The most important meal of the day...

So Breakfast; the most important meal of the day and all that jazz. I was never much of a breakfast eater in the past, eating first thing in the morning always seemed to leave me ravenously hungry by 10am. Don't get me wrong, I love breakfast food, just not in the morning.

For the first 4-5 weeks of Weight Watchers I made a point of eating breakfast as they do say it helps kick start metabolism and mine needs all the help it can get!

On weekdays I tend to stick to porridge, working in an office with a limited kitchen and limited time to prepare anything Oat so simple sachets are a god send! Just 3pp for the sachet and 2pp for the milk.

I tend to spice things up a bit with toppings though, a vast array of fruit have turned a rather boring bowl of oats into a taste sensation I actually look forward to! My favourite combination so far has been peach and passion fruit.

On a weekend I tend to eat breakfast around 10:30-11:30, so it is more of a brunch really.
My latest obsession is a fried egg on toast, nothing in this world is more satisfying that spreading a runny yolk on warm buttered toast! And for just 7-8pp its a propoint bargain!

Although, if a little hungover or under the weather of a weekend I do like a nice green monster smoothie! which is basically any fruit you have handy, mixed with either milk or yoghurt, ice and handfuls of spinach! Surprisingly filling and tasty.

I do love my porridge and eggs but will be shaking things up in the coming weeks. I want to try and develop the perfect point-friendly pancakes, and quite fancy trying Weight Watchers bagels with a variety of toppings; smoked salmon and cream cheese anyone?

This is what I love about doing weight watchers, hardly anything is off limits because as long as you track it you can have it! There are some great weight watcher friendly recipes here.

  2. No help to you as I don't eat breakfast, but instead have a skinny latte (skimmed milk and 2 sugars) which is 2PP and fills me up until lunch!

  3. I nearly always have a few slices of ham and two boiled eggs on top. lots of protein and it fills me up til lunch, plus it feels ever so slightly naughty!
