11 Healthy On-the-Go Breakfast Options

We all love a good, healthy breakfast, but most of us don’t have time! I have compiled a list of my top 10 favorite, healthy breakfasts that you can rather make with little time or can make ahead to have when you don’t have any time! Some are great for on the go, or you can eat right before you leave to start your day!


Greek Yogurt and Granola // on the go & at home // I love getting the different flavors of Chobani Greek Yogurt. They always are so yummy especially paired with your favorite granola. You can even get the plain greek yogurt and add in the flavors you want with fruit, vanilla extract, etc. I recommend Bare Naked, Kind Granola or locally made. When you buy a container of granola, I would measure out each serving size into different baggies or containers to have available to you to grab and go when you want for a quick on the go breakfast.


Avocado Toast // At home in no time // Lightly toast whole wheat bread and than mash up some avocado on it. Sprinkle some salt and pepper to taste. Add a sunny-side up egg if you want to include some protein. This is easy to make while you are getting ready, I use to do this every morning my sophomore year of college. Toast the bread while you get ready. Cooking a sunny-side up or fried egg takes only a few minutes. And TA-DA you have a beautiful, healthy breakfast in no-time.

Bacon, Egg and Spinach Sandwich // At home or on the go // Cook some bacon to your liking, be sure to dab as much grease off as you can. I sometimes make bacon ahead of time when I meal prep. Toast two slices of whole wheat bread. Cook one sunny-side up egg, I like to add cheese and than spinach right into the dish. I put it together going toast, cheesy egg, bacon, lots of spinach and than the other piece of toast. This recipe is also easy to adjust to your liking. You can add more vegetables, such as avocado or onions. Try scrambled eggs, instead of a fried egg or sunny-side up egg. Mix up your bread choice or turn it vegetarian.

Smoothies // On the go or at home // Smoothies are great for on the go! Toss some oats or yogurt, bananas, berries almond milk and ice into a blender and BAM, a meal on the go! BONUS: pre-make the smoothie mix and just toss in the blender when you want it. I like to keep half of bananas frozen in the freezer, and in my nutri-bullet have berries, yogurt, protein powder or whatever you like and when you go to make it, toss the banana and liquid into your nutri-bullet and you’re set.

Breakfast Burrito // At home & on the go, can make ahead // This one I would suggest making ahead of time! Just take a tortilla, fill with scrambled eggs, refried beans, cheese, a little bit of salsa and sour cream, wrap it up and you got yourself a yummy breakfast burrito. Feel free to switch ingredients for your preference, such as adding guacamole, spinach, onions, etc. I recommend wrapping in moist paper towel and then aluminum foil and it is safe to freeze in a plastic bag. When you want to reheat, leave it in just the paper towel and your set to pop in the microwave.

Fruity Breakfast Quinoa // On the go, at home, and make ahead // Cook the quinoa in almond milk. Cooking ahead of time or in meal prep is great in saving time. Mix in some spices like cinnamon and add in your favorite berries. This is just like a hot cereal, but full of protein and essential amino acids! Some people even add some chopped roasted nuts too. Store in some mason jars and you can make the whole thing in advance and store in the fridge.

Peanut Banana Toast // At home in no time, on the go at own risk // Toast a piece of whole wheat bread. Spread on some of your favorite Peanut Butter for protein, I love Trader Joes Sunflower Seed Butter. Slice some bananas and plop those on top! You get all the protein and vitamins you need and it’s one of the simplest things you can make. I usually sprinkle on some chia seeds also.

Waffle PB&J // At home in no time // Toast or cook a whole wheat waffle (for time I would use an Eggo). Put your favorite peanut butter on top (or Trader Joes Sunflower Seed Butter if you’re like me) and slice strawberries on top as your jam. Just like the peanut butter toast, you get your salty, sweat, protein and vitamins.

Egg Roll-Up // On the go, at home, always make ahead // Take a tortilla and fill with an even layer of cheesy eggs. Next layer with an even layer of spinach. Add any other healthy ingredients. Roll up and enjoy on the go! (Make sure to include lots of the super-food Spinach) This dish is similar to a breakfast burrito, just more for the people with simple taste.

Avocado Egg // At home in no time // Half an avocado and take the pit out. Scoop out a little bit more of the avocado. Crack an egg into the whole you just made. Sprinkle with a little bit of cheese, salt and pepper. Cook it in the oven until it is cooked, but still runny or however you like it.


Chia Pudding // On the go & make ahead //  I usually make a coconut version of this. Take coconut and put at the bottom of the mason jar. Fill 2/3 with coconut milk, I use unsweetened and sweeten myself with rather vanilla extract or agave. Add a tablespoon or so of chia seeds. Stir and refrigerate. You can top it with a berry component or toasted coconut and nuts. {Recently added}


I hope you all enjoy these recipes. They are super yummy and healthy! I love how you can make them with little time, ahead of time, or take them on the go!
