I'm in a breakfast slump. Bowl of whole grain cereal and half a glass of OJ. Been the same damn thing for...like....3 years. I'm sick of it!! Got any ideas for me for something healty, light, and fairly tasty? Something I could eat real fast before going to work? I didn't even eat this morning I was so fed up with the same old thing. And now I'm feeling sorta sick. Not really hungry, just sorta "queezy". So I think I need to be eating something.

Race down to Denny's, brush past the hostess, hop the bar and yell "Slam! O-E!" over the pass bar. Have some OJ, too.

Instant oatmeal (I like the kind w. flax in it) w. some brown sugar! Yummm! Toast with almond butter and jam or honey and/or banana. Those are some of the variables I add to my speedy breakfast.

When you have more time, try toast with a thin slice of ham on it and a fried egg on top, it's really good!

Try making something the night before that you can heat up real fast or something. Cause quick and good dont always go together. The night before fry some eggs and get some low fat cheese and ham and put it on a whole wheat biscut, make 2-4 depending on how much you eat and in the moring you can put them in the microwave for a few seconds and they are great on the road on the way to work.

oatmeal, instant or the quick cook with two tablespoons of canned pumpkin. Use the canned pumpkin with the pumpkin pie spices already in it.

Maybe I'm the world's most boring man, or maybe I've found the perfect breakfast, but I've basically been eating the same thing for about ten years and I never tire of it. Just a bowl of Fruit&Fibre with a sliced banana and milk. Sometimes I add dried apricots and/or strawberry yoghurt.

I've tired of other cereals, but never this one. Don't know why. Every time it seems like a treat. Is that sad or what?

Add a bit of fruit to the cereal, either fresh or dried. Raspberries and blueberries are great in the summer, and a good ol' banana all year round.

Dried apricots rock my world too (though eat them in moderation... trust me )

Egg sandwich.

1-Large egg
1-Tbsp milk
1-tsp Canola oil
1-slice American cheese.
2-slices white or wheat bread.

Whip up egg in bowl with milk. Put oil in small 6" non-stick saute pan. Heat up on med-low. Add egg mix. Cook like an omelet, flip over so you have a round egg pancake. Toast bread in toaster. Put your egg on toast with slice of cheese.

Hold sandwich close to your mouth, and smell. Smells good doesn't it? Don't eat yet, just smell it for a minute while the cheese melts from the warm egg.

Ok, now eat sandwich. Take a bite, chew it, and swallow. Wash it down with some blueberry juice or something else if OJ is getting on your nerves. Besides, blueberry juice is great for the prostate.

Make sure you swallow the sandwich. It gets hard to put the whole thing in your mouth unless you swallow. And make sure you wash it down. Nothing worse than dry toast.

are you looking for something low cal/fat or anything new? If you're looking for anything than the sky is the limit. We can only begin to offer suggestions on what you can change. Good luck

I thought of another one that I love, which would probably make a nice recovery drink actually.

1 cup of 1% milk
1 banana
1.5-1 cup of frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon of honey (Splenda if on a diet)

Blend in blender.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!

I really like the Kashi GoLean frozen blueberry waffles. They are whole-grain, and have a good amount of protein too. I spread on some natural peanut butter and top it with a bit of pure maple syrup. Delicious!
