Any ideas for breakfast?

I never know what to make for breakfast. Besides waffles, cereal, and pancakes. Does anyone have any suggestions on more choices for breakfast that is really healthy? I can not have any yogurt.

Do you have problems with irritable bowel at all? Sometimes that can be a major contributor to pain levels, I know it is for me at least. I've really had to watch what I eat. Starchy carbs, and too much gluten or fat often send me either to bed or the bathroom with horrible gas, bloating and pain.
For breakfast I try to get in a lot of protein for my achy muscles, which does seem to help, and make sure to have some fruit! I usually eat a banana or an apple and an omelette topped with salsa for breakfast. Maybe a little boring, but at least it saves my tummy from agonizing IBS symptoms!

I like breakfast burritos or egg mcmuffins.

My stomach is really cranky in the morning, so I always eat rice cakes spread with sugar-free peanut butter. The chocolate and peanut butter rice cakes have more flavor than the plain ones. However, I always need a mid-morning snack since it doesn't last long. (Fruit, cheese, and almonds.)

Egg on toast or french toast is nice. Fruit is easy and good. Hollow out an apple and put a bit of butter, sugar and cinnamon in the hole, bake in the microwave for a couple of minutes and you have a great tasting dessert or breakfast. Make an omelette with cheese, tomato, peppers. Basically you can eat anything for breakfast that you would normally eat at any other time of day. It doesn't have to be "breakfast" food.

For those of you with GERD or IBS try unsweetened almond milk. Dairy is a big contributor to gastro problems according to one of my army of doctors. I'm finicky (female version of Mikey) and the fact that I like almond milk is nothing short of a miracle. I prefer a high protein drink in the morning to get me off to a good start and help me down a fistful of pills. Protein is very important for anyone with FMS particularly in the morning.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. The one thing i can't have any dairy. I do have IBS and i do watch what i eat. I just get so sick of cereal and need some ideas. I do have a really bad stomach i am very sensitive to so many foods. I use soymilk for most of my cooking and butter with no dairy. Any of you who have drank almond milk is it good and do they make in in chocolate form also?

Yes, almond milk is quite good - I am really picky. Silk is making almond milk now. Soy is not something you should be using in any form. It has been found to contribute to inflammation. Depending on how it is manufactured you may also be getting hormones you don't need.

I'm not sure if almond milk comes in chocolate. Coconut milk is also another option that is good and full of antioxidants. Rice milk is terrible -really thin and tastes nasty. If your grocery store has a health food section, check it out and see what else is there other than soy in the dairy case. You could probably just add some chocolate to the almond milk. Take care.

Take the silk milk and add some fruits and make yourself a silk shake, you can even add half of a banana if you need that extra sustainable meal.

I just bring fruits with me when I work and munch on them throughout the day.

Sometimes just a piece of toast with peanut butter buttered lightly with some milk or juice.
