The mornings are busy for all of us—I'm pretty sure of that. We've got tons of stuff we have to do throughout the day, and we can only hope that we don't pass out by noon. We need all the energy we can get to get through the day, but we often forego breakfast, making a rough day inevitable. 

But we don't have time for breakfast! We push the snooze button about a thousand times and sometimes even skip out on the shower. (Except for me. I never do that …) If only there was a way to find something quick and healthy to eat for breakfast …

Have no fear! I've rounded up some of the best breakfasts that are super quick to make and can be taken with you while you're on the run.

Apricot, Banana, & Cantaloupe Smoothie

My favorite breakfast when I'm on the run is wheat toast with cottage cheese and bananas. You've got your carbs, your protein, and a serving of fruit. But there is one huge drawback to my breakfast. I always end up with cottage cheese splattered on my shoes and crumbs that litter my coat and tie.

But I need the nutrition! Here's the solution: an apricot, banana, & cantaloupe smoothie! It's obviously loaded with fruit, and it's packed with protein and carbs that you'll need to stay energized throughout the day.

The apricot, banana, & cantaloupe smoothie is the non-messy way to get all of the nutrition that you need to get through the day.

Paleo Banana Walnut Muffins

Do you like muffins? Do you like bananas? Do you like diets that help you avoid processed foods? Then these muffins are going to hit the sweet spot for you in the morning. The Paleo Diet is a diet that is becoming more and more popular because it avoids processed foods, and it's probably best to start the day off with something really healthy. 

In addition to their value, these muffins are so good. Just look at it! It looks so good!

So with all that said, paleo banana walnut muffins are the ideal breakfast when you're pressed for time.

Easy Granola

When you're super late for work or for school or whatever you're actually late for, what do you grab as you are sprinting out the door? Well, if you're like me, you grab a granola bar. They're packed with nutrition, and they taste spectacular. The problem? They cost an arm and a leg!

There have been a few times where I've reached for a granola bar and thought, “Wait, I had one of these yesterday. I can't eat one every day if I still want to afford rent.” Needless to say, I go all day long trying to curb my hunger with frequent trips to the drinking fountain. Unfortunately, that doesn't cut it.

Here's a recipe for some easy granola that is, well, easy to make, and it tastes absolutely amazing!
