It is so lovely to wake up without an alarm, eat when hungry and at the pace desired. Ahhhh. It happened a lot for my son this summer (who had his first summer job and so not everyday), some for Mr. Bigg Sis, and even a little for me.
Despite the beauty of the changing leaves and crisp air and fresh apples, it is a sad fact of Autumn that the opportunities for this type of morning generally are less frequent. However, as a former teacher, as a mother, and as a human who wakes up hungry, I can attest to the fact that a healthy breakfast sustains better performance in, and appreciation of work and school. But who has time to make a healthy breakfast? I thought you might enjoy a list of the fast but healthy breakfast ideas we have shared over the last several years….. and there were quite a few! This list does not include our many pancake recipes as they do take more time. I do recommend however that if you make pancakes or french toast on the weekend, make a lot and freeze the leftovers on a tray or plate. When frozen, remove from plate and place in a plastic bag in the freezer for a supply of fast breakfast during the week!
However, these all are fast, or can be put together the night before and, of course are made from wholesome, healthy ingredients that will keep you and your family members running on full steam until lunch! Enjoy and please share any fast breakfast tips that you use 🙂
Head out the door with something hearty in your belly that does not lead to a sugar crash, headache, fatigue or hunger pangs in a few short hours. And enjoy all of the benefits of the end of summer and the beginning of a cool, crisp autumn!
