Healthy Fulfilling Breakfast

I need some breakfast ideas. I'm cutting back on carbs. I CANNOT eat eggs. I hate yogurt. What do you usually have for breakfast?

    Do you like cottage cheese? I mix in berries with it. Yummy. Interesting though....I just got back from Europe and they always set out cheeses and meats for breakfast- that doesn't appeal to me in the morning, but a lot of folks were eating it.

    I do not like cottage cheese. I do like other cheeses and meats though. That's a good idea. Thanks.

    I love protein shakes, and that is what I have most days (2 scoops = 220 calories, 4g carbs, 50g protein). On weekends I like to have a rye toast with cream cheese and prosciutto. If you're cutting carbs, I still like cured meats and cheeses for breakfast even without the bread :)

    I generally don't eat breakfast, just have coffee with heavy cream.

    You don't have to eat "traditional" breakfast foods for your first meal of the day, eat whatever you want. I very rarely eat breakfast foods, my first meal of the day is generally anything from a salad to a cauliflower rice bowl to a grilled NY Strip steak and anything in between.

    Plain Cheerios and unsweetened almond milk.

    I used to eat eggs (vegetable omelet) and now am into smoothies, so that won't help.

    I am another who will recommend just eating whatever you'd eat at a non breakfast meal.

    What does cutting back mean? Under 50/day under 25/day? Savory oatmeal is good. I do eggwhites for my protein, but a scoop of protein powder would work well here plus cheese and sausage and avocado. 14g carbs 12net, for a 1/4 cup dry. Or move away from the breakfast idea entirely and do a lettuce wrapped chicken BLT with chicken breast mayo and bacon.

    I normally have fruit and yoghurt, but never mind...

    How about a mini fry-up? Sausages, bacon (or lower calorie/vegetarian equivalents) mushrooms, optional tomato? You can grill/broil them if you don't want to fry 'em.

    Alternatively, in continental Europe it's quite common to have a selection of sliced meats and cheeses for breakfast.

    Also what about tofu or tempeh? Its can serve as a good base for a scramble with meat and veg added.

    My first meal is usually lunch and that's a peanut butter and banana sandwich with coffee.
    On the rare times I eat in the morning, I just have leftovers from supper the night before.
    No need to relegate yourself to "breakfast" foods.

    Here's my only breakfast with no eggs, yogurt, or cottage cheese, that is also lower carbs than protein:


    Use non-chocolate, non-sweetened protein powder for less carbs. Although, this has so few calories now that it might be a snack rather than a meal:


    You could bump the calories up with coconut oil, which is what I used before switching to coconut shreds.

    I'm the type that needs breakfast foods for breakfast lol. I eat eggs and bacon on a tortilla or I eat oatmeal. Sorry those don't really work for you though. In your case, I'd just eat some other type of food that is not a "breakfast food". Whatever you like to eat for lunch and dinner, for example.

    I eat all kind of stuff. Pancakes with sausage, ramen, tuna packets, brookies lol. Doesn't have to be specific foods. Today I had chicken jalepeno sausages on bread for breakfast

    I also don't like yogurt (I'm not sure why people appear to be so resistant to this...) and am very picky about eggs (got food poisoning as a kid from eating them and even then I wasn't a big fan of most preparations). My typical breakfast is almost entirely carbs, that said I agree with the idea of eating some sort of meat. I also will eat leftovers for breakfast if I'm at home.
