Need breakfast ideas with a few restrictions (okay, maybe a lot)

Miss Needle | Mar 9, 2009 11:54 AM

Hi. Due to certain circumstances, DH needs breakfast ideas that are:

1. Can be served at room temperature or cold
2. Easy to eat and not too messy -- will probably have to eat it quickly at his desk
3. Preferably gluten-free (not a celiac, but feels better when he avoids gluten)
4. Is not yogurt or cereal (he hates the stuff)

He refuses to eat breakfast at home because he doesn't want to wake up earlier than he absolutely has to. I'm really trying to rack my brain coming up with ideas. It would definitely be easier if gluten wasn't an issue. So far, I've got:

Tortilla Espanol
Fruit, fruit salad
Fried rice
Onigiri (stuffed rice balls wrapped with seaweed)
Maki rolls
Almond milk banana flax seed shakes or other smoothies (btw, do these things transport well -- he's got over a 1.5 hour commute taking commuter train and then driving)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
