Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, but the unfortunate reality is mornings are often the most rushed part of the day, especially for busy families. It can be a real challenge to get breakfast on the table at the best of times.
If you have a carton of eggs in the fridge you have the makings for a hot and nutritious meal that takes minutes to prepare. Eggs contain a punch of protein that’s really important in the morning—it keeps you feeling fuller longer—and a balanced breakfast will give you the energy you need to fuel your daily activities.
Here are a few easy breakfast ideas that can be ready in less than five minutes:
If you’re really pressed for time you can always do some prep work the night before. Arrange grated cheese, diced ham, and chopped veggies on a plate, cover with plastic, and pop it in the fridge for a super fast omelette the next morning. Or, make these Mini Ham and Cheddar Frittatas on Sunday for the week ahead.
Grab and go meals are also a great option for busy families. This Breakfast Sandwich or Mediterranean Breakfast Bagel only takes a few minutes to pull together. Wrap them in a piece of paper towel and take it to go! Whether you’re heading to work, walking to the bus stop, or fueling up for swim practice, a breakfast that includes eggs is a great way to start the day.
