    I'm simply not that hungry at breakfast. So, always only eat half a toasted bagel or a bowl of cereal. But as an individual with cardiovascular problems, would day cholesterol of around 200 ain't great. Whether I'd like to or not, bacon and a number of other foods left my approved diet list a while back. Earl

    Normally in my house we all have yogurt with honey and grape nuts and then maybe some toast with butter and jam and then a cup of coffee from the Keurig but yesterday morning I drove to the local bagel shop and I got an egg bagel with a side of cream cheese and lox...yummo!

    I would have to eat a lot of yogurt to stave off my early morning hunger, hence it is often a mid-morning snack.
    :D

    Interestingly enough, after I have my typical breakfast I'm very full. I'm all about the Greek yogurt. Maybe that makes the difference. :)

    I eat vanilla or plain flavored Greek yogurt, but it in no way will keep me full for very long; it is just a stopgap.
    :D
     
  6. Sorry. I have never understood any excitement over yogurt and why it is even a food. I highly doubt even mixing in freshly fried bacon bits would make it more attractive to me. Yup..just don't get it. It's Greek to me. [huh]

    I've noticed this word come up a lot lately too. :eeek:
    Bacon bits yogurt, for someone who wouldn't normally eat it, I might be inclined to try it.
    Okay I'd just eat the bacon bits.
    The only yogurt I've willingly eating was TCBY and that was 20yrs ago.
    I get the "probiotic" qualities, but I can find that in a pill form at GNC.
    If it can go down with all my other pills, I'll take it. ;)

    Hi

    About 5-10 years ago my Dad had some sort of infection and he was given a very strong antibiotic. After that he had trouble digesting his food, but he wouldn't eat Yogurt. Yogurt is supposed to have the organisms in it that help digest food. The Pro-biotic pill is probably just as good, but he wouldn't do that one either. Dad died, but he was 92 and 7 months when he did it...

    Plain Yogurt sucks pretty much, but the cheaper Blueberry, black cherry, and Lemon stuff is pretty good. The more expensive stuff has coffee flavored Yogurt which is good too. It's not my favorite food, but I eat it most weekdays.

    You're in luck, because Oikos actually makes a coffee flavored one...it's called latte i think...it's good for such an odd flavor combination.

    Oatmeal and berries. Blueberry, blackberry, raspberry most every morning plus protein shake. Sometimes some eggs instead. Need carbs and protein.
    Been eating healthy and getting in shape for a few years now. Wasn't way out of shape, just age catching up. It has worked.
    From everything I have read breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. Athletes, body builders etc always eat a very substantial and healthy breakfast. Gets the metabaolism going. Have to have coffee or a latte too. No sweetener.
