I don't normally eat breakfast, but while pregnant I have to eat something before work or I can't make it till lunch. Right now my obsession is Eggo waffles with Nutella, but I would like something a little healthier. The problem is I like my sleep too much to get up in time to make anything. So if anyone knows of very quick breakfast foods I'd love some help. Another problem I have is I hate eggs and sausage.

Maybe cut up fruit the night before? Or even having a grilled cheese or something like that...

I'm not tremendous help with this since I've been having waffles and frozen pancakes & all I want are home fries, sausage & eggs!

Do you like fruit? I'm too lazy to cut up fruit myself but I like to get the fruit cups in 100% juice (I drain the juice first) and put it on top of cottage cheese. Super fast & easy. I like the Dole ones you can get in the canned aisle and Del Monte has cold ones you get in the produce section. The mixed berry is DELISH.
I think I've seen recipes for things like healthy oatmeal raisin cookies or bars that you can make ahead & grab a couple first thing in the morning. Pinterest or a Google search would turn up lots of recipes, I bet.

There are lots of breakfast casserole ideas that you could prepare the night before and just stick in the oven in the morning before you start getting ready.
Or my go-tos are bagels and peanut butter with crackers

Well, I've been obsessed with eggs during this pregnancy, but since you don't like eggs, I don't think I can help in that area!

I also do a lot of yogurt w/ granola and fresh fruit... or a good ol' PBJ.

Thanks for all the different suggestions. I bought some bagels and creamcheese today at the store for the days that I actually have time to throw something in the toaster. For days that I'm even more rushed than that I bought canned fruit, berry preserves, vanilla yogurt, granola, shredded almonds, honey roasted sunflower seeds and some small mason jars. Tonight I made up 7 fruit and yogurt parfait things. I will just add the crunchy items when I get them out of the fridge so that they don't get soggy. I just hope they will stay in the fridge for a week without going bad. I guess we'll just have to see. Of course I did buy too much fruit so I have some left in the freezer for more yogurt or to make smoothies out of. I also made myself a strawberry, kiwi, and pineapple smoothie for now.

I have to eat in the morning or I'll feel sick all day, but most foods make me feel sick after I eat them (I'm typically not a breakfast eater either, and my body doesn't like it). I've found the only thing I can eat in the morning where is still feel okay afterwards is a bagel with peanut butter and some fruit. I try to eat whole grain bagels and add the fruit just for some extra healthy choices. Cut up your fruit the night before, and throw your bagel in the toaster while you shower or if you don't shower in the morning just have them toast while you do the rest of your getting ready.

Never thought about peanut butter on a bagel. I do try to buy either the whole wheat or the everything bagel. I usually put cream cheese on them, but I've been thinking about adding some sugar free preserves on top for variety. Now that you mentioned PB I may have to try that too. Maybe with bananas.

Bananas are my very least favorite food!! But if I liked them even a tiny bit, I would definitely put them on. A decently healthy breakfast that's easy and all in one

I have the same thing almost every morning. Peanut butter toast, cottage cheese and fruit. It keeps my blood sugar low. Sooner or later though the fruit will make it go up so I'll have to give that up.
