In a hurry in the morning and no time for breakfast.

Need ideas of super quick, almost packaged but not processed. Is there such a thing?!!

An apple works too. Or a pear, orange, etc. A slice of bread with a smear of peanut butter, folded in half.

LARA bars! Only 3-4 natural ingredients! Basically fruit and nuts. No preservatives or any other crap.

Just recently, my friend told me that summo(sp?) wrestlers skip breakfast to put on weight. It makes sense. Make sure to eat something!

Kashi bars or I will take a multi grain tortilla and put all natural peanut butter and either sliced bananas or sliced apples on it. Quick and easy and easy to eat in the car driving to work.

I make breakfast burritos on the weekend and eat them during the week - 1 minute to warm up and you can eat them one-handed in the car (I eat mine after I get to work while I read email). I use chicken sausage, lo-carb high-fiber wraps, egg whites and lots of veggies + hot salsa - low cals and yum!

Hard boiled eggs are a great grab-and-go breakfast too. An easy way to get some protein in when you don't have time to cook.

I eat either a peanut butter toast (1 tbs only) on lo cal double fiber bread - eat that in the car, or a hardboiled egg, or a sugarfree low fat yoghurt with some blueberrys or 1/2 banana and a tbs of fiber all (can't eat that in the car tho. Last resort is 1/2 or whole power bar. I like the idea of making the breakfast burritos in advance suggested by the prev poster...I'm going to try that.

I can't remember which diet book I think it was southbeach but they had this receipe that I make ahead of time and eat all week on. It's made with eggbeaters, green peppers, red peppers, onions, mushrooms, plus any other raw veggies you want to include, plus 1/2 cup of diced low fat swiss. Mix all together and put in muffin tins and cook for about 20 minutes in oven. I put them in individual baggies and put in frig and take out a bag for breakfast warm in microwave.

Ditto on bananas. Bars are good, too - I like Raw bars (they fill you up for a LONG time) and Nutrigrain bars, although those are less filling.

6:06 - I made that recipe from South Beach and they were fabulous! Only around 35 cals each and you can freeze them.

Cool recipe. And it seems like you would feel like you are eating a real breakfast.

I often have a dutch chocolate slim fast bar. 140 cal and really good with coffee.
processed though.

What about yogurt?

I ahve also made the baby quiches- fantastic but I got bored of them. I like to eat all natural yogurt w/ a little vanilla and dry oatmeal, if I have time.
When I have NO time, I will grab a southbeach snack bar.

Fruit is great but I eat it with a cup of skim milk. If I dont have protein- I will not be full and then I am tempted with the nasties at work

Pack your breakfast the night before! Yogurt, granola, fruit in a bag in the fridge... and then set the timer on the coffeemaker (or fill it with grounds and water the night before and flip on while getting ready). If I didn't do this, I wouldn't eat in the morning!
