  • Carbs and protein are filling. So toast, some kind of meat and eggs, cereal, a glass of milk, a piece of fruit. You can add home fries or grits, pancakes. Something that gives you enough energy to move well through the morning. Something that stays with you.

  • Stay away from just carbs for breakfast. Simple carbs are the worst. (sugary cereals, etc.)
    I agree with Bmat about mixing a protein with complex carbs for keeping hunger away longest.

  • I love omelets with veggies, and All Bran fiber cereal topped with blueberries or other berries! That'll keep me going all morning into the afternoon.

  • Quinoa is a protein packed whole grain; it is the only plant based food with a complete chain of amino acids. This is my favorite (very filling) breakfast:

    Breakfast Quinoa
    NOTE: Quinoa must be rinsed extremely well or it will be bitter
    Cook 1 cup of quinoa in 1 cup of water and one cup of apple juice. Chill. Dice 2 small or 1 large apple small dice and add, add raisins and/or dried cranberries and walnuts or pecans- i just add them until it looks like enough, maybe 1/2 cup of each? Stir in vanilla yogurt to coat and make it bind together about 1- 1 1/2 cups. serve cold.

    Whole grain toast with peanut butter and banana is also very filling

  • I was going to say quinoa too! I use quinoa flakes, takes 90 seconds to cook. I make those, then mash a banana with cinnamon and mix it in and then top with milk(usually low fat coconut milk). It's really yummy!
