Rate my breakfast

I'm trying to improve my breakfast habits in the hope that it will help improve my severe physical and mental fatigue. Tell me how this breakfast sounds to you, and what you would change, if anything.

I'm a vegetarian, and I can't face eating eggs in the morning, but I am open to any non-meat non-egg breakfast ideas.
This is what I eat for breakfast at the moment:
A bowl of a good-quality commercial natural (untoasted) bircher muesli. Muesli ingredients = rolled oats; nuts 10% (almonds, hazelnuts, pecans); dried fruit 18.5% (sultanas, raisins, apricots); sunflower seeds; sesame seeds; honey; cinnamon. The muesli is low GI (GI rating of 40.)
Soy milk. Soy milk ingredients = filtered water, organic whole soybeans, tapioca syrup, Job's tears, sea salt, calcium carbonate.
A glass of filtered water, or two.
A pot of black tea with soy milk.
I am aware that a healthy breakfast on its own can't fix my fatigue.
I am working on other areas as well (including working with my GP), but I want to optimise my breakfast.
