LOL, I'm a one trick Breakfast pony. I either have Protein Drinks of some sort or eggs.

My current squeeze is making an Egg McMuffinless "sandwich"

I also love egg white scrambles with Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage pre-cooked crumbles, spinach, mushrooms and cheese. I also like eggbites of all kinds. Eggface has a great website for those with variations.

And I make a Peanut Butter banana green smoothie with Fiber and blueberries that I love and stays with me.

Other than that, I just grab 2oz of leftover meat from a meal or from lunch meat and some grape tomatoes and call it done.

My standby:

One packet of sugar free instant oatmeal

One Tablespoon dried cherries

Half a Tablespoon pecan pieces

Splenda till it's sweet enough for ya..lol.

Eat with a big cup of coffee with 1/3 of a caramel Premier Protein shake (ok, technically, have your coffee before or after)

Total calories....about 200 Total protein....about 15g

I have two basic breakfast ideas: one is high-protein oatmeal, to which I add a little dried cranberries; the other is an egg, usually with either bacon or sausage, and a piece of rye toast. The egg can be fried, scrambled, or an omelet--either spinach and cheese, salsa and cheese, or, well, cheese.

It's tough. Sometimes I just have hard boiled eggs and coffee. Other times, I make a great microwave scrambled eggs with a bit of cheese in it--yum!! Sometimes bacon/egg/cheese on english muffin but I'm not really sure if that is the best. the crustless egg fritattas are good. And then on weekends I usually have plain greek yogurt with granola in it.

I, too, just love the Oikos Triple Zero yogurt. I have half a tub of that with a small amount of fruit most breakfasts. Otherwise a scrambled egg, sometimes with a touch of shredded parmesan cheese. I have also had slices of apple with natural Peanut Butter. I would love to branch out with new breakfast ideas too. I've never loved oatmeal, but maybe it's time to try it again.

I've tried those before and after bypass. I can do about 2 tsp of oikos zero. To sweet for me taste buds don't know why

My go to during the week is a Siggi's skyr (like Greek yogurt, but less sweet) with granola, tbsp of Unjury, and tsp of chia seeds.
On weekends I change it up to keep me from getting bored

For breakfast I usually have 1oz of oatmeal with sugar free maple Syrup and a bit of butter. It's oh so good.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
