Diabetic / BP / Cholesterol Christmas Breakfast

So, given that we are currently in separate locations, my parents and I are postponing Christmas until this Saturday and I have offered to host them for dinner at my place. I love to cook for them and I have a lot of ideas, but I also have a lot of hindrances.

My mother has requested a "breakfast for dinner" theme, including potentially: pancakes, waffles, french toast, etc. The problem being that my father is diabetic and has high cholesterol and my mother has high BP and cholesterol. I have a waffle iron that works really week, and I can make pancakes with the best of them, but I am not sure that I have any good tricks for making them low calorie / sugar / carb, etc.

Does anyone have any good recipes for a breakfast-like dish that might fit into the above health categories? I have sugar-free maple syrup already for my father, but as for the rest, I am a little stumped. I have made low-calorie things like that before, but the texture never seems to work quite the way that I would like, and since it's Christmas (ish, anyway) I don't want to give them something that isn't really tasty, you know?

Thanks in advance for any and all ideas!!!
