I used to just run out the door in the morning, leaving just enough time to grab a cup of coffee on the way to work. However, when I was trying to lose weight for the wedding, I became a breakfast eater for the first time in my adult life. Now I actually like eating breakfast and feel crappy if I don’t eat anything in the morning. I usually have a bowl of cereal or oatmeal.
Do you eat breakfast in the morning? If so, what do you eat?

I’ve always been a breakfast person. A few months ago, I switched from cereal to soft boiled eggs (I don’t eat all the yellow) and turkey sausage. I’m amazed at how much extra energy the protein boost gives me.

I used to not eat breakfast when I’d go to school, but when I was working as a nanny I’d eat when I fed the baby his breakfast in the morning. Sometimes I’d get a McDonalds sandwhich (bad, i know) or a parfait, sometimes a bagel, or oatmeal, cereal, or even just a breakfast bar even. Typical easy things, nothing fancy like eggs or french toast lol

I started eating breakfast about a year ago. I used to have egg whites and one piece of wheat toast. Or a protein smoothie with fruits. Oatmeal didn’t last too long but I did eat it for a little while. Now that I am not vigorously working out and trying to lose weight for my wedding I stick to a high fiber cereal with lots of fruit like blueberries. I can’t believe I used to just have coffee for breakfast.

I am so weird. I must eat right when I wake up. I will start the coffee, get his water boiling for tea, and make something- usually cream of wheat or cream of brown rice with rice milk and mashed banana. It’s my favorite. I basically eat it every morning.

I have to eat breakfast. What I eat varies. My fiance likes to make eggs, cheese and grits. YUM. But not so good on the hips. I try to eat cereal, oatmeal, or a smoothie. OR sometimes he makes me a scrambled egg with cheese on a whole wheat english muffin. Yummy. Hmm…I’m hungry… 🙂

I’ve never been a breakfast person but I really need to try a little harder. Honestly, I usually don’t have my first meal until the afternoon when I get off work and I’m starving. It’s really no good. I’m a massage therapist too, so a lot of times if I’m giving a massge in the morning my stomach will start making all these noises and sometimes it’s sooo loud. I just don’t get hungry until later in the day. This just reminds me that I need to be a little bit better about my weird eating habits!

I don’t have time before I leave the house to eat, but always bring something to eat at work. Yogurt, granola bar, english muffin. My latest kick is YO PLUS – its fiber yogurt. Sounds icky, but its really good (and good for you).

No… I usually have 2 cups of coffee (if its cold outside) and eat my first meal around noon… usually a sandwich. Food in the morning kind of makes me want to vomit. I know that breakfast is the most important meal but I really love sandwiches and I dont like breakfast food! Plus, eating when I’m not hungry sounds totally bizarre, even though i know they always tell us to do it.

I have to eat something within a half an hour of waking up, or I get lightheaded and cranky. I am a huge cereal junkie, mostly the sugary kind! This week I am alternating between cinnamon toast crunch and cocoa krispies! Yum! Mr. Taffy doesn’t ever eat breakfast during the week, but he will on the weekends.

I eat breakfast of course! Your body is like a furnance and if you want it to work you have to feed it so it can burn! I make either a protein shake or 6 eggwhites and oatmeal with lots of cinammon which is really good for you! Oh and a whole grapefruit too, yummy! I work out at 5am so right when i get up before i head to the gym i eat 1/2 a banana and then make my breakfast when i get home around 7am.

I wish I ate breakfast! Usually I just pour some coffee in my poor stomach. I’ll probably have ulcers by the time I’m 30!

I could not skip breakfast if my life depended on it!!! I wake up starving every morning. Lately I have 1 cup Kashi GoLean Crunch cereal with nonfat milk and fresh berries. One day a week I have a splurgy breakfast of an omelette with whole wheat toast. The splurgy part is what’s in the omelette: applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese and avocado. Yikes, but it’s the one "bad" meal I allow myself each week and I go to the gym after breakfast on Saturdays so I work a bunch of it right off.
