I love the Florentine Breakfast Pizzas. I like to dip them in a little bit of ketchup-- yummy.

I also really like the cranberry almond cereal. Granted, I feel kind of silly ordering the cereal (because a box of Cheerios or Special K would be a lot cheaper...), but it's all about the portion control. So it's worth the extra cost for me.

Least favorite would be the cheesy omelette. Not a fan of the cheese sauce at all.

i like the florentine, smothered in salsa. The sunshine, with tomato slice and salsa and sprouts. sometimes i ike the pancakes just for variety.
i agree the cereals are expensive for a small bag, but yes the portion control and discipline is important and worth the extra cost while we are learning to properly eat.
i dont care for any of the breakfast bars, or muffins or the french toast. Occasionally i might get a breakfast bar , like the barscotti or something and just have it as a snack. I'll keep a couple in my car for an emergency if i run out of food and need some fuel.

When you look in the mirror and see no change, and still keep faith, knowing that in time you will get there if you stay focused and on track, that's the difference between those who succeed and those who fail.

My alltime fave is the florentine pizzas as well, I put garlic powder on them and then after theyre cooked stir hot sauce into the mixture. I also love the ranchero skillet and the breakfast stuffed sandwich. I put peanut butter on my french toast and occasionally the JC syrup. It's more calories but I LOVE to add real PB once in awhile.

I like the Ranchero Breakfast Skillet, the French toast, and the Sunshine sandwich! I like all the cereals too. I agree they are not cheap for what they are but I like that I can get a variety.

I used to love the french toast then this morning I had it and it was not good at all. Almost tasted fishy which is weird because fish has never been in my microwave nor in our house. I even tried microwaving first then putting it in the toaster to crunch it up a bit.

The only breakfasst I like are the pancakes and the stuffed sandwich. Usually I just make my own omelet in the morning with whole grain english muffin.

I LOVE the oatmeal breakfast square!! I eat one every weekday morning (yes, I'm doomed because they are being discontinued soon--I have a stash!). This is the most convenient meal ever and has less sugar than the other JC bars.
On the weekends I eat the florentine breakfast pizzas because I have time to cook them in the oven. I add my home roasted bell peppers (red, yellow, orange--no green because they aren't sweet enough for the pizzas IMHO). I also add roasted onion. It all falls off the top but I fork some on each bite of pizza!
I love the french toast too. BUT , I add the fruit to my 1/4 cup sugar free syrup (I buy mine at the store rather than use the JC packet) and zap the fruit when I heat the syrup. I also zap the french toast but for only long enough to get the frost off it. Then I put it in my toaster and crisp it up. I spray the french toast with I can't believe it's not butter and then pour the fruit/syrup mixture over the pieces. I top 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries and 2 tablespoons of whipped cream!! It's delicious with my morning skinny vanilla latte (home made).
I have been making my own French toast at home lately (using diet bread and egg beaters). I still fix it up like the JC french toast though. It does take too much time on a weekday morning, but is perfect when I have more time to really savor the dish!

Amy,

I don't like the cheese sauce on the omelet either so what I do is microwave for maybe 15-20 seconds then I can pry off the cheese sauce and just run warm water over it to loosen the potatoes stuck in there. There is plenty of cheese inside the omelet. I really like it like this and it saves a few calories from a cheese sauce I don't even like. I actually do this with the breakfast scramble as well since I don't care for that sauce either. Takes a little extra effort but I really like both of these breakfasts now without the sauces.

For breakfast I typically rotate between the barscotti, cinnamon rolls, sunshine sandwich, stuffed sandwich, French toast and pancakes.

I wanted to like the Florentine pizza but it just doesn't taste good to me.

I just had the Florentine Breakfast Pizzas. I really like them. I added a slice of tomato and a little bit of red onion to them before heating. Then, I added just a smidge of grated Cojita cheese. It was delicious.

I have liked all the breakfast items so far. It is a lot better than the bagel and cream cheese I ate or some other random item I would grab in a hurry. I am actually enjoying my breakfasts much more now. I love the variety.

My favorite breakfast is the sunshine sandwich. I toast the buns in the toaster and spray with some butter spray. I add half a slice of low fat swiss cheese...and its yummy! I also toast the french toast in the toaster...I think it makes it crispier and i prefer that texture.

I have a major sweet tooth, so I rotate around these for breakfast: french toast, pancakes, blueberry loaf, cinnamon and I'll thrown in a sunshine sandwich for good measure. I don't hate it, it's just okay, but I do find I lose weight the next day when I have them (weird, huh?) I wish I liked them more, but my sweet tooth taketh over, so I'll only tolerate them once a week. :lol:

SISTER!!! Posted ImageGreat minds think alike. My freezer looks the same way. My desserts of choice are brownies, cheesecake and red velvet cupcakes. Each topped with a generous amount of fat-free Cool Whip (we are allowed 6 tablespoons of it a day on our extras, so I don't hold back :P ). And instead of the miniscule Anytime bar, I have a Weight Watchers Greek Yogurt bar. They are only 80 calories, a generous portion and delish! I know the Anytime bars have more vitamins/minerals, but I take plenty of supplements a day and save calories and money this way. I feel like I get dessert 3 times a day eating this way....and I'm consistently losing weight to boot! What sweet tooth addict wouldn't love this diet?!?
