I've also revamped my breakfast to be more satisfying and to 'last longer' throughout my morning. My favorites include the following:
Cereal with milk, fresh orange, tea. Cereal is whole grain and often high fiber. I like Cheerios, Life, Kashi Go Lean Crunch, and oatmeal.
High fiber toast (1 slice) with peanut butter (1 tablespoon), fresh fruit, tea.
Banana, skim milk, tea, and single portion (or less) of some sugary pastry. I often do this when hubby buys coffee cake or Danish on the weekends.
2 eggs, 1 slice cheese, veggie add-ins, fresh fruit, high fiber toast with jelly, tea. This is a 'large' breakfast for me. I'll eat it on days I sleep late and typically have only two meals that day. I will also eat it early in the morning of a long day away from home.
In general, I try to have two servings of fruit with breakfast. I've reduced my fruit juice intake and substituted fresh, in-season fruit. I try not to eat a high protein breakfast (like the eggs meal noted) before I exercise, since that upsets my stomach. Thus, I will reserve the egg meal for my rest days or have it for lunch, since I prefer to exercise between breakfast and lunch every day.
I hope these suggestions help you.
