1 or 2 large eggs
or 1 egg + egg white substitute

pepperidge farm light style extra fiber wheat bread... a mouthful to say, but 40 cals/slice

veggies of choice
and/or borden fat free cheese slices
or laughing cow cheese wedges

sometimes cottage cheese and fruit if i have it.

1 cup fat free yogurt (Trader Joe's)+ handful of fresh blueberries
1 Banana
Coffee (black)
About 1/2 the time I will add a mixture of .5 cup each 1% milk and Pink grapefruit with a scoop of Whey protein OR I add 1/4 cup granola to the yogurt
October 5, 2012 5:17 PM
120 grams of egg whites (I use the carton ones for ease)
2 strips of Center Cut bacon
28g Avocado (about 1/4 of an average sized one)
2 Slices of Alvarado St. Bakery Essential Flax Seed Bread
12g (1 serving) plain PB2
12g (1 serving) chocolate PB2

Dice avocado, cook bacon and crumble, add to egg whites. Toast bread. While bread is toasting, mix up PB2 together in one container with 24g of water. Spread PB2 on toast.

Kashi GoLean Oatmeal or Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal with unsweetened chocolate almond milk...

I make a crustless quiche once a week for me & the hubby, it gets us 3 breakfasts each (6 slices). Its filling, and low cal.

In a bowl combine:
6 large eggs
1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese
1/2 cup lowfat shredded cheese (your choice)
1 package drained/thawed frozen chopped spinach ( I change up the veggie choice all the time, sometimes asparagus, sometimes zucchini, yellow squash is very good also)
salt & pepper to taste

With spinach, its 140 cals per slice.

I also add meat sometimes, like chicken sausage, or ham.

Spray a nonstick pie pan with cooking spray, pour in your egg mixture, bake @ 375 for about 35-40 minutes.
Slice it up after it cools, cover and put in the fridge, micro a slice every morning, deelish!

I go to the gym most mornings before work, so every night before I go to bed I fill a little tupaware tub with:

150g - ish of 0%fage Greek yoghurt (around 100 cals, and the protein in it keeps you really full!)
A couple of chopped strawberries/blueberries
6 walnut halves
2table spoons of oats

Then I mix it all up, the oats swell up over night, the fruit sweetens the yoghurt and it keeps hunger locked up till lunch!
Also, if I think it's gonna be a long stretch till lunch il put in more oats and nuts!
Also means I can just grab it from the fridge on my way to the gym and then I have it when get into work :)

I am totally stealing this idea...

1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup oats
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup frozen blueberries

about 270 cal 38 carbs 3 fat and 20 protein to keep you full and build lean muscle if you are strength training.

Low Fat Yogurt with some granola and a little bit of honey! Lately I have been having that with kiwi or apples!

Water & whey. If I didn't work out at 5 am I'd skip the whey protein.

Since I have an infant, I don't have a lot of time to cook breakfast. I've been eating low fat oatmeal and yogurt. I'm hoping to try out some of these for a more nutrient-packed grab-and-go breakfast.
October 5, 2012 7:49 PM
I don't eat breakfast
October 5, 2012 7:52 PM
my go to is cheerios with milk and fruit but for filling I would go for oatmeal or cream of wheat. They both hold me to lunch.
October 5, 2012 7:52 PM
Hi, I have two: bite size whole wheat shredded wheat thrown in a baggie and eaten on the bus, sometimes I have raisins thrown in also. when I used to have a car, I kept a box in the car next to the driver's seat. No brainer snack. Lots of fiber. Not messy.smooched

THe other is oatmeal. On a lucky day I have a ripe banana to cook into it.
October 5, 2012 7:52 PM
I have oatmeal every day, like a robot. I hate it.

I spice it up with some peanutbutter, or cinnamon + sweetner or whatever else I can find.

I find it just takes like 30 seconds to make (put the water on).

I also work in a restaurant and usually make an egg on an english muffin with a slice of bacon and cheese. I can't be bothered to do all that at home.

vega <3 it is a life savour
October 5, 2012 7:58 PM
Almond butter / hazelnut butter or cashew butter sandwich during the week. 

Weekends, either an egg white omelet with veggies  or Greek yogurt with almonds & fruit.

I love oatmeal so hard. I mix up my stuff the night before, then add hot water when I get to work. (I may also be overly fond of electric kettles). I usually have 1/2 c quick oats, with
-2 T Teddie's natural peanut butter, 20 g dried fruit (craisins, cherries, etc) or chop up an apple. Throw in some cinnamon if I feel fancy. Lots of protein, healthy fats, and fiber!
-2 T sweetened coconut flakes, 20 g dried cherries, 2 T half and half. I've been thinking that nutmeg would be a good addition. This combo is not nearly so protein heavy, but I found if I have it as a post-workout breakfast, after my post-workout milk, then I'm set for a while.

Basically, oatmeal plus whatever you have on hand. I've been thinking of throwing in some nuts (toasted?), bananas, or frozen blueberries.

Also AMAZING is Red River. I have a hard time finding it in the states, but it's easier to find in Quebec. I visit and stock up about once a year. Link: I mix it 50/50 with regular oatmeal (steel cut oats, if I have the time) and my oatmeal accoutrements du jour.

Hope this helps!

One whole egg and one egg white scrambled

1/3 cup of weight watchers low-fat italian blended cheese (mix in into eggs)

2 pieces of jennie-o turkey bacon (30 calories a slice...i like to cook them until they are crispy)

1/2 cup of berries (raspberries and blueberris)

such a delicious filled breakfast!!
October 5, 2012 8:01 PM

I'm looking for ideas for whole food breakfasts that are easy on the calories but keep you full all morning long. PLUS they need to be easy to take to work! When I say "whole food" I mean not processed food. No poptarts, frozen sausage sandwiches, etc.

Thanks for sharing!

Whey protein pancakes. Can be made ahead and warmed in a microwave.

These are extremely filling! I found this recpie from another MFP poster: (can't remember who..sorry!)

1 scoop (28 g) whey protein
1/4 blue berries (my personal choice to add these) (I have also added dark chocolate chips too)
3/4 tsp baking powder
2 packets stevia
1/3 liquid eqq whites
1/4 unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon

makes 3 pancakes. I have the nutrition. facts in my diary. Had them today.
