Breakfast Ideas

I am trying to lose weight and, lately, have been seriously running out of breakfast ideas. I used to have a hard-boiled egg and croissant but cut that out due how caloric croissants are. I can't abide cereal of any kind, oatmeal or any other mush with water or milk. Do any of you have any ideas? Everything I Google is the type of stuff that either requires serious cooking or is milky.

Auntie needs a sidecar with scrambled eggs au saumon on toast with some ground pepper. Some black coffee and a slow, slow read of the obituaries in the morning paper.

Just make an omelette and skip everything else except more black coffee or tea. This will be a zero carb breakfast or almost.

I've been eating a cup of red grapefruit slices and a cup of plain Greek yogurt lately. Not a big cereal, oatmeal fan. Not big on eggs either so this fast snack suits me. I have herbal tea with that. No coffee.

Instead of a hard boiled egg OP, scramble it with some sort of vegetable--spinach, broccoli, kale

My go to is a slice of whole wheat seeded toast with peanut butter and a little raspberry preserve, and a mug of tea. The bread I get is 70 calories, with the peanut butter and preserves it's a breakfast under 300 calories and it fills be up until lunch time.

Get some low calorie bread and have with your egg. Or make a turkey sandwich. Peanut butter on toast. French toast with sugar free syrup (or none, just a lot of cinnamon.)

Rye is lower on the glycemic index - maybe rye toast or Wasa lite-rye crisps. If you don't like rye flatbread, try sourdough - it's pretty low glycemically as well. So are strawberries - I like to keep frozen ones and microwave a bowl of them for a minute - yum. Peaches are also quite low. But I forgot you can't eat fruit.

Just add a slab of steak to your eggs? And maybe some beans, made without sugar, if you want carbs.

Intermittent fasting as a lifestyle is very sustainable and healthy. Do you really think our ancestors ate as much as we do now? Breakfast was intended by Kellog.

by Anonymous reply 2802/20/2021

After a cancer diagnosis, anutritionist gave me a diet worksheet. It involved many small meals throughout the day to ensure a balanced diet. Breakfast was a hard boiled egg, one piece of bread/toast, a small orange (Clementines are perfect) and a yogurt of no more than 100 calories. I lost 30 pounds in 3 months and kept it off. Breakfast is still pretty much that though I’ve moved on from the 3 Graham crackers and skim milk at 3:on.

Break Fast means to eat something after the overnight fasting, which should really start about 6pm or 7pm the day before when you are meant only to have a snack.

You need nurtrious foods. Can you do huevos racheros in the morning? Eggs, Beans and Salsa. Make the salsa yourself. Chop together tomatoes and clilanto (herbs very good for you). You can add in peppers and onions, if you wish. This is healthy. You get those healthy legumes.

For dinner, lentil soup. ( healthy legumes) For dessert/snack: OATMEAL.

Spinach and artichoke heart omelette or scramble. Any sort of veggie-egg dish, including a fritata.

Greek yogurt with a touch of maple syrup to sweeten it slightly, with chopped nuts. If you want yogurt buy plain yogurt and sweeten it yourself with something other than refined sugar, and don't sweeten it much. Just add a teaspoon of something to cut the sourness.

Middle Eastern breakfast with pita bread, cheese or hummus, olives, and nibbly veg like cucumber or pepper slices.

Bigass fruit smoothie, that includes active culture unsweetened yogurt for the protein and probiotics.

Poached egg on buttered English muffin. Little slice of ham or a touch of hollondaise sauce optional.

And of course when I want a big-ass breakfast, I make a modified "Full English" fry-up. Fried egg, fried mushrooms and tomatoes, slice of toast, possibly some beans (I like beans), and meat-eaters will want to add a bit of bacon, ham, or sausage. If this has more veggies than eggs and bacon, and you don't use too much fat in the frying up, it's actually not that calorific, but it sure is hearty.

And yes, putting salsa on eggs is a great way to liven up an everyday egg! And salsa is made of vegetables, and is very low-cal!

I don't care for sweet breakfasts. Late I have been having what I call Eggs Terrazo.

In a mini casserole I put 1/2 cup of salsa, and spread it around.

I had two beaten eggs.

I cut a few thin slices of extra sharp cheddar off a block, place them on top of the egg and salsa mixture, and tuck them under the surface of the egg/salsa mixture.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 in my countertop oven.

When it is done the eggs will be set, but not overly firm, and it will look like yellow and red terrazzo.

Tasty, full of protein and vibrant flavor, lots of vegetables, and pretty low in calories. You can add a little cooked turkey sausage or turkey bacon if you want.

During summer, when it's too hot to cook, I make a lot of sandwiches for breakfast, open-faced or with two slices. Peanut butter and jam, avocado and cheese, cheese and chutney, hummus and tomato (or cucumber or radish), whatever. Back when I ate meat it was ham and cheese or chicken and chutney, with iced tea that I'd put in the fridge the night before.

People in South America eat sandwiches for breakfast, when I was in Chile hotels would put out breakfast buffets of bread and sliced meats and cheeses, all the sandwich fixings. Plus cake, of all things.
