I eat high fiber cereal or an egg white omelette with a little cheese.

My fiance and I love having 2 hard boiled eggs and a banana. It's nice because you can boil all the eggs in advance and the bananas usually last for a week so there is no effort involved after the initial purchase and boiling of the eggs. :)

I like a piece of toast, and some Greek Yogurt and fruit on the side. Fairly cheap

Loaf of bread: $4 - 12 slices (I like thick sliced) $0.33
Greek Yogurt: $4 - 4 servings $1.00
Nectarines: $4 for 4 - an apple would be cheaper, but it is what I have $1.00
Butter - Not working that one out, lets say $0.05

So my breakfast costs me $2.38 per day. I don't know if that is cheap enough or not.

I should note that I live in a high food cost country. No such thing as coupons, not much competition to drive the prices down. Your local prices will probably vary.

I usually like oatmeal (with some honey, raisins, walnuts, cinnamon, or some combination - depending on my mood that morning. Or flax seeds are cheaper and still really healthy with omegas and fiber)

Smoothies are another favorite - but that can add up in cost sometimes, depending when and where you shop. Farmers markets may provide cheaper fruits. Maybe even toss in a handful of spinach for an extra nutritional bang ;-) It's a nice option, too, if you have fruit about to go bad and need to use it up quickly. Sometimes I'll add the flax to that, too, because the little extra fat can help me feel fuller a little longer, plus i like the nutty flavor it adds.

Eggs are another great way to use up "about to go bad" foods - chop up your left over veggies and make an omelet, or just a scramble!

I like plain yogurt with fruit and nuts. Sometimes I make eggs. Other times, I like to eat dinner leftovers for breakfast.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

Breakfast is the cheapest meal of the day. A couple eggs, peace of toast, and slice of lunch meat. Bowl of granola, milk, banana. Mixed fruits and nuts. the list goes on.

Eggs are a great breakfast, and very inexpensive. You can add in any kinds of veggies you have around like onion, spinach, tomato, broccoli, summer squash and so on, and make a frittatta or omlette. I just made huevos rancheros for breakfast with a couple fried eggs over a black bean and veggie mixture with a corn tortilla on the side and it was super tasty and nutritious!

In the winter, I like steel cut oats with some fruit and a little soy or almond milk and cinnamon.

I love eggs! You can buy a dozen and hard boil them for the week. They are portable, healthy and inexpensive. I usually have 1 or 2 with a slice of whole grain toast for breakfast. I find it really keeps me satisfied until lunch. Also, I like non-fat plain Greek Yogurt with berries and 2 tablespoons of Lizi's granola. Although, for me this meal works better as a snack. If I eat yogurt for breakfast I'm usually hungry again within a couple of hours and I need a snack. Another suggestion is making a batch of protein pancakes on the weekend. You can freeze them and take them with you. Serve with fruit, yogurt or my favorite, Walden Farms Calorie Free Pancake Syrup. emoticon

A cereal that has a good balance of fiber and protein and low in sugar (I like Special K Protein Plus)
Cottage cheese
Whole wheat toast

Any combo of the above (depending on your calorie ranges) can be quick, easy, and fairly inexpensive. If I'm having cereal I'll have some (not from concentrate, 100%) fruit juice. If I'm having cottage cheese I'll have some whole wheat toast and juice, etc. I like to get a good balance of carbs, fiber, and protein in at the beginning of the day. The above items are staples in my kitchen so breakfast ends up being one of my easiest meals for the day.
