This morning I tried a new steel cut oats recipe that includes dried tart cherries and it tasted almost like cherry pie. It felt too delicious to be good for me...

with only one of the options here:
1tbsp bosenberry jam

I pretty much eat the same thing every morning:

1 coffee, with almond milk instead of creamer
1/2 cup egg whites
multigrain bread with laughing cow lowfat cheese wedge

egg whites give me enough protein to sustain me until 11am, for my late morning snack!

When I got sick, I found that the addition of breakfast became necessary to avoid nausea. Cereal or other carby foods didn't help, or would make it worse. I started cooking up a gigantic batch of scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage and tortillas, with shredded cheese. I make about 2 dozen breakfast burritos, put them in the fridge and everyone in my family of 5 is allowed to have one a day (the goal is to last a week). I love it! It's easy to heat, carry and eat. I measure each portion with a measuring cup so I know the calories are more or less the same in each one.

almond milk is great, I have some steel cut oats in the cupboard, need to cook them up. I'm having oatmeal with almond milk, walnuts, wheat germ, frozen blueberries, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.

Does anyone besides me not eat breakfast? At this age, to lose anything, I find I have to keep my daily calories below 1200. I'm not usually that hungry in the mornings anyway, so I generally just have 2 cups of coffee. It seems like for me, once I start eating, I want to keep eating - so I try to put off the first meal of the day as long as possible. I usually have a 300 calorie lunch, and a 600 calorie dinner, with the final 300 calories in afternoon and evening snacks.

I ALWAYS eat some sort of breakfast. ALWAYS! I find it helps me start out on track thus stay on track all day long.
It can be as simple as some granola with a little yogurt & fruit. Or old fashioned oatmeal with a slice whole grain or dark rye toast. Or a scrambled agg with that same toast. I have about oz. of low-fat milk and of course MY COFFEE!!! No, coffee & Gail isn't awake nor pleasant the rest of the day....

Linda, I know what you mean about wanting to do anything. And also about wanting to continue the eating through the day. I just have these filling breakfast & I really don't feel hungry til lunch, if then. But I've found since I am on an eating schedule I never feel famish, deprived & the binges seem to be a thing of the past. I think a contented tummy is the key. I have a mix of all types of tastes that I love sweet, salt, etc... I think that is what knocks us off course. Not mixing it up & we miss that whatever we aren't eating. To wrap this up, see weight loss as a 3 legged stool...healthy balanced eating with exercise & support/encouragement. Lacking in one can cause your little stool to lean & fall over. OOooops!

Today was an oatmeal day. Really cold out there & I had plenty of time this AM. YUMMY!!!

I have always been a cereal person and I still have that but I tried a friatta(okay, it's a glorified omlette) and I fell in love with them. You can put any veggies in them and they're super easy to make. Last week it was a Spinach Fritatta with all kinds of veggies and cheese. Surprisingly not too high in points either!
