    Good for you, LINDA! Good to stay alert for new breakfast ideas; I need to do that, too - I appreciate your reminder. Y'know, I like JANRTEACH's idea...mostly because I've noticed I really need protein more than anything first thing in the morning. I like those little Gorton's frozen grilled salmon filets (actually, more like little "blocks" of frozen salmon :). There's a plain grilled and a lemon grilled, and I alternate them, adding some skim milk to my coffee, too.

I just foil-wrap a little block, place it on the pan in my toaster oven, and let it bake at 400 for about 23 minutes. Sometimes, I'll even thin-slice some sweet onion over top. For some reason, that little breakfast keeps me going 'til lunch, and it's been really satisfying in the colder months.

Other times, I've had Greek yogurt instead. That's another good, high-protein source.

Enjoy your breakfast! emoticon

    The occassional boiled egg with a piece of toast and applesauce is one of my faves. When I boil eggs for a dish I am making, I boil a couple of extra ones to have handy.

    Healthy breakfasts are an area I struggle in because I'm always running out the door. emoticon though. It just requires a little pre planning.

    I sometimes just grab a protien bar because mornings are so busy.

    Last challenge one week was look for spark breakfast recipes. I found a couple with oatmeal I really lke. Browse those. Variety is nice. That said, I am having my "go to":
Kashi go lean and Greek yogurt mixed together. Lots of protein!

    A nutter butter with a little honey on sprouted grain organic bread. Cereal: Kashi Go Lean Crunch is an awesome, tasty cereal that packs a good nutritional punch. Banana, blueberries and strawberries for toppers. Soy beverage or skim milk to pour on it. Egg whites (or whole eggs - a great source of protein and complete nutrient source) with a sprinkle of garlic powder and Asiago cheese to perk them up. I poach them in the microwave -takes less than two minutes..
Good luck with it! You can do it!!

    I like cereal, but peanut butter on good wheat toast is also super yummy.

    Good for you! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Here are some other options you might consider.

Oatmeal: it’s packed with fiber and keeps you feeling fuller longer. It's also a “slow-release” carbohydrate so it won't spike blood sugar as high as eating refined carbohydrates (think: white toast). In turn, insulin levels won’t spike as high. Insulin plays a role in signaling your body to store fat, having lower blood sugar levels may help you burn fat.

Bran cereal: is also a good option for the same reasons.

Peanut butter: on "whole wheat" toast, mini bagels or English muffins.

Eggs: a perfect protein source.
