Are there any balanced breakfast ideas with a short prep time, because I’m really busy in the mornings!

Make ahead items like egg bites are easy to bake up for the week. In the mornings, an egg bite takes 30 seconds or less to heat in a microwave.
Make ahead mason jars of steel cut oats can be topped with fruit and nuts for a grab and go breakfast.
Avocado on multigrain toast with a handful of greens and a splash of olive oil and balsamic is pretty quick to throw together.

Chia pudding! You can prepare it in the evening. You just need to mix 1/4 cup of chia seeds and 1 cup almond milk in the evening. If you want it to be more filling you can add oats. Put it in the fridge and the next morning it till be nice and creamy. For toppings you can buy frozen raspberries and boil them (in case there’s any bacteria left). You will get sort of a jam that you can add to the chia pudding in the morning. Other nice toppings can be cinnamon, honey, fresh fruits, nuts.

I think avocado and toast with some tomatos, cheese/ham is a great one and easy. Also a couple of fried eggs on top of spinach/tomato on a slice of bread. Usually takes me like 10 mins tops to prepare and less to eat since i am a fast eater.
Alexander A.
Make a big batch of overnight oats on Sundays. Then, pack each individual portion in a to-go container. If you run out of time in the morning, take your breakfast to go.

You can also make individual omelettes in a muffin tin. Make a big batch on Sunday and then microwave individual portions each morning.

Honorato Q.
Eggs don't actually take that long to cook. If you put an egg into water to boil you can be getting on with other things while it's cooking. 3 mins once the water starts to boil and it's ready. Alternatively an omelette takes a little longer but if you prepare what you want in it before bed it'll save some time
Esmirna Z.
Take English Muffins or Bageles, slice them in half, lay them in a pan, put your favorite cheese on them, toast them in your broiler until golden brown. While they are toasting scramble a couple of eggs in avocado oil and slice an avocado, put it together like a breakfast sandwich and you're off.
Josefine Y.
I usually make a batch of egg muffins on the weekend. It’s quick and easy to make and sets me up with breakfast for half the week. Overnight oats are also quick and easy. I add chia seeds for extra protein.
Dave J.
Eggs over easy are very fast. Or boill some for the week..toast, avocado, nut butters, super fast and easy to integrate into schedule
Ulf U.
Hi, in my case when i want to prepare something quick i just eat a toast with butter and a banana. Or oatmeal that i prepared the night before
Celina P.
A smoothie is a good shout because it’s quick to prepare and you drink it, so it’s super quick. Today I had grapefruit, banana, nuts and yoghurt.
Charlie O.
Yogurt of your choice with fruits of your choice. It is super quick and easy – take yogurt out of fridge, take fruits and eat it together. If you have more time, you could put yogurt in the cup/bowl, cut fruits in pieces and put it into the bowl, you could also add oat flakes.
Or you could prepare oatmeal with fruits the evening before, and just Re-heat it in the morning or eat it cold.
Penny Q.
I usually try to make an omelet in the morning. In reality it usually becomes scrambled eggs and sautéed vegetables, such as carrots, onion, and kale/spinach. If the morning doesn’t allow that then I buy a pre-prepared Black Bean salad and use that on buttered and toasted Rye Bread and mashed or sliced avocado which takes at most 10 minutes to makes in the morning.
Th Odore Q.
Toast with pb and sliced banana is a good one. Cottage cheese with tomato and avocado (I like mine with a bit of pepper). Greek yogurt with banana and berries. Things along those lines.
Dylan Z.
What I like to do when I eat breakfast is sort of boring but still really healthy and really easy. I prep a bunch of hard-boiled eggs over the weekend, just enough for the whole week, and peel them and store them in the fridge. I’ll eat four a day, so I make 28 eggs at once. Take about 45 minutes, maybe 30 if I’m peeling fast. In addition to that, I microwave some quick oats with some cinnamon, some artificial sweetener, and banana slices.

Overall it’s super cheap because the only ingredients you use are eggs, oatmeal, cinnamon, artificial sweetener, and bananas, but it still keep me full for a long time while cutting the time needed in the morning. Definitely give it a shot!

Another thing to consider if you’re trying to lose weight is to try intermittent fasting (IF), which is basically only eating in an 6-8 hour window of the day (like noon-8pm). That way your lunch will be your breakfast in the sense of it being when you break your fast. It sounds difficult, but it helps in so many ways. First, it’s easy because you only have to worry about two meals a day. Second, it really builds your ability to resist cravings (yes, even after being fasted for 16 hours). Third, eating breakfast in the morning followed by a lunch in the middle of your workday tends to make people sluggish. By saving breakfast for lunchtime, you’re saving that good morning boost you need for the middle of your day when you need it most, and when you eat dinner at night, you’ll feel more relaxed and sleep more easily. Give it some research 🙂

Good luck!

Olivia E.
Boiled eggs, a quick fruit (banana, apple, pear, etc.), handlful of nuts or if you need meat precooked chicken, ham, sausage. I also love making fritta cups that way I have 3 mornings worth of breakfast with all the essentials packed inside the one meal.
Jackson J.
Anything you can make the night before is great for busy mornings! Recently I’ve been making chia pudding for breakfast. I mix it all the night before: 1 cup soy milk, 1/4 cup chia seeds, a handful of frozen raspberries, and sweetener of your choice. I add cacao powder also (approx. 1 tablespoon). Optionally, you can blend the soy milk and raspberries and a couple of dates before you add the chia seeds for a smoother pudding. Make sure you shake it well after you add the chia seeds to distribute them evenly. It’s packed with antioxidants and fiber and will keep you full for a while. Enjoy!
Ser P.
Greek yoghurt with blueberries and raspberries and handful of nuts, or oatmeal made night before with almond milk and berries in fridge.
Riu N.
Personnally, I buy ready-made avocado mix (organic, with a natural list of ingredients). In the morning, I just put it on gluten-free bread. And that’s it. Sometimes I add an egg for the proteins, depending on my other planned meals.
Edgar Q.
Added Sugar free muesli is my go to with some natural yoghurt or kefir yoghurt.
Sometimes I will do something quick like fruit and yoghurt. The idea is to prep the night before if you have a busy morning so you can put it together and have it before you go. You only need about 10 mins so plan it into your morning the night before.
Developing a routine has helped me immensely
Martiniano N.
The ones I suggested can be made in the weekend and then just heated in the microwave. Did you get my last email? Peanut butter is fast but it never fills me so that is why I didn’t suggest it.
Addison T.
Yogurt and muesli (can prep the yogurt in small containers the night before, then add muesli/fruits/nuts etc in the morning
Max I.
Things that have worked for me: overnight oats I make the night before, usually with some fruit. Or a breakfast bar I make on the weekend, and eat all week. I have to decide I’m worth the time to plan ahead for – otherwise my mornings escape me, too!
Mike F.
You could try owernight oats. When you prepare it in the evening it is ready for you in the morning. There is an infinite amount of variations, but one of my old favorites is whole grain oats with plain yogurt, pomegranate seeds or blueberries, cinnamon and milk (plant-based options work too, for me, especially unsweetened almond milk). You just mix the ingredients and leave it in the fridge overnight.

Figuring out the proportions for a perfect consistency took a few tries but what I really love about overnights oats is that I can really play with the ingredients.

Lately I have experimented with probiotic buttermilk instead of yogurt, 1-2 teaspoons of chia seeds and a variety of different spices.

Ma Lia Z.
I will tell you what I am doing for breakfast
Fry some eggs and add cheese on it so cheese can melt and meet with the wonderful taste of egg
And some milk annnnnd olive this is a great breakfast to me my friend
Dustin O.
Do you have more time in the evening? I like to do batches of overnight oats. Simple, easy and satisfying. Oats. Liquid ( I use either Almond or Soy Milk- plain unsweetened). Add berries or other fruit. Stir in peanut or other nut butter… switch it up ☺️
In the morning just stir it- add a bit more fresh berries/fruit maybe some seeds and or nuts.
I’ll normally do up 3 or 4 small jars ready for the week. I’ll alternate days with avocado toast topped with a homemade Dukka Or a slice of fresh tomato and a bowl of fresh fruit.
Alcione Q.
Breakfast smoothie. No fancy recipes needed or top class blender! Just choose a base of water or milk/dairy free milk or yoghurt. Add some fruit (frozen or fresh). A banana as natural sweetener. Oats for slow release energy Add chia seeds, flax seeds, oats, peanut butter, cocoa powder. Whatever takes your fancy! Enjoy!! 🍌🍎🍊🍓🥭🌞
Tyrone J.
Put oats and vanilla soy milk in a pot and bring to boil and then lower so oats can soften. When cooked remove from heat and put in the fridge over night. When you wake up
Add blueberries, shreded coconut, flax seeds, poppy seeds and cutted almonds and enjoy!
You can add bananas if you like it more sweet!
Maria W.
Make it the night before! With Scottish porridge oats, some chia seeds, little bit of milk and water.. leave overnight in the fridge and voila to eat in the morning!
Patrik O.
I suggest to try rise or corn cakes with peanut butter. The protein from peanut butter will help your energy to last for longer. Rise and corn cakes contain the small amount of carbs, not too little not too much. It’s easy, tasty and super quick. I eat it every morning.
Darryl U.
Good morning.
If I am in hurry in the morning I usually boil two eggs, and make a smoothie (banana, cereals, tumeric and yoghurt or almond milk)
Quick and filling.
Ronnie Z.
I pre-make my own oatmeal mix with 2 tablespoons rolled oats, 1 tablespoon quinoa flakes, 1 tablespoon buckwheat groats, 1 teaspoon chia seeds, 1 teaspoon hemp seeds, a half scoop of Amazing Grass green superfood powder and cinnamon. I make about twelve servings at a time and keep them in little containers in the refrigerator. When I’m ready to eat breakfast I empty one container into a glass bowl, add hot water, a spoonful of peanut butter and stir. I top with sliced banana or blueberries. It’s easy, it’s vegan and I don’t have to think about what to eat every morning.
Thomas O.
Why not a banana or prepackaged apple slices. Whole wheat English muffins work too. Pack it the night before and grab it on your way out.
Anton W.
Look for things you can prepare in bulk or the night before, like overnight oats (oatmeal). My go to breakfasts consist of one or more of eggs, fruit (bananas, apples, berries), or a type of blended oats cereal. When I'm in a hurry, I will grab a jar of overnight oatmeal I made ahead of time, or a nature valley granola bar and a fruit or yogurt I can take in the car with me. Hope this helps!
Oliver A.
Old fashioned oats with cinnamon, chia seeds and flax seed (to add some fibers). Add water and microwave for 2minutes. Add a fruit of your choice, e.g apple or banana
Samuel B.
Svelte organic protein shakes are a quick, easy, and tasty meal replacement that works well for breakfast on the run. I'm partial to their chocolate offering. Each flavor has a positive, sizable blurb written on it, too. Regardless, they are filling and get me to lunch without hunger.
Sami C.
Yogurt parfait with fruit, hard boiled egg with avocado and/or salmon, avocado toast, pre-cooked chicken breast with salsa, oatmeal with nuts
Marionice O.
Cutting up fruit the night before works. Or just grabing an apple whole and timing a piece of whole grain toast to your morning shower time
Christina O.
Scrambled eggs are really quick. Sautee some veg in the same pan beforehand. You could also have things you don’t need to cook – cold meats, cheeses, olives. You can get porridge that you can do in the microwave. Top with goji berries, seeds and nuts.
Leona C.
I had the exact same problem! I don't have enough time in the mornings to do eggs or anything so I had weetabix, which are actually pretty healthy, and a piece of granary seeded toast. Hopefully this helps!
Giselle I.
The quickest breakfast is cereal and milk-you just need to look for a high protein low sugar cereal. Kashi has some tasty but good for you options.
Catherine W.
I drink smoothies. Organe Protein powder, banana, milk and ice. Zip! Fast and enough protein to keep me going all morning.
George O.
Все зависит от целей что вы преследуете. Если нужны углеврды, то я бы рекомендовал овсяную кашу быстрого приготовления, та что заливаешь кипятком на 3 минуты и не нужно варить. Просто добавляете изюм и орехи и завтрак готов + апельсиновый сок + банан и часа на 2-3 желудок наполнен.
Если нужен белок, то рекомендовал бы шейкер протеиновой смеси.
Ellen O.
1 minute oatmeal is my favorite! i add chia seeds or ground flax seed and sometimes some berries. also, you can add agave syrup if you like it a bit sweeter.
Adiel N.
Typically I make 2 over medium eggs, a piece of toast and spread Avocado. I can do all of this in under 15 minutes because it's simple and well balanced. But if you are looking for a quicker routine I also drink protein shakes and eat some fruit which can be done in about 5 minutes. The last one I do is eat some salami, nuts and fruit which is pretty quick and easy too. If possible, set your alarm a little earlier just to make time because breakfast is important 😊
Julie C.
I drink Herbalife shakes in the mornings, I find theyre brilliant to get my day started and super healthy! I add protein powder to help me stay fuller for longer and also helps lose weight!
Tobias W.
I usually prep my breakfast for the week. Overnight oats is the easiest thing to prep. I got all my recipes for those on YouTube. When that gets old I always have fruit on standby. Eggs coor really fast and you can get egg beaters (carton of pre/cracked eggs) to save time from cracking eggs. If all else seems like too much prep work, I suggest a really good meal replacement shake.
Brennan Z.
Recently, I’ve been prepping breakfast burritos and bowls or overnight oats in advance so all I have to do is reheat them.

When I dont have as much prep time and have to cook each morning, I toast a piece of whole grain bread, sauté 1 cup of spinach, and fry 2 eggs. Stack them as an open sandwich, top with salsa, and eat with a fork (don’t try to pick it up!).

Lillie A.
If you're really busy, I can recommend I mix it in the kitchen, takes 1–2 minutes, then take it to work and drink it at my desk.
That being said, it's usually worth waking up a bit earlier to make sure one's morning routine is solid—if at all possible.

I often have porridge in oat milk with a huge spoon of peanut butter these days! 🙂

Iwan O.
Egg muffins, made on the weekend and frozen so you can reheat them in the microwave even if you’re running out the door. That with a piece of fruit keeps me going
Amber J.
Vegan Chocolate protein powder, half a banana and a spoon of peanut butter whizzed together with some water to make a morning smoothie – enjoy 🙏🏻
Kay Uwe Z.
I make s really good green drink and store it in jars, then I can grab and drink on the way or at my desk .
Also I love Raisin Bran w blueberries and milk- super fast.
Naja W.
Overnight oats soaked over night in on bowl, Greek yogurt and banana in another. Bang them together in the morning and leave the house
Linda W.
I take 25 grams of homemade muesli, consisting of oatmealflakes, steeds and kernels like sunflower, pumpkin, quinoa, etc. I also adjust all kinds of unsalted nuts, like pecannuts, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts and many more. I spice it up with some grounded cinnamon and curcuma . I ad 125 grams of skinny French quark and 125 grams of skinny yoghurt. Mix it up and enjoy. Ready in a few minuten.
Dale P.
Yes,I start my days either with some boiled eggs or my favorite yoghurt with nuts,serials,raisins,bananas,apples cut into pieces,and some granola😍 sometimes I cook the apples,bananas and raisins with some cinnamon in a pan😊

It is a really good breakfast❤️

Mery O.
You can make milkshakes or any type of shakes. You only have to put the milk (if you want milk) and the fruit you want in a blender, wait for a couple minutes and it's done.
Terrance T.
Yes, I have 2 amazing recipes with a short prep time.
1st one : cut an avocado in half, then cut each half to small cubes and put them in a bowl, finally add honey to make sweet, but if you want to make it savory add garlic powder and onion powder with red summac and pomegranate molasses
2nd one : put half a cup of oats ( any kind of oats it doesn’t matter) with hot water ( water must reach to the top of the oats not the bowl) then add 2tbsp of honey and 2tbsp of peanut butter.
Arnd F.
Overnight oats are good, lots of different recipes to choose from and a good source of slow release energy. Or porridge with cinnamon, turmeric, cranberries and a spoonful of almond butter on top.
Vanessa O.
If you prep veggies the night before, you can make an egg scramble with veggies and cheese pretty quickly. Or overnight oats with Greek yogurt in them for protein. I also make breakfast sandwiches as a meal prep and freeze them, and then pop them in the microwave in the morning. Meal prepping on a weekend day to freeze helps a lot because there’s zero prep time during the week, but even the night before helps out.
Laura Z.
If the morning are busy – better to prepare breakfast the night before – like in the good old days with the table ready

Oatmeals soaked
Ready to go smoothie
Fruits ready to swallow wt boiled eggs

Margot N.
My favorite breakfast ever is quick oats mixed milk and fruits. It’s nutricious, tasty and just takes 15 minutes to prep. Try it with bananas, mango or strawberries!
Ariane Z.
Yes, you can make quick breakfast which are balance. What I usually do is get a chilled fresh fruit from my fridge. I can boil an egg or make it to a scramble where I add greens. I want to avoid sugary and oily food as much as possible. I eat white rice only if I have a heavy load work for the day. Usually just simple food that doesn't need preparation.
Francis J.
To me what works best is oat with vegetable milk and some fresh fruit that I prepare the night before or in the morning depending on the time I have and I roast almonds once a week and eat some with this breakfast 🙂
Joris Y.
I'm busy in the morning too with school and getting to the bus but you could always have a banana or through together a quick bagle sometimes I have to eat on the bus but I make sure I eat breakfast and fabulous has helped me do that
C Lian Y.
170-200g of Greek Yoghurt with honey, and a bit of cinnamon is my, I got 5 minutes to eat. And it keeps you full for a while. Add raisins for more consistency 🙂
Katherine F.
I have smoothies for breakfast if I'm rushed for time. Yogurt, banana, berries, 1 x scoop of vanilla protein powder, chia seeds.
Diana X.
I use a complete meal replacement shake called Lean, comes in milk chocolate (legit tastes like chocolate milk) and creamy vanilla. They are delicious, super clean ingredients, no sugar and not just protein! It’s been a game changer for me! And it’s super affordable too!
Pauline W.
2 hard boiled eggs, and a cup of oatmeal. You can boil 4 eggs at night and keep them in the fridge. You can add milk to dry oatmeal at night. In the morning, you just get the eggs and overnight oatmeal right away
Lidwina B.
Own made musli. Buy oatmeal, few kinds of nuts (Italian, brazilian, hazelnuts, etc.), chia seeds, chocolate, sunflower seeds, raisins and whatever you think will be healthy and tasty. Mix it and Blend it and next add Hot water. Voilea.
Engelbert J.
Make a granola with a good oil and dried fruit and nuts. Once it’s made just add fruit and almond milk and your good to go
