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

French Toast!

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!

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.

I love to make a cheese and egg sandwich.

Cook egg over hard
slice of deli American cheese
1 Thomas's multigrain lite great start English muffins (100 calories and EIGHT grams of fiber!)

I have this with a Chobani Greek yogurt. All told, it's 388 calories and has 52% of the RDA for calcium.

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 ...


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).

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)

1 La Tortilla Factory High Fiber 12" Tortilla - 100 calories
1/2 cup scrambled egg beaters - 60 calories
2 Tbls Salsa - 15 calories
1/4 cup grated lowfat cheese - 50 calories

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


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


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!
