Have you ever made protein muffins? They are quick and easy, and you can add fruit as well as the protein to make a variety.

Another thing I used to do when I was working is to put a slice of ham into a muffin cup, add some veggies like mushrooms, etc, and pour some mixed eggs on top. Cook and cool, then freeze. They don't take long to thaw so you could grab one from the freezer and let it thaw while getting ready, then grab and go.

I found a great recipe for Veggie Quiche Cups to Go (link here: https://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=3322675) which I make in mini-muffin pans and freeze. I can pop 4 in the microwave for about 20 seconds, put in a small container, grab a piece of fruit, and I'm out the door. Cooking a big batch and freezing in portions makes it so much easier. For the New Year, I also cleaned out and organized my small freezer that's on top of my fridge. Happy New Year!

A banana with a piece of cheese. The cheese slows down the insulin spike, so you won't be hungry as soon as you would be without the protein and fats in the cheese.

I try to make an extra five minutes at home to eat a little something like eggs or oatmeal or fruit it prevents me being distracted while driving and helps with digestion. However, I have taken a smoothie with me in the car when in a big rush.

To eat in the car - smoothie would be the easiest thing for me. But that's more like a snack so I'd have morning snack to have at work later that's easy to eat like an energy bar, energy bites, fruit salad, plain instant oatmeal with fruit, boiled eggs, pinwheels, sandwich, wrap

Make the oatmeal or prep the smoothie the night before. Or simply any leftovers can be a good breakfast, doesn't have to be a traditional meal.

Baked oatmeal--before baking add fruit like berries or cherries and press some slivered almonds or other nuts on top. Make a big batch and freeze it in individual servings--grab one serving and pop it in the microwave--take and go if you have too!

You can also make eggs loaded with veggies in muffin tins and freeze in individual servings. I do this in a large deep square pan (sauté the veggies stove top then add eggs with seasonings and cook until the eggs start to cook--pop in oven to finish). I make 9 servings at once.

I tend to batch prepare breakfast on Sunday because I am out the door in the morning. I eat a paleo diet so this typically is a crustless quiche (eggs, kale, mushrooms, shallots etc). I actually like this cold better then warm. I package individually and eat on my way to work. I sometimes have leftovers (meatballs, sliced chicken etc) with an avocado or something that is simple to just munch on my drive or at my desk if its not a busy morning.

Oatmeal and fruit. Oatmeal cooks in microwave in 2 minutes and simmers while I get ready. I always do this when I travel and leave early to get out of the city before traffic jam sets in, and I eat it at a rest station.

If I really wouldn't have time to prepare breakfast then it would be granola bars, yogurt and fruit. But it hasn't happened in the past 6 years as I love to have breakfast peacefully, so I always make time for it.

Pretty much like SLENDERELLA ; )

Instant oatmeal only takes 2 minutes in the microwave. You can get it in 100 calorie pre-measured paper packets that can be used to measure the water, too. You can soak it in almond milk or real milk overnight and eat it without even heating. Old Fashioned oatmeal takes 6 minutes in the microwave, but will soak okay if you want more fiber -- seems to stay with me longer, although I like the taste of the instant better. You can add cinnamon, various sweetening agents (syrup, diet syrup, brown sugar, Splenda, Splenda blend, stevia, sugar, agave) , fruit, cocoa powder with or without peanut butter, etc, although I like it just plain, too.

I've eaten yogurt in the car, too. You can eat with a spoon if you have lots of lights in your commute. Or you can add a little milk/almond milk and drink it.

Eating oatmeal out of a cup in the car can be done. Put a towel on your lap. Have napkins/paper towels. But taking the time to eat at home may pay off. See if you can rearrange things to try!

Best wishes.

for me it's not so much WHAT I prepare, it's HOW it's packaged. Whether it's h/b eggs, fruit, crustless quiche, pb w/veggies - it needs to be bagged and ready to pick up and go. A little prep work goes a long way for me in maintaining a healthy eating regimen.

The fastest I can do for breakfast is natural peanut butter toast with 1/2 of a banana, drizzled with agave nectar and a glass of almond milk. Greek yogurt, a little Agave nectar and some fresh fruit. Or maybe oatmeal or scrambled eggs.

I eat the most in the morning. I would find it difficult for the day to eat on the run. If I don’t eat a solid breakfast I end up fighting hunger the rest of the day and often over eat from snacking. I would wake up earlier to eat better or do prep the night before so I could eat. Gaining control over your diet is the #1 way to succeed in weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight long term

Hard boiled eggs are easy and quick.

Keep some fresh fruit on hand, a couple eggs, and simple breakfast is simple!

Since I workout in the morning before work, I like to have a protein shake after my workout as my breakfast on those days. I've tried a few products and am a fan of the 1st Phorm brand. I mix my powders with a berries and/or a banana, some unsweetened almond milk, blend, and shake is ready to drink while I get ready for work.

I would also encourage you to make the time to eat while not driving (10 minutes is all it takes, if you make your breakfast the night before!).

That said, I also understand the need for a quick meal! My favorite breakfast sandwich works pretty well as a grab-and-eat-in-the-car. You can make it the night before and wrap in wax paper. In the morning, just microwave it 20-30 seconds, then flip, and microwave another 20-30 seconds.

1 toasted whole-grain sandwich thin
1 egg patty (see below)
1 slice pepperjack or other cheese

Egg patty: Heat a 9" skillet over medium-low. Beat together 1 egg and 2 egg whites, plus salt/pepper or hot sauce (my fav!). Grease the skillet (I use a little butter, but you could also use non-stick spray or oil). Pour the egg into the skillet. Cover with a lid that fits the pan, and turn off the heat. Leave on the shut-off burner 5-10 minutes while you toast your sandwich thin. Once egg is fully cooked (not wet on top), gently fold in half twice and slide onto one half of the sandwich thin. Top with the cheese, and top with the other half. Wrap immediately in wax paper.

By itself, or even with an apple or a baby cucumber, or a smoothie, this makes a good, quick breakfast.

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.

I would encourage you to make time to eat your breakfast at home. It doesn't have to be a full cooked breakfast. I often eat mine while I am making a drink. Usually I weigh out my granola into a cup (hate eating it with other stuff) and eat it from that as I am pottering around, and the same with the banana I usually have with it.

If I eat in the car, I have usually got cut up apple and pear in a snap-lock bag, and sometimes a healthy protein nut bar (note, not all protein nut bars are healthy so you really need to check the labels). Sometimes I might have some cut up cucumber and cherry tomatoes with me, and occasionally I might have a healthy non-messy sandwich. BUT when eating/driving, make sure that you don't get distracted by reaching, etc. because that is unsafe.
