    Ive discovered the magic that is Quaker Simple Harvest apple cinnamon oatmeal and a scoop of ISS Complete Whey banana creme :drool:, but I'm having trouble figuring out what else I can leave here at the office to eat when I end up getting hungry around 9 or 10am that'll have some protein in it.

    Any suggestions?

    whenever I make dinner, I just cook up some extra meat and bring it to work with me. Otherwise, I just leave protein, jerky and nuts at the office

    dropped it because of the sodium?

    Get a food dehydrator and make your own, and if you want, you can try leaner meats too.

    Shakes are arrite but a bit much cleanup... we don't have much of a kitchen area, so that's the problem. We have a cooler with hot/cold water, so instant oatmeal in a styrofoam bowl, plastic spoon, is easy to make and just toss after I'm done.

    Yeah... I just can't think of many "breakfast" foods besides eggs that have any protein, they're all carb for the most part (cereals, breads, etc)

    It's not a no carb thing, but most breakfast stuff is ALL carb. I've been throwing whey in oatmeal... I think that was somewhere around the first sentence I posted in this thread. ;)

    meat & rice is a little too intense to eat like an hour after I wake up? :dunno: I eat that shit all day, just wanted something to change it up a bit.

    just make a shake :dunno:

    if you have hot/cold water, all you need to do to the bottle is rinse it out w/ hot water and dry it w/ a paper towel

    otherwise, if you have access to a fridge/cooler, make protein shakes at home and pour 'em into old water bottles or something... then just chuck 'em when you're done

    I'll do that if I hit up Rutt's or something, but I can't do it regularly, and that's a pain in the ass to prep when I normally roll out of bed, run thru the shower on the way out the door, and drive 1.5 miles to work. Not saying I can't eat it, just I'm not usually hungry enough to want hamburger/rice/eggs, just something small like a bowl of cereal or oatmeal, or maybe a piece of fruit... all carb, no protein.

    the waterbottle idea sounds pretty good, I wonder how far ahead I can make them (blend a week's worth in a pitcher on monday and just pour em out day by day?)

    Most shakes I have seen will congeal within a few hours or certainly by a day later, but it really takes very little effort to make a shake each morning. Try just dumping water, milk, or juice, an MRP/protein powder, some ice cubes and your choice of frozen fruit in a blender. If you don't have time to clean up. Just fill the empty blender with water afterwards and clean up when you return from work. This whole process will take only a couple of minutes and should meet your needs.

    You don't necessarily have to eat a breakfast food. I've had chicken breast in the morning, hell i've had tuna. That wasn't lovely though. Just eat something you like with some protein and some good carbs. Remember, breakfast really IS suppose to be your biggest meal.

    On my work out days I have 3 eggs and a slice of toast before I goto work, some sort of cottage cheese or fruit snack mid morning. On my non workout days I have oatmeal for breakfast and bring in two hard boiled eggs for my snack.
