    i do something similar to the beaten egg on toast idea.

    2 eggs beaten with black pepper....add a slice of ham (chopped)...nuke it for approx 1min....stir....another 30seconds or so then turn out onto a slice of low cal toast. nom nom nom

    Approx 250cal all in but if there is one thing i have learnt, it's the protein that keeps me full.

    Cereal just doesn't cut it in any form i have tried.
  • It depends. Some mornings I am not hungry enough to have "breakfast" until lunch time so I just shift my whole day a bit later, and eat my meals later on in the day. For breakfast I like to either do something simple like an egg in an english muffin, or cottage cheese with cinnamon and blueberries on top. Yogurt is a nice one as well, if I am not too hungry.

    For me, it's grab and go since I have to leave the house at the ungodly hour of 4:30am. :grumble:

    I usually have an apple, a cup of Greek yogurt and a couple of sticks of string (mozzarella) cheese. If I have time when I get to work, I may have some granola/oatmeal or one of those "bagel thin" things. Tea, or coffee, depending on my mood.

    If I could work out early in the morning, I would rather, but my gym isn't open at 4:30am. (They should be!!!)

    1/2 Whole wheat mini bagel with PB , cream cheese or light margarine and cherry Berry Jam. Depends on my mood. This is usually before my workout. A little bit later greek plain yogurt, blackberries with some crushed almonds on top. I eat about 6 x's daily smaller meals.

    I usually have greek yogurt. Then I'll have a protein/fiber bar at about 10am.

    Work days, it's one of:
    Bacon / Black pudding and scrambled eggs
    Cooked meat and mayonnaise
    Boiled eggs and mayonnaise

    Weekends, I tend to merge breakfast and lunch into a big plate of sausages and eggs (with veg, sometimes!)

    I'm not a huge fan of cereal...

    What do you usually have for breakfast? I never had breakfast before, just a cup of coffee and maybe a sandwich sometimes. I want to have a healthy and nutritious breakfast that will keep me energized throughout the day. What do you fitness buddies enjoy having for breakfast?

    Nothing, unless I'm really hungry. Then I'll make a big pot of chai. Breakfast is something I loathe.

    During the week (M-F) I eat Oatmeal made with water, a little sugar, cinnamon & raisins and of course my coffee with Sugar Free Creamer and a little sugar - easy to prep the butter, sugar, cinnamon & raisins at home and fix at work!

    On the weekends my favorite is scrambled egg whites with a little shredded cheese, a slice of whole wheat toast with a little butter on it.

    Both keep me full until lunch time!

    I have the same thing every morning, or nearly. 1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt (plain), 1/2 cup mixed berries, 30g Puffins cereal. Sometimes I drizzle it with honey, sometimes not. Keeps me full till lunch most days.

    Weekend mornings I might make pancakes, or frozen waffles. Occasionally turkey bacon.

    ETA that sometimes, when the craving for an Egg Mcmuffin hits me, I toast one half of an English muffin and put 1/2 slice of American cheese on it, and then a hard-poached egg (slash the yolk while it's cooking and it's just like McD's). Delicious.

    i usually have the same breakfast for like a week at a time. this week it is one hard boiled egg (80 calories) and one mild cheddar cheese stick (80) calories.

    Sometimes its a light & fit greek yogurt (80 calories) and a string cheese (50 calories)

    Sometimes its coffee only.

    These have all become my go to's because I have to be at work early. So I grab and go. And eat at work.
  • Every morning I have Alpen porridge ( fruit and nut) and skimmed milk.
    Creature of habit, besides it fills me up and I enjoy it.
    It's also good for anyone with a cholesterol problem ( I dont, just dont want one :-) )

    I do a green smoothie - four cups kale or spinach, two cups unsweetened almond milk, one cup frozen fruit (I like to use berries or mango). Sometimes I throw a banana in for thickness. It's delicious, full of nutrients, and keeps me full till lunch. Plus it only takes 30 seconds to make and 2 minutes to down and I'm always in a rush in the morning.
    You can also add 3 oz of tofu to make it thick. You can't taste it and it gives you lots of protein :)

    I am a breakfast fanatic. I love all kinds of breakfast foods. So I try to make sure I have a variety during the work week.

    Here are a few things I take with me to work (easy to transport & easy to eat at a desk)

    1. Oatmeal W/ Skim Milk, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon
    2. Greek Yogurt & Granola
    3. WW English Muffin & Peanut Butter
    4. Cheerios (Multi-grain or regular)
    5. Protein Bar & Banana

    Sometimes depending on what I bring, I have a late morning snack before lunch. Some kind of fruit. It helps so that I can stay full till lunch which sometimes I don't get till 1pm.

    Eat breakfast it is great :)
  • Cereal, or Egg on Toast & Streaky Bacon, sometimes with beans, Mine is more Brunch though as I eat 2 meals a day generally :D
