I am a breakfast person. I have been known to forgo lunch and even dinner, but skipping breakfast has never been an option for me. Basically I wake up starving, feeling as if I have not eaten in days, every morning. If I don't have a decent breakfast in my belly within a half hour of waking up, I'm practically dying of the shakes.
Personally, I like protein for breakfast. I wish I could pull off a croissant and a cup of coffee, but I'm telling you, the hunger is so intense, that protein is definitely needed. I didn't really realize that protein would do the trick until I was pregnant. I started eating an egg every morning, and was astonished to see how well one, little egg could sustain me for HOURS. Over easy, scrambled, poached, usually with a piece of toast or some roasted potatoes, I have had every form of egg EVERY morning for almost two years, and I have EXHAUSTED the egg breakfast like you would not believe. It is time for change.
This morning, I tried getting away with some oatmeal and a little bit of yogurt, but was inevitably hungry again within a couple hours of eating. By 10 am, I was digging into the roasted chicken we're supposed to be having for lunch. I need ideas. Desperately. I'm feeling incredibly uninspired in the breakfast department. There really aren't a ton of options out there... especially when protein is a must. I thought of maybe some breakfast sausage and some fruit, but I can't imagine that will hold my interest every day the same way eggs had in the past. Any of you big protein breakfast eaters, too? What do you eat that doesn't involve eggs?
