Do You Eat Breakfast?
Posted 18 January 2008 - 03:11 PM
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.

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.

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

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 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
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.
