what to have for breakfast if you can't face cooked food

Just wondered if anyone has any inspired ideas for breakfasts that don't involve bacon or eggs etc. I just can't face cooked food first thing, but do feel hungry in the mornings.

So far I've been having greek yoghurt or skyr with nuts and berries. But would like some inspiration for variety.

For the first two weeks of Bootcamp you need to avoid the nuts and berries - they can get very carby very quickly!

Why not try a continental breakfast? i.e. cheese, ham, cold boiled eggs, etc?

Or - how about leftovers from the night before? A quick blast in the microwave won't take long! Breakfast doesn't need to involve special foods - it's just another meal.

A smoothie?
Nice big handful of spinach, scoop of protein powder (I like chocolate or vanilla flavour), almond milk and Greek yoghurt/kefir and a few raspberries or cherries (about 6)
Whack it all in a blender, it only takes a few mins
If you use frozen spinach and fruit, it is like frozen yoghurt!

Oh, and a spoon of flaxseed! I find that a really useful source of fibre for low-carbing

I normally have cold meat with a bit of cheese.

Whilst full fat natural Greek yogurt is good, Skyr isn't as it's very low fat. You need to get energy from somewhere and on a low carb way of eating, the majority of your energy should be coming from natural fats (otherwise you'll end up hungry). smile

Thank you all. Had a lovely Scandi breakfast this morning of cucumbers, orange pepper and cheese.

Mary I know Skyr is low fat but I hoped adding nuts would help. I need to read the bootcamp spreadsheet.

Lidl full fat Greek style yoghurt has the same carb value as total and is half the price so a good option for breakfasts. I like it plain anyway and sometimes add a drizzle of cream for a LC breakfast

Boil a couple of eggs the night before and have small portion of Brazil nuts. Find its a great on the go breakfast.

Since realising Skyr was so low fat I've been mixing it with double cream. Still cheaper than Total (especially as it's on offer here).

Just need to figure out how to make thick, Greek-style yoghurt when my new yoghurt maker comes!
