Breakfast that makes you feel best?

I've heard that breakfast is the most important meal. What breakfast makes you feel best without feeling over stuffed or hungry before lunchtime even comes along? I have trouble eating a lot in the morning, so I'm wondering if there is something simple that will boost my metabolism, fill me up a little bit, and give me energy to get through the morning. Thanks!

Lovelovelove breakfast burritoes made with spicy chicken sausage, egg whites, zuchinni, roasted red pepper, mushrooms, green pepper and tomatoes. I make a whole batch of them on sunday and then just zap one in the microwave in the morning. I use the low-carb wraps from la Tortilla Factory for the low calories, high fiber and protein and 'not-floury' taste. The high fiber and protein really help me stay satisfied, but the veggies and chicken are fairly light and I don't feel sluggish.

Steelcut oatmeal from Trader Joes. It's already made in the freezer section. Just heat and add some cranberries and walnuts. VERY filling, lots of fiber and of course healthy for you!

None I have never been a breakfast person. Yet I do eat breakfast. I understand it helps you lose better.
So I have a dutch chocolate slim fast bar or
a turkey sandwich
Or wheat toast with an egg and ham
Nothing makes me feel good though. Just more sleep.

Scrambled eggs, pineapple, and coffee. Supposedly eggs everyday isn't great for you, but I can't eat carbs for breakfast. I get hungry an hour later. Eggs stick to the ribs and give me the fortitude to say no to the office birthday cake!

Try something that is high in fiber, like stated oatmeal, whole wheat bread/bagels. It does not have to be a lot to fill you up, just find something that will taste good and is healthy, or you will dread breakfast even more.

I psted this somewhere else but you should have a mix of a complex carb, a healthy fat and protein. If you are missing any of these you will not be full as long nor will you get the nutrients you need.

Kinda weird but this morning I mixed:

f/f all nat yogurt (it has no sugar)
splenda, vanilla, dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
2 tbs of flax
.5 c of old fashion oatmeal dry
1 tsp of unsweetened coconut flakes

I also take a fiber pill, cla, multi in the morning

I am never hungry before lunch

I second the breakfast 9:45
Years ago I used to eat just a tiny breakfast and work all day and have a descent dinner when I came home. I wanted something that would hold me a good 6 hours or so.
This is what a health conscious friend suggested

1/4 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
2 Tbls chopped cashews
1 Tbls flax seed oil.

It tasted ok. The flax messes with it. But it was healthy and kept me going all day.

A piece of whole wheat toast with a poached egg on the top. Add a sprinkle of Asiago cheese or Chalula hot sauce.
Fresh tomato slices on the side.

Every day at work I have a pack of Quaker lower sugar oatmeal (fruit and cream variety is my favorite) with a packet of milled flax seed mixed in. It just makes it taste kind of nutty. And a banana on the side. I have that about 8:30am and am good to go until lunch at Noon.

Protein, without a doubt. I used to eat oatmeal with dried fruit in it but I'd be hungry by 10:00. Now I eat a poached egg or a morningstar veggie patty with my breakfast and I'm good until 12 or 1:00.

I HATE eating breakfast.

I make myself a protein shake for breakfast.

1 scoop of Vanilla Protein powder
1 cup of skim milk
1 small banana
4 large strawberries

I find that I stay pretty full with this.

I never want anything other than a huge bowl of cereal with lots of cold milk. Anything else just sounds too much.

I can never do much breakfast. I have quick-blanched brocoli with a little sesame oil and thai hot sauce. It's delicious!

I find mixtures of the following to be very satisfying::
light fruit flavored yogurt
2 or 3 tbsp cottage cheese
1/3 cup lowfat granola w/raisins

sometimes I skip the granola and add 1/2 banana or 1/3 c pineapple tidbits
