You guys are amazing with all these suggestions! I have either tried or will try nearly everything you said. I'm a huge fan of dairy in the morning as well as nuts and seeds (raw or in butter form). I also eat the occasional sandwich or two on the days I'm more awake when I roll out of bed.

With regards to quick and easy breakfasts, here's an update.

What didn't work:

A breakfast of:
- 1/2 cup steel cut oats
- 1 cup 2% milk
- Banana, small
- Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp
- Pinch of brown sugar
- Hard-boiled egg
- Flax seed, 1 tbsp

Calories 426, carbs 50 g, fat 15 g, sugar 19 g, protein 22 g, fiber 8 g

This held me over longer than the muesli but I was still hungry within a couple of hours.

What did work:

A breakfast of:
- 1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese
- 1/4 cup steel cut oats
- Banana, small
- Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp
- Peanut butter, 1 tbsp

Calories 373, carbs 44 g, fat 13 g, sugar 17 g, protein 22 g, fiber 8 g

This fills me up until it's time for lunch. I think it's mostly due to the peanut butter because I used to eat bananas dipped in peanut butter as a small, quick breakfast before bike rides and I'd feel full for a while.

Thanks again for all the suggestions!
