Default take-along breakfast ideas?

I always take my breakfast with me in the AM because I'm never hungry immediately and I'm a snooze button pro... but the luna bar that I usually toss in my bag is not enough to keep me going till lunch.

Any good ideas of foods (especially including protein) that I could toss in my bag (i walk or bike to work/classes)? Much appreciated! =)

Bananas - not protein but they really do fill you up in the am & don't need refridgerated.

String cheese or peanut butter would be a good protein alternative. I make PB toast in the am & don't eat it until I get to work. It's not warm anymore but still crunchy & yummy!

I take packets of instant oatmeal to work also banana's and I keep a jar of peanut butter there too.

Im lucky enough to have a fridge at work. I take yogurts and fruit and water and stock up the fridge.

Not sure what program you are following but this has always been one of my favorites. 1 WW english muffin with 2 T FF ricotta cheese and a dash of cinnamon. I tell myself it is a cheese danish

I'll second the recommendations for fruit and string cheese. Single portions of yogurt or cottage cheese are good too. You can buy big containers and pack it into small tupperware containers and stir in a serving of seeds/nuts for extra protein and good fats or fruit.

I toast a whole wheat english muffin, nuke an egg in a small dish (using cook spray and cover it with plastic wrap) for 45 seconds while the muffin is toasting, then throw in a bit of salsa and go...! If you don't want to cook the egg, you could throw in leftover chicken.

I will also eat hummus with crackers.

Cool, thanks for the ideas! PB and string cheese sound good. I do take a banana or apple sometimes but that doesn't help as much - I really think it's the protein I need to keep me going! Eggs are perfect but they don't travel very well...

That english muffin w/ cottage cheese and cinnamon sounds REALLY good. Cottage cheese will be ok at room temp for an hour or so, right? Sometimes I kind of throw caution to the wind with that kind of thing... one of these days I'm going to give myself food poisoning, though!

That sounds AWESOME, buckeye! I am so going to try that!

Iris, I take my cottage cheese to work in a tupperware and I add my frozen blueberries to it. Over the morning, the blueberries defrost a bit and keep the cottage cheese cold. I usually eat it about 3 hrs after packing it and I've lived to tell the tale! You could pack it in an insulated lunch bag for added chill if you wanted.

I've become so efficient at packing food, campus food is soo expensive so I never bypass taking my lunch. I wake up, and before getting in the shower I put on 2 boiled eggs and put chicken breast on the george foreman. Once out of the shower I quickly slice of veggies and throw everything into containers and finish getting ready! It literally adds less than 5 extra minutes to getting ready in the morning. Sometimes I'll also put jam on some bread and wrap it up.

I do the same thing! Pineapple was on sale this week, so my CC is with pineapple this week. I'll second hard boiled eggs. They've kept for a couple of hours in the summer for me, and I ate them with dirt on my fingers. I'm still alive!

I haven't been in a car accident in over ten years. But I think I'll keep wearing my seatbelt

Luna bars are my usual breakfast on the go too. I definitly back up the string cheese idea.. and here are some other ideas..

I freeze personal sized yogurts and bring em with em with me. Wrap em n a towel so they dont get your stuff wet in your bag.. and they last a while.. and taste like icecream.. with protien!

How about those baby carrots and cheery tomatoes.. throw em in a tupperware container and have somethingto munch on all morning

I make smoothies in the morning and bring them in to work in a big rubbermaid or thermos cup, depending on what is clean. I make then extra thick so after an hour they are still cold and yummy, just a little thinner.
