Eat Right, Even When There's No Time

Make-ahead breakfast egg muffins with lots of veggies can be batch cooked & frozen to just zap. Ditto breakfast burritos. I'm simply not awake enough to cook in the mornings & have come to rely on greek yogurt smoothies or something high protein from the freezer. Good ideas. Thanks!

Since they have now determined that whole eggs are not bad for you the way they used to say, and even in the Sparkpeople trivia it says they are good, why does Sparkpeople always have to eat only the whites? What is wrong with including the yolks in recipes?

I think these are some great options for people! Before we blast the articles food choices we should remember that many people on here are trying to change some pretty poor eating habits. These are great ways for them to find healthy alternatives. And there are meals on here that I actually eat on a regular basis! I love making my own healthy egg mcmuffins at home!

on the egg in a basket...we call it an hole in the bucket... don't fry your bread in oil, Cut hole using a glass, butter both sides of the bread and both sides of the hole you cut out. toast both sides of bread and hole in a skillet, after toasted remove, break an egg in the skillet, (you can use pam spray so it doesn't stick), drop the toast onto the egg making sure the yolk is in the center of the hole... use the round cut out hole to dunk into the yolk.. save calories by using lighter ingredients.

Interesting article however in my opinion many of these ideas have far too many unhealthy food items in them.Whole grains are not all they are cracked up to be with regards to good health and anything wheat based is definitely not good for you.Any how each to their own.
I am a Type II diabetic and would certainly not entertain eating many of these suggested breakfasts as many would provide a rapid sugar spike in the blood stream.
For my breakfast i eat either boiled red or black rice as low glycemic index compared to white rice,then i mix together with chopped onion,capsicum,red kidney beans or black beans(cooked),diced lean bacon,ginger(fresh chopped)minced garlic,fresh hot peppers,sesame oil and himalayan pink salt and ground black pepper and fry long enough in pan to just cook the meat and vegetable content.A bit fiddly but i usually cook enough for two or three breakfasts.As a result of changing to this type of breakfast i have lost several kilos and my diabetes readings have improved. I also find i tend to eat a lighter lunch as i remain fuller for longer and also eat less for dinner.
The idea of this type of breakfast originated on my annual holidays to Bali, as the first time i went, i came home feeling a lot better and somewhat lighter than when i arrived there,purely from eating Asian type foods in lieu of Western type foods

Seems like an awful lot of carbs (and starchy carbs at that) with little protein. Definitely lacks staying power.

I lost weight on the McDougall Program, but I couldn't do it anymore. It's so expensive buying food for the household and food for myself too. This diet was no oil, no eggs, no meat. anything to do with coming from an animal. But it's hard to eat my bowl of vegies and potatoes while everyone else is eating a steak on the grill. As far as exercising goes? I work from 2pm to 10:30pm, I have to unwind a little after work and by the time I go to bed it's 3 am, so the next morning I'm too tired and sore to even move. I clean at a medical college plus a private home once a week and I do not sit down the entire day. So I guess my weight gain came from these work hours, eating late in the evening or after midnight is really what happened to me. Plus menopause.

I think I'm going to try the smoothie for breakfast and some grapes or granola on the side. It's a great start I think!

people that works nights and come home at 7 or 8 am like my husband will eat anything for breakfast like the casserole, pork chops, steak, rice,pasta, anything. Me? I can't eat none of that early in the morning

Who on Earth eats a casserole for breakfast???? Far to weird for England.

So many of these ideas have bread or bread like products (waffles). Because of swallowing issues I cannot have bread or anything like bread. I manage to eat two breakfasts every day (a small one at 5:00 a.m. to get me going and a larger one at about 8:00 a.m. when I am hungry). I wish that the article had provided more suggestions on things with no bread type items.

I like this article...but I notice a lot of these articles are very 'mumsy'...not everyone who eats healthy is necessarily a mum. I'm a 19 year old Briton and I certainly don't have kids yet! I like my Daily Spark emails though :-)

There is nothing bad about egg yolks; they are the most nutritious part!

"By throwing out the yolk and only eating egg whites, you're essentially throwing out the most nutrient dense, antioxidant-rich, vitamin and mineral loaded portion of the egg. The yolks contain so many B-vitamins, trace minerals, vitamin A, folate, choline, lutein, and other powerful nutrients... it's not even worth trying to list them all."
