1. Quaker Oatmeal
I love quaker oatmeal! They have great flavors with low sugar and you can easily pour the oatmeal into a bowl with water and heat it up in one minute. Take out the bowl from the microwave and you have the tastiest oatmeal ever. If you were truly on the go and didn’t even have time for those shenanigans then you could pick up one of the Quaker oatmeal packets, throw it in your purse and scavenge for some water and a microwave wherever you land.
Taking one of these packets to the office, not only will people be wondering what that amazing smell is (especially with the cinnamon flavor), but they will be jealous you have such a delicious and cute bowl of oatmeal for the morning. You could even make it a snack throughout the day to satisfy your cravings and keep your mind going strong for all of the hard work you have to get to. This is one healthy breakfast option you will want even when you aren’t on the go!
2. Fruity Smoothie
I love a good fruit smoothie, they are delicious, easy to make and can be super healthy for the start of your day! Not to mention fruit has healthy sugars that will energize you, not make your energy go up and down and then crash throughout the day. I love making either a strawberry banana or blueberry and banana smoothie, its always delicious and has a bit of added protein in there with some Fage yogurt. That way, instead of wasting your time with eating some delicious food, you can blend it all up, and drink it all the way up while going to work, class, or a meeting!
In my smoothies, I do some ice, about a cup of Almond Milk, whichever fruit you choose being strawberry and banana or blueberry and banana and then I add in some Fage yogurt which has twenty grams of protein per serving…wow. I blend all of that up and it is so delicious and always keeps my energy on check!
3. Pre-Made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cups

This is a little meal prep that’ll make your mornings all the better. Healthy, tasty, and curbing some sugar cravings with a delicious muffin like option. And how exactly do you make them?

4. Simple Avocado Toast
If you have a couple minutes, you can whip up some simple avocado toast. Who doesn’t love a good avocado toast moment? It’s delicious, satisfying and gets you ready for the day with some healthy fats. How could you ever go wrong? I like to spoon out some avocado and put it into a bowl, mash it up with a fork and then spread on my toast. You can then add some salt and pepper if you’d like or choose another spice you think would go great with your toast. It’ll only take a couple of minutes and then you can rush out of the house or dorm room as planned.
An easy toast recipe that you can eat on the way, and a healthy one at that.
5. Fage Yogurt With Granola
Fage has become one of my personal go-to favorite greek yogurts. I always get the zero percent one without any fat but it has twenty grams of protein. That way it’ll get me ready for the day and feeling nice and strong. I usually go with some Kind granola, my favorite is either the blueberry or dark chocolate one. The dark chocolate granola with the Fage is without a doubt a treat I never knew I needed in my life. Now that I’ve let you in on the secret, you never knew either! It’s one of the healthiest breakfast options for your on the go morning. Just like the avocado toast, it may take some time to whip up but it is a quicker option than making eggs that’s for sure!
Fage with granola is an easy, healthy and tasty option that you can have for all types of meals throughout the day, but it will be best for breakfast when you are starting up your day!
