First off, since you're not much of a breakfast eater, I admire your efforts to eat breakfast. It's a good decision. Breakfast boosts your metabolism and fuels you for the first part of your day!

I do eat breakfast every morning, but I don't care much for traditional "breakfast food." That is why I say, don't limit yourself! I had a piece of veggie lasagna for breakfast a couple days ago. It did the job! And c'mon...who doesn't like cold pizza in the morning?

Fruit is always easy to grab when you're on the way out the door. Other favorites for when you're short on time: almonds, string cheese, Anytime Health/Luna/Kashi bars, cereal (sometimes you just don't have time for milk!), veggies, or hard boiled eggs (much easier to eat with your hands than sunny side up!). Sometimes I'll even grab a spoon of peanut butter and eat that!

Another option you have is to prepare your breakfast the night before. This will save you a lot of time when you're running around looking for your keys in the morning Wink

Oatmeal is a great option, as are shakes. My favorite breakfast for when I'm pressed for time is a cup of Quaker instant oats (the rolled kind in the big tube, not the sugar filled packets) mix with a cup of milk, and nuked for 1 minute. Then I'll add a scoop of vanilla protein powder and a cup of mixed berries, and I'm all set. I've found that adding the protein powder makes it a much more filling meal.

I make a big batch of Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats ahead of time and save individual servings in small tupperwares in my fridge. Takes less than two minutes to add 1/2 cup of milk and nuke it. Add a few berries, a squirt of honey and a small handful of nuts, and you have a breakfast that not only tastes good but has almost your ENTIRE DAYS worth of fiber in one small bowl, and it will fill you up for several hours.

Yeah the idea is to get something in your system for breakfast; preferably something healthy. Experts believe that it’s the most important & essential meal of the day. A lot of great ideas already mentioned, love the steel cut oats pre-prepped idea & either freeze them or throw them in the fridge & nuke-on-the-go.
Experts also say there are 5-7 foods you should eat everyday for purposes such your heart, health & brain support. My idea is to squeeze 3/4 of those foods into breakfast; oats (steel cut or rolled oats, try & avoid the instant if you can), yogurt, blueberries & nuts (natural almonds un-salted are preferred).

& don’t forget about AH meal replacement bars; Cookies & Crème are delicious & the Cinnamon & Baked Apple Squares are tasty.

Good luck.

As a public school teacher, I have to have breakfast. I don't get a break until 10:00 in the morning. Generally, I eat cereal with fruit and fat-free milk. Some days--if I have time--I eat toast (a high fiber bread), low-fat yogurt and fruit.

During my break, I eat a Kellogg's protein bar. I know that sounds like a lot of calories for a "snack" but it actually helps fill me up. I can make it through lunch and to the end of the day without being hungry.

If I'm in a huge hurry bars are fine, the Anytime Health peanut butter/chocolate chip is really good. Otherwise a half cup of higher protein granola(Oudies is good)and a cup of greek yogurt which is generally higher in protein than traditional yogurt. Should be good to go until afternoon.

I happen to love breakfast but I don't always have time to make something. Here are my two quickie breakfasts: plain greek yogurt with berrries and some low fat vanilla granola on top for crunch. Or just a Luna bar or luna protien bar and a biece of fruit or even calcium OJ - some would say there is too much sugar in both of those choices but also lots of protein so I am not hungry again until noon.

Hard boil some eggs the night before, make an egg sandwhich with wheat toast in the morning. Yummy, filling and good for you.

I boil a dozen eggs on Sunday night and then have two each morning. They last all week cooked so it saves time having to prepare only once a week. And since I like to sleep in a little I grab two eggs on my way to work and eat them there along with a cup of oatmeal (I buy the high fiber sugar free kind) or sometimes a banana instead of oatmeal. I find that protein and carbs work best for me in the mornings, gives me lots of energy and gets my matabolism going!
