    I stayed home today to manage a medical thing, so I had time to cook! One and a half eggs boiled to the perfect balance between soft and hard (I am embarrassed to say I was too full for the last egg half), a plate full of pineapple, cantaloupe, snow peas, and red peppers, and a giant mug of excellent coffee.

    I love coffee - how do you make and take yours? @avskk

    I had my usual bowl of fruit with vanilla Skyr, and a couple of biscuits.

    I tend to get hungrier in the mornings now than I used to, so that probably won’t be enough; in that case, since I’m home this morning, I can have a poached egg as a snack later. I do love poached eggs.

    Three rashers of bacon on two slices of wholegrain toast with brown sauce and 1/2 can of baked beans. Besides that my other go-to is porridge with strawberries, blueberries, walnuts and honey

    We prep the week's breakfast on Sundays.

    In a two cup tupperware, add 1 c spinach, 1 slice of diced jalapeno, 1 piece of diced bacon, and 2 uncooked (still in shell) eggs. When breakfast comes, crack the two eggs, whisk them until scrambled, microwave for 1-1.25 min, and enjoy a nice omelette. Add a piece of fruit (apple, 1/2 cup strawberries, grapes, or blueberries), and you should be satiated for several hours.

    Perfect "on-the-go" breakfast.

    I have the same thing every day - 2 cups plain Cheerios, cut up banana on top of it, 1 cup skim milk over all that. Then I usually have a hard-boiled egg a little later.

    I gotta have my cold cereal and skim milk in the AM.

    And coffee......always coffee.

    Often overnight oats, or protein pancakes (egg, stewed apple, oats, protein powder) with natural yoghurt and berries. Rye bread with marmite and soft boiled egg(s). Avocado toast. Today was am apple and a protein shake made with nut milk.

    I call this my bird breakfast ;) 1 cup blueberries (frozen & warmed), a third cup of pumpkin flax granola, 1 tsp each of hemp, chia and flax seeds and 3 ounces plain Greek yoghurt. Lots of coffee and if I’m planning on a big gym workout a banana or orange as well. Lighter days I skip the flax, lose the berries and change the yoghurt for skim milk.

    This morning I had a scrambled egg and sausage in a low carb/calorie wrap with cheese. Coffee with whipping cream and coconut oil.

    I buy 2 packets of turkey sausage and 1 packet of pork sausage and smoosh it all together, and then cook it before portioning it out into individual servings. It lights it up considerably while still having the yummy pork sausage flavor that I prefer. My husband didn’t even notice it was different!

    I usually have either avocado toast on homemade bread with cherry tomatoes and cheese crumbles or chia pudding. For the toast I use the Wholly Guacamole chunky avocado cups instead of fresh avocado since I never get around to eating the second half before it goes brown.

    Breakfast = coffee, if I'm lucky ... these days, sometimes just water.

    Today I just ate a banana and a lara bar because I was going to an exercise class and it was either don't eat or eat something light that will digest in 40 minutes. My usual breakfast of eggs, bacon and oatmeal wouldn't. On light days I will drink a smoothie made from 1/2 cup fresh almond milk, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1/2 tsp cocoa and 1 banana. It will keep me going for about 4 hours. The banana and lara bar worked well though--about 300 calories and I had no stomach issues and had more than enough energy.

    Sometimes I'll just eat oatmeal with 1 fried egg. Or eggs and bacon with a belgian waffle. If I crave bagels I'll get a plain bagel with butter. But bagels are not a good choice for me, or any other type of bread--they don't fill me up so I usually end up off my calorie goal for the day.

    This morning was griesmeel (a Dutch type of breakfast/desert a bit like semolina) made with 1% milk and a teaspoon of sugar poured over 50g of frozen redcurrants. I've had a couple of days this week where i had two slices of toast with butter and the rest of the week has been protein smoothies: 150ml 1% milk, 30g of unflavoured whey protein powder, 70-100g of banana and 3g of cocoa powder. Quick to make and drink which is great for weekdays, it's easy to switch up the additions to the protein base mango and strawberries with yogurt, blueberries with yogurt whatever flavour fruit/ veg you like.

    Other options are porridge with fruit for sweetness I don't add sugar or muesli with low fat greek style yogurt which I tend to eat at work if I know I'm having a desk day/morning.

    I usually have scrambled eggs, but tried banana pancake...just mash a banana with an egg, and cook as pancakes in a little coconut oil. Really good with a handful of blueberries.
