What do you usually eat?

I eat toast but I'm trying to get away from it.
My alternates:
40g of cheese
Small yogurt with 50g of muesli and dark chocolate
Apple or banana with PB
Egg with thin slice of dark bread

Oatmeal almost every day.

My favorite way to prepare it is with 1 tbsp. cocoa powder (20 calories), 1/2 c frozen cherries (50 cal), 1/8 cup sliced almonds (85 cal), stevia (0 cal), and the oatmeal itself (dry measured 1/2, 150 calories). It's a total of 305 calories, filling, and delicious.

I love oatmeal, especially on cold mornings. Some days I eat cold cereal, especially like multi-grain cheerios.

I used to make oatmeal, with cinnamon, some chopped almonds (10 for some reason) and frozen blueberries, sometimes with unsweetened almond milk instead of water.

Now I'm on a smoothie kick, I don't know why I just love it, made in the blender, unsweetened almond milk (vanilla), couple kale leaves, handful of baby spinach (or two) a banana, 2 tbsps. wheat germ, sometimes a tbsp of homemade peanut butter (no oil or sugar added). Like a milkshake.

Cheerios with a banana is good too. I'm trying to stay away from the simple carbs whatever they're called that turn into sugar right away, something like oatmeal stays with you longer.

Coffee and vitamins are my breakfast!

I like to have "grazing food" for the morning because I don't like breakfast, but about an hour or so after I get to work, I start to feel hungry. Right now, my breakfast is my Yoli protein shake. Before I was doing my Yoli diet, I'd have nuts, string cheese, sliced apples, carrots or other veggies, a hard boiled egg, or some other easy to grab and munch, and sort of graze on type of finger food.

On days off, I still more or less graze in the morning or I don't eat breakfast at all.

usually 2 scrambled eggs and a liter of water between breakfast and lunch.
sometimes a 3 egg and ham omelet.
no bread for me! I quit carbs 2 weeks ago and never looked back!
I also find that protein heavy breakfasts keeps me fuller longer and keeps me from snacking between meals .

For me I like .5 cup yogurt, a banana or 1/2 an apple & some granola. As the weather is starting to turn, I'm going to switch up ocassionally to hearty oatmeal. Small glass skim milk to wash it all down.

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. :-)

Most mornings I fix oatmeal, sometimes cold cereal with skim milk, and every once in a blue moon toast with cinnamon sugar (just a tiny sprinkling). I work at 6AM, so on my 8AM break I eat either a container of Greek yogurt or a piece of fruit. This keeps me full and helps me keep from overdoing it at lunch.
