Try a Morningstar Farms sausage (actually Vegetable Protein) patty on a light english muffin with some hummus. I put the patty in the micro for 30 seconds then flip it over and put it on the muffin with about a tablespoon of hummus. Then back in the microwave for 15 seconds. Yummy.

I find tuna to be versatile. I like it plain or mixed with one or more of the following:
- salsa
- onions, olive oil, vinegar, and garlic powder
- eggs in quiche muffins
- mayo and egg yolk in devil eggs
- shredded spinach (or any chopped veggie such as celery or cucumber)
- greek yogurt
- mustard

I have never had tuna and eggs to me it sounds gross but everyone is different.
I would put tuna on a whole grain wrap
You could also do turkey on whole wheat bread.
Breakfast does not have to be breakfast foods

Overnight oatmeal, there are a lot of variations out there. I like putting it together before I go to bed and it is waiting on me when I get up. One of my favorite "recipes" is 1/4c uncooked old fashioned oats, 1/4c plain fat free greek yogurt, 1/3c vanilla almond milk, 2Tbsp coconut, 2Tbsp sliced almonds and 1/2c chopped fresh pineapple. Mix it all up and pop it in the fridge. Keeps me full all morning.

I normal can last from breakfast to lunch without a problem. The thing that is different now is the level of physical activity of my job. I usually would take a break and grab some thing but we are so busy that I don't have time to. So, it's just not feasible at this time. Hopefully work will slow down soon and I can get back to my normal schedule. I will try to add more to my breakfast and see if that works.

I've never thought about tuna for breakfast. I would assume it would be mixed with eggs? Any suggestions on what else to do with it?

All-bran muffins. Use the recipe on the side of the box with the "healthy" substitutions. I leave out most of the sugar and add blueberries. Sometimes I add protein powder in order to bulk up the protein, and sometimes i add shredded carrots and zucchini in place of the other liquid.
They stay frozen. I pop them in the microwave and eat them on the go. They are tasty, extremely filling, and healthy.

I'll cook a big pot of oatmeal and pour I one cup full into individual plastic containers to take to work. I don't mind eating cold oatmeal.

Or, I'll have some fruit and yogurt.

Or some cottage cheese and mandarin oranges or peaches.

Are you going too long between breakfast and lunch?
What about adding more to your current breakfast such as yogurt/fruit?
Would you be able to eat a quick morning snack such as nut butter spread on a banana which would take 5 minutes to eat.

Greek yogurt with fruit and a few almonds is the quick go-to. Oatmeal with almonds and fruit is always healthy.

I need protein for breakfast or forget it. my normal breakfast is greek yogurt with fresh berries.

All the so called "secrets of success"will not work ... unless you do.

I need some quick and easy breakfast ideas for the weekdays. I normally have waffles with peanut butter or a quick breakfast sandwich. Right now we are super busy at work and I 'm always hungry by 10 o'clock. I normally don't have time to stop and grab a snack. Any ideas on filling breakfasts that don't take much time to prepare? I'm not a morning person but I'm okay with preping the night before.
