Omlet tip - you need a pan with a LID. If you don't use a lid, the it's hard to get the top of the eggs cooked all the way through. I usually put the eggs (or egg whites) in and cover and cook on low heat for a minute or two, until it starts looking cooked all the way through, then MICROWAVE OR PREHEAT your ingredients and throw them on top of the eggs. Add a dash of cheese and cover. Let it cook for a minute or two until the cheese is melted. Then take a spatula and flip up one side of the eggs so it is upside down and still open. Lift the pan over to your plate and then put the spatula under the flipped side of the eggs. Roll the omlet out on to your plate turning it as you do so that it lands on the plate in the nice folded omlet shape that we all like so much.
Good luck! They are delicious and not too hard once you get the hang of it! And a great way to get veggies in the morning. My favorite is a pizza omlet with carrots, zuccini and mushrooms and a lot of tomato paste and garlic salt (but I don't watch my sodium) - eating 55g of tomato paste a day can help prevent skin cancer so I try to find inventive ways to get it in, this is my favorite so far. Pre cook the veggies and have them ready to go in a tupperware, then stick them in the microwave until they are hot when you are ready to throw them in.
If you try to cook the veggies inside the omlet you will burn the outside of the eggs before they are hot or done. And usually they shed a lot of water so then you have a soggy omlet too. No good!

Tomorrow I am going to bravely go where I have never gone before: omelet world. I have never made one. I have scrambled eggs, I have fried eggs, I have boiled eggs. Never before have I made an omelet. Or even eaten one for that matter.
Yay me!

Thank you all for sharing. There are some great breakfasts listed. I was just getting so bored with my usual. I do agree w/many of you though that breakfast is the most important of the day. Maybe my problem is... as the day goes...the next meal seems pretty important also emoticon emoticon Wish I could pack you all up and bring you home!!!

I enjoy the quaker on-the-go oatmeal bars. Warm for about 20 secs in the microwave and you're done. They're tasty too.

Do you like oatmeal? If you do there are a lot of recipes for baked oatmeal. Sometimes I make six servings and put them into single serving containers, then all I need to do is heat it up, add a little milk and eat it!

Had whole grain toast with almond butter and a banana. Will do a healthy snack between that and lunch.

I usually go well over 300 calories--but breakfast is usually my biggest meal of the day. I thought I'd share my two cents, though--my latest breakfast obsession has been breakfast tacos, because they're so quick and easy to make. They can even be made ahead of time and popped into the microwave to be ready in about 20 seconds! I'm simple about it, and I try to load my breakfast up with protein because I've noticed I'm bad about eating meats and stuff the rest of the day, so I usually include eggs, hashed potatoes, some turkey bacon (although today I included last night's leftover taco meat!) and some cheese, all wrapped up in a tortilla.

And I usually split a banana with my daughter while I'm cooking it.

Like I said, breakfast is usually my biggest meal of the day, but I put a lot of faith in the adage that it's the most important meal.

Some replies say anywhere from 190 cal to 300 calories for Breakfast. What are some examples and portions of items? I get so bored. Trying to stay away from cereals & toast so the only thing I can think of is veggie loaded omelet. Sometimes I have 1/2 grapefruit and although I love it...it's not very satisfying.
