Breakfast!



Recommended Posts

What do you guys eat for Breakfast on a good day?

When do you eat it?

I usually eat an egg (boiled or scrambled), some turkey sausage or bacon, and diced fruit. However, I always seem to get hungry sooner after Breakfast than my other meals.

Ideally, I wanna up my lean solid Protein 'cause it's supposed to keep me full longer.

A little while before I eat, I usually have a 16 oz cup of green tea with some splenda.

I usually have a poached egg on 1 slice of wholemeal toast - sometimes I add a slice of ham or smoked salmon. I also notice that lately this isn't keeping me full for as long as it used to so it may be time for a fill. I do do better with the egg though than if I eat oats or weetbix. My alternative breakfast is natural (untoasted) muesli with greek yogurt.

Tasty! Hah, weetbix, you MUST be Australian... they don't sell those here except in specialty stores. I might try the muesli thing... I haven't been able to do crunchy as of late 'cause I got a crown and it was tender.

I guess a lot of folks do Protein shakes... I made one this morning using my morning coffee and it took off about an hour or two of hunger before Breakfast and gave a lot of what I needed for the day.

Brit by birth, South African for a long time and now living in Aus! Weet(a)bix has been a common breakfast food in all those countries.

I eat oatmeal made with skim milk or 1/2 of a whole wheat English muffin with 1 tsp of Peanut Butter and sugar-free strawberry jam. Sometimes i have 1 scrambled egg made with milk and low fat chedder cheese.

I don't eat breakfast usually (eating anything too early makes me nauseous). My first meal is usually around noon and it's a Protein Shake. But every now and again I have 1 egg that I crack in a coffee cup that I spray with non stick spray. I microwave it and that's that. I don't have any enthusiasm for morning meals (but on the contrary, I'm passionate about my dinners and cooking and creating new flavors and dishes is a huge part of my life). So if I eat in the morning, it's pretty blah.

If I eat breakfast its like you say I am hungrier soon after, but if I just drink coffee and put off eating until 1 or 2 I can eat a small lunch and then eat dinner again a few hours later and be done. If I start with anything even something small in the AM I end up wanting a morning snack, an earlier lunch I just fall back into old habits.

I have a half a cup of quick oats, with 1/4 cup skim milk and 2 table spoons of spelnda blend brown sugar added in. that usually last me a good 3-4 hours, which is lunch. If I know that lunch will be farther away, I will add a piece of sara lee 45 calorie multi grain toast with some sugar free jam, or a banana (but banana usually uses up a lot of my sugar allotment for the day.)

I had always eaten breakfast before I left for work around 6:30am well just cause thats what you do. Lately I have been making a lite version of quiche on weekends so it's breakfast for the week.. this way I can throw a slice of it in a container and take it with me to work and eat it around 8am or 9am when I am actually hungry

4 slices of turkey bacon, handful of cherry tomatoes, and a tblspoon of kraft mayo with olive oil. You may not be staying full because your body needs that fat factor to signal fullness. Just a little though. As a doctor explained to me that the dueodenum needs fat to signal the stomach that it is full. Adding a little fat to your diet in the morning can make a big difference in how hungry you get later on.

Most mornings I have steelcut oatmeal that I made overnight in my crockpot.

In the morning I add 1 tbspn powdered milk or f/f evap milk or f/f half&half. 1/4 of a HUGE apple, chopped. Generous amount of cinnamon. Sometimes I'll add 1 Tbspn of chopped walnuts. Splenda or Stevia to taste. (I use bob's redmill steelcut oats which has 170 calories per 1/4 cup dry = 1 cup cooked & 7 grams of protein).

I also have 1 Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage link. (40 calories and 4 grams of protein).

Steelcut oatmeal (aka Irish Oatmeal) is a good Breakfast choice because even though it is higher in carbs, the less processing of the oats makes them lower glycemic. Meaning that they do not spike your blood sugar as much as other versions, therefore you stay fuller longer.

Give it a try. To make it overnight in your crockpot is really easy.

you need a bowl that will fit inside of your large crockpot. I have some bowls that look like oversize coffee cups, they hold about 2 cups in volume. Perfect as this leaves room for the chopped apples.

Spray smaller mug/bowl with Pam type cooking spray (not mandatory, but tends to make cleanup easier). Measure 1/4 cup oatmeal into mug. Add 1 cup Water. Place mug or bowl into large crockpot. Put lid on, turn crockpot on low and go to bed.

In the morning turn off the crockpot and remove lid and let bowl cool while you take Vitamins. When you can handle the bowl, remove and add whatever sounds good to you. suggestions: chopped apples, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, chopped walnuts (measure these, they are high calorie), dash salt, sweetner as desired. I'm going to try DaVinci s/f pancake Syrup on Monday along with my apples.

Enjoy.

Protein shake for me! I add extra Protein Powder, usually 1/3 banana, 1/2c raspberries, 2t almond butter, cinnamon, vanilla, ice and water... easy and can take on the go! I can go 5 hours with out ever feeling hungry. BUT I enjoy a nice Breakfast for dinner sometimes :)

I can't eat much for breakfast because i'm so tight in the mornings. When I'm working I have carnation instant breakfast. If I have an actually breakfast I can maybe have 2 pieces of bacon and 1 scrambled egg and I have to eat it very slowly and that's after I've been up for a couple of hours.
