I like 1 cup of cottage cheese and grapes. or 1/2 cup cottage cheese and packet of grits or fruit smoothie with rapsberries, blueberries, blackberries, throw a scoop of protein poweder and water or vanilla yogurt, fruit (i.e. strawberry, blueberries), top with kashi cereal (tastes like McD's version but at home). :)

i tell them they are very rich! i mean no one should be eating cookies en masse anyway :P i make healthy treats quite often and take those in too :)
I haven't- I do breakfast burritos with leftovers of my refried bean recipe, though- I use half a serving plus one egg (and one white). In our house we commonly will do 1 whole egg + 1 white [sometimes I save the yolks and make choc chip egg yolk cookies... for other people!].
So many good breakfast ideas. I'm not really a fan of breakfast so eating nontraditional foods is the answer. I LOVE spreading avocado on toast, wow that's so good but I'm going to try the Laughing Cow cheese wedge as well, sounds good with about 100 fewer calories. I'm only going to use one egg scrambled with veggies. I cook the egg in the microwave so I don't have to add any fat. The breakfast burrito idea is great too. Has anyone tried the canned black beans with jalapeños? Going to jot down a couple of these ideas. Thanks!

My typical breakfast is a protein shake, but on a more 'indulgent' day/when I have time and want something hot, I toast up a 100 calorie whole wheat bun, top with one egg (over easy- yolk still runny), and either 1 morningstar spicy sausage or 2 slices of morningstar bacon. I top mine with 1 T of pure maple syrup. SO good. I also do the cold oatmeal thing- mix together greek yogurt, oatmeal, vanilla, cinnamon, a little brown sugar, and the fruit of your choosing the night before. Ready to go in the morning!
if you scramble your eggs, you can add peppers, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, or basically any veggie you can chop up and toss in and that's going to add bulk and flavor. cook the scramble in a little bit of olive oil and it should be filling and you can skip the avocado. if you need something watery, have a salad. just because cereal companies decided to push their products on you as THE breakfast food doesn't mean you have to eat them. sandwiches, soups, and stews are all great breakfast choices and if you're picking leftovers, just require reheating instead of cooking. so soup and salad or a salad and a sandwich work for breakfast as well.

I do something similar with a tortilla and a scoop of pinto beans and some salsa for a Mexican breakfast loaded with protein. Delicious.

That sounds great. I do something similar: 1 whole wheat bagel thin, toasted (110 cal) 1 wedge Laughing Cow Lite cheese wedge on ea toasted half (Chipotle flavor - 35 cal ea) 1 fired egg on top of ea half (60-70 cal ea - depending on the egg) Sprinkle w/ a touch of salt, pepper & cayenne pepper. Mmmm... LOVE the avocado, though! If I ever need to add calories, that's my go-to!

Yummy! Sometimes I'll do this exact thing but wrap it in a tortilla with some spinach and hot sauce.
I guess my recipe isn't for everybody but since I don't have a cholesterol problem it sure is a great treat for me. That said, I just about never eat eggs but I'm trying to increase my protein and other nutrients and I know eggs are great.

I only have one problem with this and that is that the Cholesterol in two eggs is more that a daily intake. My Cholesterol intake is 0 to 250 mg and two egg is over the top.
Yesterday I made 2 eggs and put them on a piece of whole wheat toast that I spread with half a ripe avocado. Yum I can't eat that all day so I need some high water content, low calorie meal ideas for when my stomach just won't stop growling.
