this morning was a huge rush to get everyone dressed and out the door as i had an appointment to keep (note to self - make sure appointments are later than 9.30am from now on ) so i missed breakfast *sniff*

i have got myself used to eating..

1 apple

1 orange

1 huge slice of watermelon

all chopped up, topped with 1/2 a soy yogurt and pour some soy milk over the top. mix and enjoy!

am i being a good girl or what?! lol

i will get on to trying some breakfast cereals when i've got more used to soy milk (as i'm still a n00b hehe)

what do u guys start the day off with?

Porridge the last few days, with cinnamon, brown sugar and a banana, and with a handful of wheatgerm thrown in. Sometimes I put semolina in instead, because it makes the porridge go all lovely and creamy. You can make enough of the plain oats and water stuff to last a few days, just heat it in the micowave each morning with some extra soy milk, it's the best comfort food that is good for you, ever.

Black coffe and toast, with Avacado and Tomato is my other fave. Yum! Specially with freshly picked basil.

GhostUser 08-18-2003 08:37 AM

Grits, Oatmeal, bagel, or a banana and a cup of soy milk. Usually one of those. One the weekends I usually make something special like pecan pancakes or tofu scramble.

GhostUser 08-18-2003 08:43 AM

normally a kids cereal like lIfe or froot loops in soymilk. and some fruit when it's in season..

sometiems i'll be "bad" and eat chocolate pudding cake, but that's not very often.

Rie 08-18-2003 08:49 AM

Usually a few bowls of cereal, some coffee, and a piece of whole wheat toast covered with peanut butter and maple syrup on top. I ALWAYS make time to sit and relax and enjoy some breakfast.

spa_girl 08-18-2003 09:03 AM

Usually one of the following (w/a glass of orange juice):

peanut butter on whole wheat toast


whole wheat waffles w/lite syrup

egg whites on whole wheat toast

cranberry nut muffin

rabid_child 08-18-2003 09:09 AM

Either a bowl of cereal with rice milk or a bowl of oatmeal. Sometimes a banana as well.

kraftykraft 08-18-2003 09:11 AM

Cereal with vanilla soymilk is my usual breakfast. I love cereal. In the winter, I like hot oatmeal. When I am at my parents house on the weekends, I will eat a muffin and fruit, or a granola bar.

NDvegan85 08-18-2003 09:27 AM

I am also a big cereal fan, and I am addicted to fruit. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry a Luna bar hits the spot. Today was a treat though- I had some homemade blueberry cake! Now I'm getting hungry...

sandiemac 08-18-2003 09:29 AM

i'm a creature of habit and eat the same breakfast everyday and get cranky if i have to substitute

puffed millet cereal

plain soymilk

i get to eat the whole bowl if i have it at work but at home i have to share with at least one parrot (which i guess is fine since my husband thinks it's puffed bird seed anyway )

GhostUser 08-18-2003 10:09 AM

I have a bowl of oatmeal (with splenda and cinnamon), plus a peach or apple almost every day.

GhostUser 08-18-2003 10:10 AM

hmm oatmeal seems a firm fave, gonna have to try it methinks!

*puts on shopping list*

808veggie 08-18-2003 10:31 AM

Maple & Brown SUgar oatmeal & a glass of Soymilk!

PunkRockRapunzL 08-18-2003 10:34 AM

Multiple bowls of cereal w/ a banana

Non-frosted Poptarts or cereal bars



I used to make eggbeaters for protein but they taste weird to me now..and I prefer something sweet in the morning.

cookingVeg 08-18-2003 10:40 AM

toast (today it was homemade bread from the bread machine) with margarine and honey or molasses

fruit (whatever's handy, today a banana)


stellar26 08-18-2003 10:56 AM

I rarely eat breakfast, in all honesty.

When I do it generally consists of oatmeal or toast with fruit.

Ntelligentidiot 08-18-2003 11:23 AM


Plain bagel w/ reduced fat margarine

A banana


Other times I'll have cereal, such as Special K red berries, with soymilk and a bit of fruit. And usually I drink orange juice with breakfast instead. Or sometimes i'll have a bagel with hummus. But today's breakfast is pretty typical. I always take a multivitamin with breakfast(it's the vegetarian kind.)

GhostUser 08-18-2003 11:28 AM

I like grits with strawberry preserves. Lately, I've had rice cereal with half a banana( ) sliced up and mixed in almost everyday. If not that, I make myself a salad. Oh, and I drink loads of coffee: at least half a pot (I'm an addict.).

CharityAJO 08-18-2003 12:56 PM

For me it's usually a bowl of mixed cereal (usually granola and cornflakes - cornflakes are vitamin fortified, granola for protein and fat, therefore satiety) with soy or rice milk.

Or sometimes a bagel w/ PB, almond butter, etc and a glass of OJ to wash it down.

dk_art 08-18-2003 01:10 PM

pretty much everytime a bowl of Nature's Path flakes (not "corn flakes") and a big handful of raisins and soy milk.

sometimes make pancakes , damper dogs (risen bread rough fried in a bit of oil and molasses pour on after), or creme of wheat with raisins

Quizeen 08-18-2003 01:28 PM

I usually have sprouted grain toast with almond butter and whatever fruit is in season. Sometimes I'll have a plain bagel though. Always there is coffee (just a medium size, though, I'm trying to be moderate).

I wish I liked hot cereal, especially oatmeal, but I can't stand it. Any hot cereal makes me gag uncontrollably.

VegiBoB 08-18-2003 01:44 PM

i either have... toast with jam on it, cereal with soy milk or fruit.

Daisy 08-18-2003 01:56 PM

Usually hot oatmeal, often with fruit in it (especially chopped banana). Sometimes oat bran instead of oatmeal. Tried steel-cut oats recently -- very good and very filling.

DirtDiva 08-18-2003 01:59 PM

How do you people get up so freakin' early that you have time to eat breakfast!?!?!?!

Geez I wish I could do it.. but for now I just grab a piece of fruit and a bottle of water on my way out. I eat my banana or nectarine or strawberry/blueberry mix or grapes once I get to work.

borealis 08-18-2003 02:03 PM


banana and/or grapenuts

leftover rice is great for breakfast

Cissy 08-18-2003 03:18 PM

I usually have packet of apple cinnamon oatmeal, plain Silk soymilk, a smoothie made of tofu, ice, water, and crystal light, and some fruit.

I don't. Are you crazy i live 5 mins from work and i'm the only person in my office for 12 hours a day. i stock the office kitchen with my puffed millet, soymilk and COFFEE...lots and lots and lots of COFFEE. When i had my "real" job i didn't eat breakfast (or lunch sometimes either)

shethatisnau 08-18-2003 05:52 PM

I haven't been waking up in time for anything of a breakfasty nature for about a month now...but when I do wake up before noon, I tend to go for:

- Whole grain cereal (Cheerios, Shredded Wheat, Bran Flakes, etc) w/Plain soymilk and sometimes a banana or raisins

- 2 peices whole grain toast w/sugar free jam

- Peice of fruit/ bowl of chopped fruit

- 2 Fat-free waffles w/a quarter cup of sugar free syrup

- Oatmeal with applesauce on rare occassions

As of recent I've been doing "brunches", today it was a PB&J and a cup to a cup and half of vanilla Rice Dream. Yum.

Cissy 08-18-2003 06:17 PM

BTW, dirtdiva - my "breakfast" falls at about 2 in the afternoon. Then I eat lunch around 7PM, a snack around 11PM, and dinner at 2AM.

VegAnna 08-18-2003 07:19 PM


And if there's not fruit then I have a salad, if there's not salad, then I have anything that's in the kitchen that I am willing to eat.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 04:52 PM.
