This morning I enjoyed a slice of hearty whole wheat bread with a smear of peanut butter and ground flax seeds. Janet
Pecan rice toast with local goat cheese, blueberries and agave syrup drizzled on top. Sometimes I'll replace the blueberries and agave syrup with lots of fresh parsley, chives and rosemary. Lauren
Blueberry, spinach pancakes with fresh strawberries! Really are the best! And the other would be flax-flake-coated apple cinnamon French toast, topped with a mix of fresh berries. Debbie
Whole wheat toast topped with organic butter, nutritional yeast and avocado! Gillian

Living in Japan, occasionally I just have to have my American scrambled eggs, bacon and whole-wheat toast with blueberry jam, a glass of orange juice and a small cup of coffee. But usually I have the toast with some salad and some fruit and some green tea. Daniel

Eggs
Two poached omega-3 eggs over 1/4 avocado drizzled with a little balsamic or fresh lemon. Julie
Free-range egg fried in just a touch of olive oil or safflower oil, topped with cheese from an organic farm and nestled on a toasted sprouted-grain English muffin.... served with a few strawberries or blueberries and washed down with green tea or water. Wendy
2 egg whites, 2 pieces of turkey bacon and sliced cucumbers or tomatoes- sometimes slice of multigrain toast. Michelle
I love egg-white omelets with lots of vegetables. Cottage cheese with fresh fruit is another favorite.  Lisa

Our daughters love a morning when we have smoked wild Alaskan salmon with berries and French toast.  Arnie  
Non-gluten toast with coconut oil, a poached egg, slice of smoked salmon, bowl of blueberries, oatmeal with cinnamon. Kat

I like a container of "berry" yogurt with cut up extra berries and a banana, and a multiple-vitamin. Dirk
Banana and Brazil nuts with natural yogurt. Katy
Unsweetened yogurt with fresh fruit. Milton
I like organic low-fat plain yogurt blended with frozen blueberries. Tastes just like ice cream! Connie  
Smoothie: mango, blueberries, banana, dilute cranberry juice, yogurt and sometimes some psyllium for fiber and/or almond milk and/or honey for flavor... Angie
I typically start my day with fresh assorted fruit and some granola. Good start to my day! Shawny
An organic apple smeared with 2 Tbs. of natural peanut butter (by natural I mean, nuts and nuts alone!) Susan

Legumes
Lentils with garlic, turmeric, cinnamon, mint and spinach (my own concoction) on na'an with a dollop of plain organic yoghurt, or steel cut oats with grated ginger and cinnamon, teaspoon of honey and dried blueberries. Whitney
Scrambled tofu with lots of vegetables and some brown rice...and of course a cup of kukicha tea.

Oatmeal
Healthy whole grain cold cereal with blueberries one day and oatmeal with blueberries the next. Ella
Oatmeal, goat milk, trail mix, and maple syrup...one of the best things ever. Mark
Thick-cut oatmeal cooked with 1/2 water, 1/2 almond milk; topped with toasted walnuts, unsweetened coconut and drizzle of maple syrup. Lilan
Oatmeal with apples and walnuts. I dice an apple and throw it in before cooking. I toss in a handful of walnuts and top with a smidgen of honey before eating. I enjoy with hot black coffee. Patty
Hot bowl of oatmeal, wild blueberries, ground flax seeds, walnuts, a little brown sugar and topped with plain yogurt...mmmmm. Meg
Believe it or not...oatmeal! I can add all kinds of dried fruit, fresh fruit, jams, nuts, trail mix, soymilk, yogurt, and make it different every day. Dari

Irish oatmeal, soymilk and fresh fruit! Debbie
Irish oatmeal with sheep's milk and fresh fruit, and black tea! Keeps me going strong all morning! Tracey
Organic steel cut oatmeal with unsweetened shredded coconut flakes, cran-raisins and fresh or frozen blueberries...and hot lemon water. If I'm really hungry (I am still nursing my 17 month old son) I add turkey sausage as a treat!!! Stacey
My favorite is 1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal with Brown Cow fat-free blueberry Greek yogurt and some ground flaxseed mixed in. That is so delish and it keeps me filled well into the afternoon! April
Irish oats, soymilk, maple syrup, and flax seeds. Wendy  
I like old fashioned oats cooked with almond milk, a few slivered almonds tossed in, and dried apricots. After cooking, I stir in 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed meal, one teaspoon of maple syrup and one teaspoon of peanut butter. Delicious! JoAnne
My allergies are off the chart so healthy meals are hard. No fruit other than citrus, blueberries and blackberries, no tree nuts, no shellfish, no soy . . . It is difficult. Breakfast usually is organic yogurt, I put steel cut oats on the night before so they are somewhat chewy. At times I put blueberries or blackberries in too. Katrina
Steel cut oats with some ground flaxseed, dried cranberries and a mix of nuts sprinkled on the top; along with a strong cup of English Breakfast tea. Heavenly. Nana
Steel cut oats with soy yogurt (cinnamon and turmeric mixed into the yogurt), blueberries (or other fruit), then topped with chopped walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds (or other seeds, nuts). Yummers. Sweetened with agave if necessary. Oh, and maybe some dark chocolate chips. Nummers! Edith
A friend taught me how to make hot cereal in the rice cooker. We toss in cracked wheat or rolled oats, water, slivered almonds, flax seeds and dried fruit. In just a few minutes? We have a delicious hot breakfast. Vickie

Other Whole Grains
Tofu, brown rice, pineapple and yogurt. All mixed together. Matt
Unsweetened goat yogurt or brown rice (or quinoa) porridge boiled with plenty of fresh ginger topped w/fresh mix of cilantro and scallion, and Himalayan sea salt, pumpkin seeds, sesame and sunflower seeds...it 's really heavenly and jam-packed w/nutrients giving plenty of energy. Susan
I made what will become my new favorite this morning: leftover brown rice from last night's dinner, topped with unsweetened vanilla soymilk, a handful of blueberries, and a sprinkling of ground flaxseed....In the microwave for a minute or so....YUMMY!!  Carol
Blueberries on Kashi cereal with flax seed, and organic soy milk. Nancy
Muesli with plain yogurt, nuts, raisins, and fresh fruit in season. (I lived in Switzerland many years ago and muesli has been a favorite ever since.) But sometimes I eat organic scrambled egg with tofu bacon and a flax seed waffle with organic maple syrup. Karen
Organic quinoa made with coconut milk, honey, raisins, almonds, pecans, cinnamon, vanilla extract, dash of coconut oil and flakes. And a strawberry and blueberry smoothie. Jill-ann

Vegetables
When I'm in a rush, I'll have one avocado. Jo Ann
Mixed green salad with lots of varieties of veggies, tuna or legumes for protein and some kind of light dressing. It stays with me for hours. Annie
Green leafy vegetable cooked with wakame and coconut oil, or boiled beets served with homemade organic yogurt and sprinkled with flax seed/ wheat germ. Tati
My favorite breakfast ever since childhood is something that was commonly eaten in southern Italy for breakfast and as a snack: "pane e pomodoro" (bread and tomato)......day old thick crusty bread, ripe small tomatoes cut and rubbed on both sides, dried oregano... more sprinkled on top, extra-virgin olive oil, and salt. I'm going to Italy in a couple of days and will be chowing down on it.....yes I can eat it here too, but it tastes better in Italy!! Anna Maria
I have to say, a homemade smoothie with organic soymilk and frozen berries along with eggplant and spinach with fresh garlic over a piece of sesame bread. I know it doesn't sound like breakfast....lol. Natalie

Yogurt
I love Greek yogurt with raw honey, blueberries on the side. Christine
Cup of Fage (Greek) yogurt- mixed fruits (berries) - rolled oats and
