How about the sausage & cheese "muffins" or some quiche-to-go. They are made ahead in muffin pans, then all you have to do is heat them in the microwave...quick & simple. With the quiche-to-go you simply put whatever ingredients you like (spinach, broccoli, onion, peppers, etc...) into scrambled eggs, top with cheese and bake in muffin cups until set. The sausage & cheese muffins are basically the same with sausage added in.
Hope that helps some!

Try some ham and egg quiche cups to go.

Boiled ham slices cut into l/3 placed in muffin cups sprayed with olive oil
saute chopped onions and pepper (if you like) add to 1 cup of egg substitute or
whip enough whole eggs to make 1 cup. Mix together and pour into muffin pans,add some hot sauce, salt and pepper (optional)before you pour.
bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. These can be frozed and reheated in microwave. Makes approx. 6

This is kinda weird but it works for me... I grab a few pieces of swiss or provolone cheese and wrap some roastbeef inside... yum... Do you like tomato juice? That helps with those juice cravings. Hope that helps ya alittle. Smile

South Beach Diet makes and sells meal replacement bars. they are a good size and I like them better than any granola bar. I live in a small town but our grocery store carries them so you should be able to find them. they are in the diet area where slim fast products are sold. I recommend the peanut butter bar that is dipped in a bit of chocolate!

I bake eggs, splenda and cinnamon in mini muffin cups. I freeze them and then re heat them with a little spread. It only takes 5 minutes to cook eggs. I do that in the morning and place in a container. Top with black beans (from the can), salsa and avocado (or guacamole) and you're good to go. I also cook a pack of turkey bacon ahead of time. Freeze and reheat 2 in a microwave when you want to eat them. Put tomatoe slices at the bottom of a tupperware container. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place sliced turkey and top with non or low fat swiss cheese. I do a couple of layers. Microwave till cheese melts and eat. Some morning I just grab a couple string cheese if I'm in a hurry but all you really need is 8 minutes to make a quick meal. Some nights we have italian sausage and spaghetti sauce. I'll take that and make an omelette out of it. Chicken, beef...whatever left overs you have can make a good omelette. I use egg whites to cut back on the fat though. Personal choice. Good luck!

I sometimes eat ricotta pancakes for breakfast, which actually taste like french toast. Just mix 1/4 cup ricotta cheese, 1 egg, 1 pack artificial sweetener, and 1 tsp of vanilla. I spray them just a tad with parkay spray and use about a tablespoon of sugar free syrup for topping (sugar free fruit spreads are good too). I haven't tried making them ahead and reheating, but have heard others say that they held up well for them. If you try them, make them silver dollar sized, because they are fragile and come apart easily if they are too heavy.

I think hard boiled eggs is probably the easiest thing to do. I boil a bunch of them over the weekend and then can have them on various days throughout the week. Sometimes I'll have that along with either a soy sausage (b/c I can heat it quickly in the microwave) or a piece of turkey bacon that was cooked the day before. You could also add raw veggies like yellow peppers or celery or something. Not a very fancy looking breakfast, but it is definitely *easy* and works well.

Smile I also like to use the shakes... Walmart has the best selection at the best price. Be sure they are low carb. The vanilla and chocolate are awesome the strawberry is a little chalky.IMHOLaughing

I was really disappointed with the SBD granola bars...they have high fructose corn syrup in the first few ingredients! (I was looking at the "Sweet Nut Creations" peanut granola bars.) The total sugar per bar is only 2 g lower than the less expensive regular granola bars that are essentially the same! That is compared to Nature Vally "Sweet and Salty Nut Peanut" granola bars as well as the similar store brand product. I felt a little misled by that.

Thanks for the warning. That's rather odd.

I find the Quich cups the best quick breakfast on the go! I have reheated them in the toaster oven, or I let them get to room temp and just eat them that way. I make a large batch and freez half of them and the rest go into baggies with 2 in each and that's breakfast. I do mostly spinach low fat swiss onion & mushroom but you can add a lot of varieity to them I always use the egg beaters and the hot sauce gives it a good flavor with out making it too spicy! Good Luck

serving size for dry ingredients
Check the food label, it should tell you. Rice tends to have higher calories. Usually it's 1/4 cup dry and about 150-200 calories
