What do you eat for breakfast? I eat waaaay too many carbs but I’m having trouble coming up with something to eat that is not oatmeal or yogurt. And yogurt was GREAT for summer, but, now it’s getting cold! But oatmeal from a packet filled with sugar does not seem like a breakfast of champions. Any great breakfast ideas?

I make baked eggs with spinach – so easy! Just take a ramekin, throw a handful of baby spinach in it, crack and egg or two over the top, and bake it. By the time i’m out of the shower, its good to go!

I cycle through a few different items…
plain unflavored oatmeal with almond milk and a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a hard boiled egg
Scrambled egg with cheese and turkey bacon on a croissant or in a pita
Kashi breakfast bar with greek yogurt
For something super fast you can toss a banana and a few strawberries into a blender with 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt and maybe an ice cube and a splash of juice
I’d focus on getting some carbs but definitely get some protein to keep you fuller longer (and to lower the glycemic index of the meal!)

I am constantly on the go and don’t really have time in the morning to make breakfast. So, I bake a big batch of whole wheat mini banana and walnut muffins and eat three every morning in the car along with a banana. Sunday is my day off to eat breakfast so I usually make omelets and hashbrowns.

Egg whites + fruit! I hate yolks!

Cottage cheese + berries (especially strawberries). Or with an orange. Not WITH each other, but in the same meal.

how tied to breakfast foods are you?
I actually eat leftover dinner or salads a lot for breakfast.
This morning I had a mixed green salad topped with a peach salsa and chicken salad (I made with greek yogurt and light mayo)
For quick on the go you can make muffin tin veggie frittatas that you can just reheat and go. If you want, you can throw it on a whole wheat english muffin for a sandwich as well. (its a great way to use up odds and ends from dinner too)
Make and freeze breakfast burritos (scrambled eggs, spinach, salsa, onions hot sauce etc in a wrap) then just grab one and heat!

I have always eaten scrambled egg whites with ham for breakfast or greek yogurt. Recently I was told I should eat oatmeal so have been making that at work. Problem is since starting with the oatmeal I find myself famished all day. I obsess over food from morning to night. Not sure why this is so I am going back to my eggs. Just a weird little breakfast observation 🙂

@FauxBoho: I noticed when I switched from using hot water to almond milk (the unsweetened, non vanilla one) I stayed fuller longer. The almond gives it a nice flavor and it has protein for satiety. Or, take a hard boiled egg with you to have with the oatmeal.

@DaneLady: I have been looking into it and think the oatmeal really spikes my blood sugar which makes me starving. I have been slowly adding carbs back into my diet but jeez they just totally mess with me physically and mentally. It makes it very hard to have a sensible diet when I am starving all the time.

High-quality, low-sugar granola with a cut-up banana and whatever other fruit looks nice (sucks that berry season is almost over) and soy milk. Just make sure you follow the portion size on the granola.

I love egg whites or steel cut oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder and almond milk. The steel cut oats take longer to cook than regular or instant oatmeal, so I usually make a big batch in the crock pot and have it all week long. The protein helps keep me full until lunch.
