We’re offering 7 super quick and healthy breakfast options that you can make in about the same amount of time it takes for you to find your keys.

quick and healthy breakfast meals - Avocado Toast with Egg

Upgrade the simple toast breakfast by adding avocados and egg!

1) Avocado Toast with Egg

Upgrade your morning with an easy, healthy, yet filling breakfast. Top two lightly toasted slices of whole-grain bread with smashed avocado and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Layer on two sunny-side up eggs for a healthy dose of protein. Avocado is rich with Vitamin K, C, B5, B6, E, Folate, and Potassium – this is an abundance of nutrients to help kick-start your day. Added with the protein of eggs on top of toast, or your alternative to bread, this makes for a great and easy breakfast.

2) Yogurt Parfait

One of the easiest, healthiest, and tastiest breakfasts out there is a yogurt parfait. The best part? It can be made with any toppings you like. Just simply create a layered pattern of yogurt and fruit.Fruits naturally have sugars, so to balance it out, go with a plain Greek yogurt with little sugar. Also, find a granola that has an ingredient list you can read (although we recommend that with most foods). Try eating a parfait on the go to work by making it in a mason jar. It’s perfect for eating on the go and it can be refrigerated easily.

3) Homemade Oatmeal

Can’t make breakfast at home? Oatmeal is a great snack and breakfast to keep at work. All you need is a microwave or hot water at their disposal. They make instant steal-cut rolled oats that you can easily keep in a drawer for days you don’t have time to make breakfast. Mix in cinnamon, fruit, raisins or nuts to add more flavor. This is delicious at home or as your back-up at work.
