breakfast from a bicycle?

Hello,

I commute on my bicycle to the train, and then have a 1 hour train ride, on which breakfast would be kinda nice. I was wondering what is easy to transport via bicycle, and good for a breakfast that doesnt take much silverware or bowls etc, but still is fairly healthy and good for an after ride meal.

I was thinking a thermos of soup?

other ideas?

Thanks.

-- James

PBJ? Burrito de jamon y queso (ham and cheese)? Banana? Bagel sandwich?

Soup doesn't sound very convenient, or at least for me desireable as a breakfast. Any kind of healthy sandwich, baggies of fruit or dry cereal, and granola/cereal bars come immediately to mind.

Any particular sandwich types you like.

I bring oatmeal to school, sometimes. I just microwave it at home in an empty salsa jar (glass, lid off) and it stays hot for about an hour. Rice is easy to make and then scoop into a jar, too, but that's not really breakfast food.

How long is your ride? Fried egg sammich...(fried hard) if you have a short ride it may still be warm (or use foil)...all the other suggestions sound perfect too.

Are you asking me?

I just walk to school (<0.5 miles).
The oatmeal is pretty hot, so I wouldn't recommend sticking the jar in the back of your jersey or anything.
