You don’t have to eat a large breakfast, but some protein at least is good for “breaking your fast”. Sometimes I’ll have a cup of fat free or low fat cottage cheese with 6 oz of fresh berries (plus water, tea, milk, lots of fluids). Most berries come in 6 oz plastic clam shell packaging so there’s no measuring to do. I also need lactose free cottage cheese and add Stevia (natural sweetener) to sweeten the berries. It’s almost like eating dessert! Other times, I will have 98% fat free yogurt but it isn’t always enough or very hearty. Oatmeal with fruit will stick to your bones! And of course, there’re eggs, toast, bacon, pancakes, etc. I stay away from most cereals because of the added sugar and other stuff like preservatives. I hope this has been helpful.
I have branflakes and a bannana.
I also make a big skillet of potatoes, mixed vegetables, sausage, ham, etc. and freeze individual portions. Great by itself or you can add a fried egg, avocado, salsa on top. Or premake breakfast burritos and freeze them too.
Basically, get all the cooking out of the way because you're not going to want to do any of it in the morning. Make it super easy on yourself.
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
