So, what to do? Here are a few of my favorite on-the-go breakfasts that will help you get your day off to a great start. All of them can be adapted to meet your dietary lifestyle.
If you literally don’t have a moment to spare, then you are going to love a morning parfait. It can be prepared the night before, and all you need to do is open the fridge, grab it, and go. You will need a small container, store-bought or homemade granola, yogurt of your choice, and optional fruit. Depending on the season, I like using organic berries, apples, peaches, or mangos. Place some granola on
the bottom of the container. Next, add some of the yogurt, and then add the fruit. Repeat these layers and you are done.
With a little more planning and a bit more time in the morning, you can enjoy a delicious breakfast wrap. You don’t need many ingredients to create this protein-rich breakfast. Gather up your favorite veggies, some pastured eggs, a tortilla of your choice (wheat flour, gluten-free, or organic corn), rice, and cheese (optional). The night before, place a variety of vegetables in a roasting pan with a bit of avocado oil, and roast at 450°F for around 20 minutes. I have used zucchini, cauliflower, onions, mushroom, carrots, red peppers, broccoli, and eggplant. Really, the list is endless. Save these veggies for the morning. In the morning, scramble up one or two eggs or egg whites, and add the veggies, seasoning, and optional cheese. Place everything in a tortilla, and it’s a wrap. Out the door you go.
And what is more convenient than breakfast in a cup? In the time it takes to brew up some coffee or steep some tea, you can blend together a nutrient-rich smoothie. Here is a basic smoothie recipe that you can adapt and make your own:
1 cup almond milk, coconut milk, or rice milk
1 cup mixed organic berries, blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup kale or spinach
1/2 cup ice (optional)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
