Wink Need tips for quick healthy breakfasts!

Does anyone have quick healthy breakfast recipes for a working mom? I'm restarting my goals of healthy eating, moving and this would help me get off to a good start! Thanks :coffee 2:

When I want a protein-filled and filling breakfast, I scramble up eggs/eggbeaters and reheat them quickly in the microwave and can use them with a high-fiber tortilla for a breakfast burrito with a piece or two of turkey sausage, which heats up in less than a minute in the micro, too. ... Easy to take on the go. Also use some with a 100 cal english muffin for a scrambled egg sandwich.

Cereal always seems to work for me, too - gets in a dairy and if I'm in a hurry, i'll take my milk to drink and eat my cereal dry in the car ...

Peanut butter is often part of my breakfast, too - (if you have a Trader Joe's near you, their peanut butter is superb!).

Good luck!

when the kids start school again I know my mornings are going to be super busy...my normal go to breakfasts are healthier versions of the egg mcmuffin (I cook my egg in a microwave cooker, add a slice of turkey bacon & low calorie toasted english muffin)

I usually do a Starbucks Energy drink-has 200 calories and 12 g of protein. Sometimes I will also do a banana or oatmeal. Just depends on the day.

my new breakfast is a protein shake. I know its not bacon and eggs,but its easy and I can drink it on my way to work and 41 grams of protein for abt 300 cals definately holds me until lunch if work is crazy and I can't snack.

8 oz of milk, 1 sugar free carnation instant breakfast and a scoop of unflavored protein power. Tastes like chocolate milk!

I love my smoothie! 1 cup of soy milk, 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder, one banana, one tbs of ground flax seed. This keeps me hunger free until late morning.

Thanks for posting this. I don't normally eat breakfast, I never have, even when I was young. But I read an article recently that talked about how people who are losing weight are more successful at losing and maintaining the loss in the long run if they eat breakfast.
I usually only drink coffee in the morning, I need to eat something but I'm not sure what would be best. Carbs, protein, fruit? a combination? I'm assuming just as long as it is something it should at least be a start.

I also read there is some sort of link in people who drink milk daily, they are more successful at losing weight, although I think the real link is not to milk but to the calcium in milk.

I love a bowl of steel cut oatmeal. I make 8-9 servings about once a week in my crockpot, portion it out and warm up in the microwave every morning.

The quickest one I know is a couple of hard boiled eggs. Instant protein bombs.

I LOVE egg muffins...they are so good. Packed full of protein so they get you going in the morning. Essentially I just take eggs, a bunch of veggies, canadian bacon, pour it all together in a muffin tin and cook it. Then they can be reheated for 30 secs in the microwave in the morning. YUM!

I heat up two morningstar farms patties in the microwave, spread 1 laughing cow wedge on some dave's killer bread(toasted) and a cup of light soymilk.
