diet restrictions - breakfast ideas

I go through times when I am good about counting my carbs and times I throw it all out the window and do what I want. I find I feel better and have more energy when I watch my carbs. I think breakfast is the hardest as I have to watch cholesterol too and I get so sick of eggs! Any suggestions for a good low carb breakfast that doesn't include foods I hate (tomatoes and onions and peppers)?

This morning I had a low carb fried Cherry Pie made with a low carb tortilla and no sugar added pie filling. There is only 5 g of carbs in the tortilla and the pie filling has only 8 g per 1/3 cup and it only takes 2 tablespoons so this is only half of the 1/3 cup which makes that 4 g, there is only 9 g of carbs in this pie. So you can even add a tablespoon of whipped cream on top. I was not in the mood for eggs and bacon or any omelet. I do somestimes eat a bowl of oatmeal (with diced apples and sprinkled with cinnamon). You can find some recipes on my low-carb blog. BTW cheeries and cinnamon help reduce your blood sugar. http://low-carb-diabetic-recipes.blogspot.com

I use tofu, and bean cured bean curd, for breakfast. I fry the tofu in thin slivers and use garlic and paprika to season. I love it. It is great with turkey bacon, and it is also good just with toast or a taco. I use soft tacos alot too, brakfast burritos, with re-fried beans and goat cheese, on a soft taco, is good too. I pretty much stick to this very strict diet. No sugar, no caffeine, no chocolate, no red meat, it works most of the time, but I do have my hard moments too.
