    I normally just have two scrambled eggs every morning but lately its just boring and more of achore to actually eat in the morning...

    Also the reason im asking for ideas is because im annoyingly picky with foods... icon_razz.gif

    I dont like cereal, oats (unless they are topped with a ridiculous amount of sugar which kind of renders the healthiness of them pointless...), not a great fan of bread...

    So yeah... I'm kind of out of ideas... icon_razz.gif

    Use raw sugar on your oats. Then they're healthy again.

    You could cook your eggs differently. I like to make poached eggs with a slice of whole wheat toast and a cup of skim milk.
    If you are just burned out on eggs I would suggest making a smoothie.

    Thin cut pork chops cook about as quickly as eggs.

    Eat anything healthy that you like and is quick to prepare. People seem to put a lot of restrictions on what they can eat for breakfast, thinking that certain foods are for lunch or dinner or snacks or whatever. Seems like the only culturally allowed options are eggs, hot or cold cereal, bread or pastries, pancakes or waffles. Free yourself of this tyrrany! Make a sandwich. Eat a drumstick cold off the chicken you roasted last night.

    Eat leftovers. What did you make for dinner last night? Make extra and have it in the morning.

    Not really. Raw sugar is no better than refined sugar. Raw sugar should be avoided just like processed sugar.

    Here is a short read on raw sugar.

    Shush you! I was trying to be facetious. icon_razz.gif
    I only use raw sugar because it tastes "similar" to the sugar my family used to make (grampa ran a huge molasses farm).

    Potato+Omelette.jpg

    6 egg omelette mixed with potatoes (with lots of butter) and potatoes were deep fried in vegetable oil.

    Roquefort cheese

    AND you eat all of the above with:

    Fiteer Meshaltat - It is a type of dough but it is not related to pizza (diff. texture, diff. taste) at all other than the fact it looks like one...

    I eat eggs almost every day for breakfast, but I also often make french toast each weekend with high protein 7 grain bread. Each piece of French toast absorbs about one small egg. I make tons extra and freeze them so I can just pull them out and put them in the toaster. I love putting a thin coating of peanut butter on those too if I'm on the go.

    A morning without protein is a bad morning for me.

    Turkey sausage and fresh fruit like pineapples or oranges can spice things up.

    I can definitely tell you what not to eat; http://jimmydean.com/products/original-pancakes-sausage-on-a-stick.aspx

    I'm a big fan of eggs in the morning but eat what you like that's also a good source of protein. Eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, cottage cheese, toast with peanut or almond butter. I've read recipes for pancakes made with cottage cheese to cut down on the carbs and increase the protein but haven't tried them.

    Yeah too much carbs in the morning would pretty much ruin my day. I can never understand the concept of continental breakfast...and of course I hate it.

    @Mohammed that really looks amazing! I think you're right, for breakfast you can eat more because you can burn it off during the rest of the day, unlike at midnight, which is the worst time to eat. I think I'll have a big breakfast tomorrow...err...I mean later this morning.

    Ok, now I'm really hungry...
    But I actually eat:

    7 egg white omelette every morning
    1 cup of oatmeal (whole grain natural rolled oats), unsweetened
    coffee - regular

    Two plain bagels not toasted with butter and a small coffee at Tim Hortons. Its not the healthiest but I don't feel like preparing my own food that early in the morning.
