100 cal English muffin toasted with egg white and cheese. I use two egg whites and split the cheese slice in half and eat them open face.
Rice cakes with jelly or nut butter :)

1 package instant oatmeal (regular, no sugar added) with the amount of water suggested, 3 egg whites, a dash of cinnamon & Equal or Spenda to taste.  Mix well.  Nuke for 3 minutes or so while you do something else.  Tastes great & the extra protein will keep you feeling full all morning.   About 175 calories, so you can add a little fruit, if desired.

Chop up fruit and pour yogurt on top and have a great summer breakfast right there and its low calorie. If you don't want to.freeze it, you can add some rolled oats for a parfait.

1 large egg =70 cal

5 cherry tomatoes = 20 cal

4 slices of Healthy Choice thin deli honey ham = 60

1 slice Nature's Own whole wheat toast = 50


Total calories: 200

to make, crack egg in bowl and beat -add salt and pepper to taste, add in tomato and ham place in microwave for 1 minute, stir, and microwave 30 seconds. Toast the bread. You are done with little mess to clean up. Breakfast is ready in about 2 minutes!

*If you don't want the egg to stick to the cooking vessel you can spray it with cooking spray - I generally don't because I don't have a can of spray at work where I make my breakfast.

I do this, too, although sometimes I get the same thing at Subway.  I also add fresh spinach and tomatoes.

These days I've been either having:

  • Nonfat low cal yogurt (80 calories, Archer Farms Target brand makes really thick and creamy ones - much better than Dannon Lite & Fit!) + Fiber Bar (120 calories, Kellog's Antioxidant FiberPlus bars come in chocolate chip, peanut butter, coconut fudge, etc!)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats + sliced apple cooked in with dash of cinnamon and sweetener
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats + sweetened with half a banana sliced in and sweetener
  • Smoothie: 1 cup almond milk (40 calories), 1/2 banana (approx 50 calories), 1 scoop protein powder of fiber powder (100 calories)
Pure protein bars 200 calories

I make up the filling for these and heat it up through the week...

2/3 cup Morningstar crumbles  80 calories

6 egg whites  < 100 calories

2 laughing cow cheese wedges (sundried tomato) 70 calories

1 cup finely shredded zucchini (drained) <20 calories

oregano and basil, salt and pepper to taste

270 calories, I generally can make 4-5 portion sizes out of this  60 or 70 calories.  I put this on low cal english muffins about 170 calories total.  My kids love it as well.

I also will add another cup of zucchini and taco seasoning and will eat these on tortillas.  SUPER good!

Scrambled egg with turkey bacon bits, small amt of reduced fat grated cheddar and fat free half and half served over 1/2 of a low calorie English muffin. Add herbs of your choice. Also fresh fruit, diced with carbmasters yogurt and low fat granola. Mmmmm!
Oatmeal with fruit or Greek yogurt with fruit.....make sure to have some sort of protein so u don't go into starvation mode or if you're like me I get cranky if I don't have protein

I live off Zone perfect bars for breakfast... I know the calories are low and I can eat on the cooking required! But looking for other 200 calorie breakfast ideas too!!!!

1 egg, 2 egg whites omelette with peppers (+whatever veggies you want) one-one slice of ham, one slice of turkey, onions and half a wedge of laughing cow/ half cup reduced fat shredded cheese. season to taste with salt and pepper. instead of using butter i use i can't believe its not butter spray to cook it in. Just mix up da eggs, then heat up the skillet, add the spray, add eggs, let them sit for a few secs, and stir the middle a bit, moving the liquid over the holes, then add veggies and meat. Its around 175 calories and i usually have a fruit salad. It adds up to about 200 calories! 


I actually use a recipe off of simple potatoes called garden veggie hash browns which is really tasty and for a full serving 141 calories.

# of servings : 5-6
Calories 141; Total Fat 7g; Saturated Fat 1g; Cholesterol mg; Sodium 231mg; Carbohydrate 19g; Dietary Fiber 2g; Protein 3g

1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet. Add onion. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes. Add zucchini, asparagus, red pepper and broccoli. Continue cooking 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp tender. 

2. Add 1 tablespoon oil and Simply Potatoes to skillet. Spread Simply Potatoes and vegetables in an even layer; press down lightly with spatula. Sprinkle with salt and garlic powder. Cook 6 to 7 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Turn Simply Potatoes over with spatula. Continue cooking 6 to 8 minutes or until Simply Potatoes are golden brown and tender, turning again if necessary.


With the veggie hash brown  i like to have scrambled eggs on the side  or sunny side up egg on top which will leave it at 210, but a tasty and filling breakfast for sure!
