It’s been said over and over, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not here to argue that point, but sometimes, especially now with a little one running around, eating breakfast is just not as easy as it use to be. Today, I’m sharing a few of my go-to breakfast items that I can whip up in no time- I’ll call these my Monday thru Friday. I try to get a little fancy on the weekends.
Plain Greek Yogurt Parfait (Monday – Friday) – I love yogurt parfaits, but I never buy them. The majority of the store bought parfaits are LOADED with sugar. It’s super easy to put one of these together at home- I usually put about 1 cup of plain greek yogurt, top with peanut or almond butter, about 1 tablespoon of granola, whatever fruit I have available, I love to sprinkle chocolate chips on top, and finish off with some nuts (almonds, pecans, etc) – I love the crunch!
Oatmeal (M-F) – This is something I pre-make. I don’t buy the individually flavored packaged oatmeal – once again typically loaded with sugar and artificial flavors. I buy unflavored/plain quick rolled oats and make a large batch over the weekend, separate into containers; then they are ready to be eaten throughout the week. I top my oatmeal very similar to the above.
Whole Wheat TOAST (Monday-Friday) – I know, this one might sound kind of boring. This is actually my breakfast 80% of the time. My trick is to switch what I put on it….honey, pure honey; PB&J, a classic; or cream cheese.
Oatmeal Fruit Bake (Click on link for recipe) – This one is perfect for weekend and leftovers can be eaten throughout the week…and it is sooo easy to make.
Pancakes!! (Weekend) – These are definitely a weekend treat. There is absolutely no time for fresh pancakes during the week, so I usually try to make pancakes at least once throughout the weekend. Linking below some of my favorite pancake mixes…I always opt for the healthier version.
Manitou Pancake & Waffle Mix (Gluten Free/ Ancient Grain) Definitely my favorite so far!!
Wheat Montana Whole Grain pancake mix —2nd favorite.
Protein Shake – This would be my 2nd go-to breakfast item, if I didn’t have to clean the blender.
Healthy eats!! XOXO Besitos
