I find a large breakfast has been a boon to me staying on track.

While it's large, it's always low fat, whole grain (oatmeal), fruit (usually berries) and high protein (egg whites, sometimes).

May the fork (and tracker) be with you!

Usually it's Greek yogurt with 1/2 whole grain toast with peanut butter and fruit. Sometimes Egg Beaters with veggies added. I switch it up about 1 or 2 times a week. I always thought I ate a decent breakfast, but I realize that I didn't eat enough. I increased what I eat now and I am full longer.

I mix things up. Many times what I have would not be considered breakfast at all. If I have made a pot of soup or chili I will eat some of that. Other days I eat some kind of scrambled egg w/lowfat cheese. I will add in asparagus, mushrooms, or ham and sometimes I will top with enchilada sauce. I don't eat the fruit at breakfast or I am hungry all day (carbs do that to me).

One of my favorite breakfasts is 2 slices of raisin bread toasted and spread with peanut butter and a half of a emoticon banana on each slice. Add a emoticon cup of coffee and my meal is complete. emoticon

Greek yogurt with a handful of frozen blueberries and 1/2 tsp cinnamon is my favorite. If I have hard boiled eggs in the frig I grab one and some grapes or other. I'd rather not have to think about breakfast or take long to fix it.

DH switches it up. Oatmeal with raisons, pecans, bananas, and pumpkin or an omelet with egg whites, onions, peppers, peas and carrots.

I like to switch it up so I don't get bored. My favorite is an omelet made with 1 hole and and 1 egg white with lots of sautéed veggies-peppers, onions, mushrooms, baby spinach and salsa.

We are self employed and work at home and away. I cant have the same thing two days in a row, makes me crazy. I have a few breakfasts that I rotate through. Egg muffin on homemade whole wheat english muffin, sometimes with turkey sausage or salsa with fruit. Bran cereal with nuts and seeds, oatmeal with fruit. Yogurt with nuts, seeds and fruit, or a smoothie. On Sundays, I will splurge on eggs bennie or bread pudding with homemade cinnamon raisin bran. Whatever you make, you can make it healthy.

Hi Groupies,

Every morning at work I have a Nutrigrain bar and a piece of fresh fruit for breakfast. On my days off I'll still have the fruit but make myself some fancied up hot cereal (Steel cut oats, long cooking rolled oats or Farina) instead of the breakfast bar.

How about you? How do you start your day of healthy eating?
