I've been making this overnight oatmeal and there are a lot of other good ideas on there too<

I usually have 2 slices of bacon and scrambled eggs. To change it up when fresh veggies are ready in my garden I like to have fresh sliced tomatoes with salt and pepper and sliced cucumbers.

1 cup of milk, 1-2 cups of fresh spinach leaves, 1 cup of frozen or fresh fruit of your choice, and any extras like flax seeds or olive oil make a great smoothie in the morning, and great for 'on the go'.

Eggs with guacamole and spinach in a tortilla wrap is also a great grab-and-go breakfast. If it's the eggs you're tired of, substitute fish, beef, chicken, whatever.

Sometimes just a regular bowl of cereal in milk with some fruit or peanut butter just hits the spot. There's a great cereal called Mesa Sunrise (Natural Path brand) that is very tasty.

If you have more time in the morning, a stir fry over rice can be very filling. The veggies can be pre-cut the night before to save time, also.

I've been known to have vegetable or lentil soups for breakfast as well.

Of course, I've also been known to have chili, spaghetti, and hamburgers for breakfast. Pretty much, if I'll eat it at any other time of day, I'll eat it for breakfast, too. So take your favorite meal and just eat it for breakfast, see how that goes. :)

I like to eat lunch or dinner recipe for breakfast. It breaks up the monotony.

There's nothing that says you have to have breakfast food for breakfast - you can have anything you want for breakfast, heck, you can even have a salad or leftover chicken, etc. Anything goes in my book!

leftovers from other meals will work, as well.

Add chopped meat and veggies to your omelette/eggs

boil eggs and have a spinach salad

(also the other suggestions you've gotten)

I'm getting a little tired of my usual breakfasts, and I'm looking for some ideas to spice things up.

Typically, I rotate between an omelette with veggies and cheese (feta) or Chobani yogurt with fruit, chia seeds, ground flax seed and nuts, and (sometimes) oatmeal, but they're starting to get a little old, and I want something different tomorrow.

My best idea was a banana slices and almond butter on toast with a glass of milk, but I don't have banana or any nut butters.I also don't have any deli meats or good cheese for sandwiches.

I'm looking for ideas that are quick and easy. I do plan on pairing my breakfast with a cup of milk to see how well adding milk throughout my day helps me stay satisfied longer.
