Hi bees, today I have only one thing going through my mind.
What is a Healthy Breakfast?
I am currently sitting on couch in the middle of the french coutryside. For a week my inlaws have been feeding me : Baguette+ jam+ butter for breakfast. Just writting it makes me want to cry. Startch, sugar and Fat are no way for me to start the day…. Ok enough ranting. So I can dream about delicious Food please bees, share your delicious breakfast ideas.

That sounds delicious to me! You’re in the French countryside, enjoy it!
I had some yogurt, fruit, and granola. That’s a pretty typical breakfast for me, or sometimes I’ll have an egg on an english muffin. Always coffee!

Obsessed with oats and skim milk with cinnamon on top …..

Fresh baguettes with jam and butter sounds delicious – I will occasionally have this as well!
Anyway, I mix it up with these three brekkies:
1. Porridge made with lite (not skim) milk.
2. Sultana Bran with lite milk.
3. 2 slices of cafe style raisin toast with butter (on weekends).
A nice cuppa tea almost always accompanies my brekkies

I usually eat plain oatmeal with fruit/nuts added. I struggle a lot with breakfast. I can’t handle a ton of sweet or greasy stuff in the AM, which is like EVERYTHING in a typical North American breakfast diet. lol

Normally a veggie scramble: 1 egg, 2 egg whites, cottage cheese and salsa all scrambled together.
If I have a bit more time I do 2 strips of bacon and some scrambled eggs topped with salsa and avocado.

I’ve been making it a point to sit down every morning and eat breakfast with DD (15 months old)
Here’s what we typically eat:
Plain oats with skim milk with cinnamon &/or nutmeg, and a drizzle of honey with a scrambled egg
Waffle or pancake with fruit and yogurt
Peanut butter toast with fruit
On a hurried morning I’ll grab a breakfast bar (Kashi or Nutrigrain) and yogurt with berries on top.
I basically try to make things that are toddler-appropriate, have a whole grain and a protein.

For my body, a “healthy” (I kinda hate that term) breakfast is one with lots of protein and little to no carbs. Today it was 2 eggs (from our chickens) scrambled with a generous handful of spinach and 3 slices of crumbled bacon (nitrate and sugar free from our local farm). I topped it with a spoonful of fresh pico de gallo and washed it down with a small glass of unsweetened almond milk. Yum!
If I eat oatmeal, fruit, or anything else with carbs in it for breakfast, I will feel soooo hungry for the entire day and will crave more carbs on top of what I already ate. I miss my days of bagles for breakfast, but that type of eating led me to a very unhealthy place. But that is my body, and I don’t claim that it’s the same for everyone else on this planet. Each person has to figure out what nourished them best and work with that.

lovekiss: I am the exact same way! I cannot have any grains at breakfast or lunch, if I do I have horrible cravings for all things unhealthy all day long.

I generally HATE breakfast foods and subsequently don’t usually do breakfast at all but I’ve recently become obsessed with breakfast quinoa. Basically just make the quinoa in milk instead of water (I use skim milk) add brown sugar, some cinnamon and some nutmeg to taste. Delicious. Tofu scrambles are my second favorite breakfast food… usually with spinach, tomato and black beans, sometimes a bit of cheddar cheese. Awesome!
RedHeadKel: That sounds delicious…I never thought to add coconut milk to oats!

I need a breakfast I can bring with me on the road, so I make an oat shake – 1/2 cup raw oats, 1/2 banana, large scoop peanut butter and a cup of unsweetened almond milk. Blend for a minute until smooth, pour into a protein shake cup and top with a scoop of raw organic hemp seeds. I can drink it for most the morning, keeps me full and is so delicious.

MrsFNL: Thank you for saying that. When I pass on the carbs at breakfast with friends/family, people always look at me as though I have 3 heads. Their opinions of my eating don’t really matter, but hearing someone else with the same “issue” does make me feel better. 🙂

bbfyso: I’ve really taken to making overnight oats. It’s like half a cup of dry oats, half water or milk and let sit overnight. I’ll add a scoop of nut butter and cinnamon and nuke it for a couple seconds to warm it up. SO good!! That or a Quest protein bar. The unfortunate thing is I hate eggs, I have such a hard time getting protein in the AM!
