I need to eat more oats, but I usually have toast and coffee and on weekends whole grain pancakes.

On weekdays I have a protein shake that has in it:
all natural Protein powder (means it really uses stevia)
flaxseed oil
frozen blueberries
banana
Psyillium seed husks

about an hour later I'm drinking about four cups of hot green tea.

On the weekends I was eating a lot of oatmeal, but a lot of times I'm eating eggs on the weekend. I drink green tea while eating breakfast during the weekend

I'm not big on breakfasts, but I do agree that it's important to eat something in the morning. I usually start with a cup of coffee, which sometimes contains a spoon of coconut oil. Then I'll at least have a banana and a glass of orange juice mixed either with spirulina or chlorella. On certain days I'll have a plain greek yogurt mixed with lemon juice and honey.

I like to have ceareal with a tablespoon of phsyllium husks on top and a desertspoon of honey and a good sprinkling of cinnamon on top of that, and before that I have two glasses of warm water, and a cup of african Rooi boss tea after breakfast.
Daughter inlaw said she has just started putting chia seeds on her breakfast and she said they are quite filling so I am going to give them a try when I buy some.

when i wake up i have about 50 oz of water. 10 mins later a green drink. 10 mins later a protein shake and maybe some fruit.

About an hour after that i have oatmeal with walnuts, fruit, and cinnamon, and 1-2 eggs. Then I have a raw honey/coconut oil concoction.

I just started eating chia seeds to. If you let them sit in water they make a gel. I mix water with cacao powder and stevia then put the chia seeds in. It makes a chocolate rice pudding type snack.

Typical breakfast. Two scramble eggs with a little cheese and sliced ham thrown in. Plus a glass of milk. For Variety I might substitute bacon or sausage.:lol:
Occasionally I might have a bowl of cereal.

That "gel" is a soluble fiber which binds bile acids and stops them from being absorbed and your liver cannot make extra cholesterol. probably a good thing.

I'm guessing you don't leave your house to go to work? Seems time consuming

You caught me. I just graduated college and I tam taking the summer off. Although, last semester I had morning class at 8:25 am and still managed my routine, minus the green drink. I just started the green drink this summer.

I have oatmeal with cinnamon and whatever fruit I have on hand most mornings. Sometimes to change it up I eat some eggs. Every once in a while I have a green a salad for breakfast--is that strange?

Years ago when I gave up breakfast cereals I began to open my mind to eat soups and non-traditional type breakfasts. When I eat protein and veggies and coconut oil I feel really good. Nuts, seeds and yogurt is really good too.

Right now I'm drinking Amazing Grass Green SuperFood original. I've tried their berry and chocolate flavor, but I like original the best. I'll eventually start taking Vitamineral Green when I get some more moo-la.

I think cereals for me was one of the worst thing I did for years, even when trying to find healthy cereals. Processed foods and carbs is about all I got and a few hours later I was starving.

A lot of people eat oatmeal, which the problem I had with steel cut oatmeal was how much of a pain it was to make and by itself it tastes like nothing, so I had to add a lot of stuff to it and I kept trying to get creative. It's just so much easier for me to make a smoothy or eggs in the morning.
I found some instant or 5 minute steel cut oatmeal from the store, but even that in the microwave would always spill over or it was one headache or another.

4-6 different types of raw fruits/berries, a glass of fruit juice (8 fruit blend), and 2 hard-boiled eggs (1 yolk to the cat). 1.5-2 hours later, a homemade granola bar (easy, cheap, healthy, customizable, and very filling).

You gotta love the produce selection we have nowadays.

It is rare that I break my fast before 11:30 AM. I normally have a mug of hot water. In the winter, I have a cup or 2 of tea or occasional coffee. If I'm really hungry earlier, I will put a slab of cheese on bread and toast it in the toaster oven - wah la - cheese toast.

If I'm traveling, I do have breakfast. Who knows when I'll have time for lunch?

I eat pretty much the same thing every morning around 10AM. - fresh berries with cottage cheese on top.
I sprinkle sea salt & 3 tsp Ultra hot cayenne pepper powder on the cottage cheese. The Cayenne keeps my knees
and back free from arthritic pain. :D
On weekends I may fix 2 scrambled eggs w/chopped onion, green pepper, torn fresh spinach in coconut oil
plus 1/2 slice of toasted Ezekial bread. i also sprinkle on the 3 tsp of the cayenne powder.

Seems to me there is too much reliance on fruit and fructose.
I think it may be helpful if people tried to understand the potential dangers of too much fructose.

Dietary fructose and risk of metabolic syndrome in adults: Tehran Lipid and Glucose study


Sugar: The Bitter Truth
While I'm sure SEASONAL fruits would have been on the diet of our early ancestors I think there is generally a regrettable absence of meat and fish from the breakfasts so far mentioned.
I generally fry up (in coconut oil) what's left from last nights meal, if there are any leftover meat or veggies, if not it's bacon and eggs for me. So high fat and protein and low carbohydrates for me.
