    I'm teaching myself how to cook and I can only make eggs (sorta), but they end up tasting like the pan. Lately I've been making eggs, putting them in a tortilla, and drinking that with a cup of cofee. It usually helps me get going throughout the day!

    What about you guys? Recipe ideas greatly appreciated :-)

    Are you just asking for general breakfast ideas, or do you have a specific goal in mind fitness-wise: gaining or losing weight?

    Smoothie
    - 1/2c lowfat vanilla yogurt
    - 5 fresh strawberries
    - 3/4c frozen blueberries
    - 1 banana, chopped up.
    - 1c milk

    The insane amount of fiber in a smoothie like this help fill you up and prevent any hunger pangs for at least a few hours provided you also eat something solid with it. Otherwise it just goes right through you.

    With this I also eat a slice or two of whole-wheat toast with strawberry preserves on one half and peanut butter on the other half (the incomplete proteins in peanut butter are completed by the fibers and amino acids in the toast and will make you feel much more full when eaten together). After this I eat a lightly fried egg.

    There was another thread about bullet proof coffee. Check it out; it's awesome.

    Fiber. Namely Post Shredded Wheat Squares with Bran and a banana, milk and coffee. I usually fill a two-cup bowl with cereal and banana. It is bulky enough to make me feel full for a long time and really not that heavy. Sometimes I sub a couple of pieces of the highest fiber whole wheat bread I can find, toasted and spread with peanut butter and a piece of fruit. Also like oatmeal with boiled eggs or cottage cheese with fruit and granola on top.

    If you eggs taste like the pan, you may be cooking them too fast. Use very low heat, add a small pat of butter and about the same amount of olive oil. When it is all melted, roll it around in the pan and add the beaten eggs. Cook slowly, using a spatula/scraper to lift the eggs from around the side of the pan as they cook. It really does not take long--about as long as it takes to make medium-dark toast. I love eggs!

    OJ
    Double-latte.
    Two-egg no-cheese omelette w/ ham and veg plus 1/4-cup (before cooking) steel-cut oats with dried berries.

    You have to start the oats cooking (and slam the OJ) first thing when you roll out of bed. Then go do morning chores or yoga, or whatever it is that you do, and then by the time you fix the rest, the oats are just ready.

    Re: eggs. One way -

    Heat up a splash of olive oil in the pan (to cover bottom) on medium heat
    Dice up some "contents"- lean ham, green peppers, onions, etc.
    Put eggs in a small bowl with garlic, shot of tabasco, splash of milk, ground pepper, maybe pinch of salt and whisk it.
    Put the "contents" in the hot pan and let it sizzle for half a minute. Pour the egg mixture in. Go deal with the coffee and check your RJ messages.

    Fold or flip the omelette. Serve. If you are going to add tomatoes or avocado, it's best to add it just before folding. Or just put a spoon full of salsa or guacamole on top.

    My first breakfast generally consists of mixed nut, dried fruit, and dark chocolate chip trail mix with cold coffee and a Ritalin. I might toss back a couple of raw eggs if I'm feeling extra gnarly.

    Post gym, anything goes for second breakfast as long as it is healthy protein and stuff.

    3 slices of bacon, 3 eggs fried in the bacon grease, 2 slices of white toast with strawberry preserves and a pot of coffee. If your eggs taste like the pan, try cooking in a cast iron skillet instead of that Teflon shit.

    Oatmeal with raisins and/or cranberry's and coffee. (And, I agree, "instant" oatmeal doesn't stick to your ribs as much.) I would like a smoothie, but I'm too f-ing lazy.

    shouldn't breakfast be your "big" meal of the day? most people have it all backwards.

    I don't eat a big breakfast. For the past few months, I've only been eating jalapeƱo string cheese (2 or 3) and Greek yogurt with a bottle of water or a bottle of orange juice.

    It gets me through the day.
