Recently I've taken to eating a baked egg over a saute of sausage and whatever vegetables I have in my fridge in the mornings. This is great, since it keeps me filled up on my 40-minute commute into work and I've pretty much stopped snacking at work, and I'm losing a bit of weight. I don't even get hungry in the afternoons because I started my day off full. All good things!
However, I'm getting a little tired of eating the baked egg extravaganza--it IS like having a mini brunch every day and it does take rather a long time in the morning to prepare, even with prepping everything in advance. The baking of the egg takes at least 15-20 minutes, which is a long time in the morning.
Before, I used to eat instant oatmeal with honey or yogurt with fruit, but neither of these keep me filled the way my baked eggs do. I invariably arrived at work starving and raiding our snack stash. I also quit eating yogurt to improve my skin, and this has actually really made a big difference.
So what else can I eat that is low-carb, without dairy, focused on proteins and fruit/vegetables? I also don't particularly like eating very sweet things first thing in the morning. Even better if this doesn't take a lot of time in the morning, although I'm fine with prepping it in advance.
