    I find breakfast he hardest meal to eat. I workout first thing in the day and I need a good breakfast or my blood sugar drops during my workout, but I find breakfast boring.

    Anybody know any good recipes for home made granola or some kind of cereal other than oatmeal that will give me a good start?

    I just buy the store made granola cuz its the same as you would make at home but its just easier to pour it out of the box. You can get good granola at Whole Foods market if there is one near you.

    I like to make some eggs (put salsa and it sauce on mine) and a couple pieces of toast. I usually make a big protein shake to go with it: one to two scoops chocolate protein, one heaping spoonful of peanut butter, one to two scoops raw oats, one banana (you can add some strawberries as well), skim milk and ice. It covers all my bases and I usually have plenty of energy.

    I've got to agree with the guy who posted earlier. Granola is excellent (just avoid the ones with a lot of added sugar). Sprinkle in some berries and you've got a great breakfast without crashing by mid morning.

    It boggles the mind how so many people can function by skipping breakfast. But that's another topic.

    I still love my breakfast and I've been eating it for years. It varies a bit but it's basically 80 grams of wheat bran, 40 grams of rolled oats, 42 grams of dried fruit diced, 220 grams soy milk, 1 tablespoon quinoa bran, 50 grams unreconstituted frozen juice (any one with no added sugar), 50 grams of pumpkin, 30 grams of pureed whole lemon, 1/4 teaspoon salt. Various spices; allspice, cinnamon, cardamon, etc. I used to cook it in the microwave, now I cook it in a 4 cup pyrex glass measuring cup sitting on a trivet in a pressure cooker with a few cups of water around it, for 5 minutes at high, natural release (about 15 minutes for the pressure to go down). When it comes out I slice a banana over it, stir it in with the knife, then pour some almond milk over it and stir some more. I call it my breakfast mush.

    All that dried fruit makes it sweet. The almond milk is unsweetened. The soy is regular (sweetened). I'm guessing that the wheat bran and oats help delay the absorption of the sugars and so keep my blood sugar from spiking. Plus, fructose is a good sugar on the glycemic index charts.

    Dry oatmeal + 2 raw eggs + cottage cheese + mashed up banana + dried cranberries. Mash it up and cook it like a pancake. I have it every day.

    Cold cereal route: Post's Shredded Wheat Squares with Bran, a banana or some fruit and milk. Plenty of fiber, easy to fix while stumbling around waking up and enough decent carbs to keep you going.
