Eggs are a wonderful diet food yet many people overlook this when trying to lose weight. Eggs are high in protein and if you use the whites only, they are extremely low in fat. While most people are familiar with savory egg dishes such as omelets or eggs cooked over easy and sprinkled with salt and pepper, you can create sweet egg dishes. Sweetened eggs can take the place of breakfast baked goods and allow you to have a treat without feeling deprived. Give it a try one morning and this simple low-carb recipe is sure to help you reach your goals.

Things You Will Need

1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1/4 cup blueberries
1 tsp. splenda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Sugar free pancake syrup (optional)

Step 1

Combine one whole egg and two egg whites in a cereal bowl and whisk them together as if you were about to make scrambled eggs.

Step 2

Stir 1 tsp. splenda, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 cup frozen or fresh blueberries into the eggs. You may not need to add splenda at all as the blueberries will sweeten the eggs, it just depends on your own personal sweet tooth.

Step 3

Heat up a small skillet on the stove over medium heat. Spray the hot skillet with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 4

Pour the egg mixture into the hot skillet and cook the eggs just as you would cook scrambled eggs. When the whites are completely set, slide the eggs onto a plate.

Step 5

Serve the eggs with any type of breakfast meat you like for a low carb breakfast. If you are feeling adventurous, try adding a little sugar free pancake syrup over the eggs to mimic the flavor of blueberry pancakes or french toast.
