    Breakfast on the go

    Primal Fuel
    Ski season's coming up. Our usual routine was to hit Starbuck's on the way out of town to grab a latte and breakfast sandwich. I'm trying to plan in advance for something Primal that can be eaten while driving, keep me full until lunch (skiing is hungry work!), warms the belly and doesn't take more than a few minutes prep in the morning (prep the night before is fine).

    I've started making my own lattes with unsweetened almond milk - I found a frother that works wonders, add a bit of stevia to the milk before frothing and it feels like a good cold morning drink. But I'm still at kind of a loss as to what to eat in place of the breakfast sandwich. I'd rather not sit down and eat before I leave, because I'd have to get up that much earlier and I'd rather spend waking time skiing than sitting and eating.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?


    ETA: maybe I should just start gnawing on a turkey leg while I'm flying down the highway...

    I made the omelet muffins in a batch of 6 and really enjoyed them in the morning. I liked them cold, but you could give them a quick heat.

    Oh, those omelet muffins look good - I might have to try making those with a bacon cup instead of the paper cups...I think I could probably do everything but cook those - pop them in the oven in the morning as soon as I get up, then take the whole muffin tin into the car as soon as they're done cooking...

    I've never tried a larabar - do you have a favorite flavor?

    I have a couple! I don't eat them often b/c they are very high carb. My favorite is Peanut Butter & Jelly, followed by cinnamon roll, and banana bread

    If they're high carb, they're not really going to fit with how I need to eat. I'm staying on the lower end on carbs for weight loss.

    You could still go to Starbuck's and get a coffee with whipping cream instead! That cup by itself could keep me full until dinner if I get a large enough size...

    I do a latte for breakfast sometimes - but coffee with cream isn't enough to keep me from getting hungry when I'm skiing. I normally have no problem eating little to no food until at least noon, sometimes into the afternoon, but if I don't eat before I ski I'm ravenous and miserable by 10am.

    Hardboiled eggs would work except they have to be peeled, and I hate doing that, even in advance. And I'm not sure how well they reheat.

    On my last ski trip, I brought cold pre-peeled hard boiled eggs (I peeled them, didn't buy them that way).

    Other alternatives include making your own protein bar and bringing along some raw veggies. Or bring some homemade chicken/tuna salad!
