    Big, Bold, Breakfasts

    Hi all,

    My diet has picked up a lot recently, i think i am no the right track. One problem i do find i have is getting enough food inside me for breakfast.

    I get up for work at 4:30AM, so cooking and clanging around is not really doable in a house full of sleeping people, i am only getting some Oats and Yoghurt in me for breakfast and then struggling to get the rest of my calories in once i get to work etc etc.

    Anyone got any simple but big breakfasts they eat that dont involve a cooker or too much prep time, obviously the later i can get up the better, 4:30AM is a nasty time to get up anyway

    Thanks in advance

    Kiff

    I can never be bothered to cook in the morning, so my breakfast is normaly a big bowl of muesli, glass of juice, a banana and a shake that normaly adds up to 1000 calories and sets me up nicely for the rest of the day.

    Shakes. If blending in the morning is too noisy, prepare it the night before.

    That would be my advice too.

    Or just use a shaker.

    Other options could be:

    microwave some eggs and cheese.
    breakfast cereals
    toaster pastries
    fruit
    dennys grand slam
    yogurt
    extra milk and/or juice

    As the guys have already said, shakes will help - nail a Maximus or Opticen each morning alongside your breakfast and you will net an extra 616 (Maximus) or 372 (Opticen) calories and thats whe mixed with water. Drink them with whole milk and it will be more. Plus with Maximus and Opticen you will be getting QUALITY calories, not just a bunch of sugar.

    You could mix up 4 eggs with whole milk/cheese for some calorie dense scrambled egg/cheese.

    More oats

    Make sure your yoghurt is as calorie dense as possible and mix it with fruit.

    Peanut butter is also pretty calorie dense, so if you like that 3-4 table spoons is a quick and easy way to pack on calories.

    You could make peanut butter sandwiches the night before and leave them in the fridge ready. Down them with a pint of milk. I did this when I worked construction last year and had a lot of early starts. Sometimes it can be hard to make yourself eat something that dense when you've just woken up though.

    Sorry for the slackness in replies guys.


    Thank you everyone for your help,

    I am going to go out and get stuff at the weekend, yoghurt sounds good to me, JC you point about dense food that early is a good one, yoghurt does seem a good alternate option.

    Gonna chuck some more oats in too as Daniel suggest.

    Thanks everyone.

    I hate cooking in the AM as well...and I cannot eat a lot for some reason either. Shakes FTW. Right now I am doing 5 hardboiled eggs and 1 scoop nitrean + 16 oz of milk. Its about 900 calories...

    Not sure how long I can eat hardboiled eggs for though.

Alas, have a pint of milk. I did when I worked in the building last year and had a lot of early starts.

    I saw only one mention of hard boiled eggs. You can make these in advance and refrigerate. They also make a good snack.

    sorry to push an old thread here but what kind of shake are we talking about here?

    Now I don't get up as early as he does but I need to desperately gain weight/muscle, I'm 120 5'7 17yrs old. I'm a thin/lean type of kid, skinny looking.

    and I want to know if making a shake everyday is a good thing and what to include in it?

    ah ok, are protein shakes beneficial if you drink them everyday? Even on days you don't workout?

    and How does a smoothie sound? Milk, bananas, strawberries, ice cream + whey protein

    To add to the good advice here. Add some fat. Fat delays gastric emptying of anything you eat it with and it will sustain you. You could add a handful of almonds.
