Before I joined Spark, I was not a good breakfast eater. Very rarely in fact. Would work out every morning on an empty stomach. I know, horrible! Now, I eat breakfast each day and my workout is much better and I am not starving when I get home. I usually eat cereal with skim milk or a cup of oatmeal. The fiber is very filling and lasts a long time. Sometimes I add a banana on the way and always drink some hot tea or water for hydration. That is filling too!
I'm new to SparkPeople but love it already. I'm also starting to eat breakfast, even if it's not till 10 am! As a diabetic, I recently discovered cinnamon helps regulate blood glucose, so I eat either yogurt (unflavored) with added fresh blueberries (antioxidents) or low sugar oatmeal with at least 1 T cinnamon. Yummy , filling, and good for me. THANKS for this website!
I am hooked on oatmeal and a banana on the side for breakfast. It is very filling! Now I just need help with lunch

I have a multi grain english muffin with 2 turkey sausage links each cut in half and one scrambled egg. only 270 calories, with 22g of protein and 8g fiber.

Every morning I take 1 banana, 1 teaspoon of Honey and plain instant oatmeal, place in bowl, place bowl in microwave for 3 or 4 minutes. Keeps me FULL for 3 to 4 hours. The banana will melt giving the oatmeal a banana flavor. Yum
I love breakfast & have been eating oatmeal, Cheerios and Uncle Sam cereal for several years now. I believe its really made a difference in my overall health. I just wanted to add that Uncle Sam cereal is high in dietary fiber (10g) with less than 1 gram of sugar, lots of whole wheat & flaxseed. It also stays crispy in milk!!! Check out Wikipedia...

I am new to Spark and I am happy to say that I have lost 5 lbs. since I joined a few weeks ago. Thank you for all of the really great breakfast ideas. I was sitting here wondering what I would eat this week for breakfast and I'm going to try a few of these.
How about yogurt with fresh fruit and a little granola on top!

I love the yogart with fresh berries, and the oatmeal, but I add a tsp of peanut butter to my oatmeal.....some people thinks this sounds horrible, try it you might like it. Gives you that bit of energy for the morning

Yogurt with fresh berries is one of my favorite quick breakfasts. It takes no time to prepare or eat and tastes great. Plus it is something that can be customized to fit every one's taste...

What about a bowl of oatmeal as well for breakfast................ lots of fiber and very delicious. It's quick and easy to microwave.
