Hello everyone,

Struggling Dad here...I must confess to doing the breakfast drive thru at McDonalds, but no more!

Here's my alternative to McDonald's Egg McMuffin

Toasted Whole Wheat English Muffin
Canadian Bacon 1 slice
Sprinkle of grated mozzarella cheese over the muffin
1 egg beaten with a 1/4 tsp of water...cooked and folded like an omelete

Some assembly required

No sugar and less than 250 calories.

Molly,
Is the "Molly McMuffin" the same as above?
molly
Pretty much ... sometimes I change the meat to ham or bacon or sausage or I might use a different knid of cheese.... often I add a slice of tomato (I try to get extra veggies in anywhere I can).

Where do you get your whole wheat english muffins at? I use to love bagels but haven't been able to find any without sugar in them. This would be a great substitute for that though. Thanks!

Stacy,
Walmart used to sell them, and health food stores may as well.
Do remember, if the sugar is very low in the ingredient list, it may be eaten up by the yeast in the rising process. What I mean is that it may be a small amount used to activate the yeast and then consumed by the yeast.
That is not to say, not to really look at the ingredient list very carefully. But, if it is far down the list and listed as less than 3 grams, it would be ok, but portion size would then of course be important.
Take care,
Ed

It's amazing how much sugar free stuff there really is out there. I have found sugar free peanut butter, jelly and bread. Yay for pb&j sandwiches! smile.gif I've also found the sweet potato chips from Tarra, whole wheat bagels, sugar free chocolate pudding, and a whole line of Central Market Organics crackers and various sb legal items.

That being said, I sometimes have problems controlling how much I eat of this stuff. If you notice, all the stuff I just listed are still pretty high in carb content, even though they are legal.

Tricky isint it? how something so good could be so bad if you eat too much of it. I love suger-free pudding that's my chocalate fix and a treat when ive been doing a good job on my excercise I feel like its just nice to have so many choices and it truely is a mind thing, you just have to get yourself to stop eating i think thats what brought us all to sb to began with but that's just me smile.gif take care.

This thread was helpful, but now I have a new question. Are the " low-carb atkins breakfast bars" mentioned above acceptable to eat on the sb woe?

A tip for making your eggs even quicker:

Crack one egg into a one cup or larger glass measuring cup (optional - add cheese and chopped veggies at this point). Scramble with a fork and cook on high for 45-60 seconds. It will form into a perfect shape for a breakfast muffin sandwich!
