  • 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. - 11/28/2008 9:09:40 AM
  • 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. - 9/19/2008 2:47:15 PM
  • Great ideas for breakfasts! No excuses now! - 9/19/2008 12:41:28 PM
  • 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!! - 8/9/2008 2:33:16 PM
  • 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 sweeten....so fast and healthy! - 6/8/2008 11:30:23 AM
  • 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! - 4/15/2008 11:19:02 AM
  • 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! - 3/26/2008 8:14:11 PM
  • I love oatmeal with diced apple and cinnamon. That way I get a sweet treat and breakfast all rolled into one. - 3/26/2008 5:30:43 PM

    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. - 3/26/2008 9:36:39 AM
  • 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... - 3/1/2008 12:10:31 AM
  • 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. - 1/9/2008 9:11:44 AM
