Lately its been a lot more up and go in my kitchen which means grabbing hands, fast munching, and sometimes not the healthiest breakfast choices. When you find yourself pouncing on leftover cold ziti (for breakfast!) you know that its time to do a little refrigerator adjustment. So my solution was to stock my pantry with some easy, get up and go options.
One of my favorite breakfasts is a parfait.
For this parfait I used nonfat plain yogurt, sliced fresh strawberries, honey, and a pre-made granola. The result: a delicious meal that got me off to a good start to my day.
You can use any fruit you want, use any granola (or make your own), and vary your layers by using different flavors of yogurt. The best part is that the granola keeps, you can buy yogurt in large containers, and you can change up your fruit. This is such a versatile standard that you will not bore easily.
Other great breakfasts on the fly:
fried egg sandwich (for the long day to come)
homemade oatmeal with raisins, brown sugar, and walnuts
hard boiled eggs with salt, pepper, and cayenne (made the night prior and easy to transport)
a smoothie (you can use your yogurt and fruit for this as well)
and many, many more breakfasts.
The key is planning ahead to save time later. Enjoy!
