Can anyone recommand a good tasting cereal?
 
I am getting sick of eggs and would like to try something else. It doesn't
need to be cereal. Thanks

Have you tried soft-boiling an egg (or hard boil) and eating directly from
the egg with a little spoon? (You will also need an egg decapitator tool and
egg stand.)
You can try to find specialty eggs and do this. Especially the larger ones.
Ostrich eggs come to mind, haha.
As far as cereal goes, I saw low-carb HOT cereal at WalMart (next to LC
baking and pancake mixes).

Think outside of the traditional breakfast ideas. As I sit here and read
your post I am having turkey and cheese with a side of mayo - and I plan on
having a couple of celery sticks. Certainly not "traditional" breakfast
foods! Leftovers are wonderful in the AM. If you have time - cook a
hamburger. Just some ideas - hope this helps.

For breakfast I have been rotating between (1) eggs or eggs & chicken
sausages, (2) baked, marinated tofu with cheese melted over it, and (3) a
flax meal and almond breakfast mix of my own devising. On weekends, I make
low-carb pancakes according to a recipe on Jenny's website (follow the link
in her signature). Option (2) is not induction food, I think, but should be
fine afterwards - 2 oz of the stuff I use is plenty and has 2 g net carbs.
You should be able to find it at a large supermarket; there may be several
flavors so read labels for carb content and try one that sounds good to you.
I use Trader Joe's brand, "Asian" flavor. For oprion (3), I posted my
mixture a week or two ago, and other people have mixtures of their own that
are frequently posted. Many people just take a few tablespoons of ground
flax seeds, some splenda and some cinnamon, and add hot water. That's the
simplest version.

If you have access to a Trader Joe's their More & Less cereal has 7 grams of
carbs, no artificial ingredients, a nice crunch and a cinnemon taste. Eaten
with half a cup of Hood Carb Countdown milk it keeps me fed and not
thinking about food for hours.

I'm gonna make some bread pudding with LC bread, Carb Countdown
milk, etc. Maybe pumpkin, maybe plain like Nancy H. posted
about. That will be breakfast for quite a few days.

Is that soy-y? I forget whether you eschew soy.

I really like the Atkins Crispy Almond cereal. High in fiber and protein, also!

My favorite breakfast is a fruit (blueberries, strawberries) smoothie
with sweetener, ice, nuts, whey protein powder and liquid (water, no
calorie soda, or other low carb liquid such as low carb milk,
soymilk).

Bran, flaxseed meal (you can grind 'em in your blender), and a little
protein powder mixed together makes a pretty good hot cereal. You can
find recipes via google.

If you're on maintenance, the best tasting hot cereal is "old
fashioned" style OATMEAL. It has 11 grams of carbs per half a cooked
cup, is high in protein and fiber, is dirt cheap and tastes great. (I
put peanut butter or Smart Balance in it to prevent cravings... and
make it taste better.)

Not quick cooking or instant.. too glycemic.
