I found my new favorite breakfast a few days ago! My husband was having biscuits and sausage gravy, and I had an English muffin and sausage gravy. It was delicious and satisfying (and easy)! There was basically no difference in taste from the using a biscuit, and it was a LOT less calories! English muffin = 110 calories, 1/4 cup of Libby's canned sausage gravy = 80 calories.....makes a total of 190 calories for a perfect breakfast!! I'm not a "sweets" person, so this savory breakfast is perfect for me.

Oatmeal if I eat at work, but I normally make a meal replacement shake at home and drink that on my way to work.

Something really easy is an omelette made in a ziploc steam bag.
You can use 2 eggs or the equivalent eggbeaters then add what ever you want, cheese, meat ect then microwave for about 2 1/2 minutes and you have an omelette. You can even put the ingredients together the night before then pull it from the fridge in the morning, throw in the microwave and it's done. it would make a good breakfast burrito also for a more on the go breakfast.
I saw this on the rachel ray show and have used it a few times since then.

Usually scrambled eggs. Sometimes I will boil a lot of eggs at a time so they are already ready to eat. Sometimes I'll add ham or peppers or whatever is quick.

I hard boil eggs on the weekend so that they're available for easy breakfasts during the week.

I use Fiberrich wafers and cream cheese (or a slice of other cheese) to make a quick sandwich to go.

I'm a diabetic, so low carb/high protein breakfast works best for my blood sugar and weight control.

If I'm still hungry, then yogurt with 100 calories of trail mix added in.

I love Overnight, No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal (www.theyummylife.com/Refrigerator_Oatmeal)

My favorite flavor is Mango Almond.

On the same side there are also recipes for Overnight Oatmeal Smoothies. I've tried the strawberry banana one and it's absolutely delicious and surprisingly filling.

A bowl of oatmeal (take 2 min in the microwave) with fresh fruit, yogurt and ... if I'm in the mood, 1/2 to 1 tbsp peanut butter. Creamy, delicious, filling and about 300 calories depending on the choices.

I try to set aside some low cal left-overs that I can pop in the microwave while I'm showering. Classy, i know.

My life saver when I don't have a good left-over option, is Spiru-Tena Protein Powder. One scoop (99 cals) in a glass of OJ or nonfat milk keeps me going until lunch.

I am horrible about eating breakfast so I try to keep Fage Greek yogurt around because it's quick and filling. I also like a slice of whole wheat bread and a slice of cheddar cheese.

Today I had a whole wheat tortilla with refried beans, pepper jack cheese and hot sauce, plus a coffee with milk, and an apple.

Most of the time I have a hard boiled egg, a piece of fruit and coffee. Sometimes I have peanut butter and crackers or peanut butter on an apple.

The other thing I like to do is to mix plain yogurt, frozen fruit and a little vanilla in the food processor, and then pour it into containers and freeze it. (I like banana and blackberry) You can save yogurt cups and pour it in those and then you don't need to bring them home. If I take a frozen container out right before I leave home, it is the texture of ice cream when I get to work. YUM

It depends upon how much time I have on a given morning. Favorites include:

Irish oatmeal with either added pumpkin puree (spiced like pie) or spiced with cinnamon with added crisp, raw apples and chopped walnuts (it only takes around 5 min to cook the oats in the microwave)

Quickly scrambled egg with baby spinach and a slice of low fat cheese, on toast

Smoothie of Greek yogurt, 2 basic types: 1) added berries, banana, baby spinach, and protein powder (optional) or 2) added banana, almond butter, cocoa powder, and baby spinach, sweetened with stevia

I usually have a greek yogurt (flavored in the winter, plain with fresh berries in the summer) as soon as I get to work, coffee all morning, then a hard boiled egg or piece of fruit once I get hungry again to hold me over til lunch.

I also love a sandwich for bfast sometimes, which is easy to put together the night before and grab on your way out or while getting ready for the day. Peanutbutter and banana, turkey and veggies, etc... :)

my breakfasts for the working week are different each day, I do yogurt and some kind of breakfast bar. I have been known to eat raw veggies for breakfast with a slice of colby and raw almonds. There have been mornings when I eat cottage cheese and fruit with a slice of turkey. I have also found a cinnamon bread that is only 90 calories a slice so I will eat a slice of that with oatmeal and a slice or two of bacon. I am always in a hurry in the morning since I work two jobs that start at 7am.

On the weekends it is a little layed back, cold cereal and a glass of milk. Granola bar and fruit on Sunday on the way to church.

I like overnight oatmeal. You just mix 1/3 cup each of regular dry oatmeal, yogurt and milk with your flavoring of choice and let it sit overnight in the fridge. The oats soak up the liquid so they don't need to be cooked, but you can warm it up if you want. Here's some of my favorite flavors:

sweet potato- big scoop mashed sweet potato, some vanilla and a drizzle of honey
fruity- fresh fruit or jam and a drizzle of honey
chocolate- cocoa powder and a spoonful of peanut butter
nutella- big spoonful of nutella- 'nuff said
orange- mandarin orange slices and marmalade
pina colada- replace milk with coconut milk and add pineapple chunks
ginger apricot- diced crystalized ginger and dried apricots with a drizzle of lyle's golden syrup (this is my absolute favorite)

I like to grab a fruit like a banana and a yogurt or granola bar to go with my morning coffee! Or just keep a box of granola bars in your desk at work and some yogurts in the breakroom fridge and eat when you get there if you don't have time at home!

I love to cook but do not always have time to do so. My morning ritual is a smoothie but I like to have things in the freezer because sometimes I like breakfast for lunch or dinner. So on my day off, I will whip up pancake/waffle batter and muffins and make enough to freeze for at least a week. Along with fruit and yogurt, it is a good way to start the day. I do not eat eggs but if you have the vegetables already prepped it makes it easier in the morning to take a couple eggs and add to a variety of vegetables, mushrooms and low fat cheese add a slice of whole grain toast and you are out the door.

Sounds like a great idea, I try not to burn myself out on things, but I think after living by alone for several years has helped me not get too hung up on eating the same things for a week at a time. Breakfast has always been a tough one for me. I have access to a microwave and a fridge at work so I have to figure that into the equation. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I make big batches of carrot/flax seed/bran muffins and freeze individually. Lately I`ve bringing one of those, a 100 calorie greek yogurt and a manderine. When i get tired of that combo I bring a boiled egg, applesauce cup and dry Cracklin Oatbran cereal. I eat at my desk, so must have very portable food items.

I am eating in food combinations. Like a fast carb paired with protein. I too work. Alot! So I prepare on Sundays.
Cook eggbeaters with chopped green onion peppers mushrooms (or your choice for veggies) along with jimmy dean turkey sausage crumbles. Important note is that these get watery upon cooling so "strain" the final cooked egg mix to allow excess moisture to drain. It will help with rewarming. I measure out 1/4 cup for each day. I pair this with regular instant oatmeal cooked with 1/4 cup blueberries (frozen nothing added) and some Splenda. It easy and fast. And filling!

Thanks for the recipe, will definitely try it. The problem for me besides working the long hours, I am the only one I am cooking for, so I have gotten quite used to eating the same thing for a week at a time. This sounds pretty good. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Here's a Recipe that we love making in our family. It's for a Apple Cinnamon Crockpot Oatmeal. It's quick and easy to make and you can put it in the crockpot the night before and it's ready in the morning when your up rushing around to get to work or school. Hope you enjoy!

2 Medium Apples; Sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 pinch salt
2 cups oats; steel cut work best.
2 cups milk
2 cups water

Place apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in the bottom of a crockpot.

Pour oatmeal, milk and water in

Do NOT stir. Cook overnight for 8-9 hours on low.

I mix up a pan of baked oatmeal on the weekend. It makes 6 servings and takes about a minute in the microwave to reheat. Sweet, low calorie, quick and easy.

There are both a U and an I in quit, but together W and E can do anything.

On the weekend, I cook steel cut oats. I divide them into proper portions and refrigerate. Just microwave and add fruit or nuts depending on your calorie allowance. High fiber and filling so good warm breakfast. Not anything like those instant oat packets-this is a hearty meal.

I came up with a pretty neat idea, that works for me on 12hr shifts. I put a week worth of eggs in a muffin pan, bake in the oven, microwave some turkey bacon, pack up individual containers and toast the english muffin in the morning and assemble and microwave at work, low-cal and great tasting. I am always looking for ideas, I get to work to early to eat before I go so I need things that are easily transportable. Any suggestions would be awesome~ emoticon emoticon emoticon
