Thanks for these.

If we're talking about porridge, what sort of quantity of oats?

Eggy bread

Nice omellette

Eggs are a good breakfast

Poached egg, slice of wholemeal toast, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms done in the microwave...

Boiled egg and toast.

(porridge is fab but don't know about exact quantitis because v lazily I use the individual packets of Quakers - you just empty the packet into the bowl, add the milk, into the microwave - done).

I do this sometimes on a Sunday...

Put a handful of quartered mushrooms in a pan with a small amount of butter and cook. When nearly done, add a handful of cherry tomatoes cut in half. Add a few twists of black pepper.

Put two pieces of brown toast on a plate, put mushroom/tomato mixture on top and then put a poached egg on the top of that.

I think it is a lovely breakfast and sort of healthy smile

My husband's fave breakfast is clafoutis e.g. here.

We usually have porridge (2 x 20g serving scoops) and toast.

An alternative is 2 poached eggs on toast.

We very, very occasionally might have a cooked breakfast with bacon, mushroom, tomatoes +/- egg.

I use two and a half tablespoons of porridge oats. I also added chopped apple and raisins. So yummy.

We put blueberries in 30 seconds before the porridge is finished. Yum.

I find one slice of wholemeal toast with baked beans (I do 2/3 of a 200g can) and a tiny sprinkling of cheese is filling and low fat.

Wholemeal toast with boiled/poached egg is good too.

I think it's more filling to have a little bit of protein and a little bit of carbohydrates rather than 2 slices of toast or a huge bowl of porridge.

Protein at breakfast will fill you up more than carbs. So beans, eggs, bacon, tofu etc are all good. I also try to get in at least 2 fruit or veg as otherwise I struggle to eat enough during the day.

There is a saying that goes something along the lines of breakfast like a king, lunch like a lord, dine like a pauper as it is meant to better for your body to eat most earlier in the day.
