Have you tried the lactose free milk it is good and does not give me gas or sick stomach. The fat free seems rich tasting to me.

Formula1 shake with protein powder and strawberries, it taste great and keeps you feeling full until lunch time.

Steam up a whole lot of veggies, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, zucchini, etc. and toss in a pan, brown a bit, add egg whites, flaxmeal, garlic, and enjoy that, keeps you full, gives you at least 4 veggie servings right off the bat. If you must have cereal, have some scrambled eggs on another plate with it. Give it a try.

I would give the rest of the cereal to a neighbor/family member/garbage and have something along the lines of the following:

veggie omelet
mini quiche muffins
green smoothie (my number 1 choice)
leftover meat and/or veggies from dinner
hard boiled egg(s)
cottage cheese

I keep boiled eggs in the fridge at all times. They're quick and easy to eat alongside whatever breakfast you choose. I prefer oats with fruit in the morning, but eggs could add more protein.

I have greek yogurt almost daily. I just didn't get to the grocery store to buy any yet this week.

The cheesy broccoli thing sounds good, but not with cereal haha. I'm trying to shift my focus to increasing protein with a classic bowl of cereal and milk.

And, I actually prefer the taste of almond milk over soy (I can't drink cow's milk). I pretty much just reserve soy to the occasional cup of coffee.

Egg white omelet. Add onions, etc. Salsa is also good on them.

Cottage cheese has quite a bit of protein. Also try Greek yogurt as it has 2x protein than other yogurt.

I really enjoy oatmeal with peanut or almond butter mixed in. Excellent combination!

I would skip the agave regardless of any other needs.

It hits your body faster than refined table sugar, just because its touted as a natural option doesn't mean its ANY good for you, its really really not.

I would suggest having your cereal over yogurt, or pinapple/berry sweetened cottage cheese

I enjoy a can of sardines (in water) for breakfast. Very tasty with lots of protein and good fats. Yummy!

if you want something protein rich, you need to ditch the almond milk. it's great for adding liquid, it tastes good and is low in calories, but it's also low in protein [i don't think i've seen higher than 2 g per cup and most are 1g]. so if protein is your focus, you need to stick to cow or soy as i don't think hemp, hazelnut, rice or coconut are on par with the aforementioned two. and i know that's not something you can do right this second, but if protein is a focus of your white liquids, you need to spend some time reading labels to make sure what you're buying is fitting that need.

how to you feel about cheesy steamed broccoli? depending on if you go frozen, that's about 50 cals and 5 g protein for the broccoli alone [a cup]. then the cheese with vary depending on if you're doing a laughing cow, babybel, slice or kind, but you should be able to find something in the 50-100 cal range with close to another 5 g protein. which would be almost 10 g protein for 100-150 cals. adding an egg would add another 70 cals and 5 g protein. and you could also add a wrap/lavash/tortilla for a few more grams of protein and no more than 100 cals.

I don't have that problem with the original Kashi GoLean cereal

Also, has everyone not seen this thread about Kashi Go Lean? I avoid it like the plague!

What do you have on hand? I was going to suggest mixing your cereal with greek yogurt but I see you don't have any.

I personally like to have protein shakes for breakfast. I have never been a big breakfast person, and don't actually like many breakfast foods. Plus it's something super quick for me to make in the morning after getting my kids ready, and then I can just drink it on my way to work. Maybe you could add one to your meal.

Two slices of Silver Hills Bakery bread topped with margarine and 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter on each slice would get you about twenty grams of protein for 350 calories or so. Most supermarkets today carry a whole-grain bread that, due to its blend of grains and possibly seeds, contains a lot of protein in each slice.

I prefer to cook on the weekends. I just saw this recipe today:
. I would probably eat six for breakfast, giving me 300 calories and 18 grams of protein. You could easily replace the two eggs with 1/2 cup of egg whites to lower the fat further and add more protein. You could also make them in regular muffin cups (I'm estimating that two regular muffins would equal six mini muffins.)

I'm trying to think of some ideas to add more protein to my breakfasts. I wanted to have shredded wheat 'n bran cereal for breakfast...with unsweetened almond milk and agave.

It only has 7 grams of protein though for 300 calories. Any ideas to raise the protein? I'm considering cutting the agave out and slashing the portion size in half and mixing it with some Kashi GoLean cereal, but I'd like other options.

I don't have any greek yogurt on hand right now.
