Smarter Health: Fast Breakfast Fixes

Posted by   + Show Post

A sesame bagel and cream cheese. This not-very-rich-in-nutrients combo is what I've been having for breakfast every morning for about 4 months now. I don't need a nutritionist to tell me this isn't the best way to start my day; but it is the easiest, tastiest, and most filling option I have. Who has time for breakfast in the morning?
A long time ago, I was way more creative with my breakfasts. Here's some of my all-time favorites that I should probably get back to--and fast!

Waffle & Cottage Cheese This is one of the tastiest morning treats. Try whole grain waffles with a 4oz container of low-fat cottage cheese, and blueberries. Sprinkle a tablespoon of almonds on there for added protein.

Peanut Butter, Honey, and Banana Two slices of whole grain bread (the kind with the added fiber), honey, half a banana sliced up and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Very filling.

Egg McMuffin  One egg, one slice of low fat cheese, one whole grain english muffin. A side of fruit, like strawberries or melon. (If I have time, a scrambled egg plus spinach or peppers makes this even healthier and more filling.)

Egg & Spinach Pie Mix egg beaters (or something similar), feta cheese, spinach, chopped peppers and diced ham and pour into a baking dish that was sprayed with olive oil (or PAM). Bake till cooked through. Eat all week long with a slice of whole grain toast, or an english muffin.

What's your typical breakfast like?

 mostly cereal, bagels, oatmeal, or something else real quick.  I do like the ideas you posted though.  I get tired of the same old thing all the time.

 I am stuck on South Beach Diet Protein Ceral Bars.  I usually get Pbutter, or cinnamon raisin.  I eat one every day w/ my coffee.  I usually like something more on the sweet side in the morning, but these are low carb, and low calorie.

 We have a lot of whole wheat waffles with PB, and I love baking ham and cheese quiches.
