  • 1/2 cup fat free greek yogurt, cottage cheese or believe it or not fat free ricotta cheese with 1 tsp of any flavor fruit spread (similar to preserves but sweetened with fruit juice) with 1 tsp sliced almonds, sunflower seeds or other seed/nuts. Its quick, easy, and I find this combination satisfies me for at least 4 hours.

    Jimmy Dean's Turkey Sausage Crumbles in a scrambled Egg Beaters omelette is wonderful and doesn't feel like a sacrifice. High fiber whole wheat toast on the side and some fruit of your choosing (Dole's cubed pineapple from the plastic jar is wonderful) and you've got a complete breakfast that is an easy, fast treat.

    I've always had to eat breakfast. Not a problem. However, I eat breakfast at 6am, with my dad. I start work at 8am. By 9 or 10 (I eat healthy breakfasts: whole grain cereal or an omelette, milk, fruit) I'm starving! My breaks and lunch schedules change daily, and my job in a call center doesn't allow me to eat at my desk (other than an almond, or a small cracker between calls). Now I have milk and fruit (smoothie, just add nutmeg to milk and a banana) with my dad, then grab some wonderful Steel Cut Oatmeal with a handful of chopped walnuts from our cafeteria to start eating just before 8am, nibble on between calls, and nuke any remaining oatmeal during my break, if it's in the morning. This seems to have cut down on the hunger pangs before lunch.
    I have to agree, I struggle to eat breakfast. I have not been a big fan of eatting before 9:30 in the morning ( I just wasnt hungry) Since I started a healthy eating play I find breakfast is doable as long as I eat it first thing in the morning. I do find that when stress levels rise I try to go back to old habits where I skip the meal. The "Hungry Girl" Lisa Lillien has great idea for Egg Cups under 300 caleries and are easy to make, with minimal clean up.
  • Breakfast is a constant struggle for me. I'm one to dash out the door in the morning and eat at work, so finding something quick, easy, healthy, and can be made in the microwave and eaten between tasks can be a challenge! I love the "egg in a cup" ideas, and just tried one suggestion I loved with putting fruit in a bowl topped with oatmeal and milk for a healthy microwave "fruit cobbler" of sorts. I think I'll play around with different fruit and oatmeal combos. I normally can't stand oatmeal but want so bad to like it! This really helped. I hope to be looking forward to breakfast again! Thanks for all the great ideas!
  • Mine is pretty much the same as SWEHNER's!

    My other go-to is 2 slices of sara lee delightful bread, toast them and add 2 Tbsp almond butter, and a piece of fruit. :)

    Or half a bagel with 1 Tbsp almond/peanut butter and half a banana.
  • My go-to breakfast is similar to SWEHNER's, only I use 1/2 cup fat free or low fat cottage cheese, 1/2 banana (or other fruit, but usually banana), topped with Kashi go-lean cereal. I don't know why, but I generally don't enjoy eating cereal with milk, but cottage cheese, or sometimes yogurt, is a great way to help me stay full in the morning!
  • Love these, thank you!! I really like the yopliat smoothies, you can just throw this in the blender with some milk and your done!
  • my favorite thing for breakfast is a 1/2 cup of fat free plain Greek yogurt. I sweeten it with some splenda and add a little vanilla extract for flavor. Then I mix in 1 1/2 cups of whatever fruit I have on hand. Bananas, pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, apples. And I top it off with some Kashi go lean crunch.
  • I found a tasty recipe for oatmeal pancakes recently, and they are quite healthy (see my blog at for the recipe). I figure that three 4-inch pancakes would equal about two bread servings. Since one batch only makes 8-9 pancakes, next time I'm going to make a double-batch to have some to freeze.

    I love The Hungry Girl show, it gives you some many ways to increase your food intake without the fat and calories. The recipes have a lot of flavor and without the fat. Love it!
  • Good ideas. I eat breakfast nearly every day but I tend to eat the same thing. My own frozen waffles or pancakes is a really neat idea and would certainly be a change from my usual meal. Thanks.
  • I love breakfast. And I really don't have a favorite. Somtimes hot cereal, sometimes cold. egg whites and veggies scrambled and wrap in a tortilla. I do like their waffle idea but does any one have a home made waffle recipe. I try to stay away from box mixes. They are usually high in sodium and trans fat.
  • I have been enjoying Hungry Girl Mug breakfast's. My favorite is Southwest Eggbeaters, 1 Tbsp Reduced Fat Cheddar and 1/4 cup precooked turkey breakfast crumbles. Spray large coffee mug with Pam, add ingredients, microwave for 45 minutes, give it a stir and microwave for another 30 to 45 minutes. If I had a grueling work out the night before I will wrap it in a low carb tortilla for a few carbs. If not I eat it right out of the mug.
  • I'm a cereal kind of kid, however here are some tips for other breakfast items:
    Make a huge portion of quick cooking oatmeal, then you have plenty of leftovers to nuke the next few days.
    Also, to quickly cook an egg, spay a small coffee cup with Pam, scramble egg in cup. Nuke 30 seconds, scramble again, nuke 30 seconds and it should be ready to go! Put on whole wheat bread and you've got a quick breakfast sandwich!
