I make egg muffins on a Sunday sometimes – using a muffin tray. Beat the eggs and add the mixture to the tray along with whatever fillings you like – chopped peppers, onions, bacon, mushrooms, spinach, feta cheese etc. Add black pepper (and salt if you like). Bake for about 20 minutes. You can bring them with you and eat cold or pop in microwave for a few seconds to heat them up.
Turkey pepperoni – buy a good organic one and they keep for several days in the fridge and can be eaten on the go, even while driving!
Sweet potato hash – you would have to make ahead on a Sunday. Chop sweet potatoes into cubes and bake in oven (add paprika, salt, pepper – whatever seasonings you like). Stirfry some peppers, onions, tomatoes, one egg and turkey sausage. Add them together and portion into 3/4 servings.
Baked mushrooms – get the large mushrooms and stuff with whatever fillings you like – feta, tomatoes, peppers, spinach and top wth some butter/garlic butter/olive or coconut oil and bake for 15 mins. Keeps for 3/4 days in fridge.
Grilled tomatoes and sauteed spinach.

I have quiche for breakfast a lot – I make one with a quinoa crust so it’s a little healthier.

I, like a PP, make egg muffins. I usually add spinach, mushrooms & cheese. I’ll make enough Sunday to have two a day for the whole week. I don’t like eating them by themselves so I wrap them in a tortilla like a breakfast burrito. They’re delicious and a good source of protein in the mornings

I put whipped cream cheese on a toasted whole wheat English muffin. Then a sprinkle chia seeds on top of that for extra protein. Or I eat a whole avocadoe with salt sprinkled on it. Or a hard boiled egg. I don’t like sweets for breakfast, either!

SisterJude: Toasted grill corn tortillas. I put egg and salsa and seasoning into a bowl and microwave it untill it is scrambled. I put that on tortilla plus slice of whatever cheese I have at the moment (havarti and pepper jack works the best) and voila!

My quickest one would have to be proats. I put my oats and a serving of protein powder in seperate containers before I go to bed. In the morning, I take them to work with me and then all I have to do is add a little water to the oats, zap it in the microwave for about a minute, then stir in the protein powder. It’s awesome because there are SO many different flavours to choose from. Sometimes it even tastes just like pudding without being too sweet (or sweet depending on what flavour you want!!). I also sometimes like to omit the protein powder and add bluberries instead. I tend to add them in before I put them in the microwave so some break open and flavour the oats and some stay whole and then burst in your mouth but sometimes I’ll thrown them in after microwaving for a bit of a tangy hit.
I also like wholgrain toast topped with mashed avocado, lemon juice and a tiny sprinkling of salt. You could even omit the lemon juice and top with a couple of eggs instead for some extra protein. Yummmmm!!

SisterJude: Whatever looks like the least disgusting items of the day @ Starbucks. Usually the yogur parfait.
Panera’s Egg, Bacon and Cheese is to die! But it’s out of my way for the commute – good weekend or day off breakfast though.

SisterJude: My go-to breakfast is usually steel cut oatmeal lately. I prefer mine a little sweetened (I’ll add a bit of milk and splenda brown sugar to mine) but Fiance likes his more savory (he says “like cream of wheat!”).
The Kitchn has a post about savory steel cut oats! I imagine it might be yummy with a bit of parmesan and a bit of bacon or something. http://www.thekitchn.com/rethinking-oatmeal-7-savory-morning-recipes-177491

MsGinkgo: Do you have a recipe for the quinoa crust? I eat quiche daily, but without crust and I’d love maybe a little hint of that awesome taste I’m missing.

carolinabelle: I missed the crust too much to do crustless.
The quinoa crust is really easy. 2 cups of cold cooked quinoa. Mix in 1 egg. Add salt and pepper if you want. Press into 9″ pie dish, bake at 375 for 20 minutes. It’s a really good substitute.

SisterJude: Avocado toast and a hardboiled egg. If you don’t like sweet, I make green smoothies most days, and depending on what you add (I keep mine almost entirely veggie – little to not fruit), it’s really not sweet at all. On days when I have more time, I cook up some shredded Brussels sprouts in some olive oil, add a little salt and pepper and an egg on top. So yummy and so filling!

-Avocado toast, or PB toast
-Egg muffins with whatever veggies or meat you like
-Lately I’ve been making a bunch of over-medium eggs at a time (enough for several days), then in the mornings I toast an English muffin and add a sprinkle of shredded cheese and heat up one of the eggs to put inside the sandwich. Super fliling and healthier than stopping at Starbucks/McDonalds/etc.
-Oatmeal with PB

SisterJude: I’m not big on sweets for breakfast either. My go-to is a homemade egg mcmuffin (just a egg over medium on a toasted english muffin with a slice of cheddar), but I also really enjoy a piece of toast with hummus & sprouts/avocado/shaved carrots/boiled eggs (whatever I have around).
I make some stuff over the weekends if I’m feeling up to it. I make egg boats on the weekends and they usually last through the first half of the week (sourdough baguette stuffed with eggs, cheese, cream, sausage, & spinach- baked & then sliced). I also love frittata’s and they can also be made with pretty much anything as long as you have the base of potato’s, eggs, & cream (my favorite is mutli peppers with asparagus topped with sprouts & hummus). I’m totally not above lunch or dinner for breakfast- couscous is delicious 24/7!
