4. Banana and Peanut Butter Smoothie
Some people just aren't breakfast persons and that's okay. Aside from coffee, a breakfast smoothie can be a simple alternative to food. This recipe from the Chubby Vegetarian is only under 400 calories. It is important to use frozen bananas as this substitutes the dairy for those who are lactose intolerant. The outcome?

If you're someone who loves sleep and would love to just have something on the go for when you walk out the door, peanut butter energy bars is the answer.
