I dont throw the yellow away, cuz I dont buy whole eggs. I buy just the whites lol


well, there was your first mistake


This. I mean, if the yolks had gluten or something I'd say okay, but the yolks are going to fill you up as opposed to the whites.


The whites fill me up fine.

Sorry... did not mean to sound threatening. If you like savory breakfasts I love to cook up some chicken in a little bit of whatever oil I can have (I don't know gluten-wise what that is for you) and package it up in my freezer so I can get some out whenever I like. It's protein-filled, a serving is ~115-120 cals and I can't get enough of it! Not huge on meat here... but chicken is my weakness. :)

You wasn't sounding threatening. I just didn't get the big deal with the eggs. It doesn't matter that I don't eat the yolk, the point was I'm tired of eggs. Thank u :) Chicken sounds like a good option!

Just tried a protein pancake tonight for dinner and it was pretty good and super filling. It was 1 whole egg, 2 egg whites, 1 scoop of protein powder, 1/4 cup of instant oatmeal and very little water. It makes one huge pancake. I don't like eggs very much but occasionally I'll have egg whites with a morning star sausage. Another favorite is the kashi go lean crunch cereal with unsweetened almond milk. Might also be able to try a breakfast burrito with veggies, meat, and cheese. Not to sound stupid, but not sure if any of these choices are gluten free.

High protein cereal? I like kashi golean, it is high protein and high fiber, both of which i never get enough of.
I also love plain greek yogurt with some granola

My best advice is to chuck your ideas of what "breakfast" foods are. You need to reach into your "lunch" or "dinner" worthy foods for some real high protein. I stick to meats in the morning (for the most part) like chicken and lean pork chops. Nice and simple and not heavy. I make extra the night before so I dont have to cook in the morning.

There are many recipes out there that use "breakfast" spices (such as cinnamon) that you could incorporate if you miss that. Also, you didn't mention if you are also doing low-carb. If not you could think about having grilled cheese for breakfast. Use good cheese and the protein count can go up high!

What about Steel Cut Oats with some blueberries and chopped nuts? I do this sometimes when I get tired of the egg white sandwiches I normally have. If you are thinking about tuna, one of my favorites is a tuna salad recipe I got from Biggest Loser. Put it on a bagel thin or sandwich thin with a slice of reduced fat cheese and broil it. Makes a really great tuna melt. I also will do a melt with deli ham instead of the tuna.

Mix it up - supper for breakfast. Leftovers are awesome.
Don't forget nuts.
Kashi cereal and granola bars have a LOT of protein and taste great, not like cardboard.

Btw, she eats egg whites because it has a great protein to calorie ratio. Nice protein, low calories and fat.


And I guess I'm saying eggs don't have that many calories to begin with and the whole egg has so much more nutritional value that eggs whites are akin to throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Also, fat doesn't make you fat. I thinks it's a wasted to eat just the whites and throw away the part of the egg with the most nutritional value.





I only eat egg whites because I have high cholesterol and the whole egg has alot of cholesterol in it.

The yolk has all the cholesterol in it. If you have cardiovascular disease, diabetes or a high low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad") blood cholesterol level, you should limit your dietary cholesterol to less than 200 mg a day.
One large egg has about 186 mg of cholesterol — all of which is found in the yolk. Therefore, if you eat an egg on a given day, it's important to limit other sources of cholesterol for the rest of that day. Consider substituting servings of vegetables for servings of meat, or avoid high-fat dairy products for that day.

If you like eggs but don't want the extra cholesterol, use only the egg whites. Egg whites contain no cholesterol. You may also use cholesterol-free egg substitutes, which are made with egg whites.

My current favorite, started with a new lifting routine, is proatmeal: oats, whey protein isolate, pb2, flax meal and nuts/fruit as macros allow.

I am a simple person. I eat the same things over and over. lol. My "high protein breakfast" is 3 whole eggs srambled with a little milk and cheese, 2-3 slices of bacon tore up and mixed in with my eggs (I also put salsa on my eggs but that's just my personal preference and doesn't add anything nutrition-wise) ... and a glass of milk. That's not exactly "high" protein but it is an extra 8 grams. I also eat a piece of toast usually.

Best breakfast ever. I also eat this meal for lunch and dinner sometimes too. LOL

I usually have plain greek yogurt with a packet of stevia for added sweetness. Then I add 1/4 cup of nuts or trail mix to it along with fresh blueberries. It's a tasty breakfast (and certainly feels more like dessert) that does pretty well on protein.

If that is not enough, you can still have a hard boiled egg with it. I find it satisfying with or without the egg though.

1 egg yolk has the amount of cholesterol to fill 5 days worth. So I agree with only whites, because even if I ate the yolk the whole time and lost all of the weight I could still die of a heart attack very easily with the yolks.

- Cottage Cheese
- Peanut butter (with something)
- Add plain protein powder to something solid like veggies
- Do 2 shakes a day? I do 3 and add solids.
- Chicken or fish. Some people like breakfast in the evening so why not swap it.

P.S. Go to a whole foods store to find gluten free protein cereal

My other alternative high protein breakfast options are Greek Yogurt (I like Fage best) with 1/2 c berries (I like raspberry best) and 2 Tbsp of Toasted Slivered Almonds

or Protein Shake with berries. I like Forza Chocolate that has 30g of protein, with 1 c almond milk, 1/2 c raspberries and 1 tsp Carlson Fish Oil.

I make omlettes with my eggs and put spinach, asparagus, kale, broccoli, tomato, canadian bacon, mini peppers, whatever sounds good to make my eggs different every time. I only have time to eat the omelettes on the weekends.

The whole 'cholesterol' thing has been done - trust me. The cholesterol in eggs is the least of your concerns and research has proven that it's not the cholesterol in eggs that causes high blood cholesterol. It's saturated fats that your liver converts into cholesterol.

a few ideas:

1.) two chicken sausages with wilted spinach and fresh tomato slices
2.) 2oz ham, cheese, high fiber/low cal english muffin sandwich
3.)overnight oatmeal (you take greek yogurt, berries and old fashioned oatmeal..mix it together and place in the fridge before going to bed.. and its delicious the next morning)

I don't eat whole eggs, because I dont want to lol I'm not a huge fan of the yellow. The white is pure protein. Point is: I'm tired of eggs :) So I dont want ANY eggs lol
OH! And I can't have gluten, so any bread product is pretty much out :(



Wife: Have you got anything without spam?
Waitress: Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it.
Wife: I don't want ANY spam!

Sorry, I know it's irrelevant, but you reminded me of the Monty Python spam sketch. :D

Basically any meat. Spice it up with some pico de gayo or mango salsa. I like doing this with Italian sausage or chicken breasts. Or maybe even a breakfast pizza with a cauliflower crust (really easy to make and tastes good) just add your favorite toppings :)

As for high protein options (note that we're not talking calorie content - and fats are just as important here as protein):

Cheeses (non-processed preferrably)
Yogurts
Eggs
Meat
Mushrooms (yes they are a good source of protein)

If you want a really nice tasting breakfast...

Slice of wholemeal toast with bacon, black pudding, and a poached egg on top. Serve with a healthy portion of beans.

Beans and grains together make a complete protein source (yes, beans on toast)
Eggs = protein
bacon = protein
black pudding = protein

Obviously if you don't like black pudding, remove as necessary.

Oh - and if you like chicken...

Take chicken breast (raw or thawed) - take mallet. Beat it to within an inch of its life or until it's really flat.

Grill one side, then the other, then top with whatever tasty toppings you like and grill once more.

Uber chicken parmo.

I eat high protein, low carb breakfasts every day. Feel free to add me if you like. My diary is open and I always like to see other peoples diaries for food ideas.

A few suggestions:

I add egg whites to my protein shakes.
I had steak for breakfast twice last week.
Turkey bacon is a good addition, but I try to keep my sodium down, so that is a treat just now and then.
I have made a flax meal type cereal with egg whites, salt free cottage cheese and pumpkin ( and cinnamon).
Cottage cheese plus tuna with some mrs dash.
