I just read an awful article about eating healthy at fast food (gag!) so I thought I would share some tips for healthy breakfasts for those on the go.
One day a week ( like Sunday!) spend an hour making breakfasts for the week, here are the 3 that I find are the easiest and cheapest to make.
- Whole grain waffles are super easy to make and you can make a giant stack in very little time. They freeze well, take 30 seconds to microwave and you can eat them with turkey & cheese or honey & fruit. When freezing lay them on a tray for an hour then store in a freezer bag, this will ensure they don’t stick together. Cost=less than 5 cents a waffle 25 cents with toppings
- Breakfast burritos take a bit more work but are oh so worth it. Scramble a dozen eggs (tip add a splash of cream and a 1/2 tsp baking powder to make them fluffy) , add diced meat of choice ( or none for veggie) I use turkey slices, add veggie of choice ( green onion and red pepper are the bomb.com). In a whole wheat tortilla add about 1/4 c egg/meat/veggie mixture and a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Roll into burrito and wrap in plastic. This usually makes about a dozen-15 burritos depending on how many topping I use. They re-heat surprisingly well and only take a minute to heat up. Cost= about 75 cents a burrito if it’s loaded with veggies and meat 🙂
- Oats on the go– In sandwich bags add 1/2 c quick oats, 1 tbsp brown sugar, dried fruit of choice. When you want to eat it just add some water and microwave for 30 seconds. cost is like a penny a bag and if you buy in bulk at winco you can have endless to go bags. Re-use the bags or use a mason jar for easy transport and a bowl in one.
