    So I lead a very busy worklife and waking up and making breakfast is one of the last things I feel like doing. And eggs just don't cut it for me, so boring after 3 days in a row.

    Don't even try suggesting Cottage Cheese, because its probably one of the nastiest things I've put in my mouth (and man, thats a lot of things! :winkicon_smile.gif

    I'm trying to lose ~15ish lbs, and I struggle with breakfast and wind up starving by lunchtime.

    I could do the protein shake route, but that's a lot of powder meals if I have one PWO and Breakfast....

    Anything can be breakfast - yogurt, blueberries, almonds, etc.

    you're too young to know this:

    I had started making oatmeal but it petered out as my blue berry supply dwindled.
    Has a yogurt and a cinnamon graham cracker this morning. icon_razz.gif

    My perfect idea of breakfast.......a diner or delivery....tell them exactly what you want.........you eat it...feel satisfied...pay the bill.......and be on your merry way. Hate the whole idea of cooking and cleaning....especialy at the ungodly hour of 6am....just want to eat.

    Breakfast is my main meal for the day. So I have a big cook up for breakfast. Oh I got over working days long ago. I hate to rush in the mornings. Take me time to make, and eat a big breakfast. Better than the traffic.

    But I also love to eat buckwheet.

    eat some fruits! Before I head to work, I'll grab a banana and some other fruit, and water or some kind of juice. Sometimes I'll have some sort of nuts along with it.

    Aw damn...I thought this was going to be a forum about how to get the guy you slept with last night out of your house as quickly as possible...icon_wink.gif

    ...to stay on topic...I hard boil eggs...have tons of yogurt on hand...powerbars...and coffee...ocassionally cereal...

    ...I'm good with any of those combinations until 11:30 AM...then the 'hungry monster' comes to visit...

    I make protein enriched oatmeal pancakes.
    Use 4 scoops protein powder, 4 servings of oatmeal, 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour, 1/2c eggwhites, and about 3 tblespoons of either water or skim milk...
    cook and it should make between 4 to 5 4" pancakes. Each has about 30 grams protein, and 35g carbs, about 4g fiber 0g fat. Put in fridge and microwave each one each morning and you have complete breakfast.

    I just tend to eat a load of fruit blended together with some oats and a dash of protein if I have any in the house.

    The whole preparation takes me 5 minutes

    I either make a smoothie with fresh fruit and protein or have a whole wheat waffle, egg and piece of reduced fat swiss cheese made into a sandwich. Sometimes I substitute the piece of cheese with salsa. They're both quick, easy and pretty healthy.

    I make a Green smoothie everyday, seriously quick, easy and tasty despite the ingredients!

    some ice
    some water
    2 cups of fresh Spinach
    1 banana
    1 cup of Mangoes
    1 tbsp of Flax Seed oil
    Blend it all!

    Keep in mind it tastes more like Mangoes than anything!!

    Then pre-boil some eggs for egg whites on the side and eat them in the car and drink your smoothie!

    I eat GoLean cereal and GoLean Crunch cereal mixed together with fresh fruit and skim milk. Low fat, high fiber, high protein, and yummy.

    Usually I alternate days between a 2 egg (lowfat) cheese omelet, and oatmeal with cinnamon and Splenda.

    But when I am in a hurry I will frequently halve and core an apple or pear and spread peanut butter over the two halves. Quick, easy, and mostly good for you.

    - An Omelette

    A bowl of cereal (Corn Flakes, Shreddies, Cheerios, Bran Flakes, etc.) and a cup of coffee. After 1 hour I work out.

    Don't go without breakfast if you can help it. A decent breakfast will help prevent overeating later in the day when your body does not need the calories as much.

    right after I wake up, 1 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice then I prepare simple quick breakfast with my eyes closed icon_smile.gif

    >>Trader Joe's Oatmeal Blueberry Mix to which i add a cup of plain rolled oats and ground flax, hot water and frozen blueberries (I pick every year about 2 bucketfulls and freeze them) let sit in a dish while I shower.

    its easy to keep up with it and for some reason I haven't gotten tired of it (had it for 3 months now every day)!

    I like to have whole wheat toast with natural peanut butter (b/c there's WAY less sugar) on it. You've got whole grains, carbs, protein. It's a great breakfast that gets me through until lunch!

    I do the same sort of thin, but with a whole wheat bagel. And a cup of coffee with sugar free french vanilla creamer.

    I like having some cereal with blueberries on top, can substitute banana or raspberries too.

    I also make breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs and salsa.

    Other ideas include wheat bagels, yogurt, juice any sort of fruit will do fine. Cereal is great because its fortified with so many nutrients you most likely wont have to take a daily vitamin if you have an adequate diet on top of it.

    Oatmeal, toast, grits for those southerners.

    I actually got to the point of buying groceries and bringing them to work. So the first thing I do after clocking in is eat some fiber cereal with a side of yogurt and a banana, so I too get paid to eat breakfast. Also, it allows me to actually sit there and eat it without feeling rushed or having to shovel it down my throat because i'm afraid i'm going to be late. I've read so many articles and heard so many people discuss the importance of breakfast, and this was the best way for me to incorporate it into my routine without forcing me to actually wake up sooner :p Peanut butter sandwich with an apple is a good substitute if the cereal starts to get to bland...
