    As my shifts have been getting earlier (preload), I have taken the switch from a solid meal: egg sandwich with breakfast sausage w/bacon and milk, to a protein shake and an arizona iced tea. What kind of breakfast do you eat? I ask because I am trying to get a rotation and eating the same thing over and over because of time constraints gets real old, real fast...

    Oatmeal; with bananas, blueberries, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

    High in carbs, protein (w/ milk), and will provide a wealth of energy. I've eaten a bowl every morning for at least ten years.

    2 cups coffee and 2 cigarettes. Liquid and gas for me.

    I was thinking oatmeal too. You can vary the toppings. Use fresh fruit when in season. It's a "stick to your ribs" breakfast.

    My neighbor is over 65, works over eight hours a day, and eats oatmeal every morning.

    It must be the oatmeal, because it's certainly not the shoes.

    Instant man? No, that only exists in Hollywood and bad 80's montages.

    No they don't BUT, if you have a small round crockpot or bean crock, before you go to bed add the steel cut oats, some water, dried fruit...whatever dried fruit, and cream. Set on low and in the morning your house will smell like a bakery and it's soooooooo goooooooood!

    Don't be to quickly to judge me , it's mostly UPS' fault that I need to drink.
    Heck if they didn't pay me so well , I could never afford it.

    I feed on management incompetence, wash it down with a tall glass of I need air help. Makes my mornings so much less stressful and the truck's cardboard smells so much sweeter.

    Some of you are behind the curve. Where is the protein? Oh, you're spoiling yourself with the 10g of p from that milk.

    Is it impossible for you to mix protein powder in oatmeal w/milk + chopped up fruit and eat while driving in? Cottage cheese/peanut butter are also good options as a side.

    I can understand why some of you feel like garbage going in on 400 calories worth of bagel and cream cheese, with your next meal being equally as lacking. Then the machine is jacked up 20 years in.. yeah.
