  • I eat oatmeal with banana and peanut butter every day and I'm not bored yet.
  • WAUKEE1
    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.
  • 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!
