I was wondering if any of you had any ideas/ recipes for breakfast that you can grab heat and go. maybe even without the heat. I am always rushing out the door in the mornings and on 99% of them dont eat breakfast. i know it's better to and it'd help me loose weight. any ideas?

 Maybe make a smoothie the night before in a coffee travel mug.  Maybe make some granola bars with nuts and raisins or peanut butter.

I second the smoothies and granola bars. What about making breakfast sandwiches and storing in freezer? I fry eggs, add cheese and ham and wrap individually. It does involve 2 mins in microwave though.

 Those breakfast sandwiches are a good idea too.  I completely forgot that I would freeze them for dh to take early in the morning years ago.  I'd use those big Grands biscuits, mini bagels and tortillas.  I always switched out between bacon, ham and sausage too.
Great idea!

Chunk up fresh fruit, like oranges with bananas and put in ziplock. Pack with granola or nut bar. I love cold pizza for breakfast, too. Get little snack sized ziplocks and carry a handful of nuts out the door with you. If you like homemade treats, take an oatmeal or peanut butter cookie. It's more important to eat something, rather than worry about what. No reason you can't pack a plastic spoon and eat pudding right out of the Baggie, or cottage cheese. Mix peanut butter with jelly in the snack bag, and put whole wheat crackers in another. Yum!

Are you planning to eat your breakfast in the car en route to work?  Do you normally have an early bird appetite or does hunger kick in on your morning break?

Smoothies, granola bars, pre-made pancakes that just pop into the microwave, and trail mix.

If you're needing something while driving to work, maybe a shake would work.  To make ahead ... fill your travel mug with shake mix and milk the night before.  The next morning ... just shake it and go.  You can add a breakfast sandwich to eat when you get to work.

I make my own breakfast burritos and freeze them individually in Press n' Seal.  Unwrap, re-wrap loosely in a paper towel, and nuke on high for about 1-1/2 min.  It really depends on the size of your burrito wrappers, but it hardly takes any time at all.
