    Depends..sometimes a pop tart, banana, and chocolate milk

    Other times, 3 scrambled eggs and orange juice

    And in desperate times 2 egg mcmuffins, 2 breakfast burritos and 2 hash browns from McDonald's

    I'm not a big breakfast eater, so I usually grab something on the go on weekdays - usually a quest bar or a kind bar. On weekends I love to do a brunchey salad or a homemade breakfast sandwich. Last but not least, every day also gets a giant cup of coffee to wash it down haha

    I like making homemade breakfast sandwiches on workout days. English muffin, sausage patty, and egg. Yummmm.

    Usually it's just orange juice and chia seeds.

    My breakfast is almost always the same

    omelet made of
    184 g egg whites
    28g cheddar cheese
    50g each broccoli, onion, bell pepper

    1 slice bacon
    3-4 cups coffee
    1 T heavy whipping cream in the coffee

    It's around 350-400 calories for all that food, plenty of filling fats and proteins, and lots of variety.

    On mornings I don't work out

    2 Hard Boiled Eggs, Cheese String or baby bel cheese and a piece or cup of fruit
    Nature Path Cereal with Almond Milk and a cup of fruit

    On Mornings I work out I eat the above but with a protein smoothie and that is where my fruit is instead of me eating it on its own.

    What YOU should have for breakfast will depend on how many calories you get at maintenance (TDEE), and when you prefer your calories. Do you prefer to have 3 big meals, 3 medium and a snack or two, or 6 smaller ones? Do you prefer to have most of your calories in the morning or in the evening? Or all spread out?

    I prefer a small breakfast, a medium lunch, and a big dinner most days with a tiny snack and sometimes a small dessert. This means that I like 2-300 cals for breakfast most days.

    Black coffee +
    - 2 mini-quiches (~260 cals) I premake these. The can be refrigerated or frozen. I use a whole egg and some spinach in each and change up the type of cheese depending on mood, but something like this: http://www.dinner-mom.com/ham-quiche-cups/
    - 1 boiled egg and a low cal (106 cals for 25g protein) protein shake made with almond milk (295 cals)
    - 2 eggs with a little spinach and feta (or two boiled) with a piece of toast, half an english muffin, a tortilla, or a third egg. (~250)
    - a "higher cal" protein shake or 2 scoops of a lower cal one. I use syntha six peanut butter which has the macros of a meal replacement type shake) (~200 cal)
    - a protein fiber bar and a piece of fruit (200-250)
    - Weight control instant oatmeal (~150 cal)
    - leftovers
    - greek yogurt and fruit sometimes with pudding mix to make it cheesecake like (150-250)

    Do you think eating 2 eggs is good, or is one egg enough?

    You should eat all of your calories in whatever way you see fit. Maintenance isn't so much about specific foods, just eat the right number of calories and try to hit your macros/micros.

    Personally I usually eat some kind of baked goods (scone, banana bread, etc), some fruit and some protein.

    Since breakfast is usually after workout, I have 1/2 grapefruit, old fashioned oats, 3 poached eggs.

    Impossible to say. Depends on the rest of your day and whether your calorie goal is reasonable.
