Now, I've seen numerous internet articles on fast breakfast ideas, but I have more restrictions than most.
This breakfast has to be:
- require no utensils (that means no knives, forks, spoons, cups, plates, etc...only a napkin or two, MAYBE)
- can be eaten discreetly, without making excessive noise
- requires no preparation
Honestly, the only reasonable things I can think of are plain bagels (that I can't eat, because of binge triggers issues), fruit (not filling enough, causing eventual binges later in the day), skipping breakfast (doesn't cause binges, but I hear it's bad for me for some reason?!), and juices (I prefer to eat my calories, not drink them...and it's too much sugar and not filling enough, anyways).
Why not have some sort of bar? ie granola bar, cereal bar. I find Larabars are really filling, although their flavor is strong and takes some getting used to. peanut butter and jelly are awesome!
Luna bars, Special K meal bars and zone bars are all very good as well.
Make yourself some kind of sandwich, maybe.
Peanut butter and honey sandwich? Or a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Those are my favorites!!!
Making stuff unfortunately qualifies as requiring preparation...that includes all sandwiches, wraps, omelets, and etc.
See, I'm trying to avoid processed bars and have tried them and am actually disgusted by the taste of nearly all of them--any other ideas? Thanks so far, though! :)
Why does it have to require no preparation (even 2 minutes it takes to throw peanut butter on bread and go)?
I don't think its possible to avoid something processed while at the same time avoiding any preparation of your own.
You could prepare a sandwich the night before....
Trail mix maybe? Either prepackaged or made when you have some spare time
Unfortunately this is for a specific situation that may last me at least a month--don't really want to go into details, sorry--and it will prevent me from having access to either a refrigerator or ANY utensils to get that peanut butter or jelly prepared, and I literally will not have time to make anything that requires microwaving or etc. Preparing anything beforehand will also not be possible, sorry!
Again, I'm SORRY this is the case, but constructive suggestions would be more welcome, thanks! ;P
It isn't that I was trying to be un-constructive. It just seemed strange to think of a situation where making a sandwich was not an option. I'd go with the trail mix then as your best bet since you don't like granola bars.
I know you mentioned plain bagels are a trigger food, what about really hearty whole grain bagels and breads? Something with multiple grains/seeds etc. might be more filling and satisfying than just a plain enriched bagel.
nuts and dried fruit
Dry Cereal, I like the Special K Low Fat Granola, It has a lot of nutrients requires no Prep, no refrigerator, no Utensils, and I eat it with very little noise. There are other great cereals out there too, Life, Cheerios, and Oatmeal Squares are other great choices.
I like the Fiber One Honey Clusters cereals. They are very filling and provide you with half of your daily fiber requirement.
If you have access to a spoon, you could eat apple sauce (you can get those with no added sugar, or with added calcium). If you don't have access to a spoon, you can "drink" it - my boyfriend does it all the time.
Nuts and dried fruits mixed with some wholegrain cereal, and drink plenty of water? That sets you up well and is tasty and cheap too.
And the fruit/nut bars are good too, I reccomend cliff or wallaby.
You have a protein shake, or a meal replacement shake along with some fruit.
Fruits, Fruits, and fruits. And yes, nuts or dried fruits. Will help you lose weight too:)
I really like fiber 1 bars (chocolate and oats). They're delicious.
Dried fruit apricots are really good with almonds!
I eat a Balance Bar and yogurt every morning for breakfast. I know you can't do the yogurt, but try the Balance Bar. It has a lot of protein so it'll keep you going for awhile.
WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE THAT YOU CAN BOIL WATER IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO AN STOVE OR A FIRE PLACE, YOU COULD HAVE QUAKER OAT MEAL, IN A CUP YOU COULD JUST DRINK IT. iT HIGH ON FIBER AND LOW IN CALORIES AND VERY FILLING.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
