soyless breakfast?

Does anyone have suggestions for high protein breakfasts that do not contain soy? I generally eat oatmeal and fruit in the morning, but I'm starving by noon and would like something that stays with me a little longer. My nutritionist says I'm consuming too much soy, so I'd like to avoid it at least for a while.
Would love to hear what everyone else likes to eat for breakfast!

Homemade Unturkey?

I recently went veg about 2 and half, almost 3 months ago, and now that Thanksgiving is rolling around I really want to make a dish to bring to our annual family feast so I can share this new part of my life with my relatives (also so I can insure I'll have something yummy and meat free to eat! hah). So my question is this: now that Now & Zen's Unturkeys are no more and we are left with only Tofurky as a last resort, has anyone actually successfully made their own Unturkeys using the recipe from http://unturkey.org? It looks a bit complicated and I consider myself a pretty good cook. I don't want to expend time, money, and effort to end up with nothing more than an anything but delicious big glob of gluten on my plate.

Basil/Garlic Polenta/Tofu Scramble on Toast

I made this today & it was tasty. I don't believe in measurements though, sorry.

You need:
+equal parts cubed tofu & precooked polenta (I'm obsessed with Food Merchant's Brand Garlic & Basil)
+splash of olive oil
+lots of Nutritional Yeast
+Paprika, to taste
+Basil, to taste
+Garlic Powder, to taste
+Salt/Pepper, to taste
+Toast
+Vegenaise.
Heat oil in sauce pan. When hot, add basil & garlic powder first, then tofu & polenta, followed by other spices. Cook until polenta & tofu are desired consistency (I like 'em slightly crispy). Mix same spice mixture with Vegenaise to make a tasty spread. Put everything on toast. You're good to go.

Wayyyyyyyy better than an egg sandwhich, I tell ya.
