Mostly always green smoothies with a few scoops of protein powder such as hemp protein, sunwarrior raw protein or vega wholefood optimizer.

Lately I've been having a shake made of soy milk, a cup of oats, rice protein and orange juice. Pretty easy way to get in a decent amount of calories and protein.

Why can't you eat oats?

I've read that people who have gluten intolerances can often handle oats that have not been stored in silos used to hold wheat. Apparently oats either do not have that much gluten in them or oats are chemically different. The problem is, silos used to store wheat have a residue of gluten left behind from the wheat that gets on the oats. At least in the U.S. you can buy oats certified not to have been stored in such facilities, though of course, it is several times more expensive.

I'm fine with gluten but cannot tolerate oats at all.

I started having either porridge or muesli for breakfast and straight away my ongoing heartburn / acid reflux problem got much worse and I started suffering with, bloating, terrible flatulence, abdominal pain, serious fatigue, depression - when I changed what I was having for breakfast, all these problems instantly vanished so now I avoid oats completely.

Is it okay if I make a smoothie with protein powder on the night before and drink it in the morning?

Usually what happens when you do that is the protein sinks to the bottom of the bottle, which is fine if you make it in a shaker bottle because you can just shake it up again.

No worries, it's fine.

But ... never put ground flax in if you are planning to leave it: it just turns into a sort of blancemange that refuses to budge and is entirely unappetizing!

Thanks for the answers, my problem is using the blender in the morning, I'm probably one of the first to get awake in the whole apartment building and I could get in trouble for it.

Oh no.

You are providing a valuable early alarm service.

I think that not only should you carry on, but that everyone in the building should pay a small tarriff in gratitude for you helping them enjoy the dawn.

You carry on old chap.

Tofu bagels are my new favorite high protein breakfast.

Where have you been all my life bagels.

I love bread- eating it and making it. I don't think a day passes where I don't eat it in some form. But I don't eat it for breakfast very often because I'm lazy in the mornings and cereal is the easiest way to eat what I need to
