Which breakfast stays with you the longest?

I have two. Either two packets of instant oatmeal or bacon, eggs, toast. I use microwave bacon "four pieces", two eggs "fried" using Pam, and two pieces of honey wheat bread.

I need more ideas. I really need to get back on the wagon. I've been so bad.

I'm so happy for all of you who are working your programs and getting close to or are at goal weight. Congratulations.

Hugs, Joan

    I find that an egg sandwich sticks with me the longest. I have one egg over easy, canadian bacon, Thomas english muffin and sometimes a little cheese. I always have some fruit, too. I don't get hungry when I have that as opposed to something else.

    I think it depends on the person.
    My breakfast consists of cereal with lowfat milk. There are 3 healthy cereals that I mix together. I add wheat germ, blueberries, almonds or walnuts, Then I On the side, I have red grapes and half a Lenders' bagel.
    Sometimes if I'm really hungry, I'll have a Special K protein snack bar.

    Depending on the intensity of the exercise is the key to my breakfast. I wish that I did like oatmeal. It is so good for you.

    I love a '2 egg' omlet of Egg beaters . . . . with some fresh veggies (whatever I have) broccoli, mushrooms, green onions, caulifower, green beans, tofu or red/green peppers (you get the idea) with a couple of slices of whole grain toast with just a touch of margarine.

    If I am REALLY hungry I will add some leftover chicken or bacon bits.

    oatmeal of course. . . old fashioned... never instant .. in the micro with some nuts - flax and almond milk and dried blueberries... is an old standby.

    Have fun. STEP OUT 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 and explore the possibilities.
    They are endless.

    I'd choose the oatmeal for cholesterol reasons. Is that any issue for you?

    A few ideas for you:

    1) oatmeal and fruit (stir in some flaxseed and/or nuts)

    2) berries, yogurt and granola

    3) grapefruit, whole grain toast, almond butter (lower in fat that peanut butter)

    4) fresh fruit salad (plain or with yogurt)

    5) scrambled eggs w/veggies (peppers, onion, broccoli, etc.)

    6) low-fat cottage cheese and fruit

    Also, see my comments on your page and Spark mail :)

    Breakfast is the absolute HARDEST for me!! Partially because I never feel hungry in the mornings and partially because I'm always running late for work and don't want to take the time to actually make something. I know for sure granola bars leave me starving two hours later! I told my husband yesterday that I might start making breakfast sandwiches and stuff to freeze and just pull out in the mornings. Wish I had more advice!!
