i boil water for my tea..... 1/2 cup rolled oats old fashioned 1/4 berries pour boiling water over to cover, i let it and my tea sit for 5 minutes then i add 1 scoop of non rsbt whey protien unflavored to it mix it in.. nutmeg or cinnamon.
I never eat cereal in the morning. I have the same problem. I save it for a snack in the evening. I have to have a high protein, low or no simple carb breakfast. I also have started using unsweetened almond milk. It makes a great smoothie with whey powder and frozen or fresh fruit.

I find I'm the same cereal doesn't fill me up. Since trading to egg white omlettes or meat and nut breakey's I tend to avoid the 10am burnout...
There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness - Carl Jung
If the cereal is high protein and you feel the same maybe it isn't necessarily more protein that you need, are you getting enough fat in the breakfast? You need that too as for the other poster that doesn't drink milk, there are many alternatives now a days. There's a plethora of nut milks, hemp milk, coconut milk. You might want to consider giving them a try. As for cereals - I do agree with you there. A bowl of "cereal" for me is berries with nuts and seeds in homemade almond milk.
You can add ground flaxseed to your cereal for a little more protein, fiber, and omega-3's.
For side dishes, cottage cheese is really high in protein. Yogurt can be too, or you could scramble an egg. There's many ways you can add protein to a smoothie too, with a little tofu or extra milk and yogurt.
I never eat cereal, I get hungry an hour after eating it. My breakfast of choice is Greek Yogurt with fruits mixed in. I buy frozen fruits, but in the summer I enjoy fresh from the Farmers Market. It satisfies me till lunch. That's ok if you like yogurt. I love it.
