My fave is heavy comfort foods, but I rarely eat that....

I eat healthy things in the morning

like I have some fruit, yogurt and cereal...actually usually I mix it all up kinda like a parfait or something..its really good and filling.

Or I have some toast and a little bit of omelette/scrabled/poached/sunny side/etc egg.

Pita with some hummus is good too..fiber for your day.

Mix fruit salad

Fruit smoothie and a slice of toast or crackers.

I find its good to eat in the morning to start the day, but not heavy because it weighs you down and I find the more I eat in the morning the sooner I feel tired/hungry. I stay away from the sugary cereals too just to keep my sugar intake in the morning to a minimum...I save those for weekends or afterschool.

When I'm in the mood for a not-very-breakfasty breakfast, I scramble an egg and extra egg whites and heat a flour tortilla. On top of the tortilla I put a huge pile of raw spinach, then the scrambled eggs, then salsa, then fold it all up and YUMMY.

some good choices are whole wheat toast,raisins,fruit,yogurt,a cereal bar(once and a while) and oatmeal. You might wanna try whole grain cereals too with skim milk. There are some others but those are the only ones I can think of right now. They are also fast and good.

I usually have a regular 8-oz package of light yogurt. I know that light versions aren't as good for you as regular ones, but I like that taste better. The normal ones are so sugary! I like yogurt because it's really fast (so that I don't miss the bus), but also filling.

If we're out of yogurt, I have a bowl of mixed grain cereal (often a combination of different types or brands). The best cereals come from the natural or organic section of the grocery store. I especially like the Kashi protein one mixed with unsweetened mixed grain ones.

Another great breakfast (although I don't have time for it) is toast with peanut butter and honey on top--added just after the toast exits the toaster so that they melt, of course. Mmmmm... This is a great thing to give kids (healthier than, say, pop tarts because of the peanut better, but also sweet and yummy), as is peanut better on top of a banana (or banana slices). I only say that because it's practically all my little brother will eat, though. Mostly, it's a good breakfast for...me! Can you tell that I love this or what?

Someone mentioned bagels, but those are supposed to be really bad for you. Try eating a couple of pieces of whole wheat toast instead with maybe a glass of milk. English muffins are also wonderful, although you would probably want the whole wheat ones if you're trying to be healthy. I sometimes have an English muffin with melted cheese on it. Mmmmm...

Always try to have some sort of protein with your breakfast. You need carbs, so don't go all Atkins-y, but have a glass of milk if all you have is a plate full of carbs. It makes a huge difference to me because otherwise I feel sick (if I have something sugary) or just hungry again really fast.

Oddly enough, I used to hate breakfast foods. I even ate soup for breakfast when I was younger. I love them now, so go figure.

I've heard many, many times that a protein+carbs combo is the best breakfast fare. Examples: whole grain toast with peanut butter, apple with peanut butter, whole grain toast with eggs.

this is FOUL (pronounced "fool"):

note: the original foul is without the yoghurt part

INGREDIENTS

3 cups of fava beans (canned)
6 large tomatoes
1 finely chopped onion
2-3 cloves crushed garlic
1 T of chopped coriander (cilantro)
2-3 T olive oil
1 cup of plain soy yogurt
Salt and black pepper
Cayenne pepper to taste


METHOD

Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan and add the onion, garlic, coriander, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Brown the ingredients until the onions are pink. Add the chopped tomatoes, mix and continuing browning until the tomatoes are soft. Add the beans and mix well. Add 1/2 - 1 full cup of boiling water.

Bring to a boil and cover with a lid. Simmer for 30 minutes. Add the crushed garlic and a dash of salt to the yogurt. I also like to add some fresh chopped mint and a small amount of olive oil. Mix well. After put the beans on your serving platter and pour the yogurt all over the beans


with arabic bread *yum, yum*
