I usually have a bowl of plain Quaker oatmeal (not the little flavored packets). I throw a blob of coconut oil on top, mash in half a banana and pour a little rice milk on top. I find it doesn't need any other sweetners and it goes down real smooth.
 
But my favorite is a bowl of cooked millet (slow cooked for 4 to 6 hrs.) with a blob of coconut oil, a little cinnamon and some seedless raisins thrown in. I don't use any kind of milk or other sweetner with the millet.
 
And you?

I eat the same thing for years now I know I am weird. Its one slice of thin Whole grain bread toasted with mayo and three slices of a good swiss cheese and huge mug (3 cups) worth of green tea sweeten with Agave nectar.

Sugar,

Your breakfast sounds more fulfilling than mine! I can only eat sourdough bread. Can't do the multi-grain, or the cheese, or the mayo...and I love all three! Sometimes I do the mayo anyways, and I pay for it. I just don't do well with vinegars, dairy and sugar stuffs.

Ever now and then when I have more time, I'll do egg whites and wrap them up in a tortilla with some cheese.

I drink an Ensure every morning, it gets my system going right away, then I know I can leave the house after about two hours. I works well for me.

I was doing Egg Beaters, turkey sausage, and an English muffin for breakfast, but I've been having nausea problems lately, too.  So it's been Ensure or Boost for me during the week.  On the weekend I can wait until the worst has passed and then have real food.

Do the rest of you feel your worst in the morning? I have to get up 2-3 hours before work just to get stabilized and get going! I miss those days when I could jusf fly out the door!!! On bad days, I can only eat some sourdough bread toast. On good days, I can eat cereal with Lactaid milk. I too, seem to tolerate some cheese , but can't drink non lactose free milk, I can't really understand that at all! I alternate between D and C and never seem "normal." Either way, morning and before bed are always the hardest. Good lucK

I am always terribly nauseaus in the morning. I usually start by sucking on ice cubes for a while, then might try a banana....It's hours before I can eat again. I can tolerate a cup of coffee( latte) later in the day with honey. ...but that sometimes leaves me feeling nauseaus again, and ends up causing cramping and D.
I love slow cooked rolled oats with brown sugar and a bit of half and half, but that is reserved for days when I don't have to leave the house.

this morning, I almost went to get hotcakes from McD's, but I thought better of it. lol

Instead, I had toasted rye bread with org. peanut butter and jam (sweetened with concentrated grape juice), a banana, and an organic decaf coffee with org. cream and honey. What a contrast, eh?

It was better for me than McD's hotcakes. ;-)

Upon waking my husband gets me a large glass of warm water, I always feel thirsty since my operation, for breakfast sometimes I manage half a Banana either on its own or sometimes I'll toast a piece of wheatmeal bread and have honey and Banana on it, about 11ish I'll have the other half Banana and lately a decafe coffee made with soy milk......( I have missed my coffee so much ) I work from home, so much easier for a Crohnie.

Gosh, I'm impressed that you can manage oatmeal. I miss porridge!

For breakfast I have a bowl of semolina cooked with soy milk and honey, a serve of fruit, and a cup of tea.

Wow. Everyone here seems to be okay with eating tropical fruit and bread. I miss bread and bananas. I've opted to take a vitamin b complex and rice cakes.
Breakie for me is.....1 granny smith apple, 1/2 avocado, dipped in 1 Tblsp ground flax seed. Green tea with fresh slices of ginger root help with inflammation. The apple aids digestion, the avocado keeps me full longer, the flax seed acts like a dirt sweeper...it picks up anything that's been hanging around for too long and ..um...effectively escorts it out.
Rice cakes with a boiled egg, butter and real bacon bits on top is another favorite of mine.
Next time any of you enjoy a banana...take a bite for me, will you.

I used to eat so much for breakfast.. now i stay safe.. Mornings are my absolute worst time.. Until 9 am I don't want much..
So at 5am I start with a warm tea with ginger root (new thing that has worked so far)..
at about 6:16 I drink a dan active.. and if around 9 if I'm feeling ok  I will get a little breakfast (toast, bagel, eggs, very basic foods).

I really miss milk too.. My hubby is funny (he really helps me stay strong.).. He hounds me in the kitchen cause I was a milk addict and he knows Ill sneek some.. But it really does hurt me, it causes sharp pains... (sometimes I just want one one good sip though).. I try and stick to lactaid milk though..
 
I had heard that raw coconut really helps.. Has anyone else heard this or tried it??

the banana i had today w/lunch is dedicated to tiredcrohn. :)
i was a skim milk junkie but gave it up for rice milk after my Dx. I usually have organic cereal (kashi) with r.milk and ALWAYS wash it down w/ OJ. sometimes i'll have organic waffles w/blueberries or a whole grain eng. muffin w/organic peanut butter.
