    Gotta save this for later. I always have so many problems with breakfast. Thanks for a great thread!

    My go to breakfast when I don't feel like cooking and I'm sick of eggs is cream of wheat with chocolate whey protein powder mixed in! Gives it a chocolatey taste while giving me a nice boost of protein!

    For one serving of cream of wheat (3 tbs dry) I use half a scoop of the protein powder. It's super yummy and filling and only 160 calories!!

    This morning for breakfast I had 2 slices of white toast with Olivio spray butter and cinnamon and sugar on top, with a banana. I also had a cup of coffee with sugar and creamer----264 calories.

    If I want a low-cal breakfast I have a serving of instant ramen and a glass of milk or some cold cereal. Err, I know that doesn't sound very appetizing but I'm sure with a little fnagling it can be improved...

    Bagel Thins, 1/4 cup egg beaters, slice of cheese, 1-2 tbsp salsa. Toast the bagel, cook the egg beaters, put everything together except the salsa, throw it in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds, add salsa. 205 calories!

    :smile: I like to have a hard boiled egg, a banana and usually 6 oz of fat free vanilla yogurt for a mid morning snack.

    1 slice dry, wheat toast (78c), 2 egg whites scrambled (32c), 2 pieces turkey bacon (70c). I make it into a foldover and it's pretty filling. Could even add a 2nd piece of toast but who needs the extra 78 calories?

    My two favorite breakfasts are: 1) Morningstar farms spicy bean burger, cut up and mixed into 1 egg and 1/2 cup egg whites. Top with homemade salsa.
    2) steel cut oats, 1/2 cup egg whites, craisins, flaxseed (ground), cinnamon on top.

    Now that it is warmer I have cottage cheese (nonfat) and a cup of no sugar added fruit, with coffee, half and half and a banana. (I spread it out).

    Another cool trick is to make 1 whole egg 2 egg white scrambles with spinach, tomato, bell pepers, maybe a serving of fat free cheese then salsa or hot sauce.

    Both of these are way under 400 calories. Cottage cheese is around 250 while the egg scramble is around 175! The eggs will fill you up!

    I suggest eating fruit as much as possible. It's a good way to get your system going. Cut up a melon and have it ready in your fridge in single servings. I have a banana almost everyday just because it is so easy to carry, peel and eat anywhere anytime.

    I like to do a big handful of fresh spinach, a Kirkland (Costco) turkey patty, a sunny side up egg, and sriracha. It's low carb, pretty low fat, and packed with protein.

    First measure 1 C of dry regular or organic oatmeal and blend in a processor until it is flour consistancy. I store in a small container.

    1/2 C of oatmeal flour
    1/4 tsp baking powder
    1/4 C almond milk or skim milk
    1/4 tsp vanilla, nut and butter flavoring
    1/2 small banana quartered and cut into little pieces
    1/4 fresh blue berries
    1 pkg Splenda (2 if you like sweeter)

    Makes 2 large pancakes or 3 small. I fix with 2 TBS SF pancake syrup and a dollop of ff,sf whip cream.
