If there was any day that I looked forward to during the week when I was a child it was Sunday. I was always up early helping prepare a huge breakfast with my mom, and reading the Sunday comics with my dad after our bellies had been filled. As far as the rest of the week we were a “grab what you can, if anything at all, and go family.” Sound Familiar?
We are all so busy these days that sometimes breakfast gets pushed aside for a few extra minutes of sleep or simply not knowing what can be prepared to fill you up in a matter of minutes.
Here is a list of a few recipes that are quick, easy, and delicious. They are also very versatile, so feel free to play around and get the whole family involved in these tasty, quick, nutritious, and filling breakfast solutions. Make breakfast an everyday tradition!
Coconut and Mango “Boosted” Smoothie
Prep: 5 min Blend: 5 min Serves: 2-4
Don’t like mangos? Switch them out with any other fruit you like! Add a tablespoon of peanut butter for a protein boost.
Prep: 10 min Cook: overnight for 8 hours Serves: 6-8
This is an easy and versatile breakfast option or snack. You can mix and match different types of seeds or nuts and change up fruits, per their seasonal availability. If you know you’ll be in a big morning rush the next day, go ahead and add all the ingredients except the honey and seeds/nuts, and let soak overnight.
Peanut Butter and Oatmeal “On the Go” Breakfast Bites
Prep: 15 min Cook: 10 min Serves: 18-20 bites
These will keep in an airtight container for up to a week. Make plenty for quick breakfast grabs with a side of Greek yogurt, or for a healthier alternative as an after school snack attack!
