We know that when you are on the run it is difficult to cook breakfast and even worse to eat healthy! That’s why we found these Healthy Breakfast Snacks for Mornings on the Run.
Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
Smoothies are a perfect on-the-go snack any time of day. Blend 1 frozen banana, 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter, 1 cup soy or almond milk (which keep longer out of the fridge than regular milk), and a few ice cubes. (Add a scoop of your favorite chocolate or vanilla protein for an extra protein boost.) If this is a morning snack, keep it in a tight-sealing container and throw it in a gym or work bag. For an afternoon boost, prep it the night before and freeze, remove in the morning, and it will be thawed and ready to enjoy after lunch.
Finally, a muffin without all the carbs. Plus, these guys are simple to make. Beat 10 eggs, ¼ cup chopped onion, 3 handfuls of spinach, 1 shredded zucchini, ½ a bell pepper (chopped), 4 slices cooked bacon or ham, chopped, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Divide egg mixture evenly in a lightly-greased muffin tin, and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Zap it for a few seconds in the microwave before serving.
One of the easiest, healthiest, and tastiest snacks (or breakfasts) out there is a classic fruit and yogurt parfait. The best part? It can really be made with any toppings you like. Try choosing fruits that are in season locally for the most flavorful options (try our stone fruit saladfor summer, and opt for apples come fall).
Yes, it’s possible to make really good scrambled eggs in the microwave. And it’s easy! Beat 2 eggs, throw in a microwave-safe container, add 1 handful of your favorite veggies (cherry tomatoes and spinach leaves work well), and a sprinkle of cheese. Zap the mixture for 30 seconds, stir, and cook another 30 seconds, or until eggs are solid. Throw a top on the container to eat later, or store the raw mixture in a fridge until ready to heat and eat.
For anyone with a microwave or hot water at their disposal, these customized instant oatmeal packets are fantastic to have on hand. Instead of purchasing pre-made oatmeal packets, assemble your ownin ziplock baggies using whole rolled oats, cinnamon, and mix-ins like raisins and nuts.
