Default Eating Eggs for Breakfast!

I saw this article today and had to share: http://www.socialworkout.com/2010/04...-buffets-lunch

I might have to switch to eggs!

I can only offer anecdotal evidence, but on the mornings I eat an egg with a tortilla, I'm full until lunch time. On the mornings I eat a bowl of cereal (99% carbs), I'm scrounging for something to eat a few hours later.

Only two days?

I mean I can bring months of my food journal and I can tell you days I had one egg with breakfast in the morning I was fuller than the days I ate something else that wasn't high protein.

I eat anywhere from 5-7 eggs a week. In our household we go through at least a dozen eggs a week!

I think eggs are awesome for breakfast, and we all know that the ideal meal has some protein and some carbs, but this doesn't seem like a very reliable study--it's just too short-term . . .

That being said, I love scrambled eggs for breakfast on days I have time to cook (usually my breakfast is homemade granola--lots of protein, healthy carbs, and fiber). Boiled eggs make a great lunchbox addition too! I find the lunch to dinner wait is usually harder than the breakfast to lunch wait.

I just had two hard-boiled eggs wrapped in two slices of cheese for breakfast. 260 calories, tons of protein, and I will be full until lunch

I make a scrambled egg white, spinach, tomato, onion, and a tbsp of salsa wrap on a low carb tortilla for breakfasts when I have time. The whole thing is less than 250 cal, even with a fat free slice of cheese. It's really yummy and very filling. It definitely holds me to lunch. I wish I had more time in the morning to make it more often, but I already get up at 4:30, I'm not willing to get up any earlier, haha.

I LOVE eggs! I usually buy 2 dozen at a time and boil up one dozen right away to have around. Hard boiled eggs are the best thing to have around when I just don't know what to do with those extra 100 calories I sometimes have at meals. Or if I have to eat on the run, throw a couple hard boiled eggs in a bag make a sandwich and I'm set.

Eggs are the best! And definitely one of my secret (or not so secret) weapons in my weight loss.

Easiest way ever to have eggs for breakfast: Break two eggs into a microwave-safe mug. Add a little salt and pepper. Use a fork to scramble them up. Microwave on high for one minute.

Voila, instant hot scrambled eggs. You can also do these the night before and put them in a plastic container to take to work and reheat if you are pressed for time in the morning.

This morning I had 3 microwaved scrambled eggs, plus a chocolate milk made from 12 oz nonfat milk, 1 oz cocoa, 2 packets Splenda blended up. That was my post-workout breakfast; before workout I had 4 oz nonfat yogurt, 4 oz nonfat cottage cheese, and 4 oz blueberries mixed up with some ground ginger. Fish oil supplement on the side. So this morning I have already had over 50 grams of protein! And I will definitely be full until lunchtime.

I LOVE eggs, I eat them lots of mornings. I do egg beaters in a little microwave bowl and microwave for 1 minute to make an egg patty. Heat up some turkey bacon and/or cheese and put on an english muffin, toast or whatever and I have a quick egg sandwich.

I also love poached eggs and hard boiled eggs. I really have a new love for eggs. I never used to eat them very often - but now I love eating them. Also, a dozen eggs is pretty cheap!

Hmmmm....Do microwaved scrambled eggs TASTE well? I don't ever wake up in time for breakfast (especially when I go to work at 6am), but I really should quit eating such sugary breakfasts..

They taste just like regular scrambled eggs, and I personally find their texture to be fine--though it's probably not precisely like eggs done on the stovetop. I recommend experimenting and seeing whether you like them, yourself. It can't hurt to try
