FIVE Quick & Delicious Breakfasts

I had a request for fast, on the go, breakfast ideas.  
And from everything I've learned about eating healthy (which is very little - ha!) eating carbs for breakfast is the best time to eat them.  Also, fast breakfasts require a variety of ingredients on hand and portions or things already prepared.  
So here are my TOP five fast breakfast meals. 

1. Breakfast Smoothies
This one that I make with Wild Orange oil is delicious.
And then I love Carnation Instant Breakfast.  
On the front of each chocolate packet is a recipe for a Chocolate Banana Smoothie:  

1 packet of chocolate instant breakfast shake
3/4 cup of milk  (I use 2%)
2-3 ice cubes
half of a banana
AND I add 3-4 strawberries
*I LOVE the Magic Bullet.  It's perfect for individual servings.  
Once you blend, flip it over, top with the ring and grab and go!

(one of my daughter's favorite smoothies!)

2. Two Minute Egg Sandwich
One English Muffin
Slice of cheese (I prefer sharp cheddar)
Slice of deli ham
One Egg
Now this breakfast can quickly come together, you just have to do it in the right order ;)  Turn on stove to heat pan.  Butter the pan to cook your egg. (I like butter better than oil.)  I keep my English Muffins in the freezer to last longer. Pull one out and put in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Crack the egg into the pan and break the yolk.  Salt and pepper.  

Take English muffin from the microwave, cut and place in the toaster.  Pull out ham and cheese.  Slice a few pieces of cheese and pull out one slice of ham.  Flip your egg.  Take English Muffin from the toaster and butter both sides.  Your egg should be done by now.  Put onto one side of muffin and put slices of cheese on top. 

I didn't have cheddar cheese - oops! So I used shredded Mozarella - just as yummy!

Keep the stove on - put the slice of ham onto the pan.  Slightly brown both sides.  Place on top of melted cheese.  Top with the second piece of English Muffin.  Can easily be wrapped in aluminum foil or paper towel for the road!
Grab and go!

3. Oatmeal and Berries

I sometimes enjoy eating oatmeal.  I know it's good for me and it's filling, so I try and eat it often.  But let's be honest, I don't always have time to cook regular rolled oats on the stove.  I'm sure many of you have already figured this out.  But I started buying Plain Instant Oatmeal Packets.  I dump it into a bowl, fill with 3/4 cup of milk (yes, I use milk!) and microwave for 2 minutes.  Then I put a little more milk in it, a spoonful of brown sugar and the best part of this oatmeal...the fresh strawberries I top it off with.  If you don't have fresh strawberries, a bag of frozen berries is awesome to have on hand!  Mix a handful of berries in, stir it together and the berries will defrost in the hot oatmeal.  Grab and go!

4. Yogurt and Granola

I wish I had some amazing granola recipe; but I don't.  Do you have one you love?  Please tell me and I'll post it!  I love Yoplait Vanilla Yogurt.  I recently read an article that it has too much sugar and makes you crash later.  Dangit.  I still haven't given it up.  But if you're trying to cut back on sugar, then a different yogurt might be a better choice for you.  I love to mix that specific yogurt with berries (again, frozen berries are GREAT to have on hand) and a couple spoonfuls of granola.  I buy the Kroger Oats & Honey Granola.  It has a handful of easy to read ingredients so I figure it's legit.  
Grab and go!

5. Bran Flax Muffins
Ok this is definitely healthy.  My friend Kim would make a batch of these and then freeze them.  
If she were in a hurry, she'd pull one of these out and microwave for 30 seconds.  Grab and go!
Bran Flax Muffins

1 ½ c whole wheat flour
¾ c flax meal
¾ c wheat bran
½ c brown sugar
2 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
2 t ground cinnamon
¾ c skim milk
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 ½ c shredded carrots
2 apples, peeled and shredded
½ c chopped nuts

1. Mix first 8 ingredients in a small bowl. 
 Mix remaining ingredients, except nuts, in a large bowl. 
 Mix the dry ingredients into the wet. 
2. Bake filled muffin cups at 350 for 15 minutes.

 AND finally...I love toast.  It's yummy and filling.  
So I usually add a piece of toast to most of these meals.  And you don't just have to top with butter.  
Peanut butter and honey is DELICIOUS for breakfast!  Grab and go!


  1. Those muffins, I need to make some for when I have this baby. Fiber. . . important stuff postpartum.

    1. Bah ha ha! Ah that comment made m whole day! :) Wasn't as bad the second time...

  2. Tiff, I have an amazing granola recipe! Remind me next week. This week is busy.

  3. Ok, you need to google overnight oatmeal. It's really delicious and you can make several servings at once and then keep in fridge and take one each morning. Try it! And I have a fantastic granola recipe that is healthy. And you need to switch to Greek yogurt. You can buy a big tub at Costco and just drizzle with honey and fruit to sweeten. Love you! Oh, and you can make your own yogurt too. I should just call you.
