    Ok so I go to work eairly in the am and at least 2 times a week stop for breakfast. I hate doing that but I am hypoglycemic and need to eat when I need to eat. Do any of you have good fast breakfast recipies I can try on the fly? Maybe even some ideas I can make on Sunday for the week ?

    Thanks
    Pete

    I spent MANY years assuming grits were horrible. After you try this, you will realize how wrong I was.

    1)In a double boiler put 2 parts milk, 2 parts water, a pinch of salt and 5 pinchs sugar. Cover
    2)When butter melts, slowly stir in 1 part white hominy grits. Turn burner to low, cover, set timer for 8 minutes(probably could pull off a shower while waiting)
    3)Spoon into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with chopped walnut. Add a tablespoon of butter, and pour Northern Comfort over the top.

    This sheetz 'da bomb!

    Of couse the obvious thing is fresh fruit. My motto is whatever's in season (cheapest!) Grind with a cup of ice in the blender along with some light cranberry juice and some Greek-style low/no fat yogurt. The only downside is, if your teeth are sensitive to the cold, this will hurt like a bi+cho_O

    But having said all that, every man should have the luxury of stopping for breakfast out at least once or twice a week. The waitress need not be immensly attractive. She does need to get your order right, be friendly. NOT be loud. And of course the food needs to have the right amount of grease and salt to satisfy.

    I have been experimenting w/breakfast burritos. I scramble eggs w/different ingredients and put them in a warm tortilla shell. I like them and they are fairly quick.

    I mostly have oatmeal. I get the quick oats, 1/2 cup oats and 1 cup H20, 60 seconds in the micro and just a little brown sugar to sweeten it up. I add a cut up banana.

    I eat a peanutbutter crunchy Nature Valley bar every weekday for b'fast, followed by a piece of fruit to tide me over before lunch. Weekends it's cereal one day and out with the Mrs. for a waffle with fruit and whipped cream the other day.

    I'm not predictable, I'm "reliable".

    Anyways, I always have either a home made soup or a canned low sodium soup with a toasted english muffin with a lil butter for breakfast....I love the Wolfgang Puck Potato soup but I only have it if my blood pressure is under control...;lol:mad:.

    Work days, it's yogurt, fruit, and maybe a granola bar or two. There is no way I could do this job with a full belly, so I snack all day until I'm done. A quick breakfast for me at home is usually my own egg mcmuffin, if I have something to do and don't have time to sit down with the kiddos. Sometimes it's just the english muffin with lots of butter.

    Seriously though a good snack for people with your problem is graham crackers with peanut butter....it will give you a lil protein and fill you up...we have it in the office for patients after their stress tests.

    I can get up at 4:30 in the morning and work until 7:00 at night and not eat all day. When I get home I will eat for a couple of hours straight and be up at 1:00am raiding the fridge for leftovers or in the cupboard for cookies or crackers or anything that doesn't move!:)

    Oatmeal can be topped a million different ways. Any kind of fruit, yogurt,jelly/jam , maple syrup, peanut butter, chocolate chips, whip cream, brown sugar, milk, marshmallows, etc, etc. The combinations are endless and quick.

    Take about 3 tablespoons of peanut butter and put it in a bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds to get it melty. Slice a banana up and stir it into the PB. Glass of skim milk for a chaser. Never gets old.

    Not the healthiest breakfast in the world but damn its good.
    Chilaquiles. Its a mexican dish, simple to make. Tear up some corn tortillas and fry crispy in a little oil.
    Stir in your scrambled eggs, cheese, onion and ham or bacon. Is best smothered with spicy green chili. You can use tobasco or a green salsa.

    Bagels from anyplace outside the City or the Downstate Counties of NY . . . are not even Bagels;sick;sick

    If ya want something different in Oats . . . steel cut

    Same as grits recipe, but about 6 times the cook time. And don't add the salt, as this slows the absorption of water into the groats.

    EVERYONE -not just diabetics- should eat a good b'fast and a decent snack mid morning. Lunch should be the third meal of the day. The next two meals should each get smaller.

    The funniest thing in the world is to hear overweight people explain how they don't eat breakfast. Duh!!!::P

    But seriously, I have something to look forward to now when I retire. BEER;lol

    Every Labor Day me and a couple buddies go to the NHRA US Nationals. We leave the house about 6, get just outside Indy and grab some breakfast, and are drinking beer in the parking lot by 8:00AM. The best part is, it is considered perfectly normal, if not expected. If we were drinking beer in a restaurant that early we'd get dirty looks, but passers by hold up their beer and salute us. That's the only day of the year I'm drinking that early, but I'm a firm believer you do NOT need to wait until noon either.

    When on hard core fishing trips, it is not uncommon to hear the first pop top "fizz" while the boat is pulling away from the doc...around 6:00 a.m.

    A quick and extremely easy breakfast that is also delicious is to make up some waffles ahead of time. In the morning, put one half in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Then put the waffle in the toaster just long enough to crisp it up. Top this with butter and pure maple syrup! Yummy for the tummy!
