I have a very long commute and like to hard boil eggs so that I can have one in the morning. Sometimes I do not have the chance to do that. I was wondering what are some other options for protein in the morning.

All suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!

Peanut Butter! I have a loaf of bread and jar of peanut butter at my desk. Every morning I have a slice for a good source of morning protien and carbs to really jump start the day, Im vegetarian so I keep close count on my protien! Peanut butter feels like breakfast too so that helps... Good luck! If you dont like peanuts theres always almond butter and nutella (hazelnut) too!

Milk is my most consistent form of morning protein. Greek yogurt is another good one and I'm with ctberger on the peanut butter thing- look for high protein bread to put it on and you'll another boost.

I take a carton of egg whites to work. 2 oz of that and 3 wedges of Laughing Cow cheese make a quick and tasty omelette in the microwave. The carton lasts me two weeks.

I like cheese. I also hardboil a bunch of eggs for the week so that I have them to grab on my way out.

+1 on the Greek Yogurt - I like mine with (artificial) honey and 1Tbsp chopped walnuts. I agree with lena on Fage and Chobani - their flavor and texture are the best. 1c = 23g protein, plus the little bit from the walnuts.

I've also taken to just drinking some of my whey protein in the morning - mine's a fruity tropical flavor, so it doesn't feel super-heavy; I also like mine to be fairly diluted so as little as 1/2-3/4 of a scoop in a big 32oz glass of cold water works really well for me. 23g protein per full scoop in mine, 90 calories with 0 fat or carbs. THAT is easy and fast!

If you mean that you actually eat during your commute, that would be a much better option for you (if it's a driving commute). A bowl of delicious Greek yogurt is not very steering-wheel friendly.

Too bad they don't make a Greek yogurt version of GoGurt. Smile

step 1: put peanut butter in zip lock bag.
step 2: cut small hole in bag.
step 3: squeeze into mouth.

Hardboiled eggs last many days. Why not boil them the night before. Also easy to eat in the car...as long as you peel them at home! And you can get drinking yogurts but watch the sugar. Or make your own by mixing greek yogurt with milk, then put in a bottle.

I'm more concerned with the "roof-of-the" mouth effect one gets while eating peanut butter. I foresee this as a distraction while driving. LOL

Great suggestions. You could try making high protien pancakes (from any bodybuilding recipe) and take them to go. Maybe even slather it with peanut butter and roll them up. Another is making homemade protein bars or egg/meat/veggie based fritatta squares. The pancakes and fritattas should freeze well. Lately I've been adding vanilla protein powder to my oatmeal to boost the protein content. If you have time, it's pretty quick.

I LOVE the peanut butter in a baggie idea! fantastic Smile personally i hard boil a dozen eggs at a time so they are always ready. I eat left over chicken, steak, burgers, you name it - I always make a little bit extra at dinner. I also like cottage cheese - good bang for the buck - high protein low carbs, On the weekend I treat my self to an omlet but I never have tiem for this during the week. As a last resort (although daily during this heat wave) I mix 1 scoop of GNC ISO whey protein, 1/2 cup of milk and a hand full of ice - delicious!!!!
