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).
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.
Live out of your imagination, not your history. Steven Covey
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.
You can't change the wind, but you can adjust your sails.
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?
