Sounds gross but you can also make eggs in the microwave in about a minute. Spray a glass bowl with pam or grease with a tiny bit of margerine or butter, crack in your egg, beat it a little bit - basically just to break the yoke a bit and toss in the micro for about 1 - 1.5 minutes. They will puff up - dont worry this is normal!
Throw in a low carb wrap or pita with a slice of ham or turkey and some green onion and you are on your way! ( you can actually put onion, spinach, cut up red or green pepper etc right in the egg before you microwave it for an omelet! Just beat the eggs more for that! ) Hope that helps

Getting back on track after #1 while trying for #2!

Check your local stores (even Costco!) for Kashi GoLean Cereal. It's granola-ish - and it packs 9 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber in 1 cup (and only 190 calories and 3 grams of fat)!!!

I've been trying to eat mini-meals throughout the day (keeps me from craving junk!) and this is sometimes one of my mini-meals. I'll bring it dry to work for an early morning snack when I know I'm going to need the protein and fiber kick. It's very satisfying.

I use South Beach as my weight loss plan and one thing they have is a ham or turkey "roll up". You can make those up the night before and take them with you if you have to.

Basically, take a Boston lettuce leaf, lay one slice of ham or turkey on it, add one scallion and 1 red pepper strip. Roll it up and munch. You can add mayo if you want, but I don't. Also, use low-fat products when you can to keep the calories down.

Hi,

My newest discovery....Cottage Cheese!
1/2 cup has 15g of protein!!!!
This is the regular 2% kind. You can also get 1% but I'm nost sure what the protein amount is.

Hope this helps!

Thanks! The boiled egg thing occurred to me this afternoon while I was driving down the road. I'm not generally hungry in the morning, so the South Beach bars would work and they have 3 more grams of protein than my magic Weetabix breakfast. I love oatmeal so I'll check the protein on that, too...we had some oatmeal with flax that was very very good.

Thanks so much for the input! I really appreciate it. As I learn more, I'll add to your ideas.

A couple of good options are the SouthBeach High Protein Cereal Bar it has 140 cal and 10g protein. The only draw back is they are small so if you are ravishing in the morning it probably wouldn't hold you over. If you have access to a microwave then instant oatmeal is great. I make plain instant with skim milk every morning. I add some splenda and cinnamon to give it a better flavor. The oatmeal will keep you full for a long time. You could also boil eggs ahead of time and eat them when you are on your way to work or wherever. I hope this helps, Good luck

Help! I am struggling with the protein...I can tell from tracking the past couple days that I am loading up on carbs but not getting enough protein.

Can you suggest some QUICK no cook hi protein breakfast options? You'll earn my undying gratitude (there's no spark gift for that, is there?).
