If your weekday mornings are anything like mine, you’ve hit the snooze button one too many times (or turned off your alarm without realizing it… hey, I’m not proud!), and now you’re rushing to get out the door. In between brushing your teeth, taming your bedhead, and checking the weather to make sure you don’t freeze to death, it’s easy to skip breakfast in favor of a cup of coffee or nothing at all. For shame.
Here are three quick breakfast ideas that you can make in under five minutes (or less if you have the self control to prep the night before).
Greek Yogurt and Granola – It’s as simple as it sounds. A carton of yogurt. A bag of granola. A spoon. Just three things, and you’re good to go! Try to get some granola with a good mix of nuts and fruit to ensure you get some protein to jumpstart your morning. We also added a little honey to sweeten things up.
Avocado Toast – I know, I know. That’s soooo last year! But avocado toast is quick, full of protein, minerals, healthy fats, and fiber. They don’t call it a superfood for nothing. Add some Sriracha for spice, olive oil for flavor, and pepper for seasoning. I could eat this every morning.
Chia Seed and Fruit Oatmeal – Okay, we like superfoods. Sorry, we’re not sorry. Chia seeds have all sorts of health benefits, and it’s easy to sprinkle them onto of your oatmeal in the morning. Top with some cinnamon, honey, raspberries, and blueberries. If you prepare your oatmeal the night before, you can just throw it together and go!
See? Breakfast made simple and healthy. Now if you could just quit hitting the snooze button…
