I love sweets for breakfast and it is hard for me to find any variety for breakfast other than a protein shake. I'm trying to eliminate all breads, and that had been my staple for breakfast. I'm getting bored with shakes and need some other short ideas. I am also lactose intolerant.

Here are some typical breakfasts I have:

Eggs and bacon
eggs and turkey breast
eggs and chicken
eggs and beef (I love eggs)

Now, you say 'eliminate all breads'. Does this mean you're going for low carbs? Because if so, that doesn't mean cutting out all breads. There are plenty of low-carb solutions that are bread-like. You can make muffins/cookies/breads out of flax meal instead of flour, or you can even use protein powder to make them. Also, flatout flatbread is very low in carbs. Once you have that, putting almond butter (very low carbs) on any of those will make it very delicious. Top it off with walnuts, and it's perfect.

Too bad about the lactose intolerance though, a lot of my breakfasts that don't include eggs often utilize heavy cream or cheese to make amazing things like low-carb pizzas, cheesecake pancakes, or protein pudding.

Consider looking here for low-carb recipes:

But yeah, meats will be your friend. I love going to the walmart deli and getting some sliced turkey/chicken breast and sizzling it up really quick in the morning. It compliments eggs so perfectly.
If you think my post is too abrasive, harsh, or offensive, you're:
A) Wrong.
B) Too sensitive.
C) Not going to receive an apology for pointing it out.

Have you looked for a low carb bread? I used to buy one, but I can't remember the name of it now. There's also a Nickel's bread that is very low everything, but it tastes like air.

I mention it because my breakfast of choice is peanut butter on toast with honey.
DISCLAIMER: I expect to lose this weight over the next 6 months to 5 years. I'm not going to feel like a failure if it takes an entire month to lose 1 pound. I'm going to feel like a success when that happens! I may offer advice that I'm currently not taking myself. Feel free to call me on that!

I love making Egg White Scrambles, it's pretty quick and you can prepare the cut up veggies on Sunday and they'll last the week.

I take some spinach and saute it, throw in 3 or 4 egg whites, scramble them up with S&P. Once it's almost done, I through in about a TB of feta cheese and some chopped tomatoes. I have it with a low fat yogurt and presto a healthy around 300 calorie PC Combo (Protein-Carb combo)

Another one I like is Huevos Rancheros with red potatoes instead of tortillas. You slice up 1 or 2 small red potatoes, put a teaspoon of olive oil and brush them, add S&P-throw them in the over for 15 minutes. (I do this as I'm getting read for work). Then I scramble up 3 egg whites, throw in 2 T of fat free cheese and a little enchilada sauce. I put the egg mix on top of the potatoes, and again-another PC Combo.

I've loved breakfast AFTER my cereal or toast days.
