I just got back from a FUN 3-day “Low Carb Road Trip” where I stayed at the Ramada Plaza Beach Resort in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. It was my second stay there, by the way – GREAT location!
They have a restaurant on-site, which is casual but gorgeous and full of natural light – as you can see in the picture. We enjoyed a late breakfast there on Sunday after our morning swim.
There were two options: A breakfast menu, and the breakfast buffet. It was late in the morning and getting close to lunch, so the buffet was “limited”. I did scan it first – scrambled eggs, bacon & various sausages were the low carb options (but not so fresh). And of course biscuits, gravy, waffles, pastries, etc.
I decided to order off the menu, because in addition to eating low carb (and wanting a hot, fresh meal!), I’m doing my best to stick to “real food” as well. I was feeling “iffy” on those buffet eggs – and you do have to watch scrambled eggs & omelets on buffets and in restaurants. 😉 Sometimes they aren’t “real eggs”, and sometimes they add “filler” (like pancake batter, even!) to make or keep them fluffy. Just FYI.
I decided to share the menu and see what everyone else would order:
Here’s a bigger picture of the restaurant breakfast menu.
What would YOU would order from the cafe for a healthy low carb breakfast? 😀

Here’s what I decided on for a healthy, low carb breakfast:
I ordered the steak & eggs – and I got FRIED eggs (to be on the safe side) – with strawberries and cottage cheese on the side, instead of toast & grits:
Strawberries & Cottage Cheese are DELICIOUS together. If you haven’t tried that yet, you should!! They make a great combination, and a safe low carb substitute for typical side items at restaurants. 😉
