Protein and oatmeal. I find that a big bowl of oatmeal with fruit will keep me going for the morning. Quick rolled oats.

Make a microwaved Rolled Oats - it only takes a couple minutes, and if you make it real thick with water, you can thin it down with milk, to the consistency you want, after cooking, which will make it cooler to eat. Have a banana with it. That should last you for quite a long time.

The smoothie is also a good idea, but you can also bulk-make them and freeze them in single serves.

Are you able to slip some nuts or dried fruit into a little bag and put in your pocket so that you can nibble on them at work? Some places will allow this, but others won't.

Also, you could make some sandwiches the night before and put in the fridge. Make sure that the bread is quality wholegrain, and that you have protein on the bread, too. That is just a grab and go then.

I find that having protein in the morning helps tide me over until noon. My favorite morning protein is eggs. You could have your smoothie, and maybe eat a few nuts. They are very sustaining, and the fat content keeps hunger at bay.

No matter how slow you go, you are STILL lapping everybody on the couch.

I agree with the smoothie. Eat a good breakfast and then have a smoothie for lunch.

What about making a fast smoothie the previous night to carry next morning: banana, nut butter, oatmeal, milk, cinnamon. Or any other smoothie that satisfies you.

Maybe eat a decent size breakfast before work that will carry you through until you get a break.

Hi all! I work in a busy breakfast resturuant where it is almost impossible to eat on schedule, especially on the week ends. What can I do to replace or adjust to getting all my calories in. I feel so tired about 1:30 pm and I know that it is because I haven't eaten.
