If you are a fan of breakfast cereals, try replacing a sugary cereal with one high in fiber. I find that when I eat Mini Wheats for breakfast, it actually keeps me full and prevents me from snacking before lunch time. Add some sweetness by choosing frosted flavors, or adding fruit.

On mornings when I know I'm going to be rushed, the night before I will put EVERYTHING out. For example, if I want to have a fried egg on an english muffin with laughing cow cheese (a favorite breakfast of mine), I'll put out the small fry pan and in it I will put the PAM spray and a spatula. Then I will get a small plastic container and place one egg, one wedge of cheese, and my english muffin (after I slice it).
Then, in the morning, I can make a very healthy and portable breakfast in under five minutes (or as long as it takes for the muffin to toast and the egg to cook). And it is a protein-rich and high-fiber breakfast, so it will last me through to lunch without getting snacky!
