What do you eat for breakfast? Preferably non-cooked.

At the moment (only a few days in) I'm relying on weetabix and fruit but that nabs all of my healthy B and some of my healthy A too.

Love the idea of the full English without the really tasty bits bacon fat hash browns and toast but that isn't manageable on the days I am working. Don't have time and also don't want to smell or bacon for the rest of the day!

Any great ideas please! Thanks so much.

4 boiled eggs legtbyo go cold with a smattering of salt.

Or, fruit and fat free yoghurt.

Generally though, I have cooked cooks, beans and mushrooms. Takes 10 mins.

That should say cooked eggs!

Overnight oats for me.
40g of oats
A load of fruit
A muller light tipped in and mix it all up.
(Some people layer it, but I find the oats don't soak in that way.)
You can make it the night before, or half an hour in the fridge is fine too.

Or sweet omelette, that's quick and easy.
Whisk 2 eggs with sweetener and cook as a pancake. It's lovely with yogurt or syn a bit of jam!

if I'm organised then I chop melon, strawberries, pineapple, raspberries and blackberries on a Sunday night and put them in glass Kilner jars in the fridge - the fruit will last four days in glass, top it with natural fat free yoghurt and 40g of Dorset cereal muesli (the nutty one) - this is delish!

Or overnight oats as per PP I use frozen raspberries and vanilla muller light. Again you can make this three days in advance if you have glass jars

If I am at home then chopped ham, mushrooms and spring onions mixed with 2 beaten eggs and microwaved in 30 second bursts (stir in between) until cooked on 2 slices of whole meal toast

Thanks so much. I will try the overnight oats. I'm trying to avoid sweetener as I have huge concerns about its safety. What could I substitute the muller light for? Has anyone found a good way to sweeten things without using sweetener?

The worst thing is I have a really sweet tooth. I miss sugar blush

I just use oats and milk and add fruit. Soak the oats in the milk overnight, it looks like wallpaper paste but it tastes ok and it is very very filling.

Tea spoon of honey (1syn) with fat free natural yoghurt, a chopped banana and berries.

northerny Sat 29-Apr-17 11:14:41

Overnight oats made with fat free fromage frais here.

Wh0Kn0wsWhereTheTimeGoes Sat 29-Apr-17 11:36:43

0 fat Greek Yogurt plus a teaspoon of maple syrup for me. Apart from Diet Coke, which I love, I'm not keen on sweeteners.

SandraIsaidSandra Sat 29-Apr-17 11:47:18

Great!! I'm going to try the overnight oats tonight. Thanks.

i just make hot porridge with water instead of milk, tastes fine with fruit in it, sometimes a little fat-free Greek yoghurt on top. Great thread for ideas!

Selection of fruit - breakfast is eaten on the go.

Soft boiled eggs with asparagus spears/Gannon chunks used as soldiers. Or two scan bran 1/3 B choice topped with tinned tomatoes. I heat the Tom's in a small frying pan and poaching an egg in it too. I got to warn you scan bran is an acquired taste but it's fab with hot tinned toms

If I'm working in the morning, I go for a bowl of porridge with frozen fruit made with water and mix in a yoghurt. Or I have had scrambled eggs with spinach and mushrooms or an omelette.

Eggy muffins could be made the night before.

I was debating whether or not to go back to SW or join WW, and your firsdt post has made me realise that SW is actually quite limiting. At least with No Count at WW, skimmed milk and oats don;t have to be measured out.

Mini baseless quiche.

Use a bun tin, you can put a piece of ham in first to make a base if you like. I've tried with and without and both hold together fine.

Fill the bun tins with any bits you fancy in quiche. Cooked first to reduce the liquid content. Mushrooms, ham, tomato, asparagus, smoked salmon etc.

Whisk/blitz together a pot of fat free cottage cheese and 6 eggs. Poor over the top. You can sprinkle some grate cheese from ha if you want, but I don't find it necessary.

Cook until golden brown.

Can be eaten hot or cold, actually find them better cold. Very filling and tasty.

Never quite understood why on SW fat free natural yoghurt is free but skimmed milk isn't. I use my milk allowance in coffees then have to syn milk in porridge.

InfiniteSheldon Sun 30-Apr-17 19:22:39

Yogurt has a higher satiety value in proportion to calories. To be Free a good has to be both low calorie and filling; yogurt is milk isn't.

MrsPnut Sun 30-Apr-17 19:27:42

I layer my overnight oats with greek yoghurt on the bottom, then oats and then some frozen fruit on the top. The fruit defrosting overnight soaks into the oats and makes them delicious.
I like a mix of frozen berries and the tesco frozen breakfast topper and I find that sweetens the mix enough.

I also make little omelette/quiche things with ham and grated cheese and also beaten egg. I use an egg per muffin hole although can usually make 7 out of 6 eggs. I take them for breakfast on the go or for lunch at work (give them a minute in the microwave) served with a salad.

LaGattaNera Sun 30-Apr-17 19:34:00

interesting - thanks

Melon and grapes,
Yogurt, fat free Greek with a teaspoon of honey,
Beans on toast
Boiled eggs with soldiers
Cheese on toast

I tried overnight oats once and it was like eating cold vomitenvy I didn't try it again!
