Does anyone have any low cal, low fat breakfast food that they would like to share?? I'm a pretty picky eater, but I would like to change it up from scrambled eggs or an egg and cheese sandwhich. Usually protein is what I need to stay full longer, but will to try out high fiber foods. Any suggestions would be great!

I eat the same thing for breakfast every day - Kashi Go Lean Crunch (Regular)! It suprisingly tastes GREAT and for 1 cup it is 190 calories or 143 for 3/4 of a cup. It's not plain tasting and actually has some sweetness to it. Tons of fiber and protein really keep you fuller longer (not just a hoax from TV). It's great to have if you need a quick breakfast and to run out the door. If you're looking for something easy for busy mornings, I'd recommend this cereal to anyone.

For me, it's all about eating my breakfast in shifts. Within 30 minutes of waking up I have a piece of fruit, generally a banana and half a serving of peanut butter. Then sometime, usually two or so hours after, I'll have something around 200 or so calories. Right now I'm loving Bob's Red Mill 5 grain plus flaxseed rolled whole grain hot cereal with some almond milk and brown sugar, and I eat that cold. I'm usually fine till lunch, but will sometimes have a cup of coffee with more almond milk before that.

But I'll admit, this only works for me because I can take the time to eat in shifts.

I find that oatmeal made with milk, instead of water, keeps me satisfied for a long time- I think the extra protein in the milk alongside the fiber does it. For a quicker breakfast, I'll have whole grain toast with peanut butter- just look for lower calorie breads to keep the calorie count reasonable when you factor in the PB. Otherwise, I go with Kashi GoLean, frosted mini wheats, or a fiber one cereal. I pretty much rotate among these, with an occassional breakfast burrito (that I make and keep in my freezer) thrown in there.

Just as Healthy_allie, I have Kashi Go Lean Cereal 5 days a week. You probably can not find a breakfast higher in protein and fiber.

Kashi Oatmeal is pretty good too. Amy's makes a breakfast burrito that is quick and easy.

I love Vitatops for breakfast! Also Fage 0% Greek yogurt with fruit, 1/4 cup granola and agave.

I tried the Kashi GoLean Crunch cereal this morning that I got from our cafeteria (I work in a hospital) and it was very good. I like the easiness of cereal, but sometimes the milk gets to me. So far so good this morning (I used fat free skim milk). I also bought a greek yogurt for later just in case. Right now I want it just because I know it's so good, but putting it up until I AM hungry. Thanks for all the tips.

I usually go for a half of a whole wheat bagel w/ peanut butter that has flax in it. On days where I want something a little more interesting (and I have time to cook), I scramble up 1 egg and an egg white, cook it til it's about halfway done, add 1/4 cup fresh spinach let it wilt just a bit in the pan, then add 1/2 chopped tomato w/ salt, pepper, cayenne. Give it just about 30 more seconds and then put it on a small whole wheat burrito. The same recipe, but with black beans in place of eggs is also good and filling with fiber and protein.

I'm going to third the greek yogurt suggestion. I buy the plain kind and mix in my own fruit (three strawberries and kiwi is my personal favorite). No fat and a lot of protein! I typically switch between that and the eggs for my breakfast. I'm sort of looking to add in a third breakfast, but I tend to eat a smaller breakfast so I'm pretty content with the two options!

It's light and leaves me feeling satisfied and ready for my day Smile

Unfortunately Greek yogurt (esp with fruit) is too high in carbs.
I have not yet found a full fat or even one with any fat.
The protein level is good but the carbs and no fat are not (unless you are strictly counting calories).:>Wink

But yogurt is my favourite breakfast and/or snack and even one with fat has too many carbs for low carb.Sad

Watch out for the bananas for breakfast! They pack a pretty solid punch to your blood sugar. Our three kids are diabetic and they all use bananas as a quick boost when they wake up with low blood sugar. Some string cheese and blueberries are a favorite at our house for breakfast, but I admit that life with three type 1 diabetics is not the norm.

I use Lean Body for Her by Labrada and add frozen fruit (no sugar). Very tasty and 30 grams of protein keep you satisfied until lunch.

+whatever on the Greek Yogurt!

My favorite way is plain 0% (Fage & Chobani are the best, I think), strawberries, a drizzle of honey & just a Tbsp of walnuts. Something about the nuts puts it over the top on flavor and satisfaction.

This has replaced my old favorite of a Bagel Thin, a little WW FF cream cheese and Polaner All Fruit with Fiber - but that's still a great option, too!

Every night before I go to bed, I toss a scoop of steel cut oats + some water into a small crock pot. When I wake up in the morning I have fresh, hot oatmeal waiting for me. Some of the things I eat it with:

- A tablespoon of fruit preserves
- Cream, agave nectar cinnamon
- Fresh berries when they're in season
- Cheddar cheese
- Cheddar cheese + sun-dried tomatoes

Most days I do 3 egg whites & 1 whole egg scrambled with chorizo & I never seem to get tired of it. I switch up the meat sometimes but there aren't any others I like as much. When I get tired of savory, I'll do a MIM with some cream cheese or peanut butter.

I like oatmeal with cinnamon and milk, or a scrambled egg and a piece of fruit. Sometimes I will grab a boiled egg. I usually save the yogurt for a snack. For the past few weeks I've been drinking 2 oz of fruit juice as soon as I get up. It stops the hunger immediately and gives me an energy boost, which has helped me cut way back on caffeine.

I tend to mix it up. I switch between 2-3 egg whites with a bunch of veggies and a little lean meat (if I have some), peanut butter on whole wheat toast, steel cut oats, Kashi Go Lean. I often supplement the above with a banana or greek yogurt.

3 Egg whites with Onion, Spinach, Spices... whatever you like made into an omelet! Good protein! Also I eat OatFit oatmeal, 100 Cals but filling, or 6oz of yogurt with 1/2 C. fiber one! Fiber keeps you fuller longer!
