My favorite breakfasts:

1. Fat free Trader Joe's Greek Yogurt with honey (120 calories), sliced fruit (about 75 calories). To get it up to 400, you could top with sliced almonds.

2. 1/2 cup of oatmeal made with water, topped with a couple of big tablespoons of apple butter (around 200 calories), add chopped walnuts and apples to get to 400

3. Whole grain toast with natural peanut butter, I LOVE melty peanut butter on hot toast.

This sounds weird, but I love it:

1 package Quaker "weight control" instant oatmeal, cinnamon (it's the only cinnamon-but-not-apple I can find)
25 grams wheat bran
150 grams unsweetened apple sauce
NO water.

Mix all the ingredients together and eat. It turns into a chewy paste that is very satisfying and easy to take with you if need be.

278 calories and 18.5 grams of fiber. Carb heavy, but it's my carb meal of the day.

I find most food nauseating in the morning so I have to generally either drink my breakfast or eat something 'light'.

This morning's breakfast:
1 1/2 cups of fresh pineapple - 120 calories
2 cups of fresh coconut water - 90 calories

Yesterday's breakfast (spinach smoothie) - 110 calories
1 cup of spinach
1/4 lemon
1/4 cup beet
1 celery stalk
1/2 cup cucumber
1 tbsp ginger
1/2 medium apple

Protein Shake/smoothie:

1 scoop Whey protein 120 calories
1/2 cup silk soy milk 50 calories
1/2 cup acai berry juice (any juice variety) 60 calories
6 oz frozen berries (blueberrie, raspberries, and strawberries) 60 calories

290 calories

If you would prefer a smoothie over a shake, omit the milk and add juice. The calorie total then is 300.

One of my favorites is an omelet made with 2 egg whites, around 3 tablespoons of black bean and corn salsa (Newman's Own is my favorite), chopped yellow bell pepper, chopped onion, 2 Kraft fat free "sharp cheddar" cheese slices, it all comes to about 200 calories or so which leaves me room to add in a black bean burger or some chicken or deli ham if I want it to be more filling.

I make sausage, egg, and cheese "muffins" using Nature's Own Sandwich Rounds, Honeysuckle White Turkey Breakfast Sausage, Egg Beaters, and Kraft 2% Singles.

Calories per "Muffin" - 355
Nature's Own Sandwich Rounds - 100 calories
Sausage - 1/6 of roll is 100 calories, but I use 1/4 and smash it into a big patty which makes it 150 calories.
Egg Beaters - I use a whole small container which is 60 calories
Kraft 2% Singles - 45 calories

I cook all my sausage patties at the same time, refrigerate, and then just microwave them as needed. I also nuke my EB in a small bowl. This makes them the perfect size for my sandwich rounds.

I found a low calorie eggs Benedict on hungrygirl.com:

1/2 whole wheat extra fiber English muffin- 60
1 slice grilled ham- 70
1 poached egg- 70
2 tbsp "hollindaise"- 70
8 oz oj- 110
= 380 cals

Low cal "hollindaise":
1 tsp lemon yogurt (I found this too sweet so I use plain yogurt w/ lemon juice)
1 tsp light butter
1 tsp dijonnaise (helman's)
1 tbsp light mayo

Mix it all together and I add garlic powder, salt and pepper for flavor. Then microwave for 20 seconds and add a little bit of water if you want a thinner sauce. Delish and a lot fewer cals than real eggs Benedict!

I like hungry girl's ideas. But some of her stuff does not make sense to me. If her "fake" hollandaise sauce is is 70 calories then it has the same amount of calories as 1/4 of a cup of packaged sauce (the one you mix water and stuff with). Granted the real stuff probably has more fat. But sometimes I would just rather have the real thing, especially when the real thing isn't any or much higher in calories.

Now I want eggs benny - maybe that's what I will make for dinner. lol

I didn't know there was a packaged hollindaise that had 70 cals for 1/4 cup but I know I have made it myself before from scratch and it was def way more than that seeing as it's pretty much pure butter and egg yolks. Anyway, I like it!

My usual breakfast consists of:

3 slices of turkey bacon (45 calories)
1 egg (70) or eggbeaters
1 slice of earthgrains 35 calorie wheat bread (35 calories)
1 tbsp of welch's peach preserves (10 calories)

Then if I'm still hungry (which is less likely), I eat a small apple (45 calories)

Total 160 - 205 calories

I prefer smaller breakfasts and I'm usually in a rush and don't have time to actually cook anything.

My favourite "grab and go" breakfast are the Pineapple Upside-Down Muffins from eatingwell.com. Each muffin is only 211 calories with 6g of fat. I like to make a large batch of them on a day off and then freeze them in my freezer. In the morning, I pop one in the microwave for about 30 seconds and voilą! Instant hot breakfast, ready to go!

Pineapple Upside-Down Muffins

Ingredients
Topping
* 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
* 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, or pecans (optional)
* 1 10-ounce can pineapple slices

Muffins
* 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
* 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
* 2 large eggs
* 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
* 1/4 cup canola oil
* 2 tablespoons pineapple juice, or orange juice
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, (not drained)
* 1 cup grated carrot, (1 large)
* 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
* 3/4 cup raisins, preferably baking raisins (see Ingredient note)
* 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, or pecans (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

2. To prepare topping: Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar into each muffin cup. Sprinkle nuts, if using, over the sugar. Stack pineapple slices and cut into 6 wedges. Place 2 wedges in each muffin cup.

3. To prepare muffins: Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.

4. Whisk eggs and brown sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in oil, juice and vanilla. Stir in crushed pineapple. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Stir in carrot, oats, raisins and nuts, if using. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups (they'll be quite full).

5. Bake the muffins until the tops are golden brown and firm to the touch, 15 to 25 minutes. Immediately loosen edges and turn muffins out onto a baking sheet. Restore any stray pineapple pieces and nuts. Let cool for at least 10 minutes. Serve upside-down, either warm or at room temperature.



On the weekends, my boyfriend and I will have waffles with maple syrup, butter, and sausage. It sounds really decadent, but in reality it's not (at least not calorie-wise)!

2 Eggo Low-Fat Waffles: 140 calories
1 Tbs. maple syrup: 50 calories
1 Tbs. butter: 90 calories (or, you can do just 1/2 Tbs for just 45 calories)
1 link of chicken sausage: 120 calories

For a grand total of 400 calories even!

Hi and welcome to my first post.

My two favorite, calorie-counting breakfasts:

330 cal.
Nature's Own light english muffin
1 egg white
1 serving Egg Beaters
chopped vegetables (tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, onions, etc.)
banana or Kashi TLC cereal bar
4 oz. orange juice cut with 4 oz. Perrier

385 cal.
Two whole wheat waffles
1/2 cup fat free greek yogurt
1/2 cup strawberries or blueberries
1 tbsp chopped walnuts
1 tbsp honey

Layer everything on top of the waffles and enjoy with an Americano

I pretty much have a handful of ideal breakfasts to choose from and stick with only that to make things easier.

These are all great ideas! Someone mentioned fresh coconut water, which is a delicious way to start the day. We drain coconuts the night before and leave the water in the fridge so that it's icy cold the next day.

Spinach Egg Breakfast Sandwich (285 calories)

1 thick slice of rye bread (optionally, toasted)
15g of feta cheese.
1/2 cup of spinach wilted in 1tsp of olive oil (don't forgot salt + dash of nutmug)
1 poached egg

Smear the feta cheese on top of the rye bread. Top with spinach, then the poached egg. Slice into the egg and let the yolky goodness soak through everything before digging in.

Add chives, tomatoes, zucchini, roasted eggplant, or any other vegetabless for variety!

that is interesting about coconut water. our dominick's had coconuts on sale for $1 so we picked one up, and it has been sitting here because we don't know what to do with it! do you just drain it and drink it? what about the meat?

theresac
04-13-2010, 04:55 PM
Eat the coconut meat! It's delicious! Where I live, coconuts are a snack you can buy on the side of the road. The vendor takes a machete, hacks of the top, and you drink the water straight from the shell. Then he scoops out the meat and serves it in an open coconut shell. So perfect on a hot summer day!

If the meat's hard (depends on age of the coconut), you can also shred it, dry it, then use it for baking. I keep it up to a week in the fridge, but I bet it freezes well too.

I thought I would post my favorite breakfast smoothie that I have been making the past week. So yummy, and pretty good for you! And it keeps you full!

0.5C frozen blueberries
0.5C sliced fresh strawberries
0.5C vanilla soy milk (if you have light, cal count will be less) 50cal
0.25C Fage 0% Greek yogurt
2TBSP wheat germ (i use bob red mill's) 60cal
1TBSP Skippy Natural crunchy peanut butter
1tsp Splenda

Add all ingredients to blender and puree until smoothie-like consistency. (When I eat this for breakfast, I don't eat fruit the rest of the day due to sugar content, but great way to get it in!)

TOTALS: 335 cal, 12.0g fat, 46.6 g carbs (mostly healthy carbs!), 17.2g protein.

If you have protein powder to add I'm sure that would be great as well.

Mmmmm breakfast is a meal I always look forward to the night before!!!

French Toast!
2 slices of Heiner's 35 calorie bread, or some other low calorie bread - 70 calories
1/4-1/2 cup egg beaters - 30-60 calories depending
Cinnamon - 5-10 calories depending on use
and 1/4 cup Sugar Free Syrup - 15 calories depending on brand

Eggo Whole Grain Waffles - 70 calories each, so 2 for 140 calories with 1/4 cup sugar free syrup for an added 15 calories!

orrrrr 60 calorie tortilla, with egg beaters (30-60 calories), tomato, basil, onion, whatever!

Low calorie breakfasts are great and many options are available!

My new favorite breakfast:

Nonfat greek yogurt (one container) - 100 calories
1/2 cup Go Lean Kashi cereal - 95 calories
1 cup berries or 1 banana (1 cup of fruit) - 85-125 calories

About 300 calories based on the type of fruit.

This keeps me full for several hours due to all of the protein in the yogurt and the cereal!

On the weekends I like this omelette:

1 cup egg whites - 120
1/4 cup reduced fat feta cheese - 75
2 lowfat turkey sausage patties chopped up - 90
1 cup mushrooms (or other veggies) - 15
1 Fiber One english muffin with butter spray - 100

Over the weekend I found a pancake recipe...

1/2 cup whole wheat or wheat oat flour (200 cal based on flour at my house)
1/2 cup reduced fat milk/buttermilk (65 using my milk)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg white, lightly beaten (15 cals as per Sparkpeople)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients together and stir until JUST combined. Let sit 10 minutes before cooking.

Entire recipe (about 3 pancakes, using 1/4 cup batter each) is 280 calories. I made them and put FF cream cheese and peanut butter on once, then made a not-so-successful blueberry sauce for the second. They're fluffy yet filling. Love love them.

MINDIV ~ E. D. SMITH makes a nice no-sugar added pancake syrup that is only 10 calories per tablespoon and it tastes good too -- would be nice with your l/c pancakes ... :D



HAM & EGG MUFFIN BREAKFAST

I like a homemade egg-muffin for breakfast sometimes for only 255 cals: heat ham slice in pan; break egg on top & cook through; top with cheese to melt (only takes seconds); meanwhile toast muffin & spread with ketchup if desired; top with ham/egg; and eat ... yum!

1 slice lean round ham (30)
1 large egg (80)
.5 no fat cheese slice (15)
1 x Weight Watcher's ww sandwich thin (110 cals)*
2 tsp ketchup (20)

* OR use a wg english muffin for a few more cals depending on brand. This is so low in calories that you could add some fruit and a coffee with this breakfast no problem (as I do). :D


HAM & MUSHROOM OMELETTE: total 240 calories (could add coffee & fruit with this too).

1.5 large eggs (100 cals) [1 whole + 1 white]
3 mushrooms sliced (5 cals?)
small slice lean ham (30 cals)
.5 no-fat cheese slice (30 cals)
.5 slice bran toast (55 cals)
tsp ICBINB (20 cals)

Heat sliced ham & mushrooms in non-stick pan (I use scissors for this); top with beaten egg(s); cook through then top with cheese and melt. Fold over and serve with toast.


QUICKIE BF: 1 x bran toast (110) with 1 tbl natural peanut butter (100) & coffee = 225 calories (+ fruit sometimes)

Half your daily fiber, very low fat and tons of protein for only 225 calories. I will often add a nonfat yogurt for an additional 100.

I generally eat the same thing every morning --

1 cup Cheerios............................110
1 cup vanillla flavored almond milk....95
hot tea with 1 tsp demerara sugar...15


or

1 cup Wheat Chex.......................108
1 cup vanillla flavored almond milk....95
hot tea with 1 tsp demerara sugar...15

or

2 eggs fried with cooking spray (olive oil type)....195
1 english muffin, dry, no butter........................130
hot tea with 1 tsp demerara sugar.....................15


Some days I have a very strange work schedule, and have to eat lunch only a couple of hours after I eat breakfast, so the cereal and milk are enough for me -- if I am working in the morning and it will be longer between breakfast and lunch I usually eat the egg breakfast cuz it will stay with me longer and the protein helps jump start my brain .

I never have time to eat bfast before I leave for work in the morning, so I always have to make sure I have a few grab-and-go options.

The Jimmy Dean Delightful line is great. All of their sandwiches are under 300cals. My favorite is the canadian bacon and egg, but the turkey sausage and egg is good too. The only one I wasn't crazy about was the bagel sandwich. They also have bowls that have eggs, turkey bacon or sausage, potatoes and cheese. They are yummy, filling, and under 300 calories.

My other go-to is the following, which I can throw together the night before and have it ready in the fridge for the morning:

1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1/2-1 cup frozen mixed berries (thawed)
Splenda to taste or 1tsp honey
then in the morning I add
1/4 cup of Kashi Go Lean on top for crunch.

It's very filling, has protein, fiber, and antioxidants!

My favorite for a long time was a well rounded breakfast (could've used some fruit though)

3 Egg whites scrambled (45 cal)
1 Morningstar sausage (80 cal)
1 slice of peanut butter toast (150 cal) or bowl of lower sugar oatmeal (130 cal)
1 activia light yogurt (70 cal)

With a hot cup of green tea, yum! Total calorie count 325-345 calories

I make fritattas on a regular basis. I make one pan at a time which can be cut into four days worth of breakfasts.

The recipe I used most recently:
4 eggs
12 egg whites
1 package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
8 oz sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup feta

Preheat oven to 350. Mix eggs and egg whites in a bowl. Sweat the mushrooms on medium heat in an oven proof skillet (cast iron is fantastic). Once the mushrooms have started to get tender add the spinach. Continue cooking for another 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the egg mixture. Stir until bits of scrambled egg appear. Let the egg mixture continue to cook over medium heat until the bottom sets. Place in oven until top is almost set. Sprinkle feta cheese over the top and turn the broiler on high heat. Watch closely at this time to keep from burning. The top will fully set and get a nice brown color. Cut into four pieces. Each piece has about 175 calories.

You can also use whole eggs or add any other ingredients that you have on hand.

I like combining 1 cup of cereal (130 calories) with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (60 calories). Sometimes I even substitute the cereal with 1/2 cup of granola (80 calories).

I really want to start freezing and prepping my own food for later, like healthy burritos and whole wheat pancakes. Here's a great recipe i found on spark.com

Greek breakfast wrap
1 cup hard boiled egg, chopped
1 cup red peppers, chopped
1 thin slice of onions, raw
1 oz feta cheese
100 grams jumbo black olives
3 tbsp fat free mayonnaise
1 tsp oregano, ground
1 thin slice red ripe tomato
Small whole-wheat pita,(4" dia)

Combine all ingredients except black olives, onion slices, and tomato slices in a covered container.
Refrigerate for later use.
When you want a wrap put 1/3 of the filling on a warm pita and add slices of onion, tomato and black olives.
Add a leaf of lettuce if you want a more salad-like wrap.

Number of Servings: 3
223.9 calories each

A piece of whole wheat toast with 1 T of peanut butter and 1 T of Trader Joe's Superfruit spread, piece of fresh fruit, black coffee. 310-333 calories, depending on what kind of fruit you choose. Another one would be two scrambled eggs cooked in 1 T of olive oil with one piece of whole wheat toast with 1 T of Trader Joe's Superfruit spread. 390 calories. Another one could one whole grain waffle with 1 C of frozen berries and 1 T of whipped cream and a Morningstar sausage patty. 305 calories. If you added one more waffle, that would push it to just barely over 400 calories. You could also add a carton of light yogurt to that to get it to around 400 calories.

I didn't read thru all these yet, so I hope this isn't already here.

My FAVORITE breakfast is:
Thomas' English Muffin Double Fiber Honeywheat toasted
Morningstar Farms Maple Flavored Breakfast Sausage
Slice of Kraft 2% American cheese

It's <300 calories and keeps me full until my midmorning snack.

Here are my two staples for the work morning:

Breakfast 1
Thomas English Light Multigrain English Muffin (Toasted) - 100
1 TB of Light Country Crock Butter - 50
1 TB of Creamy Peanut Butter - 90
Total Calories - 240

Breakfast 2 (Similar to KatsLovinLife)
Thomas English Light Multigrain English Muffin (Toasted) - 100
MorningStar Veggie Sausage Patty - 80
2% Kraft American Single - 45
1 TB Canola Hellman's Mayo - 45
Total Calories - 270

Both are very filling. Breakfast 1 gives me my peanut butter fix & Breakfast 2 was my solution to stop eating Fast Food breakfast! It is a yummy alternative to McDonalds McMuffin's - saves your pocket & your belly! :D

Egg, canadian bacon, and cheese omelet with 1/2 medium red potato hash browns. Sounds terrible, but totally isn't!

2 - 1/4 cup servings of "liquid eggs" (I use the Wal*Mart brand!)

60 calories, 12 g of protein, 0 g of fat, 1 g of carbs.

1 - 1.8 oz. Canadian bacon (Brand dependent, but shouldn't vary much!)

60 calories, 9 g protein, 2 g fat, 1 g carbs.

1 - Slice of Kraft Singles: Cheddar Sharp 2% Milk

45 calories, 4 g protein, 3 g fat, 1 g carbs.

1/2 - Medium red potato with skin

135 calories, 3.5 g protein, .25 g fat, 29.5 g carbs

1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil

60 calories, 0 g protein, 7 g fat, 0 g carbs

Seasonings of your choice! I use paprika and sometimes replace the olive oil with a Greek vinaigrette and it's awesome!

I cube up my 1/2 potato, place the pieces in a plastic bag to marinate and then throw in the oven on 350 until they're done to my liking, somewhere between 30-40 minutes depending on how big/small your cubes are. You can also boil the potato first to semi-soft, oil and spice, and finish in the oven or in a skillet!

Totals:

360 calories, 28.5 g protein, 12.25 g fat, 32.5 g carbs

Something your guy can eat with you and not feel like he's being forced to diet. :)

Edit: And, just an FYI, throw your 1/2 potato in a tupperware container/bowl face down in water to keep from browning so it's fresh for use later!

Steel cut oatmeal - about 1 cup (I make it big batches in the slow cooker and then freeze individual portions. With 1/2cup 1% milk and 10 grams brown sugar this fills you up and is SO much better that regular oatmeal. = 230 cals

Low carb wrap (80 cals 12g fiber), 2 TBS peanut butter 1 TBS jam, roll up and eat on the way to work. Yummy and filling = 325 cals

Breakfast Burrito
Makes 2 servings - appx. 20 mins. to prepare/cook

2 large eggs
1 TBSP Skim Milk
3 Turkey Sausage links (fit & active)
1/4 c. Diced tomatos & green chiles (drained)
1/4 c. diced mushrooms
1 slice chopped red onion
1/3 c. 2% Mild shredded cheddar
2 TBSP light sour cream
2 Whole Wheat Tortillas

Preheat oven to heat tortillas. Cook turkey sausage per package. Whisk eggs & milk then scramble. Chop up onion & mushrooms, add to cooked eggs. Add in tomatos & green chilies, mix well until warm. Chop up cooked sausage add to mixture. Add cheddar until mostly melted. Pile half of mixture on tortilla and top wiht 1 TBSP of sour cream!

It's so good, and very filling. You can switch out or add in what veggies you would like, or add some other toppings (hot sauce, salsa). All should not add too many calories.

1 burrito with filling = 363 calories

scrambled eggs and spinach:

~1Tbsp evoo-120 cals
2 eggs-140 cals
chopped spinach- negligible, i don't even count veggies calories but ~20 cals.
total= 280calories and it keeps you full.

you can even add in a cube of cheeze to melt for only about 100 more cals. or a slice of toast, or some fruit later in the morning. also, drink green tea with it, the warmth aids digestion and helps you feel fuller.

this works good for me because i notice that cereals and milk make me feel a bit sluggish in the mornings. i aviod starchy meals at breakfast like the plague!

I eat some variation of this open-faced breakfast sandwich every day:

1 TJ's multigrain "British" muffin: 160 calories
spread with 1 wedge of Laughing Cow cheese: 35 calories
covered with 1 scrambled egg and a ton of fresh tomatoes: 95 calories
with a side of broccoli slaw (w/a bit of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste): 35 calories

Total: 325 calories

Always leaves me full, never disappoints. I call it my "Breakfast of Champions" and I love that I can change it just a bit for a little variation (Ex: today I substituted raw cabbage for the broccoli slaw and used a little lemon juice instead of the cider vinegar.) Also loving the new Laughing Cow flavors for variety.

Oh- how could I forget?! And a liberal sprinkling of Chipotle Tabasco over the tomato scramble! This is key!

Spread 1 tbsp peanut butter on a whole-grain English muffin. Top with 1/2 apple, thinly sliced; 1 tbsp honey; a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve with remaining 1/2 apple. Only 387 Calories! With the added bonus of adding the apple, a natural fat burner :) Thank you Self Magazine!

Berry yogurt smoothie (I had this for breakfast this morning)

1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup raspberries or other fresh berries
1/4 cup plain yogurt
2 tbps splenda/stevia sweetner. This is optional. This is plenty sweetned by the berries, if you are sensitive to sweetness.

Blend!


This comes in at about 100 calories, give or take a bit.

2 slices hearty whole weat bread toasted: 200 cal
1/4 cup egg whites "fried" with cooking spray: 30 cal
1 oz smoked lean ham: 25 cal
1 laughing cow cheese wedge: 35 cal

Total = 290 calories

You can lower it more by choosing a different bread, but what I liked about it was that the sandwich felt very hearty and it made me feel full and very satisfied.

Not healthy, but it satisfies my need for a 'heavy breakfast' craving:

1 big Aidells smoked chicken apple sausage, sliced into little rounds and 'fried' with cooking spray until brown and juicy.
180 calories

1 half Sara Lee pita bread, toasted.
45 calories

I just tear off little pieces of the pita and eat it with my fingers with little bites of sausage. 225 calories total.

I have several:

1 medium banana
2 slices wheat toast with lemon curd (love lemons)
Total 280

1 package Kashi oatmeal (made with water)
1 banana
Total 280

My favorite:
2 flaxseed waffles (apple and cinnamon flavor) 140
1 banana
Total 250

As you can see I eat low calorie breakfasts...I like to save the majority of my calories for dinner so I can have a bigger meal. It works for me that way. But with these breakfasts you could add a cup of milk or have an extra waffle (70 calories each). I also eat bananas with breakfast and do some kind of berries/orange/peach or whatever looked good that week with lunch.

1 piece of fat free cheese (25 cal)
1 cup orange juice (110 cal)
1 cup coffee w/splenda and half&half (40 cal)

I'm not a big sweet-eater, especially in the morning; I go for savory tastes. Here is my 305 calorie "Power Breakfast Scramble."


Various diced veggies--my mix of onion, tomato, & mushroom is about 50 cals

1/2 pat real butter to grill the veggies

2 slices of lean ham

2 lg whole eggs

1 Babybel cheese round sliced

I grill my diced veggies in the butter, dice my ham and add that, scramble my eggs in a bowl with a tad bit of cold water and mix that in, and right at the end, I melt in the Babybel cheese. It comes to approx 305 cals (based on the brands I buy), so you could even add a slice of toast!

Hi Pro Pancakes

1/2 cup oatmeal (process in blender until mostly flour, you'll want a few flakes for "nuttiness")
1/2 hot water

Soak oats in hot water for 5 minutes or so

1 scoop protein powder (I used GNC Lean 25 shake chocolate flavor)
1/4 cup egg whites
1/4 tsp baking powder

Mix into oat mixture and allow to sit while you heat a skillet with a spritz of cooking spray in it. Pour batter into pan to make up to 4 pancakes.

This is approx 300 calories (depends upon your protein powder) before toppings or any additions.

Very good served with fresh fruit and/or peanut butter. They are VERY filling and satisfy that carby breakfast craving I get once in a while but also super high in protein (24 grams protein before toppings as I made them)

Piece of fruit or some berries - approx 80 cal
Some milk and stevia in my coffee - 20 cal

1. Omelettes (scrambled eggs) - I usually use 4-5 large eggs and eat half for breakfast and half for lunch. I toss in diced veggies (red peppers and spring onions are a favourite), sometimes a small chicken or turkey breast or some lean ham. A serving is usually around 250 calories.

2. Cottage cheese with lean ham, diced red peppers or diced radishes, herbs and spices - around 250-300 calories.

3. Skyr with nuts - skyr is an Icelandic dairy product high in protein and very low in fat. Ideally use the non-flavoured version and add your own low-calorie flavouring and sweetening. Careful with the nuts, as they are high in calories (but oh so delicious).

4. Chicken or turkey sausage/pan-fried chicken or turkey breast with a slice of whole grain bread.

5. If you're in a hurry, a home-made protein bar (protein powder, peanut butter, oatmeal, cocoa powder and your sweetener of choice, all mixed together, shaped into bars and refrigerated). The recipe that I use has about 250 calories per bar.

I've been having this the past few mornings and it has completely taken care of my hunger throughout the day.

1 cup of Dannon Plain Nonfat (90 calories) - kinda bleagh by itself
1 cup of frozen fruit (70 calories) - I use blueberries because they are pretty sweet
1 cup of Kashi GoLean (140 calories) - Gives it a great crunch

= 316 calories

I layer it in a bowl and put it in the refrigerator. Delicious! Keeps me full from 6:30-10:30 and I haven't really had the hunger pains that I have had in the past.

6oz greek vanilla yogurt (Make sure you get the kind without a lot of sugar)
1/2 sliced banana
1/2c chopped pineapple
1oz chopped walnuts

Mix it all together in a bowl and put a tiny drizzle (Like about 1tsp) of honey over the top.
Altogether, it's about 340 calories, and it is soooo good. :D

GLORIOUS PURPLE PORRIDGE!

This is divine, very healthy, amazingly filling and only 160cal!

Cooking apple
Blueberries
Cinnamon
Honey
Porridge oats

(calorie count includes three teaspoons of sugar also that i add before I eat it)

First stew the fruit.

I mix one medium sized cooking apple to about 200g of blueberries but any fruit can be used. I add just about half a cup of water to the sliced, peeled cooking apple and simmer in a saucepan until the apple starts to break up. (About 10 minutes) Then add three desertspoons of honey (optional) and three teaspoons of cinnamon. Stir in. Then add the blueberries (frozen is fine) and simmer for another 5 minutes.

This makes enough for about four breakfast bowls. I keep it in the fridge.

For the porridge I add a half a cup of porridge oats to one cup of water. I simmer this in a saucepan until it thickens. I then add 6 desertspoons of the stewed fruit and mix. After 1 minute I take it off the heat and add it to a bowl to eat. I usually add three teaspoons of sugar to it then but that's optional of course.

I ate this first because it would be low calorie and healthy. I kept eating it because it was delicious! And filling! And very fast! Enjoy...

My favorite breakfast:

2 eggs, whites only
1 egg with yolk for flavor
1 small tomato chopped up
2 jimmy dean fully cooked turkey sausage links chopped up
2 fresh basil leaves
salt/pepper to taste
1oz low-fat cheddar
1 100cal english muffin (Thomas' "Triple Health")

I saute the tomatoes and sausage, add the basil for a few seconds, then the eggs for a scramble. Top with the s/p and cheddar and serve over the english muffin. Comes out to 340 calories according to FitDay! I usually have some fresh fruit with it as well.

I make this for my fiance and I, and he raves over it - he has NO clue its healthy! He says to me "I thought you were on a diet."

Oh man. There are some great breakfast ideas here!

The breakfast I'm stuck on lately is simple. I had never eaten an egg over easy until 2 months ago and now I can't get enough of them.

2 medium eggs over easy - 140
1/3 tbsp butter - 33
1 1/2 slices multigrain bread - 160
1 tbsp light whipped cream cheese - 30
1/2 tbsp homemade peach preserves - 25
Total: 388 calories

Half the bread gets cream cheese and preserves. The other half I use to sop up the runny, yummy yolks. It makes me stupidly happy.

^ You should try Stevia instead of Splenda. Taste way better and one little drop flavors the whole thing (liquid form, highly concentrated) and stevia actually is good for many things, including your teeth.

I need my protein and fat in a morning to function so this is my new breakfast:

Croque Madame with Spinach

1 large handful spinach (7)
2 slices wafer thin chicken (36)
40g cheddar cheese finely grated (161)
1 tsp mustard (11)
1 medium poached egg (74)
1 slice seeded bread toasted (127)

Total: 416 calories
24g fat, 21g carb, 29g protein

Thoroughly wash spinach, then with the water still stuck to the leaves wilt in a pan over a low heat.
Spread mustard on toast, then place spinach on top, then layer with the chicken and cheese with the top layer being cheese.
Grill until top is golden and bubbling then top with poached egg and enjoy :D.

Oh and tip for poaching eggs: You need REALLY fresh eggs.. most supermarket eggs aren't that fresh.. I get them from my own chickens but failing that, drop them in water, if they stand up at all and don't lie completely flat on the bottom they're okay to eat but they won't poach well.
Don't bother with vinegar or anything like that- you don't need that.
Bring a deep pan of water to a rolling boil, swirl fast with a stirrer then crack the egg right into the centre of the swirl. Lower the heat so it's a gentler boil then set a timer and cook for 3 minutes (for a medium to large egg) then remove immediately. This will get you a perfectly soft yolk poached egg.

I use 2 slices of whole grain bread, 50kcal per slice bread.
Beat 1 egg + 1 egg white (makes enough for two mornings)
Add cinnamon for taste if you like it
Heat pan and spray lightly with one kcal spray (have it hot but not hottest)
dip the bread in the egg mix so that both sides are coated.
Fry one side, not moving the bread around, flip and do the other.
Add some honey for taste.

It also tastes great with banana or strawberries. You can make savoury toppings too. It's filling and tasty and really fast to make.

1/3 cup water
pinch salt
1/4 cup oats [75 cal]
1/4 oz raisins and candied ginger [30 cal]
1/8 c skim milk [15 cal]
1/8 c applesauce [12 cal]


In a small pan, bring 1/3 cup water to a boil, then add the oatmeal, raisins, salt and candied ginger. Stir constantly, or the oatmeal will stick to the bottom of the pan.

Serve the oatmeal with the milk and applesauce poured over it. 132 calories and all of it tasty.

This is my daily fix... I change it up on the weekends but M-F:
1 large egg= 70
1 whole wheat orowheat english muffin= 150
1 slice of reduced fat provolone cheese= 50

Total 270 calories, including a healthy shake of black pepper, my condiment of choice.

I use a microwave egg poacher for this. It works fantastically, and I get my breakfast sandwich fix. I love Whataburger (out here in Texas, not sure if it goes beyond here) Breakfast on a Bun (BOB) with sausage egg and cheese on a little white bun. This is my alternative and is pretty tasty!

This is an easy way to enjoy steel cut oats for breakfast. It's very filling and if you split it into three servings (it's good reheated if you are careful not to microwave it too long), it's about 315 calories per serving.

1 1/4 cup steel cut oats (750 calories - remember you are making 3 servings)
1 1/2 cups water (0 calores)
1 banana (~100 calories depending on size/weight)
1 tablespoon craisins (about 1/4 cup is 100 calories - I used the 100 calorie packs from Ocean Spray)


1. The night before, throw the water, craisins and then the steel cut oats into your blender. Let them sit overnight.

2. In the morning, start your blender. While the water and oats are blending, chop the banana and then add it to the blender, too.

3. Continue blending until the oatmeal is a nice, smooth texture.

4. Eat! I love to top this oatmeal with a sprinkle of cinnamon. This recipe for oatmeal makes for a very filling breakfast. And you can substitute any type of fruit you want!

Lately, I've been having two soft-boiled eggs, each set on top half of an English muffin, each side spread w/half a wedge of Light Laughing Cow cheese. Delicious goodness.

I was inspired by a post on Beth's Journey (a personal weight loss blog I read) and added the Laughing Cow as it is a great stand by for me. Anyway, 2 eggs + English muffin + Light Laughing Cow cheese = 400 calories. (Sometimes I'll throw some tomato on the plate...)

Spray Pam in a wide/short mug, whisk (with a fork) 3 egg whites (17calories each) and pepper/salt. Cover with surran wrap but leave a small vent and microwave for 1 minute. Stab with fork a couple times, flip the egg in the mug and microwave for another 1 minute. Add 1/8cup shredded cheese (55calories) and microwave for another 30seconds. Take out and place on bottom half of a small steak bun toasted (100 calories). Eat with a fork and knife.= 206 calories
I love this! Sometimes I put more like 1/4 cup cheese on it (you could probably add veggies/tomatoes, etc. too)

Avocado and Egg Pizza 267 calories/13g fiber/7 net carbs

1 Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortilla
1 slice of 2% America Cheese
1/2 small Avocado smashed
1 large egg

Break Cheese over tortilla and either microwave to melt the cheese or stick it under the broiler for a min. Spread mashed avocado on tortilla then top with an egg cooked how ever you desire. I prefer the egg over medium or poached. Also it taste just as good minus the cheese or using a corn tortilla.

Lately I've been having a lot of smoothies for breakfast. They're pretty filling although I tend to have a small snack around 10.

I just throw

1 banana
a cup of raspberries, strawberries, kiwi, ... (about 100 grams)
some soy yoghurt

It's about 200 calories for one large glass.

My favorites:

1:
Arnold flax and fiber sandwich thin, toasted (100 calories)
Laughing cow light cream cheese triangle (45 calories)
V8 fusion light (50 calories)
Coffee with sugar free torani syrup and 1/4 cup 1% milk (about 30 calories)

2:
Nonfat vanilla greek yoghurt (100 calories) with
Honey bitz sprinkles (60 calories)
Banana (110 calories or so, depending on size) with
PB2 peanut butter powder (mixed with water) (45 calories)
Coffee with sugar free torani syrup and 1/4 cup 1% milk (about 30 calories)

3:
Vitamuffin (100 calories)
Peach or pear snack cup (50 calories)
Coffee with sugar free torani syrup and 1/4 cup 1% milk (about 30 calories)

Sometimes I sub the coffee for 1 c. of skim milk (80 calories) and 1 c. of sugar free chai concentrate, and I sometimes have 1/4 c. of uncooked oats topped with a sliced banana and drizzled with honey. It sounds weird, but I love oats and can't stand oatmeal. I hate mushy food!

Since I'm on such a low calorie plan, 400 calories sounds like a feast! One of my common breakfasts is:

1/2 Container Yoplait Light Fat Free Yogurt (Your favorite flavor) 45 cals
1/4 Cup Honey Nut Cheerios 28 cals
3 Strawberries sliced 16 cals

Mix it together and enjoy for a total of 89 calories.

If you like it a little sweeter, a packet of Splenda makes it really yummy.
