I've been on a modified 5 meal diet that I got out of Men's Health. I follow it in an effort to eat well, not to lose weight. I follow it fairly loosely, but the one thing that I have always done is the breakfast. It's really time consuming though.
This is what it is now...
Two Fried Eggs, Steel Cut Oats, a Banana, Coffee, and Orange Juice
I need to drop either the eggs or the steel cut oats because it takes way too long to prepare and eat this when I need to be at work by 8a, and cannot get myself out of bed before 6a.
The rest of my diet is as follows
7a - breakfast listed above
10a- almonds, blueberries, water
1p- salad (with at least two vegetables), bread, cheese, turkey, water
4p - 2oz dark chocolate, cherries, water
7p - usually some kind of home cooked chicken or seafood, with wine
10p - protein shake, vitamin
Again, the goal here isn't to gain or lose weight. I just want to maintain. I feel like I can just drop the steel cut oats because I already have carbs guaranteed at 1p, but the transition is really rough. I'm hungry all morning. Any advice?

Listing food means nothing.
What is your TDEE? What are the macros?

TDEE estimate was 4342... This is entirely too high, but that's the estimate.
I aim for 3,500 cal per day.
500 for breakfast
300 almonds and blueberries
300 cherries and dark chocolate
This adds up to about 3300.
I aim for 25% carb but I won't be hitting that without the morning oatmeal.
