It takes me less than 10 minutes to weigh out and eat 100g of Greek yogurt, mix in a little sugar and cinnamon, then add 35g of cereal. That's pretty quick if you ask me

I do a bit of measuring but it's very easy... I leave the 2 cups I need sitting out on the counter. I do 1/2 cup 0% greek yogurt, a whole apple cut up into small chunks, (that I do not weigh or measure, I just guesstimate for my tracker), and 1/3 cup granola.
You can also pre-make breakfast sandwiches in bulk and keep them in the fridge wrapped up. Then on the morning of, just wrap in a paper towel and microwave to heat up.
You can pre-portion out cereal or oatmeal. I make green smoothies the night before except when I'm really lazy. Then I'll do a protein bar. You could also portion out eggs (or whites) and veggies the night before in a microwave safe bowl and zap it in the morning.

Go for cereal or toast. Easy, light, and nutritious.

I'm generally not a big shake-proponent, but if you're one of those who doesn't care much for breakfast first thing, especially on your way to do active things, a protein shake can be a good way to get started without having to make an elaborate meal, or *chew*. You can even premake one the night before. Quick and easy portion control, doesn't make you have to eat something, and gives you the fuel you need to get your day started.

Frozen whole grain waffle with peanut butter and half a banana. Fiber, protein, good carbs and portable.
Or a granola or protein bar. You could also make ahead eggs, like hard boiled or those mini frittattas from the sparkrecipes site and have them with an english muffin or bagel thin or something.
Fruit is always good, too. So are sandwiches.

On days when I am pressed for time I grab a protein bar. I buy the Quest protein bars, and have really come to love the apple pie and cinnamon roll flavors. I'll usually eat one with half a banana or an apple!
