Morning can often be quite stressful and rushed, and the importance of a healthy breakfast is usually swept to the side. Fortunately, even if you do not have time to sit down and enjoy a full morning meal, there are plenty of healthy and quick alternatives that are perfect for eating on the go.
Breakfast muffins have always been an extremely popular on the go breakfast option, because not only are they easy to make in advance, but they will store in the fridge for up to three days, or up to a month in the freezer. The fillings that you add can be completely up to you, whether they be your favorite fruits or whatever you happen to have lying around the kitchen. From mashed bananas to blueberries to cinnamon to honey chopped nuts to dried fruit, this on the go breakfast can be packed with so much goodness. If you have made a batch to freeze, simply pop one in the microwave to heat it up and it will quickly be ready to dash out of the door with you.
Dressed Up Yoghurt
While a pot of yoghurt is a great on the go breakfast, it lacks a certain level of nutrition, and the artificially sweetened flavors that have become popular do not contain many benefits. If you tend to find plain yoghurt too boring, try dressing it up a bit each morning. Rather than grabbing a pot to take with you, open it at home and top it with a sprinkling of fruits, chopped nuts, seeds or anything else that you would like.
Breakfast smoothies are the ultimate in portable breakfasts, because not only are they easy to drink with just one hand, but they are packed with all sorts of body-boosting vitamins and minerals. Strawberry and banana is a classic flavor combination, but you can throw just about any fruit into the mix. Adding some nuts will give you some extra protein, and will make your smoothie even creamier, while adding some kale in with your sweet fruits will help to balance out the bitterness of the greens.
Avocado Toasted Sandwich
Avocado toast is another healthy breakfast classic, but, if this is too difficult to eat on the go, turning it into a sandwich is a great alternative. If you would like an extra dose of protein, quickly fry an egg to add to the sandwich, either wrapping it all up to eat on the go or storing it in a plastic box to eat a bit later. Don’t forget to opt for wholemeal bread rather than white bread, as this will give your body some extra fibre and minerals.
Healthy breakfasts can be easy, with just about any classic breakfast having a healthy, and portable, alternative. From a breakfast smoothie that you can sip while driving to a toasted avocado and egg sandwich that you can enjoy once you get to work, these on the go breakfasts will ensure that your day starts off with all of the nutrition that your body needs.
