Ideas for portable, healthy breakfast?

I'm getting tired of hardboiled egg + soy sausage, which is my usual take-to-work breakfast. I prefer savory to sweet, so the yogurt and oatmeal thing isn't really for me. Any ideas for portable, savory and healthy breakfasts besides my usual?

  1. Breakfast burrito. You can make it the night before, wrap completly in foil and reheat in the morning. I put scrambled eggs and cheese in mine, but you can put the soy sausage in too, or veggies or anything else you fancy. It's good to have a little bottle of hot sauce in your desk at work, or in your purse too.

    1. i don't know how healthy this is, but it sure tastes great...

      pesto, egg, tomato and provolone cheese on ciabatta. :o)

      1. Vegetarian Corn Dogs. Ultimate portability -- on a stick!

        1. Lightly salted almonds; celery and natural peanut butter; low-fat
          mozz cheese sticks are pretty good too. Recently read about Polenta squares (you'd make them the night before) is so funny how for years, my (ex) mother in law cooked cornmeal mush for FIL and now it's quite the boutique food item!!!

          1. Egg salad made w/ whites and low fat mayo on whole wheat toast/sccoped bagel.

            Low fat cream cheese and lox on a whole wheat bagel or whole wheat pita, or rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla, with tomatoes, onions, and capers.

            Scooped bagel sprinkled with low fat mozzarella, toasted until melted then filled w/ salsa, and cottage cheese if desired for extra protein.

            Pre-made grilled garlic veggies or ratatouille w/ feta cheese.

            Black beans, low fat cheese, salsa and avocado mixed with a whole wheat tortilla if desired.

            You could do a savory couscous salad too w/ sundried tomatoes, low fat cheese or chicken, low fat dressing, etc.
