    For breakfast, I have a glass of warm lemon water with pure stevia extract, a green smoothie (a few different fruits and a scoop of vibrant health green vibrance powder) and a large grapefuit.

    The lemon water jumpstarts your metabolism and cleans your liver, the smoothie is just goodness in a glass with the green vibrance for ALL KINDS of vitamins and nutrients and cleansing elements, and the grapefruit is just yummy!

    Actually, the grapefruit also has all kinds of vitamin c, antioxidants, lycopene and helps lower your cholesterol.

    I used to do an orange sprinkled generously with ground cinnamon instead of the grapefruit; that's high in vitamin c and fiber and the cinnamon helps control blood sugar. I just switched to grapefruit because my blood sugar is fine and I really like grapefruit. ^^

    My breakfast takes me about 2 hours to eat because I eat it slow but honestly, spreading it out keeps me from being hungry before lunch. Plus, it's just better for your body to eat more often rather than stuff yourself, then starve.

    Plus, when I have a superduper healthy and nourishing breakfast, I don't feel as bad about cheating at dinner, LOL!

    I always have an egg white omelet. The egg whites keep me from being hungry before lunchtime. I usually add some peppers and onions, occasionally mushrooms. I also have a fruit smoothie - 1 banana, 4-5 strawberries depending upon size, some ice (although I do use frozen berries when strawberries aren't in season), and some water - no sugar, no dairy. The banana adds all the cream you need. I'll also sprinkle in a little ground flax seed.

    I eat breakfast every day. I have no idea how people don't eat breakfast! I would die.

    Decaf coffee and very sugary cereal, like Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Frosted Flakes. On the weekends, I have pancakes or crepes or French toast cuz that's what DH makes us. I refuse to eat a yucky-tasting healthy breakfast just because I "should" and unfortunately I don't like much yummy-tasting healthy stuff that's quick and easy to make (not much time in the morning, what with the 2 kids needing their brekkies--one of which I provide, literally, rotfl).

    Yup, I eat breakfast. I am completely inconsistent with what I eat though. I always mix it up. No matter what, I always have to start the day with a cup of coffee. I like to have fruit. Oatmeal. Cereal (Frosted Mini Wheats or Cheerios). Breakfast of Champions (donuts and the likes ;)). Eggs with onion, peppers, sausage. Pancakes. French Toast. Waffles. Seriously - I am always changing what I eat...

    Does a cup of coffee count? I'm not into breakfast foods, I hate eggs, and Gluten Free stuff is expensive. So I don't eat breakfast. I know. I know.

    Tricia, I'm sure you already know this, but Chex cereals are gluten free! They even have gluten-free recipes on their website. Some involve CHOCOLATE! lol

    I don't eat breakfast everyday. Weekend days I do, but it's usually a bowl of cereal. During week after I get to work I occasionally make instant oatmeal, but usually it's so busy when I get to work I don't always have time.

    I always make an iced coffee at home to take with me, but I really want a blender to make smoothies.

    Usually it is a yogurt with fresh blueberries and a small amount of organic gluten free granola.
    Otherwise, oatmeal.

    Christina- I like the lemon water idea. I might try that this summer when off work.

    It's really yummy, like warm lemonade. Which sounds like it might be gross, but it's not, lol. It's warm and sweet and good for you at the same time. WAY better than dehydrating, skin-aging, blood pressure-raising coffee!
