I would say Greek yogurt with fruit and nuts or a smoothie with protein powder. It might be easier for you to mix things up if you ate your grain serving in the morning...

Fruit and cottage cheese is my go to. When I mix cottage cheese and strawberries and put a little splenda on top it sometimes even tastes like cheesecake! Mmmm...

What about Greek yogurt with some sliced almonds and berries? Or you could have some canadian bacon with fruit?

Keep in mind that you don't have to eat breakfast foods for breakfast! There are many days where I really want a grilled cheese sandwich, soup, or rice and beans when I wake up... so I have it! As long as it's well-rounded and meeting your nutrition needs, it doesn't matter!

Thanks for the great tips, everyone. I'm definitely going to try the smoothie recipes. And I do need to think outside the box and try some things that aren't typical breakfast foods.

My doctor suggested that I only have 1 serving of grains a day because she thinks my diet is too high in bread and sugar. I'm also having hormone issues, I'm estrogen-dominant with low progesterone. My doctor thinks that lowering my carb intake and also losing weight will help also lower my estrogen.

Fruit is always a good choice. Special K is very tasty too.

I do a variation on the protein smoothie recommended by Jackie Warner:

3/4 to 1 cup frozen berries/fruit
a handful of organic greens (i.e. spinach)
1 scoop protein powder
1/2 scoop SuperFoods or SuperGreens powder
1/4 tsp glutamine powder
1 tsp Omega-3 fish oil
enough water to get it to the right consistency (my blender objects if there is not enough water)

This usually makes a very large, hearty smoothie for between 215-275 calories, depending on what kind of fruit (& how much). That's a bit low for AM calories, but generally I work out afterward and have a pretty good snack. If you want more calories, you could add more fruit or more protein powder, or you could mix it with milk instead of water.

What about smoked salmon (half price in my supermarket now that Christmas is gone and i freeze the surplus) with a small serving of rice or a potato that keep well in the fridge?

Eating should be pleasurable.

may i ask why she suggested only 1 serving of grains? not having eggs because you have a problem with them sounds like very sound medical advice to me, but not having grains because you have a problem with eggs sounds a little shaky and unfounded or at least out of left field.

if you really like eggy things for breakfast, perhaps use a tofu recipe replacement.
beyond that soups and stews make great breakfasts, as do last night's dinner leftovers.

-google first. ask questions later.

A smoothie made with your favorite can add some flax for added boost

also remember that you don't have to limit yourself to breakfast foods. Leftover dinner could become breakfast.

other ideas
-peanut butter with celery or carrot sticks
-lean lunch meat rolled up with a slice of cheese or two
- My mom used to like a rice cake spread with neufchatel cheese(less fat cream cheese) and a little strawberry jam.... or a rice cake with peanut butter on it
- fruit
-Rice cereals with milk(rice krispies, rice chex, etc)

I like to make hash with shreddded butternut squash or sweet potato. Throw in some chopped apple, onion and lean turkey sausage and it's pretty filling and a great breakfast option.

Hey there. I have made Dr Oz's shake before, and it is actually pretty tasty. But I wouldn't try it without the banana, it really needs the consistency. Or I have tried a bunch of varieties of Naked juice. There are no preservatives or additives. They are a little high in calories, but it is all from fruit. Hope this helps!

I usually use the whole banana, and then skip the honey.

The smoothies are a good idea. You could also try eating fruit, something like grape fruit with a little bit of sugar is really good.

Recent bloodwork showed that I have a high food sensitivity to eggs, so my doctor wants me off eggs for several months. She also suggested that I only have 1 serving of grains per day! emoticon I don't like cottage cheese or yogurt, but I could make smoothies with skim milk and add in protein. Does anyone have other ideas for a healthy breakfast with those restrictions? Thanks!
