3 Quick and Easy Breakfast Foods To Eat During Your Commute
Who has time to get up early everyday before work and make a hearty, healthy meal? Nobody, that’s who. But, that’s no excuse for hitting up the drive-through each morning, or worse, skipping breakfast entirely. Here are three quick and easy foods you can prepare to eat on your way to work, no matter what kind of morning person you are.
For the Ever-Hungry Morning Adventurer: Breakfast Burrito
Maybe it’s a savory breakfast you’re craving, or maybe you just need to fill your stomach. Whatever your reason is for wanting a hot and ready breakfast, this breakfast burrito recipe is sure to fill that desire. While this recipe calls for a Western-style burrito made with eggs, salsa, and avocado, the beauty of the burrito lies in its versatility. Add or remove any ingredients to your fancy; really, the burrito is what you make of it. Another draw to this tasty breakfast time item is that fact that it’s freezable, so if you make a large batch in advance, all you have to do is chuck one in the microwave before taking off in the morning, and you’ll be good to go!
For the Light of Stomach: Baked Oatmeal Cups
Perhaps you’d fancy something a little lighter and more manageable for your daily commute? These good-looking and good-for-you baked oatmeal cups might be more up your alley. There’s plenty to love about this recipe: the cups are bite-sized, with no need to microwave, so you can just store them and grab them ready you’re ready to hit the road. The cups allow for portion control, too, as you can make as many or as few as you want. And there’s no need to worry about washing up, as there’s little mess you’ll be making when you eat them. Just make sure you eat them all up before you get to work, or you might be forced to share!
For the Low-Maintenance Health Nut: Fruit Smoothie
If you’re not the kind of person who needs a huge meal in the mornings, or if you’d rather keep your hands on ten-and-two while you focus on the road, something a little less “food-y” might be what you’re looking for in a morning meal. If so, try your hand at one of these healthy morning smoothies. Smoothies are surprisingly nutritious, with nutrients that will keep you going until lunch (or until an early snack, whichever comes first). There’s truly a smoothie for every taste, whether that taste leans toward fruits, vegetables, or both, with tons of room to experiment depending on how you like your drink. Plus, you’ll be able to drink them guilt-free, with the satisfaction of knowing you’re eating healthily. It sure beats that high-calorie super mocha frappuccino that you order every day.
If you find yourself crunched for time and with a growling stomach each morning, give these recipes a spin. They’re good, good for you, and perhaps most importantly, you’ll get to work on time. Don’t forget, breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
