- Oatmeal. I throw some raisins or chopped apple in with the oats while they are boiling away and it comes out really yummy. I eat this topped with milk and cinnamon.
- Granola. I make my own and it is super simple (take a big bowl of oats, and some mashed nuts and some brown sugar, stir with a small amount of oil and maple syrup then bake at 250 degrees until it is dry). To the baked granola add raisins or dried cranberries and milk. Also yummy.
- Eggs and toast (super simple)...I like my eggs scrambled.
- A fried egg sandwich.
- An egg salad sandwich.
- Peanut butter and jelly on toast.
- Deviled eggs and toast.
- Scrambled eggs on a flour tortilla with jam (take a warm tortilla, add a small slather of strawberry jam then add scrambled eggs, wrap and eat).
- Leftovers--everything from pizza or casserole to fried chicken or fish and rice.
- Eggs and pancakes or waffles or french toast (pancakes and waffles can be made ahead of time and frozen or kept in the refrigerator then heated up for breakfast.
That's what I eat for breakfast. I always eat some kind of fruit with my breakfast (whatever is on sale or in season, right now mostly apples, strawberries, and bananas). Also, I don't eat pork so that kind of rules out the most common types of breakfast meat (ham, bacon, sausage). I try not to eat wheat much so my range of toast and bread products usually include sprouted wheat breads and wheatless breads).
Eating breakfast really does get your day off to a great start. You don't feel so lethargic, you have more energy in the morning, and your aren't as likely to be starving and gorge yourself at lunch.
