My latest go to quick breakfast

I don't have time for elaborate breakfasts most days. I often find myself at a coffee shop grabbing an oatmeal which is ok, but the portions are very small and they don't ever taste as good as I want them to. The real problem with the coffee shop oatmeal is that I don't feel satiated until lunch. I need a full tummy or at least something that has a enough bulk to make me feel full without consuming 1200 calories! I've also learned that foods that digest slower seem to help me feel full for longer. (side note: for more on calorie density and satiety click over here. ) So what's my answer? Bulk-potatoes Slow digestion/protein-beans Some days I have precooked potatoes on hand. Usually I roast a 3 lb bag on Sunday to have for the week. In that case I pick three potatoes, mash them with a fork and dump some beans on top and warm in the microwave. Of course I must season to my taste with various toppings. What type of potatoes? Lately the waxier potatoes. Gold
