We can't avoid everything! And in this case the benefits outweigh the negatives. It is harder to find the pancake makers though.

There use to be multiple manufacturers and stores who carried them. Target is all I can find now and not sure how many are still available. I have an extra in the box in my pantry.

Yeah, I don't like Teflon either but if this little appliance is only used on trips and if we're careful to use a silicone spatula we'll be okay. Can't avoid EVERYTHING can we?

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

That is exactly what my breakfast looks like!!!

It has a teflon coating which many don't like (myself included), but under the conditions I don't have a problem with using it.

When my husband and I travel (by car not by plane) I have a pancake maker www.target.com/s/pancake-maker that I use to cook myself some eggs.

When you open the lid there are 2 indentions for pancake mix. Which is perfect size to hold an entire egg. I have a small spatula and my spray oil and I always can have protein in the morning.

Since I am hypoglycemic I have to have protein in the a.m. and I am allergic to wheat/gluten so that leaves out Continental Breakfasts for me.

My husband teases me that I should write a traveling cook book. Cook and Eat in Your Room! He is such a smart alec!

That is hillarious about the hair curlers! No one wants cold eggs.

Thanks for all the ideas folks. I often have hummus, brocolli & carrots, organic toast & cheese. I definitely need to change things up more....

I have dietary restrictions so my breakfasts are different from others.

Often I have diced grilled veggies w/egg, salmon, or chicken.

One of my favorites is something I stumbled onto while visiting Washington D.C. We could not find anything that I could eat for breakfast (for a reasonable price)
but found that an asian restaurant across the street from our hotel made a wonderful ginger brown rice w/a fried egg.

Every night we would place an order for the Ginger Brown Rice w/a fried egg, put it in the frig and then in the morning I would place the plastic container on top of my electric hairculers flipping it occasionally until warm enough to eat.

I warm it in my toaster oven now but still like to eat the Ginger Brown rice w/a fried egg (as in scrambled) egg.

I just had that one for breakfast and used about 1/2 cup water. Over all I wasn't impressed with the dish. The ricotta's sandy texture, which is great in cheezy Italian dishes didn't seem to go with the oatmeal texture (for me) and the peanut butter, something that I love better than my own mother, was just lost in the whole thing. I was tempted to add another tablespoon of that yummy stuff but then I'd be shooting myself in my own diet foot wouldn't I? The blueberries are a great thing in oatmeal any way you make it!

Tomorrow I think I'm going to make the Banana Walnut Oatmeal and add a big spoonful of cocoa powder just for fun and for the extra nutrients in cocoa.

I'm on an oatmeal kick all of a sudden. I've been totally off (almost totally anyway) all grains for about a month and I think my cravings just broke loose!

Yep. I should have been more clear, In the recipe I state to "cook" the oatmeal, then add remaining ingredients. I guess I assume most people use water to cook oatmeal. I will edit that.

I'm still wondering if there's suppose to be water listed in the ingredients to the Blueberry-Ricotta Oatmeal.

LOL yes I am Ani, no worries! I was thinking of adding nuts to it and maybe some more spices. Cardamon comes to mind.

Evelyn, try the pumpkin oatmeal with an egg, I'm not kidding, if you plop an egg in there and whisk it up while the egg cooks and thickens the cereal it is so, so good and the extra protein, nutrients are a real boost! Wait, you've a vegan, right? Did I remember right? My poor brain!

I wonder if the "help" people here on SP can get them deleted for us. It sure makes the cookbook look sparse and a bit unfriendly to have all those blank spaces. Oh well, Laura, you are a great leader!!

I just went and had a look at the cookbook. It was LABYRINTH's recipes that are ALL marked private now. (They weren't yesterday). She used to be an inactive coleader on this team, but after I didn't hear from her for 6 months and she wouldn't answer any of my emails, I deleted her as a co leader.
I can't even delete them from the cookbook.
That makes me kind of pissed

seems strange to share the recipe then decide to UNSHARE it. Maybe they have their reasons... who knows.

Maybe they did it by mistake; you know, they didn't know they were supposed to check or uncheck some little box. There are details on websites like SP that can easily get overlooked.
Just a thought

I understand that some people make their pages private, but why would a recipe on a public site be private? Spark People shares so much with others in the same boat. That seems strange to me on this kind of site.

It means that after I put it in the cookbook, the author of the recipe has marked the recipe private. I will go and have a look later on and delete the "private" recipes.

Here's an idea that helps breakfast go faster. If you plan on having pancakes or some other baked thing like a muffin fresh and hot out of the oven in the morning, measure all the stuff you need before bed and mix all the dry ingredients together.

Just FYI the Blueberry Ricotta Oatmeal recipe in the cookbook doesn't have any water in the ingredients list.

I love the pumpkin oatmeal. I had some this morning and I added an egg to it, whisked it up real good while the egg thickened it and made it almost like pudding. Poured on a little almond milk and YUMMMM!
