These recipes are super simple and easy to get done in the mornings. I totally get that 5 minutes in the morning is sort of make or break to being late to work so of them you could even prep the night before!
Also a small disclaimer, I know in a rush your food won’t look this “pretty”, it might be a hot mess BUT what matters is that it tastes just as good. So just keep that in mind if you’re thinking… how am I gonna get something that cute at 6 a.m. half asleep.
Let’s get right into it.
- 1 ripe Avocado
- 1/2 Lemon, for juice
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
- 1 slice of Toast
- Red Chili Flakes, to taste
- Cilantro, garnish
Fruity Strawberry Smoothie
-3 Large Strawberries
-1/4 Mango, sliced
-1 ripe Banana
-1/4 cup Almond Milk (I prefer unflavored)
-1/4 cup Ice (if the fruit is NOT frozen)
Prep work is where you can really cut down on how much time it will take to get this made in the morning. I would suggest loading everything in your smoothie blender and putting it in the fridge overnight. Then in the morning just pop some ice in and blend.
Better yet you could prep the week ahead and place everything in the freezer. Then in the morning, all you add is your liquid.
Eggs Sunny Side Up on Toast
- 2 Eggs, fried sunny side up
- 1 tbs. of Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
- Cholula, to taste
- Cilantro (garnish)
optional: slice of toast
Almond Butter + Strawberry Jam Toast
- 1 slice of Bread, toasted
- Almond Butter
- Strawberry Jam
- 1/2 Banana
- 3 Strawberries
This recipe is pretty self-explanatory. You toast your bread, spread some stuff on it, and slice some fruit for the topping.
Of course, you don’t need to make both for your quick breakfast but I thought I would give you 2 options.
I couldn’t help myself but take amazing photos of them together afterward.
There are tons of different ways to dress up your toast and these two are really quick and yummy.
Nutritious Oatmeal Bowl
- 1/2 cup Oatmeal
- 1/3 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 tsp. Agave
- Yogurt, of your choice
This recipe is also pretty straightforward.
You begin by taking your plain oats and adding the almond milk. Microwave that for a minute or so, depending on your oatmeal preferences. I like my oatmeal a nice combination of wet and dry. So I added about a 1/3 of a cup but definitely eyeballed it.
I will add agave sweetener either before I microwave it or drizzle it on top.
Then slice whatever fruit you have on hand. Toss it in and you could be on your way! If you wanna get fancy then you could add a dollop of yogurt too.
I hope these recipes helped you find ways to make a filling breakfast even in a pinch! These are my go-to breakfasts other than cereal and bagel with cream cheese.
Let me know if you try any of them or have any other recommendations!
