Quick and Easy Breakfasts

Updated on December 12, 2011

No More Frozen Waffles!

A breakfast like the one pictured in the photo above would be wonderful, but for most people it isn't a realistic option. Too many people skip breakfast despite the fact that their body is hungry for nutrients, most having gone without food since supper the day before. Here are some things that take just a few minutes to prepare that will at least tide a growling tummy over until lunchtime.

  • WRAPS - Place a flour tortilla on a microwave-safe plate. Top it with a pre-cooked, frozen sausage link. If you like add some strips of green pepper and onion, and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Microwave for one minute. While it's in the microwave, scramble an egg. Once the egg is done, add it to the mound of ingredients atop the tortilla. Roll the bottom of the tortilla up then fold the sides in, making a delicious, somewhat healthy wrap that you can eat on the go.
  • GOGURT - The popular kids' treat isn't just for kids. Keep a few in the freezer! When you're short on time, grab one and enjoy some frozen yogurt while in the car. Because it's frozen it sits nicely in the car's cup holder, too. This is one of my favorites. And because it's one of the few things I'm not allergic to, it also makes a yummy bedtime snack, summertime treat, or smoothie ingredient.
  • YOGURT SMOOTHIES - Speaking of smoothie ingredients, yogurt smoothies are my favorites. Get out your blender and add a handful of ice cubes, a cup of your favorite flavor of yogurt, any fresh fruit you have lying around (berries, peaches, and bananas work best, but even apples and pears are good) that won't clash with the flavor of the yogurt, half a cup of milk and puree away! This snack is so healthy, go ahead and splurge with some whipped topping. You'll be the envy of everyone in the carpool with this tasty breakfast treat.
  • CEREAL BARS - This is a popular one in my family. Using the standard recipe for Rice Krispy Treats, just replace the puffed rice cereal with any other "healthy" cereal you have on hand. Once they've cooled, cut into generous-sized bars. Not only is this still a healthier option than having no breakfast at all, but it's also much cheaper than buying pre-packaged cereal bars off the grocer's shelf. And if the cereal ingredients doesn't already include them, try adding some nuts or bits of dried fruit like cranberry or mango to the mix. It's really pretty delicious.

So there you have it! There are so many options for breakfast that there's really no excuse to go without it. I'd love to hear some of your favorite quick and easy breakfast ideas. Thanks for reading!
