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.
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! FCARRICH
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!
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.

Should have been an option that said "I grab a healthy breakfast". I eat breakfast every day but don't have time every morning to cook. Sometimes I will cook a breakfast casserole (the night before) and eat on it for several days and other times, I will grab a yogurt and fruit or make a protein smoothie.

Serving size for the Now Whey Protein shake in the afoementioned post from me is the recommended 2 scoops, as suggested on the label. The entire shake or smoothie with everything added is about 370 calories and 2 grams fat with a whopping 54 grams of protein. Now's Whey powder is the best tasting (not overly sweet) plus most nutritious I've found and can be ordered through Amazon.com.

I enjoy the following protein smoothie most mornings. Otherwise, if I have time, I'll make a light version of French Toast (sub OJ for milk and add organic vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon to the egg mixture - sometimes I leave out the yolk ,but, the yolk is good for you!) The Whey smoothie keeps hunger at bay longer than most breakfast foods. The smoothie recipe is: Now Whey Protein Isolate Powder in Vanilla, add .50 small banana, .25 Tbsp sun-dried goji berries, .25 Tbsp flaxseeds, .50 Tbsp organic vanilla, .50 Tbsp Raw Agave, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp McCormick Roasted Saigon Cinnamon.
My favorite would be Steel Cut Oats made in a small crockpot overnight with 1 Tbsp. chopped pecans and 1/;2 cup vanilla soymilk. (The SP recipe contains milk, little brown sugar, raisins and stick cinnamon.) And I do love breakfast!
On days that I am working, I take either a cereal bar (Aldi's Fruit and Grain Cereal Bars come in a variety of flavors - 140 cal or Aldi's Light and Crispy Vitality Bars - 90 cals) or dry cereal in a baggie with a piece of fruit. I eat a piece of fruit every day on the way to work no matter what. I also drink a bottle of water. I stay in the range of 200-300 calories because I know I'm going to be on a more regular schedule.
On days that I am home (weekend, vacation), I eat a larger breakfast: turkey bacon, a bagel w/ cream cheese or french toast sticks, and rice and juice.

I definitely need the fuel of a breakfast each day... and always find variety with cereal, eggs, fruit, milk etc...but a tip I'd like to suggest is the vegetarian sausage patties by Morning Star. I am not vegetarian, but this is a healthy alternative to pork sausage, plus I really like the taste! Takes about one minute in the microwave and it's ready! Anyone who has experienced health concerns with cholestrol, should give this a taste-test.
