high protein breakfast that isn't eggs

I hate eggs and it seems like almost every healthy eating plan that I've looked at has omelets, breakfast burritos, and scrambled egg whites as breakfast options. I've tried my best to bite the bullet and try to get used to eating eggs for breakfast, but it's just so gross to me. The taste, the texture, everything. There's not a single way that I actually like eggs.

What would you suggest for a high protein breakfast that doesn't include eggs? (I'm also working toward a wheat-free lifestyle...)

    Breakfast doesn't have to be traditional breakfast foods. I've had tuna salad for breakfast since I was craving it! Cottage cheese is another good one. I've added protein powder or cottage cheese to oatmeal (when I used to eat it - make sure it says gluten-free).

    You need to ditch the idea that you have to eat breakfast foods for breakfast. Try some chicken, or any other protein that you like.

    A smoothie with almond milk with greek yogurt and some natural nut butter and ice. Or what about low sodium and natural sliced deli meat with some cheese?

    Yes! Think outside the cereal bowl!

    My breakfast smoothie today. I used plain, low fat kefir, tofu, and flax seed to get the protein up there. If I wanted even more protein I could have thrown in some whey protein powder, too.

    You can mix chicken in and saute with salsa and veggies. Yum...add black beans, too. :-)

    I agree with ditching the traditional breakfast, which, if you don't have eggs, often consists of pancakes, waffles, toast, and other carbs. Try ground turkey and veggies, chicken, etc.

    Easy breakfast smoothie:

    1 cup milk (I use almond unsweetened almond milk)
    1 to 1.25 scoop vanilla protein powder
    1/2 cup still-frozen berries (you can buy them in a bag in the freezer section)
    1 pack of sweetner to taste (I like with strawberries, not needed with any other berry)

    Blend in blender. It ends up like a milkshake without the guilt.

    How about ground turkey patties?? It come to about 24gms of protein.

    Add 6 or more eggs to these baked oatmeal bars. You wont know the ggs are there, and they are very tasty. Also freeze well...make a batch and uou can use them for weeks. I usually add some dehyydrate apples and cranberries for more flavor.

    Edit: If you have a store with bulk foods, you could also add some whey protein isolate powder to bump your protein per serving

    Assuming you had a high protein dinner the night before...

    Leftovers.

    Don't feel like you have to have traditional breakfast food just because you're eating at the traditional breakfast time of day.

    I made a chicken salad this week with left over chicken breast, red grapes, chopped cucumber tossed in vanilla greek yogurt and sprinkled with pecans and dried blueberries. It made a great breakfast.

    Chia Seeds :D
    I add them to my cereal; 1 tbsp is 4g of protein.
    Plus they are a vegan-friendly source of omega3, and offer numerous other benefits! :-)
