What about a non-nut butter on toast with a banana? I love sunbutter (made with sunflower seeds), and I think it's pretty comparable, nutritionally, to peanut butter:

I'm trying to get those same things in my breakfast, and for some reason, I'm not hungry for savory things first thing in the morning. So I've been eating a lot of Kashi Go Lean. One serving is 140 calories and gives you 10 grams of fiber and 13 grams of protein. I have it with 3/4 cup of 2% milk, which gives me 7 more grams of protein and 3 grams of fat, which --to me -- makes it taste good and makes it more filling. It seems to keep me from crashing later in the morning. You can add a cup of strawberries for even more fiber.

spinach omelet
egg white fruit smoothie
greek yogurt with fresh raspberries
mini broccoli quiche muffins

*note: Getting 8-10 whole veggie/fruits daily should always give you 100% plus daily fiber.

How about Baked Beans on Toast - a really good, dense wholegrain bread high in fibre, and if you check the labels you will find some also high in protein. Have a piece of fruit as well and you are doing really well with all bases.

A good protein snack is a hard boiled egg. If you do more than one, it will last 2-3 days. I wouldn't want to eat them any longer than that.

Other snack ideas are good crackers - high fibre, good protein, and low sodium and fats, - with cottage cheese and perhaps a slice or two of tomato, or pop a couple cherry tomatoes.

Make a smoothie using Greek yoghurt, berries and banana, and some low-fat milk. Lots of protein and fibre in there, too, and can be snacked on all day if need be. If you add some Oat Bran or Wheat Germ to it, you will also be increasing the fibre and other nutrients.

For breakfast I like to have an English Muffin with Eggs and Cheese. The Thomas brand makes ones that are 100 cals and high in fiber. Or I will have some Kashi cereal, it's high in fiber and has a decent amount of protein in it.

Hello all, I'm writing to ask for your snack and easy/quick breakfast ideas that have a good amount of protein and fiber. I'm trying to up my protein/fiber intake so that I stay full on the healthy stuff, and avoid succumbing to the temptation of super-sugary foods.

I do okay with getting protein and fiber in the lunch and dinner departments, but struggle with it when it comes to breakfast and snacks. I don't like to eat meat in the mornings. I'm also allergic to all nuts and nut products, which is a problem for me because the common non-meat recommendations I've seen for easy snacks and breakfasts include nut-filled trail mix and peanut butter on toast with a banana.

Any suggestions?
