Any egg-free suggestions? My go-to is peanut butter on a whole wheat english muffin, or cream cheese on a whole wheat bagel but those are both pretty high-fat. I don't eat eggs (don't like them).

For something quick, I usually grab for some dairy product. Cheese, milk, kefir. They are really high in protein, and you can get lower fat options. There are a lot of breakfast cereals that are high in protein. Just read the labels. Eggs are a great source as well. Hard or soft boiled eggs also elimate the fat of frying.

some of my breakfasts:

protein powder in milk or water, sometimes adding a banana. I use a powdr. that has 20something gr of protein

1.5 egg omelet w veggies or at least salsa

nonbreakfast foods - usually bean salad or beans/brn rice/salsa

it's not very exciting, always, but I find that the less I have to think about food, the better.

If you go to www.askdrsears.com he has some breakfast ideas, and a morning shake/smoothie type of thing that I've made several times. Really yummy and a good amt of protein.

either home made yogurt with granola, or a yogurt smoothie (made with said yogurt) with a scoop of protein powder, and then i add fruit (fresh or frozen, depending on what's available), and sometimes a splash of milk or OJ. we also make popsicles out of this, and when i'm feeling lazy, the kids get to eat popsicles for breakfast

i love cottage cheese, but no one else in the house will eat it, so we don't buy it very often anymore i'm afraid. but it's great with some fresh fruit like cantalope or grapes or pineapple... i love eating a cantalope with cottage cheese because the only thing you dirty is the spoon

we do eat eggs a lot around here, and nut butters on toast or bagels or cut up apples. also the occasional BLTA (bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado) on whole wheat or multigrain toast.

if you make your own bread, you can use the cornell formula (or other protein boosting combo, like the super flour in the super baby food book) for your flour either to totally replace the flour or partially replace it, which adds more protein to any sandwiches and stuff like that you eat.

On my workout days I eat Greens Transitions protein shake with added yoghurt and berries and hemp oil. That is after my workout. Before my workout I eat 2 eggs and a peice of toast or sprouted english muffin. On my non workout days I eat oatmeal, 2 hours after my 2 eggs and 1 piece of toast.

There was a study done that compared women who ate 2 eggs every day with a slice of whole grain toast, and those that ate half a bagel with cream cheese and yoghurt each morning. The women who ate the eggs lost more body fat. None of them had elevated cholesterol.

Have your tried an egg burrito? Scramble 2 eggs and wrap them in a whole grain wrap with salsa and a sprinkle of cheese. You can dice up green peppers and zucchinni too.
