I always usually eat the same thing for breakfast.
1/2 cup of fiber one cereal
1 fruit of some sort (oranges, apples, pears, bananas)
1 cup of black coffee/milk coffee/tea
Do you eat the same thing everyday? I do just because I need to run out and having a bag of cereal and fruit usually works best for me (I pack lunch too so I pack my breakfast in the same bag) I grab coffee on my way or when get to I'm where I'm suppose to be.
AND now.. at this point also eat 1 cup of fullfat/non fat yogurt with peanut butter with fruit too. Sometimes one more snack too :) hahahahaha
No, I vary what I eat for breakfast. Often, I try to get a good shot of protein in to start the day.
- 4 cups black coffee
- 2 tangelos
- 5 egg whites fried in a bit of evoo with black pepper and garlic
What are tangelos?
I eat those things above just because I can't make myself get up and cook that early haha (even when I'm home i usually eat the same thing for breakfast) and its easy to pack. Kudos to you guys who actually can cook in the morning!
1 cup oatmeal (1/2 cup before cooking) with 1 cup mixed berries and 1 tbsp peanut butter mixed in. Yummy! I usually have two whole grain low-fat waffles with the fruit and peanut butter but decided to switch it up today and I am glad I did, same calories but more filling!
I eat the same thing EVERY day. If I have to make a decision in the morning, it just slows me down.
My current breakfast:
1 Kashi Bar before workout
2 scoops protein shake in water after workout
I know, I hate eating so many processed foods, but working on my new morning schedule (I'm currently off dairy because of my skin, and the other cooked items take too long). Other phases I've gone through:
- Blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries with Greek yogurt
- Strawberries and wheat germ with no salt added cottage cheese
- Honey Nut Cheerios and milk
- 2 egg whites, 1 whole egg scrambled and a slice of double fiber bread
- Old fashioned oatmeal
I'd like to see what other people do as far as a quick carby (not a banana) pre-workout food that won't upset my stomach only 10 minutes before working out.
4 eggs, bacon or sausage, and toast w/butter
Either yogurt and berries or pumpkin and cottage cheese later on with an apple
Tangelos are, for me, the greatest fruit invention of Mother Nature (well, actually humans, since they "created" the kind I eat) since apples.
They are a cross between mandarins (tangarines) and grapefruits.
- They are easy to peel.
- They are super juicy, like drinking a cup of juice in each one.
- They are mildly sweet, less than an orange, but not tart like a grapefruit.
- You can recognize them by the little knob on one end.
Each one would have around 45-70 calories per fruit, I believe, depending on size, of course.
Pre- Breakfast: toast with honey and peanut butter, 2 cups coffee w turbinado.
hiked three miles with my wife, then Breakfast:
Three egg omelette, with red bell, anaheim, jalapeno, onion, and goat cheese
two more cups of coffee
1/4 cup of cashews.
2 or 3 lightly salted brown rice cakes with 2 tbs of Nutella and an apple. I also have either an energy shot (6 hour energy) or a cup of coffee with Stevia Vanilla Creme.
I had the best breakfast EVER!! I ate a nice lacto.ovo breakfast today of blueberry waffles, 1 WHOLE egg mixed with spinach, and vegetarian sausage. Oh and I had 1/2 cup greek yogurt with maple syrup. I love maple syrup :)
It tasted awesome as well. I am actually quite satisfied
My macronutrient range for breakfast was great even though i wasn't aiming for something specific. It was 25% fat, and about 45% carbs and 30% protein. Very good! It was a bit over 400 calories as well. Nice size.
I usually have cereal with milk, oatmeal with fruit or yogurt, or a fiber bar with fruit or yogurt.
But TODAY I had:
Maple and Brown sugar oatmeal
2 tablespoons of cream cheese
I always have the same thing midweek.
Porridge (think its called oatmeal in the US), with chopped dried dates and skimmed milk. The dates go like caramel and sweetens it up without the need of sugar.
Save toast and the butter that comes with it for the weekends as a treat!!
Today i was a bad girl and had cheesecake for breakfast XD
but usually i'll have a bowl of multigrain cheerios with almond milk and an egg
mmmmm i love breakfast. Recently every day Ive been eating...
30 g of oatmeal with 1 tbsp of peanut butter and 2 packets sweet n low
1 grapefruit yogurt
1 large cup of green tea!
I try to target between 300-350 calories for breakfast, and am aiming for high protein.
On Sundays I'll make a big batch of ricotta pancakes. Enough to last a few days into the week. I eat 3 of those in one sitting, with some fruit and maple syrup.
I use my rice steamer to make an oatmeal/quinoa hot cereal. Put old fashioned oats and quinoa flakes into the steamer with water and cinnamon. Turn it on. Come back in 20 mins and it's finished. I usually eat it with some fresh berries or half a mashed banana, and always a half tablespoon of maple syrup. Sometimes I throw a whole egg in the steamer for the last 10 minutes to get a hard boiled egg as well. I have also tripled the amount so I can reheat the leftovers for a couple of days afterwards.
When I have time, l make an omelette with one whole egg and 4 egg whites, and tons of veggies, a little ham or diced chicken. Before I fold it over, I'll spoon over a little salsa, or slices of laughing cow cheese. Omelettes don't take long if you precut the fillings. I sometimes cut up enough onions, peppers and mushrooms for 3 or 4 omelettes, keep them in a container in the fridge and use as needed.
If I make it a meatless omelette, I have enough calories left over to have a little side dish of cottage cheese with fresh pineapple or peaches. Or instead, some Ryvita bread with almond butter.
I love cold cereals, but don't find them very filling, so since I've been dieting I've steered clear of them, except for the sprinkling of some granola on yogurt, for a snack in the evening.
I've also dropped coffee entirely... with the exception of the occasional cup on the weekend. I've switched over to tea.
I usually eat 1 serving of dry cereal (Whatever box of Healthy is already open - King Vitamin today, Kashi wheat biscuits tomorrow) and 1 serving of Bolthouse Farms fruit smoothie. And a multivitamin. I work mornings a lot and I don't want to have to get up earlier to cook - besides, I love cereal! I'd eat it as a snack.
I almost always end up having either one of the following 2 breakfasts:
(1) 1 WW toast with egg, cheese and ham + 1 fruit.
(2) 2 WW toast with peanut butter + 1 fruit.
This morning I had #2 with a kiwi.
I normally would have a bowl of grits with cheese and 2 eggs with OJ in the morning but for the past 2 weeks Ive been changing my eating habits so I normally have a bananna or a cup of tangerines. Im a 5'3 170 lb female whos trying to lose 40lbs I would love to have someone I could chat with to encourage and hopefully we could beat this weight issue together!!!!!!!!!!
oh no i think i eat the most for breakfast.
i have coffee with coffee mate and sweetner pre run.
come home and eat:
vitatop muffin with fat free cream cheese.
fiber one honey clusters (about 1 cups worth)
0% plain greek yogurt
usually a serving of another cereal.
Two scrambled eggs, 1/2-3/4 cup of cooked oatmeal (the real stuff) with cinnamon and a quarter cup raisins, 1/2 cup skim milk (in the oatmeal) and 1 cup melon/cantaloupe fruit salad. YUM! I eat this breakfast on days I do weight training, and eat a lighter breakfast of cereal and milk + fruit on other days because i don't need the extra energy.
Edit: I forgot to add tea! I always have a big cup of tea. Usually black and switch to green after.
usually oatmeal with apples and cinnamon, or dried cherries and almonds.. lately it's been kashi honey sunshine cereal with a banana and a piece of whole wheat toast with pb (and thank you oldguysrule.. I'll be adding honey tomorrow!!)
next week I'm going to have a whole wheat bagel with 2 eggs, cheese and 1-2 cups of veggies. probably for the week.. yum!
oh, and always, always coffee ;)
