    You don't have to limit yourself to 'breakfast food'. You can eat anything healthy for breakfast - Yesterday I made two little 'pizza's' out of 2 pieces of Wasa whole grain crisp bread with cherry tomatoes, green onions, shredded provolone, salt and pepper - then into the toaster oven. Low cal, well rounded.

    nothing wrong with a good cereal
    i have weetabix or something "wholegrain".
    some whole grain toast and some natural yoghurt with fruit.
    or even some boiled eggs and wholegrain toast.

    :] mix and match and just enjoy it , eating should never be a chore!.

    I eat breakfast burritos. Egg whites, pprjack cheese, bacon, and a flour tortilla. It sounds way worse than it is, it is about 300 calories. If I have time, I add red peppers and onions.

    cook the bacon ahead of time, put the egg whites in the micro and it is done in less than 5 minutes!

    I make breakfast sandwiches.

    Saute spinach, onion, green pepper, etc. 1/4 cup egg whites on a whole grain english muffin with laughing cow cheese. Yummy!

    I eat Jimmy Dean D-Lites or store brand similar products (High in protein and fiber). The best breakfast is to eat something high in fiber and protein for breakfast to kick-start your metabolism.

    I eat oatmeal and a FIBER ONE fiber bar during the week and 2 eggs and whole wheat toast on the weekends. Seems to fill me up until lunch.

    Whole wheat toast with natural PB and banana slices on top
    Three-egg omelette with veggies
    Greek yogurt with fruit and a natural granola bar (I like Kashi brand)
    Egg sandwich - "fried" egg, slice of natural cheese and mustard between two pieces of whole wheat toast

    I noticed you mentioned egg whites... don't be afraid to eat the whole egg! Contrary to popular diet beliefs, egg yolks are actually very good for you in moderation! And they'll keep you feeling more full :)

    That's right...greek yogurt is high in protein. I love this idea.

    My favorite breakfast: 1/2 cup blueberries fresh or frozen ( If they are frozen. nuke them for 45 seconds) stirred with 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese and 1/4 cup of some really GOOD yogurt with real fat I like vanilla. The yogurt should not be low fat or fake sugar. By suing 1/4 cup of the good stuff everything tastes good and it's under 300 calories. And it's enough volume to fill me up. Substitute other fruits at random! Enjoy. Q

    I've been blending a frozen banana (note, peel *before* freezing...yeah, I overlooked that detail) with 1 cup of almond milk and 2 TBSP natural peanut butter. It's 360 calories for the whole batch, but I split it with my son, so 180 calories and I stay full for 2-3 hours.

    I also make a breakfast sandwich. 1 whole wheat english muffin, 1/4 cup egg white, 2 pieces of carl budding honey ham, 1 tbsp light cream cheese. I accompany it with 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I think it's around 250 calories total with about 15g protein. Delicious and filling!
