  • 'Easy' Breakfasts

    I have lived off bacon and scrambled egg for many a month, I am still not tired of it (will I ever get tired? (no)). But I am interested to see what other 'easy' breakfasts there are out there.

    I would like to try and get more eggs in to my diet, so perhaps more omelletes are on the cards?

    What cool easy breakfasts do you guys get in on a regular basis?

    i boil 8-12 eggs each morning and eat them as the day goes. maybe i will pop 2 immediately, or 4, and have 6 or 3 at 2pm.

      i usually just reheat some dinner leftovers.

      if you want more eggs, look up some egg muffin recipes...combos for meat/eggs/veg are pretty much endless.

        I really like the pork and radish has from the PB Quick and Easy Recipes cookbook. If you cut everything up the night before, it's a cinch (and a great way to use up leftover pork).

          If you eat dairy, a nice bowl of full fat greek yogurt with some berries or cut up fruit is a nice quick breakfast. It is not the most filling option, but if times a factor, you can't get much quicker than that.

          As Kennelmom suggested, left overs is also a great choice, since it probably only requires a few minutes in the microwave to heat up.

          I sometimes bake fish in the morning for breakfast. Pop a piece of salmon in the oven for 15min and you are ready to go. A nice alternative to the normal breakfast flair.

            I like to make egg casseroles. I just fried up some pork sausage, added onions and shredded zucchini, some Rotel type stuff (tomato bits and peppers). Drain off grease and put in a glass casserole dish. Cover with beaten eggs. Add seasoning and maybe some cheese. Stir to mix ingredients, bake at 350 until golden brown on top (maybe 30-45 minutes).
            It keeps well in the fridge, and can be cut up and eaten on the run.

              The easiest breakfast and the healthiest breakfast are one in the same - no breakfast. I consider breakfast the most important meal to skip a day. Well, I shouldn't say that entirely. My breakfast is the same - a 12oz cup of extra dark black coffee with 25 drops of stevia extract. There's probably around 3 or 4 calories in the coffee in there somewhere, and the taste of sweetness may cause some marginal rise in insulin, so maybe I'm cheating a little.

              If you don't want to give up your breakfast, I found the following to be extremely effective.

              Buy a 12-cup non-stick cupcake pan. Crack 12 eggs, scramble them and mix in what you want. I used to do 2 or 3 finely chopped mushrooms, 3 crumbled strips of bacon, a handful of shredded cheddar and some cracked black pepper. Pour it evenly into the 12 muffin trays and bake at 350*F for 10-15 minutes or until done to your liking. Each muffin equates to one egg with a marginal amount of mushroom, bacon and cheese. Eat as many or as little as you want each morning.

              I limit dairy on most days, particularly fermented dairy. Yogurt in particular causes a massive insulin spike that makes white bread blush with modesty, so I limit my yogurt intake to post-workout meals. If you're looking to lose body fat, I advise avoiding dairy, especially fermented dairy, except at times where you want the insulin surge.

                This. I hard boil eggs during the week and eat those in the a.m. I don't have time to make them each morning, so I do it on my lunch hour or on the weekend or whenever I have time. i effing LOVE hard-boiled eggs!!!! i eat them with fancy gourmet salt *pinky out*

                also, I bought some plain full fat yogurt, but I hate it lol but i eat it because i bought it. but i'm thinking it's not worth it and i should just stop being cheap about it because it's better to enjoy your food while you eat it. but, it's definitely convenient for me to keep the yogurt in the fridge at work (no one else here wants to eat full fat yogurt; win!) i sprinkle stevia on it to tolerate it xD

                  I will make a batch of hamburgers, chicken legs, or sausages. Put in freezer. Nuke while prepping kid's lunch. Eat.

                      I only eat breakfast on carb-up days, so I usually eat sweet potato or banana with egg whites or half a can of tuna or crab meat. I either mush the potato/banana and micro it with the egg whites into a souffle of sorts, or roast it and then pour egg whites over it for hash-browns. I make eggs and egg white (ew sub for milk) omlette with mushrooms, cheese and veggies for my husband every day.

                      The other fast foods that I could have eaten for breakfast if I ate breakfast would bee Shiritake noodles crisped up on a dry pan with some egg-white and stevia. Mushes of cauilflower or butternut squash work well too. Broth or broth with shiritake mushrooms are great. Salted salmon with cucumbers....

                      Okay, gotta shut up. It is making me hungry!

                        Most days: heat pan, insert fat, fry 2 eggs with/without bacon or faggots or leftover meat bits according to taste. Dump handfuls of salad on plate, add eggs, add butter to egg yolks.

                        Sometimes: stuff handful of leaves + home made yoghourt and/or coconut + frozen fruit + whey protein + water into mini-liquidiser; make smoothie.

                        Occasionally, if I'm not really hungry: yoghourt + coconut in some form + fruit.

                        Also occasionally: leftovers. Usually there aren't any.

                          As I ran out of eggs on the weekend (sacrilige I know!), I made myself a smoothie with coconut milk, half a hand full of macadamias and a hand full of blueberries, with some cinnamon. Was quite yummy and filling! Quick and very easy.

                            Fry a gorgeous, enormous, huge steak - but undercook it a little to what you normally prefer. Then I cut it into 4 ounce portions or so, and freeze or fridge. In the morning, I put it in the pan as my eggs cook to heat it through. I adore steak and eggs with butter drizzled over it all! And its ready in the time it takes to cook the eggs, like 3 min, no mess, no fuss!

                              Other great quick breakfasts:

                              half an avocado with salt and sprinkle of lemon juice.

                              I know it sounds gross, but microwaved scrambled eggs with a little mayo mixed in after its cooked is ULTRA fast and I think its yummy!

                              Leftovers are great too!
