Default Breakfast on the Go? Suggestions

I dont usually have time to fix a good healthy breakfast for myself when I am leaving out in the morning.. I usually grab a breakfast bar or a pack of oatmeal to eat at work..but I'm usually still hungry. Whats a good filling breakfast to eat when you dont have the time to cook in the mornings?..maybe I should grab more than on thing..suggestions suggestions!?

I've mentioned this in another tread, but I often eat non-breakfast foods at breakfast.

A few slices of deli turkey or chicken folded in a single slice of multi grain bread has protein and carbs and keeps me going for a while. Add a banana or other piece of fruit and it's a great quick breakfast.

Sounds like you might want something higher in protein? Maybe prepare something over the weekend? I had a friend who used to eat sliced chicken for breakfast (she was rebelling against the idea of a sugary, high carb bfast), and she would cook it on Sundays to have for the whole week.

I remember one idea from the South Beach book -- make muffin-sized mini quiches (with just eggs, veggies, cheese etc) for the week and freeze them. That's what I'd probably do if I was pressed for time in the morning. But I just scramble eggs.

hardboiled egg for protein!
Or yogurt -- maybe with some cereal tossed in?

Lately I've been having 2 scoops of Zero Carb Isopure whey protein in "cookies and cream" flavor with 1 cup unflavored soy milk and 4 oz of water. Shake it up and it's yummy AND filling: 310 calories, 57g protein, 7g fat, 6g carbs. It's easy to throw together and drink on your way to wherever. I use it on Mon, Wed and Fri mornings when I have an early class or after a workout for some quick protein.

Hehe...the diet advice I'm currently following suggests getting about 1g of protein per pound of body weight to maintain muscle and support repair of muscle while losing weight in a calorie deficit So, with about 160g of protein to get a day, sometimes one of these little shakes is just what I need! It's 25g protein per scoop--and 2 scoops makes a tasty, protein-rich shake!

Azure--so that would mean I need 226 g of protein every day? I don't know how on earth that would be possible!

Yeah, I would def up the protein in the morning. If you have a bar, make sure the bar is low in carb and high in protein. You can find them. I have some almond milk, a string cheese and an atkins bar that is full of protein and I am good to go for about 4 hours.

When I have days where I'm running late I usually will split my breakfast into two segments. I will drink a slimfast shake at home or eat a harboiled egg, a slice of toast with some PB on it or a bowl of oatmeal—sometimes with 1 TBS of PB in it. Then when I get to work I eat a grapefruit, boiled egg, piece of toast with PB on it (just not the same as what I had a home.)
Then I'll still have my midmorning snack between 10-10:30 of fruit, yogurt, 100 cal. snack pack, etc.

If I am looking for something fast and decently filling, I will grab a banana and put 1 tbs of peanut butter on it and have some green tea with it and its usually enough.
