I’m the opposite! Can’t eat before at all. What about those mini clif bars? It’s just like 2 bites.

How about apple with a piece of cheese? Good and quick!

You can make some breakfast wraps. Scramble a bunch of eggs and divide them into whole wheat wraps with some sliced deli turkey and low fat cheese. Wrap them individually and put them in the fridge. In the mornings, toss one in the microwave while you’re getting dressed and eat it on the way.

@BLynn:  Hard boiled eggs are always fast and good protein, rice cake with peanut butter/almond butter spread, baked oatmeal bars,  or sometimes I munch on dry cereal or granola

My morning favorites were whole wheat toast with peanut or almond butter or kashi cereal bars.  For longer, more intense workouts (runs over 8ish miles) I would eat half a clif bar- the kashi ones had too much fiber *if ya know what I mean* or a hard boiled egg with some peanut butter toast.

After an intense workout, I like a gigantic glass of chocolate milk, or if I’m heading straight to work from the gym I would get a panera breakfast power sandwich (or make my own and reheat it at work… scrambled egg, cheese, and a slice of bacon crumbled in the egg)

My Fiance does a tablespoon of low fat peanut butter and a big water, then eats for real when he’s back.

@mamadingdong:  I was going to suggest these too.  They’re the new Kit’s Organic Cliff Bars.  They are TASTY and I think they would do the trick

I usually have a banana, but if you need something more how about a protein shake as well.

I used to eat hard boiled eggs and fruit when I worked out early.

I would either eat a couple of crackers, or a granola bar. Have you seen those scrambeled egg things on pinterest? You make them the night before (just like normal) and bake them in muffin tins. Then you can heat them up real quick in the morning. That might be a good idea 🙂

Quinoa!!! It’s amazing. There are tons of muffin pan recipes for it on Pinterest, it is super healthy, super filling, and is great in both sweet and savory recipes.

Also, super hard to screw up. It’s like rice, but it cooks in only about 10 min. I accidentally left mine on the stove for about 20 min too long the other night and only burnt the bottom – the rest was delicious! Lol. Make it the night before to make things even faster.
