Getting out the door in the morning is hectic! Do yourself a favor and prep a week’s worth of healthy, on-the-go breakfasts NOW. From a freezable breakfast burrito to a creamy chia pudding, all of these recipes are hearty and packed with all of the nutrients and fiber you need first thing in the morning. Start your day off on the right foot with one of these craveable breakfast recipes.
Already daydreaming about spring break? Get the vacation started early with this tropical, creamy (and dairy-free!) chia pudding from Bon Appétit Magazine. This pudding benefits from sitting overnight in the fridge, so make it on Sunday and then enjoy it all week long. Your mornings have never been easier.
Making your own freezable breakfast burritos is a great way to control the levels of sodium and the freshness of ingredients in your food. For these vegetarian-friendly burritos from Cookie and Kate, let them cool completely before wrapping in plastic wrap and freezing. Pull them out one by one and microwave for breakfast at the office or use them all for a stress-free brunch with friends.
How adorable are these mini frittatas from the blog Café Delites? Plus, the possibilities are endless! Whisk up your egg custard and then cut up some ham or breakfast sausage, saute whatever vegetables you have in your fridge and fold in a couple of herbs, and these eggy little bites can be whatever you want them to be. They’re great right out of the oven, but you can also let them cool completely, pull one or two out of the fridge and pop them in the microwave throughout the week.
Learn how to make your own granola bars and better control your sugar intake for the day – it’s easier than you think! These bars from Food & Wine Magazine have no added sugar, aside from the natural sugars of the fruit. The sticky Medjool dates are all these bars need to hold the toasted oats, walnuts and dried fruit together.
These yogurt parfaits from Simple Scratch are as easy as it gets, PLUS you can make them a day in advance. If your freezer is full of frozen fruit waiting to be turning into a smoothie, this is the time to use it. Fill little jars with a ½ cup of your favorite yogurt (this can be Greek, coconut yogurt or a plain vanilla) and then top each one with a few pieces of frozen fruit. Finish off each jar with a ¼ cup of granola (preferably homemade!) and seal them up for breakfast the next morning or an after-school/work snack. The genius thing about this recipe is that as the frozen fruit thaws, it releases sweet juices that seep into the yogurt. It’s just like having a dollop of jam on your parfait, but without all of the extra sugar.
