Breakfast foods are delicious so I see no reason to skip this meal even if you are in a rush. Even if you do not believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, these on the go breakfast foods are sure to tempt you to get into the habit. Read on for some ideas for foods you can take with you as you rush out the door in the mornings.
Pancake rolls are an easy food to take out the door with you in the mornings. You can make them the night before or even days in advance. Fill them with sweet jams, nut butters, bananas, cheese, eggs, or even (vegan) bacon. These are basically crepes so anything you see on a crepe shop menu is fair game. Add protein to them for an extra boost in the morning or, if sugar is more your fuel, add a big pile of lemon sugar. This recipe gives you guidance for both the pancake batter as well as filling. However, if you are planning to eat them on the go, swap the juicy berry filling for something less drippy.
For this entry, we can treat fast food chains as our role models and be inspired by their breakfast wraps. Wrap up some scrambled eggs, cheese, avocados, or even a hash brown in a tortilla and have a nutritious breakfast that is as easy to eat as a banana! Make them the night before if you don’t mind them cold or in the morning for a breakfast that will warm you right up. One of the commenters in this yummy looking recipe even freezes them! This is a great way to have homemade versions of those burritos you find in the freezer section of stores.
Mason Jar Porridge
Overnight oats is an on the go breakfast classic. These are so easy to prepare the night before and all you have to do in the morning is take it out of the fridge so you can get out of the door in no time! The oats will keep you full and the recipe is relatively customisable. Add berries, bananas, cinnamon, maple syrup, or nuts depending on your preferred flavours. Use lactose-free milk, plant-based milk, or cow’s milk for porridge that will suit your diet. Follow this link for the basic recipe for overnight oats.
Ever since I saw fast food lunch places selling hard-boiled eggs, I have come to see all the ways that hard boiled eggs are a great on the go food. They give you protein and energy in zero time and with minimal effort on your part. Best of all, you can very easily prepare hard-boiled eggs to keep in the fridge the night before and take them out with you in the morning. The only problem is that they can be a little stinky, so try to eat them in the car, on the sidewalk, or by a window.
Nut Butter and Apple Sandwiches
This recipe is absolutely adorable. Sandwich nut butter and granola between apple slices for a colourful, delicious, and convenient snack or light breakfast. The crispy apples and creamy nut butter filling make this a delicious and healthy treat. Skip the granola if it is not to your taste. Make these sandwiches with one or two apples the night before and put them in a reusable food baggie for something to brighten up your morning.
