Superdilettante

I don't think there's anything wrong with having a light but protein-laden breakfast and then packing another light snack to take to work (I like string cheese and some nuts). I certainly don't want to deal with making a more elaborate breakfast and then washing those dishes in the morning!

I highly recommend also making your own granola - because having the same thing every morning doesn't thrill me. This plus some greek yogurt is delicious. http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelysanders/how-to-make-the-best-granola-ever

I have really different morning routines that I know wouldn't work for everyone. Some days of the week I get up 30 minutes earlier so that I can exercise--but it's important to me that I don't do the same thing every day. I give myself every Monday morning off (because why make Monday worse?), for example. This is OK for me because I'm strict enough with myself that I know I'll make up for it later. I know other people who have to do the same thing every morning or they lose their momentum.

This sounds like a really lovely routine. I long for my early 20s when I had a 10 minute driving commute and could do my entire morning in about 35 minutes:
Alarm
Start shower
Put a pot full of water and the kettle on. Put toast in the toaster.
Shower
Add egg to boiling water. Push down toast. Make tea.
Dress
Retrieve poached egg, toast, tea.
Drive to work.

Superdilettante - I really need to make that granola. I've been meaning to do it for a while now.

Elizabeth - I never thought to have an egg boiling while I showered. What a great way to maximize your time!
