  • Great suggestions! To keep planning under control, I do eggs, oatmeal or cold cereal. But not just any old way, my favorite is 1 egg and whites of 3 eggs with sauteed spinach, red pepper and onion, topped with lowfat cheese and salsa and wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla! It's heaven!! My other fave is oatmeal mixed with walnuts, dried cranberries, fresh blueberries, and a little real maple syrup!
  • I enjoy breakfast and never skip a day. I have yogurt and 2 slices of low fat bread and coffee. This does it for me until lunch.
  • Great ideas! I like special K berry waffles without syrup and a glass of soy milk. I put the milk in a used water bottle and eat the waffles in the car when I am driving to work.
    Wonderful Ideas! I love to pre-boil eggs so I can pop one out in the morning, halve it, wraps the halves in a piece of slightly toasted honey oat bread and I'm ready to go. A tried and true family favorite is grapenuts and cheerios mixed together, always satisfying.
  • Some really different ideas here, I guess I'm lucky that the only schedule I have throughout the day is one created by me/us since I work from home. My breakfasts usually consist of either a high fiber cereal (any of the Fiber Ones are always in my cabinet), 1/2 cup soy milk, fruit such as a banana or apple, Plum Smart Light juice, YoPlus or Fiber One yogurt, whole grain/multi-grain toast (Sara Lee) and either fat free cream cheese with smuckers sugar free jelly/jam or naturally more peanut butter. I allow myself between 500 and 600 calories of my daily intake for a healthy breakfast that keeps me going easily until lunch.
  • I always have 1 cup of skim milk so to go with that I have cold cereal, or oatmeal or 1 scrambled egg and 2 slices of light ww toast. If I don't mix up my routine then I get bored and I skip it. I add in fruit or a fruit snack at 10 am every morning as well.
  • Great ideas for breakfasts! No excuses now!
  • Since I'm trying to increase fiber and protein, I'll toast 2 waffles (Nutrigrain, Special K.... something low-fat) or my new favorite - 2 slices Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Swirl Bread, and spread some peanut butter on them.... It's so quick & easy - I usually wrap it in a paper towel & eat in the car! I'm going to add a twist when/if I get bored & add some banana slices to the waffle / peanut butter sandwich!
    My new snack, which could also be eaten for breakfast, is an 8 oz container of Kroger's Carb Smart Vanilla Yogurt with diced fresh red sour cherries.... YUMMO!!
  • i like to combine all the oatmeal ingredients (1/2 c. oats, cinnamon, diced apple, some fresh blueberries, a sprinkle of chopped walnuts and 1/2 c. light soy milk) the night before and cover and refrigerate.....just warm in the microwave in the a.m., stir and add a little splenda or stevia to fast and healthy!
  • Swell tips! I've been having Quaker Weight Control instant oatmeal most mornings at work, along with a mini box of raisins, and was starting to get bored. Now I have several other options, and I'm actually going to eat two slices of my yet untried sprouted grain (?) bread that has been in my freezer for a month now. Thanks a bunch!
  • I prep mine the night before. A simple open faced toasted sourdough english muffin w/ Beaver sweet/hot mustard, a piece of lowfat Sargentos swiss cheese (torn into 4 squares), and a single egg fried hard using Pam cooking spray. I kick it all over MacDonalds... and find it to be a great start to the day!
  • I love oatmeal with diced apple and cinnamon. That way I get a sweet treat and breakfast all rolled into one.
    I usually have oatmeal because I'm doing Weight Watchers Core Plan, but I have been hearing a lot about the importance of eating protein for breakfast. I'm pondering a change.
  • I love breakfast again! Got some great ideas here to consider. My new fave is Trader Joe's Vanilla yogurt with fruit, a Crumpet with egg white scramble and I'm happy till lunch...
  • Great breakfast ideas. I always tend to be in a time crunch so usually grab something at the local drivethru which is loaded in fat & calories. I will definitely give these ideas a try.
