    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.
