Breakfast of the Scholars?

Unread postby Rhiannon » Sun Aug 19, 2007 5:21 pm

As one of the changes I've had to make in this past month, I've had to begin eating breakfast on a regular, daily basis. This isn't an optional thing for me; I need to eat breakfast, so that I can take one of my daily medications.

Now, I'm normally a hungry person in the morning - my problem has always been taking the time to make/eat breakfast on anything but a weekend. So I've been trying to pick out breakfasts that won't take long to make, and won't be a hassle to eat. They also need to be fairly healthy or balanced - nothing like Pop-tarts or Toaster Strudels.

So far, I've come up with the following options:

* Whole grain cereal with yogurt (that is, replacing milk with yogurt).
* Breakfast sandwiches (egg, sausage or bacon, cheese, muffin/croissant)
* Whole wheat pancakes (bought frozen, so just require heating)
* Wholesome/organic granola bars (not the quickie Quaker Oats ones, brands like Archer's Farms or Kashi)
* Wholesome cookies that are somewhat low in sugar with milk
* Hash browns (bought frozen) with a quick scrambled egg

So tell me, Scholars - what do you eat for breakfast? Do you have any recommendations for a quick healthy breakfast? And, just to keep the discussion complete, what about those big, fill your stomach breakfasts - what do you enjoy on those occasions?

See you at the breakfast table!

Sometimes I create some sort of sandwich. It can range anywhere from tuna fish on toast to meat, greens, tomato, cheese, mayo and mustard on a toasted ciabatta roll. On a weekend I may wait a bit and eat a larger meal—perhaps leftovers. On work mornings I often-times grab a few nutritional bars to hold me over until lunch.

I’m better about eating breakfast now than I once was.

Hmm...I prefer sleep to breakfast :)

I would often wake up quite late leaving me no time for breakfast, and only time to arrive at college late. And that has become so much of a habbit that, even on days when I don't need to go anywhere in the morning, I do not feel the need to have breakfast. So I don't really have any breakfast, and Im used to it.

I usually just eat Cocoa Puffs. They're just so damn good. For something healthy try probably a lettuce sandwich with orange juice?

I have congee at home. When i am not at home and have to make it myself i use the timer function on the rice cooker.

Sometimes i have yoghurt, cereal, fruit, miso soup, steamed buns or microwave porridge.

Pop tarts are so sweet they give me a headache.

Oatmeal---food of the gods.

Instant oats suck, but you can put regular oats in a slowcooker the night before. If you make more than one serving, you can always put it in the fridge, and nuke it the following day.
