    I only workout in the mornings on weekends and here is what I eat

    Pre-gym: bowl of oatmeal or bowl of high fiber/high protein Kashi cereal, 1/2 banana, 2 boiled egg whites

    immediate post-gym (as I am leaving the gym): Whey protein shake

    within the next 1 hr to 1.5 hrs: 2nd 1/2 of banana, chicken breast, 1.5 cups of non-fat frozen yogurt w/ frozen berries, rolled oats, and flax seed.

    Most days for breakfast I have a bowl of oatmeal with some strawberry yoghurt (instead of milk) and Splenda half-brown-sugar in it and whole wheat toast with PB&J and a banana or grapefruit.. some days I have a nuked egg, cheese slice & sliced turkey sandwich on whole wheat.. and occasionally if I have time I'll have an omelette with onion, sliced turkey & cheese and toast with PB&J.

    Ever since I started observing breakfast instead of just skipping it or skimping on Lucky Charms cereal, I've actually gotten to like making breakfast icon_smile.gif

    Raptor saidBacon, eggs, sausage, country ham, biscuits, pancakes, waffles, cheese. Those are usually the things I eat for breakfast, believe it or not.

    And it's delicious. icon_smile.gif


    Since breakfast is my main meal of the day. I eat well and big. You would find most of the above, on my table, plus. If I am not going to have a big breakfast. One eats a bowl of uncooked oatmeal, with milk.

    What haven't I eaten for breakfast? I usually workout in the afternoon, so breakfast is pretty substantial.

    Omlette (5 whites, 1 whole egg), veggies thrown in (tomatoes, onions, peppers), whole wheat toast, coffee, juice

    Turkey chili w/pretzels

    Chicken tenderloins, mixed veggies and brown rice

    Peanut butter (natural) and jelly (natural sweetened w/fruit juice)

    Fat-free vanilla yogurt w/granola or grape-nuts

    Just because it's breakfast doesn't mean you have to limit yourself to breakfast-type food items and meals.

    I try to eat Steel cut oats or regular oatmeal everyday - with a little brown sugar and some milk. I also eat pineapple, watermellon, noneydew melon, strawberries, oranges, apples, grapefruit or other fruit every morning. Lime and grapefruit juice mixed in water is what I drink throughout the day. As an alt. breakfast once in awhile, I might have French toast or pancakes, eggs, bacon - but only rarely - and only if someone makes these things for me - I'm not a very good cook!
