I need some easy breakfast ideas.

I have had a tough time finding a decent, easy to make, quick, on the go, breakfast recently. I'll go to the store, but most everything is crap.

Here are the basic parameters I am looking for....

I want to be able to nuke it (if it needs to be warmed).
It needs to be no more than 500 calories.
It needs to be able to be eaten in the car.

Any ideas? What do you guys do?

I'm never super-hungry in the morning (especially for solid stuff), so I usually make a Carnation Instant Breakfast shake. They even have a no-suguar-added version with a lil' bit of extra fiber, which keeps everything running smoothly. My wife likes them too, so breakfast prep is easy for my uncoordinated, grumpy self.

No, looks like 6 (or 8, it's hard to make out) per box, and 12 boxes are included.

Lately I've been eating the breakfast hot pockets. Not as good as home-made but if you want something you can nuke and eat in the car, they'll do the job. I suggest the biscuit versions.

Jim Gaffigan has spoiled Hot Pockets for me. He slays me.

I always cook a pound of bacon and a pound of sausage as well as a can of biscuits on Sunday mornings. They'll all keep refrigerated for 5 days without a problem and then each morning I just fix either a bacon or a sausage and cheese biscuit in the microwave. Just as easy, and much better than that precooked shit that you'll buy at the store.

I make one of the following:

A small PB+J: PB is high in calories but actually very good for you (lots of monounsaturated fat) and sustaining, just don't use too much of it and get low calorie bread/rolls. Also, takes about six seconds to make.

Nonfat plain yogurt + honey + whatever else you want to throw in (I thrown in slivered almonds, raisins and roasted flax seed... sort of a yogurty trail mix). Avoid the preflavored variety (even vanilla) as it's got more sugar than Coke.

Smoothie: banana, strawberries, sugar-free frozen yogurt, protein powder (and whatever else you want to throw in there... I've made some pretty weird ones in the past). It makes a lot of noise early in the morning, but very portable, tasty and sustaining.

Mainly coffee, though. Lots and lots of wonderful, blessed coffee.

Also consider adding walnuts to a yogurt, Both are very good for you.

Shoot dog, throw it over an open flame, eat it.

edit: just read it had to be under 500 calories. A puppy would work better.
