Who doesn’t love a classic egg sandwich?

  • Simply saute a hefty handful of spinach and fry 2 eggs with a dash of salt and pepper.
  • Place on top 2 whole-wheat English muffin halves (or toast) with 1 slice of cheddar cheese.
  • Wrap in foil so the cheese melts evenly, and enjoy whenever the craving hits!

2. Homemade Instant Oatmeal

For anyone with a microwave or hot water at their disposal, these customized instant oatmeal packets are fantastic to have on hand.

Instead of purchasing pre-made oatmeal packets, assemble your own in Ziploc baggies using whole rolled oats, cinnamon, and mix-ins like raisins and nuts.

 3. Fruit Soup

There are just two ingredients in this tasty, cool snack: Cold fresh fruit, and cold milk.

  • Combine in a container with 1 cup milk of choice.
  • Keep chilled until ready to enjoy.

 4. Frozen Nutty Banana

  • Cut 1 firm (but ripe) banana in half and un-peal,
  • Arrange on a small baking sheet or freezer-safe plate, and
  • Spread each half with 1 tablespoon almond butter evenly (on the sides not touching the plate).

Here’s the fun part: Stick whatever toppings you like on top of the almond butter—our favorites are granola, chia seeds, or flax seeds and cinnamon. Insert a Popsicle stick or skewer into the cut end of each half, and freeze until solid (at least 2-3 hours).

 5. Whole-Wheat Banana Blueberry Flax Muffins

At 200 calories each, these hearty wholesome muffins make for the perfect portable breakfast. Flax lends a healthy dose of fiber and omega 3 fatty acids. Mashed bananas (one of our favorite healthy baking substitutions allow for a slight reduction in the added fat and sugar in this recipe, too.

Sometimes, simple is just better. In this 2 slices of whole-grain bread, lightly toasted, topped with smashed avocado and a sprinkling of salt and pepper makes for a flavorful and rich base.
