I would stick with oats; oats have many nutrients. Nuts and seed are in the "fat" category. Very moderate consumption is recommended by various health authorities.

My breakfast probably ranges around 450 to 600 calories. I am one of those "three square meals" dudes, although I do find a good snack between lunch and dinner to work nicely.

Nuts, as some said - are fatty. However, the fats in nuts are good. You can easily eat two servings of nuts - on a well planned diet - without worrying.

Ughhhh... I 've tried the plain and Herb 'n Garlic Better Than Cream Cheese a few times. I find it odd tasting, and unsastisfying. Not to metion the hydrogenated oil.

For a bagel, I would rather just have some natural PB and fruit jelly.

Toffuti cuties on the other hand

I have a recipe for cream cheese, and while it has been quite a while - I believe that it tastes close to the same as dairy-ridden cream cheese.

I'm a fan of a toasted bagel with miso and tahini for breakfast. Sounds weird, but it's really yummy and keeps me full until the afternoon.

I love a big Sunday brunch, though - pancakes, veggie bacon, tofu scramble, roasted potatoes, fresh fruit...breakfast is definitely the best meal of the day.

That's me, too. I'm just not a morning person, so I'm all about the grab and go breakfast. I almost always grab something to eat at my desk. The quality of my breakfast on any given day has a lot to do with how late I'm running and how good the grabbable options are.

I often eat fruit, muffins, trail mix, yogurt, or dry cereal. Anything that requires no prep. If I miraculously have more time, I might have toast w/ PB&J or put oatmeal, soymilk, fruit & nuts in a container to microwave at work.

Haha... I'm awake, dressed, and out the door in under five minutes, so breakfast for me is always something like fruit and tea, dry cereal, or just a glass of juice. I've gotten in the habit of keeping fruit, granola bars and organic fruit leathers in my bag, so if I don't eat enough at breakfast I always have something to snack on, although I think I may want to ditch the fruit leathers. I love them, but latley even the smallest bit of sugar sends me into hyperactive orbit. ^.^

lol, I dunno, just trying to think of a combination that wouldn't be good with fruit. I think durian would taste OK with pasta, if you're into that kind of thing, so I guess I failed.

Holy poop. I just had breakfast - I usually have oatmeal with soymilk. But I was listening to one of the compassionate cooks podcasts about blueberries, and realized I had some nice, wild, organic ones in my freezer. So I cooked my oatmeal with some cinnamon and vanilla (mmm) and in the last minute or so, I added about 3/4 cup of blueberries. It was REALLY good, I would highly recommend it.

Oh - I also stirred in a spoonful of brown sugar before I put it in my bowl. Yumma.

At my work, we have "3 Bears"... it's Oatmeal served with milk, brown sugar, candied pecans, and raisins. The pecans, sugar and whole milk aren't the best, but my customers tell me it's very good.

I like McCann's Brown sugar oatmeal! Yummmmmmm!

I'm glad you mentioned the Compassionate cook podcasts, I have subscribed and they are very interesting and informative. I love pod casts!

For me, a good breakfast is something that keeps me full through the morning -- no small feat given that I walk to work (1 hour/5 km). No idea how many calories this is.

I love smoothies but my biggest problem has always ben making too much smoothie for the container I have. I solved this problem by pouring the remainder into ice trays and freezing them. I store the frozen cubes in baggies and they are super-convenient for hurried mornings. The fun thing about this is if you don't label your cubes, it's kind of a smorgasborg of fruit smoothie fun. I once had a blackberry, strawberry, banana, carrot smoothie. Sooooo good!
