how about some eggs in the morning! prepare them night before boiled that is!

I mean, really, you should get up 15 mintues earlier and just scramble up a bunch of eggs and make an english muffin or something.

Other than than you could do oatmeal, not the instant kind but the natural 5 minute kind. Make a shake out of that and a banana and you could always get soy protein like spirutein (sp?).

Thanks for the help Chris. How nutritional is natural oatmeal? Could I add anything to it to give me a little boost in protein?

Sounds like a good idea. I could prepare a weeks worth and frig it so it's easy to eat in the morning.

Protein powder, eggs, yada yada...not all that complicated to come up with alternatives.

old fashioned oatmeal is loaded with complex carbs and 4-5g of fiber per 1/2 (dry) serving. protein is low, like 2g.

I've added whey powder to my cooked oatmeal, and it was NASTY. some like it, i thought i was horrid. I'd recommend egg whites for breakfast, but if you find a shake is easier, get a powder thats Whey and Casein blend.

I was in the same boat as you, and the answer for me was a breakfast shake called "Labrada Lean Body Breakfast".

It's a meal replacement shake designed for breakfast.

You can check out the products they have here:


I drink the Bananas & Cream variety. I think it's a good shake -- not too much fat or sugar, a nice amount of protein and calories, plus a bunch of vitamins.

Oats and whey is my daily breakfast. Taste great. 1 cup dry oats, 2 scoops nitrean, 2 spoonfuls of splenda, dash of cinnamon.

I drink a 500 calorie weight gainer as soon as I get up. I'll usually eat some whole wheat crackers with it. I'm not hungry in the morning but I need to be getting calories at this time to reach my 5000 calorie a day goal. Two hours later ~9:30 I have a few oatmeal-to-go bars at school.
