Getting Out the Door Busy Morning Breakfast Guide

breakfastDo you have breakfast on the go, or do you go without breakfast?  I am guessing most of us, or if you do not skip breakfast than you might fall into the “eat the granola bar with your coffee as you walk into work or drive the kiddos around” category. Let’s face it our mornings are rushed and tackling the day’s tasks can seem  more important to us than sitting down to eat breakfast.

All this week we are going to be focusing on getting out the door in the morning and one of the best ways to do that is to have some Busy Morning Breakfast Ideas.

But,whether it’s sitting around the table, or  breakfast on the go  it’s so important! It provides the energy we need to start the day, it gets our metabolism going and we all want that to work right?  So how do we start the day off on the right foot, make it quick, easy and healthy and stay on time?

Below are a few links to give you some ideas about breakfast on the go. Many can be made ahead or take little to no time at all to prepare.

If you have kids there is plenty you can do to set up the night before.

  1. Before bed set the table with the bowls, spoons, napkins and cereal choices. Add any fruit or bread items needed…anything that does not live in the fridge.
  2. Have a list in the kitchen of your current breakfast choices so you do not waste time hunting for food. I have a friend who types up breakfast choices for her kids and before she sends them to bed the kids initial what they want the next day. The list changes as her food choices change. This save several minutes each morning for everyone in the house.
  3. Set your coffee pot at night so by the time you wake up you have hot, fresh coffee.
  4. Use your Crock Pot for breakfast; it’s not just for dinner. Crock Pot Oatmeal ROCKS.
  5. Go ahead and chop the fruit or peel it and place it in a Ziploc bag. If you are prepping apples toss with lemon juice to prevent browning.
  6. Have  breakfast on the go choices ready: cheese sticks, yogurts, nuts and homemade breads sliced and in a container as well so you can grab it on your way out the door.

  1. I love having breakfast in the freezer– the best way is to double whatever you are making (waffles, egg sandwiches) and freeze the extras.

  2. I make up a bunch of breakfast burritos, pancakes, or breakfast sandwiches (on English Muffins), wrap them in parchment paper individually and put into a large freezer bag. My boys can microwave them in the morning and have a hot, hearty breakfast before we walk out the door.

  3. I make muffins the night before and they smell so good that my kids can’t wait to gobble them up in the morning.

  4. I prepare breakfast meals the night before, if I am using the stove. If I have a pan used from dinner, that is still clean, I will make eggs and throw in anything else I have like chicken or spinach or cheese.
    I also enjoy leftover pizza for breakfast. It has all the meal essentials of carbs, protein and fat!
    If I am have 5 minutes to get a meal together, I will grab a piece of bread and smear peanut butter on it and eat it open faced. Less calories and healthy!

  5. We make breakfast burritos and egg bacon and cheese muffins for the freezer and reheat and go on busy mornings.

  6. I keep my freezer stocked with healthy made-ahead breakfast items, mainly muffins and breads.

  7. I save bread ends in the freezer. When I have enough saved up, I put together a baked French toast. I put it together in the evening and bake it the next morning. Frugal, fast, and delicious! Bran muffins are another favorite. The batter will keep for a few weeks in the fridge, but it never lasts that long!

  8. I just have plain fat free yogurt and whatever fruit and honey if necessary. If I have granola, I add that. The whole thing is eaten at work – I’m not a wake up and eat person.

  9. My husband cooks breakfast while I get the rest of us ready to go. On days we don’t have time for a hot breakfast, we like zucchini or banana bread.

  10. I make a large pan of Baked Oatmeal, and we warm up individual portions for the next couple mornings!

  11. One of the ways I make breakfast easy is to prepare it the night before. I found a great cookbook called Sleep On It and it is a bunch of recipes from bed and breakfasts around the country. There are so many options like stuffed French toast, egg casserole, etc. All you do is take a few minutes to throw it together the night before, put it in the fridge, and then put it in the oven in the morning. Easy peasy. 😉

  12. We have a breakfast schedule, same breakfast every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (you get the picture). The only difference is when Hubby has the day off, I make a special breakfast. I know that having cereal, toast, and a banana every Monday is not all that exciting but it helps me to always have the things I need for breakfast on hand and it keeps the kids from asking “What are we having for breakfast?” I also do this with lunch.

  13. I make smoothies every morning. Not super fast but I am used to it now, and it’s a good way to get healthy food into all of us in the morning. I love the crock pot breakfast idea – can’t wait to try it!

  14. My kids love simply toast with honey or cinnamon and sugar on busy mornings
