"I'm often pressed for time in the morning. I often eat a handful of almonds and a Boca spicy 'chicken' patty, which takes me four minutes. When I have more time, cereal and strawberries." -- Dr. Nitin Kumar, Bariatric Endoscopy Institute
"I like eggs, and they happen to be chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and healthy proteins, and amino acids. On my days off, when I have an extra minute to cook, I will make an omelet with two organic egg whites, 1oz of organic milk, stirred, salted, and lightly fried with some coconut or olive oil. Some days I will cut some scallions and a strip of red pepper into my omelet, or on other days I prefer to add an ounce of Vidalia onion with four to five grape tomatoes and dill. Either way, I typically top the almost-ready omelet with a pinch of organic mozzarella cheese." -- Dr. Svetlana Kogan, author of Diet Slave No More!
"Ezekiel multigrain bread toast with organic natural (peanuts-only) crunchy peanut butter, cup of delicious chai (milk and tea leaves boiled with ginger, sugar, cardamom, and mint), and a banana or some other fruit." -- Dr. Urvish Shah, gastroenterologist
"My favorite breakfast is a small portion of steel-cut oatmeal sprinkled with walnuts, black raspberries or blueberries, along with a cup of green tea and an 8oz glass of water, preferably alkaline water." -- Dr. Joseph Mosquera
"I make a smoothie (about 16oz or so) with two scoops of whey protein (Cornerstone, Synergy Ultimate Balance, UltraMeal, or UltraMeal rice), one scoop ground flaxseed, one scoop hempseed, 4-6oz of milk (rice, soy, almond, hemp, coconut, hazelnut, or low-fat cow), frozen or fresh fruits (berries, usually), nut butter, and a variety of other vegetables including greens (spinach, kale, chard), bell peppers, and herbs." -- Dr. Allan Sosin, internist and nephrologist
"I eat fruit and unsweetened Greek yogurt, or eggs and oatmeal for breakfast. If I'm in a hurry, I’ll pick one of my protein smoothies or protein bars." -- Dr. Caroline Apovian, director of the Nutrition and Weight Management Center at the Boston Medical Center
