In the winter you could do oatmeal made overnight in a slow cooker and offer toppings like dried fruit, nuts, bananas etc

scrambled eggs in wraps (there are high fibre, low fat wraps)

Low fat muffins

ask a nearby restaurant to make a breakfast strata-I’m assumimg you have access to a microwave for reheating

fritatta and fruit

Without any carbs…..fruit salads, thin bagels with cream cheese and spreads (though that does have some carbs), fruit & veggies, granola bars, smoothies (but those are spendy and I don’t know a whole lot of guys that prefer those for breakfast), (I’d say yogurt, but that’s a no go.).

I’d also suggest a breakfast casserole, fritatta, tortilla egg wraps, pot/crockpot of oatmeal with toppings, etc. But I don’t know how reheating would work for you.

It’s harder to make breakfast items with little to no prep, for mostly men, and no carbs.

I would have gone with build your own parfait as well. So I don’t know. If you eliminate bread and yogurt what the hell else is left? LOL Other than a fresh fruit assortment I have no clue.

Do you have a blender?  If so, there’s this awesome smoothie, it tastes like a milkshake:


1 c. soy milk

1 frozen banana

1 tsp peanut butter

1 tbs chocolate protein powder

1/2 tsp cocoa powder


That makes one…so multiply by whatever…you might have to do a few batches but if they don’t like this they are hopeless!

I’m realllly boring in that for breakfast, I’ll only eat bran sticks with skimmed milk.

Does it taste good? No, it tastes like cardboard.

Can you make it taste better? Yes, by adding raisins

Why do you eat it then crazy lady? Because it is low in fat, fills you up and gives you enough energy to do almost anything.

Therefore, give them a bowl of bran each. I guarantee they won’t ask you again…

The best part is, in bulk it’d be really cheap (Even with the added ‘treat’ of dried fruit). In all seriousness, this meal is the best part of my day.

That is strange that your boss is chosing to eliminate bread products all together. I’m sure someone at the meeting likes bread!

Anyway, you could do hard boiled eggs. I personally don’t like to eat a plain hard boiled egg, but that is about the healthiest thing with protein I can think of, that is not greek yogurt. If I use salt and pepper and mix the yolk with some mayo it is good. You can buy packs of them preboiled at the super market.

I think an egg frittata would be great, it’s similar to the egg casserole idea you mentioned. You can add all kinds of vegetables into the frittata and maybe bring in a side of sour cream, shredded cheese and chives for toppings. I would also do a quick side of baked potato wedges for those that miss having some kind of bread/carb.

What about make your own breakfast burrito bar?  Those that don’t want the tortilla carbs can do without.  Scrambled eggs, hash brown potatoes, bacon, ham, cheese, salsa… 

I really like the breakfast casserole ideas (sorry, no good recipes), or some sort of frittata.  I’d think a few different types of quiches would be the most simple – make them the night before and then bake the morning of (if you have enough time).

@Mrs. Spring: I have a awesome casserole recipe! 

  • 1 tube cresent rolls
  • 2 cup breakfast meat pre-cooked (I like to use sausage)
  • 2 cups hashbrowns, thawed
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1.5 cups cheddar jack cheese

In the bottom of a 13×9 pan roll the cresent rolls out flat. Then place the meat followed up the hashbrowns.  Beat the 5 eggs with the milk (add salt and pepper to taste) and pour in the pan. Top with the cheese. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
If you made the sausage (or maybe turkey sausage to make it healthier) the day before, all you would have to do is put the stuff in a pan and bake it.
