    My husband and I only watch calories; my go to breakfast (his too most of the time) is a slice of seedtastic bread (Aldi) with a TB of chunky guacamole (Aldi) or half an avocado cubed, topped with a fried soft egg. I dot mine with sriracha.

    I recently had a dental procedure and have had to eat oatmeal. I long for my "good" breakfast.

    a couple scrambled eggs with tomato slices or a omelet with mushrooms or (in season) asparagus. I make these in a non stick pan. My dr has encouraged me to "bulk" up the eggs with vegetables. A small slice of a heavy grain bread,sometimes only half a slice. I have this when it's cold, and I know it'll be awhile before I can eat again.

    I alternate that with greek yogurt mixed with some berries and a small amount of granola or cereal. This is a preferred breakfast during hot weather.

    Whole grain toast with some peanut butter and apple slices on top is good too.

    I've also had left over soup for breakfast,if it's a type thickened with some beans or meat for protein.

    For me what's important is having a breakfast that won't leave me hungry in a couple hours.

    Eggs and toast most days.
    Oatmeal on others.
    Yogurt on some.

    If I'm in the mood to limit carbs I'll do eggs and some crackers.

    Similar to Alida - breakfast is fuel for the day, cut back at the other meals.

    I have this breakfast periodically too: a cup of rice (I like basmati but any rice will do), a teaspoon or so of minced ginger and soy sauce, and a soft fried egg on top. I also dot it with sriracha.

    I find a good omelet with some leftover veggies/beans and a bit of cheese takes me a long way. Can cook it in a cast iron skillet with almost no oil.

    When I get sick of eggs, I'll have some oat groats with a chopped apple, nuts and a little kefir or almond milk. A few drops of stevia if I want it sweet.

    depends on your activity.

    Since I weight train every day,

    In order to hit my macros, I tend to eat:

    lean bacon or home-made lean b-fast sausage or chorizo

    egg whites - either as an omelet w/ cheese, or scrambled with salt and pepper and cheese

    low-carb yogurt

    coffee

    Unless I am out of eggs, I make my flax seed griddle cakes. Ground flax seed, wheat bran, olive oil, little bit water, and eggs to hold it together. CAnt eat grain/starches anymore due to diabetes. Can spice it up various ways. Like it with some fresh greens from garden.

    No its not pancakes with honey, but its as close as I will get anymore. It doesnt jack up my blood sugar.
