Ready, Set, Break(fast)!

By Najja Parker

How many times do you hit the snooze button before actually stumbling out of bed? (Answer greater than zero? #NoShame) Besides, we all know beauty sleep is essential to killing it in the classroom. But so is breakfast. We get it — catching those last few Z’s can seriously cut it into your morning meal time, but before skipping it altogether, try these quick (healthy and delicious) ideas to help you stay on top of your game.

Green Goodness Smoothie
Racking up some much-needed doses of vitamins and minerals before first block is easy! Just throw all the ingredients in a blender, and turn it on high speed for about a minute. Drink up and enjoy!

What you need:
2 cups unsweetened vanilla coconut milk
2 medium bananas
2 medium mangoes, skin and pit removed
1/2 cup frozen pineapples
1 pack frozen young coconut puree
2 scoops plant-based protein powder
1 tbs hemp seed powder
1 tbs super seed mix

 

Veggie-Egg Muffin
The best thing about this? You’ll have breakfast ready-made for at least a week! Get started by first preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Then, beat your eggs, and stir in your veggies and seasonings. After coating your muffin pan with olive oil, fill each cup about ¾ of the way, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Finish off just right by adding the cheese 5 minutes before the timer rings.

What you need:
8 eggs
spinach
red bell pepper
red onion
shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
olive oil
muffin tray

 

Berry Fruity Quesadillas
Throwing a fiesta for your mouth is a great way to get hyped for the day ahead — and what better way to do that than with delicious breakfast quesadillas? Grab your tortillas, and spread some cream cheese on one side. Next, add chopped blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries on top. Fold the wrap over, and you’re good to go. Eat them chilled or give them a quick three-minute flip on each side on the stove.

What you need:
whole wheat tortillas
blueberries
raspberries
strawberries
cream cheese

 

Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
Not a fan of traditional oatmeal? You may like this crunchier, more cereal-like version. Here’s how to make sure it’s ready to grab and go in the morning: Combine your oats and vanilla almond milk in a mason jar, and place it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add the chopped apple and cinnamon (or other fruit combo you prefer) … and yummm.

What you need:
½ cup rolled oats
½ cup vanilla almond milk
Fuji apple (or other fruit)
Cinnamon to taste
Mason jar
