S or S Helper? Jan 5, 2013 8:33:12 GMT -5

Hello There, I just have a question...I have read and re-read the S chapter in your book and I still think I'm not really grasping it all.
I posted a picture of my breakfast this morning. The contents were...a pancake (made with egg whites, 0% Greek yogurt, a dab of vanilla extract, a pinch of stevia (KALS pure extract is my stevia of choice - not that it matters), and 1.5 tablespoons of oat bran.
I then fried an egg on a non stick skillet (just having wiped the skillet with a napkin that had olive oil on it). (I do realize I could have had lots of butter instead, I just wasn't up for that this morning)
I then rounded it out with a lovely cup of tea sweetened with Stevia.
SO - my question is. I Love a pancake with a whole egg on top...it's one of my all time favorite breakfasts. This oat cake has less then 8 carbs in it. There are no preservatives or franken food type qualities to this pancake. A half a cup of blue berries has 10 carbs and is an allowable addition to an S meal. So my reasoning tells me...This meal CAN be counted as an S meal. However, your book specifically says "No grains at first...they can only be added in later as S Helpers" (short version of sentence on page 74 three quarters down the page). So is my reasoning correct? Is this an accceptable S breakfast?
Second Question: As for the Franken foods. I read the book to mean that they are an acceptable addition to an S meal and I thoroughly understand that they should be used only once in a very long while. BUT for an acceptable S meal...How much dreamfields pasta can go on my plate and still qualify as an S Meal?
Would it be safe to say that up to 10g of carbs are acceptable in an S meal?
I hope I was able to get my questions out clearly enough. I am by nature hugely affected by the 'letter of the law' and I'm trying to gauge at 'spirit' at this point (if that makes any sense to you!).
Thanks so much for your help!
