It’s very apparent that we are all on the run these days, and most of us forget to have breakfast while we’re on the go. But eating just a little something will aid in kick starting your metabolism for the day. By simply planning ahead a little bit your mornings can run more smoothly, which is especially important as you are trying to get you and your family out the door.

Here are 6 ideas for quick and healthy breakfasts that are easy to grab and go in the morning.

  • Overnight Oats- This is the ultimate on the go breakfast. Before going to bed combine ½ cup of milk (whatever kind you prefer), 1/3 cup of oatmeal, ½ of a mashed banana, ¼ cup of chopped nuts (whatever kind you prefer) with a little cinnamon. Just make sure to place all the ingredients in a jar or a Pyrex glass container so that it will be ready to be warmed up in the microwave. In the morning, simply place the jar in the microwave right before you leave the house or save it and heat it up at work.
  • Greek Yogurt Parfaits- The night before take a small jar or Pyrex glass container and layer in some Greek yogurt. On top of this layer, put your favorite fruit and then another layer of yogurt. Then add in the raw nuts of your choice or a combination of raw nuts. Refrigerate and grab this delicious parfait on the way out your door. Just don’t forget a spoon!
  • Apple Slices topped with natural Peanut Butter- If you cut apples into round pieces they can be put together like a sandwich after the apple has been cored. If you prefer natural Almond or Cashew Butter that works well in between the apples. Just put the butter on your apples and add raw nuts or raisins between the apple slices if you’d like for a tasty breakfast.
  • Breakfast Cookies- Usually cookies are not a good breakfast, but if the cookies are made with vitamins, why not? These types of cookies are filled with oatmeal, raisins, and nuts, which makes them a healthy choice for breakfast. Most of the recipes are gluten-free and can be found online, so pick one that your family will like.
  • Breakfast Wraps- The floured tortilla shells for breakfast wraps are filled with an egg done your favorite way. However, keep in mind that scrambled eggs seem to work very well and then you can add celery pieces or chopped red peppers with a small amount of cheese of your choice. Right before rolling it into the whole-wheat tortilla shell top it off with salsa. You can vary it each day to keep it interesting.
  • Quick & Easy Granola- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, combine ¾ cup of raw organic pumpkin seeds, 1 1/2 cups rough-cut oatmeal, ¼ cup Chia seeds, ½ cup dried cherries, ½ cup of raw silvered almonds, and ½ cup of shredded unsweetened coconut. In another smaller bowl, mix together 3 Tbsp. Natural peanut butter, ½ Tsp. Sea salt, ½ cup of grade B maple syrup and ½ tsp. Pure vanilla extract. Pour liquid over all the dry nuts and blend well. Put mixture onto a parchment lined pan or cookie sheet. Bake for 40 minutes. Cool and put into containers for a grab and go.
  • Muffins- The variety of muffins recipes online are many. Be adventurous and try different kinds to not only keep it interesting for you, but also your family.

Even though it is better for all of us to sit down and eat our breakfast together, this is not always possible. When families do not have time to eat together because of their busy schedules, these are great go to healthy breakfasts for you to make and enjoy.
