I don't get hungry till I have been at work for an hour or 2, so I need some grab and go ideas! I don't have access to a microwave in the morning either. Thanks, Nancy
Take Oatmeal in a short Thermos to work with you! It's quick to make, fills you up and is very good for you. My brother makes oatmeal with rice milk (you can use whichever milk you like - soy, almond, etc.) and take it to work in a thermos. It stays warm for about 6 hours. I also just started making it for my husband - old fashioned oats or the TJ's Organic Multigrain Cereal which is like oatmeal but has other grains as well, using rice milk, and put it in a thermos and when he goes to have it around 4 hrs. later he tells me it's still warm.
Fruit! Vegetables! You can take them in a bag, or blend them into a delicious smoothie and drink that throughout the day. I personally eat fruit for breakfast. If you have the discipline, to stick with it, i guarantee you within a week you'll like the results.. I never felt better in my life. If there's one thing you can benefit most from, it would be eating more fruits and vegetables, ideally raw.. But people now a days probably think I'm crazy..
I juice carrots and apples or make a smoothie from pineapple, grapes and kale (you can make baggies of this up and put in the freezer until you want to make a smoothie then just take it out and mix it up) and drink it on the way to work. I usually don't get hungry until 2 in the afternoon because there are so many vitamins in it. I make my own fresh whole wheat bread once a week, so other days I just have a couple slices of toast and some grapes, a banana or an apple and eat it on the way to work. Home made granola works good too.
Make your own breakfast bars.
Mashed bananas for binder, oats and a bit of flour for substance - then add nuts and dried fruit to your liking and bake. I add chocolate chips and shredded coconut for sweeter bars.
