I feel better if I have a protein first thing in the morning (an egg, tuna, slice of pre cooked bacon) and a 1/4 cup of steel cut oats with cinnamon and coconut oil with blueberries, before my workout then when I return an hour after workout I have a small yogurt with chopped almonds.

Personally I have a nutrition bar (atkins, fiber one, etc) and a dannon light and fit yogurt each morning. I get various flavors and the calories, carbs, protein, calcium, etc is a good start for my metabolism.

There aren't any right or wrong options for breakfasts so long as you enjoy what you have and your glucose meter likes it too.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with having breakfast for dinner or dinner for breakfast. The word "breakfast" comes from breaking of the fast, which simply means to eat after a period of not eating (overnight). So, whether you want chicken or fish or pizza is as good an option for breakfast as oatmeal, veggie omelets or low carb pancakes w/ fruit.
