Admiral - I tink it was an A.

I had the same thing I listed before and gave myself an A. Old Fashion Oatmeal and scrambled eggs [1 yolk + 3 whites.] But it is getting so I am enjoying eggs to frequently considering that I must manage my cholesterol.
I give myself a B+ for lacking variety.

The Breakfast King made french toast for us this morning, using my freshly made whole wheat bread and egg beaters, accompanied by a slice of turkey bacon and a large orange juice. Of course, have to rate it an A or I might hurt his feelings! emoticon

We had a really late breakfast, more like a brunch, but my sweetheart made a 1/2 real egg, 1/2 egg substitute omelette with a little low fat cheese, green pepper and onion in it and mixed in some turkey bacon. We had our usualy 1/2% milk and orange juice with it. Yum! Grade is an A!

It's a snowy morning, so I had my Thick & Rough oatmeal with a tsp of brown sugar, a T of dried blueberries, 1/4 C of 1% milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Most mornings I get by on a piece of toast or cold cereal, so this was a good breakfast for me. Not enough protein though, so I get a B.

You are honest.

I have my rice cooker filled with ingredients for old fashion oatmeal:
Skim Milk, oats, pumpkin spice [that I am trying to be frugal and use up from several years ago], milled flax seed. A cup of this is about 160 calories, 30 grams of carbs, 3 grams fat, and 7 grams fat. If I add some kind of protein, I think I will have a pretty good breakfast.

I am making enough to get me through the weekend.

I will give me an A.

Every morning, I have a cup of coffee and a higher fiber chocolate or strawberry pop tart. Definitely not the best choice, but I need something I can eat quickly and don't have to cook too long.

Today I had
2 cups decaf coffee
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1 cup of apples and a cinn stick added while cooking
1/2 cup FF yogurt
1/4 cup of pumpkin and pumpkin spice added to the yogurt

Some times i eat half of it and then 2 hrs later eat the other half, a way of eating 6 times a day.

I fix a crock pot of oats and it last me all week, some times it's my evening snack to. I've tried several different fruits before I cook it, peaches, blueberries, apples and cinn stick. I put it in the crock pot before i go to bed and have a hot meal waiting for me the next morning, yummm

I am not a morning person so I have a routine down. Toast a Thomas high fiber English muffin. Micro 1/3 cup egg beaters. Spread one wedge of Laughing Cow Lite Swiss cheese on the muffin while adding one slice of Jones Farm Canadian bacon to the micro. Throw it all together and have a high fiber and protein breakfast sandwich. Grab my coffee and add skim milk (I am a Cafe AuLait person). I will take a piece of fruit with me for a morning snack and feel like I have all my bases covered for the morning.

Please keep in mind I'm married to The Breakfast King...

Today we had slices of my homemade whole wheat bread for french toast with turkey sausage, 1/2% milk, a pat of unsalted butter. Didn't have enough room left for my 6 ounces of orange juice that I'll use as a snack later on today.

My breakfasts are always high in calories, like 500. But I'd rate them A+ just because they're always a hot breakfast and I don't have to fix them! emoticon

Seasonal fruit, grown locally, as much as I feel like eating. Usually it comes to about 250 calories, very little fat, very little protein, lots of vitamins.
I used food tracker for a year and have recently stopped. Overall I was meeting my nutrition goals and as a tool it had served me well. I found, for example, that on a daily basis I was reaching a level of protein consumption that was within the safe consumption range recommended by the World Health Organisation. So I really don't care that my breakfast is of itself low protein.
Grade A, because I'm Awesome.

Diane, yours sounds super yummy!

Here's my favorite breakfast:
-1 scallion chopped scrambled with
-2 egg whites and 1 egg topped with
-2 Tbsp feta (from Sam's club)
-1 cup cheerios (from Sam's club)
-1/3 cup non-fat milk
-1 cup coffee
-2 Tbsp half n half (leftover from holiday guests)

It sounds like a lot, is significantly less than 1/3 of my daily calories, so woohoo! I think I get an "A" :-)

I'd give myself a B+ maybe an A- on breakfast.
Packet instant oatmeal, a few frozen blueberries, some ground flax seed, and a few walnuts. Also have non-fat milk to drink. It's not the cheapest breakfast but it has built in portion control on the oatmeal and the rest add a lot of good nutrition.

My breakfast:
Low carb yogurt [carbs & protein]
Added a yogurt container of frozen mixed fruit [carbs & fiber]
1/2 ounce of whole natural Almonds [fat, protein, and fiber.]
[I try to make sure I have some fiber at each meal as I think it helps manage my appetite and my cholesterol.]
My yogurt was 5 containers for $2 - good price.
Frozen fruit - much cheaper than the same fruit fresh.
I buy my Almonds at Walgreens for about half the price of the grocery stores or of Walmart.
The calories = 215

I will eat another breakfast food just before going to the Y. Haven't decided what.. But we still have chex cereals that we bought for $1.86 a box before Christmas.

I almost forgot to grade myself. This is an A.

Coffee may have anti-oxidants. But that is a D- if you don't eat anything else with it.

You get a C if you are missing any of the following:
Protein, Carbs, Fat.

You get a B if you include Protein, Carbs, Fat.
A B+ if you also used the SPARK nutrition tracker.
An A- if you did all of the requirements for a B+ and kept your calories at or less than 1/3 of your suggested daily calories.

For an A or A+
Your breakfast must meet your personal requirements for being both frugal and healthy.
Remember, FRUGAL does not mean cheap. Cheap got a lot of us into an unhealthy situation. Frugal means not being wasteful and making the best use of the resources we have.

Share your breakfast menu and grade yourself!
