Question : Oatmeal vs. Eggs

Word up, it’s Tuesday. I hope this week goes by quickly. I just feel so busy right now I need the weekend so I can study for the GRE and get my life in order. I think I have an anxiety disorder because I get so stressed out and overwhelmed it’s not pleasant. Boo. I did a short run this morning and grabbed some grapes while walking out the door.

Guess what I had for breakfast? That’s right folks, oatmeal. This was a very good bowl with soymilk, naners, cinnamon and brown sugar. I added PB after the pic. I put the bowl together at home and let it marinate all the way to work – the result was a very creamy and sweet bowl. It barely needed any sugar. My oatmeal experiment is going well, I do feel like my blood sugar is a lot more stable throughout the morning, BUT – I have been craving eggs and stuff. I want a savory breakfast. I also think I need to incorporate protein into my breakfast. Especially after reading about how Kate says she overcame emotional eating. She gives a lot of credit to protein at each meal/snack – that is something I need to do for breakfast. I too have a history of emotional/binge eating and I do think my breakfasts in the past are notorious for lacking protein (I am known for overdosing on cereal till I feel sick, with no protein insight).I don’t know,
What is a “better” breakfast oatmeal or egg white sammie. What do you guys think?
We had a bunch of goodies in the office today because we had a visitor. I love bagels so I grabbed a half of one and cut it in half with some veggie cream cheese and some fruit.

  1. Try adding egg whites to your oatmeal pre-cook!! I usually make my oats with 1/4c egg whites and 3/4 or so cup of water for extra protein, and I sometimes add some yogurt on top for protein too!

  2. i agree with Chandra—add egg whites or yogurt to your oatmeal. or my personal favorite–cottage cheese! it makes it sooo much more filling.

  3. Egg white sammie đŸ™‚
    But i think it doesn’t help that I don’t have the taste for any oatmeal

  4. Id say oatmeal everytime! You could also add some nuts like walnuts or flaked almonds they give it a nice crunch and cold yoghurt is lovely on hot oatmeal

  5. Thanks ladies! I think I am going to try to egg whites this morning.

    Meghann – I love egg sammies lately! I’ve been having them for lunch so I can get oats and an egg sandwich in on day!

    Flower – I bought some walnuts recently to add to my oats because they are a “super food”. I just have to start using them.

  6. I vote eggs.

  7. Arielle – I know you have that same deal as me with eating too much cereal. I knew you would vote eggs :)I still haven’t tried that eggs in a basket or toad in a hole or whatever they call it.
