Dr. recently recomended me to reduce dairy and eggs because of allergies. At least on two foods per day I should avoid them. I am having trouble finding easy and quick recipes to substitute my cereal an milk bowl for breakfast. I am not all into substitutes like soy milk, almond milk. I would rather get some ideas for "vegan breakfasts?" I love meat.. I say vegan because of avoiding dairy and eggs.

My most typical breakfast consists of some kind of spread, or simply olive oil, on toast, with sliced cucumber (tomatoes, too, in season), some kind of sprouts, and whatever greens I have on hand. All garnished with salt and pepper and maybe some seeds like sunflower.
For spreads, my favorite to have on hand is cashew ricotta. This can be made easily by soaking cashews overnight, then draining, rinsing, and pureeing in a food processor with olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano, lemon, a few splashes of water, and nutritional yeast if you are in the mood to make it cheesy. Do a whole pound of cashews and keep it to use throughout the week.
Even though I can't eat it anymore, the previous suggestion of tofu scramble is a great way to ease yourself into vegan everyday breakfasts. There is a great recipe in the book Vegan Brunch by Isa Moskowitz. I also like the other suggestion of smoothie, which I often pair with the toast. I usually go with banana, coconut milk, some kind of berry, hemp/chia/flax seeds...maybe spirulina if I'm in the mood. The key is to keep a wide variety in your diet.
Beyond that, steel cut oats or whole grain toast with nut butter and honey are my usual breakfast standbys. There's something about honey that staves off hunger.
You eat fish stock, the powdered dashi (fish stock) is available in most Asian markets either in packets or better in jars..about 1 tsp to 1 cup of hot; heat in microwave. And frankly that's what most Japaneese resturants use; unlike chicken/beef stock crystals the dashi crystals are pretty much true to taste of the long form DIY stock.
One atypical (for Americans) breakfast is dal -- http://www.food52.com/recipe/breakfast%20dal -- look for a number of choices.
Very often I have a green drink, made from a powdered mix, with water as the liquid. Of course, adding anything fresh makes it better.... Even when I don't have anything else, I feel satisfied and energized the rest of the morning.
Fresh fruit, muffins (made without the dairy and egg; plenty of recipes) (I just made a version of this:
http://www.food52.com/recipes/197_walnut_bran_muffins -- to eliminate the milk, I would mix 1/3 tahini, which is a calcium source, with 2/3 water). Muffins are very forgiving when you substitute! When you find one you like, you're set for a while.
Like all dietary exclusions, it is hard to see how to fill the empty place in your usual repertoire. Try to look at all the wonderful foods that you can have. You'll end up enjoying the challenge!
