I don't eat breakfast! I eat post workout.  Protein Powder, Yogurt, Eggs,
Cottage Cheese, Coffee, Avocado, Sardines, Chocolate Milk,
Jerky, Turmeric.

A study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that when exercisers supplemented resistance training with whey protein, they saw an average increase in lean body mass of 4.9 pounds.

Besides protein and carbs, yogurt is an excellent source of leucine, an amino acid  that enhances muscle growth after you exercise.

Physical activity can decrease your body of choline, a nutrient that's involved in muscle control, memory, and the transport of fat to your liver. One egg contains  about a quarter of the amount you need in a day, in addition to six grams of protein.

Cottage cheese is low-sodium, and contains 24 grams of protein per cup.

glycogen is ferried from your blood to your muscles more rapidly when you combine caffeine with carbs afterward, shows a 2008 study in the Journal of Applied Physiology.

Replenishing your potassium  can help prevent muscle cramps, half an avocado contains 488 milligrams. Plus, a Loma Linda University study found that people who ate that amount with lunch were 40 percent less hungry three hours later than those whose midday meal didn't include avocado.

Sadines, have macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, lomega-3,

A study from Indiana University found that cyclists who refueled with chocolate milk were able to work out for 50 percent longer the next time they got back on their bikes compared to those who swigged a carb-replacement drink. Bonus: The chocolate helps relax your arteries, increasing bloodflow to your muscles. Just watch out for brands with added sugar.

Dried beef, pork, and turkey, are easy to bring to the gym. And the newer versions from brands like Krave and SlantShack are nitrite-free and have less sodium and cholesterol than your standard Slim Jim.

Turmeric gets its color from the compound curcumin, which a 2014 study in the International Journal of Sports Medicine found reduces exercise-induced oxidative stress. Blend a half teaspoon of ground turmeric into a smoothie made with frozen mango or pineapple.

Frozen mangos! I have 34 mango trees. They come back in early spring.
You're very smart. Thanks for the input. Maxy
  I grow Avocado trees too, but they're resting this year.

I really like oatmeal.  I put a little flax seed oil in it and a touch of brown sugar and use whole grain oats.  I like yogurt with some granola in it.  A hard boiled egg.  A little Canadian bacon.  :>)

Overnight, No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal
They are filling and packed with nutrition, too. Include chia seeds in the recipes.
Chia seeds have more Omega 3 fatty acids than flax seed
are the richest non-marine whole food source of Omega-3 (better than salmon) absorb 10 times their weight in water and transform into a gel-like substance great for athletes for maintaining hydration and helps with weight loss by making you feel full longer are as high in protein as quinoa
are loaded with calcium, potassium, Vitamin B, and anti-oxidants
help balance blood sugar via the gelling action of the seed and it’s unique combination of soluble and insoluble fiber that slow down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars have a neutral taste so they will take on the other flavors in a recipe can be eaten whole (unlike flax seed); they don't have to be ground before adding them to food in order to digest them and benefit from their nutrients have a two year shelf life, stored at room temperature (flax seeds quickly become rancid and lose their nutritional value)
In addition to chia seeds, this refrigerator oatmeal has protein- & calcium-packed yogurt and fiber-rich oats. It's hard to find a healthier breakfast than this.
