The last two day's i've been scrambling 4 egg whites and 1 whole egg and adding veggies to it. YUM! It keeps me full until lunch time, even through working out.

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...

Thanks for all the good input!

I realized I really like my Bear Naked Fit granola in greek yogurt with fruit, and that could become my "cereal" for cereal mornings.

I have a couple of boxes of cereal I need to use; I'll probably save those for Sunday mornings, when it matters less that I'm hungry early, because I'm in church and can't eat anyways, LOL.

Thanks again!

Instead of milk, I mix my granola with yogurt. This works especially well for me because I take my breakfast to work with me, so I can eat it after my morning workout at the gym.

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.

I would avoid all cereals - most of them are processed.
I don't eat them and that's partly because milk does not make me feel good.

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 make a bowl of oatmeal with an egg. You can't really taste the egg. Here is what I do:

1/3 c oats
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
- mix the above together first before adding the wet ingredients.

Okay, then add wet:
1 egg, cracked into the bowl directly
1/2 c skim milk

Microwave for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds.

I like to add a packet of stevia sweetener and/or a cut up banana too. This morning I added fresh blueberries! Yum.

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.

I have "cereal mornings," and I use a good fiber/low sugar Kashi cereal, but it is not high-protein. I find I get hungry real soon after AM cereal, and hunger can follow me into the afternoon.

What can I eat with my cereal (I usually have cereal, fruit, almond milk, and maybe some chopped nuts) to boost the protein and make it last longer (besides a boiled egg; can't stomach those).

BTW, I experience the same thing even if the cereal is high protein...

Thanks!
