It is important to start your day on the right foot + fueling yourself for the day ahead. Some days we may want to catch a *few more* zzz’s, then find ourselves running out the door with little time for breakfast. If you’re fueling up for a sweat sesh or headed to work, we’re sharing some of our favorite quick breakfast ideas —
Protein bars, breakfast bars, granola bars are quick breakfast bites that requires little cleanup [+ pair well with coffee ; )]. When picking your bar, try to find one with minimal ingredients. Find a well-rounded bar that will keep you full + energized through the morning // until your next meal. If you want something homemade, head over to the blog for our favorites energy bars + bites, like the Maple-Cranberry Granola Bars — yum!
If you want to keep it quick in the AM, include preparing ingredients in your weekly meal prep plan. Once you’re ready for breakfast, pop a piece of bread in the toaster + get your toppings ready while it crisps up. Add your toppings, head out the door, ++ take on the day.
Smoothie bowl or classic smoothie — both are great options for a quick breakfast. Grab your favorite ingredients, throw them in the blender, ++ blend away. If you’re going the bowl route, keep it thick so you can add your favorite toppings [+ snag a picture for #CHAARGeats on Insta ; )]. Add the ingredients to your meal prep routine + they become a faster meal to make. Smoothie bowls are great in a tupperware container + are easy to eat at your desk or on the way to your workout.
