Need breakfast ideas, sick of eggs and protein shakes



Recommended Posts

I recently found a blog where the author writes about what she eats each day. It seems pretty diverse. I've been ferreting away ideas for post-surgery:

yes, Eggface is legendary. She is always a good choice.

My Breakfast this morning was about 3 oz. of Chinese beef with broccoli. It was damn tasty!

I'm still not tired of Protein Shakes. I like to drink my breakfast. Later in the morning I like my Greek yogurt mixed w/either chopped pecans or Bear Naked Protein granola. I sometimes make mini quiches - my favorite has onions, peppers, chopped ham and cheddar. As someone mentioned, non-traditional foods for breakfast are good and interesting. I've had my chili when I wanted something more substantial. :-)

Low fat ham and string cheese rollups

Soy Latte with a scoop of vanilla Protein Powder (make sure it cool enough to not clump the Protein powder)

Sppppp... if you make the banana egg pancakes spread Peanut Butter on them! Also, add garlic, and cold butter prior to cooking the carb quick biscuits. Yum!

OK, I tried the Protein powder pancakes today and it was good!

1 scoop flavored Protein Powder (I used Syntrax Matrix Milk Chocolate)

2 eggs

1/4 cup blueberries

Blend until smooth. Cook on medium heat. I made two cakes (two servings). It fills you up. They were a little thin but they puff up with cooking. Be careful not to burn them. The second one I filled with 2 tablespoons of ricotta cheese and 2 tablespoons of my berry Syrup (recipe below) and rolled it up.

One pancake per MFP:

Calories: 141 Protein: 18 Carbs: 4 Fat: 6 Fiber: 1 Sugar: 3

Berry Syrup

1 cup frozen mixed berries (or any single berry is fine)

1 cup Water

Sweetener to taste (I use liquid stevia drops).

In a saucepan, bring the berries and Water to a boil until reduced. Blend with an immersion blender until smooth. Add the sweeteneer (start with 1 tsp sugar equivalent) a little at a time until it is sweet enough to your liking. Store in the refrigerator up to a week. Makes 8 servings.

Per serving per MFP:

Calories: 9 Protein: 0 Carbs: 2 Fat: 0 Fiber: 0 Sugar: 1

I really need some Breakfast ideas. I am low carb so i don't do Cereal. I can't eat eggs every day and I do Protein shakes 3-4 times a week since it is easy. Yogurt is a common breakfast, too.

Ideas, people?

I do Atkins day break oatmeal cinnamon baked squares.not every day. I do couple days a shake. Maybe egg in microwave then Atkins oatmeal square. They also have a blueberry one with almonds. Yum..

The SOuth Beach diet suggests egg white muffins. You put egg whites into a muffin pan, mix in veggies, fat free cheese, etc. Bake and there you have it! They freeze well and can be microwaved. I also eat a serving of nuts or Weight Watchers string cheese in the morning. Whatever travels well.

Breakfast doesn't always have to be breakfast.. Try small portions of anything you like and can tolerate.

Thank you for putting all the ideas together! I am tired of egg whites... but when i dont have them, i kind of miss them... so weird... on the weekends i tend to be "fly by the seat of my pants & have left over dinner for breakfast" during the week, i am pretty much the same thing, 1 eeg white, and hour later 1/2 apple or some yogurt - thank you for all the ideas!!
