Many often consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day. Many times, breakfast meals seem weird to eat for lunch or dinner; but some are perfectly viable to eat at any time. That being said, these are the best breakfast meals you can eat anytime during the day!
Cereal is one of those foods that you can enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a midnight snack. Whether you like the sweet fruit loops, sugary frosted flakes, or chocolaty Nesquik, cereal is generally understood as eatable at any time.
At first, it might seem weird eating cereal at different times during the day, but you’ll appreciate the milky and rich taste when you crave something filling and delicious.
Bagel and Eggs
Bagels and eggs are another timeless meal. While primarily seen to be just for breakfast, you can most definitely eat them anytime, and nobody would bat an eye. That’s why restaurants offer them throughout the day!
If you want to spice it up, you can always have these with bacon, lettuce, or tomato and make it a BLT!
Pancakes have, and always will taste amazing, no matter the time. They are the staple breakfast of Canadians and are loved throughout the world. Eating them for lunch is not only a viable option, but you will thoroughly enjoy it!
The syrup is timeless, so are the toppings you can add on the pancakes if you would like. They are a simple meal to make, so if you are rushing to make dinner, I highly recommend you make pancakes (although it might seem unorthodox).
Waffles are very similar to pancakes, in that they not only taste amazing but have a large variety of potential toppings to go with them. No matter your taste in food, waffles will be a great option for not only breakfast but any time during the day!
Most of the time you add syrup with them, but feel free to add strawberries, bananas, chocolate spread, or any other topping of your choice!
Oatmeal is not one of the meals that immediately come to mind when thinking of timeless breakfasts. However, after you get used to eating oatmeal for lunch or dinner, you will see just how normal it is!
The sweet, creamy, and utterly delicious taste of oats just makes your mouth waters no matter what time of the day it is. Keep in mind though, that you will want to eat them shortly after you make them (as they don’t taste as good when soggy, similar to cereal).
Berry and Yogurt Smoothie
Smoothies are one of the meals that are universally seen as an “eat an anytime” meal. However, they’re mostly made for breakfast, but you are by no means limited to having a berry and yogurt smoothie then.
They are quite filling (hence why I say these are a full meal), tasty, and easily customizable. You don’t need to have berries with the smoothie, if you would prefer another fruit (like a banana), you are more than free to do so!
Quinoa Fruit Salad
If you have never tried quinoa before, I highly recommend it. It is not only a healthy but also a very tasty rice substitute. Eating it with a fruit salad hits all the nutrients you can possibly need for a meal, and you can add any meats to the meal if you would like.
Using honey or lime as a “sauce” is quite common, as it adds to the flavor (especially when you use mangoes and berries for your fruit salad).
Similar to the other meals on this list, this is most often seen as a breakfast meal (as it is not too heavy), but it is yet another perfectly viable all-day type of meal.
Tomato Toast and Ricotta
While these are originally a vegan meal, you can easily add any meat of your choice to spice it up. Tomato toast and ricotta is such an underrated meal, and when you first eat it, it can quite easily become your go-to meal.
It is also very healthy, as you have various nuts, garlic, etc in place of the regular mayo on bread. Unless you do not care too much about your carb intake, it is recommended you have the toast with whole-grain bread!
They are easy to make and pack in case you want to eat them for lunch at work or school and will taste just as scrumptious any time of the day.
Sausage Gravy Lasagna
Unlike other lasagna, this one is specifically seen as a breakfast specialty. Sausage gravy lasagna is arguably the most delicious tasting lasagna available (ironically, it is the one the least people know about).
They are very easy to make (keep in mind though, they take over 10 hours to prepare). The way the sausage and gravy mix with the milk, vegetables, and lasagna is an experience you do not want to miss out on.
Take it to work, eat it for dinner, or have it during breakfast as usual; no matter what, you will fall in love this delicious meal.
Considering it is right in the name, it is safe to say these are most popularly eaten as a breakfast meal. Potatoes are one of the most famous healthy, delicious, and mouth-watering food delicacies out there, and these do not disappoint whatsoever.
You dice these potatoes up in little pieces and bake them with your favorite vegetables and peppers (with the option to add your meat of choice, of course). With them only taking 50 minutes to make, the end product will leave you wondering why you never tried these before.
You are more than free to eat these breakfast potatoes any time during the day; they last for quite a while in a cooler/flask, and you don’t have to be worried about them getting soggy or anything of that sort!
