What do you have for breakfast?

I generally have oatmeal for breakfast with a banana mixed keeps me full until lunch and is good for me......I realized, however, that it's not very exciting to eat the same thing day in/day out......

What do you eat for breakfast? I'm looking for ideas to spice up my morning.....

:) Oatmeal with raisins--pretty much every day, too. You could change up your add-ins to make it more interesting.

love the stuff. always choose something with higher fiber, though you may not need to. Right now I'm on a Fiber 1 kick, banana and skim milk and it keeps me full until lunch without question. Other tasty options could be rasin bran, frosted mini-wheats or derivatives of those. Though I've never tried them I hear the Kashi varities aren't bad. Switching up the fruit is also a good option, as in blueberries or strawberries instead of the banana.
Toast is also good, anything with a decent fiber count, and some peanut butter for protein. Yum

More Protein please! ...........

I was having a South Beach cereal bar, but haave recently added hardboiled eggs and an apple instead. Or Cream of wheat w/a few Hb eggs.
Also, if i do have cereal, i chose high fiber cereal but i pour the SOY milK first , then add a scoop of vanillla protien shake, mix them together, then add a serving of the cereal ;) I obviously only have a few minutes in the morning!! LOL

I love Flax-Plus frozen toaster waffles with a bit of peanut butter.

I also eat 5-Grain oatmeal (tons of flax, protein and fiber) with apples and cinnamon mixed in.

I eat vegetarian sausage patties for more protein too.

I have 3 main breakfasts:

1)Either a Thomas "Carb Consider" bagel or a Weight Watchers bagel, toasted, with a wedge of light laughing cow cheese spread on each half (total = 220 calories), or sometimes cream cheese instead of the laughing cow cheese.

2) 1 packet "Weight Control" Quaker oatmeal (160 calories) - banana bread flavor with about 5 chocolate chips added, or cinnamon flavor, either with a bunch of frozen blueberries added to the bowl after microwaving.

3) bowl of cereal with skim milk. Right now, my favorites are Fiber 1 Honey Clusters and Peanut Butter Toast Crunch. Both under 200 calories for a BIG bowl.

I tend to add 2 pieces of turkey sausage to all of those breakfasts. 2 links is 80 calories, mostly protein.

I have a couple different breakfasts too depending on how long breakfast has to hold me over. I am 'dying' in the morning, so I'd rather eat big for breakfast and light for lunch.

1. 'Healthy(er) egg McMuffin' - Orowheat Whole Wheat Muffin (130, 4g fiber), poached egg (70), 1 slice FF cheese (30), 1 slice canadian bacon (15). Total = 255 cal and uber satisfying!

2. 1 cup HN Cheerios + 1/2 cup skim milk (150) + 1 med banana (105). Total = 255. I really don't find this quite as satisfying as the sandwhich though. If breakfast only has to last a couple hours though I'll eat just the cereal.

Given the amount of sweet stuff I like on hot cereal, oatmeal does not work - it end up more like candy than oatmeal ;-)

Scottish oatmeal w/banana (or apple or pear), peanut butter, flax seeds, touch of brown sugar, vanilla soy milk. I've eaten this for 6 years, and I swear by it!

OP here....great ideas....

What is scottish oatmeal? I'm curious I've never heard of it before.

those are steel cut oats-- much heartier than the "rolled oats" (like quaker).

I think it resembles barley or brown rice in texture.

well, I have a few things I like to eat in the mornings...
toast with veggie sausage
eggs with sausage and toast
oatmeal w/raisins, and usually a slice of toast

if I were to toss my diet out the window for a day, I'd have the breakfast special at one of my favorite spots... bacon, 2 eggs, and 3 pancakes! really, it isn't too bad if I only do it once in a while.

usually I have my own egg mcmuffin: english muffin toasted with 1 slice american cheese and one serving of egg beaters scrambled inside. Very yummy and is only 210 cals. I usually add onthe side some sliced strawberries, grapes or blueberries and a cup of hot unsweetend green tea.

I eat one of three things. Either Slimfast, cereal, or oatmeal. I'm not exciting either. But they are all fast to make in the morning.

add spice to oatmeal

Instead of making your oatmeal with water, make your favorite flavored tea, and use that to make it in!
