    Protein smoothie with banana and 1/2 cup of nonfat milk - approx. 275 cals
    2 eggs with a buttered english muffin - approx. 350 cals
    tim hortons maple oatmeal - 220 cals
    starbucks spinach and egg white breakfast sandwich - 290 cals.

    This rotation works well for weekend breakfasts, quick weekday options and days i have no time at all :)

    cooked oats - 1/4 cup cooked, then on top... I put the following:
    flax seed - 1 Tbs
    banana - 1 sliced medium size
    dash of brown sugar
    Raw walnuts - 2 Tbs
    Enjoy with coffee and a splash of dairy free creamer

    Oatmeal with whey protein and either frozen berries or canned pumpkin.
    Bran flakes with fruit and skim milk / almond milk / whatever is white and milk-like in the fridge.
    Greek yogurt with fruit and whey protein.
    And last but not least, leftovers. There's no reason that breakfast needs to be a "breakfast food".

    I go to the gym at 5am but I need to eat a little something before I go, otherwise I get dizzy and lightheaded. Before I leave, I always have a little peanut butter on half of a whole wheat sandwich thin. It's enough to get me through my workout.
    Then I eat my actual breakfast once I get to my desk at work. I usually have one of these or a combination of any of them...
    Freezer breakfast sandwich
    Hard boiled eggs (I had to take a break from these, I was getting sick of them)
    Overnight oats, usually with cranberries, pecans, flax and chia seeds. Sometimes with fresh fruit.

    I used to eat Greek yogurt but it always messed with my stomach so I gave up on that.

    This week for breakfast I had pre-baked slices of sweet potato and then heated them up each morning and used them like toast. I put things like peanut and berries, goat cheese and walnuts, and yogurt and berries on them.

    I bake oatmeal muffins, enough for two work weeks at a time. I need to add some nuts or something so I'm not so snacky. Has to be grab and go for me.

    I eat overnight oats pretty much every morning. Sometimes I’ll steam some sweet potato and make an over medium egg to put on top

    My go to breakfast most days is a smoothie made with:
    -1 cup unsweetened cashew milk (super creamy!)
    -1 banana
    - 5 frozen strawberries
    - 1 Tbsp just peanuts crunchy peanut butter
    - 1 Tbsp greek yogurt
    - 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
    Use your handheld blender and bam! Taste is amazing! Sometimes I have a toasted nature path flax plus waffle with it.

    Last weekend I made a hashbrown breakfast casserole with frozen shredded hashbrowns, diced ham, cheddar cheese and eggs. I cut it into portions and I've been taking that to work with me every morning this week. Came out to about 280 calories per piece :)

    mostly some form of breakfast sandwich , 100 cal english muffin, egg white cooked in a microwave cooker for 1 min, a laughing cow wedge (pepper jack or smoked gouda) and either smushed avocado or some jimmy deans turkey sausage crumbles i keep in the freezer tossed in the egg to cook. Or i'll make it with southwest egg beaters, velveeta cheese and precooked bacon. usually falls between 180-220 cal depending.

    I am looking for ideas for quick breakfasts. What did you eat this morning for breakfast? What are your favorite breakfasts before you have to run out the door?

    Often scrambled eggs with pre-cooked chicken breakfast sausage that I just have to nuke for 45 seconds. It only takes a couple minutes to scramble eggs.
