I am a HUGE fan of the Quaker weight control oatmeal in maple and brown sugar!! Tastes just like the regular. i put flax seeds in the bowl prior to cooking and its a must have. I dont limit it to just breakfast either..... breakfast, lunch or dinner one of my meals is this.
on the go I have,
a fruit (apple, banana, orange, grapes)
yogurt (regular cant have the fake sugars)
glass of water
maybe coffee or tea plain
one flat bread made from flax wrap
one scrambled egg and one scrambled egg white (or egg subsitute)
i love love love omeletes made with spinch and cheese with salsa on top!
a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich is yummy when in a hurry with some yougurt on the side
apple slices to dip into peanut butter
one cup of any lower sugar/high fiber cereal with skim milk
a piece of fruit
I eat something different for breakfast almost everyday...but here's some ideas:
1 large egg, (omelette)
1/2 cup of spinach
tsp of italian seasoning
1 oz of cheese
1 morningstar veggie sausage patty
1 whole grain waffle
1/2 banana (slice and put on waffle)
1 tbsp organic pure maple syrup
1 morningstar veggie sausage patty
2 morningstar breakfast scramblers (SO YUMMY!)
Fruit smoothie made with: silken tofu, strawberries, bananas, 1/2 pear and raspberries
1 Cup of Kashi cereal
1/2 Cup of skim milk
1 cup of your choice of berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)
My version of a hobo's skillet: 1 large egg, 1/2 green pepper, 1/4 cup of mushrooms, 1/2 C of morningstar veggie ground beef crumbles, some onion sliced up, crumbled tofu, a little pinch of feta cheese
I don't eat red meat because of how it interacts with my PCOS...I substitute ground beef with veggie crumbles, ground turkey, and ground chicken.
I hope this helps!

First Mini Goal: lose 15-20 pounds by the end of summer!
Usually a high fiber/high protein with fruit- Say, Kashi GoLean with a banana or oatmeal with apple sauce or dried plums. I am also a fan of the kashi frozen waffles (blueberry!!) though if I eat those I tend to leave out the fruit.
Oh, and I better not forget- the requisite 2 cups of coffee.

egg w/ spinach, cheerios with fatfree milk and fruit, fresh fruit and veggies, oatmeal, breakfast bar (only when I'm running late), piece of whole-grain 35 cal toast with egg
Oatmeal with fruit OR Grits with veggie bacon OR Yogurt/cottage cheese with fruit if I have time....
Work mornings are usually a western alternative bagel with either peanut butter or cream cheese with preserves.

BELIEVE in the POWER of your DREAMS!
I've seen those--how well does it work? I do much better if I have some protein for breakfast but I don't always have the time.
I do much better when I have some form of protein for breakfast.
Usually, I do an omelette with veggies and use some herbs to jazz it up. (Veggies can be anything from tomatoes, mushrooms, broccoli--whatever the mood dictates.) I'll add a piece of whole wheat toast, or a mini whole wheat bagel to it.
If I have cereal (anything from oatmeal, to kashi autumn wheat, etc.), then I have some string cheese or yogurt/cottage cheese to add some protein, and I usually put some berries or a banana on the cereal.
Or sometimes I switch things around and have soup for breakfast, then have breakfasty things for lunch.
Today your story begins
From the Rookie Running Board: "Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start."
slim fast shake OR Quaker Nutrition for Women Oatmeal OR oatmeal from scratch OR yogurt w/ high fiber cereal OR greek eggs made w/ 1 whole egg, 2 egg whites
Usually I also have 2 serving of fruit in the morning as snacks. No juice any more for me!
Kriste's weekly goals: ST 3X; cardio 2000 calories burned; eat better
For my wedding we got a toaster that cooks an egg and meat all with the push of a button. I use my Nature's Own Wheat 'N Fiber bread (7g carbs per slice) and have a protein-filled, low-carb sandwich. You can also add a slice of low-fat cheddar to it!
Either that or I can use that bread, dip it in egg substitute, put cinnamon on it and make French toast. I have low carb/sugar syrup that isn't have bad either.
Or if I'm in a rush, 3/4 c. of cottage and 4-10 strawberries. Yum!

Cereal with milk, normally. I like frosted mini-wheats because they have lots of fiber. If I'm in a hurry I keep Quaker oats at work, and can make them using the water cooler. Saves time and is easy to have on hand as it doesn't spoil.
When I don't have to work on the weekends I've been trying to make whole grain hot cereals with fruit. This past week I got something called 10-grain hot cereal, very healthy and adding fruits and a touch of honey it's not bad.
Today it was egg substitute. One serving has only 30 calories and no fat. Then I will have a slice of light whole wheat toast with sugar free jam. It was pretty good and probably only 100 calories. I also have a banana first thing when I wake up before hitting the treadmill. I think having breakfast gets your metabolism going so you can burn calories better.

Quaker Oat BRAN with 1c fruit, usually berries of some sort either fresh on top or frozen that I put in while cooking to thaw then 1/2c either 1% milk or Silk soy milk...
Kashi GoLean with the same fruit and milk..
Sometimes I have 1/2 banana or apple in the hot cereal with cinnamon added instead.
Once in a while I'll have a Thomas's light multi-grain English muffin with a fried egg and a slice of cheese on it...

I usually have a thomas light multi grain english muffin with light veggie cream cheese and a dannon light and fit smoothie. Or I have the weight control oatmeal with a piece of fruit, banana or raisins.

1 cup of Crispix Cereal
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup 1% milk
I make myself a protein shake
Sometimes I don't limit myself to breakfast foods for breakfast. I've had sandwiches, leftovers from dinner, soup, you name it.
Whatever I eat, though, I make sure that the protein and carbs are balanced, that it's not more than 30g of carbs, and I record it here on my nutrition page.
There will be days that I know I could never finish a half-marathon, but I have the rest of my life to remember the day I did.
Try making some healthy pancakes (recipes on SparkRecipes) ahead of time, then freeze. In the morning, pop 2 of them in the toaster and then spread low-fat peanut butter and a little bit of jam or honey. I'm allergic to artificial sweeteners, so I just make sure I'm not using more than a tbsp of anything sweet.
If you thin the batter out with a little more liquid, you can make crepes, too! They usually turn out bigger, but nuke them, spread them, and then you can roll them up! Forget the jam, and roll up around a banana, even!
I also make 3-grain cereal (enough for 4 servings at a time with 1/4 cup raisins & 1/4 cup sliced almonds thrown into the pot along with a tbsp of brown sugar and a tsp of cinnnamon), I put it into cereal dishes, cover and refridgerate. In the morning, nuke and PRESTO!!! Hot, high fiber cereal for breakfast! You can pour a little milk on if you like, or serve with a cup of milk/juice/tea/coffee. As my grandmother used to say - "This'll stick to your ribs!"
