Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas

If I can’t make breakfast quick, I am less likely to eat in the morning. Here are a few simple meals that leave me satisfied AND I enjoy:

PB Banana Smoothie:

1 banana – prefrozen in chunks
2-3 TBSP natural peanut butter or other nut butter (I like to keep mine frozen in ice cube trays)
½ cup of milk (whole milk works best)
A handful of ice

Blend all ingredients together and serve! I also use this as a sweet fix after dinner as well. You can lessen the amount of pb for a simple but tasty dessert.

Cheater Chilaquiles
1 corn tortilla cut into strips (works great with leftovers, I use sprouted corn tortillas)
1 egg, scrambled (the best eggs are from chickens who pastured!)
Salsa
Sour Cream (we use organic sour cream – and not the light stuff)
Salt, to taste
Pinch of cayenne
Pinch of garlic powder
Olive oil, butter, or coconut oil

Sauté tortilla strips in oil until they begin to get crispy. Salt to taste. Add egg , 1 spoonful of salsa, and seasonings. Scramble mixture until cooked to desired doneness. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Green Smoothie:
1 apple, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
Handful of spinach
Juice from 1 orange
½ frozen banana
½ cup frozen pineapple
¼ cup yogurt
Handful of ice

Blend and serve. Because of the apple, the texture might be a little grainy, but I still think it tastes good.

Make Ahead:
I also know someone who cooks little quiches in muffin tins as well as a whole pack of bacon – that way she has breakfast already cooked for the week, she just has to warm it up.

If I am running out of time to prepare anything I grab any combination of the following:
a glass of whole milk
a cup of yogurt
a cup of kefir
a handful of nuts
a piece of fruit
PB toast

What’s your favorite breakfast fix?
