I know there are varieties of jam (preserves) available in low/no sugar, I use the strawberry, that could be a spread on toast. There's probably sugar-free peanut butter available, too. In Europe I got used to eating ham slices and cheese on a roll for breakfast... even though it seems like lunch food :-) but I got used to it and it provided lots of protein, which is good for breakfast. Do you eat fruit? That could be an option.

Have you found that a low sugar diet helps your symptoms? Was it hard to adjust to it, or didn't you eat much sugar in the first place? That might be something I'd try in the future... maybe. I might miss chocolate too much :-)

Hopefully other people will have more ideas for you.

I use natural jams sweetened with concentrated grape juice and no preservatives. I have it on sourdough rye bread toasted with butter.
Another treat is pancakes with real maple syrup or honey.
I also like to fry up some redskinned potatoes with olive oil or butter, green pepper, and an egg.
There are some other really great breakfast ideas in The Maker's Diet book. Berry smoothies, pancakes, etc.

Fruit smoothies, this is how I make mine...

plain yogurt (excellent probiotic benefit to it), a splash of pineapple juice and a cut up banana all in the food processor and what a yummy and nutritious drink.

Fruit smoothies are good, my version would be made with low fat soy milk, 1/2 Banana and a handful of frozen blueberries, some yogurt also, blitzed then passed through a small seive, no skins or seeds for me. delicious and a very interesting colour.!

ok, so I am a little strange, but my nutritionist wanted me to have protein in the morning so she suggested (and I have now for months) eating ground turkey burger - I season it how I like it (garlic, onion, pepper and parsley). I cook up a pound of it and then I'm set for several days. I just reheat it w/ a little chicken broth and have a piece of toast.....

You could try semolina or porridge, sweetened however you like it, or plain.

PS. It would be a good idea to read the labels on your low / no sugar processed foods. A lot of them contain sugar substitues that can exacerbate d and other gut problems.

I know certain sugar substitutes even in gum make my gut worse. I cannot have anything with nutra sweet however most of the other artificial sweeteners are okay for me. Each person is different though so as Ivy said read the labels. One of my close family friends has mult food allergies to the point where she even has to boil water (bottled, filtered, or tap) before she is able to drink it. Certain foods she can have however one time a food manufacturer changed ingredients and nothing on the bag changed but the ingredient list. Since no other noticable thing changed she bought it ate it and had severe issues. Needless to say she reads all labels now just in case

   I went to a homopathic dr.  and he told me no sugar which is impossible .  I don't eat cakes and candy  :(   Although once in a while I will treat myself.  I try not to eat too much added sugar in things.  It's hard.  Also if the sugar is way down in the ingredients label i ws told the sugar isn't too much
 
Hope this helps

Breakfast has been going down so well this week that I've been making it for dinner, too!  Egg beaters with a little bit of garlic powder, a slice of cheese, 1 turkey sausage link, a potato pancake, and an English muffin.  For breakfast I do 1/4 cup egg substitute(equivilent of 1 egg), for dinner it may be 1/3-1/2 cup.  It's easy on my stomach, tastes good, and keeps me satisfied for hours.

It's not impossible to avoid sugar, I know it seems so but it's really not because sugar is added to processed foods, and processed foods are not recomended for IBDers along with fast-foods, caffeine, animal fat and such...

I'd sooner eat a banana or whatever fruits you can tolerate for breakfast then anything out of a box/can which is processed.

If you have a Wild Oats or similar organic grocery in your area, you should be able to find plenty of hot and cold cereals without added sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Hmmmm, a nice breakfast can be toast (rye or whatever you like) spread with almond butter (smooth of course!) and some sliced banana on top.

For all you morning time egg eaters out there...Do you worry about your cholesterol when eating upwards of 7 eggs a week (if you have one for breakfast every day)?

I know some eat them for protein, but from what I have seen they only have about 6g's protein per egg.

I guess if you were concerned about cholesterol levels one way around it would be to whip up an omlette with just the egg whites.

oatmeal rules. get the plain rolled or steel cut oats. cadilac it up with pure maple syrup, cinnamon (not cinnamon sugar) and/or fruit.

nature's path makes great granola cereals.

ezekiel makes sprouted grain cereals = easier to digest. they also make bread (ie toast) and english muffins.

toast a bagel, use a kefir or cream cheese spread and top with egg.

eat fruit in the morning. i always have some kind of berry.

make pancakes if you have time.

there are gluten free waffles.

fruit smoothies are good (i think those are covered already)

you do have to read labels but it is very easy to eat breakfast and have no to limited added sugar. i do it every morning. watch out for jams and jellies. fruit is naturally high in sugar but most of them ADD sugars or other synthetic ingredients, so scrutinize the label very carefully.

I will eat anything, anytime, anywhere that I can tolerate. Pasta for breakfast...you bet! Like a high protein breakfast too! I'm NPO tonight because of tests in the morning and I already have the prednisone munchies!
