Do You Eat Breakfast?

Recommended Posts

T. Jean's Life Porridge

 

2 c water

1/4 cup steel oats

1/4 cup whole oats (These are hard to find. I substitute rolled oats.)

2 tbs oat bran

1-2 tbs ground flax seed

1/4 t cinnamon

1 tbs flaxseed oil

raw agave nectar to sweeten (They sell this at whole foods.)

Serving size equals 3/4-1 cup

 

Bring water to a boil. Add steel cut oats. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add whole oats. Simmer for 5 more minutes. Remove porridge from heat. Stir in oat bran, cinnamon, and flax oil. Drizzle with agave nectar of 100% maple syrup.

 

For variety, top wth shaved almonds, chopped apples, fresh berried, dried cranberries or goji berries.

Brown sugar and cinnamon pop-tarts were all I used to eat for breakfast, until Matt told me they were so bad for me. I was like, what? Pop-tarts? Bad for you? Nooooooooo. But anyway, I only eat themoccastionally now instead of daily.

 

Since I joined WW last week, one of the breakfasts they suggest is yogurt, granola and fruit. And I agree with you on the yogurt. It's kinda nasty. But when you add the fruit and granola, it's surprisingly good. I might even call it delicious.

i have a nutrigrain waffle (cinnamon) with a little bit of peanut butter and an orange or banana. it's good - and not too heavy. A

 

Also, try putting granola or Kashi cereal in your yogurt - it helps with the gross texture.

I LOVE breakfast! And of course I love the kind that's bad for you the most. :-) I'm a sucker for waffles, bacon, hashbrowns etc. Yum! But obviously I really only have time for that on the weekends.

 

For weekdays I'm a cereal girl. I eat the kashi cereals, the Smart Start and vanilla almond Special K. Those are probably the ones I buy most. But I also LOVE plain ol' Crispix, rice krispies and cheerios...esp the multi grain ones! If I get those more plain cereals though, I usually make sure to get some bananas to slice up in them. Also, instant oatmeal and the kashi hot cereal are good.

 

In a real pinch I'll shake up some slim fast or whey protein shake on my way out the door. Although I prefer blending those in the blender w/ fruit if I have time.

 

Also, honey wheat bagels w/ a little peanut butter...Mmmmmm!

I used to not eat breakfast but have been better about it lately and I have noticed that it keeps me from pigging out during the day.

 

I usually eat 1 of 3 menus for breakfast:

1. Cereal with Lowfat Milk and Fruit

2. Kashi Granola Bar or Fiber 1 Chocolate Granola Bar and Banana

3. Oatmeal

 

I have a great baked oatmeal recipe made with apples and dried fruit. You can grab a square so it's like a muffin or heat it and serve with milk. PM me if you'd like it.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
