    Question on the go breakfast suggestions?


    im looking for suggestions for something to eat on the go around breakfast time. i get my first meal (protein shake and oatmeal) at 630am. about 930 (when im classs) i get hungry again. im looking for suggestions for something other than a protein shake (if possible) that is portable and i can bring with me (even reheat if necessary). something around 20-30g protein and 30-40g complex carb. all ideas and input is greatly appreciated

    Morning snacks/breakfasts are the hardest for on the go situations. Here are some ideas, and something I used to do when I had long days in school:

    Protein Sources on The Go:
    1) Canned Chicken
    2) Hardboiled eggs
    3) Make your own protein bars
    4) Peanut/Almond butter - higher in fat
    5) Canned low fat ham - high sodium

    Complex Carb Sources:
    1) Whole grain tortilla
    2) Whole grain bagel
    3) English muffin
    4) Sweet potato - you can micro this.
    5) Granola
    6) Dry Kashi Cereal
    7) Micro Bag of Brown Rice - i know, it's not a morning meal.

    When I knew I was going to have a long day, I would carry a small thermal bag with an ice pack and carry everything and anything. This is the best way to go. You will have extra baggage, but hey, anything to not sacrifice that hard earned muscle.

    PS: How is the MA Nutrition program in U of H? I was thinking of applying, I have my BA of Science in Dietetics, and want to pursue my career and go beyond RD, LD. I want to focus a bit more on sports nutrition, which is my passion. How u like it there?

    Those are all good ideas. Or you could make your own protein bars......

    sandwich is always a good option. two slices of bread are usually around 30g of carbs and you can easily get 30g of protein from turkey or roast beef cold cuts. throw on some hot sauce/mustard or whatever floats your boat and you got a perfectly portable meal. works for me.
