I usually make egg white omelette with cherry tomatoes, red onion, avocado, bacon, spinach, and it is really filling, and I usually fill it with cottage cheese

I have to eat breakfast. It is part of the three meals and three snacks I'm allowed on South Beach and since it has worked for me this far, I go ahead and eat it. I have low fat plain yogurt mixed with a portion of mixed nuts, a tsp of vanilla extract and a packet of Equal. I also have some unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk with a packet of Equal or unsweetened Chai Tea mix. I change it up every once in a while and have cottage cheese instead of the yogurt. Other breakfasts I enjoy are bacon and eggs, turkey sausage and eggs, an omelet made with non-fat cheddar cheese, bell pepper, onion and crumbled turkey sausage and one egg and 1/2 cup of egg whites. Sometimes if I've had a particularly good dinner I'll have it for breakfast.

150mls apple juice, handful of frozen blueberries, a banana, tablespoon of ground flax seed, a big spoonful of low fat Greek yogurt and blend into a lovely big smoothie. Nutritious, filling, not too high in calories and keeps you going for a few hours.

Welcome to the site PK's Grammie., Don't know about you, but for me, I gave up all processed foods many years ago and have never missed them, I do know that If i was a junk food junkie, there's no way that I could eat just a bit and not crave more. There's usually chemicals and sugars that create your cravings so there's no such thing as just a little.

Rice cakes are horrid no matter what flavorings are on them! lol,

I eat an egg and a strip of bacon or a sausage (both from a local humanely raised farm, grass fed, no nitrates) every morning. My cholestrol is just fine and I did lose all my weight eating this way.

good luck to all, some great breaky ideas here.

PK's Grammie, why not , for 1 day, try not to eat simple carbs, Don't tell yourself never again, just say, for today, i'm going to enjoy the flavor of this egg with this sausage (or two) and maybe a slice of tomato. Baby steps.. one meal at a time and see how you feel. It's brain games at the beginning. But once you stop you eventually lose the cravings for the simple carbs. Eat slow, enjoy every bite, and see if you don't feel full for at least 4 hours.

Simple carbs are the ones quickly absorbed by the body and turned into quick energy but then a quick down too! White flour, white sugar, white starches.
Simple carbohydrates are simple sugars with a chemical structure that is composed of one or two sugars. They are refined sugars that have very little nutritional value to the body, and therefore, it's advisable that their consumption be limited to small quantities. In comparison to complex carbohydrates, simple carbohydrates are digested by the body more quickly, because they have a very simple chemical structure.

There are two types of simple carbohydrates: monosaccharides and disaccharides. Monosaccharides consist of only one sugar, and examples include fructose, galactose and glucose. Disaccharides consist of two chemically-linked monosaccharides, and they come in the form of lactose, maltose and sucrose.

Foods that contain simple carbohydrates include table sugar, products with white flour, honey, milk, yoghurt, candy, chocolate, fruit, fruit juice, cake, jam, biscuits, molasses, soda and packaged cereals. Despite the fact that simple carbohydrates do not contain enough essential nutrients, some foodstuffs such as fruits may still be good for you.

Room full of wee ones? lol, that does require energy. Take a baggie with some nuts and raisins and other dried fruits and seeds. I'm always amazed at how a few almonds keeps the hunger away from me.

Bagging up some nuts right away, plus some watermelon cubed, so its quick to eat and filling and hydrating. Going with leftovers and going without bread tomorrow. Gotta start somewhere! mummydee, thanks so much for helping a newbie with such wonderful guidance.

One thing I've missed has been my pancakes. Usually do Bisquick gluten free as hubby loves them, but I got a recipe using 4 tbs of golden flax meal (thanks Raven), 1 tsp. of baking powder, 1 egg, 2 tbs of water. I blend them together and allow it to sit for a few minutes. It will thicken. I add a little more water then spoon it on a hot griddle. You'll have to spread them out with a spoon. Cook slowly until almost brown on both sides. Really good. And on the fluffy side. Many people prefer to do it in the microwave on a plate, but I find it to be too slickery for my tastes. I've eaten them plain or with butter and a little sugar free strawberry preserves. Can even use sugar-free syrup.

would you share that recipe with golden flax meal for pancakes; worth a try. That would also work as a 'meatless Monday meal'

4 tbs. of golden flax seed meal--Bob's Red Mill(or other brand if available)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
2 tbs. of water

Mix together and allow to sit. It will thicken. Add a little more water.

Spoon on griddle and spread it out. Cook on both sides. A little longer then regular pancakes.

That's it. Very Happy

egg white omelette or frittata ... they sell 100% eggwhites at the grocery store .. add in as many veggies as you want. I usually throw in about 2-3 oz chicken breast also. Usually averages around 300 cals and beacuse its mianly protien, it leaves you full until lunch.

I usually have fruits like a banana.
But whenever I make breakfast i try to add a few vegetables to the omelette.A little of spinach, cheese tomatoes,chicken, meat, etc.Mostly any left overs from the previous night.
Sandwiches are another great option, you can try various combinations according to your taste.I always try to add a few extra veges here and there.The same thing with tacos.
My niece loves the different twists i add to her pizzas.The same trick can be tried out with smoothies too.
Just try a different herbs and spices. Just cut on oil and cheese.
I love to cook so I just keep experimenting.Hope you get some ideas
Happy cooking...
