    Default Breakfast on the go

    Needing some ideas ladies

    Dh is a shocker. If i dont get up and make him brekkie (at 5:30 in the morning) he will go to work with nothing. He refuses to make himself breakfast as he cant be bothered - even cereal. Hes no keen on it unless its sugary junk which i refuse to buy

    He doesnt care if i dont make it but then he is hungry by the time he gets to work and wants to buy stuff (he takes a packed lunch everyday)

    So need ideas for breakfasts on the run. Im getting exhausted from getting up all the time!

    Ta.

    What about one of those up and go type drinks? There are a few on the market now? Or even the cereal in the packet tubs so he just has to lift the lid and pour milk in (not very cost effective though, they are more expensive I think).

    Why not buy those breakfast bars : I think special k, nutrigrain etc. Make them.
    Otherwise cheese and bacon rolls, croissants, muffins - you can make these or buy them.

    Could you have the cereal ready for him in a bowl(covered) then he puts the milk on in the morning?

    Make him pack a bigger lunch. An extra sandwich and piece of fruit. Or you could bake and freeze some muffins and send him with one or two of them.

    Can he toast or heat anything up when he gets to work? Orr made ham and cheese croissant, toasted sandwiches, mini bacon and egg quiches are great cold, have a yogurt frozen berry mix in the fridge in a blender so all he has to do is blend and go? Muesli bars, those big
    Mushrooms cooked with an egg in it are nice cold too, mixed nuts, fruit salad with yoghurt, savoury muffins?

    These are the things I have if I cant have a proper breakfast:

    Up and Go

    Those individual serves of crackers and cheese.

    The tubs of yoghurt that also have a side of muesli that you tip in.

    Not sure if they're really cost effective but they are nice and easy anyway

    What about a zucchini slice or similar that is made in advance and he just has to grab a pre-wrapped slice as he heads out the door?

    Same with a Savoury muffin - bacon and cheese?

    Don't forget too when you talk about not being cost effective are you weighing up the cost of buying say an up and go or muesli bars v's the actual cost of him going to the shops to buy it? Clearly the most cost effective thing would be for him to eat cereal at home but obviously he is not going to so which in the long run is more cost effective, you buying it for him to take or him buying it out? Just something to think about it.

    ETA I would be telling him to do it himself or go hungry but seeing as he's buying the breakfast I guess it's not probably going to help much.
