    Stuff that you make and divide up on Sunday--egg muffins, boiled eggs, cold chicken, cut up veggies, cottage cheese, etc.

    nuts. yogurt. Sometimes I make a breakfast muffins on the weekend and freeze them so I can grab it, heat it up in the microwave and spread a nut butter on it. I also pre-boil eggs on the weekend and during the week I eat it. Nutrigrain can have a lot of sugar ... protein bars (with fiber) might be better option if you're so crunched for time.

    Another vote for prepping on Sundays. Or make something the night before.

    Usually takes me just a few minutes to fry up an egg, toast a slice of bread and spread on a little avocado.. it's pretty much the time it takes for my son to get his shoes and coat on, I wrap it in a napkin and we're out the door.

    I know most people will hate on me for this but i have half a bagel with light garden vegetable cream cheese and a chunk of kolbassa for my breakfast before work. 175 calories total And ill bring a 140 calorie koshi granola bar to me with work for a morning sncak. I find carbs very satisfying, And the kolbassa has alot of protein so it gets me by :P

    It takes no time to fry 2 eggs Btwn 2 slices of low cal bread ( I use little big bread 110 cals for 2 slices). That's usually breakfast for me ... maybe 5 mins if I wash the pan too

    I have the same issue. On Sunday, I've been known to cook up a week's worth of oatmeal in my crock pot. Weekday morning, pop it into the microwave, add fruit and milk, and ready to eat!

    I really like the Fage brand individual serving Greek yogurts with fruit you can mix in. That plus a banana or some berries is a good mix of protein and fiber. Quick and easy too.

    Also you could make hard boiled eggs ahead of time and have that plus some fruit.

    I also like Thin Snackers rice cakes topped with cottage cheese. It takes a moment to construct and eat, but no cooking. Again I have this with some fruit.

    You could make yourself a breakfast burrito the night before (tortilla, scrambled eggs, cheese, bell pepper or spinach) and have it all done and cooked and stick it in the fridge overnight- then just pop in the microwave for like 30 seconds in the morning.

    Rolls with thinly sliced meat or fish and cheese, with a side of yogurt. This type of breakfast takes no real preparation and has been serving Europeans well for a very long time.

    I'm in the eggs+decent carb category for breakfast but when really pressed (or in hot weather like at the moment) I'll down a protein smoothie.

    Put stuff in a blender. Blend. Pour. Drink. Fill up blender with water to wash later. Maybe 3 minutes?

    Scrambled eggs take 50 seconds in the microwave.

    Soup, sandwich, leftovers - there is no rule that says you have to eat cereal or toast in the morning.
    Think about what you like to eat, plan ahead and get it ready to go in the morning.

    I've been having smoothies lately (great when it's a hot morning) - I get it ready the night before (takes about 2 minutes) and whack it on the blender in the morning (less than a minute). My current favourite is made up of rolled oats, milk and coffee (in the blender bottle in the fridge the night before so the oats soften) with a bit of banana and some walnuts all blended together in the morning.
    Then I take a peanut butter sandwich to have late morning, and leftovers for lunch in the afternoon. Quick and easy.
