsp. baking powder
