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 always eat breakfast. Lately I am on a green smoothie kick -- 2 cups kale, 1 scoop protein powder, 1 cup frozen fruit, 1 tbl. flax seed.

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!!

Mmmmmm....getting hungry.... emoticon

Don't expect a good day...make one!

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

Do you have breakfast every mornings? What are you typically having?

Is Breakfast part of your Rise and Shine Healthy Routine?
