I know I've mentioned on my cooking blog that I eat a lot of oatmeal. I really try to keep my breakfasts simple. For me, if I start my day off eating healthy it makes me feel better and motivates me to eat healthy for the rest of the day. Also, I workout first thing in the morning so my breakfast needs to replenish all the calories I've just burned off and fuel my body for the rest of the day. Besides oatmeal another one of my favorite breakfasts is protien shakes. They are quick, filling and delicious. This is one of my favorites. You can vary the fruit and flavor of protien for variety.
Strawberry Banana Protien Shake
1 cup (8 ounces) Light Vanilla Soymilk *see note below*
1 serving protien powder (this varies depending on which protien powder you buy, usually 1-2 scoops) I LIKE CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA
1/2 banana, sliced
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, slightly thawed
1/2-3/4 cup ice
Put all ingredients in blender. Blend until desired consistency is reached. Serve immeadiately.

Calories will vary depending on which protien and milk you use
*You can replace the Soy Milk with skim milk, but the Vanilla Flavored Soy Milk adds sweetness.*
