on the egg in a basket...we call it an hole in the bucket... don't fry your bread in oil, Cut hole using a glass, butter both sides of the bread and both sides of the hole you cut out. toast both sides of bread and hole in a skillet, after toasted remove, break an egg in the skillet, (you can use pam spray so it doesn't stick), drop the toast onto the egg making sure the yolk is in the center of the hole... use the round cut out hole to dunk into the yolk.. save calories by using lighter ingredients.

Interesting article however in my opinion many of these ideas have far too many unhealthy food items in them.Whole grains are not all they are cracked up to be with regards to good health and anything wheat based is definitely not good for you.Any how each to their own. I am a Type II diabetic and would certainly not entertain eating many of these suggested breakfasts as many would provide a rapid sugar spike in the blood stream. For my breakfast i eat either boiled red or black rice as low glycemic index compared to white rice,then i mix together with chopped onion,capsicum,red kidney beans or black beans(cooked),diced lean bacon,ginger(fresh chopped)minced garlic,fresh hot peppers,sesame oil and himalayan pink salt and ground black pepper and fry long enough in pan to just cook the meat and vegetable content.A bit fiddly but i usually cook enough for two or three breakfasts.As a result of changing to this type of breakfast i have lost several kilos and my diabetes readings have improved. I also find i tend to eat a lighter lunch as i remain fuller for longer and also eat less for dinner. The idea of this type of breakfast originated on my annual holidays to Bali, as the first time i went, i came home feeling a lot better and somewhat lighter than when i arrived there,purely from eating Asian type foods in lieu of Western type foods
Seems like an awful lot of carbs (and starchy carbs at that) with little protein. Definitely lacks staying power.

I lost weight on the McDougall Program, but I couldn't do it anymore. It's so expensive buying food for the household and food for myself too. This diet was no oil, no eggs, no meat. anything to do with coming from an animal. But it's hard to eat my bowl of vegies and potatoes while everyone else is eating a steak on the grill. As far as exercising goes? I work from 2pm to 10:30pm, I have to unwind a little after work and by the time I go to bed it's 3 am, so the next morning I'm too tired and sore to even move. I clean at a medical college plus a private home once a week and I do not sit down the entire day. So I guess my weight gain came from these work hours, eating late in the evening or after midnight is really what happened to me. Plus menopause.
people that works nights and come home at 7 or 8 am like my husband will eat anything for breakfast like the casserole, pork chops, steak, rice,pasta, anything. Me? I can't eat none of that early in the morning

Who on Earth eats a casserole for breakfast???? Far to weird for England.
So many of these ideas have bread or bread like products (waffles). Because of swallowing issues I cannot have bread or anything like bread. I manage to eat two breakfasts every day (a small one at 5:00 a.m. to get me going and a larger one at about 8:00 a.m. when I am hungry). I wish that the article had provided more suggestions on things with no bread type items.

I like this article...but I notice a lot of these articles are very 'mumsy'...not everyone who eats healthy is necessarily a mum. I'm a 19 year old Briton and I certainly don't have kids yet! I like my Daily Spark emails though :-)
Just droppin in to say Hi to all, and wish everyone a wonderful day, and have a Deluxe time loosing all the weight you need to and to reach your goals...i have 80 pounds to loose, but i want to do it at 10lb. intervals...small goals reach large goals without being frustrated or drop back into being depressed....i'm excited & looking forward to seeing and feeling like the real me who is hidden right now from this extra weight, but i am a VietNam Vet., i am a colan cancer survivor, dies for 10 days on life support, and was in a coma for 28 days...i am a miracle to be here with you now.. Peace & Love to you all!!! Happy Loosing, and Happy enjoying the newest you!!!.

There is nothing bad about egg yolks; they are the most nutritious part!
"By throwing out the yolk and only eating egg whites, you're essentially throwing out the most nutrient dense, antioxidant-rich, vitamin and mineral loaded portion of the egg. The yolks contain so many B-vitamins, trace minerals, vitamin A, folate, choline, lutein, and other powerful nutrients... it's not even worth trying to list them all."

IIRC, we can't post links on SP so if you want to read the entire excellent article, just google it.

Suggestion for non sugar lovers for breakfast; An Ideal filling savoury breakfast, non-canned cooked beans mixed with pinch of salt, squeeze of lemon, olive oil and mix them and dip to eat with some vegies aside like cucumber or tomatoes or carrots or lettuce or water cres.........ooooooh yum Never skip breakfast, soooooooo many yummy options.
I agree whole heartedly with the "shakers." I've been drinking one for breakfast for about 7 years now and know that they boost my energy level way above people half my age. Mine has a whey protein, stevia sweetened protein powder (now gluten free too), super greens, flax seed, greek yogurt and whatever fruit I'm in the mood for all blended with almond milk. Yum_my!! I mix about 4 servings at a time and just leave them in the blender. Don't forget to add a good probiotic. Mine has 24 billion live bacteria from 12 strains. Perfect digestive health.
