Breakfast inspiration for rushed mornings

For most high schoolers, the act of quickly grabbing a handful of cereal or only drinking a glass of juice on the way out the door is all too familiar. Often times, most don’t even have time to eat anything before their long day in the classroom. Skipping breakfast affects how well someone functions throughout the day, proving that it is a crucial meal that is not to be skipped.


Fancy (but still easy) toast!

Toast is always a given for breakfast, but why not spruce it up? Whether it’s avocado, peanut butter or fruit, adding certain ingredients to your toast makes all the difference.

  • The basic avocado toast

Adding avocado to toast does wonders, and is easy to make too! Simply toast a piece of bread (any bread works, it’s personal preference), and mash avocado on top. For extra flavor, add a sprinkle of salt and cherry tomatoes. Again, it’s all personal preference, so be creative with what you add!

  • The simple but sweet toast

After toasting the bread, spread peanut butter (or any other nut butter) and add sliced up bananas on top. As an extra addition, top it off with a drizzle of honey and/or chia seeds.

  • The dessert for breakfast toast

Simply add nutella (any nut butter would work too) and strawberries on top of your toast to make breakfast that tastes like dessert. Chia seeds are also a great addition to this breakfast.


Yogurt and fruit galore!

Options including smoothies and yogurt are the perfect choice for a healthy, but filling breakfast.

  • The perfect yogurt parfait

Restaurant parfaits are good, but why not make one yourself? Add any type of fruit and granola to the yogurt of your choice for a tasty and easy breakfast option! Other recommended additions include chia seeds, honey or coconut flakes.

  • The classic smoothies that you can’t resist

In terms of smoothies, it all comes down to personal preference! But here are some tips:

For fruit smoothies, add a base such as water, orange juice or coconut/almond milk. Afterwards, add frozen fruit to the blender and blend all of the ingredients together.

  • The elaborate apple slices

  • The breakfast popsicle

To make these lovely breakfast popsicles, yogurt and fruit are the only needed ingredients! Cut up the fruit of your choice and mix it with yogurt. Pour the mixture into a plastic cup with a popsicle stick. Freeze overnight to eat the next morning!

Tip: make extra popsicles so you can eat them throughout the week.

With these suggestions in mind, hopefully breakfast will become more of a priority in the mornings before school!
