One of the biggest things I'm struggling with foodwise at the moment (aside from simply, er, forgetting to eat) is getting a satisfying breakfast into my face in the morning. The things I do currently are either making an omelette or sausages and toast, having granola, making oatmeal, or er, not eating until the afternoon. Oatmeal or granola are easy, but they generally leave me feeling unsatisfied and exhausted (something about the fibrous grains/milk combo, I think, and I don't feel like I get enough protein despite that I make it with milk.) The omelette and toast option is more satisfying, but the prep is slightly harder, and for me the textures and flavors can be kind of hard to process sometimes, which leads to me eating very slowly. Despite that the balance of nutrients is good for me, three eggs and a slice of toast isn't quite enough food for me, and I can't just size it up because I'll tend to get bored with eating before finishing. I once tried making a batch of eggs + potatoes + veggies to eat throughout the week, which was good, but I don't think I can do that reliably, and I don't have enough storage containers to batch my breakfasts *and* lunches/dinners.

I'm hoping you might have some breakfast suggestions that involve plenty of protein, are not a type of porridge or use of granola, and for which the prep is quick and uncomplicated. I have some limitations on cost and of course sensory processing issues, but don't shy away from suggesting things on those grounds.
