Don’t be afraid to be basic when it comes to breakfast, and Avo Toast is just as basic as it gets. Toast your favorite kind of whole grain bread and slice half of an avocado to spread on the toast. Top with pepper or chili flakes for an extra kick.
Avocados are the superfood of our generation. They are full of vitamins and healthy fats, providing all the nutrients needed to keep you full during your morning classes. And if you have an extra five minutes, scramble some egg whites for extra protein to kick-start your morning!
Blueberry Muffin in a Mug
A perfect single serving muffin that cooks right before your eyes! Muffin in a mug is a quick breakfast meal that takes two minutes to whip up! First, pour the mix from the packet into the mug and add about 3 tablespoons of water. And then pop the mug into the microwave for a minute and a half and watch it rise! I like to add some fresh blueberries for extra antioxidants!
These muffins are loaded with calcium and iron giving you just the right amount of energy to hold you over until lunch!
Chia Seed Pudding
Want a healthier alternative to yogurt? Look no further than chia seed pudding! Combine 2 cups of coconut or almond milk with a ½ cup of chia seeds. Mix in ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract and maple syrup to taste. It takes just 5 minutes to make and is perfect to eat while running across campus to class.
Who would have thought that little tiny chia seeds could be such nutritious powerhouses? In just one serving you will be loading your body with fiber, protein, calcium, and potassium, among other healthy fats and vitamins.
The more colorful your breakfast, the better day you’ll have! First, gather your ingredients. Frozen fruit works the best and is already sliced for you- strawberries and blueberries work really well. Combine the fruit, ½ cup of almond milk, spinach, and chia seeds and a scoop of your favorite protein powder (vanilla would work the best) in a blender and blend until smooth. Add some yummy toppings like shaved coconut, fresh fruit, almonds, and a scoop of almond butter!
This smoothie will not only give you tons of energy, it is packed with vitamins and nutrients, not to mention protein as well!
Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
Don’t have the time or resources to make breakfast in the morning? No worries! These breakfast cookies can be made the night before to grab the next morning while you are running out the door! Combine ¾ cup of plain oats, 2 mashed bananas, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 2 teaspoons of your favorite sweetener in a bowl. Spoon small amounts of the batter onto a cookie sheet and bake them in an oven set 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
These cookies have lots of protein and fiber to fill you up and give you energy throughout the day.
