Breakfast ideas for Busy Mornings!

Looking for easy breakfast options that are both nutritious and delicious? Look no further than this handy post, featuring some of our favorite on-the-go breakfast ideas.


Whether you're short on time in the mornings or just looking for a quick and healthy way to fuel up before work or school, these tasty options have you covered. Rather than stopping for a donut or fast food on the way to work, you may want to try to prepare these breakfasts in advance or the night before to save you some time! This way, you can start your day off right with increased energy and motivation, rather than with the heavy feeling of a carb coma, bloating, and brain fog. Let's dive right in to some of our favorite breakfast ideas!


During the cold winter months, you can never go wrong with a warm, comforting bowl of hearty oatmeal. The key when having oats in the morning, is to always include healthy fats and protein in order to off set the sugar spike from the complex carbs in the oats, and to stay full and satisfied longer.



Chocolate Cinnamon Belly-warming Oats

  • 1/4-1/2 c gluten free rolled oats
  • small serving of sweetener of choice (we love raw honey, organic male syrup, monk fruit or organic stevia)
  • 1 tbsp seeds of choice (chia seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds, or hemp seeds)
  • 1 tbsp raw nuts/nut butter (we love raw almond butter, cashew butter, or even pumpkin seed butter)
  • 1-2 tsp cacao powder for a chocolate-flavored brain boost!
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

Cook in a saucepan on medium-low for 10 minutes and it's good to go! For an added protein boost, try adding a scoop of collagen peptides or a clean plant-based protein of your choice! Some people love to add berries, banana slices, apple chunks and other fruits as a topper!



Egg Breakfast Bowl

If you are in the mood for a more savory breakfast option, packed with protein and healthy fats for sustainable energy, give one of these a try!

  • 2 pasteure-raised eggs
  • avocado
  • arugala/any dark leafy green
  • Avocado oil/ghee


All you have to do is first, add avocado oil/ghee to a skillet on low heat. If you are running behind, try a lazy scramble by adding eggs directly to the skillet, stir with a spatula. Add a pinch of Himalayan salt, black pepper, and greens once the eggs are almost done if you enjoy your greens to be cooked. If not, you can place washed greens in a bowl before your eggs are cooked. Once cooked, add to your bowl, top with 1/4-1/2 avocado and dig in!



Veggie-packed open-faced omelet

This is another great breakfast that does not take up too much time to prepare in the morning or even the night before!

You will need the following:

  • At least 2 pasteuraised eggs or egg whites
  • greens of choice
  • bell peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Himalayan salt
  • black pepper
  • Optional: 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast

All you have to do is sautee the vegetables in a skillet that has a lid, with 1 tsp ghee or avocado oil. Add beaten eggs/egg whites to the skillet, sprinkle in seasonings and nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor packed with B vitamins! Cose the lid and cook on medium heat! Enjoy!



Protein-packed smoothie


I must preface this recipe with a very important statement! Smoothies can be an easy way to include lots of micronutrients, and colorful phytonutrients in our day if they have the capacity to be digested and absorbed. The process of digestion begins with our mind acknowledging that we are about to eat, which stimulates stomach acid and enzyme production to break down the food and absorb nutrients to be used. If you are chugging a smoothie while rushing or stressed, you will most likely end up with a stomach ache, and not absorb the healing colorful nutrients! So take a deep breath beforehand, calm your nervous system, and eat slowly.

Give this a try:

  • 1/2 c frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • Handful of greens such as organic kale, spinach, or swiss chard
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 scoop protein powder of choice (collagen peptides, hemp protein, pea protein)
  • 1 c unsweet almond milk/ plant based milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp nut butter



Chia Pudding

This is by far the easiest breakfast to make in advance, taking the least amount of time than any other recipe listed! Not only is it packed with healthy omega thee fatty acids, but also contains loads of fiber!

Here is what you will need:

  • 4 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened plant based milk of choice
  • sweetner of choice (monk fruit works great as well as honey/maple syrup)
  • cacao powder or cinnamon
  • Optional toppings: nuts/seeds, berries/any fruit of choice, unsweet coconut flakes
  • Optional: 1-2 schoops collagen peptides/plant based protein of choice for an extra boost of protein!


All you need to do is add all of the ingredients aside from the toppings, to a glass jar or storage container and stir. Let the mixture soak overnight. In the morning add your toppings and protein powder if needed and enjoy! It's so easy, we love using this as a quick breakfast or snack on the go!


Breakfast does not have to be super complicated but is so important to start the day off on a good note! Sometimes we think going through a drive thru will save us time, but all we need is a few minutes to spare in order to fuel our bodies with clean foods that will sustain us! Give these a try and let us know what you think!
