I've been having plain oats for breakfast every morning for well over two years now, and upon ANOTHER bowl today I just felt a bit bored with it. Only thing is, I get up at 6 and need it to fill me up til lunch time, so I figured the slow release carbs was the only option. Does anybody know of any other breakfasts that really fill you up but isn't watery porridge? :\

I used to have a piece of toast (either white or wholemeal) with cherry tomatoes on (either cold or grilled), which fills you up loads.

Or a poached egg on toast?
Weetabix with some yoghurt or fruit?

yeah, I did think Weetabix..but wondered if I'd soon get bored with that too. Maybe I'll consider a porridge/weetabix schedule where I swap between the two every now and then. :cool:

You don't have to make porridge with water...I prefer it with milk.

Also, try adding apple, cinnamon and raisins to it. Porridge the way it was meant to be.

Weetabix do get boring I know, then you could maybe try Jordan's country crisp? It's pretty expensive for what you get though... :grr:

I'm a muesli addict - Lidl sells a really nice Swiss-style muesli (a bit like Alpen, but cheaper) and it's really filling and tasty.

Eggs, mushrooms and toast will fill you up nicely. Lots of protein is the key!

Hm im not a fan off breakfast, I last from 7am-5pm with no food throughout weekdays.
I think if you eat in the morning it makes you hungrier throughout the day.. or maybe thats just me?
anyway.. id go for two toasts with butter if i had to eat anything.

There was a thread about what to put in porridge a while ago, if you want to make it more interesting.

Or if you fancy being colonial, you could try kedgeree.

- weetabix with blueberries / strawberries/ banana - change thefruit each day
- bran flakes
- supermarkets own make of shreddies - malted wheats (think they taste nicer than shreddies)

I personally love a big fruit salad (if you have the cash to burn, the single best option is Marks and Spencer 2 for £5 premium fruit salad, a full one, in a bowl) with a Marks and Sparks Count on Us Rhubarb/Vanilla/Strawberry yoghurt over the top. Fills me for LOADS of hours and it's 185 kcal in total.

Add in a chocolate weetabix or a portion of all bran and 300 calories gives you a monster brekkers.

This. Massively. I watched a programme about the problem of feeling hungry all too soon after breakfast. I think they experimented 3 different meals- porridge, fry up and scrambled eggs, toast, beans and bits of ham. Guess which meal made them feel full for longer? That's right, the scrambled eggs, toast, beans and ham. The expert person said that the protein in the beans, eggs and ham filled them up and the toast gave the much needed nutrition.

Protein, protein, protein. :borat:.

and ludicrously high in fat.

And go for Asdas own brand one, lower in fat and almost identical in taste (if anything i prefer it)

Heheh, one of my buddies was shocked to hear his favourite Crunchy Nut cereals have more fat, sugar and calories than eating ice cream cookie sandwiches for breakfast. "But it's breakfast cereal!" He exclaimed.

No, if you crunch up hobnobs, dairy milk, millionaire shortbread and cream cakes into a bowl, then shove some flakes in there with it, it doesn't automatically become "a breakfast cereal." And it CERTAINLY doesn't morph it into a healthy dish!!
