I am eating the oatmeal that I mixed out of the Sparkpeople cookbook, I add one tablespoon of chia seeds with 1/2 cup of skim milk. I feel satisfied until my snack of Greek yoghurt with berries around 10 am. As I rise at 5:15 every day and eat breakfast after my workout.

I start with green tea and then a breakfast sandwich.

I need to lose some weight I have gained in the past couple of months so I am replacing my normal breakfast with a low carb high protein drink in the morning. I will do this for a few weeks until my shoulder is recovered enough to resume intense water aerobics workout.

yes indeed if you add nuts then fat-free works & just saves some calories!

lately i've been alternating:
-high-fiber cereal (right now, trader joe Os) with freeze-dried fruit (cheap to ship, tastes like lucky charms marshmallows to me) and a cup of 1% cow's milk plus a little coconut sap sweetener, which i found recently and is growing on me (i'm allergic to stevia, it appears- i puke, as i do with white tea and bivalve shellfish; no other allergies)
-eggs with canadian bacon slices (60 calories for 3!) or cheese and peppers and onions and whole wheat toast (with just a bit of real butter)
-1 hard-boiled whole egg and 1 white and 1 1/2 cups of fruit salad
-16-oz organic smoothie from Life Alive Urban Oasis (estimated based on size & ingredients at 350 calories but they have no nutrition facts; quote "but everything's REALLY good for you!"

this depends on whether i packed the cereal or had time to make the eggs, or if i'm getting it on the run at work!

i've experimented with almond and hemp milks and prefer them to cow's for everything except brownies and coffee, but cow's is more convenient.

...and i hate oatmeal emoticon i keep trying to like it but nope.

GypsyGoth, I do not have a problem finding my greek yogurt (non-fat) without additives and I add my own fruits and nuts and/or sweetener. nuts have some healthy fat. So there is a way to have a healthy non-fat yogurt. Plus greek yogurt is higher in protein!

Polskarenia, I couldn't have the fruit juice (too much sugar for me) but the rest of your breakfast sound good to me! I take a mega multi-vitamin as I am mal-absorptive but my naturopath and I keep a close watch on my nutrient levels and change my supplements as needed. I have decaf with non-fat milk after breakfast and then mid-morning I switch to an herbal tea. In winter I sometimes have a low-fat hot cocoa drink. Just something about a cold windy rainy day and hot cocoa! It is comforting.

My weekday breakfast constitutes fruit juice, porridge made with a cup of skimmed milk, topped with fresh blueberries, followed by a fruit tea. I also take my supplements at this time - calcium, magnesium, oil of evening primrose and glucosamine sulphate with chondroitin - in readiness for middle age (I'm 51 and staying young for the moment!)

I think that's pretty healthy.... my weekend breakfasts vary, although fruit juice and fruit tea always play a part!

IMO, you should stay away from fat-free dairy products because you need at least SOME fat to absorb the calcium from them! not to mention most fat-free yogurts make up for the texture by adding gelatin (animal bones) and tons of corn syrup- ew.

I think a healthy breakfast should always start with a big glass of water, as soon as you wake up. Then, breakfast should be consumed within an hour of getting up. Your choices can include a bowl of whole grain cereal, skim milk (or low fat), nonfat yogurt or cottage cheese, always some type of fresh fruit (blueberries are great fresh or frozen), an omlett with fresh vegetables, a slice of toast, and coffee or tea (without sugar or cream). I also may make a fresh fruit/vegetable smoothie and have 6 oz of that in place of fresh fruit. You must decide what combination of foods work for you. My favorite breakfast is a bowl of whole grain flax cereal, skim milk, fruit of some sort on the cereal, maybe a small glass of a fruit/vegetable blended drink (I have a Vita Mix blender, the absolute best appliance I own), and black coffee. The carbs and protein keep me full until lunch. Most important, I always drink a big glass of water as soon as I wake up. I also drink at least eight glasses of water a day. It keeps my bowels regular, helps keep me full, and is just good for hydrating your body

My idea of any healthy meal is whole food as close to the source as possible, whole grains if I'm having grains. Every meal includes a fruit. It might include nuts, Josephs pita pocket or flat bread. It might include almond breeze or Greek Yogurt. I find I must eat yogurt every other day and I prefer to eat that at breakfast. I try for 10-15 grams of fiber at breakfast.

So my favorite healthy breakfast is:

1.25 c. Shredded Wheat n Bran cereal
2. 1 shredded apple on top
3. blackberries or blueberries or cherries or slliced banana
4. .5 c Chobani Greek Yogurt, nonfat, plain. I add teaspoon splenda and cinnamon. I raise my own stevia and in the summer, I blend the yogurt, cinnmon and a couple of stevia leaves and put it on top of the fruit.

I have some other recipes which I consider to be healthy breakfasts in my recipe collection:

I am ok with using greek yogurt in a dip in place of some of the mayo or sour cream but like I said I do not really like yogurt. Smooth food is not food to me. If it does not crunch I do not like it. I just do not care for the flavor or texture of yogurt. Plus it does not agree with my stomach as it is still a dairy product even though it does not have lactose.

CINDY-K, have you tried Greek yogurt? It has way more protein than normal yogurt. The thicknss varies by brand so try a few if the first one doesn't work for you. I like to add some granola and, if I'm having it for dessert, a few dark chocolate sprinkles to mine. You can add fruit too, but for some reason fruit creeps me out when it's in my yogurt.

Hi, I am new here. I am on a high protein food plan due to medical issues. I try to get 10-20 gr of protein in the morning. The problem is that I can not eat eggs (they just make me sick). I can handle maybe one egg a week. Most days I eat some lowfat cheese and a protein drink in addition to a little oatmeal or cottage cheese and fruit. I am not a big fan of yogurt unless I add some nuts to make it crunchy. I am lactose intolerant too, Quite a mess!

I am hoping to get some more high protein breakfast ideas from you! I divide my morning food into two parts (breakfast and am snack) between the 2 I try for a total of 350 calories with lots of protein and some healthy carbs.
I usually try to eat a little good carbs (whole grain), a little fruit

Today was protein drink and 1/2 a protein bar (in a hurry ate on the way to gym)

Friday - brown rice whole grain medly with lactose free milk, dried fruit, and roasted seeds/nuts, 1 oz lowfat cheese, and a nonfat decaf latte.

Thursday - Oatmeal with nuts and nonfat milk and cottage cheese with 3 mandarin orange segments for break.

Usually I eat oat meal with cinnamon and sometime I mix banana slices for extra flavor. Today, and since I restart the Atkins Diet I had a MIM Muffin, coffee and a whole egg.

Breakfast and Lunch are just NOT my favorite meals of the day. I have to find something that will be good and yet healthy. Is Fat Free Yogurt OK?

I try to make sure I have protein cuz it's the only thing that seems to stick with me until lunch. Since joining Sparks I also find I have a hard time getting enough Carbs & Calcium so I add 1/2 cup milk and a slice of Ezekiel sprout bread - takes some getting used to but great source of fiber and complex carbs

I'm generally with you. I always feel pretty good about it if I can limit the sugar and fat and include some protein, complex carbs, and fruit!

Coffee is always a part of mine, as well!

Everyone's definition of a healthy breakfast varies, so I was wondering what the consensus was for this club. I usually figure I'm doing pretty good if my breakfast doesn't include a pastry or other type of dessert item. I figure I'm doing better if I keep the calorie count below 500, the fat minimal, the protein about 15-20% of my daily range, and a good dose of fiber.

So what do you consider a healthy breakfast?
