I'm trying to come up with more ideas for breakfast. I typically eat at my desk in the morning, or sometimes on the way to work. I have only enough time in the morning to shower, dress, and grab my lunch before I leave for work and that doesn't leave me any time for breakfast, so I usually eat once I'm at work. I will admit to a huge weakness for breakfast foods - with the exception of pancakes. Fast-food being too tempting in the morning.
For the last 2 years, my standard breakfast has been yogurt and a granola bar. The only variation being the flavors I choose. I'm slowly starting to branch out, I'm brave enough to have an English muffin in place of the granola bar, but without resorting to frozen breakfasts (which are insanely unhealthy, as well as bland), I'm trying to get some new ideas together for breakfast.
I've come up with the following ideas:
1. Homemade breakfast sammie, using an English muffin and an egg. Cheese is optional.
2. Oatmeal with honey, and banana
3. Fresh strawberries (when in season) tossed with some coconut flake and half a bagel
4. Slice of banana nut bread or a muffin with some tea

I'm trying to come up with another option, but am not able to think of anything nutritious enough to be a good start to my day. Anyone have some ideas they wouldn't mind sharing with me? I don't mind cooking up something the night before, but in the morning, it's all I can do to make it out the door on time!

    I totally hear you on the breakfast thing! I'm a big fan of the Quaker Simple Harvest instant oatmeal packs for breakfast at work. Have you tried muffins? That's something you can bake ahead of time and even freeze. Mmmmm, muffins.

    I agree with the muffins. I like to eat homemade bran/applesauce muffins. I'm one of those who can't eat a big breakfast. I normally have cereal & a slice of toast or bagel. How about some french toast? You can make it the night before, then heat it at work. Top it with fresh fruit & honey.


  3. Thanks for the ideas. I have some good muffin recipes, (will post them later this week) and I adore French toast! Thanks for the great ideas!

    I used to keep a loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butter and jam in my office for quick breakfasts and lots of instant oatmeal!
