Breakfast Woe's

I work usually 4-5 days a week, 10 hour days. I usually have 'pre-made' frozen meals that I eat when I get to work, but the last 4 or 5 days it's been all I can do to 'force' myself to eat it. Some days I just feel too 'full' for breakfast, others I just don't feel hungry yet...but I know I should eat. This is what my breakfast typically are:
1/2 cup Egg Beaters
1 Sausage Patty (Great Value Brand from Wal-Mart)
1-2 Tbs Shredded Cheese
1 Tbs Low Carb Ketchup
I mix it all together then freeze in 'portion' sized containers, then I can just grab n go. I guess I need to find something 'lighter' for breakfasts maybe? But herein lies my dilemma, I am a 'walking' pharmacy so have to eat a 'big' breakfast or I get sick later with my morning pills. I've tried juggling pills around and it just doesn't work. I have to eat the 'right' combination or amount of food. In the past it's been like a yogurt, with an egg sandwich, and an apple/orange/banana, but since I'm low carbing...I have to keep that in mind. UGH!

Sorry so long, does anyone have any 'lower' carb breakfast ideas? Thinking maybe if I switch it up a bit maybe that will help wtih the 'blah'ness and the not wanting to eatness. Could just be a TOM thing too though...dunno.

Hey Heather! I know it sounds silly but what about something simple like deviled eggs that you can prep ahead of time as well? Can you have a protein bar? Something quick like that? Why not have a low carb yogurt along with some nuts? Just a few ideas! I tend to lean on hot dog wieners (Oscar meyer less then 1 carb a peice) because I can nuke em, then throw them in a bag and eat while I drive. Yeah~ not good to do but hey, it works!
