It is true when they say that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Teens have to get up early for school and sometimes don’t take the time to prepare a healthy breakfast-or any breakfast at all. I’ve created a couple recipes for my favorite nutritious breakfasts that don’t take a lot of time!
note: both of these recipes were put together by me; however, I’m sure there are some out they that are very very similar. I did not take any recipes from other websites or blogs. These are just things that I have been making for breakfast lately!
- Sweet yogurt granola bowl.
I love this combo for when I am needing to get out the door! It is pretty basic, but you can add different toppings to fir your personal preferences.
I start with a single package of Dannon Light and Fit® Greek Yogurt and put it in a bowl. (you could just keep it in the package if you are really in a rush, but it looked better in a bowl for this post)
I like to add a little bit of granola for some texture. I’ve been loving the Bear Naked® honey almond granola. I take 1/8 of a cup and just dump it on the top.
To add some sweetness, I put a drizzle of honey over the top of it all. The Greek Yogurt that I used is already pretty sweet, so it doesn’t really need this, but some greek yogurts out there need the extra sweet flavoring.
And that’s it for the first recipe! This one is the fastest one, and it super nutritious containing both protein and dairy!
2. Guacamole and egg toast
This is my favorite breakfast right now! It is a little strange, but it is so so good and super filling! It is the most time consuming, (about 5-10 minutes) but still is considered quick!
I begin by taking two slices of bread and putting them in to toaster on low. While the bread is toasting, I get a pan heated up on the stove. (timing for this recipe is the hardest part, but it just takes a couple of times to nail it.) When the bread comes out, I take half a package of the Wholly Guacamole® minis and spread it onto the bread.
Then, I take one egg and mix it up in a small bowl.
From there, just scramble the egg and split it up evenly onto the peaches of bread. I like to add salt and pepper to the toast, and a half of a banana on the side.
Can you say YUMMMM?! Yes! This is so filling! I love love love it! It only has 308 calories, and contains grains, vegetables, protein, and fruit!
Be sure to tweet me pictures of your recreations!
