This sounds similar to a lot of my breakfasts - I think it's fine. I tend to go for low fat cheese rather than FF, though. I do change around the bread to keep it new - anything from a bagel to these new things I found called Toasters. The only think I would add is that I usually have a cup of milk with it. Definitely keeps me fuller than the sandwich alone. I also add a side so it seems like a complete meal. Some fruit is always my preference.

Hope this helps!

My favorite breakfast protein is turkey sausage. I've gotten to where I'd rather have two turkey sausage patties for 180 calories than one regular sausage for 210 calories :). More filling, too!

I also agree about the eggs...Eggs have lots of vitamins...nutrients are in the yolk of the egg.

Advice changed on the egg years ago, in fact they now say that an egg can raise good cholesterol rather than the bad. It is a low cost and low carb source of protein...find more protein in cottage cheese and a handful of matchstick carrots for breakfast. Barley has good protein. Quinoa and Kasha which are extremely high in protein can be made at breakfast time.

Flaxseeds, chia seeds, and other sources are chicken, turkey, beans, peas, fish, cottage cheese, Mozzerella, and peanut butter, parm cheese, Pepitas (already shelled pumpkin seeds 1 ounce has 8 grams of protein), pistachios, lamb, lentils, lobster, crab and tuna too
A pork loin chop has protein, so does beef jerky!

Make a breakfast taco...scramble egg with green pepper and onion, Stuff the taco with the mix and lettuce and top with chopped tomatoes or salsa...Have 2

I think your breakfast sounds great! If it works for you, perfect.

Protein at breakfast is very important-- if I just eat cereal or toast, by 10:30 I'm ready to eat everything in sight. I like Kashi Go Lean (with 3/4 cup milk and a small banana), because it's quick and it tastes pretty good and it has a decent amount of protein. I eat a half-ounce of almonds mid-morning for a little extra protein. It's enough -- just enough -- to keep me going until lunch.

There was a sales rep where I work who was continually dropping in to see me at 11:50 am or 11:45, with an hour's worth of issues to go over. I finally had to tell him I go to lunch at noon, and I'm on a diet, so unless you want me to eat your briefcase, you need to start showing up either an hour earlier or after lunch. Point being, I get really hungry in the morning, and breakfast absolutely has to "count."

I have eaten last nights dinner leftovers for breakfast. Dinner is usually centered around the protein and I like dinner food better.

I make a fruit smoothie with protein powder added on most days, and on the weekends, I have egg white scramble (Egg Beaters egg whites and left over veggies).

Morning Star breakfast patties are good too, and fast to make.

I guess to each their own on the eggs - I always eat the yolk.

Breakfast sounded good! Lean ham is one of the better "breakfast meat" choices (although - sodium! but at least it is lean and full of protein).

I'm going to politely take exception to Ldhawke's statement that egg yolks are too high in cholesterol. I think what s/he is implying is that consuming whole eggs will raise the level of cholesterol in your blood. Yes, egg yolks contain cholesterol. However, many recent studies show that consuming cholesterol in your diet, especially in the form of one whole egg per day, does not affect the level of cholesterol in your blood:

And the egg yolk provides needed nutrients, as well as a little fat, which will keep you feeling satisfied longer.

I think your breakfast sounded great but personally, I would drop the egg (too much cholesterol for me) and make it 2 egg whites. You can also switch out the lean ham for a lean turkey sausage patty or some lean turkey bacon. Save that Greek yougurt for a mid-morning snack. It's a great way to add more protein to your eating plan.

Watch out for FF cheese. It's no longer a real food. It is full of chemicals. You'd be better off having small portion of the real thing and getting the nutrients instead of the chemicals.

Wooo... very scary to actually put down my starting weight total! Got to get real with myself and lose it!

Breakfast really needs to do three things: give you nutrition and energy, fit within your daily overall calories and nutrition, and it needs to taste good. I absolutely think you need to *like* the food you eat or else you aren't going to eat it for long.

So did the breakfast you had this morning keep you feeling full and give you enough energy to make it to your next meal/snack? Does it fit, overall, in your daily calories and nutritional ranges? Did you like it?

If you answered yes to all three of these, your breakfast sounds fantastic!

So I'm new at all this and I know protein is important. I have tried having greek yogurt for breakfast but I am just not used to the taste. So I'm trying to figure out another way of getting a lot of protein with out a lot of calorie. This morning I had a sandwich thin with 1 slice of FF cheese,1 egg, 1 egg white and 2 slices of lean ham. How does this sound or does anyone have any better suggustions.

Thank in advance for all the help.

Michelle
