Favorite breakfasts?

48 posts in this topic

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.

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:

Sandy,

SISTER!!! i_hug.gifGreat 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?!?

Sandy, thanks for the idea/suggestion about the WW greek yogurt bar. I'm going to try those! I like the Anytime Bars but they are quite pricey. I don't eat them everyday, but I do like to have something with me just in case. I'm going to the store today to get the yogurt bars! thanks again! ;)

The stuffed breakfast sandwich is now gone from my center. :( I bought some pancakes for this week but I have a feeling I'm going to be on my own making breakfast from here on out.
