See, I had to drink protein shakes before and I could not force the thing down my throat And cereal bars make me feel sick... and I'm trying to cut back on the caffeine

I usually drink fruit juice and have a whole grain muffin, or bagel or something like that and yogurt.

Yeah well normally you'd omit the caffeine for the breakfast to be healthy. The PowerBar isn't a cereal bar per se, not like the normal brands on the market. It's more like an energy bar. I also eat yogurt too a lot in the morning.

Place a cup of plain yogurt in a bowl, put 6 ounces of frozen fruit or berries on top of it, sprinkle on some sugar substitute of choice if necessary, and place it in the refrigerator before you go to bed. In the morning, it's ready.

A healthy, full breakfast could be Eggbeaters or, my preference, Best of the Egg, turkey bacon, and whole grain toast, with butter and no sugar added fruit preserves.

Real oatmeal, right out of the big round carton, can be cooked in the microwave, just like the little packages can. Add fruit of choice, or cinnamon, and a little bit of sugar (brown or white) or sugar substitiute if desired, and it's just as good as the little packets, except you control the flavor, the sugar, the salt, etc.

I have a friend whose breakfast consists of a can of V-8, a banana, and a hard-boiled egg...healthy and quick.

my breakfast tends to be a variation on a theme every day. i have a smallish tupperware, about the size of a cereal bowl, that gets a handful of dry cereal (i go with big chunky shapes, like shredded wheat or homemade granola), a half handful of dried fruit or a sliced fresh fruit, and a half handful of nuts. varying each of the 3 ingredients keeps it from getting old. everything is bite-size (not too big, not too small as to require a spoon) for eating in the car on the way to work. super quick & healthy.

the weekend, of course, doesn't require the commute or the time crunch, so is more leisurely: bowl of plain yogurt with dried fruit/nuts mixed in and honey drizzled on top, +/- fresh fruit, +/- toast with warmed butter creamed with honey to dip it in.

See, to me, the food has to be different every day or I will stop eating. It's very easy for me to start skipping meals and very hard to start eating them again.

I have been on a steel cut oatmeal kick recently. It takes a while to make (about 30 minutes or so), but you can make up a big batch and store it in the fridge then just nuke to re-heat it. It is good so many different ways. You can have it with brown suger or with honey. You can have it with butter and salt. You can put dried fruit in or even frest fruit. It is enexpensive, healthy, and filling.

We make old fashioned oatmeal and a fruit smoothie almost every morning. If you eat a bowl of oatmeal and then a smoothie, you'll be very full! Its all good for you too.
