Breakfast
 
Most important meal of the day (allegedly) and one I never bother with :( but I am going to be making more of an effort in the New Year, so what do you have for breakfast?

Porridge with brown sugar followed by toast or else pancakes with syrup.

activia yoghurt with as much museli as I can stuff into the pot. A coffee and a smoke followed by another coffee. then something about 10.30-11 banana or something- kitkat if my willpower is shite and a cig and a coffee.

My yummiest breakfast is eggs benedict or bacon and egg buttie- but hardly ever have those as I would be the size of a house! mmm drooool

I normally do toast and marmite about 10 am, but am planning on cutting that out in favour of yoghurt and fruit, or cornflakes, I don't mind them too much

cereal is bad- lots of hidden sugars etc museli (the low fat stuff) is much better for you- or porridge if you can eat the stuff (It makes me gag!) and go for berries- best fruit for you xxx

I love berries but raspberries are so expensive! bought some frozen ones.

Have you had the eggs benedict at More Cafe? very nice :thumbup:

Yep I go for frozen mixed berries- whack it all in the blender with an apple, banana load of grapes, fresh strawberries, a few nuts, skimmed milk and a strawberry activia yoghurt- delicious! can cram my 5 a day into one drink!

a very rough estimate ( not know portion sizes) that breakfast gives you almost 100gms of carbs and over 600 calories..

:eek: thought there were few carbs in fruit, banana yes but not the other fruits

Re: Breakfast
 
actually pats- can you tell me why the carbs are so high- trying to find a carb convertor online and cant find anything- everything is a palm size portion- almonds. Just saw online that the daily intake of carbs should be 180-230 grms a day if your not trying to loose weight. Suddenly thinking my diet is shite!

I am going to reduce my carbs, it has worked for me in the past, Patsy gave me some great tips a few years back which should still be on here.
