My 5-point Power Breakfast

Written by astrohotty (stephanie) on 1/25/2011 10:02 AM | COMMENTS (20)

Hi WW friends!! I learned that when following this program, making the right choices can give you a lot for a little!

So good and satisfying! Egg sandwich with yogurt and a banana. You could substitute any fruit of course because fruits are zero points! You could eat strawberries or grapes or mangos. PF means Power Food. Here's my 5-point breakfast:

3 egg whites: 1 PF
1/2 cup spinach: 0 PF (I used the cut frozen kind)
1 slice whole wheat bread (folded in half to make a sandwich): 2
1/2 wedge Laughing Cow Light creamy cheese: 0
1 med banana: 0 PF
6 oz WW yogurt-peach: 2 PF
...and of course a bottle of water


So that's a lot of food for not a lot of points.

Remember, if you want to look like a skinny girl, you have to eat like one!

What do you like to eat for breakfast?

    Yum. I've got to look for the Laughing Cow cheese and try it! I have oatmeal usually and/or a piece of fruit-sometimes a small yogurt-not much of a breakfast eater except on the weekends :) Thanks to this community I am buying the Fiber One Yogurt for 1 point since the Yoplait Light went up in points. Thanks.

    My breakfast varies. Today I had oatmeal with sugar-free applesauce and walnuts. I also had a clementine. Other days I might have an omelet with veggies on whole-grain wrap or bread. Sometimes it's yogurt with fruit and oats.

    I toast one waffle, the Egge Special K lowfat brand, and put berries on top with fat free yougurt over it. I mix up the fruits and yougurts. Very low in points and it tastes like a dessert!

    Astrohotty and crowsgirl.. those are great ideas.. thanks so much! I have "cinch shakes" (Shakelee) that I mix with strawberries and bananas with a tbsp of flax. Some days I have it for breakfast and other days I have it for lunch.. I also use egg beaters (southwestern style or egg whites) laughing cow chipotle cheese, and Morning Star Veggie Sausage.. mix it all up and add salsa... YUMMO!

    Try this - Light English Muffin (3), 1 slice reduced fat cheddar (1), 1 egg white (0), 3 slices lean ham (1), 1 banana (0) - 5 points, and it's delicious!

    I'm having a light english muffin w/ light cream cheese (5PP), 4 slices of butterball turkey bacon (2PP), and a banana. I love adding more of my points to breakfast as it keeps me full longer...I just recently started adding the english muffin and has made a world of difference...if I didn't value my sleep so much I would totally do eggs in the morning!

    Last night I made the HG Grab N Go B'fast cookies and I really like them! They have lot's of fiber and I don't have to cook in the mornings! A definite plus for me :) This sounds like a good weekend B'fast for me though. I will definitely try it out.

    I'm not big on breakfast so I eat a banana and a fiber bar. Keeps me full until lunch time. I did your trick of a lot of food for very few points yesterday at lunch. 1 bell pepper and 1 wedge laughing cow light cheese, brussels sprouts, 2 oz, pan grilled fish and an apple and water= 4 points
