Hi guys

I'm sure this has been gone over and over (and I've posted in food and nutrition as well as not sure which board is the right one), but...

I work an office job where I am on the go a lot in the mornings, with not a lot of time to prepare a breakfast. I'd love to find some recipes that I could make batches of that I could then pick up a portion of each morning (eg healthy breakfast muffin or something?)

I don't want to rush my food down before I leave the house as I have an irritable bowel which is worst in the mornings and could mean me missing my bus, so I tend to leave the house without eating and eat at work, where there is only a microwave. I've had enough porridge as I can stand, esp in summer, and cereal bars seem to be calorific or not filling.

Any ideas/recipes very welcome :)

Thanks in advance

Martha

- greek yogurt with granola, nuts, berries (and if you're feeling decadent, a few chocolate chips)

- hard boiled eggs with fruit

- mini quiche cups you can cook ahead of time, freeze, and then just micro when you need em ... here's an example recipe (http://www.eggbeaters.com/recipes-Crustless-Ham-and-Swiss-Mini-Quiches-5510)

- blended shakes (see greenmonstermovement.com for awesome recipes)

- ground turkey with veggies & some cheese, again you can make this ahead of time

- protein pancakes!! (http://toneitup.com/blog.php?Protein-Pancakes-Low-carb-low-fat-and-delicious-1973/)

hope this helps ya! :)

I love this recipe!

Larger bowl: mix 1.25 cup flour, 1.5 cup oats, 1 tsp baking powder, .5 tsp baking soda, and .5 tsp ground cinnamon
Medium bowl: mix 1 egg, .25 cup brown sugar, half a package of silken tofu, 1 cup unsweetened applesauce

Add medium bowl to the larger bowl and fold/mix. Then add 1.5 cups fruit (I use 1 cup blueberries and .5 cup raspberries). Or you could add veggies even.

Bake and enjoy! I don't pay much attention but probably 350 for 20 minutes? I take them out when they smell/look done (typical guy cooking technique I'm sure).

You can tinker with ingredients (add protein powder? ground flax? etc.), but it's a pretty good tasting and healthy muffin (and they freeze well).

Do a search in the Community for "oatmeal cherry pie". I posted a very quick, easy, tasty oatmeal breakfast idea.
