As stated in the subject, I do not like eggs. During the week, breakfast is very difficult for me to choose. Also, I am lactose intolerant. I have been living off of Double Fiber English Muffins, Soy Yogurt and Baked Apple Oatmeal cups. Although, I have been losing weight, that menu is getting very old. Monday through Friday, breakfast is eaten in the car on the way to work.

Any ideas on something new?

If you stop eating breakfast in your car you'll have a lot more options available to you.

cereals w/ lactose free milk or soy/rice/almond 'milk'
waffles w/ PB and honey
fruit and nuts

I also do a protein shake in the morning.

Protein shakes are quick and easy and you can change them up daily by adding in a different fruit. I also like the instant oatmeal with some fruit addded or a touch of cinnamon and soy milk. I also add a tbsp of egg whites ( you can buy just egg whites) and throw that in my shakes for a different low fat protein.

Sometimes I add sugar free jello to my shakes to give them a different flavor without many calories...then I have a piece of fruit for a snack before lunch.

How about waffle's? I spritz mine with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray. I also like the WW chocolate muffins with fresh Strawberries. Or try those Arnold's Thins with Canadian bacon and a slice of 2% or fat free cheese.

I made this baked banana oatmeal. It includes some skim milk, but I only had a 1/2 cup so compensated with applesauce. It makes a bar that's tasty but pretty low in cals. It's like a chewy granola bar but without all the nasty preservatives and yuk.

You can cut it up when you make it and wrap each piece in plastic, then grab from the fridge. You can put in whatever fruit you like. This makes 4 portions, but you can cut them smaller.

2 cups oats (old fashioned, not instant)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
(Mix dry ingreds)

2 bananas, sliced (save 1/2 banana for top or use other fruit to or instead)
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup skim milk (or soy, etc. or you can try w/out or add more applesauce)
(MIx wet ingreds, mix with dry ingreds. Pour into 8x8 pan. Slice last 1/2 banana and distribute on top.)

Bake at 350 in an 8X8 baking dish (lined with parchment or lightly greased/sprayed) for 20 mins.The orig recipe said to sprinkle with brown sugar and broil at the end for 3-4 mins but obviously this adds cals and sugar.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.

It's so funny that most of you guys recommended Protein Shakes. I just recently bought this chocolate weight loss protein powder. Monday through Friday, I have just been mixing it with water and drinking it before lunch. On Saturdays and Sundays, I usually make a smoothie out of light vanilla soymilk, whatever frozen fruit I have and a drop of honey. Because of your suggestions, I'm thinking to combine the protein powder with the smoothie since it only takes almost no time to make. Thanks!

I like the Carrot Raisin muffins on the "Fat Resistance Diet" book. I make two batches, freeze them, then eat one here and there dunked in a cup of milk.

I also do not like eggs, and sometimes have difficulty finding low fat protein. What about turkey? I can't handle protein shakes myself, so I go for a whole wheat english muffin sandwich with some turkey and low fat cheese on it. It wil keep you full, and it's pretty easy to eat in the car! I don't know if there's something you could do instead of the cheese to make it more tasty...maybe some cranberry sauce?
Good luck!

Mmm...I loooove doing whole grain eggo waffles with peanut butter. Get your protein and whatnot that way...and its like a treat! Smile

Another option is oatmeal w/ soy milk - if you like soy...if not, try rice milk!

Try using nuts for your protein, too...so you could do a handful of almonds in the AM, and then maybe an apple to fill the rest of the void...?

For quick breakfasts in the car, try Fiber One Chewy bars (oats and chocolate are the best, IMO)

For Breakfast I like having a tortilla with peanut butter and banana in it.
The tortilla I use is the brand: "La Tortilla Factory"
And it's only one point! so It makes a good breakfast Smile
Tortilla: 1 point
Peanut Butter(1tbs): 2 points
Banana: 2 points.

We eat fruit a lot, or cold meat. If we've had chicken breast for the night before sometimes we cook double and have it next morning. Or nuts and dried fruit are handy for an on the go snack. Have you tried turkey bacon?

My favorite is considered a little "odd" by some people but it is my favorite breakfast (fast and easy too). Depending on what type of English muffins you use, it is only about 3 points (give or take)

1/2 of an English muffin
Spicy/brown mustard
1 heated slice of Canadian Bacon

This is especially yummy with a good cup of coffee! Smile

Also go to the health food store and purchase salt that contains minerals, i.e. Celtic Salt Brand. And if you prefer you can get some chicken broth too.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
