A whole wheat English muffin with some pb and a Greek yogurt can hold me for a long time. Also love a good breakfast burrito with eggs, some black beans, a bit of shredded cheddar with salsa on a wheat tortilla. Piece of fruit on the side.
eggs- 6 grams of protein each; egg whites 3.6 grams of protein. (1/2 cup of egg whites- about 15 grams of protein and only about 75 calories). Cottage cheese (1/2 cup about 15 grams). Both are great supplements to a nutritious, sustaining breakfast. good luck!

Thanks for all the good ideas. If I do not plan my food -- I pick and graze and that sabatoges me. Hopefully, I will get to meet you along with some other members of the Akron team someday. Thanks again!
Here are a few of my breakfast stand-bys. I like to make enough steel cut oats that I can eat them for at least 4 breakfast meals. I usually add blueberries and a few chopped walnuts with it and then top with skim milk. The oats, milk, and walnuts all have protein.
A couple eggs scrambled with diced onion and green pepper. If I'm feeling decadent, I add a little cheese to it--reduced fat cheese if I have it.
I keep a box of Kashi cereal on hand for when I have no time for anything else. I buy the high fiber and protein kind and try to get one with the least amount of sugar. If possible, I add some blueberries or a banana to it and again use skim milk.
In the summer I make a smoothie from yogurt, juice (orange or any other kind), a banana, and any other fruit on hand. Strawberries and blueberries are great in a smoothie. If I'm trying to increase my calcium, I add some powdered milk to it (you can't taste it!). If I'm trying to increase my protein, I add some of the Bene-Protein I bought (also flavorless). Sometimes I add some flax seeds to it. Oh, and I add some chipped ice and blend it all up. Yummy!
Finally, some rushed mornings I'll eat a slice of whole wheat toast with natural peanut butter. I try to buy Ezekial bread or make my own bread in the bread maker. I won't eat the standard peanut butters because of the sugar and hydrogenated oil added to them. I used to add half a grapefruit to this breakfast but now I'm taking a statin so can't eat grapefruit. That makes me sad. If I have them, I might add a banana to the meal or have it later in the morning as my mid-morning snack.
