I really struggle to make myself have breakfast most of the time to be honest. It's never been a habit but I know that because I have an underactive thyroid, my metabolism isn't great anyway so I want to give it the best shot I can! So I know breakfast is important so I'm trying to make sure I have breakfast. But I'm getting bored of my breakfasts! The things I've been having are:

Special K red berries with extra strawberries
Boiled/poached/scrambled egg and a slice of toast
Fruit salad

And that's it, I'm stuck for more ideas! Anyone got some good breakfast ideas for anywhere between 200 and 300 calories?

I have yoghurt with blueberries or strawberries quite a lot for breakfast.

If I'm in a hurry, I'll grab some brazil nuts and eat them on the way to work.

I'm terrible with breakfast tbh. The only other thing I ever have (which is only at weekends when I have time) is a poached egg.

I usually have crumpets - they are around 85-90 calories each and I tend to have spread/low fat cheese spread on them :)

If I am in a rush I have 2 Alpen light summer fruit bars 140 cals (70 each) If I have more time I have a Oats so simple sachet (about 200 with milk). On a weekend I have crumpets with low cal jam 2 works out at 200 cals.

Oatmeal - a big bowl is only 140 calories and because it's a complex carb is takes a long time to digest, meaning you stay fuller for much longer. Plus it's yummm.

I have a few ideas for you:

1) Breakfast Wrap: Make an Omelette (1 egg, 2x serving liquid egg whites) and add some veggies (I normally go with red pepper and spinach). Don't fold it in half though! Once cooked through, place it on a wholegrain wrap and fold, eat with have a grapefruit or orange juice. Breakfast within 10minutes all for about 300calories (depending on type of wraps used) and about 12g protein - build muscles and keep fuller for longer!

2) All bran + grapefruit and glass of milk

3) Overnight Oats: This is something going around the blogosphere at the moment. Place 1 cup of oats in any container you want and add roughly the same amount of liqiuid - any liquid you want: water, milk, 0% fat greek yoghurt its up to you! Place in the fridge and leave overnight. In the morning add your favourite toppings. I normally make mine with water, add half a cup of canned pumpkin, some cinnamon and nutmeg and some grated carrot - yumz in my tumz =)

4) Green Monster: Any amount of fruit you want, milk/orange juice/coconut milk and one cup of spinach/watercress/lettuce etc. Believe me, sounds weird, but you actually can't taste the leaves. If you want extra staying power, add a scoop of protein powder (though be careful dependent on what brand you use, not every one blends very well and doesn't have an aftertaste. I use Maxitone Definity, but then again I've never used it in a smoothie).

What I found when I first started calorie counting, was that eating anything other than cereal or egg on toast or fruit felt weird. I think sometimes you just have to step out of tradition and your comfort zone =)

I ended up eating an apple and running out the door *sigh*

You guys have given me some great ideas though, will definitely be using these! Thanks!

I love muesli! 200 cals a bowl with milk. Fills you up really well too
