    One of my favourite breakfast plates currently looks like this:

    Omlette (3 eggs, 1-3g carbs)
    Cheese (~1g carbs)
    3 x Bacon/1 x Gammon (0 carbs)
    Baked Beans (10-20g carbs depending on portion size)

    As you can see, the baked beans are letting the side down here. But what can I replace them with so the meal isn't too dry? Obviously I'm aiming for low-carb.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Acron.

    How do you feel about fried Tom's ? A 1/2 can of Asda Chopped Tom's is only 5.8g carbs as opposed to your beans around 16g carbs. There is as much juice as you want, and they taste nice. :D

    Grilled tomatoes? Fresh ones are superb at the moment.

    I also make my scrambled eggs deliciously moist
    2 eggs into a pyrex basin, beat with a fork, add a tablespoon or two of double cream and a knob of butter( plus any seasoning you like), beat again. put into microwave on full power. Watch through the door and when the egg starts to rise in the bowl, Take it out and keep beating again until it cooks in its own heat. Should have the lovely creamy texture you get in good hotels.

    Ken! Tomatoes! Of course! I'll give this a go actually.

    Also, just noticed you're in Sutton Coldfield! I'm a Wolverhampton kid, living in Leamington Spa now. Stone's throw ;)

    Wow, I didn't know we were allowed bacon.

    What about McDonald's is that okay?

    I think the only way to eat a McDonalds is to throw away the bun and the fries of course!! :D
    A quarter pounder is 37gm of carbs. 4 oz Cheeseburger is 33gm. double quarter pounder with cheese is 40 carbs.
