Breakfast -- Always, Sometimes, or Never?

One of my New Year resolutions is to eat breakfast more regularly instead of swigging down a couple cups of coffee and calling it a meal. That got me wondering...what's the morning routine of other 'Hounds? How often is breakfast eaten, and what does it usually include? This might inspire me to stay focused on my goal.

  1. I use to never eat breakfast because of time constraints and I just wasn't hungry until about 10:30 am. But on vacations when I did eat breakfast, I found that I ate less the rest of the day.

    Currently, I am eating less in the evenings so I am hungry in the mornings.

      Same here. I eat like a pig during the afternoon and evening when I don't eat breakfast. When I wake up early enough to count eating as breakfast, I feel more satisfied throughout the day.

    2. I always have breakfast. I'm a hungry girl.

      *steel cut oats & wheatberries cooked in soy milk with cinnamon vanilla with a 1/2 banana

      *fruit and plain yogurt

      *egg sammiches

      1. Yes, always. During the week it's oatmeal mixed w/egg whites and on weekends it can be anything as simple as muesli, waffles and PB or more involved like eggs benedict and/or omelets with bacon and toast (if one could call that "involved").

        1. Always! During the week it's usually a whole grain english muffin with peanut butter, on the weekend could be something a bit more decadent like pancakes, eggs or something like that.

          1. Always, but I wake up first. I have to start with a cup of good strong coffee. I dump frozen Blueberries in a bowl and go to walk the dog before breakfast.

            My routine breakfast is the blueberries– I prefer fresh wild ones but this time of year frozen will do and they thaw by the time our walk is over.

            I top the fruit with half a container of yogurt. My favorite is Liberte six grain with pear. This is topped with a third of a cup of low sugar granola. My current favorite is Bare Naked Tripe Berry.

            It gets me off to a great start.

              Yes! Blueberries, bare naked, yogurt, and flax seed. It's amazing.
