I'm not an egg for breakfast type of person either. Some ways I include protein at breakfast include: * porridge/oatmeal made with rolled oats/multigrain mix, cooked in 1/2 water and 1/2 low-fat milk ( I use regular milk, but other milk options are lactose-free dairy, soy, rice, almond etc), with a few Tb of wheat germ, fresh fruit, a Tb of chopped walnuts and a Tb or 2 of low-fat greek yoghurt * And foods like low sodium baked beans, canned tuna or sardines in spring water , etc
1 tbsp natural peanut butter 1 oz silken tofu 1/2 cup chocolate almond milk/soy milk/rice milk/whatever 1 banana 1 scoop all natural whey protein
I have this for breakfast most mornings and it keeps me full a good, long time. You can play with it - replace the tofu with yogurt, for example.
Why no milk, out of curiosity? Are you lactose intolerant? Your wording sounded like you can't have it because your doctor said no processed foods, but milk isn't really a processed food... And what exactly does "no processed foods" mean? Unless you're eating nothing but fresh produce and organic meats, pretty much everything is processed in some way these days...
I don't like to eat eggs as they often give me problems. I am trying to keep peanut butter out of the house as my hubby and I devour it. (lack of discipline). I don't eat cheese. I can do yogurt once a week. So what's left for protein for breakfast?
