Oatmeal with a glorious amount of blueberries and spoon of maple syrup. It was divine!

2 eggs over medium, 2 slices sauteed prosciutto, heap of sauteed kale + onions with mixed greens and fresh raspberries.

My friend got me into sauteed prosciutto, crisps up like bacon but thinner and a pack from costco has ~50 slices in it and gets you 25-50 breakfasts depending on how indulgent you want to be!  2 bundles of organic kale is ~$3 and onions are cost effective as well.  Giant box of salad from costco is like $6 and lasts for multiple meals a day for close to a week.

I keep a big container of sauteed kale + onions in the fridge, can top most breakfast/lunches with it.  Eggs and prosciutto fry up consecutively in same pan in either coconut oil or EVOO. 
Raspberries are a rare treat as they are ungodly expensive.  Summertime get them off the bush in the backyard.

Wow, what a crazy thread.  It's always a breakfast taco and/or banana.  Always a stiff coffee.  But holy crap people are elaborate about their breakfasts here.  I usually only get there by dinner, if I don't skip that entirely most times.  Lunch is my grounding meal of the day.  Sometimes I work out too hard to have a decent dinner, but have a banana and taco for breakfast first before that.  Sometimes I lounge and only need a banana for breakfast the next day.  People's lives seem so complicated and indulgent on these little things.  I honestly never really think about this, nor do I hope to ever indulge obscenely on breakfast in an attempt to waste the day on it being too overly important.  It certainly should not control the rest the the day.

To each their own? Why would you think it controls the rest of the day? That seems like a strange takeaway where people post what they eat.

Anyway.
-Espresso w/milk
-Egg w/kale & spinach

Judgmental much?


I eat peanut butter toast ever damn day except for days like today when I needed to be on the road at 0430; those days it's a protein bar in the car. But I don't think folks who cook a breakfast are letting it control the day. And if I did, I wouldn't say so as it's none of my business.

LOL.  When I indulge obscenely in breakfast, it's usually a late breakfast on the weekend, then we skip lunch and eat dinner.  I would never let lunch ground and control me on the weekend! :)

Today was a quick breakfast burrito - 3 homegrown eggs, scrambled with homegrown green chile and some sharp cheddar and folded into a tortilla with some extra hot sauce for good measure.

My "indulgent" morning consists of delicious espresso that is super complicated and takes me 5 whole minutes to make. Sometimes if I really want to slow my morning down, I'll add almond milk to it. But I don't always have time to open the fridge, that's a lot of effort!
I like to eat an apple and yogurt in the morning too, but I don't want breakfast to control my life, so I only allow myself to have it once a week!

I sense that your breakfast has truly started to control you, so I do think you might want to look into a different option. Just, chew the beans directly?

I made blueberry muffins this morning with buttermilk I froze a couple weeks ago.  Also threw in lemon flavoring and chopped up a banana from the freezer.  Had them with crispy bacon and ramen eggs (firm whites, runny yolks).   So yum!

@horsepoor sounds delish! I too was just thinking about what kind of muffins to make for next week's meal prep. Maybe some strawberry-chocolate chip muffins.

Looks like cherry almond it is!  Which is a favorite around here!  I have just about 1 cup of frozen cherries in the freezer, rescued from my fridge this summer.  This is the last of them.

@CutTheFat do you just deseed the cherries and send them straight into the freezer. I don't buy them often, but it has crossed my mind a few times to figure out how to freeze them for later use.

I made this strawberry-chocolate muffin recipe. Teaching DD's friends how to bake. They came out good. But I would like to add walnuts next time I think. I used Greek yogurt. Batter a bit thick because of it. Just adding Tbsp of almond milk to the batter did the trick. Muffins for week. Check, done.

Yes, that's exactly how I do it.  I've used them in smoothies and muffins and they are great.

Yesterday, I made 5 grain hot cereal for breakfast with cranberries, raisins, almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, Truvia, maple extract, and egg whites. Winco sells this cereal over in the bulk section and I highly recommend it. I think it might even be BRM, but I forget. Anyway, I had some leftover, so I took it to work for breakfast. Looks like I might have breakfast from the leftovers till Wednesday. Also, 12oz of coffee with unsweetened almond milk and Truvia.

My post count is plenty high already. I post to get ideas from others and perhaps to give others some new ideas. I eat oatmeal plenty of mornings, but smoked salmon from Sam’s Club is nice, too.

Toasted sourdough bread with cream cheese and avocado, black coffee.   Second breakfast in a few hours will be egg and cheese on a toasted English muffin.  (I'm up and going by 4 am every day. I eat second breakfast at work around 9:00)

Peanut butter toast as usual, but today I have chickory in my coffee (an expensive treat, which is ironic as it started as a cheap coffee substitute). I'm going to have to start growing chickory.
