I have oatmeal almost everyday. I started doing this so i would stay full all morning and it works but oh so boring. What healthy breakfast do you have?

I usually toast a double-fiber English muffin and spread it with Laughing Cow cheese, and also eat some cheese, greek yogurt, or cottage cheese for added protein.

Or a bowl of Kashi Go Lean with skim milk, though again, I usually need a bit more protein than it provides.

Or a smoothie of frozen strawberries, a scoop of vanilla whey protein, skim milk, and two tablespoons of ground flax seed. Yummy!

I eat at around 6 am. All of these will keep me until 10ish, which is when I get a cup of coffee and eat a South Beach protein bar to get me to lunchtime. I often eat lunch around 1ish.

I'm having an egg white omelet with fresh tomatoes and bell peppers from my garden :) Depending on if I can eat it by myself (my 2 year old will probably help me) I might have an orange too.

1 cup honey nut cheerios with light silk soy milk and half a banana slice on top of the cereal. delish! if there's any milk left i throw in a couple frosted mini wheats :devil:

I almost always have a bowl of oatmeal topped with fruit. The night before, I measure equal amounts of oatmeal and unsweetened vanilla almond milk into a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning I pop it in the microwave for a minute or two, add fruit, and it's ready. This morning, I also had 1/4 of a cantalope, too. Yum!

I tend to eat the same thing for breakfast every morning. Right now I am having 2 slices of toast using whole wheat bread and scrambled eggs using eggbeaters instead of whole eggs. I am very satisfied and it is several hours before I get hungry.

I am eating 6 grain cereal, blueberries, nonfat plain yogurt, almonds and almond milk.

I sort of adapted this recipe from Julie08. It is AWESOME and satiating!

06-12-2009, 10:06 AM
Right now it's vanilla yogurt topped with Strawberries and splenda! Mmmmm

Sometimes it's 1 slice of WW bread, 1 Tbsp of Peanut butter and a couple slices of banana, folded in 1/2 with a cup of skim milk.

It is funny what creatures of habbit we all are. I also have mostly the same thing everyday. I am not usually hungry in the morning but I make myself eat something. An apple, and either fat free cottage cheese, or a boiled egg.
However I may make something different tomarrow.

Double fiber whole wheat english muffin toasted, 1 egg + 2 egg whites microwaved, 1 slice of 2% sharp cheddar cheese all put together as an egg muffin-sandwich-thing. :) Yum! 300 calories and holds me easily for about 4 hours.

06-12-2009, 10:33 AM
I eat the same thing every morning. Kashi Go Lean, 1/2 oz of walnuts, strawberries if in season, and light vanilla soymilk. Plus a cup of Chai tea with fat free half-n-half.

06-12-2009, 10:51 AM
either a piece of whole wheat toast, an egg and a slice of cheese, or 2 whole grain waffles with natural peanut butter and raspberry jam made into a sandwich. i sometimes add a bit of fruit (cherries, orange slices, etc). i also always have a full glass of water (with my mulit-vitamin and folic acid) and some black coffee...

06-12-2009, 10:54 AM
For the last couple days I have been cooking an egg sandwich. It's an arnolds sandwich thin with one cooked egg, 1.5 oz lean ham slices and one wedge of laughing cow cheese. It is delicious! I am excited for breakfast when I make this.

On the weekends, or the days I work from home, I eat something very similar. Double fiber ww english muffin, toasted and spread with Laughing Cow light garlic and herb, topped with poached eggs. Numilicious!

My go-to breakfast is very light because I get up and immediately eat my breakfast/snack and to to the gym and I don't want a big meal sitting in my stomach. Then I eat a second snack when I get home again. It's almost always an Eggo low fat multigrain waffle toasted with a wedge of laughing cow light spread on it and topped with either some deli meat or a fried egg white. I usually also often have a small handful of nuts. When I'm not going to the gym that morning and I feel like a decent breakfast my favorite thing to make is fritata. I mix it all up in my cast iron skillet and throw the whole thing in the oven. I love ham, potato, jalapeno and cheddar but that one I only make on my higher calorie days. On the lower ones I fill it with veggies like peppers, onions, tomato, asparagus and feta or parmesan cheese.

Today it's sprouted grain toast, peanut butter and a small banana.

Oatmeal and a banana, and 30 oz of water. The same every morning! Gotta love the habit! :)

06-12-2009, 01:28 PM

Heavens, I thought I had a different breakfast everyday but this week I had a 1/2cup of cottage cheese with fruit (Canteloupe or a fresh peach) every day except one--and that day I had a 2 egg omelet.

Actually, that makes sense. I don't have room in my blasted kitchen to chop veggies for an omelet unless all my dishes are done and I'm really struggling with that (no dishwasher).

06-12-2009, 10:02 PM
i'm boring 1/2 cup cottage cheese, some fruit, and if i'm feeling crazy a Kashi granola bar with my coffee at work whooo gotta love a habit !

06-13-2009, 10:06 AM
Today my breakfast is instant grits with lite margerine, boca bacon, and blueberries.

06-14-2009, 12:41 AM
Today my breakfast was scrambled eggs with green onions and a few slices of oven-prepared bacon. Yum! :)

06-14-2009, 09:49 AM
Normally I eat breakfast but this week I have been in a funk food wise. I'm not hungry. You wouldn't think that would be a dilemma ...lol.

So I had a 4 oz glass of Bolthouse Mocha Protein drink.

06-14-2009, 10:37 AM
I usually either have a fruit smoothie with protien powder in it or an egg, some fruit and maybe an english muffin.

06-14-2009, 10:55 AM
Today is my splurge of fiber one pancakes and sugar free syrup. 4 points for 3 decent sized pancakes & 1/4 cup of syrup! :D

06-14-2009, 11:10 AM
my breakfast every morning is 1 cup of kashi honey sunshine cereal, 1/2 cup of soy milk and 1/2 cup of blueberries. If I am really running late I may have a slim fast bar, but that's rare

06-14-2009, 11:36 AM
Today I had a cinnamon raison English muffin with peanut butter and some strawberries on the side.

06-14-2009, 11:44 AM
I woke up late and wanted to go workout but was kind of hungry, so I had a Fiber One yogurt with a sprinkling of chop walnuts.

06-14-2009, 12:23 PM
I'm also a creature of habit and 6 mornings out of the week I have 1/2 a PB sanwhich on WW bread and split a banana with my 9 month old. On the occasional morning I will cereal.

06-14-2009, 12:37 PM
Homemade latte. It keeps me full.

06-14-2009, 02:37 PM
I have the same thing on weekdays (some sort of fiber or protien granola bar, yogurt, and an apple) and the most random stuff on the weekends.

Today was a Fiber One Banana Choc Chip Muffin (a treat as it's more calories than I typically use on something that's not very filling) and my yummy 53 cal latte (1c coffee, 1/4c FF Half and Half, 1/4 c Almond Dream, 1Tbs White Choc. SF Syrup, 1Tsp Choc SF Syrup)
