So I'm changing a lot of things around while trying to become healthier. One issue I had for the longest was that I didn't eat the most important meal of the day (breakfast). I'm just thinking that since I know I don't have the time to make breakfast in the morning (not counting weekends), I pick up breakfast at certain places. I don't go to fast food restaurants like burger king, or mcdonalds, but I do go to Dunkin Donuts once in a blue moon. I know certain gas stations like Wawa has food and makes it for you too. I had ordered a custom made salad with kale and grilled chicken. It was amazing.

I was wondering because I may go to places like Wawa a bit more for their food, what is some breakfast ideas that may be healthy. I know that i can order a bowl, burrito and small platters from them.

You’re better off getting a emulsifying blender and making a green smoothie. Takes less than 10 minutes including cleanup. Especially if you get the one that blends in the cup like one of the ninjas. Faster, healthier, and cheaper than stopping for breakfast.

As far as picking between what is offered at a breakfast place. I’m of no help because I can’t eat any of it. The cross contamination with eggs is a problem with my severe egg allergy.

It doesn't take five minutes to put together a bowl of bran flakes and put a couple of slices of wholemeal bread into the toaster, Pat. Put some Marmite or olive oil based spread on the toast. Skimmed milk on the cereal and a glass of fresh OJ to wash it all down with. That'll get you up and running for the morning.

Marmite is made from yeast extract so it's got a ton of B vitamins... although it's relatively high in salt, but that's only a problem if you spread it too thickly. A thin coating on the toast is sufficient. You'll be able to taste it, I promise you.

Good and healthy, very filling and it'll do wonders for your <ahem> 'regularity' too.

Get a packet of brazil nuts or walnuts for a mid morning snack, munch on some of those. About 80g is the recommended daily intake. You can crunch an apple with those which again, will fill you up nicely until lunchtime.

Bon appetit..!!

A portion of protein, a portion of good fat, and a portion of simple carbs (like the kind you find in potatoes).

One of my favorite breakfasts:

Peel one sweet potato and dice it, put in a baking pan, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper (add paprika if you want...it's delicious). roast in an oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, flip the potatoes and roast another ten minutes.

Meanwhile, you need your protein...some days I enjoy a kielbasa, sliced and heated in a pan (dip in brown mustard when you're eating it) or some eggs...scrambled is my favorite.

Add half an avocado for your good fat and sprinkle lightly with salt if you want (I eat it plain).

It sounds more time consuming than it is.

I usually have vegetable juice with it but orange or apple juice would be excellent as well.

I usually only eat half the potato which means I can save the other half, along with the remaining half avocado for the next day's breakfast!

Whatever you do, if you depend on breakfast for your calcium quota (which most do with milk), go easy on the grains and insoluble fiber. Otherwise all that calcium gets absorbed by the phytates in the fiber. You also want to separate your calcium and iron intake, for the same reason.

I usually fill up with a smoothie consisting of a cup of whole milk, a cup of low-fat kefir (for the probiotics), two servings of frozen fruit, and two servings of Carnation Instant Breakfast (or you can use some other nutrition and/or protein powder, but Carnation is cheaper). 700 calories.

My wife usually has a small side of bacon, egg, hash brown, etc which I will nibble on as well.

The "good fat" Eagle refers to is High Density Lipoprotein (HDL). What you need to avoid is the Low Density Lipoprotien (LDL).

Some people say it sounds funny that the High density version is OK, whereas the Low Density version is bad. I admit it can take a little getting your head around if you're not accustomed to monitoring these things in your diet, but it's worth thinking about and checking the labelling when you do your shopping.

I don't know what you have over there, but many of our supermarkets have adopted a traffic light system to cover things like saturates, etc. If it's Red, it's not good. Orange is "ok... sort of" and Green is good to go.

LDL and HDL refer to cholesterol. Studies have linked LDL to trans fats and HDL to unsaturated (mono and poly) fats. The jury is still out on saturated fats. Here labels indicate the percentages of each type of fat.

Breakfast of champions:

Monday through Saturday > Coffee

Sunday > Coffee sometimes followed (a couple hours later) by a Bloody Mary.

Dear Captain Cpap, Greetings and I like you. Check one for yes and two for no.

Anyhow, I think coffee with butter is the most important food of the breakfast. You should have some now. I will make it for you.

Long ago, I went to see my Auntie Karen three hours east of Memphis. Fortunately this time she wore clean clothes. My Auntie Karen explained to me how her diabetus went from a 100 down to zero because of her keto diet which included black coffee with butter and no sweetener.

Keto diet is good but if you do it you will be weak, angry, and mad at all you brothers and sisters who eat your donut in front of you. Thank you for your cooperation and the end. Shazam.

It's been a good 25 minutes since I posted on this thread.

Guess what? I'm drinking coffee. Ya'll will have to take my word for it, but I swear I'm drinking coffee this very moment aside from typing on my keyboard which is also happening this very moment.

Jeremy thinks I'm an actual retard. Damn son, I was born at night but not last night.

Micronutrient wise, my smoothie isn’t that far off from eagles breakfast.

I use pea protein powder, and cup soy milk. Baby spinach for my leafy green goodness. Kale is too bitter for me. Avocado for creamyness. I use frozen because it lasts longer and is faster. Then frozen berries (blue berry strawberries and/or cherry) and another sweet fruit like pineapple, mango or orange. If I have extra veggies I’ll toss them in like carrots,beets cucumber, etc.

Along with my heath issues, I connected with a dr and his diet plan. (Including the smoothie) caused me to drop a significant amount of weight. If you (or anyone) is interested I’ll share. I won’t be offended if you’re not. We all have to make our own decisions to be ready. I know if someone told me before I was ready I would of told them to f*** off. (Or nodded then ignored them if I was being polite).

I started reading this thread this morning and had to stop.

I cannot eat in the morning (or apparently think of food). I have to be up a few hours before I can eat a little. Coffee and OJ are OK.
Water - I may as well stand over the sink because it's coming right back at ya!

This all started coming on about 20 years ago. Before that I was a bowl of cereal junkie.

my normal breakfast is a bologna sandwich and diet pepsi. sometimes, two bagels with butter in convent oven. going shopping groceries in morning, I buy and eat large French bread for breakfast.

forks, nothing on a nice summer morning that I love and walking to grocery store. I always carry knife, fork, and spoon for a delicious roadkill on the side of street. sometimes, a good straw taste the juice out of the animal, hmmm good!

come on summer!

Same. I make my smoothie early before I leave (about 8) but don’t actually drink it until I’m at work after 10. I also have a late lunch, around 3 and late dinner, since I work until 6:30 and an hour commute.
