We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But for many of us, mornings are the most chaotic time of the day–and breakfast is often the first thing to get lost in the shuffle. Here, we’ve gathered a few of our favorite healthful, make-ahead, grab-and-go breakfasts:
Fruit & Yogurt Parfaits
Easy, pretty, and tastes like dessert–what more can you ask for? Just layer plain Greek yogurt, fruit (berries and stone fruit are great options), granola and nuts in a glass or mason jar. Even simpler: forget the “parfait” part and just mix it all up in your favorite cereal bowl.
Make-Ahead Fruit & Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits
A versatile option perfect for making ahead and freezing. Eggs and black beans pack a protein punch, and it’s easy (and delicious) to mix in nutrient-rich veggies, like spinach and sweet potatoes.
Black Bean Breakfast Burritos
Mix up a batch of these at the beginning of the week and freeze for the busy mornings ahead (they’re also perfect for packing in school lunches and taking to work for afternoon snacks). Muffins are also super-versatile–make them sweet with fruit, honey, or a bit of brown sugar, or try a prosciutto-and-chives version for a savory snack.
