I have been doing greek yogurt that has fruit in it and a little bit of granola. About 175 calories, depending on what yogurt and granola you use. It is a little high in sugar but has some good carbs, calcium and protein.

Okay I'm getting sick of cereal with milk, oatmeal and eggs. Does anybody know any 200 calories breakfasts that would be good? Yes, I like to keep it at 200 because I'd much rather eat a big lunch during school to give me more energy there. My lunch and snacks during school range between 600-800 calories so I eat enough there but I need more breakfast ideas. Anyone?
I like thomas light multigrain english muffins (100 cal). They have 8 grams of fiber and keep me full for a while. I top it with fat free cream cheese (30 cal) and/or sugar free jelly (10 cal). OR sometimes I use the english muffin to make a lower calorie breakfast sandwhich with egg whites, fat free cheese and fat free ham.
I've recently fallen in love with these mini whole wheat pita pockets trader joe's sells (120 calories for 5). I like to put some of their horseradish hummus on the side (45 calories for 28 grams). The only thing about the low calorie content is that it sacrifices what I think is a good opportunity for a dose of healthy fats.
Usually that's more of a morning or afternoon snack, but I think it could make a nice breakfast too... and the hummus would taste lovely with a hardboiled eggwhite or three :3
If you're really pressed for time though, a serving of straight up peanut butter or plain nuts is oddly energizing... (190 calories and full of delicious fats). I've been through some really bad financial crunches where that was all I ended up with in my cabinets a few mornings.
I'll say it once, I'll say it a million times.... Roasted butternut squash & eggs!! YUM! :)
I get bored with the same foods too. Just remember; Breakfast = the first food you consume in a day. It does not have to be "breakfast" food. Try a baked potato, roasted veggies and deli meat, chef salad, left over steak and greens, etc. Good Luck!
Veggie omelettes. I usually make mine with two whole eggs and a few drops of olive oil and they're usually around 200-250 kcal.
