I have not tried this yet with steel cut oats. You can use oatmeal the kind you cook cover with almond milk and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (overnight works too) and it's done . No cooking, it's great.

oatmeal (especially steel cut oats) is great with added dried fruit and cooked with almond milk in place of water. Do it in big batches and freeze in individual portion sizes (or refrigerate if you're going to eat it daily)

I'm continuing to eat breakfast and I'm enjoying it. I've gotten some good ideas on Spark recipes.

I'm excited. I found a breakfast recipe which I tried , I liked, and will do often.

Take oatmeal (the kind you cook), place in bowl, add almond milk (or whatever milk) you prefer to cover oatmeal, add some raisins cover put in fridge 4hours or overnight.

I really enjoyed it and it was ready for me as soon as I got home.

yeah, if I tried to do anything strenuous without eating at least a little, I would just pass out. I've had days when I rode my bike to work without enough to eat and part way through the morning, I'm sitting on my classroom floor with tunnel vision and too dizzy to stand up and have to send a kid to bring me candy or orange juice to get my blood sugar back to normal. I'm not diabetic - just need my breakfast!

I walk 4 miles each AM asap upon rising. I usually have breakfast at some point after I shower etc. depending on my schedule. I'm working on making sure of breakfast each day. It's just a bad habit I've gotten in to..

While I agree that breakfast is not for everyone - based on your own circumstances and metabolism; I usually need something - even if it's not immediately upon rising.

Well, I always have to walk the dog first, so it's definitely not an immediate event.


I do find, based on what I choose to eat, how long before I need something else, though

Definitely eat breakfast! For me, it's usually a homemade smoothie, with loads of fruits & leafy greens. Then I have a late-morning snack and enjoy a late lunch as well (usually 1:30 or 2:00). If by chance, I have to meet someone for lunch who wants the noon hour, I'll skip the late-morning snack.

I eat breakfast, its what keeps me going! I prefer variety and usually take a light breakfast if I have a busy schedule!

I'm with you - a morning person.
Hubby is the opposite - until the doctor told him that he must/should eat breakfast; he was often a breakfast skipper. He eats later in the day, though, whereas I could do without an evening snack (or could eat one out of habit to join him - which is a poor excuse)

I live for breakfast, usually eating two solid meals within my first four waking hours, and then lunch at about hour 7 of the day. If I don't eat again all day, I'm fine, but I can't skip those early meals. Everything about my natural rhythms screams "morning person"

It really depends on my macros/ratios the previous day. However I normally eat anywhere from 2 - 4 hours after I get up.

I eat within 2 hours of getting up then eat lunch at regular time but dinner is pretty late. I am trying to fix that.

As someone who works nights, I don't have a 'breakfast-lunch-dinner' schedule like other people do. I eat within 2-3 hours of getting up and that's my breakfast. However, I did a bit of research on this 'intermittent fasting' and it just looks like a dude trying to peddle his wares through pseudo-science. I can't find a single study that promotes skipping breakfast every day or even skipping meals altogether.

If I don't eat breakfast, I get very nauseous. I usually have oatmeal, berries, and a hard boiled egg, but today was 1/2 sweet potato, 1/2 cup black beans, and an egg.

I'm always hungry as soon as I wake up. I have never voluntarily skipped breakfast in my life.

This line from the article made me laugh: "When it comes to whether or not breakfast is important, the paleo community is firmly divided."
Never mind what the science says, the neanderthals must preach!

I was reading something this morning about some people not eating unless they are hungry, which means that they skip breakfast (or some other meal).

Some people call it intuitive eating; some people call it intermittent fasting.

Opinions?
