Hi, NoS-er,
This is a fun question/poll.
I answered the poll as "something else" because that is what I do most often. I often have just whatever sounds good out of the fridge, leftovers or something spread on toast or a handfull of peanuts/other nuts. Sometimes I have oatmeal, but that is seldom. Sometimes I have a fruit smoothie, with or without protein powder. Once in a blue moon, pancakes. I tend to skip breakfast a few times per week, but eat something more often than not.

I voted for eggs+toast because that is the basis of my favorite breakfast but instead of adding bacon or potatoes to it, I almost always include veggies in some way. Egs.: sauteed mushrooms, reheated leftovers veggies from dinner (I try to have l/o veggies just for this purpose), frozen spinach thawed (yay for the microwave!) and mixed with a bit of seasonings and cream or sour cream, or perhaps a sliced tomato dressed with salt/evoo.

Note: I'm not actually a fan of frittatas/quiche where all the goodies are mixed in with the eggs (I think it muddies the flavors), so these veggies are on the side or underneath a fried/poached/scrambled egg.

Mmmm. Good thing it is time for breakfast!

The foundation is usually a mocha. The things I chew can vary a lot, but it's rarely the volume of even my two fists. This has evolved over a period of years. It used to be mostly hot or cold non-sweetened cereal, fruit, and nuts OR eggs and veggies, maybe toast.

My son loves porridge, so we all just have that for simplicity. I usually add something to mine, e.g. fruit and some nuts or seeds, peanut butter, some sour cream or thick yoghurt.

Good topic! I especially like that it's framed as breaking the fast-- I sure look forward to breakfast since I don't do evening snacks as a rule.

I basically have a smoothie and toast, sort of an intelligent default.

The smoothie is based on yogurt/banana/some kind of green/some other fruit on hand (frozen cranberries, something seasonal or that needs to be used up)/water or coconut water. The smoothie is not very sweet on its own, but I usually add an Emergen-C packet which makes it just a bit sweeter and zingier.

The toast is a traditional homemade Euro style half white/half whole wheat (vs. softer, sweeter American style breads), our "house" bread. http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/

It is SO good toasted, buttered with coconut oil and topped with a sprinkle of salt.

My No-S portions are smoothie in a 16 oz mason jar that fits on my Oster blender ring and toaster load full of bread-- they're handmade loaves so 3-5 pieces based on how big the loaf/where cut on the loaf. They always fit on the same size little plate. Smile

What a great idea! Thanks!

Even though we don't do smoothies often, when I do make them, I like to make them as tasty and as healthy as possible (while still seeming treat-like!).

I have posted this before, and will stick without, but I find breakfast is the most important part of the No S Diet. This morning was a breakfast sandwich I made, salami, egg, pastrami, cheese, mayo and schriracha sauce. (I have been eating that long before it became popular. But I still cannot spell or pronounce it.)

Often it is sausage/bacon, eggs, hash browns.

Contrary to low carb dogma, if I do not have some bread/carb (has browns) in the morning I crave them more in the afternoon. It must be a me thing.

Another breakfast I eat is topping rice (yes, white rice) with a couple of eggs and some brown gravy. Sometimes I add a burger patty as well.

The Idaho Omelet is also tasty. Cubed ham, cooked with hash browns, when it is done mix cheddar cheese in with it. You can top that with a fried egg if you would like.

This has me thinking, I might have the Idaho Omelet tomorrow. Thanks.

Disclaimer: I'm only 2 weeks into this but here's what I have so far:

If I have a morning workout, my breakfast meal is split into two-parts: pre and post workout. If I have an endurance session in the morning, I usually have something high-carb - like a banana with oatmeal OR jam on toast. A strength session usually means some grains (like quinoa, brown rice, or oatmeal) with protein powder, eggs, or chicken. Part 2 consists of carbs and protein, usually a starchy vegetable and fish or chicken.

If I don't have a morning workout, I usually have something with lots of veggies and healthy fats, like an omelette with lots of spinach or salmon with broccoli. I usually get up between 6 and 7, and lunch is around 3 or 4 so I find the fats, fiber, and protein keep me full.

On yoga class mornings (3 mornings each week) I usually have a very light breakfast - half of a banana with some crunchy peanut butter spread over it.
Other mornings Honey Bunches of Oats, banana, and almond milk...greek yogurt with a T. of dried blueberries, a T. of chopped walnuts, and 1/4 cup of Ancient Grains granola, or peanut butter on an Eggo waffle.
Weekends - pancakes on Saturday, bacon and eggs on Sunday. I'm never a real big breakfast eater.
Mimi Very Happy
