Looking for Make-Ahead, Low-GI Breakfast Recipes

Good Questions

Q: I'm a graduate student on a low-GI diet. I have a lot of early morning classes this semester and a pretty packed schedule throughout the week. I'm looking for recipes for breakfast I can cook over the weekend and either freeze or that will keep in the fridge for the rest of the week.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Editor: Beth, what about lots of fruits and vegetables? Cut up a melon at the beginning on the week and toss in some halved grapes. Stir in plain, unsweetened yogurt for a quick breakfast. Or sprinkle in some oat bran! You can also do eggs; try these make-ahead crustless quiches:

Readers, do you follow a low-glycemic diet? If so, what are your favorite breakfasts?
