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)


Chicken sausage sounds interesting, but is it processed? And does taste anything like pork sausage (I don't like tht).

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


LOL Probably because I said I was tired of eggs in the original post & yet people still keep bringing them up :|

Going back to the link I posted earlier, I made this yesterday and I'm going to eat it throughout the week:

PALEO TEX-MEX BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

Ingredients
• 1lb Grass fed Ground Beef
• 2 sweet potatoes, shredded
• 1 small yellow onion, diced
• 6 eggs, whisked
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 tablespoon bacon fat (or other fat)
• 1 (14oz) can of El Pato Enchilada Sauce or homemade
• 1 teaspoon chili powder
• 1/2 teaspoon cumin
• 1/2 teaspoon oregano
• salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Pull out a large skillet or oven proof cooking dish. (aka cast iron skillet, etc)
3. Place skillet over medium heat, add a tablespoon of fat then add your minced garlic and diced onion.
4. When onion just begins to soften, add your ground beef and use a spoon or spatula to break it up and combine with onion.
5. Now use your shredding attachment on your food processor to shred you sweet potatoes. If you don’t have a food processor, just use a grater then go to the store and buy a food processor for next time. Life will be better with one.
6. When your meat is almost cook through, add all your spices to the meat and onions and mix to combine the flavors.
7. Now pour your shredded sweet potatoes on top of the meat and pat down then add your enchilada sauce on top.
8. Cover and let simmer for around 8-10 minutes.
9. Once sweet potato begins to soften, remove from heat, add your whisked eggs and stir to combine it all together.
10. Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.

from www.paleOMG.com <---great website, and everything is paleo (aka high protein and gluten free--just what you're looking for!)

I drink a Shakeology shake in the morning for breakfast - it is fast and easy and it has 16grm of protein.

I love to eat cottage cheese for breakfast.

the morning star "sausage patty's" are pretty good

dashingdish.com banana protein muffins are made with oat flour so they are gluten free and made with protein powder and greek yogurt so they have a nice amount of protein in them. you can just google search "dashing dish banana protein muffins"

I'm a big fan of the egg whites for breakfast too. I usually eat one yoke and add extra egg whites because 3 eggs is 240 calories and that is too much for me to start my day. Everyone is different. If you like yokes great, if you just want whites, who cares. Be supportive.

Protein Pancake. I make one of these every morning, I like it because its filling, high in protein and fiber and you can variy it as much as you like so it never gets boring. Or just to use what ever you have in the cupboards.

This is the basic recipe below:

Ingredients
Egg - Egg, 1 Whole Egg
Generic - Banana Large, 0.5 banana
Spices - Cinnamon, ground, 1 tbsp 18
Fry Light - Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray, 8 sprays 10" pan (4 for each side of the pancake)
Holland & Barrett - Psyllium Husks, 2 capsules (optional for added fiber)
Seeds - Sunflower Seeds, 1 tbsp
Seeds - Golden Linseed, 1 tbsp
Whey Protein - Vanilla, 30 g, 1 Scoop

Calories: 345
Protein: 31
Fiber: 9
Fat: 13
Carbs: 30
Sodium: 77

Blend all the ingredients together and cook on a low heat on both sides until done.

I usually top with the other half of banana and a squeeze of lemon juice but you can add any topping you like; other fruits/seeds/yougart/honey/nutella etc etc ...

I sometime substite the banana for fresh blueberries or strawberries when they're in season, and they give a fun colour to the mixture :-)

QUOTE:

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.


I just wanted to jump in and say that THIS is the reason I don't eat egg yolks 90% of the time. Cholesterol issues run in my dad's family so for the last few years I've limited my egg yolk intake -- just make egg white breakfast sandwiches & it's just as good (to me) as with the yolk.


For the original poster -- I'm in the same boat and have asked friends for ideas and steel cut oats was a very popular answer I received.

So, I'm gonna give that a try with a low carb or a greek yogurt on the side.

Good luck! :o)

I eat 1 96% fat free ham steak and 2 scrambled (whole) eggs for breakfast on mornings I want a high protein breakfast. 260 calories, 32g protein, 12g fat.

The ham steak on it's own is 120 calories, 18g protein, 3g of fat, so it's an option and you could eat something besides eggs with it, yogurt, almonds, something.... to add more protein to your breakfast

I'm not a fan of eggs for breakfast either. I make baked oatmeal. I usually add hemp protein powder to it to bump up the protein, but this week I got some shelled seeds instead of powder, so I added hemp seeds to them. I also add peanut butter. Delicious! And I can pre-portion them to take to work. Just grab and go in the morning! bigsmile

Lately I've been having a quinoa stew for breakfast. Its loaded with veggies, fiber and quinoa. I also poach an egg in there to make it nice and creamy but that can always be skipped <shrug>. Sits in me like a brick, much more nutritious than processed shakes, and is 200 calories!

In general, soups are a pretty good idea because one quick batch and your done for the week, plus YOU control the ingredients. Try some homemade minestrone with non-enriched rice instead of pasta or a deliciously creamy butternut squash soup. Man I love soup!

Unfortuneately, I have to take out a home equity loan to buy it, but if it works for you....

Some of my high protein breakfast meals without eggs.

1) TVP oatmeal
2) TVP pancakes with ground flaxseed for the egg.
3) Lentil (or garbanzo) flour pancake with ground flaxseed for the egg.
4) Beans on toast
5) Hummus and vegetables
6) Beans and greek yogurt

I need to eat protein in the morning to make it through the day but I don't stick to traditional breakfast foods. For example, if I have leftover chicken I'll eat it with something else. Also, I love taking leftovers and making "garbage" eggs in the morning. That's were you take your leftovers and mix it with some eggs, scramble it up, and voila!! Yum.
