Breakfast burrito - whole wheat wrap, light cream cheese mixed with plain greek yogurt and dill, then add spinach and any veggies you want. Add eggs or cheese as desired. I sometime add a slice of ham or turkey and black beans.

when I'm not eating oatmeal for breakfast, I usually make a green smoothie. They're delicious, healthy, and keep me full until my next meal. This morning I made a smoothie with 2 cups of frozen spinach, assorted frozen fruits (mango, strawberries, melon), and water. I added 1 tbsp of agave nectar to sweeten it but if you dont have that you can add a banana and that will do the trick.

I make breakfast sandwichs a lot

Bagel thin, one egg & one egg white cooked, a slice of cheese, a slice of turkey bacon and a huge handful of spinach. Assemble and toss in microwave for 20 seconds to warm cheese and wilt spinach.

I throw spinach into a fruit smoothie

But also like others eat a lot of non-breakfast items for breakfast. Soups, casseroles, asian foods, etc

turkey or hummus sandwich with veggies (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, sprouts, etc...)

tuna veggie salad (tuna mixed with a little mayo, then shredded carrot or broccoli slaw, and sweet relish!) I eat this right out of a tupperware, but you could throw it in some bread or wrap it in a big piece of romaine.

veggie soup...I can eat soup just about any time of day :)

quiche (I know you said no eggs but I make mine with more veggies and the eggs just seem to be a binder) :)

How about a breakast taco....throw in what you want...eggs, refried beans, left over spaghetti noodles (yummy) what ever veggies you want, tomato,avacado, etc

...there are no rules....get fiber from the tacos ...helps keep me full all morning and 2 taco shells are only 100 caloires....add romaine as Romaine is better than iceberg as it contains Vitamins A, C, K, and various minerals ...I top mine off with Matchstick carrots

Add asparagus or brocolli to your eggs or egg whites..Green peppers, onions, spinach

I know this isnt veggies but maybe try
Cereals are high in sugar and sodium, so eat only shredded wheat, puffed rice or puffed wheat which has no sodium or salt or sugar, multi-grain cheerios (medium sugar intake of 6 grams) or Kashi 7 whole grain puffs (organic section $2.89 per box and eat with skim milk and berries to sweeten. Add those berries..any kind for fiber and they balance blood sugar so you stay full all morning.

Low sugar plain Fage 0% Yogurt ...add bluberries..they are filling and have great fiber...besides they help keep bacteria away.

Keep eating the Oatmeal...add 4 walnuts to protect your heart...berries for the fiber...they contain seven B vitamins, vitamin E, and nine minerals, including iron and calcium

Almost forgot...How about a V-8?

I will make homemade veggie burgers and eat them in the morning. You can make them how ever with beans, rice and/or oats and what ever veggies...good recipes on SP too. I will eat it with eggs or fruit or in a tortilla with veggies and spinach. I also love avocado or hummus toast plain or with veggies on top. I also go for cottage cheese with leftover roasted veggies from the night before.

Personally, I'm a big fan of doing either a chicken or salmon salad in the morning. I make it with lots of onions, celery, mushrooms, apples, and cucumbers and use an olive oil mayonnaise. Depending on whether I want the extra carbs or not, I either put it in a lettuce wrap, or in a whole-grain pita, or put it in a sandwich on oat bread. It gives me a nice start with protein, healthy fats, and veggies.

I like that I can make up the veggie base, and add whichever meat I have left over from the night before so that it's different every day. Depending on the meat, I sometimes add mustard, or honey, or blackstrap molasses just to change up the taste. It's also nice that I can heat it up when I'm feeling the need for something hot, or just grab it cold and go.

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. Please don't let fear stop you - cover your butt!

I would like some suggestions for breakfast vegetables....besides adding them to eggs. I usually eat either oatmeal or eggs in some form and I am tiring of that routine.
