Breakfast HELP!!

I'm not sure if this is the right section or not, but every morning I always wake up not hungry and usually don't eat unless there is some thing thats really tasty (most of the time that means fast food or frozen pastries because I am so rushed). My parents don't even let me get them anymore because it's so unhealthy, but they still want me to eat breakfast. Are there any quick meals I can make in the morning or the night before. I've tried breakfast burritos but mine are always bland.

Thumbs up breakfast the most important meal of the day

scrambled eggs with add ins are quick and tasty. get the add ins done the night before, chopped onions, cheese, salsa, mushrooms cook add ins a bit first and then scramble the eggs and add cheese. toast and u have it.

there are many healthy foods available in store. ie bran muffins, frozen waffles made with whole wheat. cereal is always a fall back. get what u like u will not eat the ones made of twigs and sticks, oatmeal, butter and brown sugar are good.

don't know how much actual time u have in am. that would make a difference in what i would suggest.

this morning , i had bacon. german crepes(lemon juice and pwd sugar) store bought crepes, that heat in micro and a big glass of milk.

babe

Ma, ma, ma, my mama said that barbequed gator is ma, ma, mighty tasty in the morning, Waterboy. Wash it down with some fine H2O.


It doesn't take long to fry an egg and put it on a piece of toast either

I usually have a peanut butter and jelly or turkey and provolone sandwich for breakfast. Who says you have to eat "traditional" breakfast food?

I will definitely have to try that garlic. BBQ gator is always bountiful lol. But yea babetoo. I think the addins the night before should do the trick (sounds like a good combo too) eggs dont take long to cook at all. I usually have about 15mins. to cook and eat. 20-25 if I'm lucky.

I am with you, Waterboy. I cannot eat first thing in the morning, but I feel better if I start the day with some energy. I drink bottled yogurt/fruit drinks (not sure if you can buy them where you are), but you can always throw some yogurt, fruit and milk in a blender and make your own. Not bad.

A toasted bagel with cream cheese or a toasted sandwhich with peanut butter and your favorite jam. Eat it right away or later with a nice cup of coffee or hot chocolate when you feel like it, it's still good. A yogurt to go along is good as well.

Well, I don't eat breakfast most of the time; but, if I was in a hurry I might make some toast (love 12-grain bread) and spread with 2 TBS of peanut butter. It's extremely healthy and will fill you up!

What makes you feel satisfied for breakfast? Protein? Carbohydrates? Personally I need protein for breakfast. Some days I don't feel ready for breakfast - my body is awake but my stomach isn't! So on those days, I grab a piece of fruit and a slice of cheese and eat the two together. Zero preparation and I can walk around or do chores or even be leaving the house while I nibble on the two.

I seldom eat cereals as I don't like them and they don't sustain me. I would rather eat a big meal for brekky, skip lunch and then eat "lunch" at dinner time. Leftovers are also good for brekfast and then don't need to worry about lunch.
