Creative breakfast WITHOUT eggs
Hi everyone! I'm looking for food suggestions and/or recipes. I like having decent amount of protein at breakfast because it keeps me full until my next meal, but I can't tolerate eggs or egg protein. Any suggestions?
english muffin with lunch meat & cheese or cream cheese
cereal and some yogurt with protein
BLT's! Or fry some bologna, or bologna-styled turkey slices. I use reduced fat/fat free bologna/turkey/bacon and they're awesome.
Cottage cheese is good if you don't mind the taste. I like it on a baked/microwaved potato.
A smoothie made from nonfat or lowfat milk and banana with a bit of honey or sugar.
Nut butter on a piece of wholegrain toast.
Baked beans on toast - yum!
Almost every morning I have 3 lite sausage links (120 cals, 10 g Protein), 1 yogurt w/ 2 tbsp flaxseed (140 cals, I think 9 g protein) and a fruit (usually about 75 cals). So for less than 350 cals I am full for a while, it's really quick and easy too!
I hate eggs in the morning too, they always make me sick. I like eating most of my carbs for the day at breakfast. So i suggest oatmeal, cereals (high fiber, whole grain), english muffins, 1/2 a bagel with either FF creme cheese or a table spoon of peanut butter, or plain butter (smart balance light is excellent). or if you have a trader joe's near by i highly suggest their organic high fiber blueberry muffins! their great! Also, any kind of fruit or yogurt.
Whole grain toast with nut butter and molasses
yogurt and fruit with granola
hot cereal or oatmeal with raisins
polenta with sauteed veggies and fake or real sausage
english muffin with fake or real sausage patty and lettuce
Banana, peanut butter and milk.
Or get creative with an English muffin sandwich made of peanut butter and banana slices. ^^
I like to have a couple of low fat waffles with sugar free syrup. Usually have that with 3 strips of bacon.
Quaker makes "weight control" oatmeal with added protein. Maple and Brown Sugar is best...it doesn't have too much sugar (maybe 3 or 4 grams), but it has 9 grams of protein and only 160 calories. I usually have that and a piece of fruit.
Try lunch meat or some canned tuna for protein. Or cottage cheese or peanut butter works great with most 'breakfast foods'
English muffins, oatmeal, cereal are all great choices with cottage cheese, nut butters, and dried/whole fruits.
Try, instead of oatmeal, quinoa - hot with maple syrup and fruit.
Quinoa is the highest protein grain.
hkd-Where do you buy quinoa and what is it like?
If I am not feeling eggs I will make a smoothie and a sandwich for breakfast, or oatmeal. My mother in law doesn't eat any breakfast foods, she always makes leftovers or burgers or whatever for breaskfast.
Veggie Burgers, baked til crispy, wrapped up in a low carb tortilla or Flat Out wrap with feta cheese and hummus, lettuce, tomato. I eat this nearly every single morning for breakfast. Very filling, loaded with protein, <400 calories, lowish carbs and low fat.
almareal--great idea putting the molasses on the toast with the nut butter. I always have toast with almond butter, sometimes with banana slices, sometimes with vegemite. I was trying to thing of an alternative, I'll give the molasses a try, it sounds delicious :P
Oatmeal with protein powder mixed in! Yum!
Lox on a bagle
Mine this morning:
2 Kashi waffles with s/f syrup
Small Canadian (low fat) bacon rounds (15 cals per slice) with low-cal, high fiber toast (the 35 cal bread slices)... Alternate with veggie (boca) sausage patties (fiber and protein). Try a scooped out whole wheat bagel half, stuffed with the aforementioned or honey (addressing what sort of syrup I use on pancakes. Alternate to this type of breakfast, do a (I use Kashi Go Lean crunch) half cup of cereal with as little milk as possible - this cereal is almost like 'caramel corn' so it is really not bad at all 'somewhat' dry - and a half cup of blackberries, raspberries or blueberries - all with fiber and antioxidants. A favorite here a home are 4 inch buckwheat pancakes with a very thin layer of grapefruit (or lemon or lime) marmalade or honey. The honey brings a nice sweetness to the buckwheat with minimal calories. Even better, I used lavender-infused honey.
breakfast is my life, all day long I eat breakfast fooods!!
- cottage cheese and an orange
- cereal and yogurt
- banana with yogurt, dry oatmeal on top and fresh fruit
- plain yogurt with coco powder and fresh fruit
- peanut butter and jam sandwhich grilled/fried in a pan
- baked apple with brown sugar and cinnamon
- grapefruit with sugar and an english muffin with maple syrup
I too like to have high-protein breakfasts. I have gotten my breakfast protein from the following non-egg sources:
cottage cheese (10g in a 4-oz cup)
cereal (3-7g depending on cereal)
weight control oatmeal (7g)
protein bar (10 g for half a bar)
low-fat turkey hot dog (5g)
peanut butter (8g/2 tbsp)
