  • I too, enjoy the plain greek yogurt, however I use honey and Kashi granola cereal. I eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for breakfast or for dinner with milk, a childhood memory. I've recently discovered the breakfast veggie quiche and will again try the BLT with turkey bacon! I had been looking for a breakfast to sustain me as my worst snacking period is between breakfast and lunch! Yeah and thanx!
  • crustless quiche. 6 serving recipe does me 4 servings, 4 days. Alternatively better breakfast casserole. Occasionally soup, e.g. borscht or 5 ingredient soup, with 3 or 4 meatballs to up the protein. These heat up while I'm drinking my coffee and reading. Reading probably stops me getting hungry, as it makes me eat my meals slowly!!
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1 slice 50 calorie bread and a medium banana. cup of skim milk and lets not forget Lots of coffee.
  • I enjoy my homemade muesli (rolled oats, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, wheat germ, flax seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and from time to time I add fresh berries or some other dried fruit with cold, unsweetened almond milk). The unsweetened version is enough for me with all the fruit. I add a tiny bit of brown sugar for my little one.

    My other fave is the quick crustless quiche i make. I use egg beaters with 2% cheese, veges, 1-2 tbsp of flour, pepper and just a little salt. I eat a couple slices with some chunky pasta sauce or salsa.
  • I love breakfast ... except a lot of the breakfast ideas on SparkPeople are like 200 - 300 calories max. The thing with me ... I need a whole lot more calories to stay full till lunch time. I need almost 600 calories for breakfast. Breakfast: Steel Cut Oatmeal w/ Agave and 1/2 c blue berries/Chobani Greek Yogurt Vanilla 6oz-8oz/ 1/2 Grapefruit/ 1oz of Almonds (24 almonds). Of course ... I need to alot almost an hour to eating it, so on days when I wake up late ... my whole meal schedule is messed up and I don't get in the needed calories :(

    But I'm thinking of switching to Cardio in the morning because exercising in the evening is killing my mornings. So starting Monday ... we will see if this new plan works!
  • Breakfast Parfait:

    .5 c Kashi GoLean twigs/soy grahams/puffs (240 mg potassium, 6.5 g protein, 70 cal) OR .25 c Bear Naked Protein Granola (6 g protein, 140 cal)

    .5 c fresh blueberries (about 40 cal)

    1 3.5-oz (kid size) Chobani Champions Very Berry yogurt (100 cal)

    Layer or just mix it all up.
    Total:
    210 cal if made with Kashi cereal
    280 cal if made with Bear Naked granola cereal
  • Hippie granola (I use honey/maple instead of the sugar), bio-yogurt, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1 tbs chia seeds. So yummy to start the day this way.

    Another breakfast staple
    oats or oatbran with apple, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg

    Smoothie
    2 madjool dates
    1 frozen banana
    Organic milk/almond milk
    1 plain bio yogurt
    It is so sweet you don't need to add any other sweetness.
    Eggs
    scrambled egg with either tomatoes and other chopped veg (sort of spanish style) or with freshly squeezed orange juice and a drop of heavy cream.

    Egg muffins
    Favorite veg combo
    eggs
    milk/cream/almond milk/coconut cream
    1 tbs chia seeds or oat bran
    Mix everything together and bake in muffin tops.
    Give to kids for school snacks.
    I make a batch one day in the week and lave the muffin tops in the fridge for grab and go.

    I aim for 500 cal breakfasts to start my day.
  • *I LOVE cooked Oats~steamed & mashed Green Apples~Cinnamon & Skim Milk*
  • great ideas from all! Try single serve Okios greek FF yogurt w/ fruit on the bottom, 100% whole wheat toast, 1 tbs smart balance butter, 10-12 almonds. Powerful punch to start the day on the run.
    More power for the day!

  • I love oatmeal!
    1.
    1/2 cup of oldfashion oats
    1 cup of Light Vanilla soy Milk
    1/4 tsp Vanilla
    1 Small Banana

    2.
    1/2 cup oldfashion oats
    1 cup of water
    1/4 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tbsp peanut butter
    1 Banana
  • I toast a Thomas' English Muffin - 100 calorie kind, spread peanut or almond butter on it, and and slice 1/2 banana, yum!!! - Thanks to everyone for all of the yummy and healthy breakfast ideas!!!
  • We enjoy Thomas cinnamon raisin english muffin with one tablespoon of whipped philly cream cheese and small banana. It comes out to 274 calories. Sometimes I replace the banana with a cup of milk. :)
  • Quinoa is also a good substitute for oatmeal-- and tons of protein, too! I like to mix in berries, nuts, and give it a splash of soymilk. Sometimes I'll have it with agave nectar and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom), that's good too!
  • Oh, I forgot -- beat up one egg with some leftover rice. Add mixed veggies, cook in nonstick skillet.
  • 2 eggs, a pinch of real bacon bits, a tablespoon of shred cheese -- beat well, microwave 1 1/2 minutes, stir, microwave 1 minute, done. Eat with toast, bagel, tortilla, whatever.

    I refuse to use any artificial sweeteners (=Frankenfood) of any kind, so I use a SMALL amount of honey, molasses, or brown sugar if I make oatmeal or Malt o Meal--just enough to taste.
