there's so many different routes you could go even if you knew you wanted to stick with eggs.

you could add marinara, italian seasoning, maybe a little italian chicken sausage for an italian twist

you could add a little taco seasoning, black beans, salsa and avocado for a mexican twist.

you could add garlic powder and various herbs for endless combiniations.

I eat eggs every day and never get bored just by switching it up a bit. Hope this helps!!

I make a Smoothie with yogurt and fruit 2 or 3 times a week and I also like a soft boiled egg on the other days or fruit and oats.

I eat 1 serving of Kashi Go Lean cereal, 3/4 c of 2% milk, and a hard-boiled egg every morning. This is 9 grams of fat, 41 grams of carbohydrates, 27grams of protein, 10 grams of fiber, and 315 calories. That's a lot to pack into just 315 calories, I think. The fat and protein and fiber keep me going for a long time.

Breakfast is an ideal time for legumes, because they're filling and you have all day to digest them, so you're less likely to have the stereotypical digestive issues.

I also like soup for breakfast. It might sound weird to Americans, but it's extremely common in other parts of the world.

How about trying something non-breakfast food? Leftovers from last night's dinner? A half serving of whatever you might eat for lunch?

Sometimes for me it's the idea of breakfast food only for breakfast that gets me into a rut.

I find oatmeal very filling, but it depends on the person. My sister finds she is hungry not long after eating it, but what fills her at breakfast leaves ME feeling starving - LOL! I don't do too well on a high protein breakfast, and in fact, that is my lowest protein meal of the day.

Have you thought about a wholegrain couscous, putting chopped dates into the milk before heating (sweetens the milk and softens the dates) then adding to the couscous, and perhaps some Almond Meal and sprinkle of ground cinnamon with it, and have some Greek Yoghurt with a bit of fruit if wanted?

Baked Beans with a poached egg.

I do change the fruit. Yesterday, I had a small apple with my eggs. The day before, I had grapefruit.

The problem with oatmeal is that the serving size is so tiny. It doesn't even GET me full- so forget about it keeping me full.

Apples and peanut butter sounds AMAZING, but I can eat a LOT of peanut butter before I get full. Two tablespoons doesn't seem like very much, and it's pretty steep in WW points.

I'll admit, I do like chicken sausage for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I should get some at Costco.

I'm not exactly one to limit myself to breakfast foods for breakfast. I'll have eggs any time of day. Eggs just happen to be really quick and easy to make, and that's what I need in the morning. Otherwise, I won't eat anything.

Every weekend I do up Tofu scramble for breakfast/brunch with fresh veggies (onions, garlic, ginger, peppers, cucumber, zucchini, or what ever else is on hand - including mangos.

day to day breakfast tends to be pre made gluten free vegan multi berry muffins with coffee or quonia dun a variety of different ways (all under 15 minutes to make).

I usually have some nuts, almonds usually with some clementines and maybe a hard boiled egg or maybe some cheese. I do go outside of the box sometimes and have something that maybe isn't considered breakfasty, I think people might pigeonhole themselves sometimes by sticking to things that are traditionally for breakfast. I guess that an example for me is some deli turkey and cheese with some roasted garbanzo beans and an apple, not a normal breakfast but yummy and filling.

So mix it up. Have different fruit on the side.. Berries, melon, apples, tomato slices, avocados

Add veggies/meat directly to the eggs. Mushrooms, black olives, onions, peppers, ham, bacon, sausage.

All I do is cook the veggies/meat a bit ( in butter for me ), and then add the eggs, which need less time to cook. Maybe 2-3 minutes, then add eggs. My favorite is mushrooms, which heat quickly. peppers tend to stay crunchy. I don't use meat for breakfast, since it tends to be salty, and I eat so much for lunch and dinner, but you can.

A western omelette is just ham, onions, and green peppers. You can even sprinkle on an oz of cheese to add variety. With some raspberries, you have some carbs, and quite a bit of fiber. Or try slices of apple, with peanut butter.

Be creative, and you'll be surprised at the endless variety. I understand the feeling though, Most of the time I love eating the same food ( I'm weird ), but every so often, I just think " This again! ".

Another thought is, since fat/protein is why you are feeling full, you could have that oatmeal, but have some sausage, or 1/2 an avocado with it. It isn't carbs necessarily causing the hunger, but when you ONLY have carbs. Oatmeal, and a banana, may leave you hungry in 3 hours, but one serving of oatmeal, and 3 sausage links, may be fine, 1-2 times a week, to add variety. See what works for you.

I have the same thing for breakfast every day- an apple and two tablespoons of peanut butter. It keeps me full until lunch. Protein is what keeps me full the longest so it's my go-to.

I've been eating the same breakfast for the past few days, and it's starting to get old. Lately, my go-to breakfast has been 2 overeasy eggs over steamed greens (usually spinach, but I've also done a mixture of kale, spinach, and collard greens. I even used Spaghetti Squash once) and a side of fruit. Simple, quick, and filling.

But it's also getting a little boring.

I'm trying to find some ideas for breakfast that don't involve bread or oatmeal. I have nothing against bread, but I am a bit particular about the bread I eat, so I don't eat it often. Oatmeal certainly tastes good, but I don't find it filling.

The egg breakfast certainly keeps me full long enough, but I'm just tired of it. I go through at least a dozen eggs a week.

I do have fruit and yogurt once a week, but it doesn't keep me full as long as the eggs do.
