Ok.  So, I just started a part time job, from like 8-1:30.  And I need some breakfast ideas.  I want something that will hold me for several hours and will be quick.  I like smoothies, with some tofu for extra staying power and bananas and strawberries.  I'm not too crazy about eggs, I only really like them scrambled with a bunch of 'stuff' in them.  But I'm open to ideas.  And I don't want to be eating oatmeal every day, nor do I want to eat pancakes or waffles a lot.  And cereal just gets boring really quick, and honestly, it doesn't hold me that long.  Any suggestions?  I'm really open to anything.  It just needs to be quick and has good sticking power.  Cause I hate to be hungry like, 2 hours later.

I can't have sweets for breakfast so I've always had a rough time with this meal too. I've been eating real oatmeal with a mixture of add ins like cinnamon sugar, dried fruit bits, nuts so that it's never really the same every time. I find that real oatmeal will tide me over better than those nasty pre-packaged things.

You can try making your own granola for a quick grab and go There's an excellent tute on here somewhere by lapoli (at least I think it was her). I'll come back with that link... Found it! It's a recipe by jungrrl not lapoli. Smiley

I'm also fond of a toasted bagel with peanut butter. YUM!

What about making up a batch of roll ups? They can be made up ahead of time and wrapped individually. If you don't add mayo, you could do scrambled eggs with the other goodies. (Be sure to allow them to completely cool though before you add them to your wrap.) Throw in some crumbled bacon or sausage bits, maybe a veggie like sauteed onions or peppers. We do breakfast burritos with flour tortillas, scrambled eggs, bacon bits and salsa. YUM!

I like muffins for breakfast. I freeze them and then pop them in the toaster oven to warm them up in the morning. My favorite is pumpkin and cranberry, but any fruit is great. I make them with brown sugar instead of white and I only use a small amount. The fruit gives them enough sweetness that you really don't need much sugar.

I also like oatmeal in the morning. My hubby has it for breakfast everyday and he makes it in the rice cooker so he can do other stuff while it cooks.

buy some premade crescent rolls or biscuits, roll them out, and fill with eggs/sausage/cheese or whatever, seal and freeze. they are basically like homemade hot pockets. I like to do them with turkey and cheese too. muffins are great, they can also be made and put in the fridge or frozen and reheated. you can make them healthy and filling with pumpkin, zuchinni, carrot, nuts, dried fruit, flax seed, wheat germ, etc. try homemade granola bars too, there are several recipes out there.

also, you can make up a big pitcher of smoothie mix, and pour it into ice cube trays, and just pop out a handful of cubes when you want to have a smoothie. you can throw them in the blender with a dash of milk or yogurt to make it smooth again.

I have also just filled ice cube trays wtih fruit puree, and trays with yogurt, and then you mix the cubes and add juice or milk. that way you can also use the fruit cubes in oatmeal, on ice cream, etc.
