    1 light English muffin, 1 tablespoon JIF whipped peanut butter, 1 tablespoon reduced sugar grape jelly, and 1 cup 1% milk comes to 290 calories. It keeps me full for awhile. You could also do a 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon honey instead of the jelly to have it come out to 300 calories.

    I got a breakfast sandwich maker. Coolest thing ever!
    Mine are ~235 cal but I am sure with more cheese and bacon you can bump it up to 300.
    Very filling and sadisfying by the way. I am not hungry for hours!

    Does anyone have good breakfast ideas that don't include eggs? I seriously hate eggs. I'm a big breakfast eater, but I tend to not eat 'traditional' breakfast food (hate milk, eggs, gravy....). I'm a picky pants....

    I usually have 0% fat greek yogurt and some frozen berries - so delicious and keeps me full til lunch! Its 156 cals too! Would generally have a coffee of some sort between that and lunch! I'm not a big breakfast eater just need something. Bacon and eggs is good too or 2 eggs scrambled with avocado - yum!!!

    Overnight oats
    1/3 c oatmeal
    1/3 c plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
    1/3-1/2 c unsweetened almond milk
    1/2 banana
    (I add berries to mine to mix everything up and I also add a spoonful of protein powder)
    Mix together and leave in a covered container overnight in your fridge. Great to take on the go!

    I mix 1/2 c plain, non-fat Greek yogurt with 1 spoonful of my special protein powder that tastes like cake batter (Protein Plus for $20 at Sam's Club) and then cut up a banana to eat with it. This is a new favorite of mine

    Egg whites with spinach and halved cherry tomatoes. Turkey bacon/sausage on the side.

    Protein shakes

    i dont know why but im addicted to oatmeal for breakfast.
    1/2 cup oats soaked with 1 cup almond milk overnight, banana mashed in the morning and microwaved for like 4 minutes and i recently discovered adding unsweetened cocoa powder (im so late!) but i add around a tablespoon.
    cant believe that it gives such a yummy chocolate brownie effect for like 10 cals a spoon with fiber and antioxidants.. so yum.
    the reason i microwave it so long is it becomes kind of baked at the top, you know those homemade puddings when you let them sit and they solidify at the top giving you that "pudding skin" affect? yeah thats what i love and i do it with my oatmeal nomnom.
    this was unnecessarily long.

    Breakfast is definitely my favourite meal of the day, so I make it a big one!

    Once a week, usually on Sunday night, I bake some egg white muffins for the whole week. Each muffin contains:

    - 4g baby spinach
    - 20g diced leg ham
    - 1 cherry tomato chopped
    - 1 egg white whisked with a bit of pepper, chives and baking powder
    Lay each ingredient in order in a muffin tin (sprayed with cooking spray) - bake for 30 minutes at 180 C.
    Let cool for 5 minutes, transfer on a wired rack and let cool completely before storing them in sandwich bags in the fridge.
    In the morning I just heat one up for 20 seconds in the microwave.
    It comes to around 50 calories per muffin.

    Then I have oatmeal with some fruit:
    - 15g oats
    - 1tsp chia seeds
    - 1tsp flaxseed meal
    - either 120g strawberries, or 100g blueberries, or 1 chopped nectarine, or 1 grated apple
    - a sprinkle of cinnamon
    - 100ml unsweetened almond milk
    Mix everything in a bowl, microwave for 2 minutes.
    Let cool for a couple of minutes and top with greek yoghurt (I use Chobani 0%).

    It normally adds up to about 250-290 calories in total.

    I have oatmeal almost everyday. In a hurry I have Better than Oats (they even have steel cut now) or just regular old oatmeal. I've tried some of the crockpot recipes, which is handy because I then portion it out and just heat up each morning. I also like to add cottage cheese to my oatmeal...hey don't knock it until you try it. Or, applesauce, pumpkin butter (mmmmm!), PB2, berries, fruit, nuts, the list is endless. Search for oatmeal here and you'll find several topics. There's also several posts on overnight oats, which I keep meaning to do at night. I'm usually full until around 11 from it (I eat around 7).

    If you like to cook/have time to cook ahead:


    It is amazingly filling! (Plus I love sausage!) My husband and I make two casseroles on Sunday night, cut each of them into 12 even pieces, then refrigerate and freeze it, so we each get one piece with our coffee every morning. It only takes about a minute to reheat. We're going to add green bell pepper next week!

    For breakfast I almost always have Banquet Turkey Sausage links 100 calories, 2 eggs fried with two quick sprays of Pam 144 calories, and 1 slice of toasted Sara Lee light 100% whole wheat bread 45 calories. Total 289 calories.
    I put my eggs on my toast and let the yolk ooze out on to the toast, instead of butter or jelly.

    pretty much what I have :
    Half a cup of oatmeal - 169 cals
    Half a cup of unsweetened almond milk - 16 cals
    tsp agave nectar - 14 cals
    tsp stevia - 2 cals

    ^that's 201 calories, leaving 100 calories for toppings, some I like to switch up and combine :
    10 almonds = 70 cals
    small apple - 50 cals
    1 banana - 100 cals
    clementine - 30 cals
    tsp light hot chocolate powder ;) - 25 cals

    I usually combine a couple of those toppings so I get about 300-400 cals for breakfast, Sweet and filling mmm I love porridge
