    Scrambled tofu. Asian style dishes with marinated tofu. Egg custard with sweetener. Breakfast burritos with a low carb wrap.

    If you have a bit of time in the morning, one of my favorite things to have is egg whites with plenty of veggies and some chicken sausage. Really good to make it greek style with spinach tomatoes and feta. I sometimes still follow up with a shake too sip on in the morning at work.

    And I agree that it doesn’t always need to be “traditional” breakfast food. I love to take some leftover chili and throw an egg on it. If you’re looking to reduce carbs leave out the beans and replace with a non-starchy squash or other veg.

    1 egg is 70 cals and 6 grams of protein. 1 Silva Sausage link is 170 cals and 12 grams of protein. That’s sausage and eggs for 240 cals and 18 grams of protein… not bad.

    If you want grab and go, Jimmy Dean English muffin sandwiches (sausage, egg, cheese) are 260 cals and 16g of protein.

    Check out recipes for cottage cheese flatbread - so good! I add feta cheese and olives to mine.

    Roasted chicken leg from ShopRite. You get 2 for $4.99. That's $2.50 per day. Same as a cup of coffee. Bonus: you won't be hungry at lunch time. Option: cup of bone broth for breakfast and have that chicken leg for lunch.

    3/4 cup of Good Culture low fat cottage cheese (it's creamy and so much tastier than any other cottage cheese I've ever tried) and a couple handfuls of berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries). 3/4 cup is 1 1/2 servings - this keeps me for 3 hrs. till lunch. Well under 300 calories and takes less than 5 minutes to put together (I'm not awake enough to cook in the morning). Try it - you may like it!

    These are fantastic suggestions! Here they are compiled for a high-protein, low-carb breakfast ...

    * Use egg whites or whole eggs, spinach, bell peppers, and mushrooms.
    * Half an avocado with a poached or boiled egg on top.
    * Mix chia seeds with almond milk and a bit of vanilla extract.
    * Sauté crumbled tofu with turmeric, spinach, and your favorite veggies.
    * Serve smoked salmon with avocado slices and a side of greens.

    Lean meat is high in protein and low in fat. Specifically with poultry and fish.
