Any food you enjoy you can eat for breakfast. Many of the "traditional" breakfast foods are actually very recently 'traditional'.

My breakfast today? Roasted potatoes, turnips, beets, rutabaga, onion, garlic, and drizzled with olive oil and herbs (that I made last night), one egg, and a smoothie of milk, spinach, cucumber, and raspberries. That'll keep me till lunch, no problem!

Breakfast is my favorite meal, and I try to do something different everyday which is super possible. I range from eggs and bacon, to bagels, to protein bars, to fruit and yogurt, and i make it my biggest meal of the day, which means it is absolutely possible to have a giant omlett, bacon, ij and fuit all for under 500 calories,,:)

Eat a lunch or dinner portion for breakfast. I do that whenever I am sick and tired of the same thing for breakfast every day.

I like to make mini spinach quiches ahead of time and put them in fridge. Easy to grab and heat and adds veg to breakfast. Protein in the egg helps too. Then I have a banana or other fruit. Whatever it is - I have to make it easy for mornings. So planning ahead is key.

You can eat whatever you want for breakfast! It's just habit that we have certain foods at certain times of day. How about a nice sandwich or salad for breakfast? Sounds weird? It's all fuel to your body. It can be hard to wrap our mind around it.

I plan on having oven roasted veggies for breakfast this morning. Yum!

I'm not big into oatmeal either, but have you tried refrigerator oats? It's really easy to make. You mix up all the ingredients the night before and pop it into the fridge. Then grab it and go the next morning. No need to heat it up. You can have a different flavor every day. Super easy and really yummy.

My go-to breakfast is (natural) peanut butter on a whole wheat bagel. It's delicious, quick and easy, and very filling!

I like to heat up a frozen veggie burger (chickpea my current favorite) in the toaster along with a high fiber English muffin and top with a tablespoon of mango chutney. High in protein and fiber so it sticks with me all morning.

I've also mixed leftover Thai food with grits - it was AWESOME! Red Thai curry chicken with spinach and real stone ground grits.

Sometimes I eat dinner/lunch leftovers for breakfast.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

you can make breakfast what YOU want - doesn't have to be 'breakfast foods'

toast whole grain bread (you can do one slice, then cut it in half to save some calories), spread with hummus, add some deli meat and fresh spinach

Greek yogurt with some fruit

apple or banana with peanut butter

sandwich thin with Canadian bacon and a slice of cheese (really good zapped for 10 or 15 seconds in the microwave)

scrambled eggs with sautéed spinach, zucchini, mushrooms, onions and some salsa

bake a sweet potato and eat with plain Greek yogurt (sounds a little odd, but it's actually good IMO)

sliced cheese and deli meat wrapped in a romaine leaf

My two personal favourite things to have for breakfast are Plain yogurt sweetened with a bit of honey, with half a banana, some berries and topped with a small bit of pumpkin or hemp granola.. and other times (I don't eat eggs but you can do this with eggs of course) I scramble tofu with red onion and a lot of spinach in a bit of olive oil. I stack that on some toast with dayla (vegan cheese) and salsa.

or you could always try smoothies as well since the variety can so wide from chocolate, fruit, green smoothies and the list goes on!

Such a great question...I am not "into" breakfast either but I do eat it every day.
I eat yogurt and fruit and sometimes break up a wasa bread into it.
I have gotten some fantastic suggestions from people here so I have tried to mix it up a bit by eating things like a piece (or 2) of whole grain bread with sliced tomato and avocado on it, or some protein like turkey or low fat ham and cheese on it or a combination of veggies and protein on whole grain bread.
Another one I like is omelettes....any combo of veggies and eggs or egg whites and you can even add some low fat cheese to give it a nice zing.
If you check out the posts where people answer "What did you have for breakfast" I think you will find some really creative and delicious options!
