Very healthy, good for you. I will try it.

Today I had some fiber one cereal with a few fruit loops added & milk, a cup of coffee & a slice of buttered banana bread.

I don't like sweet breakfasts and eating a fry up every day is a bad idea.
I started eating small things in the morning about 2 years ago to get myself into eating breakfast. Either a boiled egg (I always keep a few in the fridge for the kids as a snack), a rice cake with cottage cheese or hummus, plain yogurt with seeds (pumpkin, sesame, linseed and sunflower seeds) or anchovy toast.
Now I'm so used to it, it's become a habbit.
I, too, have the problem of if I start eating early, I eat more all day. Not as bad now as when I was younger (like you!). When I first got out of the hospital, I coaxed myself into yogurt, fruit, and a dollop of granola, simply because I knew I needed it in my stomach before I could take pain pills. Well, I didn't take them for long, and got back into exercise classes, and now eating before I go to class is a pain in the posterior!

I'm going to try a cup of broth with a beaten egg swirled into it in the morning. See if is a viable breakfast for quick, easy and nutritious. I hate eating first thing in the morning.

Seems like we have a lot in common I also started eating breakfast mainly because of the meds I have to take
I love food though but good food! If it's the usual day to day stuff I could even go without!
