Eating A Healthy Breakfast

2 years, 1 month ago

I’ve recently been trying to eat healthier and that has been starting with oatmeal for breakfast in the mornings, but I’ve begun to notice that it isn’t filling me up and I’m getting hungry after only a few hours. I like how I feel otherwise and i intend to keep eating it, I’m just wondering if anyone has suggestions for a good breakfast that can fill me up and keep me going.
I’m hoping to get healthy and cut myself back to two meals a day, to help save money, it would fit into my schedule better, and it would be a good exercise in self control and going without.

Try having your oatmeal with fresh fruit, honey and throw some hemp or chia seeds in there too, I also like sunflower seeds in mine. Another option is an egg white omelet with peppers, onions, mushies, whatev you like, and a piece of whole grain oat nut bread with almond butter and banana! Hope this helps, a green smoothie with spinach or kale too!

@johnmantheshaman, Protein and fiber and two things that will keep you feeling full longer than other nutrients. Unfortunately meat or beans doesn’t go well with oatmeal – fruits do however. Try sliced apples, they have a lot of fiber. Other than that, blueberries, bananas, pomegranate seeds are good.

Uhh I just drink like 400 ml of chocolate and it fills me well. Like today, I just drank it around 9 AM and then went for a walk at 3 PM and I just started to get hungry around 6. Although it fills me well, I guess that’s not a HighExistence Breakfast.. :P I guess it’s just like @manimal said, hunger is about nutrition, not about how filled you are.

@johnmantheshaman,

-Greek yogurt – Like regular yogurt, but pumped full of more protein to fuel you for longer.

-Eggs – The perfect food. A great balance of protein, healthy fats, and also an excellent natural source of Vitamin D.

-Bacon – Who doesn’t love bacon? More and more nutritionists are now agreeing that the saturated fats in bacon aren’t as bad as they were made out to be. In fact, a lot of the fatty acids found in bacon have been shown to actually LOWER bad cholesterol. If fat still freaks you out, go for Canadian bacon which comes from the loin, not the belly, and is naturally way leaner.

-Whole Apples, Oranges, or Grapefruit – Loaded with fiber and phytonutrients to rev you up right.

-Peanut butter – The best condiment ever (in my opinion anyway.) Opt for the kind with two ingredients: Peanuts and salt. (Like Teddie or Smuckers Natural.)

-Quinoa – The supergrain from Peru. Loaded to the max with fiber, phytonutrients and protein, plus it only takes minutes to cook!

@johnmantheshaman, 2 boiled eggs in the morning (sounds kind of gross but great with sriracha hot sauce! Also with boiling them you get the benefit of the protein but not the fat of frying) and drink lots of water as @manimal said, water will make you feel more full.

I also strongly suggest drinking green tea. It suppresses appetite and gives you a boost in the morning.
Good luck!
