On the weekends, I have a 1/4C of 1% cottage cheese with 15 grapes and a tsp of flax seed with a slice of whole wheat toast with 1 tsp of sugar free jelly and 1 tbsp smart balance and a glass of almond milk (366 calories)
I'm on the same page as the rest of you - I do find that the protein helps me stay full longer - so greek yogurt w either fruit or a little honey and cinnamon; baked oatmeal is awesome - I don't like the other kind but ate it because I knew I should, I bake muffins on weekends but generally reduce the oil or get rid of it all together by adding pumpkin or applesauce to replace; love a thin sandwich bread, slice of cheese and morningstar farms sausage patty; have reduced fat cheese and crackers some mornings too.
I try to mix it up a bit. At the weekend Quinoa made on rice or almond milk with a stick of cinnamon is really good especially this time of year. Sometimes I'll make up a batch of granola bars and have one of them with fruit or break one up and mix it with yogurt. Muesli with almond milk, fortified cereal with rice milk and chopped berries are handy if I'm in work and pushed for time. If I've made some homemade seed bread I might have it topped with hummus. Once you start to try different things you'll get more and more ideas for new healthy breakfasts.
I realllllly like this recipe I found on Pinterest. It was called Boatmeal---baked oatmeal and it was fabulous. Whenever I enter in the calories, they are under 300 and are VERY filling. Try searching it. This one girl blogs and has the recipes on her website. Love it! My favorites are the peanut butter chocolate one (which also makes a great lower calorie dessert) and the pumpkin pie one. Yummmmmy!
Baked sweet potato with cottage cheese, and even a few raisins or some chile paste, depending on your tastes Fruit salad with yogurt or cottage cheese Quinoa instead of oatmeal, with some blueberries, almonds and almond milk I've even had beans and broccoli for breakfast

I need lots of protein at my breakfast. I eat eggs in many forms but tire of that. Also do peanut butter and Greek yogurt.
Another form of protein I like is reduced fat cottage cheese with fruit. And who says we can't eat chicken or tacos or whatever works into our daily food plan!

I saw one the other day I want to try for breakfast/snack. They had cored an apple and then cut it into crossway slices and put a little peanut butter on the apple. That sounded really good.
Also, on mornings where I won't get to snack or I need a heartier breakfast, I'll toast a frozen whole wheat waffle and put a little light/whipped cream cheese on top. That can be taken on the go too.
There are some great recipes for muffins I keep meaning to bake on the weekends so I have an easy mobile breakfast. Muffins can often even be frozen so you can make a few batches ahead if so desired.

I like whole grain english muffin with peanut butter and jam on it. The other poster's idea of peanut butter with banana is a good one too.
You say you eat oatmeal, but have you tried baked oatmeal? There's lots of recipes floating around but it's basically just rolled oats with milk and then dumping in fruits and nuts and whatever else sounds good...basically a bit more "solid" version of regular oatmeal. You can even do it in a muffin pan for convenience.
Also, there's no rule that says you have to eat "breakfast foods" at breakfast.
You don't have to eat breakfast foods for breakfast. What are some of your favorites things? Why not eat that? For more traditional breakfast options, try:
Greek yogurt with fruit. Add some Greek yogurt ot your oatmeal for protein. Toast or an English muffin with peanut butter. Smoothie.
Do you not eat eggs, bacon and sausage for the taste or for other reasons? You could do vegetarian meat substitutes. moringstar Farms does an awesome maple "sausage" patty that's great in a breakfast sandwich.

Hello I'm trying to find new healthy breakfast ideas. I don't eat eggs, bacon or sausage. For now I eat a bowl of cereal or oatmeal every morning and its getting boring. Does anyone have any ideas? Also my blender broke and cant make any shakes.
