Had a friend here yesterday and we are both following the 17 day. I used 2 T. oil, and I diced the following: 2 green peppers, 2 onions, broccoli, browned that, and added mushrooms. This makes a lot, I add 1/3C-1/2C to 2 eggs and scramble. I have lots left over to use in the following week for breakfast. I have done this idea for a long time. Any green veggie that is leftover from supper the night before goes in, peas, green beans. I add spinach at the last minute.
Hope this gives you some idea on breakfast.

Or better yet....a breakfast casserole for the whole family!
Breakfast Casserole Recipe Author: Becky Yokeley Love
Yield: 6 servings
1-1/2 cup homemade turkey sausage 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese (divided) 1 cup liquid egg substitute (equivalent to 4 eggs) 2 cups unsweetened almond milk 1/2 cup diced onion 1/2 cup diced green pepper 2 slices whole wheat bread (toasted and quartered) [This makes the recipe C3] salt / pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350.
Toast and cube wheat bread if using this recipe for C3. If you are on C1, omit the bread.
Spray 8x8 baking dish with non stick spray and place bread cubes in bottom of pan and sprinkle sausage evenly over the bread, then sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese over the sausage (you may sprinkle veggies over cheese or combine in next step).
In a bowl, combine liquid egg, milk, onion, peppers, other veggies if wanted, salt , and pepper. Then pour mixture evenly over the pan.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese over egg mixture.
Bake for 1 hour or until cheese is browned and a knife inserted comes out clean.
You could add mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, really any omelet veggies you would like to add to bulk it up even more.
To make this C1 compliant, just omit the bread and add veggies to bulk it up.

I also like the yogurt and fruit option in the AM, but if I feel like something more savory I'll mix up some turkey burger and a couple chopped green/red peppers. There's no rule that says you can't have lunch for breakfast or breakfast for lunch or dinner as well. Happy eating!
I'm usually busy running to work, then at work starting work... lol I drink my lemon water here, then at work, get my green tea... then I just have my yogurt and my fruit a bit later. I keep it pretty simple. I don't mind eggs, but for me, that's only when I have time, so that's only on the weekends. Good luck!
So excited about the 17 Day Diet. It has truly taught me new ways of eating and being healthy. Now, I juice and feel that the 17 Day Diet has taught me so much about food that it's influenced me to be a healthier person and I strive for a healthier way of life every day!

I was going to suggest the mock french toast as well, it's my favorite. Also, when you eat the greek yogurt it is farely high in protein so it stays with you longer. A smoothie is also a great on-the-go way to have a good breakfast plus you can add protein powder for the added lasting power :) Good luck!
I like to make a smoothie on days I don't want eggs. Or I eat my yogurt and some fruit. You can also eat just about any lunch or dinner food for breakfast too. Maybe I am just odd but I sometimes with have chicken, a salad, etc for breakfast. There is no rule that says you can only have breakfast foods at breakfast! I know you said you are not a fan of eggs but try the Mock French Toast recipe---you will not know you are eating eggs!

"Getting through trials doesn't reveal our strength. (No, the trials do a pretty good job of that.) Getting through trials reveals God's grace and produces our character. So yes, get up. If God allows, get up to fight the good fight. But as you wipe the dust off your back, don't pat." -Jimmy Peņa
Breakfast is my hardest meal. I am used to having two graham crackers when I first get up and then a bowl of oatmeal. This obviously won't work for cycle 1. I am not a big egg fan. It would help me to get some ideas for breakfast. Do you have some good ones to share?
