I now try to eat the same breakfast but will alternate a little now and then. My breakfast beverage depends on my mood of the morning.

#1: 1 slice whole grain toast with cream cheese, red grapes OR fresh strawberries, coffee or green tea

#2: 1/2 cup cottage cheese, fresh fruit preferably fresh berries or red grapes, coffee or green tea

#3: 1 fried egg or 2 egg veggie omelet, whole grain toast, dab of ketchup, 1/2 apple, coffee or tea

I like to chew on something instead of just drinking, as in a protein drink. It just doesn't feel substantial enough for me.

I now take fish oil, Vitamin D, a low dose multi-vitamin, zinc, calcium in the form of Tums (offsets the acids in coffee)...and Kyolic, a Japanese odorless garlic supplement. I eat a lot of Vitamin C-rich foods and I don't want to risk toxicity.

It may not seem like a lot of food at breakfast but as a diabetic, I eat often. I eat a mid-morning snack of nuts, cheese, yogurt, veggies sticks with hummus, etc.

Lori -

We're all different, and that's fine! When I wake up I don't feel like chewing on anything. I'm just not hungry. The shake is the most I can manage. I know I have to have it for health reasons.

As I just have a shake in the morning, having 2 eggs plus toast plus an apple seems like a lot to me smile.

I have about 3 variations that I choose from.

1. spinach, kale, carrot juice, 2 strawberries, 2 pineapple chunks and a banana. I mix it up in my Ninja, throw the top on and enjoy.

2. 1 egg white on wheat toast, sometimes a slice a cheese

3. Any cold cereal and fat-free organic milk. My current fav is Honey Bunches of Oats, Cinnamon Crunch. (It's horrible because it's loaded with sugar but it has 5g of Fiber). But it's so delicious. I may have this one a week.

1) Eggs w/vegetables
2) Green juice w/lemon & ginger (no other fruits; this drink creates a wonderful calm in me)
3) or oatmeal & bacon (this one is a treat)

my typical breakfast during winter is:
1 small slice homemade sourdough bread, toasted with butter, plus one ounce of mild cheese fried in the skillet covered with corn kernels. (The cheese crisps up when fried - like bacon). mid-morning one or two tangerines.

Summer breakfast is usually a shake of apple juice, frozen bananas and cherry yogurt.

Dear Lisa ,

I am not a great cook even if I have been living alone ,ohhh for about 35 to 40 years .Started having breakfast at home.
This morning made an omelet.What an omelet .I was almost out of milk ,burned it a little.I ate it .Nothing to brag about,something more to bring a smile on people's face.

Yes, Barb, this is the point I'm finally understanding. I complicate my life far too much.

And Lisa, you're right about what is "a lot" to eat. I eat too much. In the past, breakfasts would be last night's leftovers or a three-egg omelet, starchy side (potatoes or rice), sausage/bacon, toast, fruit, coffee.

This morning, I made a ONE egg omelet with some fresh spinach (Yvonnie, thanks for the idea to add veggies to breakfast! To me, a novel idea!) A slice of 12 grain toast with a small smear of cream cheese instead of butter, coffee. No fruit.
