I'm assuming that means that breakfast suggestions that include protein are ok?
I make homemade turkey sausage breakfast patties pretty regularly, and eat them in several variations: alone with a smoothie, tucked in a toasted sandwich thin, or diced into an egg-white (or Egg-beater) omelette that I wrap in an Aldi flatbread or eat with fresh fruit.
1 package (about 20 oz) low-fat ground turkey (I typically get around 94% lean) 1 teaspoon salt 0.5 teaspoon sugar (this adds very little in the way of carbs, but allows the sausage to brown better) 1 teaspoon summer savory 1 teaspoon thyme sprinkle of crushed red pepper 2 teaspoons ground sage
Sprinkle ground meat with sugar and salt. Using a mortar and pestle, pulverize savory and thyme until powdered. Sprinkle over meat. Pulverize sage and red pepper until fragrant (red pepper will remain flakes, but the oils will distribute through the sage, evening out the "hot" flavor in the final sausage product). Sprinkle over meat.
With hands, gently mix meat thoroughly until spices are evenly distributed. Divide into 6 balls, about 3.3oz each. Pat into 4-5" diameter patties. Grill 1-2 minutes per side, or bake in a 400F oven on parchment-lined baking sheet until an inserted thermometer measures 140F.
Remove from heat to a pot or bowl that can be covered and let stand at least 15 minutes before serving.

I too love soup at any meal. You might like my French Toast for one.
Break 1 1/2 slices of bread into small squares and put in the bottom of a microwaveable cup.
then mix 1 egg and 3 T milk and a tad of cin and vanilla and add to broken bread cubes and make sure all is saturated with mixture and micro for 1 or 1 1/2 min (depending on micro) and you have your own French Toast.

I love soup for breakfast - a little habit I picked up in Japan.
You could also try researching vegan breakfast ideas. Vegan french toast is particularly good!

I am like you, I experiment all the time. I have an uncanny mind when it comes to concoctions
Do you like avocado? Toast a piece of Ezekiel bread and mash up some avocado and spices. The fat in the avocado will help keep you full, and that type of bread won't spike your blood sugar.

cream of wheat- you can make it savory by browning some onions, adding garlic, any veg of your choice, curry leaves/cilantro, spices like cumin and coriander powder, then toast the cream of wheat. add water, let it boil up and then thicken. delicious!
you can make savory pancakes with chickpea/gram flour- same idea. finely chop up whatever veg you want, add the flour and water (and a little baking powder), any spices you want, and then make like regular pancakes. you can also make them plain and stuff them with anything you want (like potatoes and peas with caramelized onions, cumin, and cilantro).
you can make chia puddings or overnight oats with dairy-free milks/yogurts
smoothies with protein powder & almond milk are great too! you can add whatever fruit/veg you like.

Doctor said no more cheese because cholesterol was a tad high. Help, any suggestions for cheeseless breakfast ideas?

I saw an interesting thing here on SparkPeople that I can't really try because of the carbs in it -- they aren't high, but it would put me over my carb count.
Well, a few different approaches that you could try might be:
- Forget about what we in North America consider traditional "breakfast" foods, and start having soups or stews or gluten-free wraps or sandwiches. A stir-fry of vegetables with a bit of meat (can you have meat?) and a flavourful sauce can be a great start to the day.
- While you are tired of oatmeal, how about considering cooking up some different gluten-free grains or seeds? If you bulk cook some lentils or quinoa or buckwheat or amaranth or sorghum (or, better yet, some of each), then you can mix them up each morning for a different flavour / nutrient profile. You could try it as a regular "cooked cereal", or saute up a mix of fruits and vegetables and nuts and add it in as a "warm salad". I personally adore either a quinoa / grain mix sauteed with spinach and onions and mushrooms and almonds and topped with a splash of balsamic vinaigrette --- and equally adore a mix of lentils and buckwheat mixed with chopped apples and pears and dried fruits with some cinnamon and ginger.
- Maybe you might enjoy a flaxseed or chia "pudding" made with almond or rice milk, and a variety of fruits or flavourings.
- Check out some "paleo" or "keto" sites, since they have some great recipes and recommendations for different low-carb / dairy-free / gluten-free / grain-free / sugar-free versions of breads and bread-type items. I can't tell if you eat vegan or vegetarian, but there are vegan / vegetarian versions of both "paleo" and "keto".
Hope this gives your imagination a bit of a kick-start, and you have some new things to try until you are feeling better!

Hello, community, I need ideas for breakfast. I am told I need to be dairy free, (I love eggs & cheese) limit to once a month, gluten, & sugar-free. I have also eliminated tofu from my diet. I have high blood protein levels. Tired of eating Honey Bunches of Oats, & Cheerio's & Oatmeal. Mostly I just avoid breakfast.
