Skipping breakfast usually is a mistake. If you're interested, you should do some googling around to find out why. It has to do with metabolism, being too hungry for your next meal which causes many to overeat, etc. etc.

Toast with peanut butter, maybe? Natural peanut butter (just plain ground peanuts) isn't very sweet, it just tastes like peanuts.

There are hundreds of ways to cook eggs - scrambled, boiled, poached, fried, quiches, omelets. You might find that you can eat eggs more often when you learn lots of ways to prepare them. You can even toss in last night's leftovers to your scrambled eggs or quiches. Eggs have pretty much built-in portion control.

Easy answer, I guess, would be pasta with store-bought sauce. He can stock up on those and keep them in the pantry for anytime. Try finding smaller cans of sauce, just enough for two servings. Or, skip the sauce and just keep around a bottle of olive oil to dress the pasta, toss with garlic powder and dried herbs, top with parmesan from that green can (which probably doesn't really need refrigeration - they leave it out on restaurant tables all the time).

Chicken breasts, pork chops, steaks, fish, etc. in the skillet would also be easy. Once they're cooked, take them out of the pan and toss in some vegetables to saute.

If you're going to buy anything, maybe a bigger pot or saucepan? You can take a piece of sandpaper to the cast iron to remove the rust. Then wash with soap, dry thoroughly, and re-season it (lots of info about re-seasoning on google, if you're not sure how). If there's anything you want to bake, use the cast iron skillet instead of buying a baking sheet or dish.

If you decide to go with ramekins, try finding a restaurant supply store in your area. I bought my ramekins at one and they were much, much cheaper than what I saw elsewhere.

Can you call the manufacturer to find out?

Doesn't sound like a good idea to use on your range, since it was mentioned above that it would scratch - you could still use it in your oven, though.
