Default What do you eat for breakfast ?

For breakfast I use to eat sausage egg biscuits or croissants. Then I decided
to try special K. Well that seems to be working I don't put any sugar on it occasionaly I'll add fruit.

Well one day I was watching Dr oz maybe it was the segment about just lose 10
(I have one of those just 10 bracelets) and one of his statements was don't eat anything with sugar in the first 5 ingredients and to stay away from breakfast cereal. I thought special K was a good breakfast food and then I looked at the box. Sugar was the 3 or forth ingredient.

Oh woe is me.

So, what do you eat for breakfast?

Oatmeal made with a little less water and 1/4 cup canned pumpkin. Then I sprinkle pumpkin pie spice on it, 1 tsp maple syrup & a tsp butter. So tasty and fills me up for the whole morning!

I eat an activia light with half a banana. It tastes like banana pudding. No kidding. I never looked at the sugar in it though, honestly. Its low cal and tastes good so in my mouth it goes.

It's 1/2 cup oatmeal cooked with 1/4 cup raisans, 2 tsp brown sugar, and a pinch of salt! It's only 300 calories, give you the warm fuzzies..and taste great!

Hmmm...gotta try the pumpkin recipe...thanks seagirl!

Yep, before I was counting calories or actually organized about any of this effort, I ate breakfast cereal. I figured if it was "healthy cereal" and not Cinnamon Toast Crunch or something, it was free game. Eating three bowls of it every morning wasn't helping me lose anything, haha. Once I figured out that I actually needed to pay attention to serving sizes (surprise surprise!), I found that an appropriate serving size of breakfast cereal isn't nearly satisfying or filling enough. A handful of sugary flakes is not going to last me for several hours.

I don't eat breakfast, but I do love breakfast foods. (I have never been able to force myself to eat in the morning. Anything before noon makes me feel sluggish and gross for the rest of the day). I stole seagirl's pumpkin oatmeal idea a few months ago, haha. I do 3/4 cup old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup pure pumpkin, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and a Splenda packet or two. Deeelicious for about 300 cal. I also do 3/4 cup oats with 1/2 Light n' Fit yogurt. It makes it creamy and sweet and fruity, again for about 300 cal.

Saute any veggies you have lying around and maybe some leftover meat or lunch meat slices (I usually use tomato, onion, and turkey slices), then scramble them with some egg whites (I use Egg Beaters for convenience). Top the scrambled eggs and veggies over a couple slices of 35-cal bread. I'll even drizzle it with sugarfree maple syrup. So much protein, and feels like country-cookin comfort food.

If I have oatmeal I find I'm hungry thinking about food all morning if I have eggs (fresh from a local farm) then I'm full and hardly think about eating until lunch.

i try to eat all my breads, if any, etc. in the mornings. preferably a big meal to start the day, and then taper off with lighter foods.
just now, for breakfast:

1/4c "southwestern" egg beaters, scrambled and sandwhiched with 2 slices of sesame ezekiel toast.
3tbsp horizon organic cottage cheese
a handful of raw, whole almonds
a 30cal can of v8
2 bottles of water.

i don't really get bored with it. it's just my every day kind of thing and only takes a minute. occasionally will add in a banana or apple, omit the v8, or swap out the cottage cheese for some greek yogurt.

It is difficult for me to find something I'm willing to eat in the morning, even if I'm hungry.

Lately though I've been eating chia seeds soaked in almond milk. I'll add whatever I feel like to it, which has been walnuts, raisins and cinnamon lately. I can eat it cold or warm. I can also throw pumpkin puree or butternut squash puree in it.

Another vote from the oatmeal fan club over here...not the instant kind either, real oats without all of the added sugar. I use 1/2 oats, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 5-10 raw almonds (can you tell I like almonds, lol), and 1/2-1 banana cut up. I usually throw a little cinnamon in there too. It ends up being around 300 calories and keeps me filled up until lunch.

I love love love cereal, but I'm always hungry a little while later and it makes me want to just eat more. Seriously, I could eat cereal all day. Actually, I used to do just that when I was a kid/teen. My family still jokes about it! That probably has something to do with why I was at my highest weight when I lived at home.

Eggs also keep me filled up for a long time, but I always pack my breakfast/lunch and they're just not as easy to transport. However, when I'm at home though, I love to make egg scrambles with black beans, salsa, jalapenos, and a little avocado if I'm lucky.

Like mkendrick, I quit using corporate mass market cereal because I'd eat 3 bowls of it! Plus eat it after dinner as a "healthy" snack. (Yeah, right.) It's just an excuse for empty calories and glucose spikes.

Did you read Born to Run? I just got a 2lb bag of chia seeds in the mail that may have been a direct result of reading that book, lol!

I do eat cereal nearly everyday, but I closely measure portion sizes, and I choose higher protein cereals - I usually mix 1 serving of Special K Protein Plus with 1 small ("calorie watchers") serving of Kashi Go Lean (total 210 cals). I then add 1 cup unsweetened chocolate Almond Breeze with a bit of Splenda and some cinnamon. Looking at my diet, this is the closest I come to Frankenfood, but it keeps me full and is quick to prepare...oh yeah, and I like it

Cals: 255
Fat: 7g
Carb: 39g
Fiber: 14g
Sugar: 7g
Protein: 22g

Sometimes I make a mix of plain oatmeal with cinnamon, splenda, frozen sour cherries, and Almond Breeze (usually weekends)...sprinkled with some chia seeds on top -

Cals: 225
Fat: 7g
Carb: 36g
Fiber: 8g
Sugar: 9g
Protein: 7g

If eggs sound good (which is rare for me), I make an omelet with 2 eggs, 1 egg white, and a couple tablespoons each of sharp cheddar, lean ham, green pepper, and onion.

Cals: 235
Fat: 15g
Carb: 3g
Fiber: 0g
Sugar: 2g
Protein: 23g

This is obviously the lowest in sugars, but it's just not appealing most days -
