    One of my best energy receipes is:
    1 granny smith apple cut into chunks
    3-4 fresh dates cut into small pieces
    choppedup walnuts
    lemon yogurt - real stuff not low fat as they load it with sugar
    Mix it all together and enjoy

    yup, a handful of blueberries, a granny smith apple, bowl of oatmeal and a cup of white tea gets me started everyday. plus it's super easy to prepare. I snack on walnuts and almonds throughout the day.

    Cheers!

    You can also use the apple/yogurt recipe above and spoon it onto a toasted english muffin and a side of papaya or mango...

    Bran Buds. The greatest fiber cereal known to man. Eat a bowl every morning for a week. Your energy level will soar.

    Tip: Mix it with things like oats, nuts, dates, honey, etc. for flavor and variety. (Aaaaaaand, occasionally I might throw in some coco puffs).

    Love low fat greek yogurt (1/2 cup) with some type of fruit and nut (1 small macintosh apple and a few pieces of walnut today). It wasn't for the morning, but a nice after work/ pre-workout meal.

    Sounds good and a bit like what I eat, except in a different form. For me most of that comes in the form of homemade granola with plain--but full-fat; why skimp on the tastiness, after all--Armenian yogurt (though if I were in the states this would be Greek yogurt). Homemade granola, and the homemade applesauce necessary for it, is incredibly easy to make. Just look up a recipe and go for it; you'll never want to buy either store-bought granola or applesauce again.

    I eat this cereal most mornings as well. I mix about 1/2 a cup of bran buds with 1 cup plain fat free yogurt and 1 scoop whey protein (vanilla is best) I sometimes will add in a few chopped walnuts too. it is low calorie, high protein, and relatively low fat/ carb.

    I also like the cocoa roast almonds... although I generally buy the 100 calorie packs becasue if not, I will eat the entire large container of them! I try to enjoy nuts and trail mix in moderation.

    Three eggs scrambled, when done toss in a handful of cocktail tomatoes chopped in half, when warm remove from stove and add some Feta cheese, salt and pepper. A low-carb dinner that's filling.
