In that boat I would choose eggs, greek yogurt, or a Nutritional Meal replacement shake, such as Vega One, Amazing Meal, Raw Meal, or one of the others (I don't mean 'diet shakes' that are full of crap) in some coconut milk (for the med chain fatty acids).

a 2 egg omelette. Use butter to up the calories, and just whip some vegetables into 2 whole eggs, then pour in pan and cook. Quick, and not chewy, while being high calorie. I like mushrooms, and with a pat of butter, we are talking about 275 calories average.

I had bell peppers today. 1/4 cup of red, yellow, and orange mixed. Of course, I eat 4-5 eggs , but the idea is the same.

I don't eat grains of any kind so I have to be creative for breakfast as well. I usually eat eggs every day. I sautee different vegetables and use 2 whole eggs and additional egg whites with almond milk and make scrambled eggs. I make them the night before, slightly undercook them and put them in tupperware. I reheat at work and the almond milk keeps them from drying out. Delish. I put salsa on top of my eggs and usually have a side of blueberries. If I don't have that I eat an apple with almond butter.

Peanutbutter. 2 tablespoons are dense in calories, fat and some protein.

Look up the "one minute flax muffin" I have that quite often. It is so good and very very healthy.

Full fat yogurt with granola can pack some calories, but can still be healthy

I make a breakfast dessert with fat free cottage cheese peaches pineapple or strawberries you pick which fruit and I add a little sugar free chocolate syrup and sugar free caramel syrup. I layer this in container.

How about greek yogurt with fresh fruit (I do bananas, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, just about any kind of fruit you like)? Also, string cheese or other lowfat cheeses. I keep cheese sticks for breakfast and/or healthy snacks at work in the fridge.

Hope this helps! Best to you!

Oh thank you for the suggestion about the mini egg muffins, that sounds like a great idea! I looked and found a couple of promising recipes to try!

There are lots of recipes for mini egg muffins out there. They basically Combine eggs, spinach(frozen, thawed and all liquid squeezed out), low fat shredded cheese, chopped onion. You bake in mini muffin tin I've seen some recipes with turkey bacon or sausage, you could use any veggie, any cheese really. Look at several recipes and come up with the mx for your taste buds... And good luck!

Recently I had Nissen Fundoplication surgery (for acid reflux) and right now I can eat no bread (we aren't just talking wheat, we are talking any kind of grain). I also can only eat tiny meals (about a half cup at a time) so I need to up the calories for each of the meals that I do have. I am looking for ideas or suggestions for breakfast food. I get tired of the same things every day. I can't have pancakes, tortillas, English muffins, bagels or anything like that. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions! Fast/easy/portable are desired! Oh, and the food must be very easy to chew because I have to chew my food to a liquid (no steak, no caramels)!
