  • This was a pretty good article until they blasted eggs toward the end. If you eat only the white, you are missing out on so much of the egg that is good for you! Only a very few people - those with both high cholesterol and low triglycerides should have any problem at all with one or two eggs a day. 3.5 gm of the 5 gm of fat in an egg are unsaturated. Some studies have shown that levels of HDL, the "good" blood cholesterol, increased when subjects ate egg-supplemented diets. Eggs are good for your eyes and other parts of you, too. Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids (pigments in plant and animal foods) that have been shown to protect against macular degeneration, a serious age-related eye disease. Both lutein and zeaxanthin are found in egg yolks. According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, because of the egg yolk's fats, the carotenoids in egg yolks are better absorbed than those from plant sources, such as carrots and spinach. Egg yolks are also one of the few foods that naturally contain vitamin D which enhances the work that calcium does to keep our bones strong. Eggs, especially yolks, also contribute folate, which helps prevent birth defects in infants and heart disease in older adults. This info and more: http://www.eggs.ab.ca/about/eggnutrition.h

    my favorite breakfast is putting oatmeal in either my coffee or hot cocoa and then just sipping the liquid and then having the oatmeal last. its like there's a surprise at the end!!
  • My mother always said starting your day without breakfast is like trying to run your car without gas! She was right.

    I have found that steel cut oatmeal and a piece of fruit will stick with me easily until lunch. Cheerios are good, but the satiety isn't as high. Also, if you are used to 'fast food' breakfasts, you can try:

    100 calorie English Muffin (high fiber)
    1 egg white cooked or better n' eggs - pan fry
    1 slice of Canadian bacon (warmed) or 2 slices of Oscar Meyer Deli Meat
    melt sliced Laughing Cow Gouda atop the egg or 1 tbl shredded parmesan cheese

    voila .. .a low calorie MacSandwich .. I add a slice of tomato or some roasted red bell pepper YUM.

    My breakfast every day always has my morning smoothie. Gives me my fruit serving for the day! ( I have a hard time eating fruit, particuarly fruits like strawberries, and peaches, and anything that can almost seem slimmy from all the juicyness) So a morning fruit blend smoothie is great.

  • My regular breakfast is Fage 0% Greek Yogurt (20 g of protein per serving!), fresh or frozen blueberries, and a little honey. It's delicious and keeps me satisfied all morning.
  • Where would I be without Carnation Instant Breakfast? Its the great basis for the perfect fruit smoothie! I add in frozen berries, banana, yogurt and milk and blend. Easy to eat quickly or to take in the car with me.

    Lately I've been having 3 scrambled egg whites wraped in a whole wheat flat bread wrap with laughing cow cheese spread and salsa. My version of Mc Donalds breakfast burito.
    I found these really good wraps called Flat Out, only 90 cals 9 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein and they come in different flavors like italian herb and roasted tomato. Delicious.

    A bowl of homemade oatmeal, for protein and fiber, cooked on the stove, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil, for the thyroid, 1 tablespoon ground flax seed for the heart, 1 tablespoon dried cranberries and instead of milk, sometimes I add cottage cheese or vanilla yogurt for calcium. Great way to start the day.
    A fritata made with coconut oil, oatmeal, egg white, cinnamon, sliced apples and topped with a couple tablespoons of organic maple syrup
    or egg, bacon and ancient grain toast, topped with 1 tbs. coconut oil and sliced pineapple,
    or ancient grain or flax bread toasted topped with, 1 tbs. coconut oil and 1/2 cup cottage cheese and some fruit.,
    or a protein shake with fresh fruit, coconut oil and ground flax seed.
    I add the coconut oil and avoid soy milk and soy products as I have hypothyroidism.

    I love the SouthBeach Diet protein pancakes. My son used to make them years ago when he was into competitive bodybuilding. I think the recipe is basically the same. They are delicious and sooo filling and good for you too!

    The majority of mornings I scrape a 6-oz carton of non-fat vanilla yogurt into a bowl and pour in a half cup of Fiber One cereal or another high fiber cereal. Eat up and go. If I need something a little different , I peel a banana and spread a half teaspoon of crunchy peanut butter on it for each bite. For a vitamin chaser I drink a cup of 8th Continent light vanilla soy milk. Ya gotta luv it!!!

  • I have two breakfast favorites that I alternate. 1) soy yogurt mixed with fruit (usually frozen berries thawed in microwave first) 3 Tbsp. flax seed meal, and high fiber cereal. You can either mix it and eat it while the cereal is still crunchy, or let it sit over night and it turns into a kind of cobbler consistency. It's really good! 2) Vegan breakfast sandwich made with either whole grain bread or whole wheat english muffin toasted, Gardenburger breakfast sausage patty, a vegan soy cheese single and a touch of Nasoya nayonaisse - mmmm delish!! These veggie sausages taste better than even the meat variety and are much lower in fat and calories!
