Try making muffin tin frittatas filled with veggies ahead of time. 

 

You can make a batch on Sunday and bring one to heat at work, or heat and eat as you leave the house. If you stick it between a light, fiber English muffin you have an instant breakfast sandwich. They also freeze well.

 

You could make breakfast burritos and freeze. Then stick them in the microwave and eat on the run.  Use a Flat Out wrap, egg, canadian bacon, cumin, salsa, mushrooms or peppers or spinach or any veggie.

I make overnight oatmeal in my fridge when it’s warm out.  1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup oatmeal, half a sliced banana, 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds, and something to sweeten it – either a handful of berries or a spoonful of jam.  Put it all in a jar, shake it up and leave it in the fridge overnight, grab it on your way out the door and when you get to work the chill will be off and it’s perfect to eat.

@ThreeMeers:  Great suggestions! I think I might try these!!!

 

@MercyK:  For breakfast I drink whey protein, it’s only 120 calories. Then mid morning at work I have a small handful of raw almonds or an orange ๐Ÿ™‚

@abbylyn:  that’s a neat idea! So You don’t cook it at all it’s just ready after sitting overnight?

@RoyalLime:  Does the whey protein actually fill you up? I’ve never tried it and am curious. I am not a big breakfast eater either but always end up STARVING way before lunch.

@canarydiamond:  It gets something in my belly. I drink it more for the protein aspect though. That is why I have a small snack mid morning. I drink the protein around 7am and have a snack around 10, lunch at noon, an orange around 2:30-3, then dinner around 6-6:30. I have lost 23 lbs in 10 weeks and 15 inches overall. I workout 6 days a week. 4 days of just cardio for a hour. The other 2 days are strengthening and toning days.

@MercyK:  Do you like eggs? I am horrible for eating breakfast and looking for ideas as well, but I was considering hard boiling an egg and eating it on a slice of rye bread. Maybe with something like mustard and tomato to add a bit of flavor. I am not sure if my stomach could handle that in the morning though, but if I eat it at work a bit later it might be ok.

@Utopia4us:  Yup!  The oatmeal soaks up a lot of the moisture, and the chia seeds do too and they really help to give it a more “oatmeal” like texture.  You’ll find A LOT of overnight oatmeal recipes that use greek yogurt, but I like it better this way.

@MercyK:  I have been trying to lose weight for my wedding and I have been eating egg whites and whole wheat toast in the mornings in stead of my usual 2 bowls of cereal lol. I used to eat a whole egg but it has alot of calories in it because of the yolk…so egg whites are good ๐Ÿ™‚

I dont know weight watcher rules but I will peel and cube an apple and put some splenda and cinnamon all in a bowl and microwave it for 2 minutes sometimes and either put it on a whole wheat waffle or on yogurt or oatmeal… or just eat it as a snack.  Its so delish!

I have a protein bar and a hard boiled egg white and I make my SO an egg white omlette (four whites one yolk).  I always make it the night before with some low fat gouda cheese and ham and he has it cold or warmed in the microwave when he gets to work.
