I would love some new healthy ideas. My usual is oatmeal with walnuts and a piece of fruit, but that gets boring after a while. We do eggs a few times a month (not my favorite thing in the morning) and I'm too cold for smoothies!

Hard-boiled egg and a handful of Goldfish crackers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:. I'm going to have a grapefruit as my mid-morning snack, though. I like to spread my meals out.

My "hot chocolate" protein shake and a cup of high protein yogurt. Then I was still a little hungry so I had a hard pretzel.<br><br>
Now I'm wondering what I'm going to eat for lunch

I am on a Kashi cereal kick (need the fiber!) with chopped up strawberry and whatever other fruit I have on hand. I also like whole wheat waffles with trader joe's low sugar fruit preserves on top.

I had oat bran with butter and salt and then an hour later, two pieces of horseradish cheddar cheese <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I am an egg lover and after going over the protein "requirements" with my MW, I was shocked. I eat a very high protein diet and that was even a stretch for me. And I realized I was falling short on the green veggies. So I decided to whip up a crustless quiche this am.<br><br>
I cook up some frozen spinach and line the bottom of a pie dish with it. I added a layer of ham (lunchmeat is what I had on hand), then cheese, then mushrooms and then poured over a mixture of 5 eggs and some milk. Bake for 30 mins. It makes 4-6 servings. So I have a high protein, green veggie, quick and easy BF for the next few days.<br><br>
ETA: I have also made this with (canned <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> asparagus instead of spinach.

I think eggs don't like me this pregnancy. So I haven't been able to have anymore. The past week I've been eating Raisin Bran and an apple. Last week I was eating Oatmeal and wheat toast with peanut butter.

This morning was turkey sausages and sliced apples. We are doing a trial run of egg-free and grain-free for ds in addition to already being dairy, soy, gluten and nut free <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I'm having to be super creative.

I caved to advertising -- I saw a commercial last night where they poured warm milk over a bowl of Shredded Wheat, so I made that this morning and it was really good! Not a far cry from oatmeal, I know, but at least it's something a little bit different.

hey, I'm going to have to try those egg "pancakes"!! I think my boys would love them.<br><br>
We have whole grain waffles (spelt and buckwheat I think they are... we get the mix from a local grainery), eggs - usually scrambled but really in any form, bagels, fruit, oatmeal, steel cut oats (we go back and forth between the two for texture change), homemade granola (has sesame, flax, almonds, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds in it), smoothies, yogurt, hashbrowns, hmmm... any combo of the above.<br><br>
Sometimes I'll make bread or muffins at night (like banana, pumpkin, applesauce etc) and serve it with a nut butter for a quick breakfast with fruit. I just bought a glass cake stand with a dome and I have found that if I fill it at night - and leave it out - it buys me a couple extra minutes in bed (the boys just "help" themselves).

Thanks for all the great ideas!

Try kasha (toasted buckwheat), instead of oatmeal. It's really good with chopped dried apples, date pieces, walnuts, maple syrup, and a little cardamom & milk/soy milk. I've also done quinoa/steel-cut oatmeal mix this way for more protein.<br><br>
French toast is also a favorite, with good hearty bread.

My standard breakfast: a bowl of Wheaties with soymik (that is enhanced with Omega-3's), a banana, and water.<br><br>
Actually breakfast and lunch kind of merge into one another. I pretty much continue to eat until after lunch time, then there is a bit of a break before dinner.
