Oat/soy/millet flakes (4-5 tbs)
Chia seeds (1 small tsp)
Soy proteins (1 tsp)
Chopped up dry dates (4-5 big ones)
Cinnamon
Dry fruit bits (pineapple for example)
Nuts/almonds

I let everything soak in rice or soy milk all night, and sometimes add a bit of homemade marmalade to the mix before eating it. Very tasty plus I am rarely hungry before 1 pm, when I take my lunch break.

Breakfast means nothing to me. Its just something to do to start the day, and a pre cursor to get out the door to work. So I don't really give 2 shits about it. Don't expect it to be particularly amazing so am never disapointed. :wink: Same for lunch. Its just fuel. But dinner? Now thats something I'm a bit more passionate about. :D
Been a bit lazy recently. Used to always make porridge with soymilk and organic raisins/mollases, but now its just half soy milk/half boiling water on usually 4 weetbix( or 5 if I'm doing over 3+rides a week) and brown or muscovado sugar.

Not sure about the protein content but it was love at first bite for me. It's like eating a bag of toffees. Nice in a snack bag mix with almonds and/or walnuts.

Bob- you can order white mulberries cheaply from healthysupplies, along with other stuff. They are pretty good and post anywhere in Europe. My friend in Denmark orders from them because they have such good deals.

Nice site will check them out flux, but yeah mulberries are class they are very moreish hard to put them down once you start.

Not that, that is a bad thing whilst bulking. Im like that with all dried fruit actually although more so with the mulberries. Have you tried raw incan berries. They are very tart and sour but again moreish and very healthy.

every day.... a big bowl of 1/3 granola, 2/3 grape nuts (cereal), scoop of flax meal, handful of blueberries, sliced strawberries, and soy milk. then orange juice and 2-3 cups of coffee. never tire of it.

what's sick is that even when my wife makes her famous and super delicious vegan pancakes, waffles or other goodies, i still prefer my aforementioned breakfast. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day.

tempeh with peanutbutter

1) cut tempeh into desired thickness
2) fry tempeh strips in olive oil
3) apply liberal coating of peanutbutter
4) enjoy

1 packet of tempeh = 45grams high quality protein

Must pick up some tempeh again soon been a while.

Baldy i notice you said you stick them waffles in the toaster, does that actually work? I thought they were meant for the oven.

It works like a dream! I have at least a couple of toasted potato waffles a day.

Sweet i must give this a try would save alot of hassle. Do they take quite a while in the toaster? If i remember they take a fair bit in the oven.

2 - 3 normal toast cycles. They are great in a sandwich with baked beans and some mayo.
