French toast with sugar-free syrup, Pancakes topped with fresh fruit. Muffins made with apple sauce instead of oil (small), Yogurt with grapenuts. Smoothies. Eggs and toast, vegetarian cheese substitute instead of REAL cheese. Cream cheese (or does that count as cheese?) or another spread and 1/2 bagel.

As someone before said, I like the idea of abandoning traditional breakfast ideas. Lately my favorite breakfast food has been peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! I also like leftovers from the night before for breakfast as long as they are healthy and I can fit them in to my calorie range.
KAYEMM3 - nice to see someone else who eats yogurt and eggs together - I thought I was the only one! I will make an omelette with some spicy peppers (jalapenos for example) and have a little cilantro and yogurt on the side. YUM! (I eat omelettes for dinner though, not breakfast.)
For breakfast I always eat a homemade oat bar. Oatmeal is a great idea. Eggs, waffles w/ berries, yogurt w/ honey, yogurt w/ fresh fruit, breakfast cereal, toast. Lots of options!
If you can get nutritional yeast, that's a dairy-free cheese alternative that a lot of vegans use. I put it on EVERYTHING. Otherwise, yogurt is a good replacement. I often put plain greek yogurt on my eggs with mixed greens.
coming from a non-dairy eater, none of my meals have cheese. i am big on smoothies, granola with nut milk, sometimes just a juice. I also don't eat whole grains, so I will choose a nut and chia seed porridge. But then as the PP said, there is no reason that you have to have the traditional breakfast foods. Have a salad or something else.

You're a better person than I - I very well might DIE if I gave up cheese!
With that said, I'm not a big cheese eater first thing in the morning. There's oatmeal, various meats/sausages, fruit, veggies, omeletes with endless possibilities... you can even abandon traditional breakfast ideas and eat other stuff.

For Lent, I've decided to give up cheese and pasta. That knocks out a bunch of food for 40 days and 40 nights, but the biggest daily impact it's had so far is breakfast! I usually would make quiches (which include cheese) or grab a Jimmy Dean Delight if I'm in a hurry... I don't just want to throw out the cheese! Any ideas on how to get a healthy, protein packed breakfast, where I won't miss the cheese?
