Fresh fruit salad(any kinds u like) with a little yogurt and a little granola on top is my fave. Also, there is wonderfully flavored oatmeals you could try with fruit. Can u tell I love fruit?!?!

Some days, I just don't feel like breakfast foods. Today, for example, I toasted up an english muffin with pizza sauce, some reduced fat cheese, and a few slices of turkey - bingo, breakfast pizza. Leftovers work for breakfast, as does anything, really, that sounds good and fits in your plan.

I had a Taco for breakfast. No one said you couldn't eat dinner for breakfast!

Whole wheat pita, with a laughing cow cheese, lean ground beef, lettuce and hot sauce.
It was fantastic!

Yesterday I had an egg white sandwich with turkey bacon.

The morning before that I had a veggie burger.

There is no rule saying you need to eat breakfast foods for breakfast. Just eat what you like and is on your diet.

Want something more specific? Try the site www.allrecipes.com you can type in the ingredients you want, and it will search through it's database. You will have to weed out the "bad for you" recipes.

I like to see how many vegetables I can get into breakfast. Sometimes a baked potato topped with veggies sauteed in olive oil -- lately onions, garlic, roasted eggplant (usually leftover from the night before), roasted zucchini (ditto), tomato, basil, salt, and pepper. Or I might cube and roast the potato and throw it in with the eggplant for a potato hash.

My other current breakfast is yogurt cheese sweetened with honey and cinnamon and topped with granola. Plus fruit.

Not sure which diet you are on....so these things may not apply to you.

I do a breakfast drink the days I can't stomach another egg, or I am short on time. I use a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of LF cottage cheese, a low sugar hot cocoa mix---I eyeball it, several Tbsp, one packet of splenda, 1 cup cold water, and a dash of vanilla and cinnamon.

I put the water and cottage cheese in the blender and pulse until smooth. Then I add the dry ingredients and whip for a few seconds. Then I add 6-8 ice cubes, and crush on the smoothie setting on my blender. This makes about 24 ounces once whipped up fully. It is filling, but if I feel I need a little more, I put in a very small about of natural low sugar peanut butter.

Good luck!

I've taken to having oatmeal with a few dried cranberries, a bit of splenda and some cinnamon in the mornings, keeps me filled until snack time and only takes a few minutes to cook up.

A lot of mornings I take a ww tortilla, ff refries, a little cheese and some salsa, breakfast burrito. Some days I eat a tuna sandwich, sometimes a turkey sandwich.

I eat a more traditional bkfst on weekends.

Whatever trips my trigger.

My son doesn't always want breakfast food in the morning and he often eats the leftovers from supper the night before such as soup, stew, pizza, hash (vegetables), veggie burgers, or anything he sees. If you enjoyed it the night before, you'll enjoy it the next morning.

Some times I get on a fruit kick, I want only fruit for breakfast, smoothies, fruit salads I make, etc. Other times I want something more wholesome like oatmeal (I do the steel cut oats, I make it in a batch for a few days), which is lovely. It takes longer to prepare, but doing it in a batch works fine. Sometimes I eat salads with loads of dark leafy greens.

It depends on my moods...
