Banana and Almond Butter “Sandwich”
Okay, this isn’t a “breakfast” item… but anything you eat in the morning counts as breakfast, right? This chicken salad is quick and easy – all you need is leftover chicken, an avocado, and salsa!
Take a leftover chicken breast (or bake/grill/sauté one if you’re feeling ambitious) and shred it with a fork. Mix it into a mashed avocado and stir in some salsa for flavor.
Voila! You’ve made yourself breakfast in less than 5 minutes. When I’m in a hurry, I like to put the combination into Tupperware or the avocado skins so I can eat it with a plastic spoon in the car
Mason Jar Scramble
This breakfast can be made in just a couple of minutes and can be made differently every day with whatever veggies you have in your refrigerator. Or, you can throw all of the ingredients into the mason jar and cook it in the microwave when you get to work. You’ll make all of your co-workers jealous.
In a 10- or 12-oz jar, place 2 large eggs, 1 Tbsp almond milk or water, salt and pepper to taste. Screw the lid on tightly and shake until egg yolks have broken and all ingredients are mixed well. Add 1/4 cup packed baby spinach (chopped) and shake again. Remove the lid and microwave 60 seconds, then in 15-second intervals until just set. Top as desired.
Tasty Toppings: diced avocado + thinly sliced green onion | quartered grape tomatoes + torn fresh basil leaves | finely diced jalapenos + diced ham | crumbled bacon + diced bell peppers
Keto Option: Add shredded cheddar cheese to the jar after eggs, milk and seasonings have been combined. Or, top the scramble with cheese after fully cooked and allow it to melt over the top.
Tip: You don’t have to use a mason jar. Any glass container with a tight fitting lid will do. Heck, you can even mix the ingredients in a bowl and then move them to any microwaveable container to cook.
Breakfast Banana Split
This breakfast can be made the night before so you can just grab and go — or put it all together within minutes in the morning and eat at your table.
Halve a banana lengthwise and place on a plate. Spoon 1 cup coconut or low-fat Greek yogurt between the banana halves. Top with 1/4 cup each raspberries, blackberries and pineapple (or your favorite fresh fruits in season). Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed and 2 Tbsp chopped nuts.
I also always keep Larabars and beef/turkey jerky on hand for when I’m in a hurry to get somewhere and barely have time to brush my teeth, much less make breakfast.
Do you have any healthy breakfast ideas that you turn to when you’re in a hurry?
