My staple, is cream of wheat with a bit of cinnamon. Oatmeal on other days. But cream of wheat is easier to eat without sugar, I typically make it with water and have a banana.
Try this baked oatmeal. I made it without the nuts (we are nut free too, my son is allergic) and instead sprinkled 1 tbsp each of steel cut oats and roasted sunflower seeds on top before baking. The calorie count comes out closer to 150 a serving (serves 6). A bonus is that you have breakfast for the week, just reheat a piece every morning. I top it with Fage 0% Greek yogurt, about 45 calories for 1/3 cup. That's just under 200 calories total so you could even drizzle some honey on top - like eating dessert for breakfast!
Thomas' Bagel Thins (110 cals), Parkay spray butter (0 cals), egg whites (2 large or 4 tbsp = 33 cals), 1/8 cup shredded mozzarella (40 cals)
Yummy breakfast sandwich for just under 200 calories!
Cottage cheese and fruit! Daisy's 2% cottage cheese has only 90 calories per 1/2 cup, and you can add a half a banana, berries, peaches, or whatever other fruit strikes your fancy! I like to whip mine up in the food processor - it makes a sort of mousse. It feels kind of special, but I know it's healthy! Cinnamon/nutmeg/vanilla for flavor and maybe some flaxseed meal for fiber.
Anna, given that you are having trouble increasing your calories to a healthy level, perhaps limiting your breakfast to 300 calories isn't the best plan?
Frittata! Or eggs and toast. Or egg omelet. Or egg and cheese sandwich.
So easy to make and the protein will keep you full for very long. <3 EGGS.
Oh my! I make a similar thing and was also going to recommend it.
20 g. dry plain quick cooking oatmeal
15-17 g wheat bran
12 g unsweetened applesauce
120 g egg beaters/egg whites
40 g unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or until it looks sufficiently soggy/lilquidy)
1 g sugar free cheese cake pudding mix
Recipe has roughly 195 calories in it and received an A in nutrition.
And microwave that in a bowl. Lately, I've gotten into taking it out and breaking out the cooked parts and putting them on a plate as the thing cooks. But you can micro or bake until it reaches it's muffin-like form. I like to put cinnamon, a little splenda and sugar on the raw & salt on top of it (as well sa 6 g of pb, but that is off limits here). Other good alternatives are some kind of butter, preserves or jam. Pumpkin butter is holy delicious and is 35 cals per 1 tbsp/15 g. sugar free strawberry is 10 cals/20g. I eat some fresh fruit along side that. Or top it off with some fresh fruit.
Any low cal or sugar free maple syrup does not agree with me, although I too used to love to top mine off with it.
Kix (110 per serving) + almond milk (1/2 c is about 20 cals) + sara lee whole wheat honey bread (45 cals per slice) + 1 tps of SF jelly (5 cals) + 1/2 c. of frozen unsweetened peach slices (about 20 cals) = 200 calorie breakfast
2 slices of sara lee toast (90 cals) + 2 egg whites scrambled (about 20 cals) + 1 slice of FF cheese (30cals) + 1 tbs of salsa (10 cals) + peach (50 cals) = 200 calorie breakfast
The featured recipe this week at www.talkaboutfood.org is for blueberry bran muffins and they only have 120 calories! I've made them and they are good!
Hope this helps!
I usually eat a piece of fruit for breakfast or yopliat light which is 100 calories. Sometimes I will make a smoothie with 1 cup of frozen berries and 1 cup of LIGHT V8 fusion juice. It's delicious and less than 150 calories.
my favorite breakfast is simple, but different if you want to mix it up, 3 egg whites, 1/2 cup cooked brown rice, and 1/2 cup low sodium black beans. first I fry the eggs, top with rice and beans, then add salsa or hot sauce (my favorite is chalula) This meal is only 207 calories with 19 grams of protein so it keeps me full for hours! give it a try! (I usually make a large batch of rice that I store in the fridge so it's super easy to just reheat when needed)
I eat this daily!
Fruit! Fruit is one of the best possible things to eat; your stomach is empty first thing in the morning, so the fruit can be easily digested and will not sit and ferment in your stomach. Fruit is all-natural obviously, and is mostly water, so it also helps hydrate you. I'll eat a serving of Honey Nut Cheerios after waiting half an hour for my body to absorb the fruit; it sticks with me until lunch and tastes yummy!
OP is underweight, eats 1200 calories a day at most and has an unhealthy relationship with food. Please, don't encourage her.
My go-to breakfast that is less than 300 cals is to mix 30 grams of quick oats with 10 grams of sunflower seeds and 10 grams of pumpkin seeds. I eat it as cereal with half a cup of flavored kefir. Yummy and low-cal!
