5 Healthy Breakfast Options to Eat on the Run

No, Pop Tarts Are Not on the List!


Mornings are a busy time, and it doesn’t take much to throw you off schedule. By the time you get yourself and the kids dressed, and everyone is ready to go their separate ways, there may not be enough time for you to eat breakfast.

Instead of skipping breakfast altogether or eating a donut, you need a breakfast that tastes good, and will keep you full until lunch.

Here are five healthy breakfast options to eat on the run:

Energy Bars

These tasty banana protein balls can be made ahead of time and then sealed in individual bags. They’re vegan-friendly, and at 47 calories a bar, you don’t have to worry if you eat more than one. Best of all, there are over eight grams of protein in each bar, so you’ll be less tempted to hit the vending machine.

Yogurt Parfait

I love the yogurt parfait from McDonald’s, but you can make your own parfait with a lot less sugar. You’ll need a mason jar for storage.  Layer healthy ingredients such as plain Greek yogurt, your favorite fruit, granola or quinoa, and then top with nuts. Your on-the-go breakfast is ready!

Apple Mug Muffins

You can’t get much more convenient than making a healthy breakfast in a mug. Instead of sugar, this recipe calls for unsweetened applesauce and a teaspoon of maple syrup. Combine the rest of the ingredients, zap in the microwave for two minutes, and you’re ready to go out the door.

Breakfast Smoothie

To save time, you can use frozen berries of your choice, and blend in some flaxseed. Flaxseed is a good source of fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower your triglycerides. This smoothie is sweetened with honey, and fat-free yogurt gives it a creamier texture.

Frittata Muffins

What a delicious way to get the protein of eggs, and sneak in a few healthy vegetables! You can make these muffins on the weekend and just pop one in your bag as you leave for work.
