Green days - breakfast inspiration required, please

(9 Posts)

I did sw v successfully 10 years ago - 3 stone in 3 months.

I have put two stone back on (2 babies jn rapid succession! One of whom did not sleep until recently, so a lot of reaching for biscuits to Gwen through the day and no exercise as just too shattered), but this is the year I'm going to get back to Me.

I can no longer abide muller lights, or anything artificially sweetened, it just tastes wrong, so that's the easy brekkie of a yogurt out the window.

I only get on with the green days, and for some reason, not eating bread.

I know - I'm a total pain in the arse. But other than fruit, is there something filling and tasty I can have?

When I'm fed up of yoghurt, I do eggs? Scrambled, poached or boiled?

Porridge? I make mine with alpro soya light milk instead. Sometimes a little honey?

Its breakfast I struggle with. Porridge uses my a and b, so I might move to green for the extra b?

I second the eggs option. I make an omelette and load it with spinach, tomatoes and peppers as well as seasoning.

I know you're staying off the bread but I sometimes put my omelette in between a whole meal warbutons thins. It's scrummy.

Yes to omelettes/eggs with baked beans if you want something filling. The Linda McCartney red onion sausages are free, are they something you might eat? If so, you could do a cooked breakfast with mushrooms, tomatoes, eggs and beans.

There are also 'magic pancakes' and they do have mullerlight in them, but I don't see why you couldn't swap that for natural yoghurt if you wanted to try them?

Thanks everyone! Eggs seem to be the way forward - I do love an omelette. smile

Tinned new potatoes sliced into scallops and fried with fry light and fried onions! Lovely with fried eggs/beans/mushrooms/toms etc

Sin free pancakes -175g yogurt (mullerlight is perfect) 35 g of porridge oats, mix and leave over night in fridge , you can eat this hot or cold as it is
- mix in 3 eggs and cook in a fry pan on a medium heat ,a tablespoon is about the right amount of mix for one pancake, i can get 3 in a pan at once , turn them over keep warm in the oven as you do the next batch - serve with whatever you fancy mixed berry's is great - i like with bacon !

Porridge with banana. Fills me up, quick, easy & tastes great.

Not the microwave sachets though. I get the oats in a tube that microwave in 2 minutes & mix in a banana afterwards.
