I love baked oatmeal. I'm going to try some of these recipes. Thanks!

Ditto on all the oats!

So many preparations ... rolled oats simmers until gooey, rolled oats uncooked in liquid and a little chewy, steel cut oats, oat groats, baked oats, oats in a smoothie ... soluble fiber and all the rest? Okay, I'll give it a rest ...

Also, as a treat, waffles! They can be made without eggs. Go the vegan route with them if you wish, or include dairy. You can do them single-serving. Add fruit and/or nuts. Make extras and freeze them, toasting them later ...

A slice of whole grain toast topped with 1/2 c low fat cottage cheese and some berries or sliced fruit. Yum!
Or 1 slice of multi-grain bread, 1 T almond butter, 1/2 sliced banana. Easy, quick, portable fold-over.

Oatmeal. I cook 1/2 cup oats with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk. I might add some sweetener (brown sugar, Splenda or sugar free syrup), I might not. I usually add vanilla and cinnamon or apple/pumpkin pie spice. You can add any fruits/nuts, etc. you want to it. I also like to add in plain Greek yogurt for a protein kick. Now, I know you said you don't like eggs, but another thing I like to do is, once the oatmeal is cooked (this is key), add in an egg whtie or two. Stirr really well, and it gives a nice custardy consistency to the oatmeal, and added protein. You can't taste the gg whites at all. Sort of like eggs in baking recipes.

I don't like eggs either. Here are some things I eat.

Lowfat yogurt with fruit and granola
Apples and peanut butter
English muffin/toast and peanut butter
Fruit and cheese
Cereal and lowfat milk
Oatmeal and glas of milk
Smoothies (when I have time to make them)
Protein Shake and fruit

I try to find a protein to throw in with my breakfast one way or another. I try to get a fruit and/or grain with it also.

This is my first post to spark. How about smoothie's, they are fast, and easy. Also, make muffins, and have with greek yogurt and a fruit. Sometimes, I make a really healthy berry crisp for breakfast with oatmeal topping. I like the whole grain pancake mix, make the pancake or waffle up, and then I put sugar free jam, and sugar free pancake syrup. ALso, Hungry girl, has a lot of recipes.

This is an easy, healthy brunch/breakfast meal - it does have eggs but it's hard boiled.

1/2 100% whole wheat Sandwhich thin, toasted
1 hard boiled egg, sliced
1/2 oz., low fat shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzerella,etc.)
1/2 C meatless spaghetti sauce (I spice it up with more garlic and oregano)

Toast the sandwhich thin, top with the sliced hard boiled egg, top that with the cheese and pour hot spaghetti sauce over it all to melt the cheese. I sometimes put it all in the microwave to heat the egg if I hard boiled it earlier. About 280 calories! My honey loves bacon so we always have Hormel's precooked real bacon bits on hand and he adds 1 tbl of those before the cheese. Adds about another 15-20 calories.

Proving that it's not impossible to change things around even when you hit 60!

I hate eggs too. This weekend I am making my own chicken breakfast sausage patties, and plan on making sandwiches with those and some whole grain english muffins and some cheese. Here's the recipe for the sausage patties
They're only 40-50 calories each and you can limit the amount of sodium in them.

Also do a search for baked oatmeal. It's easy to make a bunch at a time and just reheat in the microwave.
