Breakfast

Postby cheryl » Sat Sep 23, 2006 12:40 pm

need help with low carb breakfasts that aren't egg based, they're not my favourite. Need to be easy and quick before work ones. Thanks for help.

One of my fav's is an alpine muslie (great for a summer breakfast) it's full of energy that gives you a full feeling that will see you through till lunch time, yet still helps you louse weight.

Alpine Muesli
1 apple (finely chopped with skin on)
1 orange (chopped)
1 cup of raw oatmeal
1 cup of yoplus low fat plain yogurt

Banana Smoothy's are good for a quick filling brekkie aswell.

I use this recipe
1 banana
1/2 cup low fat milk
1/2 cup diet yoghurt
1 tsp honey
cinnamon

blend all together. You can add two tablespoons of quick cooking oats to this as it is not much carbs, but gives you an extra bit of energy.

Another really easy one if you dont mind a piece of toast with it is to cook up some zucchini, tomato, onion and mushrooms in a small amount of vegetable stock and thicken with a little bit of cornflour. This is really yummy and filling! (as you need a quick one for work, you could cook it up the night before, then just quickly reheat in the microwave in the morning)

Is porridge a good breakfast. i use rolled oats and a dash of skinny milk.
all the processed cereals are so full of sugar and unnecessary for my poor overweight body :lol:
the alpine muesli sounds yummo, i'll try it.

I think a porridge can be made out of peas, rolled oats, chowder etc... it's what it's called when it's cooked, so I've gone back to correct the above alpine muslie recipe to put in the word oatmeal instead of porridge.

Oats are a great breakfast food. Plenty of carbs for energy but low in sugar with a moderate amount of fat and protein. A nice little start for the day. Not so sure about the 'flavoured' ones though.

I just had porridge this morning for breakkie!!

Just quick cook oats, hot water, a little low fat milk and some sultanas and currants all cooked up topped with LSA (ground linseed sunflower and almonds).

Yummo!!
