  • 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.

    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.

    I love high double fiber whole wheat muffin and a tablespoon of peanut butter with 4 prunes cut up on top. I'm good to go until lunch
  • I don't feel like eating very much first thing in the morning so I usually just have a soft boiled egg with half a piece of toast, 30 grams of cereal with milk or an actimel yogurt drink.

    I always cook more rice than I'm going to need and use some next morning with either dried fruit soaked overnight in skim milk or for a really different but delicious breakfast, or I like adding a bit of instant miso soup and some furikako, an asian topping that comes in various flavours and is granule-like. It comes in foil packets and you only need about a teaspoonful per cup of rice to flavour it. It makes almost a complete meal if you put some vegetables in with the rice. You can also beat an egg with a little water and fry the egg in a non-stick pan till just cooked. Roll it up and slice it very thinly then add to the rice with the furikako. Yum!

    Plenty of great ideas - no need to limit the choice to just "eggs" or "cereal".
