Is there a reason your husband has decided to eat only fish? Do you mean that the only meat that he's eating is fish or is this his only protein source? There are lots of protein sources other than fish which are not meat. If he's eating fish every day, you might want to get him to talk to his doctor about this because there are some potential problems that he could come across and his doctor might want to give him guidelines about which fish to eat and about limiting consumption of certain types of fish.

There are lots of non-meat breakfast options that will provide plenty of protein (e.g. yogurt with granola, oatmeal made with milk instead of water and with a little peanut butter stirred in, etc.).

I'm with JENSTRESS in that I do smoothies every morning with a hemp protein powder. (If you read about whey and where it comes from-nasty...) Anyway, I work all 5 mornings out of the week, so I never have meat for breakfast during the week. Smoothies, then usually a hardboiled egg and some fruit mid morning. As others mentioned, there are many things...wheat toast and peanutbutter, oatmeal; just make sure to add protein. Protein is very important in the morning and there are many non-meat sources. Is he still eating eggs? Add some spinach and peppers, and smoked salmon as already mentioned is awesome with eggs. I don't really advocate eating fake meat products, but the Smart Bacon brand is pretty good.

If he isn't needing meat, I eat smoothies for breakfast, if I want to add protein, I eat a hardboiled egg. Sometimes on the weekends I will scramble an egg or two. You don't have to have meat with breakfast.

If he really wants meat, try a bagel with lox and cream cheese. Yum.

Curious... why has he decided to just eat fish?

As MISSRUTH pointed out there are many protein sources other than meat.

Anyways, try this recipe... absolutely amazing. I use egg whites and fresh salmon (broiled) in mine with sweet potatoes, asparagus and mushrooms or onions. I've also made it with crab flavoured pollock (although the sodium was a bit high for my liking). You can make it the night before and then just reheat it if you want.

Breakfast doesn't need to include meat per se. Has he given up eggs as well? Dairy? I eat cereal with raisins, plus yogurt (usually with berries) for breakfast. No meat of any kind. He could have oatmeal, or some kind of whole-grain muffins or toast, plus a glass of milk and a banana. Whole-grain pancakes or waffles with berries and milk or yogurt. I reckon it'd be up to him to decide what he wants to eat at breakfast, in keeping with his fish-only decision.

There are a bunch of protein sources that are not meat.
