One thing I learned on my journey to lose the baby weight (I only have 4 pounds left!!) is that you must eat breakfast.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I spent last week posting several  new breakfast ideas.
My favorite Breakfasts (especially when I need to hurry off in the morning) or simply oats I make the night before and just let them chill in the fridge overnight. I’m a personal trainer and I always stress to my clients just how important breakfast is. Lately I’ve been loving bacon eggs and fruit or my new pakeo granola crunch great ideas!
I’m pretty sure that the promise of breakfast is a big part of the reason that I get out of bed in the morning. I’ve recently started having some eggs for breakfast, and I feel so much fuller throughout the day.
As you can see, most of the items on the list are either in the freezer or the pantry so they keep indefinitely and last for awhile.
Hope this helps you break out of the breakfast box if you’re looking for some fresh ideas. I'm a design and DIY lover, decorator, and jill-of-all-trades when it comes to home improvement, adding classic-contemporary style to my late 80's colonial home one inch at a time.
It's often messy, there are usually project remnants strewn about, and practically always a little girl at my heels.
As a Registered Dietitian, I’m always looking to help people make healthy living choices. Combine some ice, frozen fruit, plain Greek yogurt and a couple handfuls of spinach or kale in a blender.
Most of these can be made in under 5 minutes…the one with the eggs takes the longest and I timed it…mine was done in 7 minutes! On her blog, she shares simple, healthy recipes, nutrition tips, workouts and snapshots of her life.
Thanks for the ideas and proving that you don’t need a lot of time in the morning to make breakfast happen.


I always have cereal and toast, not the most sustaining, but at least it’s food in my tummy.
Today I’m honing in on the other hectic meal situation when school or work is happening – breakfast!
Part of where I found myself wasting time in the morning was standing in front of the fridge wracking my brain for ideas. Similar to the scrambled egg & veggies, but you scramble up 1 large egg, 1 tbsp of mild green chilies (I always have these in a Tupperware container waiting to be used), handful of spinach and ? cup cooked black beans. I am a big fan of the multi-grain cheerios and serve that up with some vanilla almond milk and I’m golden. My favorite right now would be oatmeal with almond butter and honey, but I’m also partial to yogurt messes loaded with cereal, fruit, and AB.
But I knew very early that I didn’t want that to be the regular routine for me or my daughters.
Feeding the kid, cleaning up the mess, getting the kid and you ready, packing up the diaper bag and any other objects before you dash to your destination.
Yoplait takes all the hard work out of making smoothies for you, you just have to add milk and then clean the blender. Toast a wheat English muffin and add a tbsp of peanut butter to each piece (or you can use almond butter). Grab a bowl or cup (red solo cup if your on the go!) and spoon some vanilla yogurt (If you have a Publix- you MUST buy their fat free vanilla yogurt….it’s so good it’s sinful!), spoon some granola (I love the Naked brand), toss in some blueberries, add some more yogurt, granola and then blueberries again. But when my oldest daughter, who is now in first grade, started school my breakfast world was rocked.
I’ve also noticed that I feel much, much better when I eat a breakfast more like what I have here. So when I come down in the morning I look at the list and between what I feel like eating and what I have on hand I can make a quick decision about what I want to eat.
Well today I bring you 12 quick and healthy breakfast options for those crazy on the go mornings. Before I even head in to get Lily from her crib I will mix ? cup of old fashioned oats with 1 cup vanilla almond milk and heat it for 3 minutes.


Next time you make the huge mess of making some healthy pancakes from scratch, make a little more and freeze them! Open one of their frozen packs and dump it in your blender, add low fat milk and blend until you have a yummy smoothie. The best part is that Lily LOVES this drink too and with four cups of spinach I am happy to let her slurp it up! When the egg starts to firm on the bottom of the pan, add a handful of spinach and sprinkle some goat cheese (you can use any cheese you like!).
I used to add three heaping spoons of sugar to my Grape Nuts as a kid, but the banana and vanilla almond milk makes it sweet enough. Top that slice with the scrambled egg, sprinkle some cheese and then top with the other toasted English muffin for a yummy breakfast sandwhich!
I had a hard time figuring out a morning routine that included a good solid breakfast and still got us out the door on time.
There are also staples that I almost always have in the house and they make the breakfasts below both possible and super fast.
Most pancakes only take 30 seconds to heat up (watch out for over cooking them, they will turn rubbery!). My adaptation of the recipe is = in a blender place 4 cups of baby spinach, 1 tbsp of peanut butter, 1 frozen banana (make sure you peel your banana and cut in in half before you freeze it to make it easier for you!), 1 cup vanilla almond milk. I have tried without a straw and I always end up with a wall of frozen yogurt up my nose and all over my neck and shirt! Sprinkle some cinnamon, add 1 tbsp of peanut butter and drizzle a little honey (or agave nectar) and you have a something so good your toddler will want seconds. You can also pour the egg & veggie scramble into a wheat pita and sprinkle some low fat mozzarella on top.
