I need some new ideas for breakfast, I keep getting burnt out on whatever I make. My FI used to make omelettes every morning and now I am sick of them, then we had cereal or oatmeal and now I am sick of that! So instead? Ive been eating cookies.. yeah, I realize this is an awful habit but I honestly cant think of anything else good! Anyone have any yummy and healthy ideas?

@Excited To Bee: Sometimes I eat low fat Dannon yogurt and fresh fruit… smash up 1/2 a Nature Oats crunchy granola thingy to put on top. It tastes great. I also buy individual snack Granny Smith no sugar added Applesauce for a midmorning snack. I drink them out of the liitle cup driving or in my office I never bother with a spoon0)

Greek yogurt with some granola and/or fruit
Poached egg with some quinoa and salsa (one of my faves, and you can make the quinoa the night before!)
Muffin tin quiches with phyllo pastry instead of crust with whatever fillings you like – phyllo pastry is better for you than the heavy crusts, and has a really yummy crunch to it
Smoothies! So many options… I like a banana, a bit of ice, splash of milk, and some peanut butter. Really filling! Can throw in a bit of spinach too and not taste it!
I looove breakfast!

So I know you said you were sick of omelets, but I had to tell you about my breakfasts.
At the beginning of the week (or when I’m making dinner with the right veggies), I dice up red, green, yellow, and orange peppers, mushrooms, and onions (and sometimes meat if I have some around), and put them in divided containers. Then in the morning, I just throw two eggs in a bowl, and stir in a spoonful of each veg. I toss that all in an oiled pan with a lid and a little seasoning salt. While it’s cooking, I cut out 1/3 of an avocado and smash it up with some guacamole spices (I use “Epicure Selections” which is amazing and you can order it online). After I flip the egg, which is something halfway between an omelet and a fritata, I guess, I spread the guac on one half, and sometimes sprinkle a tiny bit of cheese on the other. Fold it in half, and you’re done!
I have eaten this every morning that I can for the last few years. It’s AMAZING and easy and I still haven’t gotten tired of it. Plus it’s low carb and very healthy.

Another thing that I like for breakfast, which is going to sound a little weird, is bean salad and a couple of eggs over easy.
My favorite bean salad is just a can of mixed bean medley, some steamed and diced green beans, diced red pepper and green onion, and a bit of olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper. Sounds plain, but it’s super yummy. And for some crazy reason it goes really well with eggs.
It’s low carb, high fibre, and pretty damn healthy. Plus when you have the bean salad ready in the fridge, breakfast takes like, 4 minutes to make.

@Soladylike: They make applesauce in a squeezable pack. It’s perfect for eating in the car or office!
Personally I like to eat chicken for breakfast. Chicken strips are perfect and easy to grab.

I like to cut an avocado in half, remove the pit, hollow it out about a centimeter more and then crack an egg in it. Bake at 350 until the egg is cooked. SO GOOD.
Smoothies for breakfast are always a good option. Frozen fruits, spinach (you wont even taste it) and and greek yogurt, mix in blender. So yummy and filling.

In addition to the suggestions here, you can always eat any food for breakfast. IE, we are inundated with “breakfast food” marketing, and a lot of it is total crap. You can eat anything (like chicken, green beans, rice, you name it) for breakfast. It’s not weird when you get over thinking its weird lol.

Overnight oats are my go to. I was getting so sick of oatmeal until I tried this……
1/3 cup of oats (not the quick cook kind) 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt, 1/3 cup of almond milk, 1 tbsp of chia seeds. Mix all together, cover overnight. The oats soak up the liquid and tastes like a yummy parfait. Add in fruits, nuts, almond butter, raisins…… The mixins are endless. Right now I add a 1-2tbsp of Q’ia cereal, which is a blend of chia seeds, buckwheat, hemp and dried fruit.
@ejan: couldn’t agree more about quinoa and poached eggs!! My favourite weekend breakfast!
quinoa is a perfect start for breakfast. You can have it savoury with eggs, or sweet in a yogurt parfait. I make a batch up on Sunday to use it for the week.

I know you said you were sick of oatmeal. But it is actually one of the best breakfasts you can make. Especially if you get WHOLE oatmeal, like actual whole oats, not powdered or crushed. The reason being, is when it’s whole, it takes longer for your stomach to digest it, and you feel fuller longer, thus less eating, less calorie intake, and voila – en route to shedding those extra pounds 🙂
To spice it up (or sweeten), mix it up a bit. Make it with low fat milk instead of water, for some innocent fatty deliciousness. Throw in a handful of dried cranberries, some nuts (like almonds, or pecans). You can also cut up a fresh apple, or throw in fresh berries like blue/rasp/straw-berries 🙂
Mmmmm, maybe I’ll go make myself some oatmeal now! It’s so good for us 🙂
