I'm starved the second my feet hit the floor. I am usually a cereal kinda gal (Special K chocolate) but the last few days I have been eating veggie sausage and eggs.

And coffee. I need something to get my lazy behind in gear! (I am not a morning person.) But to be honest I almost never finish my coffee.

I either have high fiber cereal with soy milk and ground flax, or oatmeal with peanut butter.

When I want protein, I'll mix dry oats with egg whites and nuke them...then put a slice of cheese on top to melt

If I have coffee, it's only 1 cup. My usual was 3-4!! :-O I still love my coffee, but I know I need to cut back on the caffine. Soda was pretty easy to cut back on, but there is NO REPLACEMENT for my coffee! But it's going okay. :-)

I'm also down to one cup of coffee instead of 2-3 and this week I'm eating a hard-boiled egg and a piece of fruit. This is only me second week of counting calories, and I'm trying to figure out what works for me. I think next week I'm doing to try healthy baked oatmeal. I'd like to have a go to breakfast and lunch that I can eat basically every day. I think I will to better if I don't have choices! How many calories should breakfast include if I'm trying to stay between 1200-1500 a day?

this morning I had another one of my favorites...it's healthy, too! A sweet potato, baked (microwaved for 4 minutes or so) with 1/2 cup cottage cheese on it. DELICIOUS!

and of course...coffee

Breakfast is my largest meal of the day and always includes both protein and carbs. If I don't eat right in the morning, I'm doomed for the rest of the day.

My brekkie plan is basically this:
Eggs and homemade sausage (seasoned ground turkey) OR Egg Bake (eggs, ham or sausage, veggies, cheese)
and
Cottage cheese and pineapple OR a protein shake (milk, protein powder, fruit or light chocolate soy milk and protein powder)
and
Steel cut oats (with just a bit of dried fruit & nuts, never sweetened) OR 1 slice Food for Life sprouted grain bread (plain or cinnamon) OR 1/2 Food for Life sprouted grain English muffin with a smidge of natural peanut butter

It's about 550-600 calories and I guess it might seem like a lot BUT dinner is grilled fish or chicken and a steamed veggie like broccoli which is about 350 calories. I need energy in the morning to get through the day, not at night for sleeping!
