Since beginning my journey to a healthier me this year, I’ve learned just how important having breakfast every morning is. In the past, breakfast was often a meal I skipped, instead just whipping up something quickly for the kids and then dashing to complete my morning tasks: feed the baby, change the baby’s soiled sheets (every darn morning!), make the beds, pack lunches, and get everyone in the car for school. It was easier for me to skip breakfast, I didn’t have time to make myself anything since I was always tending to the needs of my little people. Things have changed a little since those breakfast skipping days as I saw some real results when I made myself eat a nutritious breakfast in the mornings.

When I started making breakfast a priority, I saw changes in my metabolism, energy, and attitude. I didn’t realize just how important it was to being successful for my weight loss and health, but the benefits were clear. My only problem was time. I came up with several instant breakfast solutions that made sure I had no excuse to not eat every morning. Since implementing these simple and easy to prep meals, I never forget my breakfast and I don’t have to sacrifice my morning tasks to get the essential nutrition my body needs.

1. Berry and fruit bowls: Berries are one of my favorite snacks, so they were usually on my shopping list anyway. However, I never had the time in the mornings to clean and cut them. I started cleaning and cutting strawberries and raspberries as soon as I came home from the grocery store and putting them in a large bowl, mixing them together. In the morning, I just pull out the bowl, put some in a smaller bowl and enjoy!

2. Hard boiled eggs: I love eggs in the morning, but scrambling them up between getting the kids ready by myself was never a real option for me. I found a good way to get my egg fix was to hard boil a half dozen or so eggs on Sunday, that way I’d have a hard boiled egg waiting for me in the fridge to quickly peel and eat before jetting out the door to get the kids to school.

3. Freezer burritos: Making breakfast burritos ahead of time and wrapping them up for the freezer is one of my favorite instant breakfast indulgences. Add whatever you like inside each burrito, for me it’s scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and lots of hot sauce. Wrap them up in saran wrap and then again in tinfoil and pull them out for a quick breakfast that you can heat up in the microwave.

4. NestlĂ© Carnation Breakfast Essentials: My more frequently used instant breakfast solution is a cold morning drink made with NestlĂ© Carnation Breakfast Essentials Powder. Chocolate for breakfast? I’ll take any excuse to enjoy a tasty glass of chocolate milk! It’s fast, simply mix one packet with one cup of cold non-fat milk, and enjoy. Plus, each prepared serving includes 21 vitamins and minerals and 13 grams of protein to keep you fueled throughout the morning.
