This may have already been asked somewhere on here, but does anyone know of anything that would be a good protein besides eggs for breakfast? Thanks so much!

Peanut butter on whole wheat toast! :)
Almost anything will do if you can accept the oddity of having left-over chili, etc, for breakfast. ;)
Sometimes I'll have a tuna sandwich. Or oatmeal plus a little handful of nuts.

I like the "fake-eggs" with chopped bell peppers, onion, mushrooms & tomatoes. It's actually really filling, and under 100 cal depending on how much "fake egg" you use. I can feel satisfied with only "one egg" worth if I add ww toast & pb, or fresh fruit on the side.

thanks for all the responses. Peanut butter on toast does sound good and feeling too. Oatmeal and nuts I'm not so sure about. I don't normally like oatmeal. I don't like the consistency or something..just seems sort of slimey..but maybe with nuts added it would be worth trying..thanks guys

There are so many different types of oatmeal, one of the varities which is a larger flake oat might be better. I love oatmeal but I don't like it slimey!

Ilene on Ladies who Lift has a great protein pancake recipe, which is all over the place on this site, I'll look for it, (when not sneaking on the internet at work :D) and post it.

I love cottage cheese mixed with finely chopped strawberries!

Or cottage cheese on wholewheat toast sprinkled with black pepper.

And my standby protein brekky is a smoothie made with whey protein powder, low fat milk, a banana and a few berries whizzed in the blender. Yum!

the cottage cheese sounds good with the pepper too. I bet it would be sort of tasty on a tomato as well perhaps. I make a shake too..but without the protein powder. That is a good idea to put the protein powder into the smoothie like that. I normally just put my strawberries and bannana and splenda with skim milk and a few cubes of ice. It makes a huge glass of smoothie. Also I used to have a chocolate smoothie when I got in the mood for chocolate using sugar free fat free pudding, skim milk, and ice. It's basically the same as pudding but put into more of a milkshake fashion. I bet the protein powder would go with the chocolate shake as well. I have seen the pancake recipe somewhere on here too but didn't take a good look at it, so I will do a search and find it easy enough. thanks

In that case you have to try oatmeal made from steel cut oats. Nothing compares to the texture or taste..

One of my favorites is cottage cheese and a slice of ham/canadian bacon on toast or english muffin, then I will put some green salsa on it.

Cottage cheese is a lovely and versatile food! It, ff yogurt and fruit. Yum, just like a forbidden dessert!

I eat breakfast at my desk at work, so I can't exactly scramble an egg there. And I can't eat nuts, so I've had to be creative in breakfast proteins. I usually have a piece of low fat string cheese. I also recently started adding Kashi Go Lean cereal (about .25 cup) to a container of FF yogurt to add even more protein.

I love peanut butter on dark wheat toast, sometimes with Smuckers 100% Fruit spread, and a banana! Yum! And filling

I use protein shakes to help get my protein in the mornings. Most of the one's I have had are disgusting, but I recently found one called Muscle Milk that tastes like a real milkshake, so I'm going to stick with that for now. I don't know of their website but I got it at Hi Health (health food store). I got all my information on them here:

Well if it does not fit in with your eating plan, then I guess it won't be on your list. :) Personally I do not "diet" but have just developed a healthful eating plan, and peanut butter (the natural kind without added sugar and junk) is very high in nutritional value. Yes, it is high in fat, but I think limited amounts of fats are part of a healthy eating plan. So people are often surprised that I say I eat certain things. :) Catch is... I eat very limited amounts of them and pile up high on the fruit and veggies. Although I have even been told I should not be eating fruit because of the sugar content but I consider that FAR different from refined sugars and junk.

We are all different and need to find what works for us and go with it. LOL to me chocolate is what I may as well apply directly to my hips; peanut butter is very filling and has lots of nutrients so I think it goes places on my body where it can be more beneficial LOL

That's so interesting, Pavellina... you don't eat it much in Europe? Peanut butter in North America is like the staff of life. :lol3:
Misti's right... most of the fat in peanut butter is "good fat", and it's a healthy choice compared to many other things. :yes:
As long as you don't eat an entire jar of it, like a girl in my forum did... :rofl:
