Default Healthy breakfast ideas

Does anyone have suggestions for healthy (relatively quick or can be prepared in advance) breakfast other than cereal or breakfast/granola bars? I'd prefer something without a lot of sugar.

Any ideas? Thoughts, recipes or whatever are welcome. I normally only have about 10 minutes tops for breakfast in the morning, but I can prepare stuff the night before if the recipes allows.

Have you tried oatmeal w/ skim milk. You can microwave in a couple of minutes (even the old fashioned variety). Also, I sometimes bake little omelettes (loaded with veggies) in muffin pans - refrigerate and heat them up in the morning. They are good at room temperature as well. Another idea is fruit. You can either have it whole or make a smoothie.

How about a breakfast enchilada! Place scrambled eggs and a little shredded cheese on a corn tortilla and roll it up, and drizzle salsa on it. Zap in the microwave to make sure the tortilla gets heated, too. You could probably cook the eggs in advance, then zap to warm.

Breakfast doesn't have to be traditional, either. You could eat a sandwich, a diet pizza, leftovers, etc.

There is a recipe in the Eating For Life cookbook - I don't have it handy at the mo' but it is for canadian bacon, with sugar free apricot preserves spread on top and baked until warm. It sounds delicious!

Default Breakfast

Here are a few things I do:

1. Hard-boiled eggs, sometimes with salt, sometimes with some salsa. These are easy to make ahead.

2. Low-fat plain yogurt, sweetened with Equal or whatever you prefer, mixed with granola cereal.

3. I've been doing this the most lately. When I'm really on the run I often just pick up a Nutri-Grain bar, but that doesn't really hold me until lunch a lot of the time. So what I've started doing is supplementing it with a small can of V-8 (140 for the bar + 35 for the V8). That holds me very well.

One of my out the door favorites is a homemade "Egg McMuffin". I take a light english muffin (I use Village Hearth Brand, but I don't know if their regional or not), 1/4 cup Egg Beaters (cheese & chive flavor or Garden Vegetable flavor) and a slice of fat free cheese. I toast the muffin. Pour the Egg beaters in the bottom a coffee mug that's been sprayed with Pam and cooked on high in the microwave for 1-1/2 minutes. I dump the cooked egg beaters on the muffin, top with the cheese and nuke an additional 20 seconds to melt the cheese. I'm not exactly sure how many calories, but it's only 3 WW points. I add a cup of calcium fortified OJ and am out the door.
