Question of the Week, Week 2 BL

What is your go-to food for a healthy breakfast?

For me?
It used to always be 2 eggs, 1 piece of toast, with veggies or salsa.  I ate that for breakfast every day, for probably... 5 or 6 years!  Now, my favorite thing is quick oats.  Because I can take them work, they keep me full for a LONG time, and I can change the flavors on a whim! :-)
This morning, I had spiced apples, cinnamon, and chia in it.

Trader Joe's apple cranberry bran muffin. They're really dense and chewy, 80 calories and 14 grams of fiber. I usually have one with lite cream cheese and coffee. Then a little later I have some fruit; baby nana, pear, apple, mango, whatever I've got... yummmm

My breakfast usually is a protein shake.

- 1 scoop of whey protein
- unsweetened cocoa
- dash of xanthan gum
- dash of cayenne pepper
- dash of cinnamon
- dash of salt
- 1/4 cup of a DaVinci sugarfree syrup
- dash of liquid stevia
- TBSP peanut butter
- water
- ice
and blend.

It's good, filling, low in carbs and I can drink it on the road to work.

I used to eat oatmeal every morning! Best breakfast ever. But now I have to eat on the way to work - I usually pack up a whole wheat bagel with hummus. Lately I have been thinking about protein shakes but not sure they will fill me up...

I make a fruit smoothie.. this consists of the yoplait frozen smoothie mix (I like the pineapple, strawberry mango) while you basically just mix up half the pack it calls for 1 cup of skim milk-- instead of skim milk I use light vanilla soy milk with a shot of asai juice and sometimes a little pineapple orange juice as well-- the whole smoothie is about 16 oz and keeps me full for a while-- mid morning I'll eat some "breakfast trail mix"
