Usually fiber-rich cereal, but sometimes a PBJ hits the spot.

I like to mix it up: 1/2 a whole wheat bagel and LF yogurt, 7 grain english muffins, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, protien shakes. Not a fan of breakfast foods like eggs, sausage, pancakes etc.

i like to sleep in AS LATE as i possibly can. i have it down to a 5 minute shower, 15 minutes getting ready, 5 minutes gathering my lunch, etc and then i'm out the door and i drink a slim fast shake on the way to work. i really like them (the taste isn't stellar, but they do) because they really DO keep me full for 4 hours!

Snickers Marathon Low Carb Bars because they've got lots of calcium and they keep my hunger away until lunch, and Dandelion herbal tea because it solves my gall bladder inflammation.

Breakfast favorites.

Vanilla low-fat or non-fat yogurt with fresh fruit (anything available, including blueberries, strawberries, peaches, raspberries, watermelon, bananas) served up in a pretty wine glass. Occasionally a sprinkle of granola on top, or maybe nutmeg.


Bowl of high fiber cereal with fruit and skimmed milk.

I also love tofu scramble and it's easy to make. Basically crumble drained firm tofu into the pan and push it around until it's cooked. Toss in whatever veggies (peppers, onions, mushrooms, cheese if you want) with whatever spices and turmeric for color (makes it yellow like eggs).

Either yogurt and fruit, or a high fiber light english muffin. I put spray butter on the muffin, or on the weekend I have Lous Rich turkey bacon and low fat or fat free cheese. That really carries me through the morning. I try to keep breakfast well under 200 calories. I miss REAL muffins (pumpkin and blueberry are my favorite) but there's really no way to work them into my day without being hungry later and having blown calories first thing in the morning!

An apple... every morning... all that good fiber helps to fill me up along with a bottle of water... I usually last several hours before I feel the need for a snack and it's easy to carry when I'm on the go!

breakfast options

I'm a big believer in breakfast. Some options for me include: Kashi Go Lean with blueberries and half a banana 1% milk and splenda. Coffee with milk. Or 1 serving Activa yoghurt w/2 slices Sprouts multigrain toast with Smart Balance butter sub. Coffee w/milk. When I have time I scramble 2 eggs in the microwave and make a sandwich w/ multigrain bread, 2 slices tomatoe, eggs, dijon mustard, coffeew/milk. Sometimes I add 1/4 avocado or 2 slices turkey bacon. I often cook up a whole package of turkey bacon and store it in ziplock in the frig so it is available for sandwiches, salads, snacks.

At the very minimum, I try to eat a banana (summertime) or oatmeal (wintertime) to start the day. I find that I"m less tired if I eat something in the morning!

Re: the poster that misses REAL muffins

the best pumkin muffins are low fat and very easy to make. All you need is a box of spiced cake mix and a medium sized can of plain pumpkin (16oz?). Just mix the two together (you might have to add a table spoon or two of water) and put into muffin pan/ cupcake cups and bake following package directions. Enjoy!

breakfast ideas...


it depends on my mood, but generally i guess the consensus is to have something than nothing at all...

plain yogurt with 1/2 spoonful of agave nectar + blueberries from the farmers market (they are the good ones, not at all like store-bought, i was amazed how much different/better they are!)

1/2 vegan or bran muffin, there's a place in my enighborhood that sells them, and i will also have a glass of nonfat milk (for protein)

oatmeal (but i rarely have time to make it!)

scrambled eggs on wheat toast (i try to use 1 egg + 1 or 2 egg whites)

multi-grain whole grain toast, sometimes with peanut butter, sometimes a bit of butter. Keeps me going for hours.

In winter I fire up the oatmeal.

Cold cereal - well, it leaves me cold first thing in the morning.

2 eggs over easy
1 piece of weight watchers whole grain toast w/no cal butter spray

about 270 calories

That's less than 270 calories! Unless you cook your eggs in butter or something.

Each egg is 80 cals, PAM is 0 cals, and a piece of normal bread is around 80-100 cals, so WW bread is maybe 80 cals (I buy light bread that's 40 cals a slice! - just plain old light Wonderbread).

So, at most, 240 cals, but more likely, closer to 200 cals.

3:28 Poster

That is good to know! I do spray the pan with Pam and the weight watchers bread is only 50 calories a slice. I thought cooking the eggs in a frying pan increased the calories so I was counting it at 110 per egg. I hope you are RIGHT as I am having a hard time getting down to 1200 per day. Trying to over-estimate rather than underestimate as much as possible.
