Breakfast Ideas for School Days



I'm not the type of person who can eat nothing in the morning and wait until lunch to have a meal. I've never passed out, but if I skipped a meal, I think I would probably pass out. I eat a decent sized breakfast on school days, because having a "real" breakfast, aka a real meal for breakfast, has always been a part of my routine and it's something that I'm just so used to doing that I don't think twice about it. However, I know that the idea of eating an entire meal right when you wake up sounds foreign to some people. I have friends who don't eat breakfast because they're "not hungry". The fact of the matter is that your body has gone so long without food (usually 8-10 hours), that it will take a little bit for it to show you that it's hungry. It's important to realize this so you eat right away and avoid sending your body into starvation mode right off the bat in the morning. Here are some of my favorite breakfast options...

Granola + Milk | If you have never tried Bear Naked granola, you are seriously missing out. As much as I love the "Honey Almond", the Banana and Nut flavor has got to be my favorite. Seriously, it's so good.

Yogurt | Yogurt is an extremely easy option when you get the self serving containers, and it gives you a lot of the necessary nutrients to start your day well and keep you full. I've found that I prefer greek yogurt for their taste, and they provide a lot of protein which helps you stay fuller longer and have more energy throughout the day.

Naked Acai Smoothies | Hands down my favorite thing to have for breakfast is a Naked Acai Machine Smoothie. These things are the bomb. Not only are they delicious, but they are packed with marvelous ingredients and accompany a fruit salad or a bowl of cereal perfectly. They also can be taken on the go or shared between two people for a perfectly portion controlled snack.

What are your favorite school day breakfast options?

  5. I completely agree with you on the importance of eating a good breakfast - how do you expect your brain to able to function at work or school without fuel?

    I'm a huge fan of stove-top oatmeal, overnight oats, or healthy pancakes :)
