Breakfast Ideas

For the last few days i've been skipping breakfast by sleeping in because i've run out of healthy breakfast ideas for myself. Previously, i used to have oats/ porridge for breakfast but i've noticed recently that i do get some sort of acidic feeling in my tummy whenever i have it. The only way to describe it is that it reminds me of the same feeling i get the day after i've experienced heartburn; and i can tell you that it is not a good feeling, i always end up worrying that i might get sick. My other healthy breakfast idea i know of is making custard using the custard powders they sell at the local grocery. But the problem with that is, it never keeps me full. An hour or less after eating it, i tend to start feeling hungry all over again. As for bread as some sort of breakfast, i have to admit that i've had some sort of unexplained addiction to bread since i was a kid. If it's not in the house, it doesn't bother me at all as i never crave it. But if it's there, you can bet that i'll find a way to have it for breakfast and another meal during the day. The minute i get a bite in my mouth, i'm never really satisfied with it so i'm always wanting more. The only good thing about it is that when i have it with eggs for breakfast, i'm pretty full for the next 3 hours. What are other healthy breakfast options i can indulge in that'll keep me full and are tasty? Please do not recommend smoothies because i'm not patient enough to make mine at the moment, neither am i willing to pay for one every single day. On another note, i'm lactose intolerant so something that doesn't already have a high milk content is preferable [but if i can substitute the milk for something else, then that's fine]. Thanks in advance :)

  1. Hello Hermine,
    try one of my healthy cereals

    I had the same problem as you, and started eating this kind of cereal, and started feeling fulfilled. I use almond milk, rice milk, or yogurt instead of milk; I use mostly complex carbs ( whole foods) and healthy fats coming from nuts and seeds, and this seems to do the trick for me.


  2. Thanks Olga. I'll give one of them a try and let you know how i go :)
