So, here's the thing. I eat two pb sandwiches every morning for breakfast. Why? Well, they fill me up (protein and fat) so I know that my sugar isn't going to tank before lunch. Also, I love pb. I actually crave this breakfast when I get up in the morning. I don't love the fat content, though. I want to lose inches and this pb habit is preventing that. I need different options for breakfast that are filling and easy/quick and not fattening like pb. I'm not someone who can do a yogurt or a bowl of cereal for breakfast. That will hold my sugar at a normal level for about 1 hour, if I'm lucky. I have no time in the morning to make anything that takes longer than the 30 seconds it takes me to make a sandwich. I'm a very picky eater. The obvious choice would seem to be eggs, but they upset my stomach and I generally don't like them. I can't tolerate whey protein, so those shakes are out (and would likely not be enough food, anyway). I've just never come across anything that will fill me up for as long as the pb does. I've even tried that PB2 powder, but it's inconvenient and tastes...not good. Plus, it rips the bread because it has the consistency and behavior of cement. Please help me find better breakfasts (and my abs).
tl;dr: I need a very filling breakfast option(s) to satisfy my picky palate that also won't spike and crash my sugar. Oatmeal/grits/gruel/cream of wheat/other mushed/soup-ed grain nastiness can GTFO.
