Slim Tip: Why Break the Fast?

Slim Tip: Why Break the Fast?

We’ve heard it a million times over: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But how many of you actually believe this old adage? Well ladies, it’s time to embrace this saying because it might just be the key to overcoming your diet woes.

Breakfast literally means, “breaking the fast” since it’s the first meal you eat after sleeping, and therefore fasting (unless you sleep walk and eat… which sounds scary) all night. After this “fast,” we need to nourish our hungry brain and body with nutrients (a.k.a. breakfast).

According to various articles I have read, breakfast has many health benefits. Based on the Mayo Clinic’s article, Healthy Breakfast: Quick, Flexible Options to Grab at Home, those who eat breakfast are more likely to consume more vitamins and minerals. Breakfast eaters also experience “better concentration and productivity throughout the morning” along with a more positive mood. But most importantly, those who eat breakfast typically eat less fat throughout the day. Starting out your day with breakfast will stabilize hunger and cravings later in the day. Eating breakfast helps prevent binging, eating too many sweets and making unhealthy diet choices because your body is stabilized with the appropriate fuel.

So what does this all mean for your waistline? In a nutshell, eating breakfast will control your appetite while also revving up your metabolism, which will help burn more calories throughout the day.

I usually have an egg white veggie omelet for breakfast. If you would like, I’ll do a post with the recipe!

In the meantime, what do you usually have for breakfast?

    I eat “”Light & Fit”” Plain Yogurt with fresh blueberries and Granola almost every morning with Soy Milk and “”Instant Breakfast”” in Chocolate! It curves my chocolate craving. – Blakeney

  • Heather Watterson

    I am pretty much the only one in my family who likes to eat breakfast. I used to wake up very early in the morning and make myself eggs and toast before I left for school. Now I usually eat some whole grain toast with raspberry yogurt.

  • Glorietta88

    Yeah!!!!breakfast is the most important meal of the day..I agree!!!In summertime I usually eat a mix of fresh fruits: peaches, kiwi, melon, watermelon etc.. with a coffee (I work in office so I don’t have to consumed calories; who works is just my brain :D). In winter i eat rusks with a little bit of jam and fruit; ovviously coffee must be :P

    Lauren i wait for your recipe :D

  • Melissa Panici

    I love eating a bowl of vanilla yogurt with grapenuts mixed in and maybe some toast on the side. This seems like a stingy breakfast but it really is addicting and it fills me up!

  • Melissa Panici

    Thanks for the recipe Lauren! Love you!

  • renizzle

    please post the recipe for your egg white veggie omlette. Thanks, Lauren!

  • paige mcnabb

    I usually have oatmeal with a teaspoon of peanut butter(I like Crunchy) mixed in. Its so Good, and its quick to make, which I need bc I’m always in a super hurry in the mornings.

  • Ida

    I’m all about the 50/50 or best of both toast (sort of white, sort of brown bread) with a smoothie. When I have time at weekends it’s eggs benedict with a side of fresh fruit. Yum.

  • Nicole Mathew

    I have raw oatmeal and add 1 splenda, or I’ll add 1 teaspooon of brown sugar. Sometimes I also add fresh fruit to the oatmeal, or eat it on the side. I’m also a fan of egg whites and a piece of toast, or a small bowl of Special K. Any of these keep me going for hours!

  • Abby Joyce

    I am the only one who eats breakfast out of everyone I know! I really enjoy egg whites, turkey bacon and whole wheat toast.. But I recently have been obsessed with regular Special K and vanilla soy milk and I sometimes add berries. SO GOOD! I even eat it as a snack during the day because I cant get enough!

  • Kiwi

    I usually have Special K cereal or eggs..they are simple, quick, and tasty! I’m a person that always eats breakfast but not so much lunch..so please post the recipe! I will be excited to try it out! :)

  • Monica

    I do organic Omega 3 rich eggs with some ham and lots of veggies! Keeps me full until lunch and helps me avoid the oh so many bakery treats my office always seems to have!

  • Melody Swain

    this is something that my mum has ingrained in me so it’s a no brainer…it can be so easy and yummy and I can be out the door in the same time that it would take to make my coffee… 1 egg & splash of skim milk fork beaten in the microwave for 60 sec on either WW toast or English muffin… if I have leftover veggies that are cut up from dinner last night I’ll throw in red onion, red pepper and mushroom… quick and easy and fills you up till lunch… it’s so good I’ll often have for dinner if I’m home late and don’t feel like cooking

  • Xo_EyeBee

    yes, recipe please!

  • Laurenbeetea

    I love Chobani yogurt (pineapple is my favorite) with a teaspoon of honey and a handful of honey oat granola! It’s great on the go….especially when I’m in a rush to get to work!

    If I have extra time in the morning, I love egg white omlets or over easy eggs.

    I ALWAYS have coffee…no matter how busy I am!

  • katelyn martin

    I love to make oatmeal with two teaspoons of peanut butter! I also love to mix yogurt with my cereal because I am not a huge fan of milk!

  • Anna Cummings

    I guess I should start eating breakfast… and when I do get up and eat (which is rare) I like an everything bagle with creamcheese. YUM!

  • Ariane

    A post with the recipe for your egg white veggie omelet would be great! I’m from Germany and we usually eat bread with jelly or yogurt with fruit or something like that for breakfast. We don’t cook in the morning :).

  • Bianca C

    I’ve never really eaten breakfast on a daily basis, but now that you posted this article, I’m going go buy some pancake mix and make some eggs :) Haha

    Also, I’d be happy if you did post the recipe!! :)

  • Jessica Kutok

    I can’t get through my day without breakfast!!

    In my opinion, it’s always good to have something high in fibre in the morning like a bowl of high fibre cereal!

    Fruit is always nice too.

    However, I just recently learned that eggs are probably the best thing you can eat for breakfast. If only I could wake up early enough to make them though…

  • Lyanma

    I rarely eat breakfast! Maybe you should give out recipes and ideas for breakfast.

  • Carolyn Drover

    I love breakfast!

    I like to eat fruit for breakfast, or scrambled eggs. And on weekends, I’ll treat myself to blueberry pancakes or whole grain french toast with strawberries :) yumm.

  • Diana Carolina Trochez Ardila

    Well, I have 2 types of breakfasts. Number 1 is for the rainy days: Orange Juice, a boiled egg and a mug of hot cocoa (milo). Number 2 is for the sunny days: A bowl of Special K with red berries, half banana and milk low fat.

    I enjoy my breakfast, I eat it with time and no rush. It helps me to get better days. ;D

  • shannon myers

    I wish I had more time to make breakfast in the morning. I’m usually grabbing a RedBull and granola bar and running out the door, or grabbing a Starbucks latte and calling it a meal.

    When I do have time to eat it, I try to make it healthy. Either a bowl of frosted mini wheats with fresh strawberries, a quick egg with fresh rasberries, but my favorite is a bowl of oatmeal with a banana and a spoonful of peanut butter! It fills me up and keeps me going all morning.

  • Veronica Takougang

    Whenever I eat breakfast I usually have one slice of whole wheat bread, one egg (either scrambled or sun-side up) and then green tea, or a cup or OJ on the side. When school starts, I only eat a granola bar, and a bottle of juice.

  • Gemma Williams

    I’ve started having a handful of oat granola with raisins and two spoonfuls of natural yoghurt mixed with fresh friut. Yum!

  • Lauren Leathers

    I usually eat a piece of 12 grain bread, with nutella and a banana! :)

  • Sara Davis

    I love breakfast but when I am getting up early, I often don’t have time to make anything. Sometimes I just have cereal or real fruit smoothies (but I often get hungry quicker because they’re light). But if anybody has tips for making time, let me know! I would love to see a recipe for the egg whites. I definitely want to have healthy breakfasts. I also love fruit on the side.

  • Kristin Albrecht

    I would love a post of the recipe! I usually eat a blueberry bagel with light cream cheese and a glass of ice water.

  • danielle w

    whole wheat bread with peanut butter and sliced banana on top :)

  • Julie Haugan

    I always eat an omelet with blueberrys and strawberrys on the side! great start for the day!

  • Elisabeth File

    I eat every day in the morning, a whole grain bread with honey or jam (raspberry or apricot), then I drink a coffee (I know that it’s not the healthiest but I need it to wake up)

  • candyheyn

    yes lauren.. please post the recipe… it sounds yummy…. i usually eat either cereals or bread with like salami or cheese

  • Sabrinchen

    I would like to get your recipe :) I eat breakfast every morning, can’t start the day without. Usually I eat whole grain bread!

  • Jennero

    When I’m in a hurry, I’ll stir up an instant breakfast shake. But, usually I’ll have French bread toast with yogurt butter or a bowl of oatmeal. And always a glass of Simply Orange juice.

  • Natasha Rossi

    I like to switch things up, but usually I have 2 fried eggs on toast, or whole grain bread with organic peanut butter, or an egg white omelet, or oatmeal or cereal. I also love yogurt with cinnamon, and sometimes I add some granola and fruit to it. And for a treat once in a while I make blueberry pancakes or crepes with nutella and bananas. :) And I start most of my days with tea, my favourites are moroccan mint and peppermint.

  • Hilary K

    I usually have a bowl of Kashi cereal with blueberries. My other favorite breakfast is whole wheat toast with organic peanut butter and sliced strawberries – and a glass of skim milk.

  • Amanda Kretchmer

    I love breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day. If I’m in a rus I have a whole grain cereal, almond milk, starberries, blueberries, and flax seed. Other times I’ll have whole whaet english muffins with natural peanut butter nad blueberries. If I have time I’ll make scrambled eggs with green onions, sliced tomatoes, and suasage mixed in.

  • Laura lou

    I love doing oatmeal with peanut butter and bananas. Or i love on whole grain toast, peanut butter, bananas, strawberries, dried crandberries, and sunflower seeds. Being allergic to dairy and eggs and also not eating meat, usually eat fruit and grains for breakfast.

  • Laura Cola

    I really love brekfast and I need to it otherwise I can’t do anything. I like to change, sometimes I eat a bowl of cereal with milk and sometimes toast with jam. Usually I take the coffee an hour after they left home.

  • Shannonmarie

    I tend to stick with mainly fruit until lunch. When I wake up, I just have some water with lemon. Then, when I start to feel hungry, I have a green smoothie (it’s better than it sounds; right now, I love cilantro with pineapple, cucumber, lime and grapefruit) or some fresh fruit and greens. It gives me a ton of energy to start my day.

    - Shannonmarie :-)

  • Patrice Lynch

    Hi Lauren! Please post the recipe !! Sounds Delicious :)

    Sometimes I like to have porridge (I think you call it oatmeal?) with some blueberries sprinkled on top for breakfast with a cup of tea or a glass of orange juice. Most mornings I have 1 cup of Special K and a glass of orange juice. On the weekends I might make a low fat version of french toast! YUM! :D

  • Laura Aaltio

    Yes to the recipe!!!!

  • Giulia De Luca

    I have breakfest in italian stylr: cappucino e cornetto! I really love to be italian for this reason!!

  • Constanza Galleguillos

    I have a slow digestion problem so every morning I have 3/4 cup of high fiber cereal with a non fat yogurt, my coffee is oh soo important with stevia that is a natural sweetener.

  • Els Jeuris

    I love a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, whole weat toast & jam and off course, a large cup of coffee :)

    Never tried veggies at breakfast before though..

  • Samantha Foster

    I LOVE breakfast. It’s my favourite meal of the day. I usually have eggs with a slice of whole grain toast and half of a grapefruit.

    Otherwise I love fruit in the morning, toast with peanut butter or jam, crumpets, pancakes (MMMM), homemade waffles, bacon, etc

    Breakfast is definitely the very best. ESPECIALLY if it comes with coffee.

  • scgirl

    Yes, Lauren please post your veggie omelet recipe!

  • Stacie

    Dairy and fruit usually upset my stomach when I’m active in the morning, so I always have a waffle with peanut butter before work. I usually have cinnamon waffles, but I should really switch to whole grain.

    On the weekends when I have more time to lay around lazy while my stomach settles, I love a bowl of yogurt topped with granola. Yum.

  • renizzle

    LC, have you ever used Arbonne products before? Just wondering? I bet you would love them. Anyway, I was wondering if you have any recipes for protein shakes for breakfast or dinner? Thank you!!

  • the divine miss m

    best breakfast ever: i take a couple of eggs, throw in some broccoli, sliced olives, chopped yellow onions (although green are good, too) and garlic. every now and then i’ll toss in some sausage as a treat. delicious, filling, and healthy!

  • Anna Kay

    lauren! your egg white veggie omelette sounds amazing! i’d love it if you could post the recipe. i can’t wait to try it! ❤

  • Laura Jewison

    I loved loved loved this post! I have been doing Weight Watchers for 3 months and have lost 23 pounds! They encourage a healthy breakfast as well and breaking the fast. This is so true ladies, if I skip a day of breakfast, I am ravaging by the time I get home, if I did eat breakfast, I eat when I get home and thats it I am satisfied! Would love the recipe for your omelet Lauren! Keep the great posts coming!!

  • Meaghan Greer

    I LOVE my fruit smoothies!! I just take 1 C. vanilla yogurt (low fat), 1 Tbsp. honey, and 1 C. frozen fruit and blend for about 30 seconds. I like frozen cherries, or frozen berry blend of blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries. Also, the peach, pineapple, mango, and strawberry blend of frozen fruit is good. Plus all these ingredients are super good for you and fill you up! I don’t feel heavy after finishing one, but feel very hydrated and energetic. *Smile*

  • Sung-Yeh Nordquist

    Something light and healthy, like a homemade fruit parfait with a dash of cinnamon!

    PS- Recipe please :)

  • Sheri Lalehzarian

    please do a recipe of you’re omelet! :)

  • Lyndsey Kneebone

    Trader Joe’s steelcut oatmeal with berries from the farmer’s market is ready in three minutes and I’m out the door! Yum!

  • Casey Lynn

    I actually am not a huge breakfast person (unless it’s Sunday and my dad whips up chocolate chip pancakes), but I do like omelets!

    xo,

    Poodle Shoe Girl

  • Alexis DiNatale

    A good butter solution on your whole wheat toast is some avocado. Not only do I LOVE the taste but also the fats that it does contain are good for your brain to kick start your day off right!

  • Aine Carlin

    How funny! My latest blog post was all about ‘breaking the fast’ and indeed breakfast skippers – shame on you;) I really look forward to breakfast and love oats in the morning – I’m obsessed with baked oatmeal at the moment and my fav combo is this pb, banana and chocolate version. Sounds sickly sweet but it’s really not and it’s full of goodness. Yay for breakfast x

  • Federica Valente

    the classic italian breakfast : cappuccino and croissant :)

  • debora f

    good federica valente…italian breakfast is better

  • Karolina Cz

    i never skip breakfast.

    I usually have sandwiches with some low fat cham and tomato on it or cheese as I’m a cheese freak :)

    and yes recipe please! I have never done a good omelet yet :/ there’s always something wrong with it :)

  • Maria Abbruscato

    Well, I was born and raised in the south so a favorite of mine is grits!!!!!!! I also like yogurt and granola ;)

  • Rebecca Kelsey Sampson

    I usually have a fruit smoothie and toast. Yummy! I’m eating it right now. It really helps me feel fueled.

    Kindness is the best accessory,

  • Filipa Salgueiro

    I NEVER skip breakfast, and my favourite is Watermelon with Yogurt, it’s not only light but fresh, as well, perfect for a summer breakfast, and you can add some cereals – it’s sooo delicious!!

  • Robyn Wien

    I love pumpkin oatmeal, especially on a cold winter day! Just make regular oats or oatbran in the micro, then mix in a big serving of canned pumpkin, (hardly any cals, so the more, the yummier) and a little splenda to sweeten it up. When all mixed and hot, I sprinkle cinnamon, a few dried cranberries, and some sliced almonds. It’s easy, super filling, and best of all, tastes like pumpkin pie!!!!

  • Jasmine Khan

    I’m trying to minimize the number of carbs I eat (unless in sandwiches, mainly) so I’ve been eating oatmeal with honey, eggs, or greek yogurt and fruit. All leave me so full for hours!!

  • Maureen Kiley

    That sounds yummy! Please post the recipe. I usually start my moring with greek yogurt, a little bit of granola and blueberries!

  • Sarah Ingram

    The BEST thing you could have for breakfast is a couple eggs and some spinach, broccoli, or any green veggies. There are so many benefits – revs up your metabolism, gives you energy, keeps your body from storing fat, keeps you from snacking and helps you make better choices all day! Having bread in the morning increases your sugar intake, and in the morning you have been fasting and your body will store all that sugar! Give it lots of protein and vitamins and youll not only lose weight but feel better too!

  • Lauren Gonzalez

    I did my own take on this recipe this morning. Instead of fried eggs I made scrambled eggs (mostly egg whites, but with 1 yolk). I added just a little nonfat milk, salt, and pepper to the eggs. I made them using no butter and no oil – so they’d be healthier! I served the scrambled eggs with a healthy side of raw spinach that I drizzled a little vidalia onion dressing on and I also had a whole wheat english muffin. I had a glass of orange juice to wash it all down! PERFECT start to my day!

  • veronicag

    What I usually have for breakfast is always a coffee (I dont even think it is possible for me to have a conversation with someone but I drink one), a multi grain toast ( get my carbs early) and low fat yogurt with fruits! Ive been trying to make a veggie ommelette… Put the recipee up fast! Cant wait to try it :)

  • Anna Wood

    I’m a cereal-aholic! I love the stuff! It works best for me because I am a very busy woman and have very little time in the mornings. In the summer I usually stick to cold cereal (blueberry morning and I have a love affair that my husband is aware of) in the summer and hot cereal (rolled oats cooked on the stove) in the fall/winter.

  • Katjusha Bricman

    Since I was a kid, untill now, I always have same breakfast. A piece of fruit first (apple or appricot or 2 slices of melon,…) then hot cocoa and 2 slices of bread with becel (brand of margarine) and fruit jam.

  • Kathleen Kelly

    I love making blueberry waffles. Or chocolate chip waffles. Or plain waffles. :) I can never skip breakfast. I’m always hungry in the morning. Unless it’s super early and I’m nervous about something. But then I always end up bring something to eat later since I know I’ll get hungry at my destination.

  • Lyndsee Burleson

    I’m a multi grain cheerio kinda gal. they’re sweeter than you’d guess. on days when I know lunch is far off, I like frosted mini wheats. I don’t shy from carbs at breakfast!

  • Koceva Tamara

    I love this post,thank you Lauren for posting it… These days I’ve been wondering does breakfast makes me fat,because I eat a lot for breakfast,and sometimes i just think i need to reduce it…. Thank you soo much for this,and I would like more posts like this…. For breakfast I usually eat pankakes,eggs, I also dring milk or yogurt…..

  • Kaymo

    I can totally say I believe this. While my mom went away for 2 weeks, it was my job to wake up and cook breakfast for my bro and dad, prepare my dad’s lunch for work, and then cook dinner for my dad and bro. Because I was doing all the cooking, I ate all 3 meals, as opposed to just lunch and dinner. When my mom came back, she told me I lost weight. I didn’t believe her until I went to my doctors appointment a week later. I lost 6 pounds!!!! I couldn’t believe it. So i re-weighed myself at home and what did you know, the doctor was right haha. So now I wake up and eat breakfast every morning. I keep it simple with oatmeal, a peanut butter sandwich, or if I feel like cooking, eggs/bacon/rice :-)

  • Michelle Kirby

    Breaking the fast is my favorite part of the day! Recently, I have been enjoying baked eggs :) Crack two brown eggs into a ramekin (lightly coated with cooking spray) and add two tablespoons of skim or 2% milk, along with some salt and pepper and fresh basil. So good :) It cooks in the oven for 15 minutes. I have done this with spinach as well; however, be selective with your add-inns, ramekins are only so big (I found out!!!)

  • V

    To me breakfast has to be fat free because if not I feel ‘heavy’ the whole morning and because I have hereditary cholesterol issues…

    So my breakfast would be (FIRST OF ALL WITH AN EMPTY BELLY) 500ml of water (room temperature)

    A cup of decaf coffee with skim milk (half water and half milk)

    2 toasts of whole bread with jam and thats it or I reaplce the two toasts for an orange or a fruit =)

    I usually eat 4 healthy meals a day since i found out the cholesterol thing and drink a lot of water, no to mention all the fitness I do like tae bo, go for a run/walk etc.

  • teirza thebeau

    This is oh so true! Breakfast is amazing, I love doing 2 egg whites and 1 yoke fried egg w/ Eziekiel bread, or raw almonds and brown cow 0% fat greek yogurt, or eziekiel bread with sunflower seed butter and bananna :) Keep’s me full and DEFINETLY does the trick to keep me on track all day! <3

  • Caroline Dabroszek

    OATMEALE! which is the best! :-)

  • Melissa Hampson-Higgs

    I usually have bacon and eggs, keeps me going until dinner time! X

  • Megan Maiorano

    would love to see your egg white veggie omlete recipe! sounds yummy

  • Kaydee Mirrors

    I definitely need to start eating a healthier breakfast. Waffles are too fattening =X It’s worse when I don’t eat anything at all because its sooo true. I end up eating more carbs than intended. Note to self: Look up healthy breakfast recipes and wake up earlier (I’m ALWAYS on the run!)

  • Cassi Brunet

    I always have one or two cups of coffee everyday when I wake up. It’s hard to really eat breakfast because I never wake up at the same time every day. My work schedule is always changing. Sometimes I work at 6 am but sometimes I don’t work until 2:30pm. If I work later I tend to stay up later and then I end up sleeping in…breakfast time for me is sometimes in the afternoon. I usually find myself rushing and then I don’t really eat anything until dinner time…not very healthy is it…= (

  • Cathleen Kelley

    For breakfast I like oatmeal, a fruit and a cup of tea (sometimes coffee, but can’t really have alot of it cause it makes me get the jitters.

  • Shelby Olson

    I have oatmeal with almond milk in the morning, and I mix in cinnamon, almonds, or berries depending on what I’m in the mood for. I love it :-)

  • Emily Sitter

    Lauren, please share your egg white omlette recipe!!!! :)

    My favourite breakfast is a smoothie with yogurt, frozen berries, juice (i use raspberries and apple juice) and some flax seed oil, and a few pieces of ryvita crispbread. Easy when i’m on the go and very tasty!

  • Finn

    whole grain toast with peanut butter and a piece of fruit

  • Maria Ayala

    I am not going to lie. I don’t ever eat breakfast! but I should start! So, posting that recipe would deffinately be a helpful start for me trying to go on a diet!

    Thanks! :)

  • Kimberly Reed

    I usually have high fiber cereals, oatmeal w/flax seeds, almonds, cinnamon, eggs and tomatoes on a crossaint…teas….waffles.

  • Amanda Judge

    I like to grab a vanilla or strawberry yogurt if I am in a hurry and fill it with an assortment of fresh fruits. Strawberries, blueberries, bananas, raspberries, and black berries are always good choices. There was a study done that says if you eat 6 ounces of fat-free yogurt daily, it will boost weight loss up to 81%.

  • Brooke Amber

    For breakfast I love a piece of toast with organic raw almond butter, and a bowl of Trader Joe’s vanilla yogurt with flaxseed granola. :) My guilty pleasure breakfast would be eggs benedict, yummm!

  • Jesy

    For my morning meal, I usually grab a Light yogurt and add granola. Its yummy and gets my day started off right. I defiantly can tell when I don’t eat, by lunch I am so hungry I overeat. Thank goodness for the work cafe, when I forget to grab my food, I usually grab an egg white, spinach and feta cheese omelet, without butter I have them use a drop of olive oil instead :)

  • danielle virnelson

    A bowl of Kellogg’s Smart Start Cereal with nonfat milk, and 1 hard-boiled egg… usually followed by a cup of coffee, and a granola bar about half way between my breakfast and lunch time

    -or-

    If I have time to actually make breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled with a side of lowfat cottage cheese, a slice of whole wheat toast and a couple slices of tomatoes

  • Andrea Farrington

    the recipe would be nice! I love omelets

  • lilybee
  • Megan Kane

    Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal! Keeps me full all morning because as the commercial says, “”It has as much protein as an egg!””

  • Scott Eddie

    I try to eat brekafast every morning even if i am always on the go becasue from what studies show, one tends to eat more throughout the day if you miss breakfast which makes you gain more plus people have high metabolism in the morning so its best to eat that time. I always have a cup of tea in the morning cause it makes me feel light and for my meal, i prefer eating high fiber food such as wheat bread or cereal grains with low fat milk. I also have my yogurt and fruits as sort of my dessert.

  • Kate Fiona

    I would love the recipe to that omlette :) My usual breakfast is 2 poached eggs on one slice of low sodium ezekiel bread…i feel an omlette would be another great choice to have as a go to

  • Amy Breckenridge

    Most days I eat a healthy cereal (like Kashi Strawberry Fields or Cascadian Farm granola) or a Ciobani greek yogurt with a piece of fruit! It definitely gets me off to a good start for the day and keeps me from eating a ton at lunch.

  • Heather Kidd

    Breakfast has become my favorite meal of the day! I love it. Usually I eat cereal, my favorite is slicing a fresh peach or banana into a plain cereal, Special K, with 2% milk. I love the fresh fruit mixed in, it’s so good! I also like scrambled eggs with some slices of tomato. While on vacation last week, however, I wasn’t as healthy and went with some classic krispy kreme’s ;)

  • Chelsea Force

    I love all breakfast food! My fave is buying Egg Beaters egg whites and switching up my morning meals with them. Sometimes I’ll make a veggie omelet with canadian bacon and a piece of whole wheat toast. Other days, I’ll top a whole wheat tortilla with scrambled egg whites, low-fat cheese and add some spicy pico de gallo. Yoplait Light is my go to for rushed mornings.

  • Logan

    Kellogg’s corn flacks with semi skimmed milk! It’s quite filling until lunch….n i cant believe it but some days I wake up craving corn flacks :)

  • Katie Smith

    Lauren, this is a great tip! I’d love your veggie omelet recipe!

  • Anniina Nikkila

    that looks delicious! I start my day with a slice rye bread (finland’s special) with turkey fillet, salad, tomato and cucumber, and a bowl of quark with pineapple and berries ! To start my engines I have a cup of coffee :)

  • Kayt

    Its so hard to eat breakfast just because I’m not really into breakfast type foods! I love donuts and danishes but I can’t have those everyday! Your recipe for the omelet looks delicious so I will definitely be trying that!

  • natalie jones

    i can’t eat straight after i wake up, it makes me feel ill. i have to wait an hour then i normally have toast or egg on toast, whichever i feel like!:-)

  • Normally I eat some cereals with an half apple and yoghurt. But today I just ate bread with jam

  • Katja Remes

    Since I was a little kid, my mom has always told me to eat breakfast, because it’s such an important meal. And it’s true. If I eat breakfast I can go for so long… and I love breakfast foods.

    I usually like omelettes, honey cheerios when I’m craving sweets or yogurt. And some great coffee plus orange juice.

  • megan eubanks

    I’d love the omelet recipe!

  • Tricia McKenley

    I usually have for breakfast 2 omega 3 eggs (scrambled or fried), 2 slices of turkey bacon, cucumbers & tomottoes. This meal keeps me fueled and ready for the day :)

  • Justine Verret

    I don’t know how people can stick to the same breakfast everyday! I love to go from an energizer milkshake with fruits, yogourt and milk that I pair with an wholegrain toast with homemade apple sauce to a bowl of my favourite cereals (muslix bananas and nuts by kellog) with vanilla flavoured soy beverage! :)

    I think I made a mistake not eating during a big final that I had before I started college. I only barely passed, I wonder what will happen if I do eat breakfast the next time.

  • Fanya Daniels

    This was perfect for me I never eat breakfast because I can’t find the time. Then I just eat junk all through out the day. I am going to try and restructure my time. I just may have to wake up at 5am.

  • Niinax van zadelhoff

    i never eat breackfast ..

  • Carin

    I eat oatmeal (not the ones in package but just about 1 cup oats, 1,75 cup water and some salt) and I put some banana slices and cinnamon on top of it.
    Sometimes I put blueberries and cinnamon on top instead, or maybe sliced apple and cinnamon.
    It’s healthy AND delicious!

    I love eggs for breakfast, but don’t have the time during the week so it’s a weekend treat for me. Poached eggs on wholemeal toast is the best!

  • Melissa Dickson

    During the work week when I want something fast but filling I’ll have a packet of original instant oatmeal sprinkled with a little cinnamon and a diced banana on top…so yummy and keeps me full till lunch.

  • Emily Knauer

    For breakfast, I like to have an omelete, or breakfast sandwich with egg and cheese. I also like to eat a banana or half of a grapefruit and bowl of cereal low in sugar. Eating breakfast has always been a necessity for me !

  • Joie Recto

    yes, please post the recipe again if you haven’t

  • Yonca Yildirim

    I actually now how to cook eggs :D it is so easy.. but I would add some more spice to it.

  • soupforthegirlysoul

    EVERYBODY has time for eggs during the week! All you need is a microwave and one basic coffee mug. Crack 1-2 eggs into the coffee mug, scramble them by stirring them with a fork, add a little salt, pepper, spinach, salsa (whatever you like), then stir them again. Put the coffee mug in the microwave for 45 seconds-1 minute, take it out and stir the eggs again, then put them back in the microwave for another 45 seconds-1 minute. They will swell up and rise to the top of the coffee mug, so be sure not to put TOO much stuff in the coffee mug; I never scramble more than 2 eggs at a time. It’s so easy! Less than 5 minutes from prep to completion–plenty of time to pour your OJ and get your toast done. Who could ask for a better breakfast in under 5 minutes?!

  • soupforthegirlysoul

    I agree! Egg whites are an awesome breakfast! I also love oatmeal and breakfast protein/oatmeal shakes!

    I looooveee breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day, most likely because I’m an early riser. So I can enjoy my oatmeal with crushed almond, walnuts and a tsp of brown sugar, banana, and slice of multi-grain toast topped with peanut butter, while listening to the birds chirp and feeling the cool morning breeze on my patio. LOve it!

  • curly19

    i usually make oatmeal with honey and tea on the side yummy!

  • Sadie Bledsoe

    I love bananas with peanut butter, greek yogurt and granola, or smoothies from Jamba Juice :)

  • KT

    Bagel Thin with almond butter and diced nectarines is my go-to breakfast.

  • michvandy

    Oh sleep eaters exist! A good friend of mine dates one! My favorite story involves him and a jar of nutella!

  • Jen

    I love cereal!! Any Special K cereal I love! If I don’t grab a bowl of cereal, I’ll usually eat an banana and have a cup of coffee. Simple and delicious. :)

    If you’re going to cheat a little bit in your diet or eating healthy, breakfast is the meal to do it! You burn all those calories off throughout the day. I have different things everyday, but homemade breakfast tacos are my favorite! Eat big for breakfast, medium for lunch and then snacks or a light meal make up the rest of the day (dinner).

    Oh I believe in breakfast even if it is just a small and quick green smoothie (that you can easily prepare the night before if you know you need to run out the door the next morning. Although, fresh breakfast or even a cozy one with friends are my favorites of all times :)

    Which makes me thinking, maybe it is time to send out some invitations again to embrace a nice brunch filled with laughter!

    Thank you for sharing this!

      thank you for this post. i have always had a tough time eating breakfast. what you said reminded me of the past when life wasnt so stressful.

  • Ashley Bock

    I’m a sucker for any kind of breakfast potatoes. Always red potatoes usually fried up with some olive oil and seasonings. Or sometimes I’ll do an organic cage-free egg over pinto beans… Is this bad?? Any derivatives or new healthier ideas for me??
