Usually it's a crustless quiche. Mix up the usual chopped broccolli and spinach, some feta cheese and some meat up in a microwable safe bowl. Sometimes I add in a small amount of rice-lentil mixture to give it texture (1/4 cup), dump 2-3 beaten eggs over it and nuke it.

and does that turn out ok cooking it in the microwave? That's basically what I eat for breakfast when I have time but I'd cook it in a pan

RS, yeah, it turns out great. You have to nuke it , then stir it up, then nuke it again until completely set or it won't cook evenly. And it's a lot less clean up than doing it in a pan.

Oatmeal with skim milk, honey and walnuts. Then as soon as I get to work I eat an apple. One day a week, I fry a couple of eggs with toast.


What's with the skimmed milk?

Not to say it's a bad idea, I just always worry me being 110% in favor of fats could be misguided

Infact, pretty much everytime I see a suggestion for low fat I scoff at it and assume they are misguided (slight exaggeration, can't say im confident enough to say for sure that low fat products are pointless)

Tim D's sounds nice too - is the spinnach "raw" before the microwave though?

Just look at how well the Low Fat kick has worked over the last 40 years.....

Hint: Not very..... :grin:

How are you guys including veggies? do you cook some for dinner and let them cool (as opposed to straight in the fridge) then just throw them in the next day, or are they raw? (to an extent, i.e. they obviously get a little cooking in the egg mix)

I just throw mine in the frying pan a few mins before I dump the eggs in.....

I'll add cheese just before finishing.....

Looks like crap but it actually tastes great. It's basically a lazy mans omelete.

Usually a big bowl of porridge with sunflower seeds, linseeds and a dollop of honey. 1 or 2 pieces of fruit and some coffee, and depending on what time i go to the gym an omellete to follow. I do breakfast, brunch and lunch. I've settled on bacon, chorizo, onion, tomato and brie in my omellete at the moment.

Lately?

4 egg omelet with a cup of portabella mushrooms, cup of frozen spinach, 4-6 black olives fried in olive oil spray on a cast iron skillet.
2 pieces of Ezekiel toast w/1 tsp butter
Chicken or turkey sausage
Coffee
20g of either 85% or 90% cacao chocolate
sometimes a piece of fruit, too.

4 egg omelet with a cup of portabella mushrooms, cup of frozen spinach, 4-6 black olives fried in olive oil spray on a cast iron skillet.
1 cup steel-cut oatmeal with 1 tsp ground flax seeds, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 tsp+ cinnamon
Chicken or turkey sausage
Coffee
20g of either 85% or 90% cacao chocolate
sometimes a piece of fruit, too.

Either way it's roughly 900 kcals. Heavy on the fat, too, which keeps me satisfied until my next meal.

When I'm cutting for a tournament, I drop the bread or oatmeal and fruit, which overall drops my kcals noticeably and drops my carbs precipitously, both of which help me make weight.

sounds like it would only take a couple of minutes to make as well, going to give that a try

It's too bad that the advice that your'e getting to control your heart disease seems to be low fat/high carb when it appears that there are better ways of eating. Of course, experimenting with alternatives to see what happens is probably a scary idea. It would be better to seek a second opinion to see if another doctor might consider an alternative approach. Diabetics fall into the same dilema. What their doctor prescribes isn't working but they are told that to do anything else could be worse so they are too afraid to seek alternatives.

Note: This is just a general rant about medical advice/conventional wisdom. It's not an attack on your diet.

Disclaimer: I'm just an internet hack with no medical background so no one should take medical advice from me.
