I was drinking coffee every morning until I switched it out for a super nutrient protein shake . Then I eat a good lunch usually consisting of eggs or yogurt . I find the morning is a good time to replace a meal for me because I was doing that anyways when I drank coffee . Horrible stuff . I have lost 14lbs since November when I started !

Quick Quaker oats with raisins and a little Splenda. 273 calories, lots of taste and texture, sweet, and good cholesterol and sodium. Takes less than three minutes to make. I put the raisins, water and Splenda in a small pot the night before and the raising swell up by the time I cook. I have been eating the same now for eight months daily and really look forward to breakfast!

I usually have 3 to 5 cups of strong, dark roast coffee (black) along with a piece of cake - often topped with lemon or strawberry curd.
The cake is either spice cake, chocolate cake, carrot cake, or pumpkin pie - using lentils and chickpeas or red kidney beans for the "flour" and sweetened with strawberries, or honeydew, or oranges, or bananas (or some combination of those). It is around 300-350 calories (depending on if I choose to add avocado or almonds for some extra fats), with 22-25g of protein, 14-16g of fibre, and at least 18% of all vitamins and minerals (most of them closer to 50%). It includes a full serving of fruit (2 for the pumpkin pie or carrot cake), along with another full serving of pulses (which some count as a vegetable).
There is no reason at all not to have cake for breakfast!
Coffee and 2 egg omelet with a small amount of cheese, fresh Broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and onions. Sometimes I will have a Quorn (vegetarian) sausage on the side.
Coffee-Oatmeal with a splash of soy or almond milk, a small pat of butter, a pinch of salt, blueberries, walnuts, and stevia
Coffee-Oatmeal with just a pat of butter and a pinch of salt.
Coffee-2 eggs over medium with a slice of whole grain toast and half a banana or Apple.
Coffee- eggs in a bed. I spray a muffin pan and tear whole grain bread to fit at the bottom of each cup. On top of that I add cheese, crack one egg over that, add a drop of cream, salt, pepper, thyme, tarragon, and parsley. Cook in the oven at 350* until cooked through. I eat two of those as which still accounts for less than a full serving of cheese or bread, but feels satisfying.
Sometimes I will have a whole wheat English muffin with a poached egg and some cheese with a half serving of fruit.
Those are the most common ones in our home. The are some others, but these we use the most!

Still working and am fortunate to ride a commuter train that allows food. So breakfast is packed -- 1 cup of coffee, 2 hard-boiled egg whites (hate the yolks), 1 sandwich made with crispbread and cream cheese. If I'm still hungry, I'll have my yogurt snack with seeds.

What I normally eat is a bowl of rolled oats with organic bananas and either blueberries or whole organic peanut butter, depending on what I want to eat on a given morning. I've been experimenting lately with cooking the oats, as I've read that that's better for one's digestion.
I find this breakfast is very easy to automate and is quite healthy as well.
Lately I've been having cottage cheese and peaches. When the weather gets warmer I like a Nutribullet smoothie. A whole day of freggies in a glass! And of course, Irish oats with blueberries is wonderful in the winter.

I try to switch it up between cereal (cheerios w/Almond Breeze milk), an omelet (eggs, onions & cheese) or a fruit smoothie (assorted fruits with Almond Breeze milk and honey for sweetener). It keeps me from getting bored with my morning meal.
A mediweightloss bar, or a hard boiled egg and 3 pieces of turkey bacon (I buy the Hormel already cooked and then nuke it for 1 minute) extra crispy that way. Or a shake made from 4 oz almond milk (the kind that is not from the frig - 40 cal), 1/2 cup frozen organic berries (they have the least sugar content) and a scoop of protein powder (prefer banana flavor).

Usually for breakfast, i'll try to stay away from cereal due to the high amounts of carbs. I'll try to eat protein to keep me full. Either hard boiled eggs or scrambled eggs with 1 slice of toast. I'll vary it and eat string cheese or some type of nuts.
I vary what I have. Today was oat groats, almonds and craisins with cinnamon. Regular rolled oats don't stay with me so I don't eat them but the oat groats do. I read that whole grains should be soaked to avoid gastric upset so I brought them to a boil for 2 minutes, let soak in overnight in fridge then cooked for 20 minutes this morning. Really good, the craisins swelled and added sweetness. The almonds added protein.
The journey is as important as the goal.

Ive been trying to join the eat the same thing every day, so there basically isn't a thought process before this early morning feeding. Right now I am following a juice only plan and do have the same thing in the morning and when I transition to chewable foods, I'm going to try the same thing, every morning plan.
I do love a turkey bacon BLT wrapped in a huge lettuce leaf instead of bread or cold oatmeal with fruit that I make and put in fridge the night before.

I am new as well. I'm three days into this and it's work. For breakfast I eat different meals most days. Hot or cold cereals, omelettes with whole eggs, sometimes just egg whites, boiled eggs, left overs, etc.... Usually I eat something and a cup or two of black coffee with a slice of toast.
