  • Some good suggeetions.
  • My favorite - banana pancakes (or waffles or mini doughnuts). You mix banana, egg and a little of baking powder and bake in pan/ waffle maker for approx 2-3 min. I get approx 10 pancakes or mini doughnuts or 3 double-waffles from this mixture., it takes about 10 min to prepare. Great breakfast
  • I like soup for breakfast too!
  • I suggest that you read my blog "Not Your Grandmother's Oatmeal" found on my Spark Page

  • Guess I am unique. I eat the same breakfast at least 5 days a week for the past 20 years unless I was travelling. I cooked old fashion oatmeal with pre-cooked ground turkey, frozen vegetables, up to 2 eggs, and maybe some tofu around 4 A.M. . Then I added green onion and hot sauce and water after cooking. This would give me enough protein and energy for at least two hours. I would eat a sandwich with ground beef and salad around 7 in the office. I would eat just oat meal if I had to workout in the gym at 4 A.M. usually in the weekends. Otherwise it would be too bloated. I would eat a high protein ground beef sandwich or full breakfast after workout. I have a sensitive stomach and avoid all dairy products, and fruit in the morning, it would interfer with my commute. I love peanut butter and banana but only in the weekend at home.

    for the past few months, I fix a breakfast smoothie. The recipe - 6 ounces coconut water, 2 cups spinach and kale, 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon, flax seed, chia seed and ground hemp about 20 ounces of filtered water. Great way to start the day!
  • I make a breakfast sandwich that I am addicted to and it's only 234 calories! I put two egg whites in a small bowl, cover and microwave for 1 minute. put it on top of a 100 calorie English muffin. Add two microwaveable Jimmy Dean turkey sausage patties which are 100 calories. That's it. Doesn't need cheese. But you could do a low fat slice if you needed it. More filling and, in my opinion, better tasting than an Egg McMuffin.
  • I've always enjoyed peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for breakfast with 2% milk and it's a wrap! It reminds me so much of home! I've also included veggies in my breakfast as well. Maybe a veggie quiche and fresh or stewed tomatoes. Who woudl have thunk it!
  • For a quick breakfast when I'm pressed for time I have my go to breakfast of Jimmy Dean D-Light Breakfast Sandwich, Turkey Sausage, egg and cheese... and a cup of coffee
  • I make oatmeal with cinnamon and truvia, add 1 Tablespoon of wheat germ, and a dollop of low fat vanilla yogurt on top. I have 1/2 of a banana and either hot green tea or coffee. I t keeps me full until lunch time
  • I eat oatmeal with banana and peanut butter every day and I'm not bored yet.

    McD Egg White Delight....250 calories and the perfect protein/carb combo. I add fruit from home for a mid morning snack and I am good to go till lunch at 1 pm.
  • Breakfast for me is usually an egg cooked in Pam, either scrambled (with cheese) or fried, a slice of whole-wheat toast, and either juice or some fruit. It's quick, not much clean-up, and gets me through the morning.
  • Smoothies take longer to make than some people suggest, since cleaning up the blender is part of the process. So instead of having a smoothie made with milk and a banana, why not just have a banana and a glass of milk? Usually I have a banana for breakfast without the milk, along with a handful of vitamins and supplements (ginko, turmeric, palmetto, ginseng, etc.). And an energy drink, which I know is non-kosher, but I enjoy it and it wakes me up. As long as I'm busy, I don't feel hungry, until I stop being busy.
  • Over time I have developed my favorite: I start with 1/4 cup of a dry mix of quick oats, milled flax seed, and cinnamon and then add a banana and a half cup of water. Zap it for 2 minutes in the microwave and it's done. I love it. It is sweet enough and does not need milk, butter or sugar. Lots of Fiber and Omega 3's.
