    I seem to have a big problem finding something to take to work for breakfast every morning. I always end up having a bread roll with meat but would prefer not to use my B option on breakfast every morning. Any ideas??:)

    When I'm in a rush I normally grab a mullerlight yog and a bit of cereal like museli to pop on top of it. X

    I know it would use your B choice but how about Alpen Lights? That is sweet cereal!!

    You can have 2 for a HEB so tat should fill you up.

    Or how about a sauage sandwich? Using Bowyers sandwhiches. But again that is your B.

    I am not being much help!!

    Rice pudding?

    Cereal - I've recently discovered crunchy bran and you get good amount for your HEB. If you like it sweet add sweetener or honey. I take it to work in a box and just add milk when I get there

    Breakfast quiche made the night before?

    I have exactly the same problem, i love extra easy plan and have found it very successful for me but unless you have an extra half an hour in the morning to cook food (I would much prefer that half hour in bed) you can only eat fruit or end up using your 1 healthy b and i really like to save this for evenings.
    If someone comes up with an answer to this, it would be great.

    funcurls Never gets tired of SW!

    I work a lot of earlies (nurse in ITU) and breakfast is essential for me because I don't always get a break for hours and hours, so I always give myself time to whip up a quick omlette (takes me literally 2 mins) or heat up some porridge in the micro- again 2 minutes! (I am a quick eater though!!) If I don't allow myself time for brekkie I know I'll snack later on in the day on the wrong things and not just that but I'll feel ill and faint in work!! I'd rather have a few mins less sleep than let this happen!X

    How about a clear soup?

    or a rosti? You could make these the night before.

    Grate potatoes into a clean teatowel then twist the teatowel to remove excess moisture, mix with spring onions/bacon or other flavour full foods, add an egg to bind with plenty of seasoning (If you are eating this cold you need a tad more seasoning).
    pour the mixture into a very shallow dish sprayed with frylight and cook in the oven until golden and crispy. serve in wedges.
    I reckon a slice of ham on top of that would work a treat. You can also make small ones like fritters and fry them in frylight in a frypan.

    I take 2 Activia FF and 2 Alpen light and then I get a banana from our sandwich man. I don't eat the second Activia until 11:30ish and if I've not eaten it by then I save it for an afternoon snack to get me through from 13:00 until I go home at 4, 5 or 6!

    How about a potato hash - you can make the night before (make a big batch) and just heat up in the morning, or even eat cold.

    Take either a couple of large baking potatoes, or some new potatoes (keep skin on - I prefer as gives extra flavour) and dice into half inch cubes.

    Par boil for about 5 mins and drain.

    In a large frying pan, heat some frylight and add the potato, a chopped onion, a chopped green pepper and 1/2 tin of lean corned beef hash (Princes Corned Beef, Lean, canned 100g [2 Syns on Extra Easy // Original 2 Syns]).

    Season with salt and pepper and some worcestershire sauce to taste. I like to cook it for quite a bit so the potatoes goes all crispy.

    You can vary the amounts of ingredients to taste.

    The Rosti would be Syn free on Green and EE

    Firm omelettes (Think Frittata rather than a one minute omelette) are lovely cold.
    Use leftover cooked new potatoes, onions, peas, peppers, or whatever you have left over in the fridge beat four eggs with plenty of seasoning, cook slowly over a low heat for 10 minutes until mostly set and the bottom is browned then flash under a hot grill just to brown the top. You could use your HEXa and use some cheese. Personally I don't like cheese for breakfast but each to his own!

    BTW never use red onion, it turns the frittata blue overnight and looks horrid!

    Yes I agree, a frittata type thing is lovely cold! I haven't had a 'normal' omlette cold to be honest but there'd be nothing wrong with cooking one the night before and quickly heating it up for 30 secs in the microwave before work!! Here I go again trying to get you to eat brekkie at home!!LOL!!X

    Gunna have to print all these recepies off and give them a go, cant wait now they even seem so much more appealing than bread anyways! thanks for all the help always good to have someone to help!!

    If I am in a rush (and when am I not??) then I have a banana and a peach Activia fat free yogurt.

    StripedDaisy A sucker for a key change

    I take a tub of defrosted cherries (asda's are sweet) mixed with fat free greek yoghurt with an added sprinkle of splenda. It is lovely and surprisingly filling. (And I can't usually eat fruit on an empty stomach).
