Bulgar or quinoa soaked overnight in almond/coconut milk along with chia, pumpkin, hemp seeds. Spoonful of hemp protein with apple/frozen berry/seasonal fruit (right now pomegranates are nice because they lose their bitterness and POP when stewed). Spoonful of seed butter and spoonful of greek yogurt on top. I am on a protein mission and so far totally satisfied and filled. No snacking, minimal woe.

Low fat or fat free cottage cheese mixed with chopped fresh fruit or/and berries which I had previously cooked in water and some added honey, along with a toasted whole wheat english muffin topped with sugar free jam or peanut butter.

Depends on whatever I feel like: 1 toasted wholewheat or multigrain slice with little of butter and one egg -soft-boiled or fried, cup a tea. Or: sautéed green onion, spinach, garlic, cilantro, crumbled feta, some red flakes for a little kick and egg pouched in it's juices. Or: sautéed fresh tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, cilantro and egg over it. Toasted slice of multigrain is awesome to dunk in it. Cup a tea with couple of crushed cardamon pods in it. Some days just a slice of toast, little butter and slice of cheese or feta and same cup of tea. My rule is no more than 1 of anything - egg, toast, veg. fruit ant etc. Open sandwich only, no need for second slice of toast on the top... 1 cup of liquid - soup, 1 cup of grains. I use agave syrup to sweetened my tea...

Experimented yesterday. Needed to come off simple carbs after Thanksgiving week so sauteed an apple (crisp and fresh to start) and topped with toasted sliced almonds along with a few chopped dates.

The Malaysian way: roti canai (Malaysian flat bread) dipped in dhal (lentil) curry. If you are really hungry, you can fry the dough in an egg. Add extra chilis if you really want some kick in your morning!

A bowl of greek yogurt stuffed with fresh fruit and maybe a few slivered almonds. A little crunch makes it that much more satisfying and filling!

Tofu Scramble with a slice of whole grain toast and a glass of V-8.

I like to toast a piece of homemade 15 grain bread, smear a little peanut butter on it, sprinkle with a bit of black salt and a spoon of nutritional yeast and top with a mild green chili. Tastes so good.

My favorite breakfast is Scrambled Tofu. There are lots of recipes for it, but I like to put some cooked bulgur (or whatever leftover whole grain you have) in a hot pan with a bit of olive oil, crumble up a block of firm tofu, toss it about a while with chopped onion and garlic (the more the merrier and let them sit a minute after chopping to activate the cancer fighting ingredient, allicin). Then the fun part -- open up the spice cupboard and go wild! I use cumin and turmeric (both strong anti-inflammatorys), a salt-free mixed herb blend, a dash of cayenne, pepper then finish with some nutritional yeast flakes and a splash of Braggs Soy Seasoning! Changing the spices and herbs a bit every time adds to the adventure and it is always delicious! And you definitely won't be hungry again until lunchtime!

Black Forest Oatmeal! Plain oatmeal, dried tart cherries, extra dark chocolate. Then I throw in some walnuts and a little coconut just for fun.

My favorite breakfast right now is a wrap! A sprouted grain wrap with Dijon mustard, an egg or a Gardein breakfast patty, a little sliced avocado, some romaine and chopped tomato. It's great - has plenty of protein, and I love the spicy start to my day! Try it - you'll like it!!

The Glowing Green Smoothie by Beauty Detox is an essential part of my mornings. It has lots of yummy fruits and veggies in it, like spinach, romaine lettuce, celery, apples, pears, and bananas. It's a great way to give you a boost in the morning!
