    I eat 0 fat low sugar greek yogurt, with oats or some kind of oaty crunch with banana and blueberries. If I'm really desperate for sweetness, I drizzle a teaspoon or so of honey or mix in a half teaspoon of Manuka honey, depending on what I have in the cupboard. Then I have a tropical smoothie (mango, papaya, pineapple, apple juice and sometimes coconut milk) to drink on the train on the way into school. Hope this helps!!

    My 2 go to breakfasts (depending on if I'm feeling sweet or savoury) are-

    1. Porridge (just to make a change from what everyone else has put!) with semi skimmed milk, frozen berries, 1 tsp honey and a handful chopped walnuts

    2. Omelette consisting of 2 medium eggs, 1 chopped tomato, 1/2 bell pepper and a sprinkling of cheese which 1/2 can of no added sugar baked beans

    If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, eat a fat and protein heavy breakfast, and get up at roughly the same time every day. The neurological systems that mediate negative emotionality are married to your circadian rhythm.

    I boil eggs at the start of the week (they'll keep good for a week in shell, in fridge) and have 2 eggs and 2 bacon (microwave since you want it quick).

    simple carbs and sugars are digested too quickly and result in a blood sugar spike then a subsequent dip.

    My fave breakfast: oatmeal (1/4 semi skimmed lactose-free milk, 3/4 water) with either chia/flax seeds/fenugreek & peanuts + peanut butter (homemade, so 100% unsalted roasted peanuts) + half banana + oreo, sometimes shredded coconut. I could eat it 10 times a day. If I don't want anything sweet for breakfast (lol sure) I eat scrambled eggs with onion&tomatoes with bread + black/mint tea (no sugar) and lemon infused water.

    I don't eat breakfast, but as summer is returning, and the days are getting warmer etc, I might start and become more active and healthier for once. It just depends.

    Np! I used to have such problems in the morning I never had appetite I couldn't eat breakfast. And I hated oatmeal even though I knew it was good for me! Turned out I just had to make a little change - oreos might not be healthy (but I only eat one or two) - but at least I enjoy my breakfast now, I eat a lot in the morning & I'm not hungry for hours! I lost 3 kilograms just from eating breakfasts (it affected how and what I eat later in) + another 5 when I started working out. Now breakfast is my favourite meal!

    I intermittent fast, so I only eat 12pm - 8pm so basically miss breakfast and honestly I have never felt so good!

    so really is breakfast that important?

    I find this really interesting because I'm a breakfast person and can't function without a big breakfast. Just goes to show that there is no 'one size fits all' approach. Out of interest, how much do you eat? Do you eat quite a lot in those 8 hours?
