10 Quick Breakfast Ideas for Busy People That Feels Great

And when we say “quick” breakfast, we mean quick!

If you’re like many of our clients, you’re constantly on-the-go and really don’t have time to put breakfast together. Many times you may end up skipping a meal or purchasing a drive-thru breakfast sandwich. You may then struggle with the 4:00 crash or the nighttime hunger. We see the clients that eat a more nutrient-rich breakfast tend to feel more satisfied throughout the day and don’t feel quite as hungry at night.

We’ve put together 10 non-typical, grab-n-go quick breakfast ideas to set your morning up with success! 

But first… Keep that breakfast the right temperature on-the-go!

Protein Coffee

Quick and sustained energy with this coffee! You won’t be feeling a crash with this breakfast! Mix 1 cup of Premier Protein (Caramel, Vanilla, Chocolate, or your flavor of choice) with 1 ½ cup of freshly brewed coffee and ice. 

Cottage Cheese + Mixed Berries

This quick breakfast is as simple as it sounds! Prep in a container the night before and you’re golden! We recommend 1 cup of cottage cheese and 1 cup of mixed berries! 

Freezer Kodiak Cakes + Peanut Butter

Give your blood sugars a better fuel with Kodiak Cakes. This is one that you’ll need to prep ahead of time but is easy once you’ve made a batch. We like adding 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed to the mix. They even have a plant-based option for our plant-forward friends! Pull out of the freezer the night before and add peanut butter the morning of!

Overnight Blueberry Chia & Oats

Get started with FIBER! Did you know that two tablespoons of chia = 10 grams of fiber or 40% of your daily value? You’ll be “regular” after this breakfast! And that fiber will keep you full. Here’s the full recipe.

Pre-Sliced Packaged Apples + Justin’s Nut Butter Packets

We love this portable nut butter! Keep things clean while you’re on the road or at your desk with Justin’s nut butter packets and some fruit. Justin’s has a ton of different flavors for your palate!

Handful of Walnuts + Banana

Why walnuts? Walnuts have Omega-3’s, which can be hard to get in your diet if you don’t include a lot of fish. Omega-3’s are linked to improved mental health and focus!

High Protein Overnight Oats

Use that Premier Protein again for some overnight oats! Combine equal amounts of protein drink and dry oats. Sprinkle in a teaspoon or two of flaxseed to bump up the nutrition!

Boiled Eggs + Avocado Cups

Here’s another prep ahead option. Boil eggs, peel them, place them and place two eggs in individual bags. Grab the bag and an avocado cup for your breakfast! Feel free to add a few whole-grain crackers for crunch.

Rx or Orgain Bars

We recommend Rx bar or Orgain bar because of the macros! These are both pretty balanced between carbs, protein, and fat. Many bars out there will be too low in protein or too low in carbs. We also love how clean the ingredient lists are!

Cold Veggie Pizza 

Are you a cold pizza kind of person? Next time you order pizza, order a veggie-packed pizza, refrigerate it, and enjoy a slice for breakfast!
