Q: I've realized that it is really important for me to eat protein at breakfast, and am trying to do so every morning. For the past few months, I've usually eaten either eggs, a green smoothie with protein powder, or Greek yogurt, but I'm getting a little bored.
What are some other ways I can get protein into my morning meal (I'm not a big meat eater and am about 75% gluten free)? Any unusual, offbeat, or interesting suggestions welcome!

Editor: Carrie, a couple popular protein-rich recipes from the archives:
• Make-Ahead Recipe: Crustless Mini-Quiches
• Low Sugar, High Protein, Dairy Free Smoothie (pictured above)
The quiches are especially great because they can be made ahead of time, and you can vary the fillings to give them seasonal flavors and interest.
Readers, any more suggestions for Carrie and her breakfasts?
