Let's face it: Breakfast can fall into a real rut sometimes. And while almost anything can become a picture-perfect breakfast with the addition of a runny-yolked egg ("Put an egg on it!") what if you want to branch out and leave eggs behind? Maybe the grains, too? No grains, no eggs — what's left? Quite a lot, actually — starting with this heavenly avocado pudding. Read on for this and 9 more breakfasts that take a break from grains and eggs.
- Avocado Breakfast Pudding - A quick, easy, and delicious way to eat avocado for breakfast.

And then of course there are so many other more casual breakfast idea, like a simple piece of fruit, a handful of nuts, or a big bowl of last night's leftover bean chili (I really love eating beans in the morning — so much protein!). What other breakfasts without grains and eggs do you like?
