Back-to-school mornings: Top 5 quick, healthy breakfast recipes.

August 25, 2015

It’s back to school and everyone is talking about school lunch. I get it: packing a lunchbox day after day can feel like a seriously thankless chore. For me, though, figuring out quick, healthy breakfasts for busy school day mornings is the big challenge. After an enthusiastic start, I inevitably find it hard to sustain a morning routine of anything more than smoothies and a bowl of cereal. Not very inspired, which is why, this school year, I want to help you—and myself!—by collecting quick, healthy breakfast recipes that we can rely on all year long in one place.

Look no further.

My Top 5 Quick, Healthy Breakfast Recipes are definitely the place to start. The recipes in this video are my go-to lifesavers. They are easy, my kids like them, and they have sustained the test of time. You can’t ask for more.

Oh wait: Yes you can! And they are delicious, too.

These 5 recipes will be the foundation of your busy weekday morning routine, but there’s more.

Once I took control of breakfast, I needed a kick ass breakfast meal plan that I could execute brainlessly.

Breakfast recipes are great—important, even!—but, lets be honest, sometimes you just need to pour a bowl of cereal or grab something store-bought. It’s not as bad as it sounds with more and more brands offering healthy supermarket options—you just need to know how to find them. Last year I spoke with a nutritionist who helped put together advice on how to choose healthy breakfast foods at the store.

Hopefully, all these tips, recipes, and ideas will get you off to a good start on good starts. Here we go!
