What do you typically have for Breakfast?

I normally have 1 baby red potato, 1 egg, 4oz fresh mushrooms, a small onion, with pico de gallo. Sometimes I add some green pepper and or a slice of colby jack cheese, or pepper jack cheese. On days that I exercise I also add a slice of whole grain toast with whipped cream cheese.

I am a leftover freak. Love dinner the next day in the morning. I usually drink some homemade almond milk with some protein and some kind of veggie. I have to keep my breakfast very low carb because it sets the tone for my day.

Often I will have a salad. I can eat those any time of the day. But a fresh green salad with a boiled egg and some sunflower seeds is one of my go to's. I also will chop up some tomatoes and make a vinaigrette with onions and even some avocado. That is yummy.

One of my favorites right now is egg drop soup. That is very filling and warms me up (not that I need that right now, as we are having high temps) But winter is coming and I will appreciate it more.

I have a whole wheat English muffin, topped with whipped cream cheese with chopped kalamata olives and some dried Italian herbs mixed in.
I also like the new tortillas and flat breads that are low carb, with scrambled eggs and goat cheese.
I also enjoy steel cut oats, topped with a little half and half, 1 tablespoon of raw organic honey and Saigon cinnamon.
Like Huevos Rancheros, Substitute chorizo with diced lowfat turkey peperoni sauteed in a little extra virgin olive oil. scramble some eggs then fold them over the pepperoni and add some lowfat Mozzarella cheese and top with Your favorite heat level of Pace Picante Sauce. Use a couple of those low card tortillas or flat breads.

lately it's been Special K (the Protein version), with fresh raspberries, and low fat milk. Non-cereal days are whole wheat english muffin, 2 scrambled eggs, and a ready to eat turkey sausage.

That Special K Protein cereal is really good. It has a hint of cinnamon and reminds me of Life cereal. Only downside is it does soggy kind of quickly.

M-F (desk days) an orange usually about 3 hours after I get up, then maybe a quarter cup unsalted nuts every other hour ‘till lunch.
S/S (and other active, non-desk days) 2 eggs and some meat-type protein, with maybe a whole wheat bread serving if I plan on exercising in the morning.

I usually eat whatever I see in the fridge because in the morning. That's when I'm the hungriest. I need to start prepping food to eat though because that's how my blood sugar level gets me each time

I don't have special breakfast foods. I eat what ever I have in the fridge including left overs from dinner.

Planning ahead for breakfast so that you have healthy and good-tasting food available makes breakfast at home a lot easier. Joyce, I love that you don't limit yourself to typical breakfast foods, and instead enjoy any type of food first thing in the morning. ~Lynn @Glucerna

Glucerna food is food, for me there is no such thing as breakfast food. I have had anything from pork chops, crab cakes, chicken sphagetti anything left over from the night before can be my breakfast. There are times I have cereal, eggs, pancakes etc. for breakfast.

2 hard boiled eggs and 2 sausage links. I keep the eggs ready in the fridge and I buy Banquet's Heat N Serve pre-cooked sausage. Takes literally 2 minutes to fix, which I love. I'm not a very "spunky" morning person and by the time I get woke up good enough to be functional my body is saying "feed me NOW".

My eggs are fried with olive oil and I make pre cooked sausage patties/sausages from Wal Mart and pre-cooked bacon from Sam's club. I love breakfast meals but now I have to eat it with moderation.
