HEALTHY BREAKFAST IDEAS FOR BUSY SCHOOL MORNINGS

HEALTHY BREAKFAST IDEAS FOR BUSY SCHOOL MORNINGS

Hello!

With the school season upon us I wanted to share easy and healthy breakfast ideas to help you fuel your family's bodies for the day ahead. I hope this helps you and blesses you this school year.


CRANBERRY ORANGE PANCAKES

These are delicious, gluten-free and easy. Great to have when you have a rushed morning because you don't need syrup! 

TIP: Make them the night before for an even easier morning. 

MEAT ROLLUPS

I love meat roll ups for breakfast, snacks, or lunch. Use your favorite meats and cheese and it makes a great choice for a good protein to start your day. 

ENERGY BITES

This is an easy thing that you can make ahead of time and have ready for breakfast (or snacks). I love energy bites because they are something quick to eat that are filling, tasty and versatile. You can take the base recipe for these bites and put in your favorite nuts, fruits and seeds.

You can also make these healthy chocolate truffles that are refined sugar-free, rich and filling. 

SMOOTHIES

Smoothies are so good and easy. They are great to sneak in vegetables, you can add nuts/seeds for protein and add in your favorite fruits. You can just throw it all in the blender and you’re done! 

TIP: Something you can do to make it even easier is to put your smoothie ingredients together in a container the night before or at the beginning of the week and it will save you time in the morning.

SQUASH & PEACH SMOOTHIE

This is one of my favorite breakfasts. We cook our squash either the night before or early in the morning and then blend it up quickly. It is rich and filling. I think it would be something that even non-squash eaters would like.

TOAST

Easy and quick. You can make cheese, peanut butter, avocado, or egg toast. 

TIP: Instead of making a few slices of toast at a time in a toaster, broil them in the oven so you can make more in a faster time. 

PARFAITS

Parfaits have multiple layers of fruit, yogurt, and nuts/granola and they are filling and super tasty. You can put them together in the morning (it is easy) or you can make them the night before (even easier). 

GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS

Warm muffins pair perfectly with a cold fall or winter morning. I love these muffins for an easy and delicious breakfast. 

TIP: Make these the night before and store in an airtight container for breakfast the next morning. 

OATMEAL 

Warm, filling and delicious on a cold fall/winter morning. Add in fruits (dry or fresh), nuts and seeds. 

TIP: You make the oatmeal the night before and then just warm it up in the morning or you can just set out the ingredients for a smoother and quicker morning (Example: Put your water in the pot on the stove ready to boil, measure out your oats, and get your add-ins ready).

GRANOLA

Add to yogurt parfaits or eat with milk, granola makes an easy breakfast that is all ready for you in the morning. 

ICE CREAM

Wait. Did I just suggest ice cream for breakfast in a healthy breakfast idea post? Yes, I did. But this is not just any ice cream, this is banana and dark chocolate ice cream. This ice cream is healthy and delicious and really easy to make. I like to put it over granola and pour almond milk over it. Really good.

EGGS

Scrambled, fried or boiled, eggs are great for a boost of protein to get you to lunch. 

FRIED RICE

With fried rice, you can add in vegetables, meat, and eggs so it adds up to a filling and protein packed breakfast.

TIP: Cook the rice the night before, prep your eggs and veggies, and get the meat ready so all you have to do is cook it.

CAULIFLOWER & BACON

This is a healthy but different breakfast that will help you to get everyone out of the house on time. HOW TO MAKE IT: Cook bacon until crispy and add in frozen or raw cut up cauliflower and cook until hot and tender. 

TIP: Cook bacon and cauliflower ahead of time and warm it up in the morning. 

RUTABAGA & BACON

This is exactly the same recipe as the cauliflower and bacon above just with rutabaga instead of the cauliflower. It is so good. One of my favorite breakfasts ever.

TIP: Either make it the night before or shred the rutabaga the night before so that it is easier in the morning. 


There you have it! I hope this helps you get healthy and good breakfasts for this school year on the table. God bless!
