cls9q: For the last couple of weeks I’ve been doing a spinach smoothie and taking it to go, I usually make it at night and then split the contents of the blender into two insulated cups and it will last for two days in the fridge. I do 2-3 cups of spinach (2 big handfuls), 2 cups of a mixed fruit (either mixed berries or mixed pineapple, peaches and mango), 1 cup almond milk, 1 cup water and 2 bananas for 2 mornings worth of breakfast. It’s delicious, you really can’t taste the spinach. 

Buttt that said I’m trying to do something a little different this week. I’m just going to make a bunch of hardboiled eggs tonight and eat 2 in the mornings plus a little fruit. I’m trying to do no/low carb (other than sugar from the fruit) at breakfast or lunch. Another idea is an egg casserole – veggies, eggs, meat if you want it (I only eat meat once a day, dinner time also), bake it and eat a piece each morning.

Smoothies!  Big handful of spinach, vanilla or chocolate protein powder, banana or whatever fruit you want.   Add almond milk or water and ice and you’re good to go!  I like to add PB2 (powdered peanut butter) to my smoothies and it tastes like a peanut butter cup.

You can also try jazzing up your oatmeal- look online for overnight oat recipes, there are so many variations that it’s hard to get bored!

I also like to do egg muffins- you can pre-make egg patties (I use this pan: http://www.amazon.com/Chicago-Metallic-Non-Stick-Original-Muffin/dp/B003YKGRBY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1413140824&sr=8-2&keywords=muffin+top+pan by using the muffin top pan the egg is a bit thinner and fits the english muffin perfectly versus using a regular muffin tin), then just toast an english muffin, heat up the egg, and add cheese or anything else you want.  Instant breakfast sandwich.

hard boiled eggs, rolled up deli meat (turkey and cheese), greek yogurt with a tablespoon of peanut butter mixed in (YUM).

 

also, i make egg muffins ahead of time and freeze them, and then heat them up each morning. they’re super delicious, filling and you can add anything in them you want. take 6 or so eggs and mix them with a splash of milk, some cheese, veggies or meat, whatever you would want in an omlet. i love just spinach and tomato with some turkey sausage.

spray a muffin pan with cooking spray and pour the egg mixture in. bake on 375 for about 15-20mins til cooked and voila – breakfast!

Bacon.

It’s healthy by osmosis because we kept in next to the yogurt in the fridge.

cls9q:  I know you said you’re sick of oatmeal, but have you tried steel cut oats instead? I HATE oatmeal because of it’s texture. But I liked it as steel cut…I would make a batch of that, and some hard boiled eggs to last me a few days. Usually added a few tablespoons of almond milk. Sometimes I added a teaspoon of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon to it and mixed the eggs in. 

I also second PP’s idea of egg muffins, I made lots of variations depending upon what veggies or protein I had in the house. I did not freeze mine because I made them in smaller batches every 3 or 4 days, and they heated up with about 15 to 20 seconds in microwave.

cls9q:  Fage greek yogurt, plain full-fat, it has no added sugars and it’s got a ridiculous amount of protein.  Don’t even bother with the non-fat variety, it’s not nearly as satisfying and research is showing it’s not as good for you anywy.  Fage makes individual cups for travel but I just buy the big container and portion it out to save a little money (the stuff ain’t cheap).

cls9q:  Have you tried variations on your oatmeal?  http://www.buzzfeed.com/samimain/overnight-oats-recipes-to-restore-your-faith-in-breakfast#2vyxcdw

I made a big batch of granola and have been eating that with a bit of warm almond milk or sprinkled on yogurt – might be too similar to oatmeal if you’re sick of that though.  

I’ve made the egg muffins as well.  I wasn’t sure about freezing them so I only made enough for that morning.  I made the mixture the night before then tossed it in the oven the next morning 🙂

WW toast wth a little PB & J, a fried egg, or a spinach / fruit / protein smoothie made by my best friend the Nutribullet.

cls9q:  I didn’t! But I’m not really a creamer person. Might sound weird, but flavored creamer is WAY too sweet for me. But I’m adventurous! I’ll try it!
