I don't have time to sit down and eat something. I need something that I can eat on the fly. I also cannot cook anything with any sort of open heat source meaning no ovens or stoves. So I can't do eggs. I really don't want oatmeal. What else could I eat every morning?

Bagel - 300 cals
Little PB on top always helps the cals as well although I do prefer honey !!!

Cereal + Milk = about as easy as it gets

I prefer Kellogs Total Wheat or Oat Bran.

Can you get a microwave for your dorm room ? It opens up many other options in addition to the good ones posted by others.

Yes, I have a microwave. So far I'm thinking about getting pop tarts since I can eat them on the way to class. But they're not really a good source of protein now are they...

Ok A microwave opens up a range of options...

Oatmeal with milk cooked in the microwave

Eggs made in a special microwave maker. Leaves almost no residue on hte cooker, you can wipe it clean. Put cooked eggs between two slices of whole wheat bread for a sandwich to eat on the go. To make it healthier leave out one or more of the yolks.

Now I've heard that microwaving eggs will cause them to explode...does this apply for the omlette maker?

Not if you follow the simple directions that come with the cooker . Havent had one explode on me in the cooker yet.
The cookers are made out of a material with a smooth finish and which heats evenly.
