On-the-Go Breakfasts

We have all done it:  extended our R.E.M. cycles by hitting the snooze button once or twice, maybe even three times. The payoff for those precious extra minutes of sleep often ends up with a mad dash out the door forgoing breakfast. This morning ritual couldn’t be more counterproductive. Your body has just spent hours resting and recovering from the prior day’s activities and now needs fuel to tackle the new day ahead.

Here are a few of my favorite on-the-go breakfasts that will help you get your day off to a great start. All of them can be adapted to meet your dietary lifestyle.

If you literally don’t have a moment to spare, then you are going to love a morning parfait. It can be prepared the night before, and all you need to do is open the fridge, grab it, and go. You will need a small container, store-bought or homemade granola, yogurt of your choice, and optional fruit. Depending on the season, I like using berries, apples, peaches, or mangos. Place some granola on the bottom of the container. Next, add some of the yogurt, and then add the fruit. Repeat these layers and you are done.

With a little more planning and a bit more time in the morning, you can enjoy a delicious breakfast wrap. You don’t need many ingredients to create this protein-rich breakfast.  Gather up your favorite veggies, some eggs, a tortilla of your choice (wheat flour, gluten-free, or corn), rice, and cheese (optional). The night before, place a variety of vegetables in a roasting pan with a bit of EVOO, and roast at 450°F for around 20 minutes. I have used combinations of zucchini, summer squash, onions, garlic, carrots, red peppers, broccoli, and eggplant. Really, the list is endless. Save these veggies for the morning.

In the morning, scramble up one or two eggs or egg whites, and add the veggies, seasoning, and optional cheese. Place everything in a tortilla, and it’s a wrap. Out the door you go.

What is more convenient than breakfast in a cup? In the time it takes to brew up some coffee or steep some tea, you can blend together a nutrient-rich smoothie. Here is a basic smoothie recipe that you can adapt and make your own:

Basic Smoothie

1 cup milk, almond milk, coconut milk, or rice milk

1 cup mixed berries – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries

1 cup kale

1 cup water

¼ cup kefir

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

Enjoy!

Be well & Inspired,
