Breakfast should be the biggest meal of the day that gives us energy and helps speed up our metabolism throughout the day.  I have found that eating fruit, filling foods, and protein are a great way to start the day.  For fruit I enjoy bananas, apples, strawberries, and mixed fruit but any fruit that you enjoy is great.  As far as filling foods go I like to eat whole grain bread, cheerios, sandwich thins, and eggos.  Try to find filling foods that are high in fiber and low in fat which will satisfy you.  For protein I enjoy turkey sausage which I often have inside of 2 toasted whole grain eggos, sandwich thins, or whole grain english muffins.  Eat what you enjoy for breakfast with fruit, filling foods, and protein along with a glass of milk to get yourself off to a great start of the day while speeding up your metalabolism.  Doing this will also prevent yourself from getting very hungry around lunchtime.  I have found that when I don't have breakfast I usually don't make healthy choices for a mid morning snack or at lunch time because I'm hungry
