My go to breakfast these days is a toasted tomato sandwich on rye with no butter, hot banana peppers and light mayo. 171 calories.

Refrigerator oatmeal! I hate the taste of cooked oats but love them cold! There are TONS recipes out there, if you can get your hands on some chia seeds I hear they're great to add to them but they're too expensive for me to justify buying.

One of my favorite kinds of overnight oats/refrigerator oatmeal is really simple

1/4th Old Fashion Oats (Quick work too but do not use instant or steel cut)
2 TB Spoons of Peanut Butter (Or better an almost empty peanut butter jar)
1 TSP of Sweetener ( I chose brown sugar, but honey would also work really well or something calorie free)
1/4th Cup Milk (I chose Unsweetend Almond Milk, if you were using sweetend almond milk you could probably omit the added sweetener)
1/4th Cup Greek Yogurt ( I like Orkis Vanilla but if I wasn't allergic to Strawberries I'd have added that for a PB Jelly taste)
1 TB Chocolate Chips (Optional)

If you have one dump that oats into the peanut butter jar, you can add more PB if you want but you probably won't have to. Add sweetener and stir to distribute it amongst oats. (If using a different container, just add the oats and sweetener to that)

In a separate bowl mix together Greek Yogurt & Milk (And peanut butter if not using an old PB jar or you want extra) You would also add anything extra at this point such as chocolate chips or protein powder.

When well mixed dump it over oats. Cap jar and shake to combine everything. Put in the fridge overnight and wake up to deliciousness.

The next morning you can top it with fruit such as a banana. There are TONS of ways you can do refrigerator oatmeal and I find it to be really filling! I'm sure it would taste fantastic microwaved as well, but if using an old PB jar do not put that in the Micro.

I saw this in my cooking light magazine and was thinking about making it. I would lighten it up some more add more savory veges and maybe make in muffin cups--

Sausage and Polenta Breakfast Casserole
Ingredients

2 teaspoons olive oil
10 ounce diced chicken andouille sausage
2 cups sliced green onions
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 1/2 cups fat-free milk
1 1/2 cups uncooked quick-cooking polenta
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
1.75 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated (about 1/3 cup)
2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
Cooking spray

Preparation

1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add sausage; sauté 3 minutes or until browned. Add onions, thyme, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
2. Bring milk to a simmer in a large saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in polenta and salt; simmer 7 minutes, stirring frequently with a whisk. Remove from heat. Add cheeses; stir until cheeses melt. Place the polenta mixture in a large bowl; let stand 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in pepper sauce and eggs. Add sausage mixture; stir well to combine. Spread polenta mixture into a 2-quart glass or ceramic broiler-safe baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cool to room temperature. Cover surface with plastic wrap; refrigerate overnight.
3. Preheat oven to 425°.
4. Uncover dish. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or just until set.
5. Preheat broiler to high; remove dish while broiler preheats. Broil 2 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes.

I keep telling myself that on the weekends, I should make a huge batch of frozen tofu scramble wraps - filled with tofu, herbs, onions, garlic, kale, vegan sausage (1 link has 24-25g of protein and low in carbs!) and edamame. High protein, savory and easy to grab in the mornings!

Bacon or sausage is much better. Eggs are not filling enough for me. I'll eat them if there is meat mixed in though.

Crepes

Sausage or whatever breakfast meat you prefer
Spinach
Potatoes
White onions
Garlic Powder
Salt and pepper
Cheese
Green Pepper (optional)
Rosemary (optional)
Red Pepper flakes (optional)

Throw that in a skillet then wrap it up in a crepe (you can get pre-made crepes at Safeway). I like it with cottage cheese.

Can also make a burrito by using chorizo then wrap it in a tortilla with some salsa and sour cream on the side. A jalapeno will add some spice as well.

Well I make a scramble of egg whites with some Mexican flair, but you can substitute firm tofu chunks: black beans, diced tomatoes with green chilies (canned is fine), light sour cream, 2 % shredded mexican cheese, and salsa.

Sometimes I just have cold cereal, but it's never quite enough so I eat it along with greek yogurt and a fruit.

I recently discovered the Jalapeno laughing cow cheese wedges - spread one of those babies on a pice of multigrain toast, and top wtih tomatoes and avocado. Delish!
