Here are some of my favorite, quick breakfast ideas that are high in protein, delicious, and can be made quickly the morning of or the night before.
- Smoothies-I like to fill up jelly jars (or mason jars) with a few frozen fruits, some green cubes, flax/chia/hemp seeds and keep in the freezer. In the morning I pull the jar out and fill with a nut milk (choose your favorite type) and let sit to slightly thaw for a few minutes while doing other things. Than I blend in my Vitamix
- Quick egg breakfast over top of greens. I try to make greens almost every night with just onions and will reheat them in the morning with an egg and then I add a yummy sauce over top for some extra veggie deliciousness.
- Overnight oats-just look this up on Pinterest and you will be inundated with so many different recipes. No matter what your tastes are, you can bet they have an overnight oat for you.
- Toast-my daughter used to love jelly with toast every morning. If you are looking for a healthier option, try adding some nut butter to the top with some fruit and then sprinkle some seeds on top, you can also try cottage cheese, yogurt, or cream cheese as a spread than add their favorite fruit and some mint for garnish.
- Cereal-try to go for one of the healthier cereals that is higher in fiber and lower in sugar and then amp up the fiber and protein by sprinkling some flax meal over top. You can also try a cereal like, Magic Spoon.
- Fruit-create a berry bowl with some almond milk on the bottom, a scoop of almond butter and a sprinkling of seeds on top.
- Muffins/breads-try to cut back on the refined sugar by using honey or maple syrup instead. A lot of recipes call for a ton of sugar and many times you can slowly decrease the amount of sugar to something that is less sweet (I usually decrease by 1/4 cup to start); you can also add a protein powder as a sugar replacement for another option.
- French Toast-if your child is not keen on eggs, try making french toast. It has the egg and milk dip yet still has a similar taste to pancakes or waffles
- Sausage meats-try different types of sausage and then add plantains for some carbs or create a potato hash with veggies to go with it
- Sweet potato-try a breakfast burrito with mashed sweet potatoes, black beans, and some wilted greens and onions for a quick grab and go breakfast. Or fill the sweet potato with almond butter and a banana for a sweeter option.
