    Question Syn free breakfast ideas - on the go (stuff I can take to the office)

    Hello All,

    Week 2 of SW on Extra Easy and I'm all good with lunch and tea but I do find breakfast hard! They have a canteen in work which does the normal cereals/hot breakfast but as I don't know how it's cooked and what it is, so I'm starting to skip breakfast. It was normal for me to just get 2 pieces of toast or a bowl of cereal, but with milk allowance (used on coffee most days) and not being able to have normal brown bread on HeB I'm getting stuck for ideas.

    I've been having fruit/mullerlight or Alpen Light bars... but I'm already getting sick of the same thing. Do you have ideas as to what else I take to work with me without breaking the syn bank?

    maybe something I can make in the night and take with me?

    (this week I'm saving syns as I'm going for meal on Friday)

    Any help would be great, thanks in advance

    Could you take your own bread (60g wholemeal = Healthy B) and just ask them to toast it for you in the canteen? Then you could have it as your B choice and have it topped with baked beans. Maybe even ask if they could poach you a couple of eggs to go with it?

    My favourite breakfast at the moment is muesli topped with fruit and a Danio yogurt. I use the Dorset Cereals Simply Delicious Muesli (35g = Healthy B) and then mix up the combinations of fruit and yogurts. For example, one day I topped it with sliced fresh strawberries and a strawberry Danio yogurt (1 Syn), anther day I had fresh blueberries and a Blueberry Danio yogurt (3 Syns). If you want to save Syns you could use Muller Lights or other Syn free yogurts to replace the Danios.

    Similarly, have you heard of magic porridge / overnight oats? There's a whole thread dedicated to it on here. It's really simple to make - you just mix up 35g porridge oats (Healthy B) with a Muller Light and leave it in the fridge overnight. It magically turns into porridge the next morning - the oats soak up the yogurt and go really creamy and yummy. You could have that with a sliced banana or maybe some berries for your SuperFree.

    Do you have access to a microwave at all? I know some people that make an omelette the night before and then take it to work in a little tupperware box and heat that up in the microwave for breakfast. You could make it Syn free too just using a few eggs, mushrooms, peppers, onions, whatever you like! It would save your HEx's for later in the day.

    Hopefully this will give you a few ideas

    That was fab, thank you so much, I'm deffo going to try the porridge thing, sounds good

    Unfortunately they don't allow us to take our own toast for toasting (yes, I know, it's petty but it's because they charge to toast it!) But I will think on the omelette because I never thought about re-heating it, wasn't sure it would be ok to do that but we do have a microwave in the breakout room!

    Thank you lovely, great help!
