Breakfast Options for On-the-Go

Now that I two girls in school (at two different places) my mornings are even crazier.  I do major prep the night before but no matter how much I accomplish the night before the mornings are still pretty chaotic.  I've had to set the alarm earlier in the morning just to get it all done and out the door on time.  Since the mornings are rushed it's hard to fit in breakfast but I am NOT one of those people who can skip breakfast.  I literally wake up hungry and feel sick if I don't eat within a short amount of time.  I wanted to share some healthy and fast breakfast options with you because I know most people are just as rushed in the morning as I am.

Danon Light & Fit Nonfat Yogurt Drink

Each drink is 90 calories, 0 added sugar and 9 grams of protein.  For me I have to get some protein in with breakfast to hold me over until lunch.  This is seriously the easiest option for breakfast on the go.  I have nothing to prepare and I can drink it at home or even in the car on the way to school.  Best part is that it tastes great!

Here's another reason to try Danon's Light & Fit Yogurt Drinks...$1.00 off offer though Ibotta.

Zucchini Muffins

  • 3 cups grated fresh zucchini
  • 2/3 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup walnuts, raisins or cranberries (optional)

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the grated zucchini and then the melted butter.
2 In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Stir these dry ingredients into the zucchini mixture. (Do not over-mix!) Stir in walnuts, raisins or cranberries if using.
3 Coat each muffin cup in your muffin pan with a little butter or vegetable oil spray. Use a spoon to distribute the muffin dough equally among the cups, filling the cups up completely.
4 Bake on the middle rack until muffins are golden brown, and the top of the muffins bounce back when you press on them, about 20 to 25 minutes. Test with a long toothpick to make sure the center of the muffins are done.

Avocado Toast

  • Bread of Choice
  • Butter
  • Sliced Avocado

It doesn't get much easier than this...toast your bread, lightly butter and top with sliced avocado.

Another tip I want to share with you is Walmart Grocery Pickup.  I just used it for the first time and it was life changing!  You can order online or with the app, pay and then they give you a pickup time.  I've only used the service once and I ordered just before noon and the pickup time I was given was between 7 and 8 pm.  Once your order is ready you get an email.  On your way to pickup you check in with the app, you park in designated parking on the side of Walmart.  A service person came out within 1 minute to deliver my groceries.  If they are out of any of the items they offer you an alternative but you're not obligated to keep it.  They were out of the sour cream size I ordered and they gave me the bigger container but charged me for the smaller container.  I was so impressed with the efficiency, the ease and how helpful the clerk was.  I think this will be my new way of shopping!!!  By the way they can not accept tips.
