Yes, I eat breakfast every morning. I have a couple of cups of coffee, and then go for a run. If it's a short run I run first then eat. If it's a long run, typically I will have a cup of oatmeal and a small bit of fruit, then run and eat again when I return. My post run breakfast can be a bowl of cheerios and fruit, or fruit and plain yogurt. I eat a LOT of fruit. We always have apples, bananas, and seasonal fruit available.
Great suggestions there!!! I might try soa few things...
I always have breakfast too. Usually about one hour after getting up. I like to exercise first.
My breakfast at work consist of - one fruit (I vary depending on what is available and fresh), 125 gr FF Yogurt and 1/4 Muesli (Bob Red Mill - all natural ingredients! I keep the bag and a measuring cup in my drawer). On weekends, I like to have an egg + cottage cheese or homemade waffles with fruit! Love the smoothie too!
My vice = coffee!

I love breakfast! Gotta have my 2 cups of coffee first though... I rotate my breakfasts depending on what I've got in the fridge. If I have leftover veggies and meat, I measure it out and make an omelet with 1 egg & 2 egg whites. If I have berries that need to get used up, I make a fruit parfait with some greek yogurt, the berries and some homemade granola. If I'm in a hurry, I'll have a veggie burger on an english muffin with 1 or 2 pieces of fruit. If I'm feeling lazy, I'll have a cup of lowfat cottage cheese, a piece of whole grain toast and peanut butter and a piece of fruit. Once in a great while, I'll have a bowl of cereal and a piece of fruit (with almond milk or soy milk). If I've planned a big workout session, I'll have a small breakfast first (toast & pb & a banana), then workout, followed up with a green juice/smoothie (I juice 1/2 lemon, 1/2 cucumber, 1 apple, 1 chunk fresh ginger, 2 stalks celery, 2 carrots; I put all that juice in my Ninja blender with 4 ice cubes and a generous handful of spinach and blend it all up)...so refreshing and energyzing after a long, hard workout!!
I have breakfast every morning unless I am fasting for some kind of blood work or medical reasons. I even try to eat something if i feel sick just to see where I am and to nourish the body. Breakfast for me is typically at 5:00am and consists of 1 green apple 1 other fruit 1 Tablespoon honey with cinnamon mixed in( I do this to stop my seasonal allergies from causing me issues. It does work but it takes a few months to see progress. I do it every day and for the last 2 years when everyone else is suffering due to high pollen i am just fine. So it does work but the honey must be local not bought in the store or pasteurized) 3- peanut butter protein balls and then I have some sort of low fat, sugar free, low calorie muffin or bread
