There's nothing like a warm cup of coffee to start your morning off on the right foot. The delightful taste and aroma will instantly open your eyes and get you ready for the day ahead. However, you should also pair your cup of coffee with a hearty and nutritious breakfast; otherwise, you'll be running strictly on caffeine. The only problem is that most people have a very limited time schedule in the morning, making it difficult to fix a huge breakfast. If this sounds like a familiar scenario, keep reading and we'll reveal some quick and easy on-the-go breakfast ideas that anyone can make.
A cup of yogurt is a highly-nutritious dish that's loaded with beneficial calcium, vitamins, protein and probiotics (aid in digestion). Instead of just eating a plain cup of yogurt, you can give it some more sustenance by mixing in chopped fruit and granola pieces for an additional kick of nutrition. A plain cup of vanilla yogurt can easily be transformed into a full, on-the-go breakfast meal by adding some chopped bananas, strawberries, blueberries and granola pieces. Best of all, this deliciously healthy breakfast should only cost you a couple bucks, making it a great choice for budget-conscious shoppers.
The thought of preparing and cooking biscuits in the morning might throw some people off. After all, doesn't it take about 10-20 minutes for biscuits to cook in the oven? Well, the trick is to cook your biscuits the night before so you can simply heat them up in the microwave and hit the road. Just cook a batch of regular butter biscuits, cut them in half, and then add a couple strips of ham to them. You can also add mustard, gravy or any other ingredients you prefer. Once you are done, place them in a sandwich baggie or plastic container until the morning. These are quick, delicious breakfast biscuits that will satisfy your early morning hunger cravings.
Instant oatmeal is another quick and easy breakfast dish that only takes a couple of minutes to make. Just pour some boiling water over the oatmeal and it's ready to eat. Of course, you can also add other ingredients to give it more nutritional value and flavor. Some of the ingredients I enjoy eating my oatmeal breakfast with are apples, bananas and cinnamon. Don't be afraid to experiment with different ingredients to see what tastes best.
