Breakfast SOS

This plonker right here 🙋🏻 has slept in.

So I couldn't have my porridge this morning to start my day (feeling it now) and I'll have 20 mins before my shift starts to grab a cuppa and some breakfast, but I don't know what to get.

My work canteen do cooked breakfasts, I could just do scrambled egg and mushrooms but it's greasy, they do an assortment of pastries, French toast and cereal bars. I'm at a loss 🤷‍♀️

Mashed or sliced banana on toast? Yummy, quick and filling!

My choice would be the cooked breakfast, mrsdavis, much better than a lot of sugary carbs and a lot more satisfying :)

My canteen does do porridge, so I would be checking it is not hidden somewhere.

If not, I agree with moreless I would be choosing cooked - on a good day I would avoid the sausages, and things like hash browns or fried bread, but hoping there was some bacon, egg, maybe tomatoes, or even baked beans. My personal choice.

Scrambled eggs and mushrooms won. Tempting as all the sugar and carbs were 😂

Think you went with the best choice there. One thing to think about for the future is maybe having a couple of sachets of those instant oats where you just add water, not sure of the calorie figures for them. I know I used to carry boxes of them around when I was working weird hours in operations and they were my go-to for the munchies or missed meals, take no time at all to make and are really filling. They take up very little room so are easy to stash somewhere.
