I had a blueberry bagel with strawberry cream cheese this morning, not the healthiest...but tasted very good just the same.

during the week it's typically ceral/granola with fruit and either milk or yogurt.

On weekends it's oatmeal, or cereal and fruit again, and on occasion a wonderful omelet my bf whips up and toast.

I may try that crockpot oatmeal that sounds great!

How did we go without breakfast for all those years when there are so many delicious choices? emoticon

And we haven't really touched on the non-traditional breakfasts. How about avocados and tomatoes in a pita?

I love my breakfast and can't imagine how people can start their day without eating something. I make a smoothie and take it to work with me and drink it there and usually have a light string cheese or a small bowl of sugar-free instant oatmeal w/a splenda in it.

Happiness is within us all, it's up to us to find our joy - we can't expect others to find it or provide it for us.

The only 'real' thing in our lives thats an absolute constant is CHANGE...and somehow, someway, me must be willing to except and adapt.

Did you know that you don't have to cook oatmeal, whether it's rolled oats or steel cut oats?

On Sunday night, I prepare five breakfasts and put them in the refrigerator. Each bowl contains:
-- 1/2 cup rolled oats or 1/4 cup steel cut oats
-- 1/2 cup milk (cow or soy)
-- a tablespoon or so of craisins, raisins, or dried blueberries

Each morning, I take one to work and microwave it for one minute. I love it. Sometimes I forget to prepare it the night before and mix it up in the morning. I don't eat BF until 10:00, so it seems just a couple of hours is enough time for it to sit.

I'm a hobbit too. Oatmeal is my second BF. The first one is fruit, a mini-bagel with PB, or a whole wheat mini muffin within an hour of arising.

SLOW COOKER STEEL CUT OATS WITH APPLES AND PEARS

Quick and easy to prepare!

COOK AHEAD for the whole week! (especially if you're in a hurry in the morning)

Take it to work and heat it up. you'll be less hungry during the day.


Absolutely DELICIOUS!
I eat it every day once or more, for breakfast, snack, or dessert.

2 points per cup following the recipe as is.


INGREDIENTS

4 small pears, peeled, seeded, and diced
4 smallapples, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 1/2 cups steel cut oats (I like the organic Steel Cut Oats Hot Cereal by Arrohead Mills)
6 cups water
1 stick cinnamon
Add Stevia or Splenda to taste when done

METHOD

Put everything in the slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours on LOW.
Refrigirate.

NOTES!
1. you can make a smaller amount.
2. The amount of water has to be 4 times the amount of oats.
Example:
For 1/2 cup steel cut oats, use 2 cups water
3. This recipe makes enough for the whole week.
4. You may add raisens, dates, dried crunberrie, or other dried fruits, if you wish, while counting your points(calories).
Check Trader Joe's for wonderful selection of dried fruits.
5. I like to eat it hot with vanilla soyslender milk (you can use skim milk)
6. You may add pinch of ground cardemon, cloves, pumpkin spice......
7. It fills you up (HIGH FIBER: 8 grams per 1/4 cup dry steel cut oats plus high fiber in apple and pears)
8. I add splenda to taste and 1 TBS. of DaVinchi sugar free, fat free syrup (0 calories per 1 TBS.)
9. I add (for additional points) 1 cup berries
(I buy frozen berries at Trader Joe's)
11. It's also great with 2 TBS. FF (or low fat) cottage cheese
12. YUMMY with 1-2 tsp. low fat PEANUT BUTTER (for additional points)!!!

My almost-every-morning breakfast is 2 TBSP natural peanut butter on a slice of Ezekial bread (now I'm making my own whole wheat bread, so that has changed a little). I'll either have a cup of skim milk or a ton of coffee with a little skim milk.

I love breakfast and eat it every day. I leave the house early, so I bring breakfast to work with me. I make breakfast bars or muffins that are healthful. I grab a piece of string cheese and fruit to have with them. I also buy the mini-wheat bagels sometimes and have them with fat-free cream cheese--2 bagels plus fruit. I sometimes bring cereal, yogurt and fruit.

On the weekends we eat waffles or omelets or oatmeal.

I like to vary breakfast but it it usually whole grain, dairy and fruit in some form.

Egg white omelet with chopped onions, celery, and whatever leftover veggies I have from yesterday's dinner and 1 oz. lowfat cheese.

Plain lowfat yogurt with Uncle Sam cereal and either raisins or fresh fruit or berries.

Nature Valley Crunchy granola bar if I'm running late.

I either have mulit-grain oatmeal with a piece of peanut butter toast or scrambled egg beaters with a whole grain english muffin and half a grapefruit. Neither are really suited for eating on the run though.

mmmm...I just had an avocado and tomato sandwich for breakfast. Since I'm so bad about skipping breakfast, this seems like a very refreshing way to start the day.

I wonder if it would last overnight?

Another one I like is soy yogurt with nuts sprinkled on top.

Any one have breakfasts they do to share?
