I usually can get down a bowl of grape nut cereal and a protein shake with yogurt and milk. It's tough for me to eat mass in the morning, so i'm looking for new ideas. Eggs and oatmeal i've tried but I can't even force feed them.

How about you guys? This q is mainly for weight gainers.

bran flakes with 2 percent milk
shake - blend together 4 eggs (soft boiled to kill the salmonella and also make the protein more bioavailable), 35g whey, orange juice

yum

I usually go with cereal and a shake on the days I am working cause it's easy and I'm pressed for time. On my days off I'll make an omlete or denver....something with eggs. Fruit too.

I get more then enough calories between noon and ten at night. I can easily pack in 4500 calories if needed.

I'm dieting right now but my breakfast hasn't changed much...

1 whole egg, 5 egg whites, .5 cup of oatmeal

When I'm not dieting I'll throw some brown sugar and mixed berries in with the oatmeal.

I tend to eat a lot for breakfast.
2-3 big ass potatoes with a little butter melted over it and then add some dipping sauce for added flavour. (usually tomato sauce but brown sauce goes down a treat as well) and of course can't forget the glass of milk.

Hey mattburns where about you from in UK?

lovely area. good to see some brits on here.

Yeah the brown sauce does get sickly at times which is when I switch to a mass bowl of porridge.

why do you do it though? Isn't it wasting valuable time you could be feeding your muscles protein to repair damage from lifting? Or do you not lift heavy or something (I see a 1k total in your sig so you must have at SOME point!).

When bulking a shake with whole milk, oatmeal, natty PB, nitrean, and a banana. When cutting I drop the natty PB and banana and use skim milk.

A bowl of ramen and a protein shake.
Pretty much every common breakfast food out there interferes with my ADHD medication though.

As long as I have time to wake up then I have a good appetite in the morning. I'll usually have some kind of cooked breakfast.

2-4 large rashers of thick bacon, or 2-4 sausages
2-4 pieces wholemeal bread, or a bowl of porridge
An apple
Pint of milk.

A couple of days ago I also had a large home-made burger for breakfast too. Such a good way to start the day.

You mean you put peanut butter and raw oatmeal inside your shake?

Sounds like a good idea, but how is the consistency?

Mr. Mustard

1 whole egg
2 serving of pure egg whites (1 cup)
1 cup of brown rice (I know, weird for breakfast)
Banana

Also, 50g whey protein shake.

I workout first thing in the morning and eat right after. The brown rice is just a good source of carbs for after the workout.

Oatmeal is fine if you blend it before hand, or even cook it for better results.

As far as peanut butter goes, it blends just fine, but don't use chunky. It also really adds a lot to the flavor.

Yup, blend the oatmeal up dry then add the other stuff and it all mixes really well, I hardly notice the natty PB in the consistency but it makes it taste really good. I do this so I can drink the shake while I prepare my 3 work meals, works out really efficiently.

On normal days:
1/2 cup quick oatmeal cooked in 1 cup milk. throw in a few dry raisins for some taste.
1 whole egg + 3 egg whites
1 glass of OJ (w/ Fish Oil, Ginkgo, Multis & Glucosamine Chondroitin)
2 glasses of water


If I'm short on time:
I just blend raw oatmeal with milk and protein

Daily breakfast for me: 2 eggs w/ 6 eggwhites, and a cup of rolled oats. sometimes its hard for me to get all of the oats down though, usually only down like a half cups worth. oatmeal just fills me up fast lol

Make up a shake the night before so it has time to soak.

2 cups of oats
1 large scoop of whey
decent handful of berries (rasberries, blueberries)
1-2 Bananas depending on the size
Skimmed milk (about 0.7 litre)
Large tablespoon of milled flaxseeds
Large tablespoon of psyllium husks
Decent serving of low fat probiotic yogurt
Top it up with water.


Wack it in a blender, makes 3 shakes which I consume throughout the day.

Tastes amazing

I make a nice "Sausage McMuffin".
Make up some mince patties to throw in the freezer for a weeks worth.
Throw them under the grill in the morning, toast the muffins and put some cheese on them.

10 scrambled eggs, protein bar in the car on the way to work, then a shake at work when I start working rather than having a coffee - but thats if I start in the morning, if I start at night I generally have a roast dinner for breakfast and then some burgers on the way to work.

Here's 2 great recipes for protein muffins. I use unflavored Whey Protein for both recipes to keep them from getting too sweet, and I found a really cheap source (bulkfoodsdirect.com). The zucchini muffins are a bit sweeter than the carrot apple, but both are delicious and very filling. Enjoy!



Zucchini Protein Muffins

with Coconut Streusel Topping

3 lg. eggs
2/3 c. canola oil
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. shredded zucchini
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple, well drained
1 c. flour
1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 scoop protein powder
2 tsp. baking powder
tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c. pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Combine eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in zucchini and pineapple. Set aside.

In separate bowl mix together flours, protein powder, baking powder, soda, and salt. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Do not over mix. If using, fold in nuts. Fill greased muffin tins or muffin papers full of batter. Top with streusel topping if using. Bake for 25-30 min until muffins are not soft when touched and tops are lightly brown. Makes 18-24 standard sized muffins.

Streusel Topping (Optional)
1 c. flour
1 scoop protein powder
1 sugar
tsp. salt
c. sweetened coconut
c. cold butter, cut into pieces.
Mix together flour, protein powder, sugar, salt, and coconut. Work cold butter into dry ingredients with a pastry blender or your fingers until mixture is crumbly.



Carrot Apple Bran and Flax Protein Muffins

1 c. flour
c. flaxseed meal
1 scoop protein powder
c. oat bran meal
1 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. carrots (approx. 4 medium carrots), shredded
2 granny smith apples, peeled and shredded
c. raisins (optional)
1 c. pecans or walnuts, chopped
c. buttermilk
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 c. canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, flaxseed meal, protein powder, oat bran, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl, set aside.
In another mixing bowl, combine milk, beaten eggs, canola oil, and vanilla. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Do not over mix.
Fill greased muffin tins or muffin papers full. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Yields 24 standard sized muffins.
