    To keep a consistent sugar level and power through a good workout, the absolute best breakfast is a serving of steel cut oats cooked in Silk vanilla light soymilk. Add a sprinkle of some nuts (walnuts, pecans, or almonds) and some fresh fruit. I usually add fresh berries or fresh diced peaches. To save time, cook more than one serving and then divide them into portions to heat up in the microwave during the week.
  • i feel this article stresses too many carbs, waffles, bran muffins, etc. the balance of protein is missing and also muffins should be made with splenda if you must have a muffin. many people are sensitive to carbs early in the day. they are best had during dinner. or if had earlier will trigger an awful carb craving all day thereby excluding protein and vegetables. please investigate this further before makin such recommendations.
    How about trying a simple veg sandwich which chutney and vegetables (cucumber , tomato, onion and potato) and if you are grilling the sandwiches you can also throw in cabbage and capsicum.

    Those are all great breakfast's but my favorite has got to be instant oatmeal with a scoop of whey and a tbsp of peanut butter and a splash of skim milk, it's oatmeal on steroids to get my day started off on the right foot.
  • Great ideas! Breakfast had gotten boring until I figured out to switch the two meals. Since lunch time is usually on the's easy to munch some dry cereal, scoop a yogurt and snag any fruit. Plus I'm always ravenous first thing in the AM and a lunch item is much more satisfying.
  • 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!
