So I haven't gone grocery shopping yet so I have very little to choose from and I am not really ready to make a meal plan. Its still summer so I'm still at home. Not at SCAD yet but we find out what houses we stay at on the 8th. Thank GOD!!!! Its killer waiting for it. I really want to know who my roommate is so that i can start sizing the poor girl up. Kidding. 
Anyways, what am i supposed to eat for breakfast in this country? I'm so used to eating cereal that when I think of breakfast that is the first thing i think of. But if you walk down the cereal aisle and actually READ the boxes you will notice that even the cereals that claim to be healthy are really just sugar, sugar and corn syrup... and maybe some whole grain. And they are not very straight forward with their serving sizes. on some boxes its per 3/4 cup. on others its per 24 biscuits and it will be the same exact brand just different flavors. How am i supposed to know what 24 biscuits looks like? or much less compare the boxes? The healthiest thing i found was Kashi's version of cheerios.... and it tastes like cardboard. i found myself putting my own sugar in it because it was just too gross to swallow. So it that was a bust.
As for eggs and bacon, not much of a fan of either. I've never really liked ham or pork products. makes me feel bloated. As for the eggs, my favorite recipe is an old family one where you put vanilla cream and some cheese and scramble it. In other words, you put a shit ton of sugar and oil in it. And I've never really like eggs with out it, but truth be told, i haven't really tried much. I have always been a really picky eater. So i think i should look into other scrambled egg recipes to see what i can find that is healthier and maybe get some veggies in.
As for today, i was hoping to have some greek yogurt and raspberries but lo and behold both have gotten too old and i had to throw them out. So I ended up eating two peices of whole grain toast with organic butter and cinnamon sugar (i hear cinnamon helps your metabolism) and organic no sugar added apple sauce. And coffee of course. I will not be giving that up. Don't even suggest it. It will not happen. I used organic vanilla cream and real sugar. I will probably make a post about the great sugar debate later. Does anyone know the truth about that? Splenda? Truvia? WTF? What wrong with REAL sugar?
Also, I'm curious about this Trop50 orange juice. I've heard that orange juice tends to have a lot of sugar in it but this one has 50% less sugar and calories in it supposedly. Tastes ok, but i haven't really read the ingredients.
So yeah, thats what i had for breakfast today. Probably going to go for an hour of cardio and a little bit of weights in a few. i would like to burn at least 500 calories today.
Post scrambled egg recipes!!!!!

try the greek yogurt again or a keifer. They're super high in protein and pretty low fat. Whenever I have one of those, I'm full for hours.

I go for almond honey special K, (but make sure you only have a serving size), 1 banana chopped into it, and 75g low fat yoghurt. keeps me satisfied for hours if you have it with a tea (or coffee!!) Also, i put a spoon of ground linseed over my cereal, doesn't change the flavour much but adds extra protein and all round goodness!
