99.9% of my days start with the same breakfast - whole grain toast, peanut butter, orange, and a piece of cheese. This combination of protein, carbs, and fats keeps me full until lunch time.


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

I like to start with a one egg omelette with cheese and bacon and lots of vegies. Sometimes I have one slice of whole wheat toast. Other times I just have granola and almond milk with raspberries.

I eat a variety of foods for breakfast. Lately I have been enjoying oatmeal with a banana and blueberries in it. I also will have an english muffin and peanut or almond butter on it. Egg sub. and rye toast with fruit is another favorite. When I know I have to be up and out early I have made ahead some of the breakfast to go recipes from Spark recipes. That worked out very well for me.

Yes I agree. Slept better last night except for a couple of trips to the bathroom. Had a tummy upset.....and it wasn't from the metaformin, (I get some loose movements form that on occassion) but was much more watery. Thank goodness I feel better today.

I like yogurt with müsli and berries. But often I just eat a ham and cheese sandwich.
Then later at the office I eat fruit and nuts (and often some salty liquorice).

I don't like to eat the same thing every morning and I've only been a breakfast eater for about 5 years of my adult life. Breakfast is very flexible, but always includes protein. Sometimes it is healthy, sometimes not. Anything from PB or hazelnut spread on toast to a protein smoothie to an egg of some sort. I try to keep frozen homemade scones or breakfast bread in the freezer. And I make a sausage biscuit by wrapping a little smoky in a canned biscuit. I make 40 at a time, bake and freeze for those mornings when I have to be up early for work or an event. Not necessarily healthy, but meets my protein need.

I don't have any set thing for breakfast, but will often eat half a cup of cottage cheese mixed with some pineapple, plus a piece of whole wheat toast with a little jam. I have to say, I focus more on calories than on how healthy my choices are, although I do TRY to make reasonably healthy choices!

MANDE37752 -- I seem to have the same experience with sleeping; when I try to go to bed earlier I can't sleep anyway, or I wake up 10 times during the night, or I wake up at 4 a.m. and can't get back to sleep... again, I know I'm not doing it the "right" way, but getting a good 6 hours sleep seems better to me than trying for 8 and ending up with about 3 hours' worth! (But hey! at least we know we're doing it "wrong," -- right?)

I usually have a bagel thin and a boiled egg or two plus some type of fruit or yogurt. I find that I need to incorporate more fruits and veggies into my other meals and snacks though. Its funny after reading the article on sleep and going to bed at a good hour I find I had one of the worst nights sleep last night that I have had in years. I couldn't rest and kept waking up. Had several hot flashes too. Hope tonight is better, although I don't really feel well today.

I like to workout in the morning, but my mornings are a challenge. So I always like to start with a fifteen min stationary bike little ride. That way I feel successful, even when I'm not.

My breakfast is usually oatmeal with a little (LIGHT)margarine, golden raisins and walnuts + coffee, milk and a little light international creamer (1 tsp).

That's my routine and I'm stickin' to it!! emoticon

I eat Nestle Fitness cereal with low-fat milk, 10 grapes or a banana, and a cup of instant mocha. On weekends, I eat something cooked, like a one-egg omelet with shallots and tomatoes, or waffles with brown Norwegian cheese and jam. Low on the protein, but I get in the fruit/vegie and it gets me going!

My breakfast varies with my mood and what I have on hand, sometimes a skimmed milk and fruit smoothie, sometimes a whole wheat banana raisin carrot muffin, sometimes toast with fruit spread.

I usually eat a home made bran muffin and a bit of fruit. I keep the muffins in the freezer and "nuke" one each morning. It's fast, easy and fills me up.

I generally eat a WW low-fat yoghurt with whatever fruit I have and some oat bran. I imagine this does not meet the requirements exactly but at least I get the fruit and some bran.

How do you start your day? The Spark People motivational slideshow, Eight Healthy Ways to Start Your Day ( www.sparkpeople.com/resource/
slideshow
.asp?show=83
) includes the following: "You've been sleeping for seven to eight hours or more, so your body needs fuel to wake up your metabolism and help you power through your morning. Eating breakfast prevents you from overeating throughout the day, and people who eat an a.m. meal are less likely to be overweight than people who skip it.

Ideally, your breakfast should include a combination of protein, whole grains, and healthy fats. Whole-grain toast topped with peanut butter and banana, Greek yogurt with cereal and fruit, or a breakfast scramble with a whole-grain English muffin on the side are all excellent a.m. options. Check out these healthy breakfast ideas for more inspiration!"

Read through these suggestions from other SP members --
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/
nutrition
_articles.asp?id=933


Does your typical breakfast meet the "protein, whole grains and healthy fats" standard? What would your suggestion for a quick but healthy morning meal -- that you might actually eat -- be?
