I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of some breakfast that lasts with you.. I usually have eggs, and grits or eggs and toast, I have to eat at like 6 and dont get out of class til 12 20 so this is hard I am use to snaking and they dont allow it! does anyone have any suggestions of a breakfast I can switch up to that last other than eggs? does anyone have a good sausauge swirl, like bisquits with sausage in it recipes?

I usually eat "Mighty Tasty gluten-free Hot Cereal" from Bob's Red Mill. I make a pan on Monday and then keep it in the fridge so I can just nuke some the rest of the week. Eat a cereal with some dried fruit and nuts mixed in and it will last longer than high protein stuff.

Almonds are a good suggestion. I had a Saturday class from 8a until 4p that was like some form of torture, so I kept almonds in my bag and would eat them while the teacher used the overhead projector. ;)

I almost always have rice bread (toasted) or a gluten-free english muffin w/ a lot of nut butter (cashew or almond) and a bit of jelly. If I know it will be a while before I can eat again, I'll have a banana with it too.

I posted a couple weeks ago about a breakfast or snack that I love to make myself and it's really filling.

Cut up your favorite fruits. I like strawberries, blueberries, banana and sometimes peaches. I use a few strawberries, a handful of blueberries and a whole banana (which makes it really filling). Add sour cream and sugar, mix it all together and there you go - very filling, yummy (or atleast I think so) breakfast.

For those that think this sounds really gross (as I think many people do), I'd like to say that I got this from my grandma and my dad, and for some strange reason I think this is a Jewish thing. We seem to like sour cream in strange concoctions (ex: Borscht, Schav, this - lol)!!

How about some beans (refried or boiled) and avocado with the eggs. The avocado has fat and that will help hold you a little longer. Six hours is a long time to go without food. If you don't like avocados, nuts have carbs, protein and fat. A perfect combo!

Also,

For Breakfast, have a turkey sausage and egg white sandwich and a side of banana.

Then, take an "Ensure" drink with you to class. Drink it around 10:00...They work as snacks and/or meal replacers and are pretty filling for being so small.

That is what I would do,

Bronco

No water???? That guys sounds psycho. I agree on the avocado idea. It sounds strange but scrambled eggs with avocado is really good and filling too.

I know it sounds counterintuitive, but I've found that if I eat only 3 eggs I am less hungry before lunch than if I eat 3 eggs and toast. Try it, it might work for you.

Same here! If I have carbs with breakfast, I am jittery by mid-morning. I think it is caused by a blood sugar rise and then sudden drop that causes it. I agree, that teacher is nuts and you have a right to a drink of water. Report him to the dean if he causes a fuss, they have to provide for medical handicaps as well.

Warm brown rice pudding with a little milk and some maple syrup .Toss a few craisins and toasted almonds on top .

Did someone ask about sausage in a bun?I can suggest gluten-free sausage in cornbread , use muffin tins to make single servings. You can either slice the cooked sausage and gently dot the muffins or just stuff a half a cooked sausage into each muffin . gluten-free cornbread mix lends itself well to blueberry muffins too.

If you get a note from your doctor that you need water and a small snack (to avoid dehydration, low blood sugar, etc.) and bring that NOT to your teacher but to someone way over his head--the department chair, the academic vice president, something like that), then your psycho teacher will HAVE to let you! (I'm assuming this is a college teacher--if it's a high school teacher, take the note to the principal.)

I think it is probably illegal for your prof/teacher to deny drinking water. And I certainly ditto the note from the doc about snacking. At the very least, once s/he isn't your teacher anymore, you should complain to the Dean/Prncipal to help those who come after you. It's insane.

MAKE SURE YOU GET A NOTE FROM YOUR DOCTOR (or even student health service). AS A STUDENT, IT DOES NOT MATTER THAT YOU ARE RIGHT AND THE PROFESSOR IS WRONG--YOU NEED TO HAVE LEGAL GROUNDS HERE, AND THE THE DOCTOR'S NOTE WILL GIVE YOU JUST THAT.

Trust me on this--my husband teaches at a college.

Could you make a protein shake or something liquid and drink it? I know you said he doesn't like you to drinkanything, but that seems crazy. If you are drinking something with calories that might be better tolerated than eating a snack.

You could do kefir or put protein powder in a juice or even a green drink. If you can't see what is in the container, then he might think it is just water and be ok with it.

I just don't see how someone can punish you for drinking water.

Hope your class is over soon.

It's hard to find things to keep you full. The key is protein and fiber. I eat the Bob's gluten-free Mighty Tasty Cereal, which keeps me full for a few hours (not sure if it would last 6- that's a long time). I also cook up whole grain quinoa or whole grain teff and add some sugar (or honey) which will keep you going for a long time. Quinoa is great because it is a complete protein with loads of fiber! It might not sound good, but it really is! Teff can be used the same way, add some nuts and/or dried fruit and you'll be set for the good majority of your class.

No water! Your teacher sounds too strict! Doesn't he realize how vital water is to the human body!!! Plus, water helps stop hunger pains!

I'd bring a snack to eat after breakfast in my car on the way to class, another snack for break, then another one for the ride home. I agree with everyone's comments about talking to someone above him about the no water rule at the very least considering how long the class is. I play flute at Mass and need water, so to keep it more discreet, I use a straw. It's a lot more discreet than having to tilt your head back. You might find more chances to sneak that way.

You need to eat some meat to carry you longer. If you're not vegetarian. I'm hypoglycemic and eating a little something sweet just plain screws me up all morning - I get the shakes from the carb let-down (toast/jam etc.). If not you should eat toast laced with peanut butter or peabutter.

And I'd be eating up until the moment I walked into class. Literally.

Sounds unreasonable to me. Don't they allow a bathroom break? You could scarf a handful of nuts on the way.

Good luck.
