When I have cereal I'll put a half cup of blueberries on it (when I have them). I also like oatmeal (I use a Quaker low sugar packet) and I add blueberries and almonds (2 tbsp smushed into pieces on a cutting board). A breakfast burrito--recently I made one with a whole wheat tortilla & spread 1 wedge of laughing cow cheese all over the middle of it-I scrambled one egg and added that on top of the cheese, rolled it up & it's pretty tasty. If you have any time any veggies are good added to that. A piece of toast with 2 tbsp peanut butter & 1 tsp jam
I have 1 cup of 1% milk with breakfast every day. A piece of fruit added to any anything you have is always a good addition.

I make this on Sunday, refrigerate it in squares, and just nuke it for about one minute when I want one. They also freeze well! Just microwave for two minutes or so (depending on your microwave) and you're good to go! recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai l. asp?recipe=760075

Here's some of my workday morning quickies (and it has to be easy & quick or I won't do it):
TJ's frozen oatmeal (the ones that come in a two-pack, they're like fat hockey pucks), 3 minutes in the micro and you're done.
English muffin in the toaster, fresh brown egg in the fry pan, run out and get the newspaper, turn the egg, get a triangle of Laughing Cow cheese out, spread LC cheese triangle on English muffin, put egg on, and I have my own little Egg McMuffin in nothing flat!
A gulp of Kefir or some such thing is always good, especially with some toast or a muffin.
Dry toast with cottage cheese all over the top, a dollop of jam smeared around on top of that, stick in broiler or micro to melt it all a bit (just a 10-20-30 seconds), kinda like a hot Danish with some protein.
I have to admit my breakfasts are pretty unimaginative. Poached egg on wholewheat toast, or cereal during the week. The cereal is boring quite apart from not being either filling or particularly good for you. The thing is I have so little time in the mornings - I have to get out of the house by 7am, so I need something I can eithe rprepare in advance (night before) or super quick. Any ideas would be very welcome!
