  •  exactly! (7+ / 0-)

    If I have a slice of bread in the morning I am hungry the whole day.   Whole grain cereal generally is not so bad -- Grape Nuts or oatmeal (not the processed kind, but grains) is pretty good, but my best breakfast is yogurt with wheat germ stirred in.  

    •  I need to remember wheat germ (5+ / 0-)

      I struggle to get enough fiber each day, and wheat germ with my yogurt would be perfect.  Thanks!

    •  when you said cereal, at first I thought -- no (2+ / 0-)

      that doesn't work for me.  But it's exactly what you said -- I can have oatmeal but I can't have even high fiber regular cereal.  
      For me, the best breakfast is something high protein, e.g., low fat chicken sausage or low fat cheese, and fruit (along with my home-made skim latte).  
      But I also love having swiss yogurt:  mix rolled oats (not quick cooking kind) with yogurt (about 1/4 cup oats to 6 oz non-fat yogurt).  Let it sit over night.  Then I mix in lots and lots of chopped apples and banana.  I sometimes add about 1/2 T of currants that I previously put in a little hot water.  If I need more sweetness, I add some splenda as I'm eating it.  Makes a very big bowl and is very satisfying.
      I sometimes make the oatmeal & yogurt mixture in bigger batches ahead of time -- then I use one container of french vanilla non-fat, 2 containers plain non-fat and 3/4 cup oatmeal.  May also have to add some milk depending on consistency of the yogurt.

      If, in our efforts to win, we become as dishonest as our opponents on the right, we don't deserve to triumph.
