Breakfast is often identified as the most important meal of the day, and yet, it’s the one most of us skip. Whether it’s because your alarm went off late, you’re rushing to find your left shoe, or trying to corral the kids into the car, a healthy and robust breakfast is the last thing on your mind.
We’re here to help! With a little bit of meal planning, these breakfast ideas are quick, tasty, and most important of all – healthy. They will give you the energy you need to power through your morning.
Overnight Granola Cups
Unexpectedly refreshing and filling, these overnight granola cups
are the perfect combination of quick and healthy. Make the dry ingredients ahead of time, then simply add milk of your choice and fresh fruit the night before you want to grab and go. Mix up your milk and fruit combinations for different flavor experiences. Old mason jars make excellent storage containers.
Ham & Gruyere Mini Quiches
If you’re feeling fancy, try these mini quiches
. Using greased muffin cups, whip up your mixture and then pour in. Twenty minutes later, you’ll have 12 perfect quiches to grab during the week. Substitute Gruyere cheese with a cheese substitute if you’d like, or the ham with turkey bacon. Regardless, each little quiche is just 144 calories – and packs a serious protein punch.
Chai Spiced Chia Overnight Oats
Skip the latte, and try this take on overnight oats
instead for a filling breakfast option that wakes you up. Creamy and customizable, these oats are ready to roll in about five minutes flat. Cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and brown sugar for a cozy combination, perfect for those cold and dreary winter mornings.
Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Cups
All the goodness of a fresh blueberry muffin, with half the calories? Yes, please. These oatmeal cups
are lightly sweetened with some honey with a soft and chewy texture. And the best part of oatmeal versus muffin? These little guys will keep you full way longer. Enjoy with some greek yogurt on the side, or as they are.
Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches
We get it. Sometimes the drive-thru is mighty tempting on the mornings your stomach is rumbling. But by making your breakfast sandwiches
at home, you’re not only cutting calories, but you’re saving yourself some money, too. Use a whole grain english muffin and then stack your sandwich with whatever you’d like. Try adding mixed greens or spinach for an extra dose of veggies. When you’re ready to reheat, remove your sandwiches from the freezer, wrap in a paper towel, and microwave for a minute. Flip your sandwich, and then microwave for another minute and voila! You have a café ready sandwich.
