  • i buy the huge tub of ralston quick cooking oats, and i use a half cup of oats with 1.5 cups water as the base. in my microwave, 2:20 is the perfect time to boil the oatmeal, but leave some hot water to mix in the protein after cooking.

    This week it's two waffles toasted with 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter spread between them. Then I slice up a banana to put on top and drizzle sugar free syrup over it all. It's a little high in calories, but I only usually eat 3 meals a day.

    One full egg
    Two egg whites

    I add fresh herbs and sometimes basil pesto... YUM

    I also top with diced tomatoes or bruchetta...

    Another good and easy one is
    Two Egg Whites
    1 Slice of Cheese
    1 Slice of Turkey Bacon
    1 low fat English muffin - toasted

    It is pretty good!

    My standard breakfasts:

    1. A slice of real bread (from the bakery - mine makes whole-wheat sourdough, German-style rye or rustic French bread, which I like) or an English muffin, toasted if it's older than a day or so, with one of these: cottage cheese (with ground black pepper and maybe a tomato on the side), hummus, peanut butter, a sliced hard-boiled egg.
    2. Oatmeal made with half water, half milk with frozen blueberries stirred in while cooking.
    3. Greek yogurt (2% Fage Total plain, 0% Chobani strawberry or blueberry or black cherry) covered with applesauce, a teaspoon of cinnamon and a tablespoon of wheat germs.

    I aim for a good portion of protein in my breakfast and altogether maybe 350 calories, give or take.

    I like to do egg/egg whites for breakfast.

    This week I have been doing either hard boiled eggs. Or I do one egg scrambled (in the microwave -- I am not quick in the mornings, so I actually make and eat my breakfast at work), pre-cooked turkey bacon, a 50 cal whole wheat tortilla and a wedge of laughing cow cheese. My own little low-cal breakfast taco.

    A couple weeks ago I was set on the egg white scramble. Just did two egg whites in a tupperware in the microwave for 45 seconds, added a Morningstar Farms veggie sausage patty (crumbled) and Laughing Cow Cheese. Also yummy.

    I tried the steel cut oats, and something tasted funny about them. Now I think that I just needed some more flavor. I made Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats(which only take 4 minutes longer than the Quick Oats). I cut apples into it before I started cooking it. Then I added just a little chopped walnuts, some brown sugar and cream. Yes, cream. I measured everything, making sure it was under 400 calories. I think it ended up being around 350. Normally I have a snack before lunch, and that day I made it all the way to lunch without snacking.

    I try to change my breakfasts up to keep from getting boring. Here is one that is never boring for me, but it costs too much to eat everyday: Deep Chocolate Vitamuffin top with 1 Tb peanut butter, and half a banana. With half a glass of milk, I think that is around 300-350 calories.

    Or I eat an egg on toast with milk. Sometimes with butter, sometimes not.

    Or a smoothie. The more banana you use the sweeter it will be, and you might not need extra sweetener. I usually use banana, berries, milk, and ocassionally I add a little Meijer's Organic French vanilla creamer.

    Sometimes I do peanut butter, banana milk and cocopowder, frozen bananas of course.

    Or, frozen fruit and orange juice, but usually I like it with milk.
  • my favorite is a breakfast burrito

    3 egg whites with 1/2 tsp southwest seasoning (mrs.dash)- scrambled in microwave
    94% fat free whole wheat tortilla (70 cal) heated 30 seconds in microwave
    2 tbls fat free cheddar
    1/4 cup fat free refried bean-heated
    2 tbls chunky salsa

    spread beans all over tortilla, layer egg whites, cheese and salsa in the middle, roll and enjoy. I make this for my fiance and he loves it (his is 2 whole eggs instead of whites and more cheese)

    with fat free cheese its under 200 calories, with light its around 220

    frozen waffles with strawberry cream cheese - by far the easiest thing to do...plus, you can take it to go!

    yummmmmmmmmm, i'll have to try this. :)

    My every-morning breakfast is a smoothie. Every Sunday, I do the shopping and get all the fruit ready to go for the week, then bag it and freeze it. The fruit in my smoothie varies every day... 1/2 c strawb and 1 kiwi, 1/2 c blueb and an apple, 1/2 c straw and 1/2 c raspb...

    In the blender, I put 4oz. light minute maid juice, 1 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 c frozen baby spinach leaves, and the fruit. Blend it up and go. I also have a hard boiled egg white for more protein. yummm

    Here's a new breakfast I've been eating...I can make it while I get ready for work.

    Lunch meat (usually use turkey)
    Egg or Egg Substitute
    Cheese (optional)

    I scramble my eggs and add the salsa and cheese, then for each egg I put a slice or two of lunch meat in a muffin pan. Spray the pan with Nonstick cooking spray first. Then I add the egg to about 3/4 full.

    I bake on 350 for about 15 minutes or until egg is done. I like when the edges of the lunch meat get crispy.
