And why?

If you could improve it, what would you do tomorrow?

I'm still contemplating what to eat...I want a yogurt/banana crunch, (One crumbled graham cracker, then a layer of sliced banana and topped with low-fat vanilla yogurt- approx 300 calories). Yummm, it tastes kind of like the old fashioned banana pudding my mom used to make. BUT, there is not much protein in that and I know I'll be hungry before lunch...so I'll probably have a couple eggs with some toast.

Good Morning!!

This morning I was running 3 kids to 3 different schools. We had birthday parties all weekend and I didn't make it to the market so I ended up with a plain McDonalds Egg McMuffin and black coffee with 2 equal. Total calories were around 300. Not too bad but tomorrow I will have something much healthier.
Have a great day!:hug:

I just had a granola bar (140 calories) and a yogurt. I'll have an apple or orange for a snack around 10:15-10:30 or so. I'm going to grab myself a cup of tea now. :wave:

It's cold out here today so I felt like something warm and creamy so I made Farina. I'm sick, and my mother used to make that for us all the time in the winter so it is definitely a comfort.

So, Farina, plus homemade Pear Butter (sugar/fat free!) for some flavor, a Lady Apple, and some Almonds.

I usually end up eating the Apple and Almonds later as a snack though.

Also, added to the mix is some tea with lemon and honey, to help with the whole sickness issue.

Does anyone else have seasonal eating rules, or am I the only strange one? For example, in the summer I usually have yogurt based breakfasts, but I never have those in the winter because they are cold! In the winter I have to have oatmeal based breakfasts (or something similar) because they are warm and toasty, but never in the summer. Same goes for soups in the winter and salads in the summer.

I want a honeycrisp. I have already bought all of them I could find this year. I wish you could get them all year. They are so yummy.

I had a piece of toast with PB and 8oz of 1% milk. I meant to have a banana with it but got to running late and forgot it.

I know! I buy some whenever I see them at the store, even when they are $3.00 a lb!! I so wish they grew all year too. They are by far, the best apple I have had....ever!

Egg, egg whites, bacon, cheese and a wee tiny bit of pineapple. Yum! I wouldn't change a thing for tomorrow unless I'm in the mood for something else. Protein and fat always keeps me full in the morning.

I had 2 pieces of WW toast with a pat of Country Crock Light.

I had it because I was craving carbs. This bread is LOADED with fiber though, so it's not too bad. And only 45 calories per slice. :)

I agree on the cold thing. I struggle with water, salad ... In fact I just made a half pot of decaf because it's warm.

The same thing I eat 97% of the time. A serving of Oatbran (It's like whole wheat cream of wheat). I add honey, pecans, and raisins to my bowl, then mix it. Mmmmm!. Also a banana and a cup of tea. It hits the spot.

I had some lowfat cottage cheese with some almonds, homemade granola, dried gogi berries and maple syrup on top. It's one of my favorite breakfasts. For about 350 calories it's incredibly satisfying and gives me lots of energy! I can't stand eating the same thing every day, though, so tomorrow I'll probably go with something else, maybe an omelet with mushrooms and black beans. After that, Kashi waffles with banana slices and walnuts...

Steel cut oatmeal with a tbsp of honey. Mmmm! Also a cup of milk to drink with it.

I just can't do fruit/yogurt in the morning. I'll be starving by time I walk out the door for work!

What I eat nearly every morning: 1/2 C rolled oats, topped with water and microwaved - then add 1/4C frozen blueberries, 2T sunflower kernels, no-cal sweetener and 1/4 C 1% milk. I don't always add the nuts or seeds, but there is usually fruit in there of some sort.

Oatmeal. I will probably have eggs tomorrow.
I have to remember to buy canned pumpkin when I do my grocery shopping so that I can mix some with my oatmeal - I think Nelie eats it that way.

I feel so unhealthy compared to all of you! I had 2 of the Fiber One toaster pastries and a bottle of water. 390 calories, 10 grams of Fiber and 8 grams of protein. I have to eat a lot of my calories before about 3 pm, so bigger breakfasts are the norm for me.

(Hope its OK to jump right in, I've been inactive for a long while, and want to get back into it for motivation)

This is going to sound like a weird combo...

But I have 2 rice cakes (with lots of fiber in them, 45 cal a piece) and 1 cheese stick (part skim milk...Mozzarella). Also an apple that I ended up eating about an hour and half after the rest of it.

I have eating firs thing in the morning, so I get up and drive to work and eat there.

I don't know what I will do different tomorrow... I have apples, oranges and bananas for fruit this week.... so everything will likely be the same, only with a different fruit.

A home-made egg McMuffin.
1 slice canadian bacon, 1 slice low-fat cheese, 1 egg pan fried in cooking spray, 1 English muffin. I eat this for a total of 5 WW flex points.

My alternate breakfast is 2 four-inch wheat pancakes, 1 TBSP peanut butter, 1/4 cup SF syrup and a banana.

A double fiber english muffin with pizza sauce, 2% mozzarella, and a slice of canadian bacon - heated in the toaster oven. Breakfast pizza is my go-to breakfast option.

My breakfast is usually in 2 parts.

7:00am - smoothie with flax seed, 1/2 banana, peach slices & unsweetened almond milk. I drink that while I drop the kids at daycare and drive 1 hour to work.

9:00am - 2 eggs, 2 slices turkey bacon, 1 slice whole grain bread.

Tomorrow I'll probably do egg whites. I typically have eggs, egg whites or a mix of the 2 every day.

Have you ever tried Egg Beaters or anything like that? I just discovered them last week. Well, I used to eat them in college, but that was a loong time ago. lol.

Anyway, they cook just like eggs. I made an omelet with them, with some fat free cheese and some onions, and it was SOOOO good. 30 calories per 1/4 cup (which is equal to 1 egg), no fat, no cholesterol. Yay! :)

Where do you get the oatbran? Any idea of the calorie content?

I love 2 cups of reduced sugar frosted flakes with 1 cup of skim milk - 316 calories, or 2 packets of oatmeal with skim milk.

I eat the same thing practically everyday. Kashi Go-Lean Crunch with 2% milk at 6:15, then either a banana or a couple of peanut butter crackers around 9. I've found that if I don't have this particular cereal I'll be ravenous all morning.

And why?

If you could improve it, what would you do tomorrow?


I have two organic, cage free eggs, two pieces of whole wheat toast with organic butter and a bunch of vitamins.

Why? Because of the vitamins and nutrients found in eggs and butter. Bread, because, well, what else would I do with my butter? :p
