Any good ideas for breakfast that will hold me untill lunch??? I end up starving by 9:30 a.m., then sneaking food at my desk when the kids aren't looking. What do you do?

I found that protein, like a few slices of turkey or a hard boiled egg on bread (a sandwich!!) along with a glass of milk, works best. Of course, I'm nibbling on crackers as I type.

the Quaker Breakfast Cookies--they are large and filling and hold me over well. They may have added protein but don't have that strong odor/taste of the regular protein bars. I buy the Oatmeal Chocolate chip--there are several varieties. It is also handy becasue it eats like a cookie too (one hand-no utensils).

Lots of times I eat some cheese cubes and a granola bar in the morning. The cheese helps me stay full (usually) until lunch.

I hate eating breakfast-- I'm just not hungry in the morning. I used to keep a container of raw almonds behind my desk. Like PPs said, protein really helps and almonds are full of it. I could grab a handful whenever I started feeling hungry. My lunch was pretty early (10:50), so a couple handfuls in the morning usually kept me going.

I also had a small fridge in my room last year, so I kept cheese cubes and yogurt in there. I never snuck food. I ate in front of the kids and it never bothered them or anyone else. I also had a morning prep so I could grab something then if necessary.

breakfast

I have to eat breakfast even when I'm not hungry (my mother instilled that in me very early) but I find that yogurt is best in keeping me full until lunch (which is at 11:30 at my school ) Cereal and toast are my other choices and they don't have the staying power of yogurt.

I don't like most breakfast foods, but if I don't eat before I leave the house, then I am starving by 9o. I try to keep English muffins on hand; sometimes I toast it and then put peanut butter on it. This keeps me full until lunch time. Also, I have toasted it and put ham or turkey on it; this also holds me until lunch.

If I am really hungry, I will sometimes snack in front of the kids.

Clip to ScrapBook #8

are the only things that keep me going from 6:30 to 10 ( as PP said, egg, smoked ham, even duck-liver pate on dark bread). Then I have a mall sandwich ( smoked ham usually on whole grain bread). I have hypoglycemia so I have to eat every 3 hours usually... I told my kids at the beginning of the year that I might need to eat in class. Usually a handful of cereals. I usually give each of them a few pieces ( like 3-4) and they like it a lot. But when I have to eat more, they're ok with it. I also drink all day long...

It is VERY high-fiber - five grams per slice, filling, and delicious. Toast it and put two ounces of neufchatl cheese (low fat cream cheese) on it, then top it with a single serving container of apple sauce. This amounts to five weight watchers' points and tastes like a cheese/apple danish. It fills me up and doesn't make me feel like I'm on a diet! If you are not dieting, use real cream cheese and apple butter instead of apple sauce or add a slice of smoked salmon and some tomato instead of the sweet.

eggs

Like PP's have said, protein is the thing that will keep you feeling full. Eggs do it for me. I use the "egg beaters" chive and cheese liquid in the morning. It just takes no time to cook up into scrambled eggs. With a piece of whole grain toast, you are unlikely to be hungry before noon. Another thing that has really helped me is precooking breakfast foods. When I buy a dozen eggs I immediately hard boil 6 of them. The easiest way is to put them in water, bring to a boil, remove pot from heat (still covered) for 12 minutes then run cold water over them, and peel. Perfect hard boiled eggs. Also, I buy turkey bacon (half the fat of bacon, loads of protein) and cook it all up at one time, with fresh ground pepper. I keep it in paper towel in a ziplock in the fridge. For a fast breakfast, I can grab an egg or two and 4 slices of bacon. Its even easy to eat in the car. A smoothie with skim milk, low fat fruited yogurt, a few berries, a half banana, and some ice is a real treat, and very filling and healthy. I think I'll make one now, for lunch Yum!

Luna Bar

I eat a Luna Bar and I could go all day...
I do eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast and then a Luna bar later in the morning and I'm not even hungry at lunch...
My favorite is the lemon zest...
They are a little bit more expensive == about a dollar a bar - but well worth it I think

apples are very filling

I rush through meals each day, except for dinner, since I don't have much time to eat at school and I eat very little. I eat an apple daily, and it really provides bulk to keep me from going hungry. I also eat a container of yogurt.

Have you tried those Dannon Frusion Smoothies? They're SO yummy, and they're filling! You can eat a piece of cinnamon toast and/or a hard boiled egg with it, and you'll be good for go for a while!

I love peanut butter and banana sandwiches for breakfast. They're very filling and healthy. They're quick and easy to make too. I usually have a glass of orange juice with it.

plain yogurt with bananas and granola (which contains sunflower seeds and almonds). I also stir in a little flax oil. It is delicious and holds me until lunch. And for some reason I never get tired of it.

oatmeal

I do Quaker Oatmeal. I don't like the individual serving packets so I do the 1 minute oats from the round canister. I put 1/4 cup of oatmeal and 1/2 cup of water in a bowl, usually with either raisins or dried cranberries. I then microwave it on high for 1 min. 20 sec. It comes out just right for me.

Grape Nuts

If you aren't diabetic, grape nuts cereal is a good filling breakfast. In the cold months, you can add milk and heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds. It's even better warm.

Breakfast is usually either of Carnation instant breakfast, either one of the liquid cartons or powder poured into a carton of milk. If not that, then sliced turkey rolled up and cheese cubes with juice.

snack time

Instead of trying to sneak the food, why don't you have allow your students to have snack time? They might be hungry too. It will be a win win situation. Just be sure that they only bring in healthy snacks and water bottles. Good luck!
