After getting back from the swimming pool today, I've decided that during the summer holiday's I'm going to have to swim before work two days a week. This means I'm going to have to eat breakfast at work. Usually I have weetabix and milk, but I don't want to take milk to work with me incase it spills in my bag.
Any ideas for sensible breakfasts that are easily portable?

What about those new cereal thingies which have the portion of milk sealed in them? Or possibly cereal bars and a Banana...?

Or can you chip in an extra quid to the work kitty for 'tea and coffee milk' and use that on your weetabix?

or buy some milk when you get to work?

I will have to have a look at the cereal things with milk sealed in them. Cereal bars concern me 'cos they always have so much sugar in them.
The milk kitty at work might be the answer. At the moment I don't contribute to it - as I don't drink tea or coffee, but that might be the best answer.
Thanks for the suggestions.

I have skyr (a sort of thick icelandic yoghurt - don't think you can get it in the UK) and oats, mashed up with a banana in the mornings.

It's quite thick and gloopy so I can put it in a tupperware and eat it when I get to where I'm going. And it's yum.

I've got a recipe for flapjacks that you could make and bring to work, as I often do if I'm in a hurry (you can also make them sweeter or less sweet depending on your preference) The oats are good for slow release energy. Can email to you if you want.

Oooh, flapjacks sound really yummy. I would love the recipe. They would be good to take to work as a snack, even if I don't have it for breakfast.

Will email it to you later. I did post it on the 'Do you want to lose weight' thread a while back but it keeps crashing when I try to find it.

No reason why breakfast should be restricted to what the food processing industry has taught us to regard as appropriate "breakfast" foods. I quite like soup and bread (though that's not very portable unless you've got a microwave or a good vacuum flask) or sandwiches for breakfast, and on Friday my daughter and I prepared ourselves for a day on the hills by breakfasting on chicken in black bean sauce, microwaveable rice (thanks, FLM!) and malt loaf.

Hi Vrap,
I'm not sure I could face chicken in black bean sauce that early in the day!
Sandwiches sound a pretty good idea though.
And malt loaf is good for any time of the day!

Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

I'm an early-in-the day eater, and can't think of anything I'd eat at dinner that I couldn't also manage within half an hour of getting out of bed in the morning. Tomorrow morning, I'm planning to have Christmas pudding and custard for breakfast because nowadays I rarely feel like having pudding in the evening.
