5 Breakfast ideas that take 5 minutes to prepare!
I am notorious for waiting till the last minute possible to run out the door and get to work on time. Generally, because I play the game “how long can I sit and watch TV with my coffee,” instead of actually getting ready. Anyways, this leaves me with literally 5 minutes or less to make me a breakfast that will keep me full and get me to work on time.
I have 5 recipes that I love to stick with because they all take 5 minutes from start to finish! I will say some of these recipes do take a little prep work, but what’s 30 minutes out of your weekend for ease and simplicity during your week!? Also, bonus, each recipe is filled with healthy proteins, fats, and the good carbs keeping you on the right track to a healthy lifestyle to lower the risk of breast cancer!
I got this recipe from my online health and fitness group! It literally tastes just like a Snickers and keeps you full until lunch.
- 1 Frozen Banana cut into halves
- 1 Tbsp Almond Butter (or Peanut Butter is just as good)
- 1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
- 8-10 oz Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- Dash of Carmel Extract
Literally, I just throw it in my nifty Nutribullet, give it some quick pulses and enjoy on the go!
I’m not a fan of greasy chorizo (which is super big here in Texas), but I LOVE me some Soyrizo a vegetarian alternative that has the flavor but not the guilt or grease of the real stuff.
- 3-4 Inches Soyrizo tube
- 1 Brown Egg
- 2 Tbsp Pepper Jack Cheese
- ¼ Avocado
In a pan over medium-high heat brown and break up the Soyrizo, this should only take a little over a minute. While the Soyrizo is browning whisk the egg in a bowl with a splash of water, lower the head in the pan to medium and scramble the egg with the Soyrizo. Top with cheese and avocado, OMG I’m dreaming of this now.
This is my favorite for a quick breakfast or an afternoon snack. Keeping freshly washed berries on hand will always be a lifesaver in a time crunch.
- 8 oz Greek Yogurt, a flavor of choice (I love Chobani Key Lime flavor)
- ¼ cup raspberries washed
- ¼ cup blueberries washed
- 1 tsp Chia Seeds
- ¼ cup Granola
In a small bowl fold raspberries, blueberries, and chia seeds into the yogurt. Top with granola of choice!
I generally keep this on the weekends, as a full stomach at work definitely makes me want to sleep. But this is a great option for a quick way to start your day with a full stomach and will be guaranteed to get you through to lunch. Also, I use Dave’s Killer Bread in this recipe, but feel free to sub with your favorite whole grain option.
- 2 Slices Honey Baked Ham Luncheon Meat (I get mine from the grocery store deli)
- 1 Brown Egg
- 1 Slice of Cheese (Provolone or Swiss are my choices for this sandwich)
- 2 Slices of Dave’s Killer Bread, Thin Sliced Powerseed
- 1 Tbsp Spicy Mustard
To start place sliced bread in the toaster. In a non-stick pan crack the egg and cook over medium-high heat (I cook mine over easy, but hard fried, and sunny-side up are beautiful options as well). Spread mustard on both slices of toast and stack the sliced ham and cheese. Lay the cooked egg over the cheese and top with the other slice of bread. Seriously this is my hubby’s breakfast every morning.
Yes, waffles for a healthy and quick breakfast are a thing. They are even better when topped with a Peanut Butter substitute and some turkey bacon. Ok, I know I lost you, but don’t act like you never salivated over the Pancake-sausage-on-a-stick combos every morning as a kid. Sweet and savory make for a breakfast you can’t turn down.
- 1 Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk and Vanilla Power Waffle
- 1-2 Tbsp of PB2 Peanut Butter Powder
- 2 Slices Thin-cut Turkey Bacon
Heat the turkey bacon in a non-stick pan on medium-high heat (turkey bacon takes about 2.5 minutes to cook in the pan). While the bacon is cooking toast the waffle. Mix a tad bit of water, as stated in the PB2 directions, to make your peanut butter. Spread the peanut butter over the waffle and crumble the cooked bacon over top.
