Breakfast.

I was wondering if you all would share your go to breakfast.
I usually have oatmeal and fruit but getting sick of it and looking for other good options.

Thanks

    I have all kinds of things, including more dinner-oriented foods. This morning I had some spaghetti squash, some turnips, a couple of French breakfast radishes, this hybrid kale/brussels sprout thing I bought at the farmers market and was trying (not bad!), smoked salmon, and an egg, over easy.

    But that's weirder than my usual breakfast. More commonly I have a vegetable omelet -- whatever I have on hand, for example spinach, leek, and zucchini, with 2 eggs, some feta.

    Oh, and coffee. ;-)

    More often than not I have hot cereal, eggs, yogurt and fruit, in some combination or another.

    IN general tho, and a broad idea for you to take away and ponder:

    Food is what I eat for breakfast.
    Seriously, I don’t care what kind of food as long as it is:
    - Tasty - herbs and spices
    - Handy - in my house, not at the store
    - Quick to heat & plate - I’m a meal prep nerd
    - Balanced for my Macro targets - loving the MFP experience!
    - Weighed/measured - controls my plan
    - Logged - displays my results over time.

    Now, let me admit right here that most of my family thinks I’m pretty bat-kitten crazy for how I eat, but, they aren’t asking me to feed them, and I”m not forcing my way on them, so I really don’t give a hoot if they think spareribs, kale and some yogurt for breakfast is wrong.

    Good luck to you!

    I usually have something small for breakfast and tend to eat either on the road or when I get to work. So I keep shelf stable things in my desk, plus have frozen stuff I can grab and microwave when I get there.

    Instant Oatmeal
    Kashi GoLean Peanut Butter Crunch cereal (this is my "it's the weekend!" treat)
    Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Sandwich
    Belvita Breakfast Cookies
    Starbucks Turkey Bacon Sandwich
    Dunkin Donuts Turkey Sausage Sandwich
    FiberOne Oat & Chocolate Bar

    I eat a lot of different things for breakfast, but a couple things I go to with high frequency are Greek yogurt/cottage cheese with fruit, or fried eggs with some kind of carb (leftover potato, English muffin, toast, whatever). I also uh... am a friend to McMuffins large and small.

    Aside from those three routines, I pretty much eat whatever for breakfast. Dinner leftovers, giant salad or wilted greens with an egg, cheese and crackers, oatmeal and fried ham, it's all good in my book.

    Seriously folks 3/4 cup is 120 calories, even adding some skim milk or non dairy creamer and a cup off coffee comes out under 200 calories without all the prep and clean up from exotic breakfasts. I don’t worry about protein, sugars, carbs.
    Just want something to get rolling with that’s not crazy calories.

    12 grams chocolate PB2, 20 grams chocolate whey protein powder, 30 grams Trader Joe's high fiber cereal, and 175 grams 0% Fage Greek yogurt. Stir, thin with water or milk to your desired consistency. My portion is 298 calories, 40 grams of protein, 12 grams of fiber, creamy crunchy chocolatey deliciousness.

    If I feel like cooking, I might have a couple of scrambled eggs with a slice of cheese and a sprinkle of Penzey's Fox Point. The macros aren't as good for me, but sometimes cheesy eggs really hit the spot.

    If I need a quick and/or lower calorie breakfast, I will probably just grab a Quest bar.

    English muffin. 1/2 with PB other 1/2 has strawberry preserves. 1-2 sliced of bacon depending on my mood. And 2 eggs with mushrooms and spinach scrambled.

    Other option is breakfast pizza.
    Tortillia w/ Taco bell hot sauce, 1 scrambled egg, black beans, mushroom, sprinkle some cheese on top. Sometimes I add avocado or other goodies. Just depends on how hungry I am.

    Other days leftovers from previous dinners.

    2 slices 40cal toast, each topped with 1tbsp cream cheese, thin slice of raw red onion, solid egg patty, a sprinkle of shredded cheese, and salt.

    Otherwise, 2 eggs with mushrooms, garlic, broccoli, squash, whatever, with avocado and salsa.

    I'm vegetarian, or I'd probably be adding turkey slices.

    Half a bagel with cream cheese and 1 scrambled egg with 1/2 a cup of egg whites with cheddar cheese mixed in.

    Sometimes I will make a spinach/mushroom omelette in a bit of coconut oil.

    I miss Cocoa Pebbles (and Fruity Pebbles). The shame of living in Canada. *sigh*

    I just eat easy-to-make stuff that I don't have to have my brain much engaged for. Been cereal with diet soda for years. When I feel like getting really complicated, I'll make micro polenta with molasses.

    This morning, I had a slice of peanut butter toast and some hot chocolate.

    Yesterday, I had a scrambled egg with cheese.

    The day before, I think I just had a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows.

    Sometimes I have nothing (usually because I'm slack and running late). I typically have a snack around 10 every day, though.

    My wife cooks egg cup omelettes for a week. Take a muffin tray and put an egg in each with whatever your favorite omelette goodies are and pop them in the oven.

    Toast with peanut butter and raspberry jam, coffee. On weekends sometimes pancakes, waffles or eggs.

    Breakfast for me is mostly:

    Scrambled or poached eggs x 2 with wholemeal granary toast x 1 slice and tea - 230 cals
    or
    40g porridge oats/ 15g peanut butter/ half banana/ handful blueberries/ 10g Nutella - 350 cals

    I keep my breakfasts fairly low calorie because I prefer to enjoy a mid morning snack and that uses up another 150 cals at least.

    Yogurt for protein so I don’t crash... and I like to start my day out with dessert 😃
