These are 3 of my favorite, simple, go-to meals for a quick.healthy breakfast.
This might be my most frequent lineup; Toast, avocado, sprinkled flax seed, topped with a poached egg, its yolk ready to pour over it all, and meld it together. Filling, full of protein and fiber, and quick. Just add a little vinegar to your pot, heat the water just short of boiling, and cook the egg for about 3 minutes.
The next breakfast can be made on the weekend, and stored for a quick grab; Egg cups. Add your favorite vegetables, meat and/or cheese, and eggs. I line each muffin cup with prosciutto, mix eggs, spinach, red pepper, onion, mushroom and cheese in a bowl, pour evenly, and bake them about 20 minutes. You can keep them in an airtight container or wrap in parchment paper in a freezer bag and freeze. Just warm them in the oven or microwave and breakfast is served.
Another easy, make-ahead breakfast; overnight oats. If you haven't heard of these, you can search Pinterest for dozens of combinations. My favorite is coconut, chocolate chip & almond. Add equal amounts oats, milk, and yogurt (I use Siggis vanilla or Greek yogurt). Mix in your favorite additions (in this case, a few mini chocolate chips and coconut) and keep it in the fridge overnight. I add toasted almonds on top just before eating. These are good cold or warmed up. I make up a few in ball jars over the weekend and grab them throughout the week. Perfect for eating in or running out the door and good for the whole family.
Just a few ideas to save time and 'hanger', ready in the time it takes to brew your morning coffee. What are your favorite breakfast ideas?
