Dear Elizabeth
All the breakfasts you describe can be used as equivalents by someone who is trying to lose weight. If you are not trying to lose weight then I would suggest that you add 1-2 slices of toasted low-GI bread with 1 t of margarine and a spread to the breakfasts. The rest of your diet is also adequate for someone who is trying to lose weight, but it may not supply you with sufficient energy if you are not trying to lose weight. Make sure that you get 3 servings of dairy a day, and at least 2 servings of chicken and 2 of fish per week (to provide some iron to your diet).
Best regards
