If I had a 1200 calorie food plan with the same nutrition components that I'm following today - the table below shows how these two foods would fair. Failing grades - too much fat and carbs! The Icy Rice Crispies has nearly 45% of the daily carbs in just that meal. The Brown Toast/eggs had nearly 60% of my daily Fat allotment. WOW.

OK that was then what am I having for breakfast now? Earlier this year I was just having a piece of fruit for breakfast. However, as MTM / nutritionist advised I needed to have some protein for breakfast, I've settled onto two options.
After turning a new leaf and getting focused on making healthy choices, my favorite breakfast now is taking 2.5-3 ounces of tofu and mixing it with 5-6 ounces of non-fat Greek yogurt. I was putting it into the blender, but now I just break up the tofu with a spoon. It's fast and a good balance and proportion. Alternatively if someone else is cooking breakfast ;) the option is generally a spinach egg white omelet and piece of fruit.
Thank you for reading!
Have a great day!
