My favorite breakfast is peanutbut/granola wraps. Or pancakes with fresh fruit -- I make the pancakes or waffles on the weekend and then just rehead during the week.

My favorite breakfast lately has been a whole wheat tortilla (via our organic delivery, we recently discovered a -local- brand that is literally the softest, chewiest kind I've ever had, even straight out of the fridge!) spread with peanut or other nut/seed butter, topped with nectarine slices, and rolled up. It originally started on slices of toast, but then I ran out of toast, and it ended up being easier to eat like this.

Toast with hummus or bean dip, and avocado is good. Mashed banana with cinnamon on toast, too. ...Well, anything on toast, really, because toast is just the best!

Try savory oatmeal -- just add whatever veggies (precooked is fastest) you would normally put in a tofu scramble/omelet, and sprinkle on some nutritional yeast. You can save your added sugar allotment for a luscious dessert that way, lol.

And leftovers are always good. Breakfast doesn't have to be "breakfast."

Oatmeal is a big favorite, and easy, esp if you get the Trader Joe's frozen stuff that looks like hockey pucks. You can def put applesauce or peanut butter or dried fruit or whatever in it - oatmeal is SO good for you, too.

Peanut butter and banana in a whole-wheat wrap is so easy and yummy - and if you add sliced strawberries to it, it is supergood and juicy!

A tasty wheat toast (I just discovered one in the bakery seciton of my grocery store called a superfruit bread, tasty and crunchy, I am hooked), with some mixed fresh fruit chopped up the night before, is always good (add cottage cheese or yogurt if you eat dairy).

I strongly encourage you to eat breakfast every morning, I think it is a vey important meal.

I usually grab fresh fruit I already have cut up: Kiwi, grapes, pineapple, melon, berries, mango, and bananas. It varies depending on what I have available.

MOMOFGREMLINS,

Your breakfast sounds delicious!

I drink a big green smoothie every day. Look at Incredible Smoothies or Healthy Blender Girl online for great recipes.

I'm like STUFFNEARTABOR and usually do the same mix of 1/2 c oatmeal nuked with 1 c water. I also add 1 Tbsp flax seeds & 1 Tbsp chia seeds. Depending on my mood I create lots of different oatmeals; apple pie style (1-2 Tbsp apple sauce or 1/2 diced apple + cinnamon mixed in), carrot cake (1 grated carrot + some shredded coconut + spices), zucchini cake (1 shredded zucchini + spices), pumpkin or yam/sweet potato pie.. you get the idea!
Oh, my favorite is 1Tbsp PB and 1 dark cocoa or a few vegan choc. chips, the best treat ever and healthy breakfast in one! emoticon

If I'm out of oatmeal (I also use steelcut a lot that I cook and put in small containers already in the right portion -my Hubby likes to take 1 container to work every morning) I use either quinoa or brown rice or lately I've found to love Kasha/buckwheat!
If you mix the chia seeds in and let it sit overnight it starts being like a 'tapioca pudding' style the next morning! You just need to add some (plant) milk! emoticon

What do you all eat for breakfast? I need some fast, easy ideas. Don't have time to really cook anything, so I'm thinking smoothies?
