You could use an almond, rice, hemp milk as an alternative. Make sure it is calcium and vitamin D fortified. These varieties do have less protein---but as long as you are meeting protein needs with other foods later in the day...it would not be an issue.

Protein roll-ups are great for good energy and "grab and go" in the morning. Use whatever turkey, chicken, or cheese and roll in lettuce. You can also add other veggies or use salsa as a condiment in these.

I love my whole wheat bagel with peanut butter (natural, so no sugar added)!
i do green smoothies, juices, and chia porridge. none of them use dairy. I am not intolerant, but I simply don't like the taste. I won't touch soy so I use almond milk that I usually make myself. My smoothies are sweetened by the fruit and i don't add sugar.

I prefer almond milk over soy, but that's a choice one makes for themselves.
Any leftovers from other meals can be eaten for breakfast. There's no rules that say it has to be the standard type.
If you have a good recipe for waffles or pancakes, you can make a batch and freeze them. Lots of things can be added to the batter, to change it up.
While this is still an eggs dish, I find I can really shake things up by making omelettes. I throw in spinach, or bacon bits, or turkey, or just about any veggie, add some fun seasonings, and VOILA: instant awesomeness and very easy to change it up. I'm also lactose-intolerant, and swear by the lactose-free milk from Wal-Mart--the great value brand, because I find Lactaid to be too sweet. I also make protein waffles--I throw in a fourth of a cup of oats, half a scoop of protein powder, two crushed walnuts, a sprinkle of cinnamon and salt, an egg, 1 tbsp of lactose-free milk, 1/4 tsp of baking powder, and a little water to help it go into solution--this is about 250 calories and has about 20 grams of protein. :) I also like cutting up half a fruit and adding it to breakfast--grapefruit, oranges, apples, or pineapples are my favorites (you can also do a smoothie, but I prefer to eat my fruit rather than drink them, personally). I (unfortunately) can't do Greek yogurt even with active cultures, because it KILLS MY STOMACH (stupid lactose), but you could also get some of the Lactaid cottage cheese and either food process it (it makes it into a sort of yogurt) or not and add a little fruit (I also like a touch of honey, but I see you want to cut out the sugar).

How about a European style continental breakfast...fruit salad and a "special" bread like honey whole wheat muffins with blueberries...or whole wheat waffles... (have you tried baking with Goat Milk?!--my sister's husband is Very Reactive to cow's milk, but goats milk is fine...?!! Go figure!! Also--Goat cheese is great-- a bit of a unique flavor) My niece can't eat eggs, and does the applesauce, or even mashed bananas for pancakes!! Those are great!
Or, just pick your favorite dinner leftovers---who said breakfast has to be limited to traditional foods?!! Enjoy! patti

A sandwich with a piece of ham, cheese, and an egg on a toasted whole wheat English muffin. Have you tried making your own granola recipes or just adding different fruits to oatmeal. I don't know if nutella works for you, but I love mixing it with peanut butter on toast.
Sorry I'm horrible at the dairy-free stuff. Good luck

Help! I need some good ideas for breakfast that are sugar free and dairy free (I'm intolerant). I do oats all the time, and toast with eggs, so I'd rather not go with any more eggy dishes. I'm getting tired of oats and toast, and need some creative help. Thanks!
