Healthy Breakfast Ideas

What do you all eat for breakfast? I was reading an article in More magazine and it had a lot of good ideas for healthy breakfast choices. There was a recipe for a Greek omelet wrap that looked amazing! It had eggs, feta cheese, artichoke hearts and red peppers, all combined in a whole weat tortilla. Any other good recipes?

I make fruit smoothies using frozen yogurt, orange juice, and whatever fruits I have on hand, which is usually blueberries, strawberries, rasberries and bananas. Toss it all in the blender and viola! YUM!!

By the way, frozen fruit works just as well as fresh fruit.

Since I quit smoking and drinking coffee I began eating breakfast. Usually it's a Vitamin Water or Gatorade, a banana and a granola bar or buttered roll. I'm pretty tired of the granola and rolls so I'm getting into those Total cereals.

Yum! The fruit smoothies sound great! The article has listed a recipe for a fruit and yogurt parfait, which I also want to try.

1/2 cup Fat free, low sugar vanilla yogurt, frozen berry medley, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup of your favorite juice (I use Orange/Pineapple) or freshly squeezed orange juice, a few ice cubes...whip it up in the blender and you have a healthy breakfast.

OPTIONAL: + 1 tablespoon of vanilla flavored whey protein powder

Buck Wheat pancakes with fruit yogurt and fresh fruit on top instead of butter and syrup also really good on butter milk pancakes/ Waffles.

I try to eat a breakfast with alot of protein (at least 25 g of protein). I usually have a smoothie (made with yogurt, banana, frozen berries, milk and protein powder, flaxseed, etc) and a piece of whole grain toast. In the winter I'll make steel cut oats and a smoothie. On the w/ends, I'll make scrambled eggs and bacon with fruit and toast. Usually I do a big breakfast on Sunday, either a quiche or whole grain pancakes and sometimes scones (which I absolutely love but they head straight for my hips).

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day - thats for sure!

We like breakfast sandwiches made from eggs (husband prefers Eggbeaters egg whites); turkey bacon, turkey sausage or turkey ham; & low-fat or fat-free cheddar on toasted whole-wheat rolls.

Also do omelets with virtually the same ingredients (minus the rolls, of course).

During the week, I'm not much of a breakfast person, but hubby always has whole-grain cereal with fresh fruit.
