Hi! new member here...

I have been doing to first two weeks of SB and am very happy with the program - but have one question. I am so tired of eggs for breakfast! I am in grad school and have class *every* morning at 8 AM (with a 45 min+ commute) and cooking eggs and bacon every morning just isn't cutting it anymore.

Any suggestions?

PS. I am thrilled to have found this board - and am even more happy to know that I am not the only person to eat way more nuts than the books recommends. :p

Welcome, matiabrilliantini! I tend to eat whatever I want for breakfast as long as it's OP. I eat last night's leftovers if they appeal to me, or cottage cheese, or a FF yogurt blended with berries, splenda, and vanilla once I was in Phase 2. LF cheese and lunch meat rollups work too. Include the V8 juice. You don't have to stick with typical breakfast foods; just stick with the plan. Hope this helps.

Welcome, Maria.
Pennywise has said it all. Forget typical breakfast stuff and eat anything. Chili is one of my favourite breakfasts or a bowl of bean soup!

Sometimes I just grab a yogurt, a couple of slices of low-fat cheese and a handful of nuts when I can't face cooking but mostly I have eggs and cheese or low fat, low carb sausages with mushrooms or tomatoes. A lot of people on this forum make up quiche cups for a quick and easy breakfast. Just make sure you are having a protein based breakfast. Once you are on phase two and can have fruit I guess you could make a breakfast smoothie with fruit and low-fat milk and/or yogurt. You could add raw egg or egg substitute to get some extra protein.

It was so much easier when we could have leftover pizza, wasn't it?
Lettuce wrap "sandwiches" might work.... tuna filling? c. cheese with herbs?

Thanks for all the feedback - I am just going to try to think outside the breakfast box in the morning.
