I Need Food Inspiration...

I've moved -- that could be several posts in and of itself, but whatever, it's done. I'm on vacation now, whee! (Not that I'm doing anything exciting, but I had early days all week and I'm happy to sleep in.) I think that I'll actually enjoy my surgery rotation (totally unexpected but sweet) but there's a downside: I have to eat breakfast. Days start at 5:30AM (eeeeeeew) and if I don't eat, I'll pass out in the OR. But I don't want to wake up any earlier than I have to (I already need to get up at 4:30 to get to work on time) and my stomach can't handle anything too "sloshy" that early. I ate cold pizza all this week -- and it was good but I think 8 weeks of it would get old. So here's the challenge: I need something that I can take from the fridge and eat in the car, no heating required. I'm willing to cook on the weekends but I'd prefer things that would keep in the fridge through the week, rather than needing to be frozen and later defrosted. Vegetarian is a must, high-protein would be ideal. There's always pizza, and I've also thought of French toast, and peanut butter sandwiches. Yogurt and smoothies are too liquidy; I've thought about something like a Spanish omelet but I really don't love eggs. So inspire me and I'll love you forever :)

How do you feel about those breakfast hot pocket things?

Thanks for the idea -- I hadn't thought about that! Only problem -- this is seriously going to sound crazy, but I run late enough in the mornings that I'm not sure if I'll have time to heat one in the microwave :( I'm really, really, REALLY not a morning person.
