Quick Quaker oats with raisins and a little Splenda. 273 calories, lots of taste and texture, sweet, and good cholesterol and sodium. Takes less than three minutes to make. I put the raisins, water and Splenda in a small pot the night before and the raising swell up by the time I cook.
I have been eating the same now for eight months daily and really look forward to breakfast!

I usually have 3 to 5 cups of strong, dark roast coffee (black) along with a piece of cake - often topped with lemon or strawberry curd.

The cake is either spice cake, chocolate cake, carrot cake, or pumpkin pie - using lentils and chickpeas or red kidney beans for the "flour" and sweetened with strawberries, or honeydew, or oranges, or bananas (or some combination of those). It is around 300-350 calories (depending on if I choose to add avocado or almonds for some extra fats), with 22-25g of protein, 14-16g of fibre, and at least 18% of all vitamins and minerals (most of them closer to 50%). It includes a full serving of fruit (2 for the pumpkin pie or carrot cake), along with another full serving of pulses (which some count as a vegetable).

There is no reason at all not to have cake for breakfast!

Items I typically have:

Coffee and 2 egg omelet with a small amount of cheese, fresh Broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and onions. Sometimes I will have a Quorn (vegetarian) sausage on the side.

Coffee-Oatmeal with a splash of soy or almond milk, a small pat of butter, a pinch of salt, blueberries, walnuts, and stevia

Coffee-Oatmeal with just a pat of butter and a pinch of salt.

Coffee-2 eggs over medium with a slice of whole grain toast and half a banana or Apple.

Coffee- eggs in a bed. I spray a muffin pan and tear whole grain bread to fit at the bottom of each cup. On top of that I add cheese, crack one egg over that, add a drop of cream, salt, pepper, thyme, tarragon, and parsley. Cook in the oven at 350* until cooked through. I eat two of those as which still accounts for less than a full serving of cheese or bread, but feels satisfying.


Sometimes I will have a whole wheat English muffin with a poached egg and some cheese with a half serving of fruit.

Those are the most common ones in our home. The are some others, but these we use the most!

Still working and am fortunate to ride a commuter train that allows food. So breakfast is packed -- 1 cup of coffee, 2 hard-boiled egg whites (hate the yolks), 1 sandwich made with crispbread and cream cheese. If I'm still hungry, I'll have my yogurt snack with seeds.

I have a poached egg and whole grain toast every day. One thing I didn't give up is "real" butter. I bought whipped butter that has 1/2 the calories and I put a small amount on my toast each morning.

What I normally eat is a bowl of rolled oats with organic bananas and either blueberries or whole organic peanut butter, depending on what I want to eat on a given morning. I've been experimenting lately with cooking the oats, as I've read that that's better for one's digestion.

I find this breakfast is very easy to automate and is quite healthy as well.

Lately I've been having cottage cheese and peaches. When the weather gets warmer I like a Nutribullet smoothie. A whole day of freggies in a glass! And of course, Irish oats with blueberries is wonderful in the winter.

A mediweightloss bar, or a hard boiled egg and 3 pieces of turkey bacon (I buy the Hormel already cooked and then nuke it for 1 minute) extra crispy that way. Or a shake made from 4 oz almond milk (the kind that is not from the frig - 40 cal), 1/2 cup frozen organic berries (they have the least sugar content) and a scoop of protein powder (prefer banana flavor).

Usually for breakfast, i'll try to stay away from cereal due to the high amounts of carbs. I'll try to eat protein to keep me full. Either hard boiled eggs or scrambled eggs with 1 slice of toast. I'll vary it and eat string cheese or some type of nuts.

I vary what I have. Today was oat groats, almonds and craisins with cinnamon. Regular rolled oats don't stay with me so I don't eat them but the oat groats do. I read that whole grains should be soaked to avoid gastric upset so I brought them to a boil for 2 minutes, let soak in overnight in fridge then cooked for 20 minutes this morning. Really good, the craisins swelled and added sweetness. The almonds added protein.

The journey is as important as the goal.

Ive been trying to join the eat the same thing every day, so there basically isn't a thought process before this early morning feeding. Right now I am following a juice only plan and do have the same thing in the morning and when I transition to chewable foods, I'm going to try the same thing, every morning plan.

I do love a turkey bacon BLT wrapped in a huge lettuce leaf instead of bread or cold oatmeal with fruit that I make and put in fridge the night before.

I am new as well. I'm three days into this and it's work. For breakfast I eat different meals most days. Hot or cold cereals, omelettes with whole eggs, sometimes just egg whites, boiled eggs, left overs, etc.... Usually I eat something and a cup or two of black coffee with a slice of toast. emoticon

I actually eat the same thing every day and I like it.

30 gm. cereal w/ at least 3 types of fruit including 1/2 a bannana w/ a 1/2 glass skim milk.

Lots to eat and only about 240 cals.

Old enough to know better. Young enough to do it again. Crazy enough to try

BTW, Id like to invite you all to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs. to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are allotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with discipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! under this post you will find the link just click on it. Thank you in advance

Hi everyone I am new to this site. I have started calorie counting since I have been on this site for the last few days whichg has been very helpful. For breakfast this is the list of things I normally have :

2 egg whites and one package of instant oatmeal for breakfast one day.
Another day I will have one container of yogurt & a banana
Usually that is what I stick to.

I've been on quite the egg kick. Usually 2 eggs over easy with 2 slices of 35 calorie bread or whole wheat bread. Sometimes I will eat a quick bowl of Weight Watcher cereal or Special K. with Red Berries. I also love a few teaspoons of Grape Nuts cereal sprinkled over yogurt. It gives a nice crunch and keeps me more full with the fiber.

I heard long ago that one should breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper, so breakfast is loaded with fruit (cantaloupe, pineapple), cereal (raisin bran) and skim milk, plus black coffee. I'm not hungry again until lunch.

Green Smoothie that I call Greens in a Glass with Spinach, Kale, celery, cucumber, pineapple, banana, Plain Greek Yogurt, Chia seeds with ginger and cinnamon. I use different fruits whatever is in season or on sale and if I have any left over green produce I will use it to replace the cucumbers.

Week/work days i prefer small simple meals....fruit & yogurt parfait with granola, oatmeal usually with dried fruit or whatever fresh fruit i have, and if I haven't prepared or am rushing i grab a cereal bar and piece of fresh fruit. Weekends I usually prepare a heavier brunch type meal.

I struggle with breakfast a little because I get up very early, but I make sure that a full 1/3 of my daily intake is breakfast, this seems to help cut down on mindless eating during the day. Protein, fruit/vegs, slow carbs

Food. Whatever I feel like eating. Sometimes steak, sometimes pancakes. I lived in South Korea for a few years and when I asked them what they ate for breakfast, they looked at me strangely. I found out they eat the same thing for breakfast that they would eat for lunch or dinner-FOOD. They don't have special foods for each meal. They thought this concept was odd. If you think about it, it IS odd. Food is food, right? Today, I had a hot dog with whole wheat bread and an ear of corn for breakfast. :-)

Weekdays usually Greek yogurt with some fruit, usually some form of eggs on the weekend Lately,

I've been making gluten-free banana pancakes (eggs, mashed banana, and baking powder) -- great with some blueberries and a little maple syrup.

I have never liked eating the same thing days in a row, so I have something different when I can, I frequently have cream of wheat, with a variety of fruits to top, I like my oatmeal mushy so I start it leave it on very low simmer and go do barn chores and put a handful of frozen berries in it when I get back. Yogurt is a favorite, occasionally I have toast with almond butter, when I have corn tortillas I make a breakfast burrito, with what I have on had, maybe some red peppers, onions, sausage and an egg. I like to barely hard boil a couple of eggs for 8 minutes and eat them hot. When I work my night schedule breakfast food goes by the wayside and I eat dinner, had salmon cakes the other morning. I like pizza or a sandwich for breakfast also.

Lately, it's a Protein Shake made with many ingredients: blueberries, cranberries, water, almond milk, chia, hemp, flax, coconut oil, almond butter, avocado, lemon & rind, and more. It's thick. Initially, I thought it tart, but I've grown to LOVE it. Once I suck some in a straw, there is plenty of chew to each draw. This is energizing and satisfying.

I'm an adventurous, variety kind of person and for me I need to have a different food each day. Post Shreddies, Poached egg, Quick Oats, Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich, French Toast, Scrambled Eggs. This basically takes me through my week but once a week I like to try a new recipe I've never had before, the more exotic it sounds the more it appeals to me.

To me HEALTH means Energy. Stamina. Flexibilty. A relatively pain free body. Enjoying healthy food. You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self. You’ll do much better when you focus on making positive changes to improve your health and well-being, rather than on fighting your bad habits.

You don't have to eat breakfast for breakfast. How about a 1/2 a pita bread, spread with a little bit of marinara then top with veggies (like peppers, mushrooms and onions) and a portion of your favorite cheese. Bake it until the cheese melts. Can add some diced chicken to your little mini pizza to if you want some extra protein.

Something simpler: 1/2 cup cottage cheese, fruit and a slice of toast.

1/3 cup dried oatmeal. Add 3 dried prunes or 3 dried apricots or 2 tbs. raisins or dried cherries. Can substitute fresh fruit like 1/2 apple, minced (which I cook in the oats), or slice bananas (added after cooking). Dash cinnamon and just a tiny pinch of salt. Add 2/3 cup of water and cover. Cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes. Serve with 6 broken pecan halves and 1/2 cup skim milk. I have a precooked cold hard boiled egg on the side. If I'm really hungry I will eat the egg before I cook the oats.

This was a standard breakfast at our house while growing up (with exception of the egg) and I never get tired of it. I can mix and match the fruit if I want. I buy the fruit, nuts and oats in the bulk foods so it's cheap and will keep for a long time. I don't add sugar or butter because I like the taste of the fruit and that is sweet enough and the nuts are a healthy fat and add a nice texture. The tiny bit of salt enhances the sweetness of the fruit and the nuttiness of the oats and pecans. Good luck

Breakfast is NOT my favorite meal. I get up at 6:30 AM but am never hungry until close to noon. I've been a breakfast skipper all of my life. Hubby cooks his own breakfast. I just can't face food that early. I've been trying to figure out how to change that but so far not doing well with it. Right now I have nothing except a cup of coffee and a glass of juice until about 8:30 or 9 AM. Then I drink a cup of V-8 juice. I begin to get hungry around 11 and usually start preparing lunch then.
I've tried left overs and tons of different foods for breakfast but just can't go it. My third meal of the day comes just before bed and usually consists of about 200-300 calories. It's usually peanut butter on a slice of bread, cheese and crackers, cottage cheese and fruit, chicken or tuna salad with crackers or in a wrap.

Low carb days (Mon/Wed/Fri) I have 1 egg, 1/4c egg whites with sharp cheddar on top along with 1/4 cup of low fat cottage cheese.

Normal carb days (Tue/Thu/Sat/Sun) I usually have Kashi cereal and Almond milk or on the weekend I splurge with oatmeal/nuts/raisins & Almond milk and a slice of 45cal bread and some orange marmalade on top.
