Low calorie high protein breakfast

I am sure this has been discussed many times but I like new idea.
I would love ideas for low calorie high protein breakfast ideas that are easy to log.
Thank you!

    My go to easy weekday breakfast is 1/2 banana, 1/2 cp old fashioned oatmeal, and to bump up protein I add a side of 1/2 cp 1% cottage cheese.

    It tracks as 300 cal and 18 grams protein.

    Keeps me full until lunch!

    I make egg white Frittatas sometimes on a Sunday. I'll use whatever veg I have on hand that need to be used before they go bad, a little cheese, and liquid egg whites. They usually come in at +/- 130 cal per serving and +/-20g protein.

    I just have a generic veg Frittata recipe entered and log it as a good ballpark log entry. Sure there's marginal differences based on which veg you end up throwing in it, and which cheese, but not enough to matter to me.

    I often have some sliced turkey breast, or hard-boiled eggs supplemented with low-fat or fat-free Greek yogurt.

    How many cals, what's high protein to you, what do you like? With that information we could probably help you modify it to be high protein and low cal, as you define it.

    Are you able to eat foods that aren't conventionally thought of in our diet as "breakfast food" or would you prefer that the recs be "breakfasty"? ;) More often than not, I don't eat typical breakfast food, so that gives me a lot more options for high-protein/low cal meals.

    This. There is no reason you can't have a salad for breakfast or cereal for dinner unless it really bothers you. I am not saying you need to eat lettuce tacos every morning but ruling it out just because it is not conventional does not make sense to me. The worst is you try it for a few days and see what you thing.

    My suggestion chicken chili.

    I'm not a big breakfast person, as I prefer to save my calories for later in the day (I like my snacks), but in the interest of protein, I like to drink a carton of Chocolate Muscle Milkb (100 cal. 20 g. protein). I drink it over ice on my way to work.

    Very easy high protein breakfast: 1/2 Cup Oatmeal and 4 oz. - 6 oz. of egg whites mixed in.

    Prepare the oatmeal, then microwave the egg whites for 2:00 mins. in a small corning dish, add the egg whites directly in the oatmeal and chop up with a fork.

    I like a breakfast frittata. I use 6 whole eggs, 18 egg whites, turkey italian sausage, sweet potatoes and a variety of veggies. Once all veggies and the sausage are cooked, put them in a casserole with the egg mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. I have it saved as Brian’s 40/30/30 Turkey Breakfast Casserole. My recipe makes 6 servings and each serving has 390 calories, 39g protein, 28g of carbs and 14g of Fat. I built the recipe to be 40/30/30 compliant.

    Yes, this is important to know as what one person thinks of low cal / high protein may not be the same as another.
