I stir up a qucik bowl of porridge (only takes about 5 minutes) and chop up a medium banana and mix it up. Delicious, and keeps me satisfied allll the way til lunch, whilst also keeping up my energy levels cos it's a slow energy release. x
I do a piece of fruit and cheese a lot. I only have one little one, he's 2.5. He loves to eat fruit and cheese, too. He gets an ounce of regular colby jack and an apple or banana most mornings. I eat an ounce of low fat mild cheddar, or a low fat string cheese, and a nectarine or apple. It works well for us. Sometimes we have cereal instead. This is, of course, assuming we are running on a schedule that includes breakfast. Some days we don't get up until after 1030 am, and then just start with lunch.
get some good grain or wheat bread (i recommend the nature's own brand they have a large variety of great bread) and some strawberry jelly. probably a squeeze bottle type would work well for you. It spreads easier. you can also add some peanut butter and make a PB/J. WHo doesn't love PB/J?
II Corin 10:5 You have given me the power to pull down all my old mental strongholds and take control of every wayward thought, imagination and impulse.
Lord, please help me tear down the mental strongholds that have caused me to overeat in the past. In their place I ask you to help me form new, healthier mindsets. Ones which will help me honor the temple which you have given me. In Jesus' name. Amen
Sounds like that would keep you busy! If I'm in a rush, I normally just grab a piece of fruit and munch on it... but I normally have cereal too. I would suggest a fiber one bar or a granola bar of some kind... they're quick to eat. To get in that extra calories, you could have a glass of milk. But that's just me because I love milk, haha.

I need a quick and easy breakfast too. What I normally have is either a yogurt and a handful of almonds or a Kashi granola bar and a handful of almonds. If I don't have almonds, I have a string cheese or a banana instead.
I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am. The only time it's too late to change yourself is when you're dead. Until then, you're simply making excuses or lying to yourself.
I too keep 1 dozen hard boiled eggs on hand each week. I always keep a bowl of fresh fruit many kinds to fit my daily moods. I can grab an egg and a banana, boom sugar and protien to run on. I too always keep yogurt and grapenuts to sprinkle in, with a slice of canadian bacon. Whole wheat english muffin with a Tablespoon of PB, grain and protien. I am a big protien fan. I think it hold my hunger down longer than some items.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance. Remember Dance like no one is watching!!
You can make these in advance and refrigerate or freeze them:
Toasted Whole wheat english muffin 1 egg (or you could use egg substitute cooked) 1 slice canadian bacon 1/2 slice of american cheese (I "fold" off the corners to make a smaller square and then use those 4 pieces on the next one.)
Wrap them in a paper towel and put it in a sandwich bag. Reheat it in just the paper towel for about 30 seconds.
Look at my food log for July 24th. I've modified it a bit ... the fat free cheese kind of explodes so it's not the best. The way I have it on my log it's 259 calories and super-yummy!!!

--- Jen --- Be kinder than necessary. Everyone is fighting some kind of battle.
I refuse to tip-toe through life, just to arrive safely at death.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting '...holy sh*t ...what a ride!'
I have two small boys that are 3 and 4 months and have a hard time hitting my daily calories because I can't find time for breakfast. PLEASE help with any ideas that can get me at least 200-300 calories for breakfast! Thanks in advance!
