Overnight oats (also called refrigerator oats). I've been living off them lately but they're lovely and you can make so many different combos/flavours.
The basic recipe is 1/4 cup old fashioned oats (or quick), 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (you can also use light ricotta cheese or cottage cheese), 1/4 cup milk or milk alternative (I actually do 1/3 cup).
But you can add anything to it you'd add to your oatmeal and yogurt. Just combine the night before and put it in your fridge overnight in a Tupperware container and tada! It's ready to grab and go in the morning and delicious! You can add flaxseed, oat bran, wheat bran etc. for added fiber. I like wheat bran because it doesn't add much to total calories but gives you a lot of fiber but I also use ground flax. You'll get plenty of protein from the Greek yogurt (or cheese) and milk if you use cow or soy. Add whatever fruit you like (unsweetened applesauce would work too) and spices, extracts, nuts. I add cinnamon and nutmeg to nearly everything.
Mine usually run about 200-250 cals (I eat a small breakfast because I workout in the AM) and with they added fiber, are very satisfying. If you need even more fiber, do berries.
Here's a few recipes to get you started:

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
