Breakfast ideas

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Today I realized I hadn't eaten breakfast and had about 1 minute to leave. So I went for my basket of bars that I bought when I was home at Christmas.

I'm down to 2 more Luna bars (the breakfast of running late champions). And so, I need some ideas of things I can make ahead of time and take with me. Things like breakfast bars and cookies are good. Things like eggs and oats are much harder when I'm running late like that.

Any ideas, friends?

    Here are easy ideas that will get you started, hope this helps...

1. Quaker Instant Hot Oatmeal Cereal, topped with brown sugar and cinnamon, you can also try some almonds, other toppings..
2. Scrambled eggs on whole wheat toast
3. Special K Cereal with non fat milk
4. Cheerios, can be topped with fruit and nuts
5. Multi-grain or plain unsalted rice cakes with low fat melted cheddar cheese and or cream cheese and or peanut butter..
6. Special K Cereal Bars with fresh fruit
7. Fruit Smoothie, add a handful of almonds to eat along with sipping your smoothie
8. Measure 1/4 cup of Rogers 5 grain granola light raspberry almond cereal in a cereal bowl and mix 1/2 cup of any fruit flavored yogurt in to the granola cereal, mix until well blended, this is my favorite and it is so tasty...
9. Multi-grain, whole wheat pita bread or whole wheat toast topped with reduced sugar low fat jam or peanut butter or low fat granola bars topped with peanut butter..
10. Hard Boiled egg, fruit and a calorie reduced/low sodium toast with your favorite filling...

For me I use a variety of foods so I don't get bored...There are plenty of foods out there...I encourage you to try something just might find out that breakfast is your favorite meal of the day!

    Mamasuds - yes. I've tried a couple of breakfast bar/muffin type recipes. They've been super easy.

The other thing I've wanted to try and haven't yet is baked egg cups - put eggs & veggies in the muffin tin and bake them. Then when it's breakfast time, pop them in the microwave and eat them.

Did you try your breakfast pockets at all? They sound like a fun idea. Maybe they could be made with wonton wrappers, so that the outside isn't very many calories?

    A piece of fruit is always a good start! Hmm, but you need your protein. Have you found any answers to your dilemna yet? I'm a big fan of cold pizza = )
How about making your own breakfast pockets with low-fat meats and cheeses. That with a piece of fruit and a bottle of tea would be perfect. What do you think? If you have some recipes you want to try, I would be willing to help you. We can see how if passes the "family test".

    I'm with Becky. SP has some great healthy muffin recipes that you can make and freer ahead. Then have some milk and fruit later in the morning.

    Those both sound good! But, if I'm running late, it has to be things I can just grab. I've found a couple of recipes for muffins I'd like to try - they should be something I can just toss in the freezer and grab one when I need a 'to go' breakfast.

    I wish I could help. I've had the same thing for breakfast nearly every day for the last 7-8 years (Oatmeal Squares and milk). Breakfast tacos are good if you have time to make them ahead of time. Just wrap them in foil. :)
