2. Peach and Blackberry Yogurt Bowl
A lot of people are surprised when I recommend yogurt bowls as an on-the-go option, but hear me out. It may not be something you’re eating in the car during your morning commute, but you can certainly assemble it in less than 10-minutes and take it with you as you run out the door.
The night prior, quickly grab your favorite food storage container and toss your yogurt of choice inside. Then the next morning as you’re heading out the door, grab the container, toss in your toppings, close the container and give it a shake. As soon as you get to your destination, you have a delicious, nourishing breakfast waiting for you!
I love this peach and blackberry yogurt bowl because the only work you have to do is chop a peach. Everything else just gets added with ease.
3. Veggie Egg Bake
Grab-and-go options need to be prepared quickly and easy to travel with. This veggie egg bake is just that! You can make it up to a month in advance and store it in the freezer, or two weeks in advance and keep it in the refrigerator.
It’s a great way to get a protein-packed breakfast without having to scramble up some eggs when you’re rushing around in the morning!
4. Simple Mango Chia Pudding
Just like the egg bake above, this Simple Mango Chia Pudding is a great breakfast option to prep in advance for a busy week ahead. It’s great because you can prepare single servings, that way if you’re only busy on one or two mornings, you can prep the exact amount that you need.
This chia pudding is so satiating due to the chia seeds! You can prep these in mason jars to make them super travel-friendly.
5. Cherry Cardamom Bircher Muesli
If you’re not a fan of chia seed pudding or simply don’t enjoy the taste, muesli is a great alternative. It too can be prepped the night before in single-serving amounts, it just has a slightly different taste and texture.
It’s made with all raw ingredients, which means less prep time in the kitchen. Plus, it’s packed with energizing starchy carbohydrates, and antioxidant-filled cherries.
