I too use those except mine come from garden and by this time of year even the ones I froze are gone so I'm doing bananas. I will sub dried cherries every now and then

I don't eat a lot in the morning, so a little bit of food is fine for a while.

One egg and 1/2 a piece of multi-grain toast. Small serving of fruit.
Oatmeal with flax and almond meal, very little sweetener. The fruit thing.
Half an avocado and some citrus.

This week I'm eating some super duper, beyond nutritious brown rice pudding with blueberries. Once in a while I eat dinner leftovers. Sometimes I don't want to eat anything, so I go with that.

Pay now or pay later in possible medical bills I guess. I'll pay a little more for organic now. I don't trust Monsanto products, particularly glyphosate, on non-organic food. By law, glyphosate cannot be sprayed on organic food. Bob's Red Mill organic can be bought in bulk and its not that expensive per serving, as a previous poster mentioned. I find organic packets for $1.99 per box of 8 so the difference between that and Quaker regular oats is negligible.

oatmeal with raisins or chopped up apple pieces cooked in and tsp. of real maple syrup on top plus quarter cup of milk. half of a navel orange and cup of coffee. Sometimes I vary the fruit and have a banana or some cottage cheese.

Mine is cheap, easy, quick, filling and healthy. Half a cup of old fashioned oats, a cup of water, in the micro for 90 seconds. I dump in a ton of cinnamon, a bit of agave nectar, then add either diced apples, walnuts, craisins, or a combination of those. Sometimes, just the cinnamon.

No breakfast. Intermittent Fasting for the Win!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intermittent_fasting

I typically do 16 hours of fasting and 8 hours of non-fasting, but I have recently added in 24 hour fasts and want to start exploring 36-48 hour fasts as well. Tons of research is coming out on the benefits of fasting.

Half an avocado mashed on multi-grain bread or a two-egg omelet with spinach, nutmeg, and a bit of cheese for me. Not a fan of instant oats. It's Scottish or nothing, and that takes a lot of time.

bowl of old fashioned oatmeal with 1/4 cup of blueberries and 8 walnuts mixed in (and whatever sweetener to taste).
Sustained energy + brain power + healthy.
