Avoiding the post-breakfast energy slump

I eat a nice breakfast, comprised of Irish oatmeal with a sliced banana, raisins, prunes, and walnuts.  However, I have noticed that about 30 minutes after breakfast my energy slumps.

It dawned on me that my breakfast is primarily carbohydrates, with a small amount of fat from the walnuts.  No protein.

A week ago I decided to hard boil three eggs (boil for 5 minutes), and eat the egg whites before eating the oatmeal.  The result: no post-breakfast energy slump!  I’ve been doing this for a week – 3 egg whites then oatmeal – and am amazed at how steady my energy is after breakfast.
