On Rachael Ray this morning I saw Gwenyth Paltrow making some great sweet potato muffins that are good enough for a meal. You can find them at www.rachaelrayshow.com/food/recipes/

I got some prepared Tobbouli at Trader Joes (it comes in a small tupperware near the chicken salads), apparently s/b spelled Tabbouleh and I mixed it with canned tuna. Then I put a spread of it on half a bagel. Under 300 calories altogether.

Great ideas! Love the english muffin idea :) I haven't tried smoothies with fat free milk...I'm slowly transitioning lol. But maybe in something like that it wouldn't seem as "off" I usually drink 1% or 2% depending on where I'm shopping as Aldi's doesn't have 1% in the gallon jugs (yet). But FF in a smoothie would probably be totally yummy!

Thanks again for the tips :) emoticon

Hi,
Lately about one or two times a week I have an english muffin toasted, a fried egg (pam cooking spray), Lite Ham 1/2 slice and 1/2 slice of cheese that melts on contact with english muffin and hot egg. Very good, no condiments. My husband puts ketsup on his.
I figured with the products I use it's 300 calories.

Also if you can make your own smoothies:
1 cup any fruit (can mix fruits still measure 1 cup), 1 cup Fat Free Milk, 8 ice cubes, Blend and drink with a straw - Takes a long time to drink!!!

On those lines I discovered blending chocolate Fat Free Milk with 1 banana is the same as a slim fast shake regarding nutrients and calories.

I Looked and looked for a way to have a fast, yet healthy breakfast in the morning. Oatmeal would be a good option, but by the time I get done adding sugar and even fruit and such, it can get pretty calorie heavy. I try to stick with eggs and then I happened upon this little hint somewhere online.

Make Mini Omelettes! Tried it this weekend and it's awesome! Here is my recipe

6 eggs-scrambled
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1/4 c. cheddar cheese
4-5 pieces of crumbled bacon
4-5 baby bella mushrooms

combine all ingredients and spoon into greased muffin tins, bake at 350 until firm. I used Pam to grease the muffin tins but I'm thinking next time I'll just use butter. The Pam cause a little bit of a crispy, bitter outside that I would like to avoid for next time. They turned out pretty darn tasty other than the very outside edges which are still way edible. Let them cool and place in the fridge. Whenever you want one, just pop in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and you are good to go! Plus they are portable and only about the size of a muffin :) this recipe made 9 mini omelettes.

What are your quick and easy breakfast recipes?
