2-3 cups Coffee
1 cup oatmeal

That's my breakfast. If I didn't have a weight problem, there would be more... It used to be just coffee, but Weight Watchers encourages one to eat breakfast.

Breakfast of Champions? I am not a champion, so my answer does not count.

But in case anyone is curious, it's two cups of coffee, the 1st with cream and sugar, and the 2nd black.

I usually let a spoonful of chia seeds, a spoonful of Hemp Hearts, and some frozen berries or frozen mango thaw overnight on the kitchen counter with a little water added. In the morning I add quinoa that I keep precooked in the fridge, stevia, almond milk, walnuts, and a little kefir and warm it a little in the microwave.

Here goes, 3 tbsp fresh ground flax seed, 2 tbsp chia seed, 1/2 banana, 2.5 oz of some kind of frozen berry, quarter cup walnuts, just enough water to make the chia swell. Coffee black.

Usually a bowl of Raisin Bran or Mini-Wheats with no-fat milk along with some blueberries or raspberries.

+++ You beat me to it. In my opinion this is a very good choice for breakfast. I eat the same thing (sans spam) about 4 days a week. The other days I eat a bowl of high fiber, low carb HI LO cereal.

Most days for me it is just coffee and toast, perhaps with peanut butter if I am in the mood. Occasionally when I am inspired (more often on weekends) I might cook up bacon, eggs and toast or a ham, onion & cheese omelet and toast. If the kids are home we sometimes have pancakes.

Omelet - it varies: sometime with bacon or sausage crumbles mixed in, sometimes with onions and peppers, sometimes with cream cheese (this morning!), sometimes just plain. Always cooked in butter and/or bacon grease. Oh yes, a dash of cream as I'm beating the eggs.

On weekends I'll often make fried eggs with bacon or sausage.

Usually one, sometimes two, cups of black coffee.

And I always make breakfast, my DW makes dinner, we forage for lunch ourselves.

2 eggs scrambled, 2 pieces of bacon and coffee with cream and sugar. It's all american, what can I say.

Trying to switch to oatmeal or plain cheerios w/berries to help with my metabolical health. We'll see how that goes.

My breakfasts include a vegetable and eggs.

The veggie can be spinach, kale, leeks, etc. Coated with olive oil.
The eggs are typically scrambled. I used to do over easy, but the plate was harder to wash

This mornging I had bloomed a bit of fresh ginger root in a 1/2+ tbs olive oil, dumped that onto a bowl of frozen spinach, added diced red bell pepper and a bit of salt and microwaved it for 3.5 minutes. Meanwhile, I scrambled 2 eggs in another 1/2+ tbs olive oil.

Beverage: water.

The real interesting results would be to merge this thread with the "How long do you expect to live" thread!

As for me: About 3/4 of the time it's
1 egg (microwaved to be well-done)
1 small sausage patty or 2 slices of uncured, thinly sliced ham
1 slice of bread
1 slice of cheese
usually a frozen hash brown patty

The other 1/4 of the time it's usually cold cereal with Almond milk - a blend of 2 of the following Aldi store brand equivalents of:
Cheerios
Frosted Miniwheats
Graham crackers
Bran flakes

On the weekends, I always have the breakfast sandwich, paired with a half pot of black coffee.

I alternate between a bowl of oatmeal (with pancake syrup, it's like melted brown sugar) and a bowl of Kellogg's Product 19. Back in the 1990s, my stomach did not like the speedier cold cereal every morning so I had to break up the repetition. (I tried heating up frozen waffles in the toaster but they all tasted like cardboard with pancake syrup LOL!) The only time I eat something more complex is during Thanksgiving weekend when I am at my brother's place. My SIL makes pancakes one morning and French Toast another morning. And if we happen to eat breakfast on the road (as we will likely do on this year's return trip), then I will splurge for a waffle.

The really fascinating thing (to me, anyway) is that although the meals are so extremely diverse, we each probably think we're doing the right thing in terms of our overall health. Food we enjoy primarily, but there certainly must be at least a thought of "this breakfast won't do me any harm, and may be good for me."

And yet for any individual posting here (with the possible exception of REWahoo's eclectic choices) there will be those who cast a very dubious eye on it.

So much in common, yet so different from each other!

I'm sure they'll come out with a study that says oatmeal is bad for me.
