I find it hard to stay with me, if I don't
have meat. Maybe will try turkey sauage.

Most mornings I have Special K plus protein, ff milk and a banana. On weekends when I have more time, I will cook steel cut oats for the week. I put in craisins, cut up dried apricots and walnut pieces. I flavor it with cinnamon and vanilla. Then I take a bowlful each morning and heat in microwave. Yummmmmmm.

I start my weekdays with oatmeal made with skim milk and toasted walnuts. I add some cinnamon and vanilla. I cook enough on Sunday to fill five individual serving containers so I can grab one in the morning and take it to work where I heat it in the micro, add another dash of skim milk and a packet of splenda. Weekends are my problem. I find myself sitting down with my coffee and then just jumping into what needs to be done and forgetting to fill my stomach until I've developed a headache.

Any suggestions?

Pumpkin oatmeal recipe does sound wonderful, but I don't use Splenda.

The pumpkin oatmeal looks great! I make a crock pot steel cut oatmeal with dried cranberries, apricots, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. I have been looking for something new. Thanks!

Because I take breakfast to work with me, I need portable, I boil eggs, I make flax seed/WW muffins, make steel cut oats (divided into 1 serving bowls, I store in fridge with a dab of fat free or coconut or almond milk on it) peanut butter & jam on WW bread or in a pinch I grab greek yogurt or string cheese....on the week-ends it is usually something different

I have been eating Chobani yogurt or oatmeal. My new favorite is egg beaters with mushrooms and peppers and Sara Lee 45 calorie bread and low calorie jam. Very good!!!!

I am going to have to find a 12-step group for this recipe: Crock Pot Pumpkin Steel Cut Oats.
I am seriously addicted! I toss it in the crock pot at night and wake up to a delicious hot breakfast. It's also great cold, with a little bit of maple syrup on it. Kind of like bread pudding but good for you.

Breakfast is definitely a must. I enjoy oatmeal and have recently discovered greek yogurt with granola and honey and some kind of fruit on the side.

I totally agree. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for me. I'm also trying to find new ideas. What I usually eat is 1 egg+1 egg white scrambled, turkey sausage, wrapped in a tortilla with salsa. It's delicious but boring after 6 months! Next week I'm having oatmeal and then french toast. You have to shake it up sometimes!

I treat breakfast as the fuel to start my day. It gives me the energy to start my day. I treat it as planning my whole day. Trying to look for variety and branching out to not eat the same thing everyday for breakfast.
