I have a high-protein breakfast which doesn't always include eggs. I have things like 3-bean salads, and tuna.

Oh, and another filling breakfast is steel cut oats (the quick-cooking variety) cooked in milk instead of water. You can pair that with a piece of fruit and it's also pretty filling.

I like one cup of fat-free Greek yogurt topped with 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup granola (or 1/4 cup, depending on the serving size of the cereal), and one packet Splenda. This definitely keeps me full until lunch.

I eat 2 oz protein (1 wedge laughing cow lite cheese (5/8oz) & and 1 3/8 oz lean deli meat) 100g grapes ( about 3 1/2 oz), 1/2 piece spelt toast with 1/2 serving almond butter. This gives me 15 g of protein under 300 calories for breakfast, and I stay full until lunch time.

aside from protein powder, I do like 1 cup of low fat cottage cheese mixed with 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce. Lots of protein super yummy

If I were super-serious about breakfast protein I would make a smoothie with fat-free Greek yogurt, peanut butter, chocolate protein powder, skim milk and a banana (or half a banana). I entered one into Spark's recipe calculator:

*Liberte Greek 0% Plain Yogurt, 125 gram(s) (remove)
*Kraft All Natural Peanut Butter, 1 tbsp (remove)
*365 Chocolate Whey Protein Powder, 1 serving (remove)
*Skim Milk, 0.5 cup (remove)
Banana, fresh, 0.5 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long) (remove)

This gives you 35 grams of protein in 366 calories. I'd add in some ice cubes too, and make it in a Magic Bullet blender so I could take it with me on the go.

Cottage cheese is one of the easiest when you need a boost of protein. It's good with pineapple or mandarin slices, and a few almonds for some crunch and healthy fat.

I've heard on this website of cottage cheese pancakes, so you might search for that. I haven't tried them myself.

Also, Canadian bacon is lean and basically pure protein.

I don't really think of my breakfast as high protein, but since quinoa has been mentioned many times on this thread, what I eat for breakfast every weekday is either quinoa or 50/50 quinoa and steel cut oats (their carb/fiber/protein is very similar) cold in the summer, or hot in the winter, with whatever type of fruit I want, some almond milk, and either a tablespoon of ground flax seed, or a few almonds. It's a great breakfast that keeps me going and clocks in around 270 calories. Sometimes I add in a lowfat string cheese to make it even heartier if I know I might not have time for lunch at my regular time.

One 6 oz. carton of Chobani has 15 grams of protein. One of my favorite breakfast protein sources.

A protein shake...the less caloric kind or a handfull of almonds in your oatmeal would do great things for your protein levels!

I will do steel cut oats with 1tbp of peanut butter mixed in to boost the protein.... Adding some milk to it is good too and adds more protein... Best way to cook oats is the slow cooker.... Could add a protein powder to the oats too for higher protein.

hard to beat peanut butter!

Although not a traditional breakfast, I love leftover black bean soup or lentil stew for breakfast, especially on cold mornings.

Apple slices with peanut butter or almond butter is yummy, too.

If you add a tablespoon of protein powder (I use Genisoy) to a cup of soy milk every morning to have with my cereal (usually Kashi GoLean). 8 grams of protein from the supplement, 7 grams of protein from the soy milk, and 13 grams of protein from the cereal... That's a total of 28 grams of protein from a breakfast without any eggs, and it has less than 250 calories :D

Crispy, crunchy and nutty, super tasty with a cup of coffee.

I am allergic to eggs, dairy, beans, almonds, peanuts and cayenne pepper - so for me, breakfasts cant include eggs, sausages, yogurt or a lentil sautee with spinach. One of my favorite breakfasts is to do a slice of sprouted rye bread with a bit of avocado spread on and some turkey meat (nitrate free) or smoked salmon. I basically make different kinds of open-faced sandwiches using this premise. Adding things like turkey bacon, or doing tuna on toast. I also like to eat a grapefruit with my breakfast. My breakfasts usually have at least 20 grams of protein.

Protein Bar

Protein powder mixed with skim milk and berries

Oatmeal, skim milk, and nuts

Fiber cereal with skim milk, blueberries and nuts

Bagel with peanut butter, melon, and nuts

If you don't like the whole egg you could always eat just the whites.

I add chia seeds to steel cut oatmeal, and often use greek yogurt instead of milk to smooth it out. Spices and fruit to taste. Sometimes a half scoop of whey protein too ... yummy, and healthy!

A new favorite: green smoothies, which look funny but taste wonderful. I'll usually add a scoop of protein powder to these, too.

Also, nothing says you have to stick with traditional breakfast fare in the morning :) It all depends on what you can digest in the morning.

Chicken sausage - Applegate farms makes a great spinach & feta kind, already cooked so you just need to heat it up.

The Kashi GoLean is really good, and the milk adds protein as well. I usually have a serving of that with a half cup of milk and a banana!

I have a bowl of old fashioned quaker oatmeal made with 1/2 milk, 1/2 water and mix in a tablespoon of natural almond butter (I LOVE almond butter so much more than peanut butter, but I used to do this with peanut butter before I discovered my beloved almond).

3/13/11 9:31 P

Kashi is selling a cereal that has as much protein as an egg. It's pretty good. Very crunchy.

3/13/11 8:12 P

Turkey breast, chicken breast.

3/13/11 8:05 P

I've heard hot quinoa mixed with fruit or pb (prepared like oatmeal) is yummy...I've never tried it, but I have a few friends who swear by it! That would be low carb and high protein.

3/13/11 7:30 P

I would try greek yogurt. The Chobani is my favorite brand but any of them have great amounts of protein in them.
String cheese is good and you can find low fat versions
Special K has a version called protein plus. It tastes good and has great protein.

have you thought about making a tofu scramble?

There are TONS of ways to make it, and it is something you can make ahead of time and pop in the microwave in the morning. It would keep for a few days in the fridge. Google recipies, there are lots available.

cottage cheese and fruit
greek yogurt and fruit
kashi crunch cereal
Vegan French Toast w/ sugar free maple syrup

You can also make a fried "egg" muffin using tofu. It actually doesn't taste to bad :)

Try beans! I've had hearty bean salads for breakfast many, many times. Also, try the yogurt pancakes on my blog. They're freezable and have a good amount of protein in them, and paired up with some fruit and perhaps more yogurt on the side, make a great power breakfast. Remember you don't have to have breakfast foods for breakfast! I often eat leftover chicken, beef, pork, or beans for breakfast along with my orange juice and fruit. It can keep longer through the day than most breakfast foods, which is important due to the sporadic nature of the breaks I get at my job and the long class length at school. You can use egg substitute for the eggs in the recipe, or try a dash of oil beaten in with a bit more yogurt. Good luck, and here's a link to the recipe.

I work in retail so I'm on my feet all day, I need a good power breakfast that will keep me going til lunch. However, I don't eat eggs, and every website, magazine, book revolves around eggs at breafast it seems. What are some good energy filled breakfast ideas?
