yogurt, cottage cheese, berries, melon, bananas.
also, i found a recipe on here for make-ahead breakfast burritos (i didn't save it) but my point is the recipe suggested making a bunch, wrapping each individually in wax paper, put them in a big freezer bag and freeze them...VOILA! breakfast is made in advance and you can just pop them in the microwave for re-heating. i thought that was a good on-the-go idea ;) emoticon

I make scrambled eggs in the microwave. Once you find out the right timing for your microwave, they taste just like ones made in a skillet. I usually have 2 scrambled eggs and a half a grapefruit, and sometimes a piece whole wheat toast.

Any instant hot cereal, toast with cheese, eggs made in microwave- something left over

I usually do doctored up oatmeal or toast for breakfast but there are plenty of other options. Here's some ideas:

oatmeal with peanut butter and apple chunks
oatmeal with ground flax and raisins
cream of wheat
brown rice with raisins and cinnamon
rice pudding (as long as it's not overly sugary)
grits
pancakes
waffles
crepes
muffins (there are so many variations on this, there are lots of healthy recipes out there)
eggs of all sorts
egg casserole
left over pizza (just kidding!)

I hope that helps. :)

during the week, we usually grits with shredded cheese with coffee.
on the weekends, we have either a full breakfast -- eggs, grits, sausage, toast -- at least one of the days.

I like to have two scrambled eggs. Depending on when I think I will have lunch, I may add some cheese. The little extra fat from the cheese keeps me from getting hungry too soon. I also have some yogurt. My favorites right now are Fage (2%) and chobani (2%). They have a good amount of protein in them and just a little fat. This breakfast gives me a huge energy boost and I'm ready to tackle my day. To save time, I usually eat the yogurt in the car:)

add chopped bell pepper and onion to the egg whites for minimal calorie and maximum flavor.

I like to make a pan of scrambled eggs or just egg whites - one carton of those - sometimes on Sunday and then roll up individual breakfast burritos for the week. They microwave fine when I get in to work. I wrap them in foil so they are tight in the fridge and then unwrap to microwave. You can cook up any veggies you want, turkey bacon, meat substitutes, you can add low fat cheese, fat free refried beans and egg and cheese....turkey sausage, feta, and spinach....swiss cheese and canadian bacon or ham.....once i heat it up, I'll pull it open and pour in salsa or a 100 calorie pack of guacamole. These are a fave! If you're choosy on the ingredients you can come in pretty low cal.

I like a bowl of cream of wheat or a bowl of plain oatmeal. After cooking the hot cereal in the microwave, I add fruit. Often I add apples and cinnamon but here are two other favorite combinations:

"The Elvis:" Add in one mashed banana and 1 teaspoon of peanut butter after cooking. I don't add additional sweetener to this one.

"Tropical Delight:" Add in a serving of fresh pineapple and 1 teaspoon of sweetened coconut after cooking. I don't add sweetener to this one either because the sweetness of a ripe pineapple and the coconut seem to satisfy my need for sweetness.

I love Kellog's nutrigrain waffles with 1 TB of peanut butter. Sometimes I add 1/2 banana, or 1 cup of blueberries.

Eggs!

An omlette is super easy and fast and can be filled to get a vegetable and dairy serving in.

Scrambled eggs in the microwave are beyond fast!
