Breakfast Made Easy



We’ve all heard the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” However, most students can agree that finding the time to make a meal in the morning just doesn’t mix well with a busy college schedule. Don’t skip out on breakfast; check out these early morning meal options that are quick, simple and perfect for on-the-go college students.

1. Yogurt

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a cup of yogurt. Grab a spoon and diminish your morning hunger with a simple cup of yogurt, whether that be vanilla or fruit-flavored. Add a handful of berries to add some extra flavor, or add a sweetener like sugar, honey or 2-3 drops of flavor extract to give your morning snack a little kick.

2. Bananas 

Bananas are filled with potassium, a vitamin that promotes bone and muscle strength. Potassium also helps prevent fatigue, which makes this breakfast-friendly snack a perfect source of energy during the mornings. Bananas are small enough to eat on your walk to class, or they can be slipped into your backpack and eaten at a later time.

3. Toast. 

Popping a piece of bread in the toaster for a few minutes while you’re getting your backpack around before class is the easiest way to make breakfast in the morning. One of the best things about toast is that you can pile on a variety of toppings and spreads. If you’re craving sweets, add jam to your toast. If you’re interested in eating healthy, layer your toast with avocado. 

4. Apple Slices. 

Apples are packed with fiber, vitamins and minerals. Whether you choose to eat them plain or add a little protein to your diet by dipping them in peanut butter, apple slices are an easy and healthy alternative to a traditional breakfast. 

5. Muffins. 

Sometimes breakfast can require a little pre-planning. During the weekend, plan your breakfast accordingly by making breakfast muffins. There are a variety of muffin recipes online that focus around fruit-filled or egg muffins.
